Resident Reviews

submitted by Brian F. - |Recommended: YesSimple, yet very well maintained — Nice, well-kept bulding and apartments. The staff is very nice and quick to respond to any requests or concerns, and the apartment is simple, yet well built. Sometimes I wish I had rented with them since I arrived to CU
response from property -Thank you, Brian! We are happy you are enjoying your home with Royse+Brinkmeyer!
submitted by Lisa H. - |Recommended: YesTaurean Haywood — Landon and all other staff was very polite and professional every time I spoke with them. I would recommend Royse Brinkmeyer. I look forward to returning for the Fall.
response from property -Thank you, Lisa! We're excited to have you!
submitted by Erdong S. - |Recommended: YesThe apartment is maintained well — Especially the speed of the maintenance.
response from property -Thanks Erdong! We're glad you are enjoying our maintenance service!
submitted by Rebecca U. - |Recommended: YesReasonably priced, simple but affordable — The apartments are a bit older and some of the features are outdated, but the apartments are reasonably priced and very affordable. They are simple, but supply all the necessities. They are in a nice location near downtown Champaign and on the bus line. Maintenance is very responsive and thorough and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
response from property -Thanks for your review, Rebecca!
submitted by Netanel F. - |Recommended: YesGreat value and location — The apartment is great. large enough that it doesn't feel like a cramped dorm room yet small enough that I dont have tons of empty space. and exorbitant utility bills The apartment doesn't have central air which is something I thought would be a problem during the summer months, however, the ac unit has been able to maintain a cool temperature. As for Location there is a gym,library, and multiple places to eat within walking distance. In addition there is a bus stop on the corner of the block so transportation to university is easy. The neighbors are pretty calm when it comes to noise. I may sometimes hear a voice through a wall, but, that is rare. Overall, a very pleasant company to rent from and an apartment that feels like a proper home.
response from property -We really appreciate your feedback, Netanel!
submitted by Jorge T. - |Recommended: YesThe property is calm in well condition — Quiet, peaceful. friendly neighbors.
response from property -Thanks Jorge!
submitted by John F. - |Recommended: YesExcellent — Yes, this is not a perfect place the building is old, heat system is noisy, etc. But if you consider the whole spectrum of this apartment - low rent price, very friendly management office and very efficient maintenance team, you would have a feeling, I am sure, that this place is the best one you could find in our small city. I have lived in this apartment for three years. My experience as a tenant is wonderful
response from property -Thank you John!
