anyone who gives this place a good review is lying to you. this is the worst place i have ever lived in my life. it would seem like the rather pricey rent would come with benefits but it doesn't. instead you get animal feces in the hallway, trash bags in the stairwells and poor management. when dealing with pressing issues, management will literally avoid calls and meetings. i tried to schedule a meeting with the manager, Gina Pendarvis, and she told me she was "too busy" to try and set a time for us to meet. I'm sorry? What? This complex takes advantage of college students and over charges them because they can. Last time i checked, it doesnt cost $250 to clean a fridge.
After renting from this company for several years, I decided to move out. Before I was allowed to contact Channel Realty, the neighbors contacted them. The next day after being contacted Lynn from Channel Realty called me and told me that the neighbors contacted her about my move and that I had until the 1st of November to be out because someone else wanted the unit. My response to her was it was not the neighbors responsibility to contact her about my move nor was it her responsibility to give me a time to be out because I never contacted Channel Realty. Because of her unprofessional rudeness, i moved out as she told me to. My last day was Oct 30, 2017. She did not grant a walk through of the property and has denied my deposit. Channel Realty has a VERY RUDE staff, especially Lynn...... Hopefully my deposit is used to clean the living conditions of Baker Blvd apartments
Some of the worst communication you can ask for from a property management company, not to mention rude!
McDaniel and his manager, Doug Garland are the epitome of slumlords. Doug showed me a house that was nice and clean and then when it was time to move, he gave me the most disgusting house I have ever lived in. There is mold, dirty tile, windows that don't open (against the law btw) and a yard with toilets, wood and old appliances scattered everywhere. These people do not take care of their property and become cruel when you bring it up. I am a student at LSU and was late on rent for one month, and they usually worked with me. Louisiana has a law that allows landlords to speed up eviction processes by putting a statement in their leases that says tenants will only have a 3 days notice of an eviction, a court date and then just 24 hrs to move out. Garland hardly gave me 72 hrs for the notice. My mother's name is on the lease, so she was the one to go to court, but she was in the hospital during the scheduled time. Even though my mom notified Garland that she was in the hospital he chose to go to court anyway, and we lost the case because of a "failure to show." Now that is on her record, which makes it hard to rent again. As soon as Garland came from court he put a notice on my door that said I had 24 hrs to vacate or a constable would force me out and put my belongings on the street. He put a for rent sign immediately up in the front yard. My court date was on a Thurs (5/25) and the following was Memorial Day weekend. That gave me no time to find a new apartment and move my belongings out. Mind you I am already having financial problems and have literally nowhere to stay. I am lucky I have some money or I would be homeless right now. After my mom emailed the judge about their disgusting behavior he gave me until this Thurs (6/1) to move out.Whatever you do, DO NOT RENT FROM THIS SLUMLORD. MCDANIEL AND GARLAND PREY on poor people and are not used to people knowing their rights. He does not know how to take care of his property.
The apartment wasn't the one on the picture/ brochure in the EBRHA office. I was told there was a groundskeeper. The grounds on the quad I stay in are nasty & trashy. I have mold which means everyone in the quad has mold from leaks in the plumbing where water has settled. The tenants are nasty and trashy and Rabel properties doesn't enforce the rules, yet she would rather me leave than to fix things. Her standing with HUD is on shaky grounds. She doesn't meet the deadlines for repairing her property.
She is very knowledgeable on a number of subjects, especially when it comes to real estate and financing. She is on top of her game. She is an educator.RLCompton
This Real Estate Agent is really a joke. Contacted them for many time about a problem on a property this company manages, no response at all. Do not do any business with this company.
Since they have taken over Hidden Point Apartments,the swimming pool has been unsuitable for swimming. The office staff seams to not care about anything. You complain about a resident of color and she doesn't do anything. Would give less stars if I could have.
really the worst company in Baton Rouge, it's a total scam. Never return calls, emails, or fix anything, the property is a dump under their management. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
UPDATE: 2 years later and they still do NOTHING about maintenance and do not respond to contact. Love the complex, despise the useless incompetent manager Chandra. Will be filing a consumer complaint with the Attorney General's office.Completely useless management. They do nothing about noise complaints. They don't respond to emails. They allow maintenance into your apartment without notifying you. They are completely clueless about the condition of the property. Sink holes were reported to management after a child fell in one and no one responded. Do not rent here!
