Morrowfield apatments (2715 Murray ave) The worst management I've ever dealt with. No matter what you ask them to do they won't deliver. The maintenance technicians can't boil an egg. I called the Mozart one day asking them to repair some… Full Review ▶
The best management ever. Really super responsive. Always pro-active and they ask if there are issues that they can help fix before you go to them. They are really very courteous and helpful when you have questions. Pros: Helpful Management -… Full Review ▶
If you are ever looking for an apartment in Pittsburgh, never go to Mozart Management. People you are going to deal with are just so terrible, you don't want to make another headache in you life. They are not personal at… Full Review ▶
Literally the worst company I have ever dealt with. Their maintenance staff rarely knows how to actually fix any issues in your apartment. If you make a large complaint, they tell you the have up to 3 months to help you.… Full Review ▶
It's a really terrible experience to live in Mozart Apartment for one year. You don't have any privacy, because the management will get in your apartment at any time. Almost three weeks ago, they knocked at my door and wanted me… Full Review ▶

Stay away from them. I am speaking here for Wendover Apartments in Squirrel Hill. The building is ancient and everything else like in lobby is as old as the building. The Mozart management are worst management company I have seen, they… Full Review ▶
Lot's of people complain about this place, but here's the bottom line. Mozart apartments is all business. They stick to their policy's and do nothing extra to help their tenants. Like most business they want their money, and as much as… Full Review ▶
Horrible if you prefer shopping online to going to stores. We have lost so many packages, stolen furniture? OK, that's valuable. But com'on, roll paper, coffee filter, shampoo, conditioner, ipad case, even gift cards??? WTF ? Whoever living nearby that is… Full Review ▶
The staff is rude. I was moving out due to military orders 2 months early and they wouldn't cut me a break on a 70 parking fee. Had I known the rules of the civil service relief act, I could have… Full Review ▶
I have been living in a Mozart building since August 1, 2012. The apartment I picked out a few months earlier appeared to be old but beautiful, well kept, and seemingly well managed. When I heard there was parking available, I… Full Review ▶
My complaint does not lie with the apartment complex/facilities they have provided me. This issue revolves around their willingness to help people. I have lived in my apartment for nearly a month now; working full time and now taking classes. For… Full Review ▶

I didn't see any reviews for Mozart until after I signed my lease, and to say I was nervous about moving in was an understatement. The reviews for this company are terrible!!! That being said, I have never had an issue… Full Review ▶

(Please forgive my poor English. I just want to share some experience with potential Mozart tenants.) Pro: - Professional employees in their maintenance team, and 24/7 quick respond to normal issues (e.g. leakage). - rooms are warm in winter (critical in… Full Review ▶
Mozart deliberately mistreats customers from a smile. I have spent 10 years working with a variety of landlords in Pittsburgh, and have never seen such flagrant apathy for customers. I spoke at length with Jim at their office on Aiken Ave,… Full Review ▶
I would not recommend renting from Mozart Management: 1. First day I moved in, the a/c unit in my bedroom didn't work. I called maintenance and they said they would be up to fix it. Since it was the first day… Full Review ▶
pros: the service crew is nice. Those people could do their job. Cons: those people in the leasing office are simply rude, and only care about your rent. You are just a number to them, nothing more. Their lease terms are… Full Review ▶
If you wanna have peace of mind stay away! Extremely noisy. Bad service...awful apartments. You are basically a number who only worth the check you bring to them the end of the month. Always waiting on the corner to make you… Full Review ▶

If you are in the Military, Mozart Management will require you to sign a waiver of the Soldiers and Sailors Act. Full Review ▶
I agree with the vast majority of posts--Mozart Management is BAD NEWS. What a shockingly and insultingly rude company! My story: I signed a lease a couple of weeks ago for which I need cosigners. I left my initial meeting all… Full Review ▶
Simply put, life is too short to not be happy with where you live - and you wont be living under this company's management if you have a soul. I really wonder how the people working for this company can actually… Full Review ▶
I'm not going to talk as much trash about Mozart as I've heard others do, because all of these things are outlined before you sign the lease, but it really takes living in one of their buildings to grasp the insanity.… Full Review ▶
Mozart management is awful. Rude, incompetent, and just plain ***holes. Not worth the time and money dealing with these people. Too cheap to insure their own buildings and they don't even clean the apartments before you move in. If I had… Full Review ▶
The apartment is okay, but is nowhere as bad as some people say. We've had some roach problems, but they will come and spray. They will always come if they are called in a reasonable time. The lease is kinda ridiculous,… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management basically makes you sign your life away in order to rent from them. They have a million stupid rules and policies and you basically have no freedom. They can enter your apartment whenever they want and write you up… Full Review ▶
Previously, I posted favorable reviews about Mozart Management. I retract those reviews. Though I have never, in 3 years as a tenant, caused trouble for Mozart, and I adhered to their bizarre rules, and paid extra money to park and keep… Full Review ▶
The Pros of living at the Wendover Annex and/or Renting with Mozart Management: - There is parking in the building for an extra fee (~P/mo) which is a plus since other places just tell you to park on the street or… Full Review ▶

