Teel Realty and its staff (management & maintenance) is probably the closest thing you will get to tenement-style, slum lord management in all of Brookline. Although the exterior of the 120 Babcock Street complex seems livable, the interior is a different story. For example, the "live-in" super rents apartments to his family members (who live 4 people to a 1-person apartment), extorts money for simple fix-it jobs, and uses duct tape to do most repairs around the apartments. The front door lock has been broken for nearly a year, and the complex was just cited for waste management infringements. There is a bug-problem. The heating is loud enough to wake you up all winter, and most importantly, management is non-responsive at best and duplicitous at worst. I would write more, but there is not enough room. The best thing I can say is that the relatively large apartments are fairly cheap.
