Our philosophy embodies the ‘brick and mortar’ aspect of efficient management, but also goes beyond that and incorporates a sensitivity to meeting the needs of each resident in terms of health, social and recreational activities and community involvement. Mansermar, Inc. and Mid-America Apartment Management Company, Inc. are committed to efficient, effective management that will meet the needs of owners, lenders, government agencies, and residents. In order to maintain this high standard, a project manager is a key to a successfully operated complex. We use a professional local business as the project manager specializing in housing management procedures to ensure our high standards are met.
We support 64 communities in 14 states across the United States:
Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia
Each community is staffed with personnel according to its needs. Additionally, each site manager is required to become involved with the local community to bring in volunteers and local agencies to assist residents and provide additional services and activities for our residents. Mansermar, Inc. and Mid-America, Inc. provide financial management and controls which meet the needs of the owners and requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, state housing credit agencies, contract administrators, investors, and lenders. This includes the short and long-range budgeting and financial planning, day-to-day bookkeeping functions, and the preparation and filing of appropriate reports with owners, companies, and government agencies.
Our corporate office supervises Managers who operate each Site-Based Management office. Mansermar’s Asset Managers oversee the complete operation, review monthly reports, maintenance reports, day-to-day operations, and determine if additional training is needed to ensure effective productivity. We provide on-site training to all personnel which includes step by step methods of procedures, HUD requirements, LIHTC requirements, occupancy requirements, rent collection procedures, applications, verification requirements, certification, and recertification requirements and purchasing and budgeting requirements. In addition, continued training is provided through periodic meetings and development programs by our asset managers as well as on-site procedure manuals
Mansermar, Inc. was established in 1982, and Mid-America Apartment Management Company, Inc. was established in 1978. We specialize in managing multifamily housing with an emphasis on low and moderate-income housing for the elderly and mobility impaired. We take a vested interest in each of the communities we serve as a result of the length of tenure in these locations and proudly offer quality affordable housing in each of these areas as it works together with the local community to provide other services to our residents as well.
