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 yet… 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 quiet… 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 I… 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
