Colin was a great landlord who was there to help us whenever we needed. He truly cares about his tenants, and unlike other landlords, truly wants to fix all the possible issues he can! He was very personal, and didn’t make it seem like a burden to do any work we asked of him. Great guy, 10/10.
Renting was overall a good experience. Very few problems over the two years I rented, and when there were, they were addressed pretty quickly. Communication was easy and personal, with a direct line to Colin, the landlord. It wasn't a big management company or anything confusing.
Colin treated us with respect and diligence. I can confidently say you will never find another landlord as awesome and helpful as him. He is extremely understanding of tenant’s issues and does his best to resolve them in a timely and accommodating manner. I miss this guy, he’s our king.
All these reviews about Colin being an inattentive landlord are not true. He is the best landlord you will get compared to the ones any other temple real estate company will give you. He establishes a professional relationship with you, and does everything he can to fix any issues you have. My new rental property with temple villas, we don’t even have an agent and we constantly have to call the office for problems. With Colin, he would treat us like he really cares.
Collin is a very flexible and respectful landlord. He was always responsive very quickly to help with any issues we had regarding the property and would check things out himself rather than sending somebody we didn’t know. We had a great experience with him and would highly recommend because he is one funny guy.
Great first landlord for my son! Everything needed for smooth move-in/move-out was sent in emails. Colin was easy to contact and responded quickly. He never entered the apartment without the appropriate notification. Even after the lease was over, Colin was easy to reach and helped to quickly resolve an issue when the new tenants didn’t change a utility into their names. Overall, Colin Coppola is very professional, kind and understanding! My son only changed landlords to move in with friends.
Colin was the best landlord I could have asked for when first moving off campus for Temple. He was very responsive, honest, understanding, and helpful with the unit. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone looking for high-quality affordable units close to Temple's campus.
I rented from Temple Roosts for 3 years. We kept renewing because they were always available for anything we needed, and really made an effort to make sure we were always good! Colin always communicated really well. My parents were cautious about me living off campus, but after 3 years they were so happy that Colin made things easy and loved that he was my landlord. Definitely recommend!!
My roommates and I felt like Colin genuinely cared about our living environment and that he went above and beyond, responding to our requests quickly and doing things he didn’t have to. We even had a nightmare roommate issue that we had to work out, and he helped us in a HUGE way. I read through some of these reviews and the negative ones seem crazy to me - we never got any of those vibes, just the opposite! I renewed with them a few years when I was at Temple, and would highly recommend.
Myself and 5 others rented with Colin for 2 years. Colin was very great with communication and was very responsive to any requests that we had. He was very timely and helpful with any issues or questions we had with the apartment. Colin was always very helpful and friendly. If I was staying in the area I would have continued to rent with Colin. I would definitely recommend Colin as a landlord!!
Myself and 5 others lived together for 2 years in one of Collin’s properties. He was responsive, respectful of our time and space, fixed all and any issues we brought up, and was overall a good landlord. He helped us with little things like bringing us lightbulbs to even offering to remove a closet/wall so that our living room would have more space. Even after moving out he has been helpful to us. Overall this was a positive experience and I would recommend Collin and his properties to others.
I rented from Colin for two years, but I wish it was longer! I just so happened to be moving out of the area but I would rent from him again in a heartbeat. From his super easy going pet policy to getting on facetime with me to talk me through unclogging a drain, he seriously was the best.
The rental experience with Temple Roosts has been nothing except positive. Colin has always gotten back to us within 24 hours, even on weekends. Colin has always been transparent with us and we have been transparent with him as well. Throughout the pandemic Colin has taken care of us to the best of his ability despite the challenges.
Colin always responded to any issues we had and was very hasty to any issues regarding the property. Colin was always nice and announced his presence for the times he had to come out to the apartment. If I could, I would sign on a property that Colin manages again next year!
Colin was a genuinely great landlord, I'm grateful to have had him considering how iffy landlords tend to be around campus. He always responded quickly to issues and gave us fair warning before coming to the apartment. He was an all around nice guy and seemed to care about us as tenants, which is what anyone could really hope for. I'd definitely recommend leasing with Colin!
I rented one of Colin’s properties for 1 year & he was a great landlord. Never had any issues with his communication & responding to requests. There were a few issues with the apartment that most properties in that area deal with & he addressed them each quickly & professionally. He never showed up without notice & made himself available if we had a short notice request. I didn’t renew my lease due to moving out of the area but if I had stayed I definitely would have continued renting from him!
