Since Clever took over property management in my building I have seen a huge improvement in response time. Any time I email or text John I receive a response within the same day or at the very least within 12 hours. The transition to Clever was simple and well laid out in writing via print and email. It was really clear what would be changing, and we always have ample notice whenever anyone needs to come by the apartment which is particularly useful since we have a dog. I appreciate that any time I have questions about the building or even rental agreements when we were signing our lease, John answered every question thoroughly!

It has been my privilege to work with John Perri over the past 15 years. During this time, John has taken on many different roles, from property manager, construction manager and many more roles that fall under each category. I am proud to say that I have acted as his mentor over the years and have watched John embrace each and every new challenge and aspect of business with grace and proficiency. He does the required research to obtain the knowledge to provide the optimum outcome for all parties involved. He is tactful, communicates well and always acts with the best interest of his clients and vendors, making sure that everyone feels heard and that any of their concerns are addressed. His personality and follow up is a key to being an excellent business person and anyone fortunate enough to work with him, will soon come to understand this on their own. If a single word was to be used to describe John, it is trusted. Please feel free to contact me personally should you need any additional information. It will be my pleasure speak with you.

Through a thorough review of the basement issues I was having, John was able to identify the problem and then bring in the right professionals to mitigate the issues. His knowledge and professionalism in both property management and construction management are obvious and we will be using Clever Property Management for all future projects large and small.

John Perri and Clever Property management are just the best property managers around. Every time I have used him he arranges for quick repairs with professional workers. I have never had to wait longer than the next day for an emergency repair, most are done the same day. He has great relationships with the professionals he uses. I guess that's why they show up promptly and get the job done quickly. I highly recommend John.

One may think you can self manage a property from afar however if you want to scale you really do have to find the right property manager. I resisted for a long time and then a friend introduced me to John Perri at Clever Property Management. I have not looked back. Had 3 units and am fast approaching 13 units all in the space of a couple of months. This would have been impossible without having John and team by my side. Greene County is notorious for not being able to get contractors to actually take your call and then turn up to do the work. John and team has built up those relationships over a 15+ year period – hard to put a price on that. His team adapts to how you work, for me it is being super responsive. It is very hard work and not always appreciated because Clever Property Management makes it seem so easy. When you include them as part of your team it becomes easy. Have the conversation with them - it's free, I would be most surprised if you did not immediately engage their services. If you are not convinced after that initial conversation, I am happy to speak directly to answer any questions.

I honestly can't imagine anyone else better suited for this job. John is personable, smart, responsive, responsible, proactive, and hardworking. Super professional as well.
