The property I live on used to be owned by another company until it was bought in the summer of 2016 by Koble. Knowing the reputation, I was worried but at first it wasn't so bad. Until winter came. The plow jobs are horrendous, and who they hire do not watch out for other vehicles trying to get around them. They never salt, and they don't clear the area by the mailbox. Nor do they alert us when a plow is coming, so we can move our cars. Instead, the plow will come around midnight or around 6 am, which will leave spots that should be plowed but wasn't since there were cars parked. The snow across the garage entrances don't get taken care of, and freeze over. Ice does not get taken care of. VERY hazardous. The parking lot itself is also a mess. Multiple cars for one apartment will take all the spots across the way by the entrances, instead of using the side parking. Tenants or guests of tenants from one building should not be parked in front of the next. Frustrating situation all around, and nothing is done to control the parking situation.Choice of tenants is concerning as well. At first, there seemed to be a filter to keep good tenants in the buildings, and it's slowly turned worse. The hallways will smell heavily of stale cigarette smoke. Kind of like a musty basement at a grandparent's house. Copious amounts of loud noises past the quiet time that had been mentioned in my lease with the former company. Slamming doors. Stomping feet. No respect for neighbors at all, and nothing is ever done.The laundry room is a joke. One washer and one dryer for eight 1-2 bedroom apartments. The washer is SMALL and the dryer took 1-2 cycles just to make the clothes dry enough so they didn't get musty. Left a note on the envelope of rent check, and we got a new one. They never attached the exhaust to an outlet for the heat to escape the room. Now it's taking a long time for clothes to dry, and nothing has been done after they were notified.A lot of frustrating things adding up very quickly.
STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!The apartments my wife and I are currently in used to be owned and operated by a different company. They were well maintained, cleaned, they watered the lawn automatically every day during the summer, mowed regularly and always cleaned up well, they plowed and salted promptly during the winter. Literally, not a single complaint. However, last August our apartment complex was sold to Koble. The difference was immediately noticeable. First thing we noticed, was they stopped watering, so the grass burned out within a couple weeks. They only mowed once between August and November, leaving huge piles of grass clippings everywhere. Eventually the piles dried up, and started blowing around. Over the winter, they rarely plowed, and when they did they would leave huge piles of wet sloppy snow in front of the garages, which would eventually freeze and turn into solid blocks of ice that we would have to remove ourselves or we couldn't get out of the garage. They refused to salt anywhere, which was a huge problem since last year we had TONS of FREEZING RAIN that winter turning our unplowed parking lot into an ice rink. My wife fell, which upset me deeply, so I contacted them communicating my frustrations and the email I received basically read, "we don't salt parking lots, deal with it".Then this spring, they "trimmed" the bushes outside, basically hacking them down to nothing, and leaving all the clippings behind. They remain there to this day. They stopped cleaning the communal entrance and laundry room. It got so gross one of our neighbors took it upon herself to clean it. In summary, these people are total crooks. If you can, stay away at all costs. I've rented from people that charge significantly less for rent, and maintain the building infinitely better. We are moving out as soon as possible, as are 3 other tenants in our wing, and I'm sure there will be more to come. STAY AWAY!!!
Jerry Koble is a crook, nothing ever gets fixed and will rent to anyone just to get deposit and first months rent then evict for any reason. This is the worst place I've ever lived with the worst management ever. Places are disgusting.
On 2740 Maple Dr. there are still wires that are exposed on the outside of the building and I have pics of this. They are worried about water but not about the kids who play here. What does that tell you. If you have kids don't rent here. I wonder why they wont show the pics ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS THE MONEY. THEY STOLE MY HOSE LOOK WHERE IT HOOKS UP.
Good luck getting anything fixed, and if you come to visit try not to kill yourself slipping on the ice. They never salt.
If I could give them a negative star rating, I would. Landlord doesn't care about anything that needs fixing and takes his sweet time responding back. We waiting months for new window cranks that never even worked. Mold in the bathrooms. A flea infestation so bad exterminators were called to come in and spray. We had to leave the apartment for this and weren't given even a 24 hr notice. When I called and asked what I was supposed to do with my cat on such short notice, he said it wasn't his problem. He's very rude. Clearly doesn't do background checks on tenants because if he had, the junkies and heroin addicts wouldn't be living next door adding to the flea problem because they won't clean. Spent hundreds of dollars on medicine for my cat but nothing got rid of the fleas. An absolute joke. Charges an insane amount for rent but does NOTHING to keep tenants happy. Renting through these people is the biggest mistake of my life. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!
If you're thinking of renting with Koble Investments... Don't. These guys are crooks, Slumlords, and jerks to boot. They will show you a decent, clean apartment and have you put a deposit down and then put you in a dirty, disgusting apartment without screens and mold growing in every corner. They will then collect money from you at any chance they can. Slap you with a $100 fine for cracking your window because your apartment is 75° with heat turned off. Take money from your security deposit too "fix" things that never worked in the first place. Ignore your complaints of faulty faucets, lack of screens, malfunctioning air conditioning, etc. Go anywhere else.
Renters beware!!! Classic slum lord situation. Do not rent from this crooked operation. Apartments in Schofield WI have black mold, roaches, trash on interior and exterior of the buildings, moisture inside, leaking toilets, hypodermic needles. Filthy rentals, they claim to have over 800 rentals in Wisconsin, they cannot manage maintain what they own and operate. Management is pathetic, classic case of duck and avade when trying to get repairs done and help with the trash they manage. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND LOOK ELSEWHERE IT'S NOT WORTH IT! !
Worst decision I ever made. The landlord is sketchy and sneaky. Before moving in, he promised that everything would be fixed and cleaned. However, when I moved in, it was filthy and disgusting with a horrible odor. Things were still broken and the carpet was so dirty that my feet would turn black from walking on it. There was mold under the sinks but the landlord swore it wasn't and wouldn't get it cleaned. He also gave me the apartment checklist and wanted me to complete it right away with him still there. Usually landlords give 7 days to fill out the form. Like I said before, very sketchy. Also, he said that the neighbors are quiet but I've already had to complain about noise disturbance. I can't wait to move out once my lease is over and will NEVER recommend them to anyone.
Currently renting Plover property with Koble Investments, and it's horrible. The lack of care and work on these properties shows. When calls to the landlords happen (if you can get a hold of them which is usually never), the objects requested to get fixed takes months before fixed. We lacked fire extinguishers for over a month, which is always safe (sarcasm). The "secure" buildings aren't secure and random people enter building to harass and steal. When the stealing happened, the landlords said that there was nothing that can be done. Buildings overall plain dirty and loud. The halls used to be white, are now covered with dirty hand prints and dried blood. Since renting with them, we have witnessed drug busts using swat teams and stake outs by cops using our parking lots. They rent to anyone and seem to not care about the background check. Just plain sketchy. Once a nice place, is now the new Plover ghetto. Will be moving out soon. If there was a choice for less than one star, they would get it.
