Resident 2020 - 2021

JSM has zero sense of privacy. First year this was not as much an issue, but second year my building had people "upgrade" our AC units and spent a whole week living in our apartment and drill from early morning and did not leave until… See More >

    They do not respect the rights of the tenants at all, and there is no clause in the contract to protect the tenants. There are always parties in the surrounding buildings, and the sound insulation is very poor. When I called JSM, they said there… See More >

      The apartment looks nice, thought it's quite small and the price is high compared to the other apartments nearby. I like the storage space, it has plenty and you can easily accommodate all your stuffs here. The fixtures seem fine so far, couch is quite… See More >

        I started living with JSM this fall (2020) and have renewed my lease for next year. The location (for me) is perfect, it's close to my academic buildings, and not too far from anything if I need to walk. I haven't needed to call maintenance… See More >

          My apartment with JSM is great for my life as a student. It is a 5 minute walk to campus, has restaurants and coffee shops right below it, and has an in-unit washer and dryer which are all important to me. My building is generally… See More >

            Heard they were looking for positive reviews from old friends who live there. This place sucks. They keep your deposit and will give you a run around, so happy I moved out but it cost me money because they are unscrupulous landlords who take advantage… See More >

              My favorite part is the monthly pest control. I've seen less than five bugs during my 1.5 years in my current apartment, which is amazing. The apartment is super nice and conveniently located. It's pretty highly priced, but considering the location and the fact that… See More >

                You don't have to fight to get maintenance to come like you do with other landlords. There is clear communication between landlord and tenants. The amenities are also good. Overall a very good place to rent from.… See More >

                  DON'T EVER rent your apartment with JSM!!! They simply can enter your apartment WHENEVER they want. I have lived with them for two years. Now I cannot wait to escape from their property and move into my new apartment. This year around, they stormed into… See More >

                      If you go to the Tenant Union and look up the complaint records for JSM, they will tell you point blank that this management has a clause in their contract that waives your right to quiet enjoyment in your apartment: Meaning they can come in… See More >

                      If I had a choice, i would rather live in a tent than to live in any one of the JSM properties. The place where i live in, Lando Place, is just way outdated and no one should live in this place since everything is… See More >

                        Despite their efforts to make the apt look good, a lot of facilities don't function. There are serious problems with the sink and toilet. They don't drain well and always look clogged. The toilet's value does not function. NOT enough water coming out to create… See More >

                          This unit is by far the WORSE unit you can possibly get yourself into. When I first moved in, there were some SERIOUS mold on walls and carpet was disgusting. The apartment itself was disgusting'!! I fell sick the first week. Not to mention the… See More >

                            JSM Management is by far the most unprofessional and disrespectful real estate company in Champaign. The upper-division management were rude and inconsiderate when responding to tenant emails.

                                I would really like to say I enjoyed living here, but I am unable to. The apartments themselves are nice (albeit very small) but they are very overpriced by square footage, especially when compared to other apartments of an equivalent standard. The real problem here,… See More >

                                  I would not recomment JSM Apartments in Normal, IL (Uptown Crossing) as the owners and their staff misrepresent the rights of tenants.
