Real Property Management is a company that works with landlords to extract wealth from communities. As Real Property Management states on their website: “When profit margins are thin at your rental properties, turn to our experts for help. With our property management services, you enjoy greater profits with less hassle. Owning and running rental homes and apartment complexes costs you a lot of time, energy, and money. We help you save on all three. Let us protect your investment, minimize your costs, and maximize your income.”
During the Covid pandemic, Real Property Management sued tenants (Eyette Green, Dashawnda Garrett, and Ahmed Lewis) who were fighting an eviction order. In December 2021, Housing Court Judge Irene Bagdoian ruled in favor of the landlords and capitalists for the second time, “strongly rebuffing the City’s request to stay her previous ruling striking down the Moratorium pending appeal.” In a previous ruling, Bagdoian had claimed that “despite the gravity of the Covid-19 pandemic, the new City of Boston eviction moratorium exceeded the emergency statutory powers of the Boston Public Health Commission, and unlawfully interfered with the judicial functions of the Housing Court in overseeing eviction cases.” This example shows how the court system and the landlords work in tandem to displace, banish, and extract wealth from community members.
