Orsid was founded in 1955 by Albert Etingin, father of Orsid’s Chairman, Maks Etingin. The firm developed a good reputation for managing its own holdings which at the time consisted of several carefully selected apartment buildings primarily on the Upper West Side. Maks Etingin joined the firm in 1966 and undertook to begin the conversion of those buildings to Cooperative apartment buildings. Orsid’s President, Neil Davidowitz, a former Manhattan Assistant District Attorney and Maks Etingin’s son-in-law, joined the firm in 1986. Since joining the firm Neil has been the driving force and visionary to what is now the modern day Orsid New York. Today, Orsid is now exclusively a third-party residential management company and is considered a leader in the industry. Orsid currently has a full-time staff of more than 80 individuals, and manages a portfolio of more than 170 Cooperatives, Condominiums and Rental Buildings. Orsid operates as a family owned company with principles deeply rooted in the original tenets upon which the company was founded.
Property management is a business of complex challenges, requiring multifaceted solutions that incorporate a multitude of disciplines and services. Orsid’s formula starts with being proactive, rather than reactive. This approach requires persistence, careful attention to detail and excellent communication. At Orsid, we manage for the long term, consistently demonstrating that client satisfaction and client retention are our top priorities.
