Resident 2023

They interrupted a college student's exam by entering room

Overall, it was good until the second month of rent. However, I do not think some of Steven Brown's apartment personnel respect the lives of the residents. They open the door without permission, even during college students' online exams. When I moved in here, the… See More>

Steve Brown Apartments has been a fantastic location to rent from, and I would highly advise a friend to rent from them. For the past two years, I've been living in a studio apartment at the Henry Gilman Apartments, and I strongly recommend it due… See More>

    This place is not nice and their service is lackluster to say the least. AC unit and toilet have both broken during my stay. I had a drip in my ceiling that causes the ceiling to literally sag in the corner and nothing was done… See More>

                    I'm sorry you had a negative experience at Henry Gilman. Steve Brown Apartments (the owner) has been in business for 35 years. We serve thousands of residents each year and we strive to create the best possible housing experience for each one. It's always unfortunate when there's a disconnect. I would like to clarify a few points that deal with safety and legal issues: 1. Our elevators adhere to the WI state code which requires an annual inspection and a permit to operate, and that all injuries or accidents (there have been none) are reported. 2. We strictly adhere to the lease agreement which require 24-hour's notice prior to entering a resident's apartment. We have never received a complaint from any official agency re. this matter. 3. We have never had a resident tell us there are cockroaches in their apartment and we have not received any notices from the city inspectors or health department. 4. The only time we get involved in the relationship between a resident and MGE, and assess a fee, is when a resident doesn't set up or turn off utilities on their own and MGE directly bills us for their usage. Additionally, in June of 2016 we finished a complete remodel of the first floor community room and fitness center at Henry Gilman. We reinvest millions of dollars into our properties every year.

                        This place is an absolute --------. The elevators don't work, everything is always covered in garbage or throw-up. People steal your mail.
