City Average

If I could rate them with no stars, I would. I've lived in a lot of apartments and I've never had such an issue with getting my security deposit back!! Out of the $1200 deposit they gave us $325! They enclosed… Full Review ▶


Very poorly constructed units. I have NEVER been denied my security deposit, EVER, let alone be charged on top of that. $600 for "SPOT" painting?! And it was never painted properly to begin with. Unbelievable!! Before I moved in, I read… Full Review ▶


The Townhouses on Glen Eagles Dr. in Erie PA are not worth the money. They are in poor shape and poorly built. The floors ate not level, the walls and ceilings are cracking. Joints between the ceiling and walls are cracking.… Full Review ▶


Palermo realty is the worst company I have ever worked with in anyway whatsoever. Walls are so thin you can hear ever word your neighbors say, they are not help when you need them, way over priced, never plow or deal… Full Review ▶


As a student attending a nearby university who has lived in 2 other residences prior to this one, Palermo has not fallen short of one of the worst companies I have ever dealt with in terms of professionalism, maintenance, and overall… Full Review ▶


I rented from them during the 2013-2014 school year on Hope Dr because I am a student at Penn State Behrend. There are a number of reasons why people should NOT even consider living here. First they barely plow; a number… Full Review ▶


Basically, the place I'm staying in is one of their "millionaire row" properties. For one thing, I don't have a shower. I have a tub and that's it. Zero space. The mainentance people are terrible. I was locked out one night… Full Review ▶


We lived in Palermo Realty for about 2.5 years and moved out in the last quarter of 2013. Our experience with Apartment Management was very bad. The Management is very greedy and rude in communication. They never return the security deposit… Full Review ▶


My family rented a townhouse for 2 months. We were in between homes and needed somewhere for a brief period until we closed on our house. My wife and I are completely dissatisfied with Palermo. We paid $600 for the deposit… Full Review ▶


DO NOT RENT FROM PALERMO! The house was great, but the customer service was HORRIBLE. They robbed me of my security deposit. Also, I was lied to about lease extension. Don't fall into the same trap as me. I am reporting… Full Review ▶


If you like to sleep or relax in your home you can forget it. You can hear your neighbors going to the bathroom, walking, talking, shutting doors, drawers,anything you can imagine. It causes an extremely uncomfortable and tense situation. There is… Full Review ▶


Palermo realty is HORRIBLE. I've lived in my apartment for about 6 weeks now. We don't have to pay heat, so Palermo controls it. The heat has never once been turned on in our apartment. We finally called yesterday to tell… Full Review ▶


Basically they own erie county as far as home rentals. The sad thing is is that they screw their renters. They charged us over 3/4 of our security deposit for things that aren't right. When they give you your security deposit… Full Review ▶


My son is a plastics engineering student at PSB, plays baseball there also, works very hard. He is renting a Palermo property and had to wait for his college refund to come in to pay his full semester rent, $1830.00. The… Full Review ▶


They are by far the worst Realty in the state of PA!!! They do not care about their tenants or property for that matter. They put SLUM in slum lord! They don't exterminate their buildings! They are EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL! THEY ARE… Full Review ▶


Here are some down sides to living at Palermo: -When the carpeting, screens, flooring etc needs replaced after 5 or 6 years, the costs are placed on the most recent tenants. -Don't expect them to be proactive when it comes to… Full Review ▶


Expect massive charges once you move out. You'd expect normal wear and tear from year to year and only renovate when necessary, this is not the case for Palermo. If there is ANY mark on the wall, the entire wall will… Full Review ▶


Here are a few examples of my experience with Palermo: 1. When the salesman (Bob... He still works there) was showing me around the apartment he kept trying to convince me that a semester meant from September to May therefore making… Full Review ▶


Palermo is by far the worst company I have rented from before. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM. They are horrible with fixing things, the properties are cheaply made, they overcharge for damages, the office staff is a nightmare, they never return… Full Review ▶


Way overpriced and poverish living conditions. Absolutely zero maintenance and horrible customer service also. All tennants were scumbags with no jobs and the quality of the apartment was piss poor. In addition, no one ever came to collect the garbage so… Full Review ▶


I have been a tenant of Palermo Realty for a few years now and astonished at some of the reviews that I have read on this site. I love my apartment and have never had a bad experience with the rental… Full Review ▶


Horrible realters for the following reasons: 1. They never fix your maintenance requests. Their definition of fixing water damage is sanding and painting over it so it just leaks again weeks later. 2. They are unorganized when it comes to billing.… Full Review ▶


Horrible people to rent from, like the other people say, they are money theives.... I am renting from them now and I cant wait to get the hell out of here... first off way too pricey, the place is a complete… Full Review ▶


They should put a sign up for when you drive in: "Abandon all Hope!" They are evil. Full Review ▶

Do not rent from these money sucking people!! They expect their place to look like Martha Stewart but give you a crap hole when you move in. I paid professional cleaners and my place was immaculate when I left. However they… Full Review ▶


I can tell you honestly that one of there current employees says they are "THEIVES"! Don't trust smooth talking "BRUCE"! The Sons are "LAZY"! The Staff is never helpful! Lets now get into the simple facts...the apt looks great, the decking… Full Review ▶


don't do it you will regret it! The staff are difficult to get a hold of and lazy. I've yet to meet anyone that has gotten their deposit back, which is a substantial amount of money for "so-called" damages that they… Full Review ▶


I've rented from Palermos for four years in two different apartments. Currently live in Brookwood Village. I am very satisfied and I would give the Brookwood manager the highest rating possible. I've read some of these old negative reviews and it… Full Review ▶


The apartments and customer service are sub-standard. Maintenance is done as cheap as possible, if at all. The buildings are set up poorly and it amazes me that they pass fire inspection. The employees have been either rude or creepy. Fleas… Full Review ▶


He will steal your deposit and force you to live in a run-down place that is never fixed up. Do not trust him. Do not believe in these fake reviews that are 20 in number and a few days apart. How… Full Review ▶


This little organization has screwed so many people out of their deposit, they are unethical. On top of that there are a pile of "hidden costs" not mentioned in the lease. They billed me $450 over my deposit even for damages… Full Review ▶
