Having lived in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti for the past 7 years, I can say with high certainty that Flo-Mar is the best management company in the area. They have a very strict vetting process and lease, which wasn't a problem for either myself or my roommates. They have an online rent payment and maintenance request system which makes paying rent or making requests effortless. Our unit was very spacious, well-maintained within the normal wear and tear of a rental unit. It's not always quiet due to neighbors, but that varies by rental location and it would be petty to blame Flo-Mar for noisy college students nearby. The unit could have been cleaner at move-in, especially considering they include a cleaning fee (with the potential to have it refunded upon satisfactorily cleaning at move-out) in the application and deposit process. The office staff is great, we love every interaction we have with them. Renee is the most personable property managers I have ever met, and would consider returning just for her. The maintenance crew is expedient and respectful, any issues were taken care of immediately without issue on our part. We had a rear parking lot and never experienced issues with a lack of spaces though we have had instances of theft in unlocked vehicles. Repairing the fence around the parking lot would go a long way to preventing future attempted thefts as many use our parking lot as a thoroughfare from one street to another. The rental unit is in a great location, nearby bus stops, restaurants, bars, and EMU. If my roommates weren't leaving I wouldn't hesitate to stay longer. Don't let the negative reviews sway you on Flo-Mar, as they're kind of absurd: The lease is common-sense (no guns, smoking, growing weed, etc.) and shouldn't be a problem for anybody to follow. If you don't renew your lease, then others will view your apartment, albeit groups of students probably don't target particular apartments on the vindictive whim of Flo-Mar. Maybe clean it up to make it look more attractive to entice others into signing right away. Other than that, they're easy to get along with and just ask that you pay rent on time. That's the whole point, right?