I had a terrible experience with Mozart Management. I was so excited to move into my apartment until I found roaches and fleas. The staff is inhuman and expect you to live in these kind of conditions. You can always reach… Full Review ▶
Hi everyone. Sorry I don't have an actual review to write - I was hoping someone could share their experiences about the Schenley Arms apartment (4041 Bigelow Blvd). I'm a graduate student moving to Pittsburgh in August. Thanks for all your… Full Review ▶
Management will make up any rules that they want and claim that they fit into the 20 page lease. The move in weekend is completely rediculous. Will NOT be renewing my lease and will never rent with this company again. Full Review ▶
I currently live at the Wendover and will be moving out because I'm finally fed up with management. Management and Polices - Being a good renter means nothing when you want to renew (or really in general). Currently they give you… Full Review ▶
The random apartment checks are strange, yes, but they always help me when I need them. Over the time I've been here, I've called them when: my door lock broke, various drains clogged, the sink leaked and the wind blew out… Full Review ▶
Do you enjoy your landlord coming into your apartment to give you a report card on how clean your apartment is biweekly? Do you like maintenance coming in announced? Do you like having your dishwasher broken for 1 1/2, you report… Full Review ▶
My roommate and I live in the Arlington, and I can't wait to leave! We're currently having an awful situation with the management, so here's my story/run-down on the property: -Parking: It's $50/month for the lot, and you can't get a… Full Review ▶

My husband and I have lived in the Parklane for about a year and a half, and Mozart has continually astonished us with their lack of professionalism, concern for their tenants, or anything resembling ethical business practices. They change policies at… Full Review ▶
I am living in Wendover, which is an apartment of Mozart in Squirrel Hill. The radiators keep making very loud noise (like someone hits the water pipe with hammer), even during the night. It is impossible to fall asleep during the… Full Review ▶
I'm taking the previous poster's advice and contacting the BBB. After nearly 5 years with Mozart, this week I received a notice from them stating that they weren't renewing my lease. I have been a great tenant for them. I always… Full Review ▶

I've lived in both the Wendover (Sq. Hill) and the Tamarind (Regent Sq.) and have not much to complain about. Yes, the rent increases every year, which is expected. Nothing too exorbitant, around $30 or so. Maintenance has always been there… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management has an obsessive compulsive managerial team and a maintenance team that is completely opposite. Any apartment in Pittsburgh is expensive and most charge for parking. So, the expense was never my complaint. Here are just a couple of things… Full Review ▶
I have lived here for two years now. I've had a few problems, but nothing huge. There were cockroaches when I first moved in...not horrible, I saw two of them...but that was enough for me to call, and they came and… Full Review ▶

I heard bad things about Mozart, although all of them were after I started living in the Georgian. I'll just related my experience, and note that it did not match the bad experience of others. The main downside of this apartment… Full Review ▶
They do not consider that you may have birds. Manager is permitted to remove and DISPOSE of, physically and permanently, any animals or pets found in apartment! Full Review ▶
(I just posted this through Google maps so I don't know if it will come up twice now.) I will not make general statements about Mozart and will only give my own personal experience which was very positive. I lived in… Full Review ▶

Don't rent from Mozart Management. They use the same lease for every unit, no matter which of their buildings you live in. The lease is unfair and there are illegal clauses in it. They want you to give up your right… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management is inflexible, bureaucratic and rude. Things like WEEKLY water shut-offs from 9AM-noon so they can fix the building's plumbing; rental agents entering your apartment without bothering to call ahead; requiring you to park head on so they can check… Full Review ▶
We really enjoyed the apartment at Schenley Arms! It was a huge corner apartment, tons of storage and great style with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and new kitchen. The bathroom was old and was the part I didn't like. The other… Full Review ▶
I lived in a studio at the Arlington. My two biggest gripes. They don't allow you to paint the apartment however they do nothing to patch up the place. There were nails and holes left from the last tenant they were… Full Review ▶
As a tenant who did not sign a lease with Mozart, but was forced to become a tenant by the selling of the ex-Calmar/Ravenswood apartment building, my experience was unprofessional, harrassment, and insane. I warn anyone who uphold their spiritual beliefs… Full Review ▶
Mozart is not a good company to rent from. They do not care, they do not respect. They execute on the contract FULLY so make sure you read it. The thing that disturbed me most was rude office staff, "maintenance" randomly… Full Review ▶

