When we founded Associa 35 years ago, community association management was fairly new and the market pretty small. We believed that homeowners who chose to live in a community association did so with higher expectations than most, and we wanted our company to be a leader whose clients could depend upon us for integrity, reliability, and security.
At Associa, we recognize that the primary reason you hire a management company is to take care of your community. Be it the maintenance of the common areas, keeping the pool clean, or managing your vendors and the bills, you want someone to handle it professionally and with attention to detail. That’s what we do. In fact, from your local community manager to our corporate management team, we’ve all managed communities, and you’ll find that nobody has the expertise that we do when it comes to doing the job right. We’ve been there before, so you can relax knowing that we’ve got it covered; we know exactly what it takes to help your community succeed.
More than three decades later, both the industry and Associa have changed and grown dramatically, but we’ve never wavered in our passion for bringing the best and most innovative services to community associations everywhere. Indeed, our clients will attest that when it comes to exceptional community management, nobody does it better than Associa. We invite you to contact us and to learn more about the great company we’ve built.
