My daughter and her friend rented an apartment when they were told they could have one parking space in the lot and could get a second space from the town of Raleigh. Officials said that their address did not qualify for a neighborhood lot. Carl at VG Murray told her that he thought they had changed the laws, but she signed a lease. When I called to ask what could be done, he told me "Nothing!" I'm sure you can do better elsewhere.

Our downtown apartment complex was recently acquired by VG Murray from Grubb Ventures a couple of months ago. I was very apprehensive at first..will rent skyrocket, does management ignore requests, on and on. None of the above. And mind you, I have had a few requests already, which were promptly responded to. The owner, TW, immediately spent $ to massively improve our parking lot, is installing a W/D facility on site, and provided adequate walkways. The staff is Awesome. I have dealt with Natalie, Carl, and Bonnie who have all been accommodating and kind. I have had numerous conversations with the actual owner of VG, Tom, who is friendly, funny, and engaging as to what will make his tenants more comfortable. Can't comprehend the bad reviews because they are A1 in my book! I recommend 100% based off my experience.

I have rented two apartments from VG Murray and Co during and after my days at NCSU. They have a unique selection of apartments unlike any other landlord in Raleigh and have always been very responsive to repair requests or other concerns that I had. I have gotten to know the folks who work there (including Bonnie who some reviewers have been critical of, her job is to collect rent and handle eviictions, she's a bottom line type of woman, so pay your rent). I have found all of the employees to be professional and courteous and I really love the diversity and character of the property they manage. Well done!

I absolutely love renting from V. G. Murray and Company! I rented an apartment from them while a student at Cambell Law School until I graduated and returned home to Charlotte. Now that I have moved back to Raleigh I am leasing a home in a wonderful old neighborhood near downtown, the type of rental that is hard to find except through the Murray Company. Through the years I have developed a personal friendship with their office staff and have a heartfelt appreciation for our landlord/ tenant relationship.

If you want an apartment inside the beltline, this is the only landlord to call. They have a huge selection of choice buildings and locations that are actually affordable and very well maintained. Great letting agency, Chaps!

Wonderful selection of apartments, great locations, reasonable rental rates, prompt repairs. Carl, Laura, Kim and Mr. Murray are all extremely pleasant. Turns out that this Bonnie lady some reviewers have blasted is the lady who handles deliquent payments and evictions. Maybe that explains it?

I've lived in my current apartment almost 4 years. VG Murray took over about 2 years ago, and the first thing to go was being able to drop off rent at the office. Second thing to go was convenient office hours.
I will say this, I had a streak of bad luck in August 2009, lost my job, and was unemployed/underemployed for about 4 months. They were extremely patient - up to a point. When the eviction notice finally came, after I had sent them some money a few days before, I went to court expecting to be able to work things out. That was a big mistake. What rankled me the most was the notice did not take into account the $400 I sent them, and the person who represented them in court made no mention of the payment to the judge. I had to break it to the judge that a payment had been made, then VG Murray rep said it had been sent to the wrong address and was in a personal check, which they wouldn't accept, yet they did. If I had not shown up they would have received an extra $400 in judgments. I'm waiting for the sheriff to come on this.

Pros: Good maintenence

Cons: Bad everything else, and rip off artists

Karl is very friendly and helpful. Maintenance has been reliable and prompt. Beautiful and spacious apartment for very good price. Flexible on lease terms and pets. I recommend you check them out. I see some of the other reviews are negative but I think if you pay the rent on time and respect the property then you shouldn't have any problems.

I was afraid that my review might look like some crazy ranting but after seeing everyone else's I think its 100% fair to say that this company is probably the WORST property management company in existence. They are the most disorganized company I have ever had any contact with. I recently moved out of one of their properties (yes, because they're that awful) and it has been 2 months and I still do not have any of my security deposit left. I have had to call them probably 10-15 times in the last 3 weeks and every time I call I first get accused of not leaving a forwarding address, which couldn't be further from the truth because knowing how disorganized they are I left them my new address TWICE. Then, each time I call I have to explain my entire situation completely all over again. Have they not heard of a customer records management system??? They are rude, they never call you back and when you call them frustrated because no one has gotten back to you they either just completely dismiss you or get loud at you. Absolutely horrible, I would seriously discourage anyone and everyone from renting from them. In addition i would seriously discourage any property owner from hiring them to manage your property because your tenants will all move out and you'll probably lose money because no one wants to rent from VG Murray.

