R.E.M.’s management service has received our trust and faith, as that they have always held our best financial and ethical interests at heart. They have handled matters ranging from all various rent controls & New York City regulations and ensuring daily communications on all material business matters, to providing customizable management statements. Their careful keeping of property files and records has been useful for legal challenges and financial evaluation. I probably don’t say it enough but the employees R.E.M. has in the office have all been fantastic hires. Each of them has strengths for the operation and R.E.M. has given them authority and independence to perform at the highest level.
We are happy to express our utmost satisfaction with the property management services provided by R.E.M. Residential in addressing and resolving all of the various physical and tenancy issues in our New York City multi-family property portfolio, many of which have been quite complicated and challenging due to the nature of the properties. R.E.M has provided unparalleled services while maintaining and enhancing our investment’s value …… R.E.M and Eastern have developed an excellent working relationship of more than four years at this point. We have relied on their knowledge, integrity and commitment to exceptional real estate management practices.

My company depends upon dealing with professionals and experts of the highest integrity. R.E.M. Residential understands this and has over the years been a source of information and expertise for our firm. Because of our longstanding relationship with R.E.M. Residential, they understood our investment objective and subsequently assisted us in purchasing and repositioning a portfolio of Manhattan apartment buildings.
I am delighted that R.E.M. has been able to grow, develop, enjoy success and be recognized for the unparalleled customer service you deliver. Your team at R.E.M. has shown me that loyalty and trust are deeply rooted in your character. Clearly, this is a strong and healthy partnership. Rick, you have so much to be proud of. The work ethic you have demonstrated from the beginning is remarkable and the reward of having happy, satisfied clients is just one proof point.
It’s a great feeling to be able to spend more time at our vacation home in Jackson Hole, to rest easy knowing that our buildings are in your capable hands!
Thank you for that.
Unlike the many managing companies that push for unnecessary so called “improvements” to boost their own bottom line, REM has never pushed. They make suggestions, educate the board, explain the pros and cons, detail the costs and benefits, and document the potential future savings. They also have worked with numerous different contractors but there is never any pressure to select one or the other or even to select any of his contacts. We just completed our local law commitment, chose the lowest bidder, the work was excellent, timely and the job came in on budget. So look around carefully but give REM serious consideration.
It is a pleasure to having REM manage our multi-family properties. Their entire team is dedicated to providing professional management, and treats each property as if it is their own. We are a rather large company and have worked and continue to work with several management companies. None have been as responsive and hands on as the REM team. The future is bright for this growing company.
R.E.M. Residential has been managing our Manhattan mixed-use building for more than three years. During that time the team at R.E.M. has impressed us in all phases of the task.
We particularly appreciate their attention to detail, anticipating and handling potential tenant issues, knowledge of the considerable intricacies of owning and managing real estate in New York City, as well as meeting all projected financial targets while maintaining the property at the highest level.
Our relationship with R.E.M. has exceeded our expectations and I give them our highest recommendation.
EAX Group wholeheartedly recommends R.E.M. Residential for its property management services. R.E.M. took over management of one of our properties a year ago, and the improvement in the building has been dramatic.
First, R.E.M. is extremely hands on in its management of the property, and quick to resolve any issues. This includes any violations with the city, or issues with common spaces. Second, we saw an extremely proactive approach towards managing tenants and understanding the needs of the building. Third, we appreciate the extensive monthly reporting as well as communication with the ownership group about issues facing the building. Finally, we also found R.E.M. was proactive in creating a strategy to improve the rent roll as well as quality of the tenants.
About 6 months ago my family changed management companies to Rick Elezi and R.E.M. Residential for our Manhattan building that has been in our family for over 90 years. We had been with our prior management company for over 45 years and I feared the switch would be awkward. Rick understood my concerns and the switch was efficient and without problems.
Since R.E.M. Residential has taken over as the management, Rick and his staff have acted proactively to address issues that were of concern. The building has already been improved, violations have been removed and tenant relations are better.
I am writing this letter to express how impressed our building partnership is with the wonderful service R.E.M. has provided us over the past year with regard to the day-to-day management duties of our rental property in New York City.
R.E.M. has managed several significant renovation projects on our behalf with an extremely high level of efficiency and professionalism. The office staff is pleasant to speak with, our calls are typically returned promptly and we are always kept informed with regard to matters such as lease renewals and market conditions in relation to rental rate increases.
I would recommend R.E.M. to any property owner that wishes to retain the services of a top-notch, professional property management firm that truly follows through on everything that it is supposed to.
At R.E.M we are extremely proud that clients and tenants alike are happy with our service and grateful for the help we provide them. People are moved to tell others about their positive experience with our company and service, whether they frequent Google, Facebook or Yelp. Here is just a small sample of people for whom we have helped make a difference. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing praise from people whose lives we have positively impacted. That is why we do what we do.
