There is a reason I've chosen to renew my lease every time at Brittany, which has been my home since I moved to Pittsburgh. The staff are courteous and understanding, the maintenance workers respond to problems quickly and properly, and I've… Full Review ▶

When one looks for an apartment, he or she is filled with questions about the cost, place, the surrounding areas, and even suitability. Sometimes, there is that drawback when he or she found a perfect place but then to be disappointed… Full Review ▶

What sold me on moving here is that my previous apartment was not sound insulated at all. The rental agent here at the Brittany told me that in order to hear anyone while in my apartment, they would have to be… Full Review ▶

This is excellent affordable housing for graduate students. I've lived here for 1.5 years and am only moving because I graduated and got a job in a different city. Pros: - Rent is very affordable (I paid $550 a month for… Full Review ▶

We have lived at Sherwood towers for 2 years and we are sorry to leave. The apartment is spacious with central air-conditioning and heating is included in the rent. Because it is in a busy area, the windows are specially soundproofed… Full Review ▶

I've lived in the Brittany for nearly 2 years and I am very happy here. The driveways/parking lots are always plowed and salted in a timely manner (always before the roads are clear). I have a slightly different layout to my… Full Review ▶

The Avalon Arms Apartment Building is clean, the grounds are nicely decorated and well-kept. There is an underground garage and a parking lot in the back of the building. The apartment manager is friendly and helpful, as well as the maintenance… Full Review ▶

This building is not a pleasent place to live. Yes, the apartmens themselves are ok, but the staff are completely ignorant and rude. The Super is a complete jerk who thinks he's knows everything about anything. I would NOT reccomend living… Full Review ▶

I can hear my neighbors above me urinating, walking, chasing each other, etc.
Doing the laundry is inconvenient as you are put on a schedule--you have 4 hours, once a week. There are blocks of unscheduled times but I work and it's… Full Review ▶

Unfortunately I had to leave the Bryn Mawr because I relocated for job purposes, but if I was still in Pittsburgh, this is where I would want to be. I could write a thesis statement on the great things about this… Full Review ▶

I really enjoyed living at the Bryn Mawr. The buildings are clean and well-maintained, and our 2-bedroom was VERY spacious and nice, especially for the price. My only complaint is that, when I unexpectedly changed jobs and needed to move to… Full Review ▶

Anyone knows living at the bryn mawr was a pleasant experience when dealing with Sandy who was let go without notice in February 2004, our resident manager. Now in 4/04, we do not have a resident manager, we no longer have… Full Review ▶

I have lived at the Brittany for a year. I have a very nice studio for very little $. They allow cats, have ample parking, quick maintenance. Be prepared that 65% of residents are over 55, but that means less noise.… Full Review ▶

I lived in the apartment complex for almost 3 years; two years in a two bedroom and 1 year in a one bedroom. My overall experiences dealing with McKinney Properties have been very unpleasant.

I have been a resident at Bryn Mawr apartments for almost 12 years. Today, October 1, I was unable to leave the garage due to resurfacing. The administrators gave the residents less than 24 hours notice (signs posted in the afternoon… Full Review ▶

I live in Sherwood Towers. It´s owned by McKinney Properties, but the building isn´t listed on it´s own here. Hopefully that will be fixed.

It´s a great apartment. Maintenance isn´t snappy, but things are done in a timely fashion.
