Administrative Operations

Bren Management takes an unusually pro-active approach toward building administrative operations. Because Bren's principals and managers spend enough time on-site to thoroughly understand your board, unit owners and tenants, Bren is especially skilled in facilitating internal communication and achieving agreement between these groups. Externally, one of the unique benefits of your affiliation with Bren Management is the fact that Bren's president is also a practicing attorney. Thus, inquiries relating to legal and regulatory issues, which usually require a separate communiqué with a lawyer, can be answered on-the-spot and at no expense. Specifically, Bren's administrative services include:

  • Attendance at monthly board meetings and annual shareholder meetings by Bren's management
  • Preparation and distribution of meeting minutes
  • Acting as liaison between the building owner or board and federal. state and city agencies
  • Expert advice on compliance with city, state and federal filing requirements and, whenever possible, actual filing of government reports and applications.

"Bren Management provides us with a level of service that I don't believe we would get from a larger management firm. Bren's staff Is a 'wonder.' They are responsive to our every need and they care about getting things done properly. I also have the highest regard for their president, Marty Kera, he's honest and he's saved us a great deal of money."
