    I’m living a nightmare

    This is the worst apartment ever. I live in the chateau gey apartment and it always smells like smoke and creepy men always walking around. Don’t even get me started on the leasing agent lady in the building. She is constantly screaming on the phone and does not care about you at all. If you ask her to do anything she will get offended and shut your request down. Don’t even think about living here.

      Run from even thinking of renting here. We were fooled by reviews and rented a year here. Mold spores, leaking ceilings, insane utility and electric bills near $450 a month. The new management that took over - ---- was extremely unprofessional and had a horrible work ethic. The former manager ------ did a good job with what she could work with. We got out as soon as we could and hope we can help the next person avoid getting into what we did. There are so many other better places in Pittsburgh.

        when you sign lease one thing management won't tell you that in the winter electric bills will kill you. There is an electric heater and tenants have to pay for it. Management always blames Duquesne light but they never tell the main reason. most of the people like me come here and stay a year then go back.

          I lived in this apartment for 4 years and I have a lot of problems, this building is really old and the maintenance issue is going on all the time. You should not be surprised if you do not have water when you take a shower and they do not let you know about it. Everything is running with electricity and during the winter I paid almost $500 and, my apartment was still cold. They do not have a playground area and they do not even have enough parking lot for the tenants, if you want to park at the garage, you need to pay extra money. Someone hit my parked car at the parking lot, the building has a camera, but it is useless during the night, there is no light at the parking lot. If you need anything to be fixed, they are putting you in a work order, you will see maintenance guy after a couple of days. instead of replacing a simple garbage disposal, they are trying to fix it again and again. In 4 years they did not do any updates for the building.

            I recently moved in here and at first I was skeptical but after talking to Justin my agent I realized that this was the right place for me. It was my first time moving and the staff especially Justin made my move much easier

              Dave and Ron went above and beyond in providing some general repairs to my apartment. They were efficient, kind, knowledgeable, and truly cared. The office staff have also been helpful and accommodating in addressing my needs since I moved in this month. Many thanks!

                who wants to pay above $400 electric bills every months on top of $1000 rent and wear sweaters at home all the time and feel cold not feel comfortable even when thermostat says 72?? Very old building no insulation, everything runs on electric including heat which consume so much electricity to warm up the house. Water and sewer bill also high. Only thing like about this apartment is apartment itself, it has big balcony and living room. In winter it's a nightmare to stay here either you have to stay in 65 degree which u will feel like freezing or if u wanna warm up the house you have to increase temperature 75-80 and pay electric bills close to $700 months.

                  I went in for a showing today just to see what the apartments were like! There were three women and when I showed up they were pretty much arguing about who was going to show me the apartment! Strike one! Then I get to the elevator and she is like does it work? Strike two. Get up stairs to the apartment and she is like show yourself. Strike three. Then the questions I had for she could not answer. Strike four. Then she was supposed to take me to the next location and pretty much blew it off as if she didn't want to go. Strike five. And her attitude...WAS HORRIBLE!!!! Strike six. It didn't matter what this apartment looked like, she was just horrible and to have such an attitude for a potential resident was a turn off in itself. The apartment was spacious but old and I don't write reviews but today...this sucked!

                    I looked at an apartment over the weekend and was shown an apartment that was not advertised, the place was dirty, not ready and had marks all over the walls. When we walked through the building the lower level near the garage had puddles, water leaks and mud marks through out. The girl showing me was clearly trying to "up speak" and avoid the unsightly conditions when I asked her about the mentioned issues. The garage had mold and drips coming off the ceiling leaving marks all over cars. I noticed the back door near garage was ajar for anyone to enter. Not only did I have an uncomfortable/unprofessional experience with my agent I just felt uncomfortable as a whole in this "immaculate" building. Now that I read others experiences mixed with mine I will not rent from these people.

