Progressive Building Management has actively been in engaged in property management since 1981. The company is headed by its President, Richard H. Dinar who holds the designation of Certified Property Manager (CPM) from the Institute of Real Estate Management. (Go to the section “What it means to have a CPM). Holds a New Jersey Real Estate Brokers License, and is a member of both the local and national chapters of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), Apartment House Association, Board of Realtors, and the Community Associations institute (CAI).
Progressive Building and Management Company was founded in 1981 with the sole intent of providing high quality third party management for property owners of mid-sized assets. It was apparent to us that the owners of such properties required and deserved more sophisticated and hands-on attention than was commonly available in the market place.
While we have not abandoned our original concept, we have over the past 25 years grown to encompass those same philosophies that made us successful into a full range of real estate management products.
We feel the most important attributes that differentiate our firm are communication, follow through and tenant relations. While our responsiveness to the needs of the owner are of paramount importance, we cannot forget that the same holds true for the tenants, or individual condo owners, and coop members. Our staff has been trained to insure that requests are promptly and courteously handled, and that client satisfaction and comfort which are critical in today’s highly competitive market, are effectively handled.
The effective management of an asset in today’s increasingly complex environment requires more than fundamental property management skills. In previous years, property management was rather simplistic, requiring the collection of rents, payment of expenses and accounting to the owner. Today that is no longer the case.
We believe that your property management company must have a degree of sophistication and expertise which now requires unique skills far beyond those that were needed in the past. It is necessary that a complete understanding of the ever changing federal, state and local laws is mandatory. Knowing how to deal with the regulations controlling security deposits, lead based paint, and mold are just some of the areas critical to managing a property. Additionally, management take-over involves much more than the acquisition of documents.
In fact, it goes beyond an examination and analysis of the records themselves to include an in-depth inspection and evaluation of the site, the improvements, and all of the property’s operating systems, and most importantly an understanding of the individuals and companies that occupy the facilities.
Lastly, and most important, is to create a meeting of the minds between the management company and the property owner. Each owner’s goals and needs for their property differ, and to understand these goals and needs, and tailor a management philosophy to meet them is paramount to a successful relationship. At Progressive Building Management accomplishing these tasks is our strategy for success.
