Resident Reviews

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|Recommended: YesReasonably priced, simple but affordable — The apartments are a bit older and some of the features are outdated, but the apartments are reasonably priced and very affordable.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!

submitted by Alvin S. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live, quiet neighbors — It was the cleanest apartment I have ever moved in to. Carpets and appliances were either relatively new or just kept in great condition.
submitted by Shannon I. - |Recommended: YesJust a nice place to live — It's not fancy, but it's quiet. The management and maintenance are really friendly, professional, and helpful! I was able to find and rent this apartment entirely online, which was great, since I was living overseas. My friends who rent from R & B have all had good experiences, too. Thank you!
submitted by Tracy - |Recommended: YesConvenient & Quiet Location — It's close to campus and downtown. Plus, the green line bus stops at the corner and takes you to campus. Most everyone is quiet and respectful. Maintenance fixes items in the apartment in a timely manner. I've lived here for 5 years and am sad to live it.