                          WORST MANAGEMENT COMPANY AND BUILDING EVER- Not only is the building in terrible condition, our leasing agent flat out lied to us before we moved in saying we would have all new bathroom vanities and a new dishwasher. Those things were never put in, and when I called to ask about it, Lobos told me that I rented the apartment 'as is.' We had ants throughout the apartment, and by throughout I mean kitchen, BOTH bathrooms, BOTH bedrooms, living room, and hallways. I called and told Lobos, they did not send an exterminator, they sent a maintenance man who did nothing to fix the problem. They even suggested to make sure we were not leaving food out. Last time I checked we weren't leaving food in the BATHROOMS. We had clogged drains that they never fixed. We had a leaky shower the entire time we were there, and they came to "fix" it and told us they would be back. When I called a few weeks later, Lobos told me that the issue was "resolved" and now they would have to open another order to fix it (it's still not been fixed). I was not even given a lease to… See More>

                              Liking my apartment so far. Feel great about the fact the company added security cameras through out the premises, makes me feel safe. Maintenance was very helpful with fixing little things here and there through out my move in process.

                                I currently live in the chateaugay apartments on Hoodridge Dr. in Castle Shannon, Lobos Mgmt is the absolute worst company to rent from, their workers are the most miserable and rude people you will ever encounter. The building has mold in it, floor tiles in the lower level are lifting up from the utter grossness that lies beneath, you are more than likely guaranteed to find a water leak somewhere in the building. They decided in the last year or two to start remodeling the units as people move out, which is nice, but you can polish a turd all you want, bottom line is its still a turd. The parking is a joke, if you get home after 8 in the evening be prepared to park on the street. Don't waste your time going to the office, the ----- that works there hates her job and her life and can -------------- about what you need, or she's too busy -----------------------------------. Speaking of maintenance, they have no clue how to fix anything, they do a half --- job, say they need to get a part and never come back. My advice would be to… See More>

                                  Love my apartment

                                  There are not many places in the South Hills that are as nice as my apartment. I love the South Hills feel and convenience. My apartment also has huge closets. If you're a girl like me you need the space. I spent a month looking at many run down places and came across the Chateaugay. I love the hardwood bamboo hardwood floors, expansive balconies and also my kitchen!! The kitchen is great with mosaic tiles and granite. My friends always compliment how adorable and comfortable my apartment is. Like any building, there are always little things that need to be done but that comes with the territory of renting. The few items I needed fixed were turned around quickly. All in all my experience here has been nothing short of pleasant!

                                    Horrible!

                                    I was actually warned not to rent from Lobos Management, I chose not to heed to warnings and my 2 year old and I have paid for it ever since. AV broke for 7 WEEKS! They finally fixed it only when I took off work to babysit the maintenance men in my apartment to make sure that they did not leave until it was fixed. The pipes leak all the time, which sets of the fire alarm! In the last 11 months, it went off three times that I am aware of. People don't even evacuate any more because of all the false alarms. They put hardwood floors in every unit, looks so nice, but then you hear every single step that your neighbor upstairs takes regardless of time of day. Also, carpet really helps to muffle sound, so without it you hear conversations, their TV, even more intimate moments that should not be shared with neighbors. Please don't make the same mistake I did. Avoid this place.

                                      Parking is a joke! The "nice" building manager gave out parking passes a couple months ago to control the parking situation. There are cars still in the lot without passes and NOTHING is done about it! The front door has lock issues, the side door doesn't shut so it's always propped opened and the lower level garage door has been broken for MONTHS so it's always open! Not safe at all! There is a mold issue on every floor due to all the water damage from the leaky pipes, they don't clean up the water or the mold, they paint over it!!! There is no emergency lighting in the cave of a hallway or the stairwell! The vents haven't been cleaned in decades & your lungs and health are at risk due to the lack of windows or ventilation. The building manager is soooo rude! She'll send out notifications with times for you to be in the lobby to pick things up and notes that her time is extremely valuable & won't go past the time listed, only to NOT show up at all the first day & 2 hours late the next! Prepare to be completely disrespected! Once upon… See More>

