Having switched our condo association to Gittleman after 10 years with a rival management company, I speak from experience when endorsing the professionalism, quality and dedicdation with which Gittleman approaches property management.

It is interesting that the good reviews are all from board members or employees. The genuine reviews are from the "regular" homeowners. Money management is Gittleman's strong point, resident relations are not. Gittleman listens to those

Very disappointing how they feel the residents don't matter. They play by their own rules, don't listen to resident concerns, and worst of all they sway annual elections. The employees are way over worked and under appreciated. I don't

Quantity not quality is the game at Gittleman. They manage 280 buildings in the metro. WAY WAY too many given the number of employees they have. Everything is fee based here. They may have reasonable up-front costs but they pass the buck on to the residents. $125.00 for a copy of the budget and rules/regs for resale disclosure!!!! Extortion!! Astronomical late fees on hoa dues and additional ficticious "Attorney" fees on top of that! 48 hour response POLICY (they get back to you in 47 hours on all inquiries, email or phone. Nobody EVER answers their phone because they dump you into the voice mail system automatically. Worst customer service bar NONE.

Pros: Cheap up front management fee

Cons: Individual residents soaked with fees for everything!

I've lived in three Gittleman managed properties and all have been buildings older than 15 yrs old. Cosmetically, and I believe mechanically, the buildings 'seem' well managed, but I wonder if the large repairs on the buildings are really needed, and I wonder whether the biding process is truly honest. To me, it appears that often the same contractors receive the bids to do all the work; and thereby are the cono owners perhaps paying more for projects then might be necessary. Another concern I have is that usually the maintenance people live onsight, thus the asociation owns those units. I'm not aware of other condo associations across the US that do this, I wonder if cleaning maintenance might not be provided cheaper and equally as well by hiring a commercial cleaning firm that would clean all the Gittleman properties, and thus there would be economy of scale savings. Also, this would also allow the associations to sell the units the maintenance staff live in. On the other hand, mananging high-rise condos is complex,eg: I believe there are only 4-6 insurance companies that insure these types of building; also knowing which HVAC contractor is truly capable of replacing equipment on roof-tops is difficult. Lastly assocication dues are costly, often in the upper $200 - 400 per month.
