CitySites Real Estate Group, the brokerage firm owned by Scott Hakim of the prominent New York City real estate family, has started a new property management division. Officially launched in late August, CitySites Property Management offers services like rent-collection, bookkeeping, marketing and budget assistance to building and apartment owners.

The Hakim family owns roughly 200 New York City buildings. CitySites — a residential brokerage founded 15 years ago by Scott Hakim — now has 40 agents and is the exclusive leasing agent for all of the Hakim family properties, including 147 East 61st Street and the Anthem at 222 East 34th Street.

Expanding the firm’s expertise to property management seemed like “a natural progression,” explained Jeana Maruggi, managing director of CitySites. “Companies who have exclusive buildings see the ins and outs of property management on a daily basis, so many agents become interested in expanding their services.”

Quran Deas, previously CitySites’ listings manager, has been named director of resident relations and marketing services for CitySites Property Management.

Other new hires include Anthony Goris as head of operations. According to Deas, the team is already managing units in five buildings throughout the boroughs, including 104 West 87th Street on the Upper West Side and 160 West 20th  Street in Greenwood Heights. But the new division won’t be handling any of the Hakim-owned buildings, at least not for the time being; the family has had the same property managers for decades, Maruggi said.

CitySites aims to double the size of its new division by next year, Deas said.
