Newton, MA Barkan Management Co. has continued its expansion in the New England region with new management contracts at Hammondswood at Chestnut Hill, in Newton, and the Villages on Mount Hope Bay in Tiverton, R.I.
Hammondswood at Chestnut Hill is a 59-unit condominium community located at 629 Hammond St. in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood. Known for its school system and close proximity to restaurants, health care facilities, shopping, and several country clubs, Hammondswood is five miles from downtown Boston. Barkan assumed management of this community of two and three-bedroom units in June. Account executive John Thiboutot, CMCA is responsible for the day-to-day operations with the support of assistant property manager Meghan Wilson.
The seven member board of directors at the Villages on Mount Hope Bay, a 187-unit community located at 120 Schooner Dr., tapped Barkan in May to resume full-service management. Barkan had managed the community from 2010-2017. Vice president Jerry Meaney (assisted by general manager Meghan Ostroff on site) will oversee the operations of this community of townhomes and mid-rise condominiums overlooking the scenic Sakonnet River. Amenities include a beautiful clubhouse with library, game room, and fitness center, as well as a pool and tennis court.
“We are thrilled to add these two communities to our condominium management portfolio,” said Meaney, adding that the company now counts 133 contracts totaling 16,400 units in three New England states. “Barkan has an impressive track record of success in meeting the diverse needs of condominium Board members and unit owners; we are very proud of our many long client relationships. As has been true for 38 years, a commitment to our clients is our singular focus.”
