300 Meyran Ave.DO NOT RENT FROM THEM!
I can't wait for my lease to expireI've been ready to cut ties when I called to report a leek and they assumed I was a college kid who got drunk and punched a hole in the wall. How about 10 years in the service? I was ready to brawl.
DO NOT RENT FROM THEM1. HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. They are just greedy and don't care about anyone.
One of the cheapest......places I could find was a one-bedroom from these guys. It was in a small, converted office building in Polish Hill. Gas was included which was a perk. Otherwise, they were quick to penalize on a late payment (which only happened once or twice in two years). I was also charged the standard move-out fees for things like carpet cleaning and painting; though I did shampoo the carpet, I understand them bringing in a professional. My gripe is I patched holes and repainted the place myself before moving out, and I was still charged for repainting. I should have taken pictures when I first moved in and when I moved out--I left it in better, cleaner condition that I received it!
Unwilling to resolve issue for two months.On the date of Sept. 1, 2007 I moved out of my apartment as per the lease agreement. I was contacted about the security deposit two weeks later stating that the final water bill and sewage bill needed to be paid. I paid the final water bill. The sewage bill was not going to be released for 3 months. Although I was more than willing to pay it no one including the real-estate company where willing to do anything about it. I contacted the John C. R. Kelly on several occasions to settle this issue they continued to direct me to the sewage company. Now after 2 months I have yet to receive my deposit. I recently contacted John C. R. Kelly and was told that finally they would handle it. The lady I spoke then told me that she had just recently done the same thing for another tenant that I had been asking her to do for 2 months. Then I told her I would call her back Monday she told me, ?No, I will call you because you don?t know what time I will contact them and I don?t need you nagging me." On top of all of that I was charged to have a carpet professionally cleaned when I wasn't even consulted on how much the service would cost or if the best price was chosen. I will be filling a complaint with the local Attorney Generals Office this could have been solved two months ago.
Don't rent from John CR KellyVery underhanded and greedy. John CR Kelly is comprised of the worst people that I have ever had to deal with in any of my apartments. The 'accountant' called and yelled at us many times for mistakes that she made (forgot to record our rent and accused us of not paying). Our lease is up August 15th instead of being a full month, so I paid half a month's rent and they are now trying to charge for a full month even though they are the ones who said that I could not live there a whole month. Also, they breached our lease by throwing my roommate's stuff out before the lease was up and just said "let's forget about that and get past it". Total crooks.
300 Meyran Ave. HORRIBLE REALTYThis realty company is absolutely horrible.
Unprofessional Rental CompanyComing from a tenant who not only paid each month's rent on time, but also early, this rental company is unprofessional and concerned mostly with making a maximum profit from students. First, anyone renting in this building should know that the heat is entirely electric. Since the building has little to no insulation, our heat bills have been $200+ per month for two bedrooms, and we have the internal thermostat set to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Second, the rental company's response to maintenance problems has been nonexistent. I believe that either all of the tenants' water pipes are connected or that the valves on the faucets are very old, because we have very little control over the temperature of any of our water. After water from the shower scalded my hand while I was grabbing a bottle of shampoo, I called on 1/30/10 to see if the problem could be fixed. I was assured that someone would be over to look at it. No one came, or if anyone did come, I did not receive a response as to whether it could be fixed. I called again on 02/04/10 and spoke to Bob, who said that the maintenance man doesn't like to travel all the way to Oakland, but that he would have him look at it the next day. Again, no one came, or if anyone did come, I did not receive a response. I called again on 02/13/10 to alert them to a problem with a lack of hot water, which I had been checking on the hour every hour for four hours, and again, no one came, or if anyone did come, I did not receive a response. I have also tried including notes with the rent check to hopefully reach another person in the office more attuned to fixing these issues, but it has been to no avail. Third, we do not have blinds on our front window, where people can see in from the street. Fourth, our refrigerator does not have a handle and is missing a foot, so it rocks back and forth. Fifth, both the wood of our kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets has rotted so that the bottom of the cabinet is actually the floor. I would definitely not recommend this rental company to anyone.
Response to reviewsJohn C. R. Kelly Realty, Inc. has been managing property since 1966. We currently manage over 1,000 rental units. Many thousands of people have rented from us in this time and have no complaints of our service and the quality of our apartments. Our apartments and townhomes are some of the best in the City of Pittsburgh.
Do Not RentFirst off, in response to JCR Kelly's post, the reason there are no complains they know about it because they do not record, keep, or act on any complaints made to them by tenants. The negative reviews probably represent at least half of the students that rent from this realty company. I know many people on campus that rent from them and feel the same way as all of these comments.
Shadyside's BestI usually don't post reviews but while looking up the number for the Rental Office, I noticed that Bob was getting slammed with bad reviews that do not reflect my positive experience with Kelly Realty.
