Been living on the 25th street property for about a month now:Pros:- building is near enough school and vine & 27th restos and pharmacy by bus or on foot - good parking- pretty decent unit space for the rent- place was clean upon first move-in (though not as thorough, but acceptable)- friendly enough staff at the management office Cons:- I have to agree with the previous reviewer about the walls and the floors. You can hear the upstairs neighbors if they talk or play music louder than normal, can hear them walking on creaky spots on the floor, can hear them taking a shower or flushing the toilet. Kids play in the hallway but not on my floor, so noise isn't as bad. My unit is near the building entrance, so if I sit in the living room, I can hear everybody running down the stairs or get in and out of the building all freaking day. So I guess management lied when they said the floors are made of concrete (otherwise, it wouldn't creak and noise wouldn't be that bad). I still do not get a full night's sleep due to all the noise.- to my knowledge, management screens their applicants so why are there tenants who play their heavy bass music from their car super late at night when everyone's trying to sleep? Some of the neighbors also put their trash next to the dumpster (vs. putting it inside) so the next morning their junk is all over the place coz the critters got to it. - sometimes the cooking smell from downstairs kitchen goes up to my unit but it isn't as bad as the noise.- laundry is pretty far from my unit, but this is a minor inconvenienceHaven't had maintenance done yet or witnessed flaws in snowcare and lawncare. I don't know if management can do something about how noisy the neighbors are. The only reason I live here is because of the proximity to school, otherwise I'd spend a few more dollars and rent a better built apartment out in the woods, with hopefully more decent neighbors. So if you're a student on a budget and sleep like a log, this place might be good enough for you.
Great Place Properties and Lynn Fisher managed a property for me for over a year and eventually handled the sale of the property. Lynn and his staff were able to provide accurate information and valuable advice since it was my first time as a landlord. His teams years of experience in the business was greatly appreciated. I felt like I got the maximum amount of value out of my investment and with very little effort/stress on my part. I also observed that Lynn and his team were also considerate of the tenants that were in my place watching out equally for their interests and communicating the tenants concerns to me in a fashion that we were always able to come agreements that made both parties happy. I felt like my asset/home was well protected and that Great Place Properties did a great job of keeping me informed of the business end of things. As a long distance landlord I was glad to have Great Place Properties represent me and manage my interests. I would highly recommend this company and if I am ever in need of their services I would hire them again.