Colin was a GREAT Landlord, After hearing all the horror stories of property management groups we were happy to have found Colin. He was prompt to respond, personable, and was EXTREMELY helpful with any issues we had including neighbor issues. Anytime there was an issue he couldn't resolve immediately, he made to give us great timelines/updates. Colin would often tell us how much he enjoyed having us as tenants and we ended up renewing and staying for 2 yrs before graduating. HIGHLY recommend!
The tenant was my son. After graduation he moved to another location. There were 5 students in the house who respected and cared for the property. The landlord provided great communication and responsiveness to any issues. The experience for my son was very positive in dealing with the landlord. I would highly recommend Temple Roosts and this property to any tenant who takes on the required level of responsibility to care for and respect something that they do not own, but rent.
The landlord often broke the lease terms. Utilities wouldn't be repaired for weeks. Landlord wandered in several times to look around without any notification as was written in the lease he had to. Had fake locks up and didn't notify us and didn't care when our apartment got broken into.
RUN AWAY FROM HIS PROPERTIES. Unless you want to live in half done homes that he guts, tries to put a pretty shine on, and half finishes that is. Don't understand these positive reviews, absolute worst landlord I've ever had. Complained about a potential security issue he waved off and when our place was broken into he basically laughed. What a horrible landlord, gives a bad name.
Renting with a Colin Coppola went smoother than it had with any of my previous landlords. He's very efficient, communicative and responsive. He made our living situation very easy. Any issues that arose, he addressed and helped us with immediately. I would absolutely rent from Colin again, given the opportunity.
Temple Roosts- Renting from Colin was an absolute breeze, and I cannot thank him enough for all the help he gave me in regards to being flexible with early move-in to the property. Things were always repaired, and he would get back to me without hesitation on anything that needed taken care of.
The house on 2032 N Gratz Street is a prime example of how affordable and convenient Philadelphia housing can be. Only a few blocks away from Temple University's main campus, and located on a nice street with many families at a very affordable price. While the house is older, All maintenance requests were handled promptly and correctly, and for University students, the home was well equipped to handle day-to-day needs. Colin Coppola was an extraordinary landlord and quick to respond to q's
Mr. Coppola is the finest landlord that I have ever had the pleasure to rent from. He is super attentive, and will have any problem fixed extremely quickly. He has an empathetic side to him and treats his tenants like friends. The property that I lived in was in North Philadelphia, but Mr. Coppola took great measures to ensure that myself and my roommates were safe at all times. Not to mention the rental rates that he charges are the best I could find in that area. If you are a Temple student like myself, I highly recommend renting a property from Mr. Coppola
When I moved to Philly to go to school at Temple, a friend referred me to Colin because she had rented from him before. From the very first time we met, he was very nice and accommodating. I appreciated that he worked around my busy schedule to show me the apartment, and answered all of my questions. It was my first time renting away from home so I had quite a few. From moving in and during the two years I lived there, I never had any problems. A couple minor issues came up from time to time, but he always got right back to us and issues were handled quickly. Overall it was a great experience during my first 2 years in Philly.
Great landlord, very responsive!
My friends and I rented one of Colin's places for our last two years at Temple and can't speak highly enough of him as a landlord. He was very attentive, communicative, and resolved any issues right away. If you're able to snag one of his spots, jump on it, you won't be disappointed! Thanks again for everything, Colin!
Colin was AWESOME! Always helpful and responded quickly to fix things right away. He Helped me deal with a bad roommate situation when he didn't have to.l as well. Communicated well and made upgrades to our house all the time. Would definitely rent from him again!
Great place to live!! The property was very well maintained and close to everything. The landlord Mr. Coppola, was very responsive, respectful, and courteous. Would definitely recommend renting from Colin Coppola for anyone looking for great affordable housing near Temple.
He’s actually the worst landlord i’ve ever had. He doesn’t follow the lease at all. We had a disgusting pest problem and it took him very long to respond. He asks for more money then stated on the lease. He has a terrible attitude and cares about none of his tenets. I would go out of my way to make sure people don’t rent from him to save them the trauma he puts us through
He was extremely rude to my roommates and me consistently. he would hire unprofessional people and often gave us little notice that they were coming and they would be hours late. had a pest problem and he refused to cooperate. literally the worst landlord ive ever had.
