BEWARE! their property manager of Wilshire Berendo Towers: Sam Park and his wife, are racist and harassed my black friends every time they visited me. From not allowing them to park in my designated parking spot to stalking them via the video cameras to approach them with hostility and yell at them to leave. If you have a diverse friend group do not ever lease from Beverly Hills Properties.
Whether you are a Korean or not,she is mean and rude. Compare to the poor service, the rent is not a good deal.
I recently (5/14/16) stayed the night here last minute and it was by far my worst experience for an overnight stay. The pictures make it look way better than it actually is. I should've read the reviews here first. Up on the floor is a disaster. The hallway to our room smelt like cat urine. Any person would've thought to turn around and look for a better place but because it wasn't refundable we chose to stay. When we got into the room it wasn't as pleasant or big as the pictures make it look. There was a big ink stain on our bed frame and the shower head was old and needed to be replaced, I hadn't noticed that it was spraying upward and had soaked the entire TINY bathroom floor. PLEASE do not be fooled into staying here. They need a lot of renovating done if they want their guests to leave with better experiences.
I made a huge mistake!!!!! Even though I read hoover_reviewer_001's review on the manager named Helen... I moved in. One of the worst mistakes I ever made. The manager Helen Bateman is a Korean old lady who is RUDE AND MEAN. Well, at least I'm Korean... If you are NOT Korean.... Don't move in!!! She is ONLY nice to those Korean tenants who give her a cash gift. If you don't give her any gift within 3 months, she will treat you like a crap. The apartment sucks too! I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER recommend this place to ANYONE because of the manager Helen. I'm writing this review to warn you. Don't make the same mistake I made. I'm so glad that I moved out.
Very convenient location
Great deal and beautiful apartment. My building neighbors are friendly yet quiet when I am working. My apartment overlooks the pool with a great view. The furniture is modern and the apartment is very clean. I've been here three months and am extending my stay. I recommend this business!
This place recently went through major renovation but what a money wasted. They made the entrance, lobby, and hallways look nice but the real problem lies hidden.- Walls are SUPER-THIN (the ceiling is about to break loose on you whenver the upstair neighbors walk around, you hear chatters, TV's, neighbors making love - just a like cheap motel)- Lots of cars passing thorugh on Hoover Street. Constantly and illegally double parked cars by the entrace yet no one's willing to do anything about it. Wannabe gangsters like to smoke and hang out by the apartment until late night.Onsite manager is delusional and a lying *****. You ask to fix something, it takes minimum 2 weeks. She calls at nights, drop in at nights without notice, just because it's convenient for her to work at that time. You complain about the noise but does nothing at all. Rip off of your security deposit for the damage that was done by the previous tenant, even though she agreed earlier that it was there before and won't take it from you.Don't trust anything she says. Read the lease thoroughly. Have everything in writing. Contact the management office directly. (310-278-8000 Beverly Hills Properties)Simply not worth the money. Simply not worth living.
Helen is the worst , horrible manager I ever met. She is only working for the management company, never try to help people whoare living in the building. Elevator is under construction for more than 2 months, indoor air quality is poor. Whole alley smells like a rotten fish.I told her about the bad smell, then she said "It's not my responsibility".I'm not asking responsibility, I'm asking for cleaning the smell, DA,,,,,I have heard similar complains about manager from building neighbors.How come a person like her can be a manager?????
Trying to get some information and the manager hung up on me. I will not use your services.
