The National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) and Buyers Access—a provider of purchasing optimization services and customized purchasing solutions to the multifamily industry—announce a strategic partnership that creates a NAHMA-AHMA Member Benefit Program. The program will provide purchasing discounts to members among other benefits, and in turn, Buyer Access will contribute support to the training and education missions of NAHMA and the AHMAs.
As a result of the partnership, NAHMA and AHMA members—regardless of company or property size—will have the opportunity to experience cost savings through outsourced services, data analytics, reporting visibility, purchasing standardization, compliance education and training. Members taking advantage of this partnership can realize discounts below published market pricing on key expense categories including maintenance, repair and operating supplies, flooring, paint, office supplies and more.

Additionally, members will be able to utilize cloud-based e-commerce and bid solicitation platforms that centralize purchasing administration and document management. They will have the ability to supplement maintenance personnel on demand via the Homee mobile app, and to purchase in-store with normal work flow and visibility of traditional online ordering processes with Home Depot Pro Multifamily approved credit.
“NAHMA is excited to be entering into this partnership with Buyer Access,” said Kris Cook, CAE, NAHMA executive director. “Buyers Access has been a supporter of our organization and members for many years, and this new relationship and program will allow NAHMA and the local AHMAs to strengthen as they continue to support their members.” Dan Haefner, president & CEO of Buyers Access, said, “The entire team is both thrilled and honored to be entering into this strategic relationship. We sincerely welcome the opportunity to provide value-added services and support to the NAHMA and AHMA members. We look forward to working closely with NAHMA, the AHMAs and their associated members.”
