Boston Realty Works Property Management has no relationship with the Boston Realty Works Rental and Sales. There is separate ownership of each entity. BRW Property Management cannot attest to the actions of agents in the Rental and Sales office. Upon speaking with R&S we were made aware that CK no longer works with that company. Regarding building maintenance: BRW does act with due diligence and make recommendations to the building owner with respect to what items must and should be addressed and/or repaired. When present BRW reports code violations and strongly insists that we be allowed to address the same. It must be emphasized that BRW DOES NOT have the authority to make any repairs or correct any violations without direct approval and instruction from the building owner. It is unfortunate, but there are some owners who do not approve nor authorize such repairs. Renters are reminded to perform their due diligence and thoroughly inspect a unit prior to signing a lease agreement. Renter be aware. If there are any issues that are not acceptable, we suggest that these be incorporated into the lease agreement as conditions for rent. Further, when signing agreement renters should always ask for a receipt from their agent. Lastly BRW was not involved with sale of the building to the new owner. We had nothing to do with this transaction. Any and all funds in BRW's possession related to this building were turned over to the building's previous owner, at his request, prior to closing. The tenants should contact the previous owner to recoup any deposits etc. funds, if applicable.

BRW offers very competitive pricing for the services provided in house. Most work is outsourced to third party companies who charge their normal rates. There is absolutely no mark up of services. BRW is more than willing to take the necessary steps to rectify any error on our end.

Proofs of payment are easily provided by banks to track any missing records. It is a good idea for tenants to keep their own records should occasions like this unfortunately arise.

Tenants are sent monthly invoices outlining payments made and/or missed. Should there be any outstanding rents, it is tenant responsibility to provide proof of payment so that the office may reconcile their account.

Robert Weintraub is no longer involved in any way with the BRW rental/sales office. This office is under new management. This was clearly an isolated incident, and written by someone with a personal issue against a former employee.

The description of the property this person mentioned does not match any of the buildings professionally management by Boston Realty Works. Further they must be confused as the Rental Sales office is an entirely separate company from Property Management. However, persons choosing to rent in Boston please be reminded that in all circumstances the landlords make the final decision regarding who they rent too and what work goes into a building. The gripes this individual has are both misdirected and counterintuitive. We wish them well moving forward.

The claims in this person's statements are absurd. The fact that we are one of Boston's original and long time standing property management companies is a testament to expertise and professionalism in this industry. Further if this person were in fact knowledgeable of the industry then they would know that the rental office is a separate company, and that we do not hire agents to show any apartments, which we manage. We would have advised this person to turn that agent over to the RHA or the manager of their office and have their license revoked. Should the author of this originating rant wish to speak with me to learn more about any of the above, please contact me to discuss in more detail. Thank you.

Please be reminded that the Rental and Sales office is entirely separate from Management Company. Further, we advise all tenants to perform a thorough inspection of the property prior to signing a lease. This also includes submitting an apartment conditions statement after you have moved in. Landlords have the final say of what work is performed in a unit, not the management company. That being said, we have a 24-hour 7 days a week emergency answering service. This is a live voice that responds to any problem upon receipt of your call. This person's claims that a flood or serious issues with the apartment were not responded too are simply false. In a life threatening or emergency situation, such as a flood, we have a respond and correct policy first - then answer to the landlord later action plan. And again, it is up to the landlord to decide if and when to raise their rent, and how much. And it is up to the landlord to decide when to put their unit on the rental market and which rental offices they provide keys too. Real estate agents by law are required to give all existing tenants proper notice before they show an apartment. Any realtor who fails to do this should be turned over the RHA and have their license revoked.
