Who We Are
The Bent Tree West Homeowners' Association (BTWHOA) is a Texas not for profit corporation. It is a separate and distinct organization from The Bent Tree West Swim and Tennis Club and the VIP Dallas Crime Watch Program.
 
Homeowners become members by paying voluntary annual association dues. 
Please note:  For residents of The Estates of Bent Tree West, deed restrictions require mandatory annual dues and membership in the BTW HOA
 
2021 MESSAGE FROM BTW HOA PRESIDENT
 
Hello Neighbors,
 
My name is Reagan Rothenberger, and I am pleased to have been tapped to serve as President of the Bent Tree West Homeowners Association. In my short time here, I have been welcomed warmly by neighbors, and look forward to giving back in this way.
 
Neighborhoods were the original social network. Not a network brought together by screens and electronics, but by streets, spatial relations between structures, and face-to-face relationships. As with any community, what makes it great is not only a built environment, but the people within it. I know that each resident of this neighborhood has some unique ability to share with one another and can contribute towards your HOA’s goals and objectives.
 
I hope that if you are not a dues paying member, you would consider joining. This small annual contribution makes a big difference to our neighborhood. Without a fully funded HOA, we would likely have no cameras, no fully funded VIP Program, no landscaped entries or corridors, no impressive entry signage, and no collective voice to our local leaders. All of these provide real value to current and future homeowners.
 
Something else of value to our residents is this newly updated website. Please make sure to set up an account and sign up to receive emails with updates and HOA notifications. This website will always be one of the primary forms of providing valuable information to the residents of BTW.
 
Whether or not you are able to give monetarily to the HOA, perhaps you would be willing to give of your time? Our committees are always seeking volunteers desiring to help improve any aspect of our neighborhood. Your time would be greatly appreciated, and frankly is needed in order to keep our HOA running smoothly. 
 
Also, I hope you will join me in saying a hearty “thank you” to those who already faithfully serve on our committees and volunteer in numerous ad hoc ways.
 
In closing, perhaps you’ll agree that 2020 was the “year of the neighbor”. I’ve heard of many neighbors - both here and elsewhere - becoming more acquainted due to a stay-at-home lifestyle. As 2020 fades away, I hope that 2021 is a great year not only for our neighborhood, but for you personally.
 
As we look forward to regaining some form of normality in our day-to-day lives, I hope that our community will continue to work together in order to better our neighborhood, not instantly, but incrementally. Please let me know how I might help us achieve that.
 
All the best,
 
Reagan Rothenberger

BE PART OF SOMETHING GREAT!  
Choosing a neighborhood to live in is a big decision.  We all want to get the best 'Bang for our Buck' and helping to maintain the neighborhood we live in can add value to each and every home in the neighborhood.  Every homeowner who pays dues helps cover the cost of maintaining our great neighborhood!
 
In addition:
  • HOA members receive our Directory
  • HOA members may receive BTW HOA Camera Footage when providing the Safety & Security Committee with a valid reason for the request 
  • HOA members are eligible to receive Yard of the Month honors
  • Members have voting rights during the Annual Meeting
  • GOOD KARMA - becoming a member gives you the satisfaction of knowing you are doing your part to help the neighborhood remain a GREAT place to live!
 
WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
Help cover the cost of maintaining our great neighborhood!
Keeping the common areas maintained benefits every resident in Bent Tree West. While we live here, we get to enjoy the great feeling of living in a neighborhood with character and class.  If, or when, we move out, our homes will be worth more as a result of being located in a nice looking neighborhood.  Prospective buyers notice whether the neighborhood is well-maintained and are willing to pay more to live in a neighborhood that is!
 
WHERE DO MY DUES GO?
The dues are billed by the HOA early each calendar year, and are payable upon receipt.  Dues are used to finance the activity and mission of the association, as well as to preserve, protect and maintain the neighborhoods common property, security, landscaping, etc. Your dues are primarily used to pay for the ongoing expenses for maintenance of the entryways and the green spaces along the perimeter of the area.  By keeping our neighborhood looking it’s best, our property values also remain at their highest. By supporting the Homeowners Association, you help to ensure that our neighborhood continues to be a great place to live.  We cannot afford to let our neighborhood’s appearance and infrastructure start going downhill!  Just as realtors will tell you, it’s the “curb appeal” that most influences the salability of an individual home.  It is the overall appearance and maintenance level of our neighborhood’s common areas that greatly influence the desirability of Bent Tree West.
