Katz Properties Inc
614 W Brown Deer Rd Ste 300, Milwaukee, WI 53217
My overall experience has been positive. I think they're fair. Quick responses to any issues and quick to do any repairs. For such a big company, they are very personable and know their tenants. We haven't always seen eye to eye on certain things but they were quick to discuss them and make things right. The apartment building itself at 1806 E. Kenmore Pl is in good condition and very little issues, given it's age. I would certainly recommend Katz to others and I think they're moving forward in the right direction.
I just want to thank you for allowing me to live in & enjoy your properties @ The White Oaks, Prospect Towers & The Porticos for the past 10+ years. I also want to let you know that Troy is the best Manager you have - he always treated me professionally & with respect. You are so fortunate to have him on your staff.
Katz Properties has taken great strides to improve its customer-service and building quality. I've seen this with my own eyes at JVT. They have made significant improvements in the office and maintenance staff. I am extremely satisfied with my experiences with Katz Properties and would certainly recommend renting from them!
Lived at the Katz properties on 3575 Oakland. I Lived in one of the newly renovated units. The apartment itself is a little outdated but the unit on the inside is kept nice and clean. Stevie Drexler, the building manager was very nice. She kept the apartment clean and fresh and helped with any problems we had while living there. She kept track of packages and notified me if I had a packages in the lobby. She was very helpful on the move out and supplied cleaning supplies.
RUN...I repeat RUN!!! Do not Walk RUN, away from this property management company!!! My daughter and her roommate had to stay in their apartment for 5 day without heat!!! THIS IS WISCONSIN!!! I called the state and they went right out there and told them they would be fined if their apartment was not at least 68 degrees. He told them to fix it and all of the other issues he documented immediately!!! They told him they would be right out, and they came out a replaced a battery in the thermostat, and that was not the issue. They did not take care of the long list of things they had been asked to do by my daughter and roommate for 2 months. I took pictures of the apartment 2 weeks after they moved in. Message me and I would love to share them with you. The staff is the worst staff ever. I have been in the Property Management for almost 20 years and I know how residents are supposed to be treated. These people were the rudeness I have ever encountered in my 20 plus years in the business. Amanda the manager’s boss told me that no one had put in a work order, but my daughter emailed me each work order with dates and times that she sent directly to AMANDA!! IT took over 5 hours for my daughter to get a copy of the requested lease once the State asked for it. If I could give it negative stars I would!!!! AS OF RIGHT NOW THEY STILL HAVE NO HEAT!!!! These pictures were taken 2 weeks after my daughter moved in. She has been there since July. They were promised a deep clean and that the walls would be fixed. The State had to intervene and still her her heat does not work and her apartment looks like a flob house. The apartment was not ready when they were told they could move in. They only moved in because they had given notice at their previous place and had to be out that day.
Thank you so so so very much KATZ for providing us a absolutely wonderful apartment at Marshall Manor with continuous maintenance support (every time :)). Me and my family is very grateful to you guys for proving a secure and clean place to live in past 3.5 years. Thank you Ken for your very friendly nature and always there to help us with a big smile.
When the Porticos was first built in Fox Point, it was known as the "crown jewel" of the North Shore apartments. Some years later, a group from Texas bought the 3-building complex as an investment. The lack of care and management by this company had tarnished this "jewel" into a sad development in deed of serious repairs. The "Porticos" was then purchased by a local company, Katz Properties as an investment and was immediately attended to. Everything was repaired, refurbished and returned to the prized complex it had been â€“ plus more added amenities than were originally available. Now when I am asked where I live, my reply is "at the Porticos." There is always a positive response that makes me feel that I live in a special place. It's very nice to live "where everyone knows its name." Am I happy living at the Porticos? You bet I am!

I have been very displeased living in a Katz building and it seems that Katz could care less. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM. They have trouble taking responsibility for their own mistakes and seem to expect their tenants to take the blame for their own disorganization. I had a multitude of things broken around the apartment when I moved in and they stayed broken for my first year there until I finally said something (again!). Even then, things still remained broken. The only positive thing I can say is that our property manager (and ONLY our property manager) has always been very nice. Again, terrible company, terrible impersonal people who act like you are a burden if there are any issues. Don't waste your money.