                                        OBVIOUSLY THIS PLACE DOES NOT HAVE 1 SINGLE GOOD REVIEW..THERE ARE NUMEROUS WEBSITES DEDICATED TO INFORMINF PEOPLE OF THIS DISASTER. THESE PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY A BUNCH OF IDIOTS. -----, WHO IS THE PROPERTY MANAGER IS A SPAZ. I SPENT A MONTH LITERALLY CALLING HER EVERY SINGLE TO TO RESOLVE ONE SIMPLE MATTER, YET SHE HAD ISSUES ANSWERING HER PHONE WHICH BY THE WAY WAS SITTING ON HER DESK RIGHT NEXT TO HER ONCE I WALKED INTO HER OFFICE. THE GIRLS WHO WORK IN THE RENTAL OFFICES ARE NOTHING BETTER..IT WAS BASICALLY LIKE SPEAKING TO A WALL..VERY UNFORTUNATE PEOPLE. I GUESS YOU DON'T NEED ANY MORE QUALIFICATIONS THAT TO BE RUDE, ------ AND UNEDUCATED TO WORK FOR LOBOS MANAGEMENT. THEY DID A GOOD JOB AT HIRING THOSE PEOPLE- ATLEAST THEY WERE SUCCUSSFUL IN THAT. THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN, IT IS A SHAME THAT PEOPLE SUCH AS THIS EXIST. PATHETIC.

                                          This apartment building was beautiful when I first came to Pittsburgh to look for an apartment. After searching for so long in a limited time, Chateaugay was the best choice (what it seemed like at that time). The person that showed me the apartments said it has a fitness center and a pool. NO WAY! there is no sign of a pool nor a gym. Later I found out that the person quit. Apartment itself is pretty nice. However in the recent months I have dealt with so much *** from LOBOSMANAGEMENT. First of, they did not give me a copy of my lease when I requested several times. The staff was so rude and you have a hard time getting something done. Everytime you put a maintenance request, do not expect to get it fix for a week or two. My bathroom ceiling is constantly dripping with brown water from the apartment above, they have "fix" it several times, yet brown water still gets on my bathroom. The whole building has pipe issues, it constantly leaks and it goes down to every floor. They never pay the water bill on time, if you wake up really early and go… See More>

                                            I am very happy with my choice to live here. I heard horror stories before I moved here but decided to move here anyways and could not be more happy. I have had several problems when I first moved in and the maintenance was at my apartment in a timely manor to fix everything. The lady who does the leasing Tara has been friendly and helpful during my lease signing and with the minor issues I had. The apartment is very large and beautiful. I get a lot of complements on my apartment when friends and family come by. I would and have recommend living here to other people.

                                              I lived here for exactly 2 years. Finally, got out of here last month. What ever you've read and heard about the "Lobos Management" or the "Sobols" are all absolutely 100% correct. They are the so called the "slumlord" of rentals. All you have to do is google "lobos management review" and you can read (if you haven't done so already) all the horrible stories/experience from the past and present tenants. I don't have enough words to express how I felt and how I was treated as a tenant during my 2 years of living in this apartment. PLEASE READ ALL THE REVIEWS and BBB ratings for "LOBOS" before you even think about the renting from this management. also check this site and also on facebook: www.lobosmangementsucks.com

                                                This place is a terrible. Lobos Management clearly doesn't care to take care of its properties, which is a shame because this really could be a nice building. There is so much water damage throughout the whole place. I constantly have ceiling leaks from the apartment above and apparently the apartment below has the same issues because they ask me all the time if I've spilled anything because their ceiling leaks. Our kitchen sink has backed up several times and I must call every couple of hours to see if they even plan to sent anyone. Last time it took 2 days before anyone even showed up, which meant two days of no running water in my kitchen or adjacent bathroom. They are horrible and removing the snow in the winter. So many times other tenants have gotten their cars stuck in the snow. When you call Lobos for help, they simply blow you off. Some of the employees truly seem sympathic but I think its only because they know they work for a crappy company. Whatever you do, do not rent from Lobos, no matter how nice the apartments may seem.

                                                  This place is a horrible place to live. Lobos Management is extremely unprofessional and staffed with many unfriendly employees. The building looks pretty nice from the outside, but the second you step foot thru the front door it's a disaster zone. The building is not well kept, other renters are disrespectful to the property. Parking is treacherous especially in the winter. My car was stuck in the parking lot twice because they did not plow. All of the lights are burned out in the parking lot and have been for months.
