Typical drunk who treats tenants like crap, but he also preys on low income people and families. Doesn't really matter to him if you have children - he still will try to avoid fixing something as long as possible even if its unsafe. Kind of blows things off like problems go away if no one addresses them.
Skip him at all costs unless you want to be miserable and/or end up suing him. Town officials are aware of him and I was told "he used to be good, but his properties are disaster now . We can't figure it out either." He is well known in Montclair and Jersey city for this kind of crummy treatments of all tenants. Inept staff broke more things than they ever fixed and known for hiring ex-cons, drug addicts and people who have issues with theft.
