I have been renting from the Lapham Companies apartment complex on Lagunitas Avn for the past year and have yet to have a negative experience. Never needed to request a repair so I can't speak to there responsiveness, but that's a problem I don't mind having. The landlord Rose and her husband live in the same building and I have never had reason to complain. I moved into an apartment with new carpet , new cabinets, new counter tops, and modern windows. I pay my rent on time, and have never been bothered by the property managers. Once ever other month or so will receive a note from the landlord letting me know that the water Will be hit off for a few hours or some other maintenance will be occurring during work hours, which is always fine for me. The building is safe and things are quite at night. Many of the people in this building have been here for 5-10 years. Overall clean, safe, living environment.
We had a good experience renting a Lapham managed apartment, and found them to be honest and conscientious in the conduct of business. Their agent showed us a couple of places in Oakland we mixed, then showed us a beach apartment in Alameda we loved. We lived there seven years and moved recently. In spite of the fact that time and energy ran out on me after a long-distance move (Texas y'all) and I left a significant amount of the cleaning to be done, they took a reasonable amount from my security deposit and returned most of it. I would't hesitate to rent from them again.
My partner and I have been living in an apartment managed by Bay's Elite Management Group for about three years now, and we couldn't be happier. Pedrem has been both attentive and prompt when we have had need to contact him. We have recently had to move out of state rather quickly, and Pedrem has been very accommodating and helpful. Bay's Elite Management treats tenets like people, not just names on a rent check. If you are looking for a place to live, I would highly suggest looking at Bay's Elite Management property first.-Jack H
I’m very happy with the cottage I am renting. My cottage has a large, updated, modern kitchen, hardwood floors, a claw foot tub, pretty rose bushes planted in the front, a private yard and was nicely painted upon move in. I wish they had put grass in the yard instead of leaving it as a dirt lot, but that’s a minor complaint as I was told we can landscape I however we want. There is a common laundry room for all the cottages too which is very nice.
They were really friendly and seemed as if they really have their stuff together. We just moved to the area so we had to travel to come look at the property and they were very accommodating. Once we were very late due to traffic and the agent stood by until we got there to show us a property. We just moved in and everything’s going smoothly. Final walk through before move in looked spotless. I’m ready to start out time here in Oakland.
I found them to be very Professional and organized, The common area was kept nice and I had very few of the problems I'm used to with apartment life. I have lived in a Lapham apartment for about 1 1/2 years now. again its staff are fair and friendly. I have lived in other complexes where the managment is virtually absent, but not with Lapham, they are there when you need them.
I have been with the Lapham Company for two and have relied on them for a variety of property management needs and maintenance issues. I find them to be an excellent resource with repairs and a timely agency in their responses. Their range of services and intuitive decisions my life stress free living in their property. Great company and I’ve had no issues.
Lapham Company used to manage the building I live in. Since the new manager took over, we have had lots of problems. Recently, I called Lapham to ask advice on how to deal with the new management company. They were happy to inform me of my rights as a tenant and what I should expect from the new managers. I have to say, I miss having Lapham around.
Western Property Manager Yolanda Navarro.Ms. Navarro, has always shown great business ethics, as well as providing excellent service to myself as a guess. She is pleasant and always greet me as a guess with a kind smile, she resolves the concerns I've had in the past; and is a excellent employee/ team member Thanks Ms. Yolanda Navarro!.
I've lived in a Lapham apartment for about a year now, and I must say that overall I am very impressed. They makes repairs/ improvements on the building in a very timely fashion, and very thoroughly and professionally. I find them to be very professional, and attentive to our needs. I have had very good experience renting from them.
