Archer is a company run by Bill Archer who manages co-op buildings in Westchester County, NY, by intending to control the behavior of the co-op shareholders.Archer has poor communication skills, both verbal and written. Neither Archer nor his staff reads and becomes familiar with the individual proprietary leases and by-laws of their assigned co-op buildings.Thus, Archer does not know the rules and by-laws of each building, but he challenges shareholders when they indicate a contrary opinion and can support it with the rules or by-laws.He doesn't understand who pays his salary-the shareholders, who can fire him. Archer's repair and management record is poor to average.He promised 3 bids for each repair project, but in 3 months, there were never 3 bids for any project.Archer explained the lack of bidding by calling each project an "emergency".Beware of that excuse.Everything is not an emergency. He was hired in Sept. 2011 and had not provided monthly financial reports by December 2011.He fought the distribution of the monthly financials to shareholders, forcing resort to the co-op lawyer who had to educate Archer about the lease and by-laws and then charged the co-op for the lawyer's services.All because Archer did not read or understand the shareholders' rights. Archer said he knew how to get rid of a poorly performing building superintendent, but despite several violations witnessed by shareholders and reported to Archer, he had not advised the board of filing any reports with the appropriate union.It is unknown that he ever filed any report with the union.He tries hard to get your account and promises the moon, but the interaction and results leave everything to be desired.Avoid him and his company.
