Professional and friendly staff. Made my transition into my first apartment enjoyable.

I lived at Shaker Lakes apartments for 10 years. I enjoyed every moment while I was a tenant, through medical school and residency. It was perfect for me. It was a quiet apartment complex for all my studying. It was affordable, the front office was very responsive to all my needs and John was especially amazing - he is a down-to-earth, honest, patient and straight-shooter of a man. If you needed anything fixed in the apartment, it is done within a day. Plus it is 5-10 minutes of both University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic and their medical schools. I think as residents or medical students we are so busy and barely have time for errands outside our work lives, the front office is often patient and would work with you to accommodate your needs. I am grateful to John for that. I had an amazing experience as a tenant!
Terrible! Simply terrible. Unprofessional management, old and decrepit, smelly apartments. Stay away from Property Investment Company!
"How did it go?" - Simply put, it could not have happened without her!Our contract on the house fell through once and it took 9 months to purchase this home, and she latched on like a bulldog and fought tooth and nail to make this transaction happen. She is tougher than hardened steel and has a soft warm heart that genuinely cares about getting people into the home of their dreams, and into better living situations.Her primary source of advertising is word of mouth. From repeat buyers and referrals from her buyers to friends and family, and her 20+ years of experience is absolutely critical to any serious buyer. I've been researching properties all around Cleveland for 2 years prior to buying, reviewed hundreds and hundreds of listings, and visited dozens. I could have let my house go when the contract fell through the first time, but I made my decision on it, and Deb made it happen.As a buyer, I have experience with buying single family and multifamily homes, I've rented 9 units in the past and have been involved in real estate since 2010. Deb didn't need to hold my hand through the process, but at any point I needed to let her take control, I was 100% confident in her ability and professionalism.She helped me look at properties from Bedford to Euclid, Chardon and Chagrin, and various other greater Cleveland areas. She pointed out structural flaws, code violations, and anything else that would make a property we were looking at difficult or expensive to purchase/fix. She also surprised me with her ability to figure out the properties I would like the most. Because I don't buy a house because it has nice kitchens and bathrooms, I buy houses because I like the land, the city/county regulations, expandability, basement, driveway, bedrooms, and useful oddities.One house she picked out which I never found, she knew I would like it more than any other, and I did, the numbers just didn't work on it, and the conditions to sell it would likely have been just as difficult or more difficult than the house I already picked.All in all, I expect to be able to purchase another home by summer 2018, and Deb Wyckoff will be the first and only realtor I call to help with the next transaction, and refer to anyone I care about who needs a realtor who will care about them. Between California, Ohio, and Indiana, I've dealt with a lot of agents. Some good, some bad, and a lot who I wouldn't trust with a pen. Deb blows all of them out of the water.
Been around over 5 years at two different properties near Shaker Square. Having been here that long I can say that I have noticed things improving over the last year and half or so. I've had a number of issues over the years, some small, one or two more serious. Staff attitudes have been markedly improved.
I lived in Montlack Realty Fairhill tower for five years. The west facing two bedroom apartment has the most amazing view of the Cleveland downtown and the lake. It was a treat for us every day to view the amazing sunset from our bedroom. The apartment is well managed and the office staffs are really great. John and Butch were always there to listen to us if we had any issues in our unit. The apartments are really affordable considering the vicinity to the Cleveland Clinic and the Case Western. We have never faced a single problem with the maintenance as they were always there to fix things even in late evening hours. Montlack has several apartments in the Fairhill road, Kemper area but the Fairhill tower was the most convenient for us as it was walking distance from the Clinic and the Case and also the RTA stops just in front of the building. There are hiking trails across the building on the banks of Doan brook. Overall, the area is a safe place to live with a family.
This business has a bad habit of showing favoritism. They have to be familiar with you in order for them to rent you out a home. They are very unprofessional in what they do!!
I lived in Shaker lakes apartment for 4 years. Nice area and apartments to live in. My unit had full kitchen and an huge extra storage which was a big plus. It's in walkable distance from lakes which we enjoyed. Management was mostly responsive to any maintenance requests. Usually was take care within a day or two.
Stayed in Montlack Realties buildings for four years and haven't had any problems. Maintenance requests were quick and painless, rent was reasonable and the staff were understanding. I would continue to rent from them if a change in cities wasn't inevitable.
Laundry facilities are on the ground floor. There's a nice backyard with oak trees and picnic tables/benches too. Outdoor and garage parking available, no street parking at night.
