Eastern Union Funding’s first-of-its-kind commercial real estate mobile app provides all industry professionals access to proprietary data and real-time transaction tools, including mortgage calculators, rates, and a directory, as well as a curated news feed.
The latest upgrade, a compliance tool, will enable New York City owners and property managers to immediately obtain building complaint and violation stats issued by the Department of Buildings (DOB), Environmental Control Board and Department of Housing Preservation and Development, giving owners and managers an opportunity to address concerns in the time before an inspector arrives and perhaps issues a violation.
“Building management professionals increasingly rely on technology to help them quickly identify and address building concerns, and Eastern Union’s platform will further improve their access to critical information needed to manage their properties well,” said Jack Jaffa, president of Jack Jaffa & Associates.
“Eastern Union’s app is the perfect complement to our services, which includes handling all aspects of violation removal for thousands of owners and management companies around New York City.”
Through the Eastern Union app, NYC property managers and owners receive the DOB, ECB, and HPD complaint and violation count. Once alerted, users can simply sign into Jack Jaffa & Associates’ proprietary Alerts Service to view all the violation data and obtain copies of documentation from all the agencies, New York City Fire Department and the Department of Sanitation.
With a click of a button, they can then hire Jack Jaffa & Associates to help remove the violation in court through their well-known team of violation removal professionals, who handle everything, including all paperwork and DOB hearing representation.
The Eastern Union app, which is available on the Apple App Store and via Google Play for Android, has garnered high customer ratings since its launch. In addition to the new compliance toolkit, its tools include professional mortgage calculators, live rates, news feeds and a comprehensive commercial real estate directory, among other features.
“Since Eastern Union Funding’ launch of the app in July, we’ve received great customer feedback regarding what technology tools and data would streamline their businesses and help them make savvy business decisions from anywhere,” said Ira Zlotowitz, president and co-founder of Eastern Union Funding. “Each day, we work toward adding new features that will make the Eastern Union app a one-stop solution for all industry professionals.”
