Abigail Michaels: Lifestyle Creation Specialists

Posted on Friday June 05, 2015 |

As a partner company of FirstService Residential, Abigail Michaels Concierge provides a multitude of benefits to residents in properties where boards or building owners have engaged their services.

“Our story began while working in a New York City luxury hotel where we had a vision that residents in luxury properties should be entitled to the same special access and wide range of services that are bestowed upon guests of five-star hotels,” explains co-founder and CEO Michael Fazio, who is also the author of Concierge Confidential, “including using the concierge to snag reservations at the best restaurants and premium seats at the hottest shows and sporting events.”
While Abigail Michaels offers these dining and entertainment services to its clients, the team understands that fulfilling the needs of residents requires a larger repertoire of services. That’s why their offerings have expanded to include move-in coordination, utility activation, home office set-up, art installation, housekeeping, dog walking, travel destination research, salon & spa appointments, fitness trainers and class bookings.
Add Abigail Michaels’ amenities programs and social events to the menu and you will see why the company attracted the attention of the New York Times (April 6, 2015). “Beautiful amenity spaces are great, but they need to be brought to life with a robust calendar of activities,” says Abbie Newman, co-founder and president.
For the gym, it might be a weekly schedule of group fitness classes and personal training sessions. For the resident lounge, it may be a “meet and greet” with a noted author, a “how to” class with an industry expert, or simply a monthly social reception for residents to mingle. For those seeking social and learning events outside the building, Abigail Michaels curates fun and interesting activities ranging from a private drawing class at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a chocolate making lesson at Li-Lac Chocolates, to a private showing of the latest gallery exhibit or a private reception at the Tesla showroom to test drive the latest model.
“On top of this, we still manage to reserve more than 15,000 tables each year at the best restaurants around the world,” adds Fazio.
Resident feedback speaks volumes. “Having Abigail Michaels in my building was an unexpected and wonderful surprise that has shaped my entire experience of living in New York City,” said a resident of 15 William Street Condominium.