Our experience of Parklane was nothing but nightmare. Issues were;

I am leaving my apartment because I feel that Mozart Management is extremely disrespectful. Since I've chosen to leave the apartment, I've discovered that new tenants pay a lower price. When I brought this to the attention of the management, they… Full Review ▶
I didnt check the comments about mozart before moving in and ended up with a painful 2 years experience. 1. they increased the rent about 6% after first year and 10% after 2nd year! Ridiculous! I am a girl living alone,… Full Review ▶
I'm quite surprised at the negative reviews. I have lived in 2 Mozart buildings, Arlington for 2 years and the Parklane for the past 2. In all, I have found them to be very responsive when I call. I had one… Full Review ▶
So things have been fairly uneventful with management, though there have been at least 2 showings of my apartment with maybe 30-40 mins notice. I guess that's their definition of "reasonable notice."

I've been living here for a year and have found the staff is courteous. All maintenance requests have been prompt. Considering the utilities are included, it's not a bad deal. The apartments *are* older (don't expect

The lease is somewhat draconian. For example, if you die in an accident, your co-signer is required to pay your rent for the duration of the lease. However, the Cloisters were well-maintained. The office staff was cold, but they were never… Full Review ▶
I dealt with these people for several years, in two different buildings, and I looked at apartments in several of their other buildings. I can say this, the buildings and apartments go from beautifully detailed and maintained to years of white… Full Review ▶
I agree with the negative comments on this board. Mozart is perhaps the worst property management company in the world. Their lease basically says: for your convenience you must give up all your rights to live here. I think particularly if… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management is terrible and I would never recommend them to anyone, in fact I tell as many people as possible how much they suck.
Sure my rent isn't the the most expensive in Pittsburgh but I (or anyone else) do… Full Review ▶

I lived at Mozart's roach-infested Heidelberg building. I rented one of the garages behind the building. The roof was slowly disintegrating onto my car. When I complained, the maintenance person came and nailed up a plywood panel.

Never EVER live at a Mozart managed property. The staff STEALS your belongings (I will not say more than that so as to protect privacy) and dismissed TERMITES and BROWN WATER as nothing out of the ordinary. They are corrupt and… Full Review ▶
I lived in what could easily be one of the best apartment complexes in Pittsburgh, if it were not for the antagonistic criminals that run the show.
Mozart management consists of a band of thieves, extortionists, and liars, who provide… Full Review ▶

Those who left good reviews about Mozart must not have seen the faces of the office staff (those who hide themselves behind the tiny opening on the wall and sound like you owe them a thousand bucks) - maybe they are… Full Review ▶
The management office staff is the most rude, unfriendly and unhelpful group of people that I have ever dealt with. They have zero respect for the tenants.
The maintenance staff and service were great. I chose to renew my lease… Full Review ▶

When it comes to customer service, Mozart is not the place to be. The do not believe in treating tenants as people. Full Review ▶
All I have to say is: Read the lease before you sign it...and HAVE A LAWYER read the lease, too. Most likely you´ll be told, "Don´t sign such a restrictive document."

