Take tons of pictures and video upon move and move out. They will charge you fees for everything that you cleaned. Yet when you move in changes are the place wasn't even clean to begin with.

Once again Barr maintenance was quick to respond and came with heat guns to thaw out my pipes and fixed the damage that had happen to my neighbors apartment because he turned his heat off.

I've lived here for about 4 years. Rent has only gone up once. My 1 bedroom is pretty spacious, with a balcony. Not much of a view, though. Appliances are a little dated, but functional. Seems like a safe place, never had any issues.

I rented off campus and I really enjoyed my apartment actually. The windows and doors needed to be replaced but other than that I didn't have too many issues. I do have to say though, I never met my landlord, I never bothered calling them, I just went to the office and talked to the maintenance people directly and politely and they were usually out there the next day and did whatever I asked. But like I said, I wasn't on campus, I was on the outer edge of Champaign and never talked to my landlord, so maybe that's why I had a better experience.

I kept wanting to tell this landlord that even though we are students, we are still people! I rented from Barr for 3 years while in college. There were times when I had no hot water for days on end, despite endless calls to get it fixed. The staff in the office are absolutely horribly rude. They act like it's such a huge pain for them to serve you when you come into their office. They do have a lot of nice properties, but be aware of what you're getting into. Don't expect ANY service or kindness.

PROS: Some nice properties.
CONS: Horrible service, inattentive maintenance, mean staff

When my friend needed help and call them, they kept her waiting but never sent anybody. That's what happened when my friend was locked inside the apartment as the lock did not work. When moved out, they were charged 100 dollars. Thus I don't recommend them when you look for an apartment. Be sure to check everything is working well or else you may not get any help from them.

People in this company don't really care about their tenants, unless you are a beauty or something. When I had contract with this landlard, the building I lived was actually very nice (new and less then $300 per person for a 4 bed/4 bathroom apt and had a washer and dryer in each unit). I personally didn't have a problem with the building but I had a huge problem with the landlord's attitude. Apparently, in the same building there were also a lot of unsatified tenants. Other tenants destroyed the public area very often. One time I saw a broken egg on the floor and the other time I saw a knife on the wall. And sometimes people just went ahead to destroy the walls (made big holes on the wall). Very strange.

One of Barr Real Estate's businesses is the business of apartment rentals. In my experience with Barr, there is a wide selection of available apartments at a wide variety of prices.

However, Barr seems unreceptive to problems such as lack of hot water, toilets overrunning, lack of heat, etc. This may be a result of Barr taking on too many buildings for not enough staff, but overall I think Barr does not provide its tenants the attention they deserve by paying their rent.

The staff at Barr are also very hit or miss. Some are extremely helpful and friendly, while others are rude and make it seem like they are doing you a favor by doing their job.

The variety of places and prices is great, but they leave something to be desired in customer satisfaction.

They have a lot of apt with a cheap price and this is why they can continue to survive. A typical large landlord who doesn't have much patience with their clients. Especially most of the clients are powerless students. Some of their tenants would destroy the public area regularly to show their attitudes against the landlord.
