We're now helping more Bay Area homeowners than ever before, which is what we loved most about 2019. Let's take a look back on how we helped our members this past year.

Lovers of everything lavish and extravagant will be pleased to hear that more decadent styles are on the horizon, largely thanks to a nostalgic re-imagining of 1920's classic looks.

    What to Expect During Your Home Assessment

    Posted by Michelle Galvez on Nov 14, 2019 6:23:00 AM

    One of the best things about your AAA House Manager Membership is that the benefits begin right away. Whether you decide to start by scheduling a Home Service Visit, Essential Seasonal Maintenance, Virtual Service Visit, or a Home Assessment, your first visit can be held as quickly as three days after becoming a Member.

    If you've already started creating a to-do list of items for us to tackle, but aren't sure how to prioritize it, a Home Assessment is a good place to start. It will be your House Manager's first opportunity to familiarize themselves with your home. After taking a closer look, they'll work with you on what items need to be taken care of right away. They will also put together your Home Health Report, which will identity other issues that may need to be taken care of in the future.
