Northwest Communities was established in 2021 with the vision of creating the best association management company in Idaho. The founders were passionate with all aspects of managing the various community types but found themselves limited being employees. With an increased level of service, consistent follow-through, effective communications, and industry leading strategies Northwest Communities is dedicated to your community. Through the years they have made countless professional connections in Idaho and Washington with property owners, real estate agents, insurance agents, landscape maintenance companies, contractors, and other community managers.
The two founders, Samantha Ruby and Kristine Banister, met as co-workers at an association management company in Coeur d’Alene Idaho in 2015. Samantha worked as a Portfolio Community Manager and oversaw 23 communities which included The Landings HOA in Coeur d’Alene, Lost Creek HOA and Water System in Athol, Cherry Blossom Court Condos in Coeur d’Alene and many others. Kristine worked as the Controller and oversaw the accounting department with 70 association clients. She supervised the employees in the accounting department as well as directly managed all financial duties for 8 more intricate communities. Both left that company in 2017 and remained friends. Samantha started working for an association management company in Boise and Kristine moved on to be a project manager in the Aerospace industry. In 2021, the company Samantha worked for sold to another association management company and she had the opportunity to hire a co-worker in North Idaho. Kristine and Samantha were able to work together as a management duo for all of 2021. Their portfolio of communities included the Arrow Point Condominium Association in Harrison Idaho, planned developments by Hayden Homes in Spokane and Clarkston Washington, and communities in Boise, Meridian, Star and Idaho Falls, Idaho. Samantha departed the management company and Kristine transitioned into the Accounting Department serving as the Controller overseeing the financial operations of 127 communities in Meridian, Idaho.
Not being satisfied with the standards of service with the companies they worked for but loving the industry, the duo paired up once again to establish an unsurpassed community management company that utilizes the best practices of the industry accompanied by extensive knowledge and experience.
