Colliers International brokers Edward Lawrence and Paul Horan assisted RJ Community Management in the selection of their newest office location at 4900 Perry Highway. With a move in date of August 2020, the 9,350 RSF suite allowed RJ Community Management to consolidate their Cranberry location and Arnheim & Neely’s Oakland location, a firm they acquired in August of 2019.

RJ Community Management is a firm which specializes in Homeowners and Condominium Association management including single family homes, townhomes, patio homes, condominiums, mixed use, and luxury high-rise buildings.

“We are thrilled with our new office space and location just off the Perrysville Highway exit of  I-279. Paul and Ed of Colliers International did a fantastic job helping us locate several options for our growing business and ultimately negotiate a sensible rental rate on a space that will serve our clients well and help us continue to expand our business,” said Robert Gillenberger, Jr. of RJ Community Management, “We started the process before COVID-19 and worked through the challenges of the virus in a time when most offices are shutting down for remote work. Our new space allows for our employees to work safely, stay socially distant, and provide for a healthy work-life balance.”

This new space at Perry Highway will allow RJ Community Management to better serve their clientele of more than 140 associations and 10,000 households through a more efficient single floor layout, an outdoor area, and prominent exterior signage. The size of the suite also allows room for the anticipated growth of the firm which currently employees 25 people.

“Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, Colliers was very pleased to meet and actually exceed RJ Management’s initial expectations related to the new office,” stated Horan. “This was done through the use of technology and the cooperative efforts of Joe Tosi of Oxford Development Company who represented the building owner, Rick Stern.”
