DON'T EVER RENT FROM GUY LAREN. He is greedy and takes advantage of the college students in University City. They are terribly slow to respond to maintenance requests (it took two calls to the maintenance office and a whole week, and zero notice of the repairman showing up, for them to come and not even fix the problem), if you even have their phone number in the first place. They used to have wonderful, responsive staff at the Woodland office, but once they left there was absolutely NO communication or forwarding of information. They gave us less than 24 hours notice that they were showing out apartment to potential renters and didn't even bother to inquire if we wanted to renew our lease. I CAN'T WAIT to move out of this crap hole. you can't beat the location for the price (I'm a few blocks away from my school) but it was not worth the headache of everything else.
Additionally, the staff, with the exception of one woman, were not friendly at all.
