Resident 2017 - 2021

I am a Registered Nurse who works day shift. In September the management company moved in a young party couple above me who one night partied until 6am. They continued to be up late at night pacing, playing with their dog, stomping around, having loud conversations, etc. I let management know (after talking to the couple who said they didn't care, that it was just how they lived). Management said they sent a "noise reminder" email however the behavior continued for six weeks. I was unable to sleep. I emailed management every day as the sleep deprivation got worse and worse. For six weeks I was kept up until 1, 2, or 3am with the neighbors pounding above me. I lived here four years and this was the first couple to live like this. Due to the ineptitude of management, I finally had to call the Oak Park Police Department who finally put a stop to it by letting the tenets know that they need to be quiet after 11pm. The party couple were willing to listen to the police. I have never been so badly abused by a management company in my entire life. If you are a first… See More>

    DO NOT RENT FROM THEM. Staff is terrible. Lost by job due to covid and there was nothing they could do to help me out while I try and land on my feet again. They also towed my truck that I pay an extra $80 a month for. They forgot to update my records for my new truck and since that email was on my old work email they will not refund me. DO NOT RENT from them.

      I haven't had any issues with neighbors. Maintenance comes promptly when something needs fixing. Rent is paid automatically from my checking account. I'll probably keep living here for a while because it's close to the Green Line.

        I think the kitchen was redone just before I moved in because there was still some tape on the refrigerator shelves. The bathroom seemed new too but it might be a couple of years old, I'm not sure. In any case it's nice and was spotless when I moved in. I've barely heard my neighbors. My few maintenance problems have been taken care of quickly, without me having to call anyone since I made the requests online. Very good situation overall.

          Jesus Christ... I don't even know where to start. 1. Don't be fooled by the name "Oak Park." Everyone knows Oak Park is a decent neighborhood, but this apartment complex is located exactly on the boarder of Oak Park and next to the ------. That means homeless, gangbangers and drug addicts are marching around your apartment all day like the zombie apocalypse, and don't be surprised if bullets start flying right in front of your apartment. 2. The entire complex has only two washers and two dryers, and occasionally one or two of them are out of order. This means stay in line if you ever decided to take care of your laundry. The laundry "room" is located in the basement which looks like a haunted house. One day I opened the door and saw two men sitting on the dryers smoking marijuana. 3. The apartment complex has very limited parking spots to offer, and they charge $100+/month for them. This requires you to end up parking in the street. Oak Park is famous for having parking problems. They give tickets all the time to people who have no choice other than to park on the street. I've… See More>

            If you rent a parking space, maintenance will park in it. If you complain, maintenance will dump paint on your car in the middle of the night. If a random person parks in your spot, management will refuse to tow them. $65 a month for absolutely nothing in return. If you complain, management will refuse to renew your lease. Good riddance. No attention paid to upkeep and landscaping. Make sure to check the shooting maps. Oak park might be nice, but a lot of people are getting killed a few blocks over. Laundry room has 2 machines and looks like a dungeon. Machines rarely work.

              It was easy to find an apartment with them and they are easy to contact if I ever need anything. My radiator was acting weird and they came later that day to fix it. Sometimes I hear other people in the building but mostly everybody is pretty quiet.

                I am really satisfied with the services provided by Oak Park Apartments. The leasing agent that I worked with Taijuan Williams was very efficient and detailed-oriented. The communication between the leasing office and I was great during the process of signing the lease. I also appreciate the prompt follow up with maintenance. I would definitely recommend this company!

                  I recently went to Oak Park Apartments looking for an apartment for this summer/next year. The young woman who took me out knew NOTHING about the apartments. She took me to ones she had never entered, took us to the wrong apartments and was confused why her key wasn't working (because we were entering a stranger's apartment!), and didn't know any information about the apartments. My questions were simple: where does the trash go? what is the parking policy? I asked her to call me back if the apartment I wanted was taken, and went to lunch. I called her afterwards to say I was coming over to pay my holding fee and she said it was never actually available, and she made a mistake taking me there. No remorse, no, "I'm sorry."

                    This management is horrible! I say again they are horrible! Spend your money else where! They do not care about their tenants! They only want your money! Apartments are so not worth the price!

                      I lived in an oakpark/greenplan apt for 5 years and moved a year ago. They were nice at first until i was laid off my job and had to be late o rent a few times. I always managed to come up with my rent and late fees just a little later. They were inconsiderate and sneaky and treated me less than a person because i had an issue. I moved eventually because i didnt feel like a person and that they cared about anything but their money even though i had never been late before and i was an excellent tenent inspite of things going on in the building. People had dogs and hung in the basements and i even saw some teenagers smoking pot on the back porch. Yes the building was nice but not yhe management when you have any issues. They could be lenient knowung that they own most of the propeety in oakpark and some in chicago.

                        I have been living in an Oak Park Apartment's building for some time and have always been surprised at the quick response and effort to ensure all tenants are satisfied. Recently, my refridgerator was malfunctioning - still working but not holding a tempurature - I called in the morning and by mid afternoon it was replaced. I have always been greeted on phone calls with an individual who is eager to help in any way possible. Some of the buildings are old, but the are quiet, clean and safe. I would highly recommend Oak Park Apartments.

