Wow... avoid at all costs. Horrible experience. Spoke to my wife and I as if we were children. Attitude, rudeness and dripping with disdain. Cares not for you, merely the money you can provide them. After the initial communications, I

Absolutely terrible company. They made us tour the apartment with another group - even though there was only one place available. The office is so unorganized. I had to make multiple phone calls just to figure out if a property was

Forest Ridge apartments on the West Side of Bloomington are managed by this company--the company is great and their apartments are terrific.\n\nI live in a 1 bedroom apartment, and it is most definitely the best apartment and location to live in Bloomington. The rent is reasonable--especially when looking at the location and how nice the apartments are. \n\n

We have rented from Hallmark for the past year, and have had a few maintenance issues, which have always been addressed promptly and efficiently. Rachel is in charge of maintenance requests, and she is always on top of things and is a pleasure to work with. As with any rental company, there will be small annoyances like application fees and seemingly exhorbitant security deposits, but Hallmark is willing to work with their tenants respectfully, and even waived an application fee for us when circumstances deemed it fair to do so. In short, they run a tight ship and make sure things are taken care of, and are also willing to listen to their tenants and act accordingly. \r\n\r\nAs a side note, the particular property where we rent (one of many managed by Hallmark) is tucked away from the heart of Bloomington, almost in Ellettsville. Not only is the property much more spacious than anything in town for similar or higher price ranges, it's also a family-friendly neighborhood that is protected from the cramped and noisy atmosphere of the rest of Bloomington. I've rented elsewhere before, and this is certainly an upgrade.

I've rented from Hallmark for 3 years and have never had any issues. The few maintenance things I had were taken care of really fast and the people at the office are always very nice. I would recommend my apartment complex and renting from Hallmark in general to anyone. I've rented elsewhere and have had some pretty horrible landlords but so far Hallmark has been great.

I would have preferred to give this company no stars, but unfortunately that was not a viable option. I lived in an apartment with this company while in college and had the worst and most manupulative experience! \r\n\r\nAll negative stories that you hear about rental companies were true with Hallmark. They lied on the walk-out after I moved out, they charged me crazy late fees for things that did not exist. Then when I would call to prove that they were wrong with documentation from our walk-through, they would charge me even more fees for ""taking up their time""! No one would take responsibility for the mistakes, and then they would simply pass me off to their legal team. I believe that considering they have an in-house legal team right in their office that should say enough about the company. They are out to get the students! They are scam artists and unfortunately they are taking advantage of young emerging adults within this town. All of my neighbors in my complex agree that Hallmark is the worst rental company we had ever encountered.\r\n\r\nI'm assuming that most of the other reviews are a sham of some kind, because ever story I have ever heard dealing with this company has been negative. In my four years at Indiana University, I never once encountered a person that had a good experience with Hallmark. Do not rent/deal/associate with this company!

We have lived in these apartments for two years and really enjoy living here. They are in a central location of the city, have plenty of parking and is right by a Bloomington Transit shuttle stop. The building is kept up well and the office staff are friendly and courteous. The apartment is very spacious and has tons of storage. Only $555 a month for a 2 bed 1 bath with a balcony! Not bad at all!

Forest Ridge Apartments are clean, safe and quiet. Each complex has a main entrance to allow for another layer of safety. In snowy conditions, the sidewalks and parking lot are plowed. The two-bedroom apartments are open and spacious. \r\n\r\n

We have rented with Hallmark Rentals since August 2008 and have been in the same unit the entire time. The staff has always been helpful and willing to work with us, tending to repairs in a timely manner. The unit has always been comfortable and very nice to reside in. We have enjoyed a new refrigerator, paint repairs, new gutters, and a shower installment. Overall we have been very satisfied with the professional attitude presented by Hallmark Rentals.

