Reader Mail: Condo Management

Good property management companies in Hoboken hard to find?

One thing that is almost as constant in Hoboken as parking issues, flooding and nutty politics – is the ongoing quagmire involving property management companies who maintain condo buildings.

Seems that that there is always someone having trouble!

Hoboken411 reader Brian asks the age old question:

“I’m a Hoboken resident and a few condo owners in my building are having major issues with a local Realtor/Developer/Management company. Can anyone recommend a reputable, honest and competent company?”

Need help finding good Hoboken Property Management Co.

After posting the terrible story about how one resident is getting bludgeoned after the La Scala fire, another 411 reader Jason wanted to know what people’s experiences were with condo management companies.

Anyone have a company they’re very pleased with?

Hoboken Condo Management Companies: Any suggestions?

6/28/2007:

hoboken-brownstone-small-image.jpgA few days ago, a reader sent this email in requesting some tips from other Hoboken411 readers regarding who they use as their condo management company/association.

They’ve since found a solution, but if you’d like to add your 2 cents in, and to help people who might be looking for some advice in the future, please feel free!

“Hi Hoboken411,
I read your site practically everyday and have found it very useful and entertaining each time. I was wondering if you could reach out to your readers and obtain some info for me. I recently moved into a condo building and we are looking to find a replacement for our current management company who runs our association. The building (a total of 12 units) converted to condos three years ago and we are looking for someone who is experienced and on the ball as our current person has been slacking. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks!”

Guess I’m a “cheap amateur” too! Got news for you paco, nowadays in this miserable economy, cheap is good! Keep all the expenses down and the condo maintenance fee low. All the “professionals” know is how to charge big fees for minimal work that anyone with the right computer software can do themselves. Do you really think a pro is paying your bills and generating the statements? I bet its a secretary using Quickbooks software.

I’m the president of 30 units condo building in hoboken. Our association has gone through three property management Cos in the past 10 years. All of which are mention in previous posts. Recently a friend of mine recommended Hudson Property Management, so far they been great compared to our past experiences. I recommend them.
