Habitat Management Survey: Josh Koppel
Aug. 4, 2014

We e-mailed, posted notices and held informational meetings. With the gravity of the situation clear, tenants, board and management coalesced. Electrical and plumbing problems surfaced. Cracked seals on gas lines had to be replaced. As long as they were kept in the loop, the residents rallied, cooked on hot plates, cleared out storage areas and tolerated service interruptions and noise. It took communication, but the effort to make residents feel they were in the situation together was the key to avoiding chaos and fixing a serious problem. — Josh Koppel, President, H.S.C. Management