We have rented from Hallmark Rentals for almost 2 years and have been very happy with it! When our heat went out this winter, they were very prompt in getting someone out to us, and even replaced the whole unit! Very good rental company! A+

My family and I rent from Hallmark Rentals in Bloomington, IN. We have been very pleased with the rental management team. They were very understanding this past month when they received my rent late, due to my infant son being ill. They waved the late fees. The duplex we rent also had new carpet and fresh paint when we moved in. The maintenence men are also very timely, which is nice. We will continue to rent from Hallmark Rentals in the future!\r\n\r\n

I had a great experience with Hallmark. I lived at one of their apartments for 2 and a half years. The staff was very professional. I remember being late on my rent once after living there a year due to an unexpected trip out of town. I asked if they would remove the late fee and they did! After living there 2 and a half years I wanted to move in with my boyfriend and asked if they could help me sublet my apartment. They were able to sublet the apartment for me and even refunded the rent I had paid in advance. I would highly recommend them.

This is a terrible management company. Don't let them fool you with reasonable sounding monthly rent. My house had slanting floors in nearly every room a.k.a. the house is falling into the ground, walls, floors, and ceilings are all caving in. The staff at their brand new all brick office is extremely rude, un-informed, and very unhelpful. We had someone break in a window while we were out and it took one of our parents calling and screaming at them and a week for them to come out and fix the window. After this they tried charging us for the repairs until we finally were told to bring in a police report. House was full of mold which they also tried making us pay for claiming we weren't using the fans in our bathrooms. During our walk through they wrote every little dent and ding down. They also claimed one of the bedrooms smelled like ""a pet"". We never had a single pet in the house. None of us lived there over the summer and we came to move out to find hobos living on our front porch because Hallmark hadn't checked on it. We called the police and while we waited called Hallmark to inform them, they never called back and the move out inspector had no idea this had occured. Many, many problems with the property. NEVER NEVER NEVER RENT FROM HALLMARK RENTALS!!!

This is an absolutely atrocious management company. I'm a responsible professional and did not appreciate my ceiling caving in and dripping water on my belongings for at least six weeks. The response time for maintenance was incredibly long, and the company charged us hundreds of dollars above our deposit for routine paint and a cleaning charge (when we had left the place spotless).\n\nMany people complain when they are charged for damaging a place. I did not damage the house on 7th street, and I respectfully lived there. Hallmark hung me out to dry, so don't make the same mistake by renting from this worthless company.\n

Pros: zero

Cons: Cheated, Low quality place, zero professionalism

Upon move out I was charged 1,000 dollars. I was charged twice for carpet cleaning, etc. I had to fight to get it lowered. During my stay at the apartment they tried to charge me for anything that needed to be fixed. I highly recommend finding another rental agency. They are unorganized and inconsiderate.

This place is a disaster. I have never before met with such obstinate inflexibility, stupidity, and incompetence in a management company.

Overall, they're not that bad. They have some fairly decent properties at reasonable prices, and they try to make sure that the properties are adequately maintained. On the flip side though, like most other college town rental property management firms they try to snag you into an early lease renewal. My best advice for this seedy tactic of theirs: BEWARE!\r\n\r\nIf you needed a co-signer for the first lease, and got one, they'll manipulate you into making sure that you have one for the next lease. First, what they do is they tell you that if you don't get a co-signer, then your name will be taken off the lease; the lease will have to be reevaluated to see if your roommate can afford the rental payment on his own; if it is found that he can't, then his name will be taken off the lease as well. Then, when your co-signer decides not to co-sign again for you, they'll send you an email saying that they need the co-signer papers or else ""undesired actions will have to be implemented."" But, once you decide that you don't want to live there anymore anyway, and as you're on your way out the door to go sign a leasing agreement with another firm, you call them up to see if your name has already been taken off the lease as they said it would be if there were no co-signer for you; their reply: You've already signed the lease. It's a binding legal agreement. By law, you can't get out of it unless your roommate is able to find someone to sublet your part. So, you come to find out that not only has your name not been taken off the lease, but it would have been illegal for that to have even happened. \r\n\r\nThey are feeble in legal matters (until they don't get to turn a buck), and they will hassle you with lies and/or incompetency until you're so stressed out that your head wants to explode-- all so that they can go home to lay their head down on a few extra bucks per month. \r\n\r\nBasically: HR=good, but they will have absolutely no problem screwing you over. CAVEAT EMPTOR!
