    does anyone know of any way other than calling the property, just for an example.... there is a condo association in my town that has just the name out front, no # or person to contact. so basically i need to find a way to get in touch with the property manager without harrasing the residents.... if anyone knows of a way like on the internet to see who owns or manages the place thatd be great.

    You could see if any are for sale and call the Realtor and ask. If it's a big place maybe they advertise in real estate mags they would have the number.Or lastly drive through and just ask.

    Cold Calls

    There Has To Be A Management Office Or Phone Number. Every Condo Association I Have Delt With Has A Management Office And Or Agent For The Owner.go On Line And Enter The Association Name With The Town You Are In And You Should Be Able To Find A Phone Number Or Call Your Local City Hall And Go To The Tax Assessor, It Is Public Record The Have To Tell You The Owner Info.

    I'm sure if there was an office that said "Management" that he wouldn't have asked the question... heh heh... I don't think it would be listed under any kind of public records. The internet was a good idea. Pretty much it's up to word of mouth or drivng through the place/asking around.... I was asking myself the same question a few months ago...

    Go to the Secretary of State"s website for your state. There, you can usually look up the owner/agent for that property. It will usually list the property manager or at least give you the mailing address for the HOA.

    I believe the caps on first letter is done by the computer when the user types THE WHOLE SENTENCE WITH CAPS. THAT'S WHAT I WAS TOLD ANYWAYS AND I'M TESTING IT OUT RIGHT NOW TO SEE.

    Doesn't seem to be working. Yeah, it must be hard...:cool:

    thanks

    thanks for the intel so far guys....there are a few small condo associations around here that do not have offices on site... im gonna try that secretary of state website. i tried going to the town hall and looking at the records but all that shows up is who actually owns each individual unit. i guess the best way is to just drive through and harrass one of the residents, thats basically what i was trying to avoid. dont really wanna bug the people that really have nothing to do with who gets hired, rather talk to managment anyways.

    If they're small, or only a low number of units, they are usually resident managed and operated by a few residents of the condos that are voted to a board of trustees.

    Go to your register of deeds or online if your county is high tec. Type in the name of the condos and it will tell you who the resident agent is and there address.
    You just need to get a couple of condos and then people will see you out there or the property manager will have 5 other condo he managers and before you know it you will be mowing/plowing 10 of them. Good luck 300 unit condo site = 300 old people that know it all and have nothing better to do than what yoo.
    Hope this helps

    ???

    as in phil, from all around? i dunno how that would go even though i know him pretty good since i worked for him. he is usually pretty tight lipped when it comes to contracts and how to get them but i guess its worth a shot.

    Sometimes you can find a home owners association, or a county HOA web site which has registered local HOA's . They usually post the HOA name, secretary, treasurer, and point of contact. Work prety decent around here.

    The other option like someone stated. Just ask one of the local that live their. They should have a contact or something. You might be able to check with a realestate agent, sometimes that sort of information is on file if their are or have recently been any units for sale.

    I would just knock on someone's door and ask who to get in touch with to place a bid.

    Seems like the logical thing to do. I used to do that till I found it's easier to just hunt the property managers down, and then you get the work.

    Otherwise, knock on the doors. :D
