"Our cooperative was in disarray when we hired the services of Imani Mgmt Inc. Our books were not in order and we had various city and state agencies requesting their reports. In addition, our roof and elevator were in desperate need of attention. Honestly, Imani got us back on track in a short period of time. I liked their approach to problem solving."

We are proud to say that we do not fit the mold of a traditional management company. For example, we do not attempt to take over any building that we manage. As such, all of our clients keep total control of their checkbooks.
We present the board of directors with the idea of creating an office in the basement for the purpose of managing documents and meeting with tenants. Furthermore, we seek to build a corporate environment by creating an appealing place to hold both board meetings as well as general shareholders meetings.
Imani understands the need not only to manage the building systems, but also to connect the individuals within those structures with the larger community. We make sure to emphasize the need and importance of belonging to the local community boards, joining the police commmunity advisory board, and inviting local politicians to meetings. We promote youth activities, voter registration, and block associations, among other things.
