Shawmut Property Management Expands Condo Maintenance Division

NORTH ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Shawmut Property Management, LLC (, a full-service property management company, specializing in condo management, and servicing Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, today announced that it has expanded its condo maintenance division with an increase in employees.

Shawmut Property Management, one of the fastest growing property and condo management companies in Massachusetts, has added 18 new employees to its maintenance division. The increase in hiring is partially due to seasonal demand, but also due to an overall expansion in business, particularly within the area of maintenance. Unlike most other property and condominium management companies, Shawmut has maintenance people (licensed plumbers, electricians, carpenters, contractors) on staff. "Having an in-house maintenance crew is much more cost effective than having to sub out the work to contractors that have a lot of other condos and companies to deal with," said Andrew Raynor, President and CEO of Shawmut. "Having them on staff also allows us to be more pro-active and work with our condo associations to help them reduce costs through regular maintenance and other cost savings programs."

Reducing costs and going green

Unique to Shawmut is their commitment to implementing cost saving, environmentally friendly green technology and practices. For example, in areas that get infrequent use, but where people may be prone to leaving lights on, they have installed motion sensing light switches. In certain areas, where people may be carrying bags, for example, this has the added benefit of turning the lights on for them, so they don't have to fumble in the dark for the light switch. It also avoids having to keep the lights on 24/7, which reduces the carbon footprint and electricity costs to the condo association. "Having our maintenance employees on-site at condos on a regular basis is a great way that we can help reduce costs and go green for our condo associations," noted Raynor.
