About Us

Har-Lou Management Corp. was formed in 1987 by Louis Tekel and Harvey Tekel. Louis had been directing his family owned company since 1946. His son Harvey joined him in 1971. Together they grew and expanded their multistate commercial supply and service business. Their business was based upon customer service, quality control, facility management, employee productivity, and fiscal controls. As the opportunity arose to create a property management company, they applied their extensive experience into managing a senior citizen low income HUD property.

In 1987, Har-Lou was hired by the Rockland County Jewish Home for the Aged, a large regional non-profit charitable organization. Their vision in contracting Har-Lou was to provide full time professional property management with excellent service to the tenants, superior maintenance for the building, careful accounting on budget and fiscal controls while fulfilling the owners' organizational mission to grow the campus to its full potential of about 275 apartments. The initial property had 113 apartments. Har-Lou also manages a full service on-site kitchen and dining room, which now serves both properties and roughly 125 carefully prepared nutritional hot meals five nights per week.

On October 25, 2000, Har-Lou Management Corp. was awarded a national honor for managing one of the top 100 of 32,000 HUD properties in the United States by then Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Andrew Cuomo. Over the next few years two members of the third generation, Adam Tekel and Erica Lieberman, joined the management team and a second building was constructed with an additional 80 units. At this moment, funds have been approved by HUD for the construction of a third building with another 80 units and a multistory garage which will accommodate about 60 cars. Upon completion, it will mean that Har-Lou Management Corp. has successfully more than tripled the units serviced within a short period of time, completed a four building campus, and will be expanding their customer base with other property management challenges.
