“As some apartment owners are buoyed by the rising tide of the economy, the vast majority of owners continue to struggle with increasing revenues enough to keep pace with municipalities, utility companies and taxing authorities.

WRH has the team, processes and systems built up from its years as an investor and owner to leverage for the benefit of its clients,” said Springsteen.
