OUR DIFFERENCE

At Barkan Management we have a mission – to ensure that we provide the best possible experience in property
management for our clients and residents. We’re not focused solely on their day-to-day needs, but on achieving their
goals and objectives. We build long-term relationships, provide creative solutions and apply leading-edge technology.

We’re led by a highly credentialed executive team. Our senior staff includes nine Certified Property Managers (CPM), a designation awarded by the Institute of Real Estate Management, three Professional Community Association Managers (PCAM) and fourteen Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA), both designations awarded by the Community Association Institute, a National Affordable Housing Professional, a designation awarded by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) and numerous other housing management and compliance certifications.

Why Barkan?

Let a few of our staff members provide the answer:

Steve Alloto, Facility Manager — Residences at The Intercontinental, Boston

Routine and preventive maintenance of the common areas and central building systems is critical to the preservation and enhancement of the property value and the comfort of our unit owners. Steve works with a large network of qualified vendors that understands our service standards and expectations, and values their business relationship with Barkan Management. “Our primary consideration in choosing vendors is the quality and reputation of the vendor and our second consideration is the cost of that service.”

Maria Pizzuto, Senior Controller — Client Services

We take great pride in the timeliness and accuracy of the accounting and financial reporting we provide our clients as these reports are critical to their decision making process. Maria’s primary software tool is Yardi, the ‘gold standard’ in property management accounting and reporting.
