I would recommend renting from GPA properties. I lived in the 2 bedroom apartments for 2 years and did not have any serious issues with the management. As noted by other reviewers, the places are very nice. Personally, every time I called for maintenance management would come and fix the issue within 2-6 days depending on the severity. Management also brings in a snow removal crew to clear the parking lots as a courtesy, as well as provides pizza and soda at Christmas time as a thank you to the tenants. When we first moved in three of the units were broken into, management installed additional door jams for the sliding glass doors, and in the 2 years I lived there no more break ins occurred. Just so people know that I am not under contract by the company, or being paid to write this, there are a few things to keep in mind if renting from GPA. the dumpsters can become rather messy, largely in part because there are no security measures in place to keep people from driving in the parking lot and dumping their trash, management does not send anyone out to clean up the trash. Upon move in, document everything, this is good advise for anywhere you move in. GPA has a cleaning list for moving out and they are serious about it. If you have documentation about problems that were there when you moved in though, management will work with you and be fair about giving back the deposit. The only issue I had was when we first moved in we had a maintenance worker come in un-announced. I contacted management informing them about their break in lease and it never happened again. Bottom line is if you as a renter do your part, pay your rent, keep things clean, etc.. then GPA does theirs. I have lived in a lot of places moving around for various jobs/degrees, and I can honestly say GPA properties is a nice place to live and a fair company, but as others have mentioned, know what is in your lease, what you are entitled to, and what you are responsible for as a renter.
This is the second time I've used APM. Both times I've found a great apartment and worked along with a great and friendly staff. They're extremely helpful and go out of their way to answer questions.
Excellent service! Very pleased.
