I am trying to find stories of rejected buyers and tenants due to the opinions or actions of supers (e.g., a time when a super suggested to a co-op board or a landlord that so-and-so wasn't worth selling or leasing to). Got a story or a lead?
I would like to take it further and do a story on Management companies as well.
Yes, hard to tell if it is board or management company sometimes. So dodgy and annoying.
Why are building supers being associated with the mafia?
Is this an Italian slur?
this is a ridciulous inquiry--supers have zippo to do with board reviews, and likely have no idea who prospective buyers are, even
Having been on a coop board for years, I can say without a doubt that the super had no influence on anything shareholder related. The management company would only do the processing of the application, including credit and reference checks.
This question makes no sense.
Glad to see how open-minded and curious everyone is that because in their personal experience, this must never exist.
In my building the management company was just very influential in getting an all cash buyer rejected.
Let the guy do his research and if he finds something he writes the story. If there is nothing no story. end of story.
What are the odds that TomBoston's story when he rights it starts by calling it a "growing trend" that supers are influencing coop boards. It's not good reporting to start with your thesis and then scour the web to find anecdotes that support it. That's how BS trend pieces get started...
Tom - my super liked me so the management company gave me a 20% rent reduction. It is a growing trend on the upper west side. Can you please get the word out so other management companies (and mafia supers) can get on the bandwagon?

i am helping with this dope's "research" by explaining to him that supers have no impact on board decisions re buyers--in fact they have no clue who buyers even are. so far no one has helped with information that contradicts that which i have provided.
the management company is a different story, and may engage things like criminal background and credit checks of buyers on behalf of boards--as well as other services to assist with scrutiny of buyers