                          My husband and I moved here from a different state without seeing our actual unit. My mom checked it out and sent pictures, so that wasn't a huge issue. I'm originally from Chicago and I love Oak Park, so needless to say we were excited. I stayed on Lombard ave. I had really nosey neighbors, I caught a lady listening by my door when I first got there. Another lady tried to argue with me over my parking spot. Everything was better after being there a few weeks though. Neighbors would even bring my packages in so no one could steal them. The apartment was a little smaller than what we were use to( 1 bedroom); however, I loved the hardwood floors and renovated kitchen. I had an assigned parking spot which I loved and my building was always quiet and well kept. I was also able to have my dog there. The maintenance staff took a week to make little repairs when we first got there, but after talking to the manager they responded quickly. I felt safe and the complex was close to everything. The windows and a/c were a little dated, but you get what… See More>

                            The positive reviews of Oak Park Apartments.com a/k/a Green Plan are obviously paid placements. My experience with them was very negative. Right out of the gate they try to get $300 from you to "hold" the apartment. Don't give them anything except security deposit and rent. They are very willing to scam you if you're not careful. Also, they will quickly try to rent you a place on Austin Blvd. which borders the least safe ------ in the city of Chicago. Be careful.

                              I currently live in an apartment managed by Greenplan Management (aka OakParkApartments.com) and have been here for about 18 months. So far, my experience has been overwhelming positive! My apartment has great vintage characteristics as well as a few modern upgrades including new windows, new lighting and plumbing fixtures, and an updated kitchen and bathroom. The leasing staff was great too! The guy who helped me find an apartment was professional, patient, and really listened to what I was looking for--so it was fairly quick and painless...I think his name was Peter. The whole process was very customer friendly! The maintenance staff is by far the best thing about the management. They are responsive, courteous, and consistent. I was actually prompted to write this review after they did such a good job removing snow from the walkways this winter. I park in a private parking lot and after a snow storm they actually cut a path to my car door!! Our sidewalks are always clear before the rest of the block! Overall, its a great place to call home and the management team is great!

                                My experience with Oak park Apartments has been overwhelmingly pleasant! I love my apartment and I love the area! From the beginning, the leasing staff was very helpful. I toured a lot or apartments before finally choosing the one that fit ME best. Each apartment that I toured was clean and overall, very nice. Needless to say, it was a difficult decision. The management company is great and are quick to respond to any issues I may have, which recently have been a broken fan, a faulty fire detector, and a hissing radiator. Each problem was taken care of promptly and professionally. I have been living in my apartment for about five months now and it has been great! I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking for a pleasant place to live!!!

                                  When I first came across Oak Park Apartments, i thought i'd found a great deal, and great management company - until i actually went into the office to apply for an apartment. Like my mother has always told me "dont expect a company's reputation to change after you sign an apartment, when they are rude to you when searching for an apt". well needless to say, i didnt listen. From jump street, the staff at OPA - Green Plan management act like you are doing them a favor by inquiring about their mostly overpriced units. they own a number of buildings in oak park and see themselves as being premium units (especially at North Taylor Ave, the building i live in). They are short tempered and tend to side with each other instead of offering exceptional, or even just standard, customer service to make you want to live in one of their properties. Despite their rushed application process, i signed a lease with them. then the drama began. because of extenuating circumstances i needed to push my move-in date by 2weeks. i called and confirmed with the manager (female) who checked with the owners. at this time, she let me know all… See More>

The management was awesome to work with; they were completely transparent and did their best for me. Overall, great place to live!

                                        Excellent Apartment

                                        My boyfriend and I moved into the property on the corner of Lake Street and Elmwood (126 N. Elmwood) and we are very pleased with the quality of the building. The walls are thick and I think made of concrete, (hanging shelves was difficult) so we never hear our neighbors from our apartment. The apartment has 14ish windows and is very sunny year-round. No central air in summer, so a window unit is needed for A/C. Every room has a fan, and for an older building it is very well maintained. The parking is terrible, but that's not the building's fault, that's just a reality of living in Oak Park. The management has always been helpful and polite to us, and they often have maintenance staff at the building fixing things and working on landscaping. The front door to the building had a broken window, and it was only like that for 2 days. They were very prompt about fixing it. We've had virtually no bugs in our apartment ever (just a couple spiders and ladybugs.) Other than the parking, my only complaints would be laundry and water. Water is included, but the temperature is a bit inconsistent. Usually I… See More>

                                              Studio was located at 165 S Oak Park Ave and I loved it. The location is unbeatable and the apartment wasn't bad at all. I didn't have a car but there is off street parking in back(I think it's a fee). Leasing Department was normal and nice....I even saw them around town some times!!! The only drawback is you have to pay all utilities.

                                                I was tricked into moving into their beautiful Cuyler ave building. I regret it to this day. Their ad said gas was included but wasn't. Toilet was dirty when I moved in. The only way you can contact the office is answering machine or email. some power outlets were unusable, plug in something and the entire apt would lose power. So plugging in a stereo or microwaving while watching TV is a no-no. I had to use space heaters all winter, but i would wake up at 2am to no heat and no electricity because the space heater reset the circuit breaker in the basement. So then I had to run extension cords from the working outlets to stay warm. After complaining about the heat the office finally called me and said they weren't responsible for keeping the apt above 66 degrees. The neighborhood: no parking, panhandlers, gunshots and stolen mail. I couldnt get out soon enough. worse apt experience ever.
