Resident 2020 - 2022

Do not move into this apartment building. The management is terrible. On numerous occasions, they have been rude and degrading to myself and other tenants. If you try to stand up for yourself in anyway, the landlord will retaliate against you. I have also had issues with appliances in the apartment breaking and the managing staff claiming they've sent someone to fix it and coming home to the appliance not being fixed. Overall, I would really recommend living somewhere else.

    I have lived at 101 Monmouth street for the past 2 years. I have had multiple inappropriate interactions with management, including shouting and swearing at myself or my roommates. I would not recommend this place to anyone - especially a single female. The management will not respect you and will go so far as to belittle and intimidate you.

      We liked living at 101 Monmouth until we had to start dealing with management. They are extreamly unprofessional and rude. They never wear masks and they are always lounging on their phones or watching tv. The maintenance never fixes anything, and the doorman is not there half the time. The lifeguard is a creepy old man who makes you read riddles and forces you to read stories he prints and walks around with. The building charges for every little thing. A guest parking pass is $20 for a night, and parking in the garage is $275. The pool is unusable in the summer with kids running around all the time and the walls are so thin. The only good thing is that the building is kept clean.

        Most of the reviews below have come from a negative place, don't listen. This apartment complex is clearly next to two T-lines and on the boarder of Boston and Brookline, so don't expect peace and quiet. Know what you sign up for. As for the insulation, the building in the process of getting brand new windows, 149 units take time and it's called wear-and-tear. Doormen are around practically 24/7 and you have a LARGE bedroom, a LARGE living room and generous amount of space for the money you pay and the area code you live in. As for an elevator smell? Again, there are 149 units with people who like different foods, and with dogs who they might not pick up after, this is management not a babysitting job. They are constantly cleaning the building every. single. morning. Seems like the negative comments come from people who need to live in a high rise with half the amount of sq footage or should sign up to buy a home already? As for the constant construction? It's called living in the city and natural turnover sweetie. I love where I live, management is fantastic and always happy to help you if… See More>

          There was a mistake in the listing, it said there was a balcony when there was none but still the realtor wouldn't negotiate the cost with me. None of the staff was wearing face masks. Very disappointed in the mistake in the listing.

            I am a healthcare worker. None of the staff or contractors wear masks!! I fear for the safety of my family. The other complaint I have is the loud train next to the building. I didnt realize that the windows were not soundproof.

              Super disappointed living here. Not what I expected for the money. The building is poorly insulated and loud. I hear my upstairs and next door neighbors. Also the halls and elevators always smell like bad food. I've come home after work and the doorman is never there to help me pick up my packages and if he is there, he's usually watching TV. Yes, the doormen have a TV to watch! Again, not really a great place for the money. My other concern is the attitude of the staff and landlord. If you complain you will be retaliated against and your rent will get jacked! The poo is another concern. The lifeguard is an old pervert who wont leave me or my friends alone and last year we found that there weren't enough chairs and the tables are all old and crappy. I had high hopes for this place based on prior reviews and the location.

                Not a luxury building. Far from it. The building is under constant construction. It's really loud and I'm not able to sleep when I get home in the morning from work as a healthcare professional. There's also zero insulation. You hear all the street noise and my place is drafty and cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

                  Please be very careful if you are a female. This building is not secure and there have been incidents of inappropriate behaviour from the staff! Also be prepared for a lot of construction and outside workers roaming the building. Again, very dangerous if you are female. You should also understand that rent will go up every year along with parking. This is standard but you wont see much for your increase. The grounds especially the pool area are worn out and old. The windows are not insulated and the walls are thin. The plusses are the location! I love being close to downtown and I the T is a block away. I also enjoy that my packages can get delivered during the day when I'm at work!

                      Very desirable location. My family is very happy and well taken care of. Mario is awesome and is always willing to hear you out. Star Market is right around the corner over in Fenway. Everything is perfect I would live there again!

                        I've lived in 101 Monmouth St for almost a year and I'm surprised the ratings are so low. The apartment is stunning, the maintenance staff comes within 24 business hours in the rare event you have an issue, the facilities are well kept. I'd highly recommend this to a friend.

                          I live in this building three years. Great location. quiet place. with a very beautiful team of employees. Cleaning note 10. or it looks like a rental place but rather a luxury hotel so clean and cared for. the manager very polite and always helpful. mario a people of love. I love living here. the only complaint I have is the resident of apartment # 303 a person nothing friendly. a person very rude. all people living in the building know it. one person's trash....

