If you deal with or know of any Management companies for your building can you please share their name and how your experience has been?

I cannot say enough BAD things about ARK Management in North Bergen, who manages my building.

It is impossible to get anyone to do anything and the Management company dimes and nickels the residents. It takes 3-8 weeks to get a new or replacement laundry card. It's been over 6 weeks and they still have not fixed my key fob. It just stopped working one day and every time I call they take a message and say they will get on it but I still am locked out. Every year they implement more ridiculous policies to make life difficult for residents... sheesh.


When I was on a condo Board we researched ARK and came up with all sorts of negative stuff. In any event, the management company acts on behalf of the Board of Directors. Where is the Board? I suggest taking up your grievance with them.

We're a 6-unit building that recently went through the process of switching PMs. After much research, we selected Red Bridge and could not be happier.

I live in an 8 unit condo building and we're considering getting a management company as opposed to continuing to manage the place ourselves. Any suggestions on reliable companies that we should consider? Or any companies we should avoid?

When my 28-unit condo was considering a property management change, Denali was one of our front runners. We opted to go a different direction but were impressed with their online tools, the manner in which they staffed the account, and experience in our immediate area as well as Hudson County. I think you would do well by them.

Thanks for the recommendation of Red Bridge. I contacted them and, unfortunately, they are only accepting new properties in Hoboken for management.

Anyone have any experience with Denali Property Management? Our 10 unit building is considering switching to them and we were quite impressed with the pitch they made awhile back.

I've been using Delforno for the past ten years. If it's possible for a property management company to do a better job, I can't imagine it. They take care of everything the place needs, their fees and prices are very reasonable, and they're always available. They've also done a great job of finding excellent tenants. I recommend them without reservation.

I have no problem recommending Red Bridge. They are very responsive (which is a rare find for management companies) and are always professional. They manage our 6 unit building.

Are you, by any chance, employed by MEM Property Management?? Only three posts from you: one to slam a competitor and the other two are the same posts tooting your own horn. It makes you wonder...

My condo building has been using Cervelli Management for the past 18 months, and so far we're quite satisfied with them.

Two things we've learned the hard way. First, the experience you have with any management company will depend a lot on the individual property manager assigned to your building. The company overall can be great, but that means nothing if the guy who's looking after you is unresponsive.

Second, be careful. Check your management company's references carefully, and then ask around further. My building is still in a financial hole thanks to what I'll charitably call bad advice and poor accounting by a previous management company. (I won't name it because I don't want to slam them online.) We've since heard, from our accountant and lawyer, that other buildings had similar experiences with our ex-manager; what I take away from this is that professionals connected to the real estate world have a pretty good sense of who the bad actors are.

I'll tell you who NOT to use: Maynor Cannon at JC Property Management. We've emailed this lazy tool several times about things that needed fixing, he either ignored us or sent over a worker without a ladder who tried to use our outdoor garbage can as a step stool to fix a light. Seriously he was trying to stand on the effing garbage can. Good Luck to you.

I live a 6 unit building that uses RELB and I have no complaints whatsoever. Ten years running now.

As to cost, I don't know what the per unit price is, maybe $150 per unit? I think it is an a la carte type of proposition. For example, do you want the snow shoveled? How about gettig the trash out for collection? Pest control?

I'd say pick and choose what services you want to pay for. Then give them a call.

Not sure, my building has 20 units. I'm just commenting on the overall quality of job they have done for our building.
