I am a current tenant of Baywood. They provided many upgrades to our property before we moved in and continue to be responsive when problems arise. They've sent out a repairman within 24hrs in all cases. It's been just over two years now and the staff has been friendly, helpful and professional at all times. I would highly recommend this realty to anyone. -Pete
I live in Mount Pleasant apartments and I have only been here since June and have had so many issues . Their has been a huge ongoing issue with a drug dealer dealing out the building and crackheads hanging around the building along with sneaking into the building behind people to get in. There was a drug bust in the buildings OWN parking lot with about ten police cars .My apartment was disgusting before moving in , I had to mop and thoroughly clean my place myself ! Their is also a huge gnat and bug problem as I've called maintenance about the issue two weeks ago and just lately roaches popping up . I moved my refrigerator trying to solve the mystery and stove and so many dead bugs underneath . Disgusting . I was offered a transfer but told to pay a 350 dollar fee and new deposit . Unfair, and an inconvenience . Not even morally right . I don't suggest moving under their management at all!
Very unprofessional and rude staff. Any time we needed a repair there was always an excuse as to why it wasn't fixed. If it was fixed it was never by a professional and was always a short term fix. Shower ceiling fell through and was left un-repaired for over 7 months. Neighbors were constantly smoking cigarettes and weed indoors (non smoking building). Played dumb and acted as if everything we called about was a dramatic over reaction. TRUST ME. What you save in rent money you'll lose in quality of living. Never rent from these people. Specifically the building at 7354 Tulane.
As a preface to my review, I am an architect with a masters degree in architecture, a second in construction management.My wife and I rented an apartment that was slightly bigger than 600 SF in the Central West End ($940/mo). Due to an extremely cheap renovation of the building performed by Red Brick, we ended up paying around $200 dollars for just a heating/cooling bill. To put that into perspective, my co-worker who lives in a three story house pays an average bill of $150 per month. The windows are original single-pane (uninsulated), wood frame windows that make you feel as if they were wide open 24/7. There is literally zero insulation in this entire building, including aftermarket items (doors, windows, etc.) which are common sense locations to insulate if you know anything about construction, let alone renovation work. The flooring is so warped that there are major gaps in the entrance doorway which electric bills aside, allows bugs and mice to walk in and out freely. This past spring, Red Brick turned off our water to our apartment five times without giving any notice beforehand, which is very illegal. The final time they turned the water off, we had no water for three entire days. When I asked them to refund our rent for the days we didn't have access to water, I was told "We do not make it a practice of reducing rent for maintenance issues". This also, was very illegal to deny a refund for the days we had no water. However if you talk to anyone who has had issues with Red Brick, they definitely do make it a practice of taking you to court if you try to fight back. (Sidenote, our water heater was a 25 gallon tank, meaning you will not be able to fill the up the bathtub even half-way.)My wife and I have since moved into an apartment that is twice the size, a better location, and half the electric bill, for the same monthly price. Not to mention we were instant friends with our new management as they too had been burned by Red Brick.
This company needs to be investigated for contractor fraud. Do not let Kirk Nevils build/remodel your home. You will regret it. He left severely damaged load bearing studs, covered up wall sockets with drywall, stole house key and charged items to a card without knowledge.
Liz helped us with our move from NJ to st louis and again when we moved to charlottle. would not have been able to do two cross country moves in 2 yrs w/o help. Her expertize and timely help made everything smooth, thank you so much and know your professionalism will lead to great success for you and your team.
DECA is a reputable company in the St. Louis area that works hard to meet the expectations of their tenants and owners. I would recommend their services to friends and family.
They are SLUMLORDS of MAPLEWOOD. The original carpeting in the hallways of one of the oldest buildings in town. They lie all the time! Nothing is new in those apartments unless it breaks down entirely and their handyman can't rig it up. They hand cut your blinds so can't buy replacements and they steal your deposit.
Renting from these people for 2 years was the worst decision I ever made. Mathew Wool is the most unprofessional "property Manager" I have ever done business with. I have rented both commercial and residential properties in St Louis for years these people are the most dishonest I have ever seen. I tried to actually get my moneyback when they violated the lease before I was even was able to move in but they would not give me my money back. These people will say any thing to get you to sign a lease. Once they have your money $2250 deposit in my case, you are on your own. Lies, that is all you get from them. Things in the house broke every few months. You had to beg them to fix anything. There are many professional management companies in St louis THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM! Although if you have a house in disrepair they would be your company to rent it. Bottom line this company only cares about the money they can make, not about the people that rent from them or the property they rent.
Extremely poor service. The agent and owner didn't return important emails and phone calls for several days. I was trying to acquire a lease property and they acted as if they were not interested in my business so I had to find someone that did value my business. I have never been more disappointed in 30 years of business with a real estate company.
