Waste of time. Made me pay deposit before they ran my application. Just wanted my application fee. This place is unprofessional
I would give zero stars if that was an option. Similar to others who have left reviews, Lobos employs a slumlord-style of management. My apartment has flooded four different times in the span of 9 months, and each time, they said they fixed the problem, but last time, I came home to an apartment filled with sewage water and waste. Lobos claims to offer 24 hour maintenance, which is false marketing because they do not - I've had to wait 12+ hours for someone to come, all the while my belongings are under water and being ruined by Lobos' faulty plumbing. Also, this building has a bad insect problem.
I couldnt belivee how helpful this temp agency/agent was the most kindest, helpful, easygoing, professional setting but was so comfortable I felt like I was a wanted Employee but most importantly like a friend, in the highest standards my agent was Ms Valerie
My husband and I lived in this apartment complex from Summer 2016 to Fall 2017. At first, we were very pleased.Then little things began to bother us. There are washing machines and dryers on each floor, but using them was fairly expensive. The clothes often failed to dry properly. The washers were so inefficient that our white sheets turned yellow. The outdoor patio spaces look wonderful, but when we tried to use the gas grill in the middle of summer, we had to try several different ones before we found one that worked. Our neighbors regularly yelled at each other in the hallway late at night, and management apparently never took stronger action then sending a series of employees to talk to them. All these things were minor, but they became more problematic when management told us that our rent would be raised by around 7.2% for the next year’s contract. After signing the new contract, we began to consider moving, and clarified with management the fee to break the contract (1 month’s rent). We continued our search, found a house, and began the process to break our contract. Throughout this time, my husband was in occasional contact with an employee. We then discovered that management had doubled the fee two days before we officially broke the contract. Although it was legal, they never informed us in any apparent way. We met with the complex manager, who was condescending and acted like they had done us a favor by having such relatively cheap fees. Apparently it never occurred to her that we’re not charity recipients; we patronized their business because of the cheap fees, which had just doubled.Thankfully, we were in a financial position to purchase the house, despite the fee increase; someone else might not have been so fortunate. Although I realize that management did nothing illegal, I believe that they were unprofessional and unwise. I cannot recommend Park View as a place to live; convenient location, nice views, but simply not worth the money or hassle.
My husband and I have rented from Lobos for the last 6 years. Our building is an older one in Squirrel Hill that needs regular maintenance, but we've been pleasantly surprised by our dealings with Lobos management. They're prompt in tracking the request by email (one time it got lost, but that's over 6 years), and the office staff is always polite on the phone. The repair guys they send out are cordial and professional. This week we needed the tub re-caulked, as the old caulk was falling out, and even though it's Thanksgiving weekend John came and did a thorough job of it. In the past they've sent Bruce to replace a ceiling tile that got rain-damaged. When the washing machine in the basement wore out a few years ago, they had a new one installed in a couple of days, so I never had to use the laundromat.The rent's reasonable and the neighborhood's great. I know there are some bad reviews on the internet, but with as many units as they rent out that's not surprising. Our own experience has been good--or we wouldn't keep renewing the lease.
These guys are lying sacks of turds. The contract we signed originally had water included in the rent, but a few months in they changed the terms. Then the water bill steadily increased month by month until it was about $90 because there was a leak in another part of the building. They refused to reimburse any of the tenants for the extra cost due to their poor maintinence, and the rent never went down. Also as a matter of course they will take as much from your security deposit as possible, saying things need cleaned when they don't. They insist on charging tenents for carpet cleaning even though there had definitely not been any done when we moved in and I never saw any carpet cleaners the whole time I lived there. They just charge you with whatever they think they can get away with. F these A holes, please don't rent with them. They are rude when you talk to them on the phone once you are a tenent. They are the worst kind of exploitive scum, knowing they can take money from you because they have the power to hurt your credit score, they're smug about it and unwilling to be reasonable because of it.
