The Hajjar Story

Our exceptional service began over 25 years ago with the management of two apartment buildings in Boston, MA. From day one, our founder, Charles Hajjar, worked diligently to provide top-notch service in a small basement office near Boston’s Fenway Park. He understood how important day-to-day management was to developing a thriving property and satisfied customers. This commitment has been the hallmark of the company’s success.

The office quickly grew, and is now headquartered in Milton, MA with a busy team of 15 professionals. We also have satellite offices in North Providence, RI and Middletown, CT with dozens of field employees covering six states. Like our clients, we treat our staff as valuable members of an important team, providing an environment for them to prosper and grow.
