A true visionary in the common interest development industry, Melissa Layton formed her first community association management company in 1987, when she saw a need  developing as more developments were being built. She started her business with her

first client, the developer of Ironwood County Club, and as she realized the need to offer close personalized association management services, she formed Desert Resort Management. Melissa’s vision was successful, and she grew her first community association management company, Desert Resort Management (Palm Desert, CA). In 2010 her company successfully managed over 170 Associations and after 25 years under her direction she decided to retire.

In 2013, after Melissa had decided to retire, an opportunity presented itself that she could not refuse and she purchased Buck Reynolds Corporation; inclusive of Property Management Services and Nevada Association Management (Bullhead City, AZ). Her boutique management company now benefit from over 40 HOA communities, comprised of over 7,200 satisfied residents. In her true idealistic way, Melissa Layton wanted to once again own a community management company in Palm Desert. Therefore, she formed Premier Community Association Management(PCAM) serving Southern California in 2021.
