ROSE MANAGEMENT CO.s president, Rose Strauss, purchased her first building in Midtown Cleveland in 1968. It was an old paint factory and became Leader Electric Supply, a family business. Other properties were purchased every few years, and leased to small companies with small budgets.
In 1977 two apartment buildings within walking distance of the Cleveland Clinic were purchased. The 52 units were barely livable, that is why the purchase price was very low. Both buildings now have new kitchens, bathrooms, carpeting, and appliances. They are clean, and quiet buildings and are probably the last privately owned multi family buildings in Hough.
The company’s policy is based on communication. Every call received gets a reply whether from tenants, or prospective tenants. Properties are always well maintained and are recognized as Strauss properties for being up to code and developed to current tastes.
TASS CONSTRUCTION & DEVELOPMENT’s president is Archie Strauss, who brings the expertise of his architure degree to the restorations. This company works in tandem with Rose Management and practices the same business principles.
