After dealing with Susan Besinger, I'm pretty sure that she is mentally unstable. Sadly, I'm not at all exaggerating. She easily becomes verbally abusive and flips out. She also doesn't follow the law and return security deposits. She is possibly one of the greediest people I… See More

Lincoln tower apartments are horrible! It's dirty, unkempt, and unsafe. Nothing ever seems to get fixed. The elevators break down regularly, and usually have gang signs written on them. It's not a safe place to live. The building always smelled dirty, moldy, and on my floor… See More

You can obviously completely disregard the 5.0 ratings that were certainly posted by a Horizon employee. I can't say it was the worst slum in Dekalb, but you can definitely find better. Maintenance was a joke; they never (despite repeated attempts) responded to any requests we… See More
