Community Feel, Nice ApartmentsI lived at an R&E Apartment building in West Hollywood and the apartment had beautiful hardwood floors, cool older crown moldings and VERY SWEET neighbors. Also, the people in the main office (I spoke mainly with Rosie and Eli and they are the only names I remember, but everyone was nice) were very helpful, for example, the there was no airconditioning and with the fires LA has been having this summer, the heat was brutal. HOWEVER, I called the main office for some other reason and happened to mention how hot it had been, and she offered to have an AC installed with no cost to us! When we did move (I needed to be closer to my job) Nearly our entire security deposit was refunded very fast. No hassle, which is the FIRST time I have not had to hound an apartment complex regarding the security deposits. The communication between R&E is great. They also gave us 2 parking spots with a one bedroom which you usually only get when renting a two bedroom. Oh, and they're pet friendly!!! The pet deposits were the lowest I've paid in Los Angeles, I can't remember what they were, but I do remember being very pleasantly surprised when they told us the amount. Overall, very positive experience all around!
Don't believe the good reviews.I have lived in an R&E property for many years now. I would move for sure if it weren't for the ol' rent control. These people are borderline slumlords. You have to ask them time and time again to do repairs. I have resorted to just writing a letter and sending it by certified mail, because they have to respond to that in a reasonable amount of time. There is not one person living in the building that likes them. Not one. They are cheap, cheap, cheap. If you plan on living somewhere for a short time then okay, but if you want to feel at home, look elsewhere.
Borderline SlumlordsI'm quite surprised at all the good reviews here, they certainly don't live in my building.
These people are beyond awful!The biggest complaint here is the fact that if you need something done, it WILL NOT get fixed, until it becomes out of control or a health hazard.
Always write to the owner!!!First of all, if you want to detect a fake post, just look for things like "ignore the negative reviews." Really? Just because you've had a good experience means a prospective tenant should ignore the scores of negative reviews on this garbage operation called R&E Management? R&E is exactly what most of the reviewers claim it is: a bad management company. They are slow to fix anything and indifferent to your problems. They don't care. But folks, if you're ever displeased with your management company, please don't stop at just posting a review on CitySearch. Write a letter to the property owner. If you don't know who that person is, you can find it in the public record down in Norwalk. Many times owners don't know how miserable their property managers are, and a little tenant feedback can go a long way. I once got most of the tenants to sign a petition, and within weeks a new management company was hired. Unfortunately, that new management company was none other than R&E. I guess the moral of the story is, if you're looking for a rental, stay away from managed properties and go with managed-by-owner properties only!!!
Worst Management Company Ever!Ever since this management company took over my building i've had nothing but the worst problems of my life. There was a plumbing problem that they hired illegal workers to do that took 4months. During that time the water was off M-F, 8am-5pm, with no hot water at other times. WE'VE HAD NO WATER AT ALL FOR OVER 72 HOURS! the building was torn up for months, there was a trash problem that resulted in rats and roaches all over the building. i had several holes knocked in my walls to fix plumbing and for renovations of other apartments that were there for months. they never fix anything that you ask them and won't return your calls ever! they raised my rent despite all these problems and gave me multiple 3-day notices whenever i complained. wait... there's more. my apartment was entered on over 5 occasions that were not emergencies, without my permission. and at lease 75% of the tennants have had problems AT LEAST as bad as mine, ranging from broken windows, to mold, broken toilets, to ceilings falling in.... all not fixed for months on end. i could go on, but am starting to put myself in a bad mood. Lastly, i can't imagine anyone having an experience with them worth rating a 4 or 5. So all those reviews are most likely posted by the company. DO NOT TRUST THEM! GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING AND DO NOT CORRESPOND WITH THEM OTHER THAN LETTERS AND EMAILS.... MAKE SURE YOU CAN TRACK AND RECORD ALL CORRESPONDENCE. GOOD LUCK.
Nice company to work with!I've been with R&E for over 2 years now, and I mustsay that they've been really pleasant to work with. After reading all those things on CitySearch I got a little scared. But Brian has been great and the company has been reponsive as a whole. It took a little while to figure out the system but ever since then things have been going really well.
el peor servicio ded todosPARA MI ES UNA PESADILLA TRATAR CON ESTOS SENORES DE R&M LA VERDAD NUNCA ARREGLAN NADA Y CUANDO LO HACEN USAN PARTES USADAS, INCLUSO EN PEQUENOS LIQUEOS ELLOS SE TARDAN UNA INFINIDAD EN ARREGLAR, YO SOLO ESTOY ESPERANDO QUE LOS SENORES INSPECTORES DE LA CIUDAD ME AVISEN CUANDO VAN HA PASAR Y POR ESCRITO LES COMENTARE TODAS LAS ATROCIDADES QUE ESTOS SENORES COMETEN, HAY EDIFICIOS QUE ESTAN EN EL CONTROL DE RENTA DE LA CIUDAD ELLOS PAGAN UN POCO MENOS DE RENTA Y A ELLOS INCLUYENDOME YO NO LES REPARAN NADA, LA UNICA EXPLICACION QUE LOS "MANAGERS " DAN ES QUE COMO PAGAN POCA RENTA POR ESO ELLOS NO ARREGLAN...SI ALGUNA PERSONA QUE LEYERA ESTE REVIEW PUDIERA HACER ALGO LA VERDAD SE LO AGRADECERIAMOS MUCHOS...
EASIEST MOVE-IN I'VE EVER EXPERIENCEDLast year, i moved back to town, and needed an apartment very quickly, i contacted Brian and he showed me one of their apartments. i didn't think it was the right fit, so he showed me a few more until i found one that i was in love with. within an hour, i had signed a lease and the keys were in my hand...that year of living there was one of the easiest because anytime something happened with my apartment (minor leaks, plumbing situations), they were right there to fix it no questions asked.
I like my landlord.Yes, you read the headline correctly. I actually LIKE my landlord. I've been with them for 13 years and only leaving because they don't have vacancies for bigger units. They have always listened to any issues I've had with the apartment and building. I've locked myself out so many times and they keep coming to my rescue without complaining. I love my apartment and sad that I have to move on. I hope someone really great takes it over because it's an awesome building and the staff at R&E are awesome folks.
SLUMLORDS . You will regret getting involved with themOk if you are thinking of renting from them, stop now! We are currently living in one of their properties and it's absolute hell. These people redefine "SLUMLORDS". Their property manager, is a Russian immigrant named Alex who speaks NO english and only works Mondays. If something is wrong, you get locked out,need a repair, you're screwed if it's not Monday!!
