Daniel Barsky is the president of the recently established Barsky Property Management. 

After more than 30 years as a residential real estate developer in the Princeton area, R.B. Homes has expanded its services by launching a separate property management company. The new entity, Barsky Property Management, manages properties across New Jersey, with a focus on Princeton, Lawrenceville, Hopewell, Pennington, Plainsboro, and Princeton Junction, as well as select northern and southern New Jersey communities.

President Daniel Barsky and his team work with residential property owners, homeowner and condo associations, and commercial property owners to manage the day-to-day operations of their properties and, ultimately, to maximize their real estate investments.

“There is a real demand, and I believe a fast-growing demand, for more property management services in our area,” Daniel Barsky says. “It doesn’t take long for property owners and landlords to realize that while there is a lot of money to be made in rental properties, it takes a lot of time to manage them if you want to do it well and be successful.”

Barsky notes that there is always something that needs your time and attention — finding and screening tenants, marketing properties, regular maintenance and repairs, rent collection, and occasionally evictions. “The process starts even before you buy a property,” he explains. “You need to keep up with the market, maintain relationships with vendors and brokers, and stay up to date on regulations. It’s a lot.”

It may be a lot, but none of it is new to Daniel Barsky, whose father, Roman Barsky, is a well-established developer in central New Jersey and founder of R.B. Homes. Both Barsky Property Management and R.B. Homes are family owned and operated businesses with personal service as key touchpoints.

“We launched Barsky Property Management with a combined 75-plus years of experience in real estate development. We are able to leverage our collective experience, our industry knowledge and contacts, to increase operations and financial efficiencies in every project we manage,” says Barsky. “More than anything else, there is trust in the Barsky name, something we have built over the years. When you turn your most important investment over to someone else to manage, you need to be able to trust that they are taking care of it as well as you would yourself.”

When launching the new company, a strong emphasis was placed on the Barsky name and what it represents: industry knowledge, personal service, solid relationships with local vendors, quick response to resolving issues and environmental consciousness.

R.B Homes was the first developer in central New Jersey to bring accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, to Princeton. “We bring the same leading-edge thinking to everything we do at Barsky Property Management as well,” says Barsky. “We are on top of the trends but also committed to tried-and-true methods.”
