The staff is pathetic. They lack a basic sense of empathy and talking. My heat is down for some reason and instead of cooperating and helping us, they had an attitude screaming at call saying you are bothering me by calling twice. Instead, my husbandSee More >

This company is by far the worst company I have ever dealt with. Cheryl at the main office is incredibly rude, difficult to work with, doesn't respond to voicemail or email and will straight up lie to you. I have never written a review likeSee More >

Kamin Realty showed a profound lack of professionalism. Would take several days to respond to e-mails, if they chose to respond at all. I had to make several phone calls to ever get a response from a Kamin representative who was not helpful or graciousSee More >

My experience with Kamin Realty has been just as brief as it was unpleasant. I'm not one to want to complain to others, but I don't want anyone else to go through the same experience. (or worse). I haven't rented from Kamin Realty but afterSee More >

I read the poor reviews for Kamin, but decided to reserve my judgement of their places until I saw for myself. I must say that after my experience today, I'm thinking that the reviews here are far from hyperbolic. I was scheduled toSee More >

Living in a Kamin property has been the worst rental experience I have ever had. The staff is unresponsive to issues, maintenance will cover up problem and put them off so not to actually repair them and they do not respect the tenants. See More >

490 S. Highland is an excellent location, and we are snug in our adorable studio. Hardwood floors, cornice board, glass knobs on the doors--all the details add to the charm, and the layout is very clever. We can hear the church bells fromSee More >
