One of the big questions we get ever year around this time is; how much do we tip our building staff? Where there is no rule or standard guideline, this may help give you an idea of what others are doing.
- Super, resident manager: $50 – $150 (depending on their service level)
- Doorman, concierge: $50 – $100
- Porter, handyman: $20 – $50
- Garage attendant: $20 – $100 (depending on their service level)
These numbers I have gathered from direct communication with our past clients and associate brokers.
Now what if your building has a holiday tipping pool. Some people will avoid the pool and give out individual tips, but this can be hard when you live in a building with 20+ staff members, or you just don’t have the time to write those individual notes.
