New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community
Orsid is large enough to manage more than 20,000 cooperative and condominium units, yet small enough to ensure that our team members take part in the daily hands on service of every building. At Orsid, we manage for the long term, consistently demonstrating that client satisfaction and client retention are our top priorities. Our client retention rate is proof positive of our successful approach.
More than 65 years of experience and unwavering commitment has made Orsid one of the most respected management companies in New York City. We stand ready to meet our clients’ needs for today, tomorrow, and the future.

Orsid was founded in 1955 by Albert Etingin, father of Orsid’s Former 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.When Maks Etingin joined the firm in 1966, he began the conversion of those buildings to Cooperative apartment buildings. Neil Davidowitz, a former Manhattan Assistant District Attorney and Maks Etingin’s son-in-law, joined the firm in 1986. 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 that 120 individuals, and manages a portfolio of almost 200 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. With over half a century in marketing and brokerage experience in New York City, we use our deep knowledge of the market to provide personalized attention to the needs of each client. In addition, we have licensed staff on-hand to assist in the marketing, sales and rentals of residential and commercial real estate.
