Extrapolating from a sample size of exactly one, 
I think it may have to do with the size on the 
condo. Our 12 unit condo is a wonderful group of 
people. Since the board is made of 5 owners, by 
default it's pretty representative of the 
ownership, and virtually everyone comes (or sends 
a proxy) to the annual meeting for elections.

Here in NYC, co-ops are more prevalent than 
condos, and those have a much worse rep for being 
obnoxious, particularly in terms of approving sales.

Main point: we love the small community and the 
group efforts of the residents of our building.
