An extremely unprofessional, disorganized and unscrupulous "rental agency" (which in reality, is just one person). She attempted to have me move into an unfinished and unsafe house and provided nothing but excuses, falsehoods and misdirection when a laundry list of MAJOR building problems and concerns were brought up to her which left me scrambling to find another place within just a day of moving in. She supposedly has no company physical address and registered mail sent to this "P.O. Box" comes back unclaimed. Do not let her "enhanced" photos of what she supposedly has for rent fool you...since in reality, it will be a completely different story filled with broken promises. From firsthand experience, it's best to avoid this circus at all costs and stick with an actually established rental firm that at least has a clue on what they are doing.
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.
I concur with caspianb1's comments. In addition, haphazard construction is noticeable. The room containing the hot water heater & central air unit lacks proper containment of dangling wires & coaxial satellite cable. The coaxial connector panel in the living room lacks telephone/dsl outlet - requiring a 25 ft connection from the kitchen. There are gaps behind the lower cabinets & oven that provide easy access for mice, crickets, spiders, etc. Maximum DSL internet speed is only 3.5 Mbps. Windstream & Creekside Village point fingers at each other regarding who is responsible for such slow internet.
Do not rent from this company!!! Literally the worst landlords I have ever had! They never took the gas out of my name after I moved out last year and I ma still being billed. Black Hills cannot shut the meter off because they will not respond to them either. They will not return my calls. I also almost got carbon monoxide poisoning when I moved in because they didn't update the alarm. They never fixed anything including a board that was falling off the garage and was very dangerous. They are not a reputable business and I am seeking legal action against them.
My name is Carrie I lived at “Great Place Properties”, 4629 Stockwell ST Apt #5. I am a mother with two children. I lived at the 4629 Stockwell residence for a year, I enjoyed all of my neighbors they are all really good people. I however cannot say the same thing for Great Place Properties, first and foremost they raise the rent so high that it is unaffordable. I myself paid $470.00 in rent the lady in unit #4 in the building was grandfathered in at $450.00 for 15 years, as she says, she is an elderly lady and poor Lynn Fisher has raised the rent so high at 4629 Stockwell that it is more economical to move out of Great Place Properties Apartments. For a good long while it was very dangerous living in the building at 4629 Stockwell. Lynn Fisher would shut the hall lights off at night. Anyone could have been assaulted, because the halls were pitch black it was very dangerous. The 4629 Stockwell Apartment Building was built in 1966 no free cable, no swimming pool, no garages, no free internet, and the apartment units are old and have no distinctive features or the charm and lack the character of a new apartment building. Lynn Fisher is charging rent to his tenants that is so overly inflated that it is comparable to renting a house or renting from Brand NEW Apartment buildings in Lincoln NE that were built this year 2015. Great Place Properties is extremely expensive. Lynn Fisher has been unreasonable with overly inflated rent prices, Lynn is behaving with GREED and without a heart. So this Christmas I Carrie, will pray for you Lynn Fisher.
I am NOT recommending them to anyone I know!
Hip realty-Biggest joke of a company ever! I WOULD NEVER RECCOMMEND ANYONE TO LIVE AT THEIR PROPERTIES. I lived at mystic pines, and everything always seemed to be broke! Our fridge was leaking water, and when I told management it took them atleast a week to come and fix. As well as that, our apartment was not in anyway cleaned before we moved in! I complained so much to management that halfway through my lease I had to have a professional cleaning company come in! The walls were saturated with smoke, and when I tried to wash them yellow streaks just rolled off! The people who work there are incompetent and could really care less about the tenants. As well as that, this past June the company failed to enter rent checks till June 16, and then expected rent on July 1st! They failed to alert residents of this issue either! When I went to discuss the issue, they told me that the accountant was on vacation so they were late depositing checks. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!? They are so unorganized and nothing ever seems to be their problem. All in all, I would never reccommend this company!!
I've lived at the West C location since July, and I cannot wait to move out. HIP won't look into maintenance, even if it would benefit them. For example, our laundry room has been invested with ants. We do not have food there, and we cannot find anything that drew the ants there. Talking to one of the neighbors, we found out they have them, too. It's highly likely the building has ants, and when I called HIP about it, they wanted me to pay for it. As a landlord, they should take care of their property...Other cons to our building: the hallways aren't cleaned often/very well, our buzzer/intercom doesn't work at all (despite multiple fix-it calls...), both our screen door and our glass door on our balcony don't lock, the carpet was awfully stained when we moved in, the fridge has quit on us, our oven's handle has been broken from day 1, and overall, it's not a nice place to live.Things would be so much better if HIP actually cared about their tenets and you know, treated them like people. Instead of just a signature on a contract.
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.
These apartments are really nice! Great location. Paid utilities and cheap Direct TV. Only problem is the onsite property management. They are disrespectful, unprofessional and discriminatory. Maintenance of apartments is like pulling teeth. If management were changed this would be an amazing place to live!!
