Celebrating 30+ years of Lifestyle Management through
the professional guidance and support of The Annon Family.
Southern States Management Group (SSMG) is a family-owned business dating back three decades with a forecast of many more to come. With the focus always being on “family first” our group understands what it means to be a “community”! We take great pride in our family centric environment and because of this we currently represent 150+ independently operating master and sub- associations representing over 16,000 assessment paying units. These associations include single family homes, oceanfront luxury condominiums, fee-simple town homes, carriage homes, patio, courtyard, and villa homes as well as numerous mixed-use and commercial units. Annual operating budgets and reserve funds under our supervision exceed $20 and $19.5 million, respectively.
SSMG has been able to demonstrate 30+ years of community management success because we respect what “family” means! Part of our current leadership team has fond memories of working as small children, stuffing envelopes and changing light bulbs, for many clients that we still represent today. Others that work for SSMG came to us by way of family friends dating back to our President’s days in college. His roommate’s son works as a Community Manager and has been with us over thirteen years and has recently begun a family of his own.
Because of our strategic hiring practices and approach, we have been successful in assembling seasoned professionals with diverse backgrounds in economics, accounting, consulting, information technology, public service, realty, public relations and recruiting. We have focused on “family first” which also supports retention and a strong, cohesive expanding team. When there is reliability, collaborative spirits, unique skill sets and trust, the management of a community and the understanding of their needs comes naturally.
Additional, by exposing each professional to the full spectrum of management responsibilities and environments, SSMG is proud of our well rounded, extended family that have the capabilities and experience to address challenges in an effective and efficient manner. Routine dialogue among professionals relative to the current state of affairs of their respective clients also assures that knowledgeable back-up support is readily available on a single moment’s notice. Knowing that we believe in “family first” creates an experience for our employees and clients that demonstrate our unique abilities.