I can see where everyone is coming from- yes the lease is probably the most ridiculous lease that I have ever seen, but aside from that I have had nothing but good experiences with Mozart. I even had a circumstance where… Full Review ▶
You get the gyst of it reading the headlines, everything about mozart sucks. I´m in the parklane out in highland park - run down, overpriced (nice windows though!), annoying.
Not unusual to wait 4-6 months for response from Mozart. Leaving in… Full Review ▶
This is an update to the posting "Mozart: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly." of 4/22/03.
I now remove the word good from the title.
I have had my personal property damaged by the incompetant maintance workers, and now… Full Review ▶
Not much new to add, here´s the basic idea:
1. The office staff are barely human.
2. The terms of the lease are truly exploitative. Most absurd is the 5-month renewal commitment. One thing I found very suspicious (anyone… Full Review ▶
I echo everyone´s comments that Mozart is really out for the $$ and individual customers mean nothing to them. Read the lease carefully - there are hidden charges everywhere. Also be aware that you will be asked to renew 5 months… Full Review ▶
I have been living in the wendover apartments since 2001 and my living experiene and dealings with the management have been quite satisfactory.
The plus points were:
1. Broom Clean apartment to start with.
2. Walls are very thick and… Full Review ▶
Wish I had seen these reviews early, because this was the worst place I´ve ever lived in.
First the lease was ridiculous, among other things it required that you decide to move out or renew 5 (5!) months before it… Full Review ▶
Reviewing the other comments here makes me glad I hadn´t read them before moving in. The one bad thing I will say is that maintanance does enter the apartment more frequently without warning than they should. but everytime we have had… Full Review ▶
Although the apartments are nice enough, Mozart is absolutely evil with regards to rules. I asked one manager, "Isn´t the customer always right?" He said, "No, the cusotmer is always right except when a legal document says otherwise." I said, "So… Full Review ▶
You are better off anywhere else. ------ front desk, ---- employees, horrible service. They don?t care about the tenant, all they care about is $$$ and how they can screw you over. Yes I am a disgruntled tenant, stay away and… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management is an awful management company. They charge high rents, increase the rents from year at unreasonable percentages and do not respond to even the most reasonable and humane requests. They are extremely rigid and do not care about the… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management has proven itself time and time again to be one of the least proffesional and inflexible companies in the state of Pennsylvania. I will give you a short example but can garuntee you that this situation was not an… Full Review ▶
Mozart Management is horrible. When I first moved in, I smelled gas. Not a good sign. After I moved in, maintenance entered the apt whenever the heck they wanted for no apparent reason. That itself was creepy. Meanwhile, when you need… Full Review ▶
You can certainly find somewhere better to live for not much more. 520, which is the new rental price for our our studio at the centre ave location, is ridiculous. Not to mention the new $30 utilities cost, and one-time $300… Full Review ▶
This is the worst apartment I have ever lived. Don´t tell the management anything is broken, it will just make them mad. I told them my intercom wasn´t working and had call and call and call for about 3-4 months to… Full Review ▶
This whole management company is out for one thing and that is $$$. They could care less about what you think. This is basically what happens when the people at the top project a certain attitude and all the people below… Full Review ▶
I have been renting for over 5 years and have NEVER had so many problems. The outside of their building is georgeous. structurally inside - another story. Mozart Mgt. tells me they take pride in the up keep of their buildings-… Full Review ▶
I looked at a couple of apartments at the Parklane (high-rise in Highland Park).
1. The person showing me the apartment was extremely rude ("you have to hurry up I only have a half an hour").
2. I spoke with some… Full Review ▶
Ok, so I am a graduate student. Mozart is terrible. Workers are rude, and many enter your apartment without notice. Things don´t get fixed, and conditions are bad.
My advice: go somewhere else Full Review ▶
The only problem I have found in renting from Mozart is the lease. They force you to sign 5 months in advance. It makes it completely impossible to buy a house and not be able to move out without being screwed… Full Review ▶
Hated renting from them. Entered apartment regularly without prior notice. Building infested with roaches. Over-priced. Rude staff. constantly came home to find that i had no water. Parking was available but overpriced. Do not rent from them. Full Review ▶
Management was unresponsive, and downright mean. The most unprofessionally-worded lease I have ever been asked to sign. Office staff rude and unhelpful. Some of the buildings could be nice, but they put no work or effort into them. I lived in… Full Review ▶
I´ve been living in apartments for 5 years now, and I´ve been in some hell-holes. This was by far the worst. The staff was rude and condescending right from the first. They made me get a co-signer for the lease, even… Full Review ▶
The apartment was nice (only VERY dirty when we moved in)--lots of windows, good air circulation, and cheap parking (although our car was broken into twice in a matter of 6mo).
The main downfall of the place is the unfriendly,… Full Review ▶
management sucks. lease renewal 6 months prior to lease expires - 3 month penalty for leaving "early" or on-time if you didn?t know what your plans were 6 months in advance
owned by skip schroeder ... ------ front office - most… Full Review ▶
The people of Mozart management wholly and unequivocally do not care about their tenants. This is from talking with many others who rented from them, not just my own personal ramblings.
Get this, you are required to resign your… Full Review ▶
Beware that you may have to wait a while to have something fixed that is not minor! They NEVER steam cleaned our living room rugs or painted the holes in our living room wall although I called them consistently for the… Full Review ▶
Expect a fight on your hands if you want anything fixed in you apartment besides painting (done 5 months after you move in) or a drain unclogged. Management must be hounded to respond to written requests.
Also, they mean it… Full Review ▶
Basic apartment renting under Mozart Mgmt
is fine but if, at some point,
you might need something like an extra lock (which
many apts already have--mine hadn´t) or need
to install an A/C, prepare for high charges. Trying
to reason with… Full Review ▶
this is the same outfit that was successfully sued by a former (fired) agent who was forced to not rent to minorities. i´ve known four parties including myself who got NO money back from their security deposits for "damage" ... this… Full Review ▶
