Clark Simson Miller (CSM) now manages
Mallard Lakes Association Finances

Clark Simson Miller (CSM) is now our new management company and has completed the transition from HOAM. A 4-page Welcome Letter was emailed and snail mailed to all homeowners. If you still have problems registering on the CSM Vine portal, below are some suggestions.

You can email phrase@csmhoa.com to request the 3-word phrase you’ll need to register on the portal. Then go to www.csmhoa.com/vine to access the CSM Vine portal and follow the instructions to register. Once you set up your account on the portal, you can sign up for auto debit using the form available by going to the “Documents” tab and selecting “ACH Form”. You can also call support at 865-315-7505.

Monthly financials are available under the “Documents” tab on the CSM Vine portal.

Two notes: 1) there is a nominal fee to pay by credit card; 2) auto debit won’t be effective until the month after you sign up.
