Columbia, MD, is a truly unique place to live. Designed by James W. Rouse, the city is made up of ten self-contained communities. Unlike many other cities in Maryland, Columbia is not old. In fact, it was first opened in 1967. Even though Columbia is a major part of the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, it feels like a small town. That is due to the overall design of the ten village communities. Each has its own neighborhoods, downtown area, schools, community centers, and paths.

If you live in Columbia, you know that its ten villages make the town unique. Each village has community associations that need proper HOA management. They need the help of D.H. Bader. Since 1991, we have been providing stellar HOA management services to suburban Maryland, including Columbia.
