Searching for new management companyJan 03, 2021

Hi,
We've had our management company for 20 years and service is ok. We are searching for a company that will want to impress us with their responsiveness and up to date knowledge re CMA compliance and technology application to building management. We are pre-war building with 400 apartments in Brooklyn. We have good financials but outdated everything. We're used to having an onsite dedicated manager.
We are very interested in recommendations from Habitat readers. If you strongly to somewhat strongly recommend your management company, please be in touch.
Thank you!

Hi, I know that you're not looking for self-appointed recommendations, but my firm, EBMG, is exactly as how you'd describe what you are looking for.

Searching for new management company - peoples choice #1 Jan 05, 2021

I would shy away from EBMG (Mark Levine) I know a couple of friends who this company manage there Coops. They start off as hands on then they slack off with poor managing and caring about shareholders needs. They can't even handle my friends 2 buildings. Both have over 125 families.
With a building of 400 families you need a company with diversity and man power that can handle all your needs. That will not tax on fees for every little thing that is needed, raise maintenance fees, assessments every year.
I would do research on Managing agents, interviewing and meeting people that the company manage. Check fees, performance, employees they have. etc. This is not an easy task and needs a lot of investigating before you choose someone who can do the best for your building. It is extremely important because you are trusting them in handling all your important needs. I would turn to the Habitat to see all the managing companies, rating, employees and performance. I do suggest you start a committee of board members to do all this research. You'll thank me at the end. Best of Luck.
