Our History

Ghertner & Company was founded on January 8, 1968, by Frank F. Ghertner.  Shortly after starting this real estate company, Mr. Ghertner realized that his company could offer a unique product in the Nashville area - the management of condominium and homeowner associations.  Mr. Ghertner was the first property manager in the state of Tennessee to attain the highly regarded designation of Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) from the Community Associations Institute (CAI), and served as the 1990 President of the Tennessee Chapter of CAI. Mr. Ghertner is also a Certified Property Manager (CPM) as designated from the Institute of Real Estate Management.   The firm’s commitment to professionalism and customer service has resulted in Ghertner & Company growing into one of the largest community association management firms in Tennessee. 

After serving in various roles at Ghertner & Company for over a decade, Frank Ghertner’s sons, Scott Ghertner and Steve Ghertner, assumed ownership and management of Ghertner & Company in 2002 and serve as Co-presidents of the company. Both Scott Ghertner and Steve Ghertner are Certified Property Managers (CPM) as designated from the Institute of Real Estate Management. Scott Ghertner has also attained the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation from the Community Associations Institute (CAI). Scott Ghertner served as the 1998 President of the Greater Nashville Chapter of IREM and the 2002 President of the Tennessee Chapter of CAI.  Frank Ghertner retired from active involvement in the association management business in 2002, but his sons continue to carry on the tradition established by their father more than four decades ago; providing excellence in community association management to all clients.  In fact, this continued excellence is best exemplified by hundreds of testimonials received today, and through the years.
