CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Real Estate's brightest stars gathered at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago, IL to acknowledge the industry's elite. Prior to the award ceremony, the festivities kicked off with an elegant red carpet walk-through followed by dinner for the winners. It was IREM Casino Night, and it was only appropriate that Braeside Condominium Management Ltd. hit the jackpot bringing home the most prestigious award of the night.
The competition was fierce as IREM's Chicago Chapter No. 23 is a five-star chapter with nearly 700 members. President of Braeside Condominium Management Ltd. Ken Metz was on hand to receive the honors. He welcomes the recognition that comes with receiving such an accolade but he is taking necessary precautions. Despite the healthy growth of Braeside Condominium Management Ltd., Metz acknowledges the pitfalls of becoming too large too soon. The firm's main priority is sticking to their core principles while increasing the number of properties they manage.
“Our focus is to be a management company where associations, boards and residents feel they have a trusted and experienced business advisor to work with them both day to day and on the really difficult decisions a board faces,” says Metz. “We look to foster long-term relationships through personalized service, hardworking and experienced employees, and recommendations based on years of experience.”
Braeside delivers stellar service by limiting the number of properties its managers have in their portfolio. Metz views the increasing amount of emerging upstart property management companies as lowballing on pricing as well as diluting the time of their managers. “We subscribe to the philosophy “you get what you pay for.” However, he does admire their zeal and considers them a necessary motivator in continuing Braeside's excellence. “Our background in development, syndication, and profitably owning and managing rental properties deepens our understanding of how a property should be economically operated within budgetary constraints,” says Founder and Vice President David E. Multack.
A thriving management firm for over two decades – Metz depends on his staff of licensed property managers to display qualities he believes are essential to the position. Property managers are required to complete psychological exams to determine their strengths, communication skills, intelligence level, and problem-solving abilities. This type of attention to detail results in top-notch quality service along with an IREM Management Company of the Year Award, which is well worth it for the team at Braeside Condominium Management Ltd.
