AMI also has additional on-site offices. AMI is one of only two Management Companies in West Florida to have earned the highest national designation for professional management firms. Fewer than 125 firms nationwide hold the AAMC designation.

Corporate Philosphy

  • Each Association is unique and a custom management plan will be developed to serve the physical requirements of the property, the administrative requirements of the Board and the level ofservice requirements of the members.
  • A Licensed Community Association Manager and their own dedicated Assistant will be assigned to the Association to develop a detailed understanding of the property and Association requirements.
  • AMI will work through the assigned Manager to provide unique, centralized team support for administrative, professional and service requests, and communications for Directors and Association members.
  • AMI believes that Associations are best served when service contracts are independent and competitively bid. AMI has no captive or affiliated service companies and receives no fees or gratuities from Association contractors or suppliers. All discounts and savings accrue to the Association.
