I don't have problems with onsite caretaker, they always come and check out when something needs to be repaired. It's the Smith Agency office I have a problem with. The head of maintenance is apathetic to tenant issues, which as any rational person will tell you - adds more frustration to a problem. The office treats their tenants like they are doing us a favor, so expect that kind of arrogant attitude every time you deal with them. My unit is in dire need of repairs and for years (yes i said years) hasn't been dealt with. I have given up and am patiently waiting for my lease to run out. The air conditioning doesn't work very well, my unit is always HOT in summer. I find it comfortable in winter. Hot water seems to run out mid evening, I'm doing dishes often with lukewarm water. Tenants above me are very loud, I'm frequently woken up at 4 a.m. As an aside, my unit hasn't been painted in years, probably years before i moved in even. They were supposed to paint years ago (it's on my move in report) but they never bothered. You don't say anything - they don't bother. You complain you need repairs - they don't bother. The only good thing about this place is the mall across the street.

Where to start....

Caretakers are very rude and rarely call the office in regards to a tenants concerns or maintenance that is needed. They only clean the hallways, laundry rooms and stair wells once a week if that. Actually had to filer a written complaint about our kitchen light not working, got fed up after over a year of caretaker telling me that it was the bulbs.

Windows an exterior doors are as old as the building and let heat in all summer long and very cold drafts all winter long.

Vehicles in the parking area at the back of the building are forever being broken into regularly.

Onsite management is BRUTAL. <section removed to comply with terms>. Not sure why they are there? They will clean up outside and cut the grass, after they see the caretaker across the street at another Smith bldg do it! Dirty hallways..caretaker never answers their phone or door. If you are willing to live WITHOUT onside management,..good place , otherwise..BEWARE door.

The care and maintenance to this building has gone to the dogs. For the last 2 years Smith Agency has been working at making the outside of the building look good as well as the lobby, but try get them to do any repairs, maintenance or up keep to an apartment is none existant. The caretakers are useless. They clean the halls, laundry rooms and such once a week, other than the main lobby that is. You tell them about something you need fixed and they will not call the office to get it done, noooooooo, instead they will argue with you.

Rental Agency very slow to respond to complaints and repairs. Make sure all requests are in writing. Several loud tenants in hallways. On-site caretaker (term used loosely) is useless. They will argue with you about everything. They let all solicitors into building. Place is cleaned once a week if they are around.