                            Location is great, but doorman is never there and never helps with heavy luggage,. I was woken up at 2am while sleeping that there was a complaint from downstairs that I was having a party (I was sleeping!), and my car was towed away because I could not pay the parking fee to dorrman (of courese, he is never there, how am I supposed to pay?). Fire alarms go up too often, but the most disappointing part is that Allen Associate Properties ignores your emails and phone calls and try to take advantage of you, especially if you are international. Don't sign any papers until the very last minute. Again, location is great, but you need to be ready for lots of troubles and disputes.

                              The manager, Mario, is so rude. Nothing ever gets fixed and it is a pain in the --- to track him down to get something fixed. The maintenance crew is not trained at all and have no clue what they're doing- things only get fixed half way (ex: the faucet in our kitchen was literally running like it was on, we finally get one of the illegal immigrants to come fix it and now the only time the faucet is truly off is if you twist the knob in the exact perfect way to get it off). There is always at least two washers and dryers broken in the laundry room and the rest smell like mold. There are clear no dogs sign and there are several LARGE dogs that reside in the building. As long as you give Mario a few extra dollars on the side he'll do whatever you want. The lifeguard is a homeless pervert who will bring you samples of his 'writings' and 'musings' and force you to take them even after you say no. Do not let your young daughters around him...you can see him undressing all women with his eyes. Overall I would not recommend… See More>

                                This place is bad. The walls are thin , the building is old and the rents do not justify the apartments. There is little to no insulation. The repairs made to the building are all shoddy. The landlord Doug Allen is a crook who raises rents as a way of keeping tenants from complaining. This building is a revolving door for asian families staying 1 to 2 years. Beware! There were also stories of a sexual assault in the building by the super. Also there are quite a few illegals working in the building.

                                      Beware before moving in!! The landlord is addicted to crack and has no problems having the dealers show up to deliver his fix! The Brookline Police need to wake up!! This building is completely unsafe. I have been harrassed by someone who lives here.He has sexually harressed other tenants and the landlord knows about these incidents but doesnt care. There is little to no security in the building. With dealers walking in and out of the side door, its unsettling!

                                        Love it here

                                        Just wanted to say that I love living in this building. The location to the city and the hospitals is fantastic. The building itself is solid. I came from a brownstone with thin walls and ceilings and only cold water most of the time....so I guess I am easy to please. But I hardly ever hear my neighbors in this building (only if they are hammering or drilling or drop something very heavy) and I always have hot water. I love the garage parking and the parking spots available to guests. The staff are always so nice and helpful. They go out of their way to help lift things or help with questions. And when I report that something is wrong in my apartment, they fix it that day. Only thing that takes getting used to is the T going by every couple minutes. I like to sleep with a sound machine. I put on the white noise or rain and that blocks out all the T noise.

                                          I am an older resident and have found the staff incredibly skilled, pleasant and helpful. Of course the location is wonderful. Friends who visit all remark on the atmosphere and convenience as well as the above-mentioned staff (several are considering moving here). The building itself is of a period that is somewhat lacking in "charm," but with a little work the apartments can be made very attractive. I'm glad I found the 101.

                                              It seems like the "haters" are the most motivated to write a review here, so I thought I would chime in to even it out a bit. I really like this apartment and have been here with my wife for 2 years. We are in a large 1 bedroom with a great view. Overall I think the complex is nice and well maintained. The doormen are fine for me, I am happy to have doormen at all, and they collect all my package deliveries. When we need repairs in our apartment, they are usually done the same day. There is a parking complex right next door, so parking is not an issue, except for the expense. For me, the walls are a bit thin. But the best thing about this complex is the location: 1 block from C and D green line, 1 block from grocery stores, restaurants, bars, overall nice atmosphere.

                                                The building is totally rundown!! There is zero insulation. There are mice on all of the floors. Some units have cockroaches as well. The maintenance in the building is aweful. Nobody speaks english. The walls are super thin and you can hear your neighbors. In the Summer time, people walk off the street and use the pool. The doormen also will rent out spots for $20.00 for the Red Sox games. So there is no parking during baseball season. The weekend help sit on their cell phones all day long. Nobody helps to open the door or help you with your bags. Also, the building is filled with barking dogs. If you want sleep, forget it!!

There is shopping close by. The apartments are clean and in good condition and the staff is always available if you need anything fixed. We would have stayed but I finished my graduate program. A good place to live.
