Polishing Brass Fixtures Remodel Lodge

Just a question I thought I'd post here. I recently performed a clean for a remodel of a lodge. The owners had new brass fixtures installed in all bathrooms. The PM instructed me to polish all of the fixtures to a nice brassy shine so I did, not wanting to because they had the appearance of vintage brass and the superintendent said not to do it. Nonetheless, I followed the PM's instructions and I polished them with brasso (her suggestion) I came back a short while later and found some of the faucets had some greenish/blackish residue. After several attempts to polish these I decided to try barkeepers paste. Although this seem to work better a few days later I came back to look over things and found the same greenish residue. The PM said she ALWAYS had the same results even with the previous fixtures which were brass but the owners insisted so she did it. I'm just reaching out to see if anyone knows of a solution to this problem. This lodge is absolutely beautiful and I want her to have good results when she cleans them so any advice would be helpful Thank you
