I want to move away from this place as soon as possible. It is falling apart and landpeople have been unresponsive to multiple requests to repair things, and I am tired of it. Cheap rent price is not worth an apt that may fall down, poison… See More

If you don't have expectations for prompt, courteous, professional treatment, then these two queens are just right. If you are looking for an apartment and want to waste your time filling out an application with a subsequent runarround, then by all means, you've come to the… See More

I just saw all the people writing to say that Bessette was writing their own reviews, and had to write a review. I had an excellent experience at 224 Massachusetts Ave. I lived there from 1999-2001 and then again 2003-2004. Both times I felt that the… See More

It's obvious they ARE rating themselves, no tenant is going to bother referring you to their websites as they do in their wonderful reviews of THEMSELVES below. Maybe if they spent more time talking with owners about asking for reasonable rents, they'd have less time to… See More

I lived here a while ago and had a great apartment. The owners put all new appliances in for me prior to my moving in, My neighbors were quiet. It was a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants, loved the movie theatre and little shops.

Great "neighborhood" realtor. Loretta Bessette grew up in Arlington and knows everyone. She found me a great place, with reasonable rent and good neighbors. Is on top of fixing problems, but is also very flexible and laid back.
