Dedicated, Honest, and Experienced Professionals
Delivering Superior Management Services.
Mel Herzberger began his property management career in 1970. With more than 40 years experience, he has become one of the most accomplished and respected professionals in Maryland. His reputation as a knowledgeable, diligent, and dedicated business operator has been the catalyst for ACM’s exceptional expansion over the past decade.
Mel has a long-standing commitment to the housing industry; he has served as president of the Home Builders Association of Maryland (HBAM) and the Maryland Institute of Builders. He has devoted his involvement in HBAM to member education and the legislative process, chairing legislative committees from 1978 through 1985. In 1983, Mel was named “Builder of the Year” by HBAM and was elected President in 1987. As HBAM President, he partnered with the late Jim Rouse in raising over one million dollars for Mr. Rouse’s Enterprise Foundation.
Mel served on the Board of Directors for the Chesapeake Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and has served as a member of the Maryland Legislative Action Committee for CAI. He is an activist in Annapolis, Maryland throughout the lawmaking process and strongly influences decisions pertaining to community management and HOA/condominium associations. This involvement enables ACM to have a voice in a critical aspect of the management business that few other companies share. Mel's legislative initiative through the years has been in support of issues that are important to his clients. His commitment to education for those entering the building trade and property management fields, his advocacy for legislation to clarify the transition and warranty process for condominiums/HOAs, and his support for standardized community management contract language, demonstrate unwavering resolve to find solutions that further promote ethical real estate management practices.
