Top 5 Reasons to Consider Switching Your HOA Management Company


As a Board Member, you rely on your HOA management company to facilitate the day-to-day tasks and responsibilities of the Association. Typically, the relationship between a Community Manager and the HOA Board builds into a smooth and seamless workflow where everyone is happy and the Association flourishes. But, unfortunately, this isn’t always the case for every Association. Sometimes, the Board identifies noticeable gaps in performance, or strong partnerships aren’t built, which leads the entire community to feel the result of poor management.

When issues arise, a tactical conversation with the management company is generally helpful to implement new practices and correct the concerns. Still, if a problem persists and a resolution is not met, it often results in the Association deciding to change management companies.

Here are the top five reasons Boards choose to switch their management company:

Lack of Support Staff

It is important to note that these five reasons are not in any particular order, and usually, the decision to make the switch results from many failed attempts to correct poor performance. Your community management company should prioritize customer satisfaction, create an environment of transparent communication, and have active involvement in your Association.

If your Association is currently experiencing one or more of the reasons listed above and are considering switching HOA management companies, contact AAM today! We would be happy to talk about how AAM can deliver peace of mind to you, your fellow Board Members, and the community.

Making the Change to a New HOA Management Company

Some of the most challenging decisions that board members face involve implementing changes without disruption to the Association. Making a change in management companies is commonly one of those decisions, especially if the Board has never been through a transition to a new management company or has previously had a bad experience. When you make a change to a management company that employs an entire team dedicated to improving the onboarding process, you can rest assured your community and its residents will experience a secure, courteous, and seamless transition.

At AAM, we have a dedicated Transition Team that begins working to guarantee a smooth transition from day one. Our team follows a precise transition plan that benchmarks task completion on 30 | 60 | 90 | 120-day increments, depending on the size of the community. Leveraging the power of technology, communication, and overall experience, AAM can assume management of the Association while simultaneously providing excellent customer service and financial management to the residents without interruption.

As HOA Board Members, you understand the importance of demonstrating integrity and upholding your social responsibility in every decision made.  You should not have to compromise on a positive community management experience due to the uncertainties of changing management companies. AAM takes the guesswork out of the transition; let us show you how.
