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?


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?

I was referred to Julip Properties, Inc. as my building was looking to replace our existing management company. After meeting with them, we’re ready to sign them up. They toured the property and we discussed our current situation with respect to issues w/ our current management company, as well as with any tenant issues (i.e. non-payment, legal issues, enforcement of bylaws, etc.). They gave insightful suggestions about how and where they could improve things immediately and in the long-term. They came across as very professional, highly organized and competent, and sufficiently staffed. They came highly recommended and, at least during these initial discussions, I can see why.

I highly recommend you do *not* use Fitz & Co, with whom I’m very familiar. They are extremely unresponsive (i.e. months w/o responding) and are unbelievably disorganized (i.e. can’t handle a simple repair in a timely manner, so don’t even think about letting them assist with any sort of renovation project). And, I think they’re comparable to Julip in terms of cost.

The RPM Group manages my building I have been very pleased with them. Responsive and very involved.

Red Bridge Property Management is great.

^^^ I also vouch for Red Bridge Property Management. Peter, the manager, is great.

I have to disagree with the assessment of Red Bridge Property. Peter is OK for running everyday property management but he isn’t very good at resolving problems. When extraordinary items need to be addressed, he is very slow in responding. In addition, he is unwilling to get multiple bids for work. Peter prefers to sub-contract to himself, which is kind of like the fox watching the henhouse ….
