Equity Residential tapped an alumna of the Related Companies and the Richman Group to oversee property management for the Chicago-based real estate investment trust’s New York City portfolio of rental buildings.

Tatiana Bond began earlier this month as vice president in the Midtown office at 230 East 41st Street. The Sam Zell-led company owns 25 buildings in Manhattan and three in Brooklyn. The REIT’s 35 total properties in the greater New York City area hold roughly 10,330 units. That number of units nearly doubled after Equity, along with AvalonBay Communities, acquired Archstone from Lehman Brothers for $9 billion last year.

Bond joined Related in 1998, rising from a member of the on-site property team to region manager over 13 years. She then handled property management for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions at the Connecticut-based Richman Group for three years.

“She has a long track record with upgrading buildings in New York,” Tom Lebling, senior vice president at Equity, told The Real Deal.

Prior to hiring Bond, Lebling was in charge of property management for the Northeast division from the New York office. In the wake of the Archstone deal, he now also oversees Equity’s California apartment complexes — from the Chicago headquarters.

While at Related, Bond was involved with the Sierra and the Westminster in Chelsea; the Ventura on the Upper East Side; and the Westport in Midtown, a spokesperson said. Bond could not be reached for comment.

In 2011, George Kruse, a former managing director of Toll Brothers Realty Trust, was hired as vice president of New York City-area development at Equity, as previously reported.
