Never rent from these people! They have excessive fees and charges and will file eviction notices immediate when you are past 5 days late. They also put money you pay towards fees and then say you didn't pay rent instead of putting the money towards rent. SANDY is the name of their collections person at the main office. She is rude and arguementative. Also, if you ever go to court with them there is about 10 other people there for "not paying rent" (really it's late fees or other hidden fees) and guess who Mason Properties attorney is? Coincidentally it's Mr. Mason! Good luck if you get to that point because he seems to know the judge well. They will kick students out onto the street after racking up their bill with fees and charges. Stay away from this property management company!

I have never had any issues dealing with the staff at Mason Properties. My apartment was spacious and the rent was very fair. I suggest checking things out for yourself.

I have never felt so ROBBED in My LIFE!! When first signing a lease term with Mason Properties In Rockford Il The Lanlords Son (who I Never Communicated with my entire lease term) Added an additional month to my requested 6 month lease term. I was moved next to some of the noisiest neighbors and I left several voicemails regarding complaints. I decided to stick it out for the remainder of my lease term after I realized voicemails were not getting me help. Finally Time to move remind you I have Paid All months rent on time in full. The Landlord son (Ryan) tells me to drop the keys off at his unattended office. I Do So I never here from Mason Properties for A Month. I decided to call the office in dekalb were I was told I Am Able to Wait 30 days from the issue date of my deposit. After Waiting a full two Months 60days I am given the opportunity to pick a percentage (what Mason properties claim is owed to me) (no pictures submitted to show reasonings of reduction) of my deposit from dekalb which is one hour away from my home town and were I Live. I Will NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE TO THESE THIEVES AND THEY WILL NEVER GET MY BUSINESS AGAIN!!! On top of this robbery I still have not met my initial landlord. I only dealt with her thieving, Lying Son.

The prices at Mason Properties are very reasonable. The apartment I live in is great and was very clean when I first moved in.

I needed a repair done in my apartment and they sent someone within the week to repair the issue. It is great having people that care about their tenants so much.

I lived at Mason Properties for just about 2 years and loved it! Since I was in school, it was a great location. The prices were very reasonable and it included our utilities, major bonus.



Worst renters in dekalb

This place is horrible. Our 4 bed 3 bath apartment was 1500$. The parking was horrible and you couldn't even park more than 2 cars in the driveway or else you would get towed. The carbon monoxide alarm was going off nonstop and I called them about 5 times. The lady told me to change it myself. I wasn't about to step in the house and try to figure out what was wrong. I ended up calling the fire department to be sure it was safe and the lady from mason properties came over and was being so unbelievably rude to me. Then when we moved out, they sent us a ten page letter with all of the things wrong with the place and charged us 200$ MORE than the 1500$ security deposit for "repairs" .. I would personally never ever rent from this company again or recommend them to anybody I like.




Really good location and good prices. They were very convenient for me while I was in school. They did a lot for tenants.




My recently started renting from Mason Properties. So far everything has been nice. They were very helpful when we were getting everything organized and ready.



Where do i begin? Terrible ser...

Where do i begin? Terrible service, mean staff, no desposit returned, crappy carpets, surprise bills, towing of your stickered car, no parking available, work orders take months, staff lies and lies to your face and takes advantage of you. O did i mention i rather live in the dorms even though i am 25 years of age than deal with Mason Properties ever again.

Stay FAR AWAY from Mason Prope...

Stay FAR AWAY from Mason Properties and their terrible management and customer service. I wish i never rented with them, do not even waste your time to find out the hard way.



No problems with Mason Propert...

No problems with Mason Properties for the past year that I've been at the James Court apartment. Everything is in great condition and if something does need to be looked at, the maintenance people or the front office people are nice. I really don't have any problems here, so I tell my friends about it.



I've been renting an apartment...

I've been renting an apartment from Mason Properties since early August. The atmosphere of the whole property is great, very inviting. The rates are really impressive too, my apartment is huge and I think the price I pay is more than fair. - W.S-
