I own a condo in a 4-unit brownstone in Adams Morgan. There must be many, many folks in our situation, living on a single floor of a former single family home, slowly bleeding out a monthly fee to a property management fee for bare bones financial management and paying 3 monthly bills. In 8 years we have had changed firms three times due to very poor service.
They simply ignore or greatly delay any requests for scheduling maintenance work. And we pay the current firm $300 a month. Since it’s taken out of our HOA dues it’s a mildly hidden expense, especially so considering it’s split 4 ways.
Basically, we’re hoping to find someone with some sort of certification or insurance that has experience with extremely small HOA’s yet views their needs appropriately.”
