Richard J. Smeriglio
When asked what sets Plaza Realty & Management apart from other property management firms, Rick cited the company’s ability to give their clients specialized attention and services that larger firms are not able to provide. In his 22-year tenure with Plaza Realty, Rick has redefined the meaning of personalized customer service and its importance to the long-term success of the business. Today as a senior property manager, Rick has responsibility for supervising several client properties and property managers. He relishes getting involved with all aspects of the property so that he can recommend and provide effective guidance and solutions to any issues that may arise; his in-depth knowledge and problem-solving expertise have helped build trust with each of his long-standing clients who rely on him to seamlessly execute large capital projects. A 1988 business administration graduate of the University of Connecticut with a specialty in real estate and urban and economic studies, Rick worked as an intern for Plaza Realty before joining the company in 1988 and received his real estate brokers license soon thereafter. He has supported several community organizations, including serving on the board of the Neighborhood Preservation Foundation Inc. for Willard Manor and the Norwalk Conservation Commission where he was an alternate member, and is active in Little League coaching.