I rented at Weber Apartments in Dormont for one year. I thought all the reviews calling Lobos "slumlords" was blown out of proportion. It was not. And I regret the decision I made to rent with this company.From an overall standpoint, the employees are rude and the maintenance is terrible. I hope some of the examples below highlight their business practices:Whenever I called Lobos for anything - not just maintenance - their employees were downright rude. I'd been belittled, hung up on, and made fun of while on the phone with them. Any phone call you make will usually be met with someone irrationally hostile.Before I moved in, I was told that they would install grounded outlets and smoke detectors. That didn't happen. They didn't even bother to clean the apartment. It took several weeks of phone calls and a reminder that grounded outlets were a fire hazard the tenant would not be responsible for before they sent someone in. When my ceiling caved in from the broken AC unit above me, I spent two weeks breathing in the exposed, leaking, rotting boards above me before they bothered to fix it. It made me sick for awhile, since I have horrible mold allergies.From an apartment-specific standpoint, I wouldn't recommend this building to even my worst enemies and unfortunately, I didn't learn about these problems until after moving in. Lobos' website advertises a washer/dryer in the building. There is none, so you have to walk to the laundromat. The mailboxes don't have working locks, so a lot of your mail ends up stolen. I had to start getting packages sent to my work after they were stolen 3 separate times from my doorstep. The building is poorly insulated so if you use their heaters (no thermostat - just AC wall units that double as forced-air heaters that smell like burning?) you pay an arm and a leg to keep it above-freezing (to keep my apartment at 65 degrees, it cost $270/month). As it's an old building, there's also zero soundproofing. Thankfully the tenant above me also woke up at 6am, because if my alarm didn't go off, I could wake up to the sound of hers. I could hear the 30yr old man who lives with his mother below me puking every Sunday morning after a rough night out. On the bright side, it made up for not having cable -- constant entertainment.The cherry on top was when we started getting rats in our trash cans. Luckily they're skittish, so if you make a lot of noises on your way to take out the trash, they would typically run away before you got too close.Lobos charges rent at either competitive pricing or just-below competitive pricing. And it's not even close to worth it. I'd rather pay an extra $20/month to be somewhere that I didn't have the consistant anxieties that Lobos caused. It's a wonder they're still in business... but I suppose slumlords can survive for awhile like that.
Warning Military personnel -- do not rent from this company! BEWARE! They are making my enlisted son and daughter in law pay an extra month in rent because of a difference in 4 days between his verbal orders and his written orders. Terrible way to treat those protecting their right to run this company!Lobos Management --- Federal law is set out in the Servicemembers Civil ReliefAct, enacted in 2003 to amend the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ CivilRelief Act of 1940. It provides a broad range of benefits andprotections to service personnel including specific rights relatingto renting and leasing obligations.
Recently graduated and was going to move to Pittsburgh PA, went on craigslist and found a place which was through Lobos Management for a place 2 months from today, I needed my Dad to be a co-signer and AJ was good with communication but we never signed the lease after my Dad looked online and saw the poor reviews, I told AJ we would not be renting the place but he will not refund the security deposit even though he initially told my dad that he paid the deposit the wrong way, my Dad paid with an eCheck and AJ wrote back and said they only accept certified funds for deposit/app fees. He said "You may NOT use debit, eCheck, cash or personal check." My Dad never got refunded the money even though AJ said they could not accept the method used, but once we decided not to rent, he is now keeping the eCheck, he said that in the APPLICATION, DEPOSITS ARE WITHHELD IF APPLICANT REFUSES TO ENTER LEASE AGREEMENT. LOBOS MANAGEMENT IS CROOKED AND THIEFS, BE WARNED.
This business has the worst customer service skills I have ever experienced, and I work in the automotive industry and have worked in the restaurant industry. From the Top, to the regional, all the way down to the complex managers they hire to run their buildings, I have experienced nothing but neglect, disrespect, and blatant disregard since I have started with trying to get an issue resolved. My apartment was damaged due to the facility's lack of attention to detail ( water damage, dust and dirt from brick pointing, dirt and grime tracked in from the kitchen makeover) then i was charged after I moved out for carpet replacement. After I refused to pay, it was turned into collections and has impacted mine and my roommates credit history severely. I have been able to remove this invalid debt from my credit history but my roommates have not been quite as fortunate and there has been no effort on Sierra Managements part to assist with the issues on the credit bureaus, even with paying this in full. I have been passed from person to person, I have been treated like a low class citizen, I have been laughed at, and i have not been called back after 6 messages and a verbal promise to get back to me from one of their executive positions. My time renting at Nob Hill Apartments, and my experiences with Sierra Management have been disgraceful. They don't even deserve the one star I was required to give for a review.
