As a working professional, I usually don’t have the time to write many reviews unless the situation really stands out to me. I have lived at 55 Glenwood Avenue, East Orange, New Jersey 07017, one of Shamco Management properties, for little over two years as a tenant. My apartment is very nice and it is very quiet on my floor, which I love! If I have any repair issues, I can call the 24 hr hotline number or the Property Manager and she will make sure my repairs get completed within a timely manner. In the recent past, there were things I did not like as a tenant and I communicated that to Management. In those instances, it is my impression they listened intently to my complaints and addressed those matters expeditiously. Over a short course of time, I have watched the Management improved our living situation within weeks ( i.e., mounting new cameras on each floor so tenants can feel safer and packages can be left at the door; installing new carpeting in the hallways of each floor, which makes a world of a difference in the feel and aesthetics of the overall building; set-up an onsite free business center equipped with computers for Tenant use; open a free state of the art gym where tenants can work out safely and conveniently; a new lighting system for the parking lot has also been installed allowing for a brighter area and a deterrent to predators, in conjunction to installing new lights for the back exit area near the garbage acting as an added preventative to criminals and the many other new exciting things they will be doing in the near future. By making these improvements, Management is showing me as a tenant that they care about their tenants safety and enjoyment. This makes me want to stay here indefinitely. I would definitely recommend this building to potential new tenants.
I was looking for a cleaning co. to clean my home before my mother-in-law came over but i was skeptical about which company to use. I found TPMC (Taylor Property Management Corp.) they reassured me that everything will be OK. i stepped out to do my errands and when i came back i felt like i was at a spa. The aroma of dry lavender made me able to relax for the upcoming event. When the cleaners came they asked me a couple of questions on the purpose of the clean. i said my mother-in-law is coming over and how an*l she is about cleanliness. They also asked what sent/aroma i liked and how i like my bed and clothes to be folded. I walked into my home and i felt like i was in heaven. i had fresh cut flowers on my dining room table, the aroma of lavender in the air (that lasted for weeks), my bedroom, bathroom, everything was perfect. My mother-in-law and i had a great time. They pasted my mother-in-law white glove test. Now i use TPMC on a regular bases. I recommend them to EVERYONE.
I have known Arlene of Awaye Realty for many years. she was not only very professional but also extremely involved in the sale of my home. she led me thru to entire selling process and was able to get a buyer within a week after taking on the listing. prior to that, my house was on the market for 6 months with a larger real estate company in the area and they were not able to get one single offer. she and her staff kept on top of all the details leading up to the closing and she took care of any issues that arose to make sure that the closing went smoothly. I have since recommended her to family and friends who were in the market to sell or buy a home and they all said their experience with her was exceptional.
