How to find a good Management Company for a 20-unit condo building in Manhattan?

Asked by Vasya, 10021 Tue Jan 6, 2009

I am one of the owners in 20-unit condominium building on Upper East Side.
We are considering replacing our current management company since they are doing very poor job in servicing our building.
Is it hard to find and attract a good management company for such a small building?
Can anyone recommend a source/
Thank you and a Happy New Year.

In Property Management size does matter, some firms are not set up to handle smkaller buildings, and this is not so much based in the number of units. A 10 unit building with $8 Million dollar apartments in it might want the resources of a larger company. Asuming your building is a samller building overall, you would want to stick with a medium to smaller managing structured to handle you efficiently and economically. My company (Halstead) would probably not be the right choice. I would suggest you try Kyrous Realty Group 262 West 38th. St. Ste 305 ...Harriett Kyrous, a delight to work with, there really knows how to service buildings of yoru size well and without attempting to enrich themselves in ways that conflict with your needs. You can reach that company at 212.302.1500. I promise I have no financial connections with the firm. There are a few others I couold reccomend as well, but Kyrous has no attitude and shines well.

Hi Vasya! If you are still looking and/or considering management for your building I would like for you to consider my firm. We are licensed managers with a portfolio of property from here to North Carolina. We are extremely hands-on and strive to go above and beyond to forgo management's involvement. If we can help, please feel free to contact me, Lindsey C. Holmes. Thanks!

We're a company that specializes in small to medium sized Cooperatives and Condominiums in the area. 20-units is roughly $9k per year for full management services. You can see our main website at and our NYC office website at to learn more. If you haven't switched yet, please feel free to e-mail me at

Hope that helps!

I am looking for great management myself and happened on your question to see if I could get some good leads. I do disagree with Richard. I have dealt with Kyrous Realty in the past and the manager, Harriet Kyrous does have attitude, is quite unreasonable and does not listen to anyone who is not on the board. The office is rude as well, they keep you on hold for a ridiculously long time, and seem to have a general disregard for people. While that may be the MO of the "ruthless real estate business," honest and decent people should not feel it, especially when paying NY prices.