Now I am not necessarily a difficult person to please, and I'm patient, I mean, it's been 3 weeks and I'm just NOW writing this. i have been beyond patient. There are some great property management companies in the area, the one that I had before VG Murray took over was fantastic. It was rare that you got the office voicemail but when you did they always called you back the same day, often within a couple of hours. They went out of their way to help you if you were a good tenant, and seriously I was saddened when I found out the landlord decided to switch. My guess is they just wanted to save money but I bet they will end up losing money. Oh, and I totally forgot but even when they did become the new property managers the didn't even notify any of the tenants until 2 days before the 1st of the month!! And it was December! Do they not think that people probably travel out of town to visit family and maybe wouldn't get the note they left on the door. I was ALMOST late sending them my rent because I had already sent it to the previous company not knowing that they were no longer the managers! And THEY were the ones that called me to tell me this, not VG Murray. I honestly think they were hoping people would be late on rent so they could make them pay ridiculous extra fees and make a few more bucks.

Anyway, do not rent from this company. You will hate your living situation for the entire time.

If anyone is curious about the company i mentioned that is FANTASTIC feel free to contact me. I'm not going to name drop because I don't want to give the impression that I'm working for them or something. But I am about to go leave a fantastic review about them just because after working with VG Murray I am a million times more grateful for the other company's great service.

I DO NOT RECOMEND THAT YOU RENT FROM THIS COMPANY! EVER!!

The price is not worth the PAIN AND SUFFERING you will endure.

My carpet flooded becouse my neighbors water heater blew up this happend June 6th and now it is June 22nd My carpet has not been changed or fixed in anyway, we had fans in our place for 5 days and we are still not sure when this is going to be taken care of.

Our closet doors fall off all the time so now we just put them under our bed. We called Kim Torres who is the leasing agent to tell her about it she responded that her's fell off all the time to so we could put them back on our selves.

We had huge crickets and other vermons and she also said she had them in her house and they were not a porblem

KIM TORRES (UGLY OLD A#S RAGDY B&#CH) at Driftwood, She is a F@#&ing B%$CH! I hate her. She has a smart mouth, she never finds solutions, she is gives her personal opinion about everything when no one asks for it, she is ONE OF THE THINGS MAKING OUR LEASING TIME SO TERRIBLE! WE HATE THIS OLD F&CKING B@TCH!

.......bottom line DO NOT EVER LEASE FROM V G MURRAY & COMPANY EVER EVER NEVER!!!

Note: I only put one star because I had to; I wanted to put 0. NEVER EVER rent from this company. If you complain that things are broken/ need to be fixed when you move in, they won't fix them, and when you move out you will be charged for them. they take information down on scrap paper, which is probably why they lost my complaint and why we are being charged for things we are not responsible for. I am in complete shock at how awful and unprofessional this company is, not to mention angry. They are also charging us $500 to paint the house, although we never painted and so by law they have to repaint between tenants anyway. apparently it costs that much to put putty in a few nail holes where pictures were hanging. Again I stress, NEVER EVER rent from them.

Pros: Locations

Cons: Lack Of Integrity

Let me start off by saying that Bonnie is the biggest witch I've ever met. Everyone is super friendly until you need maintenance. When I requested a work order (12 things that needed to be fixed in my apartment), it seemed as though a dark cloud loomed over the rental office. I moved in on March 13th, here it is April 27th and I have YET to get a smoke detector or the mold removed from my home.

The maintenance man came unannounced (twice) and walked in on me in my bed scantily clad.

When I moved into Hayes Barton Apartments they hadn't even cleaned the apartment after the last tenant left. I STILL have make-up, towels, etc. from the person who occupied this living space before me. Nasty, right?

mmmmhmmm.

If you're thinking about renting from this hell hole my advice to you: Run, run as fast as you can in the opposite direction.

I don't usually review places in public, but a recent incident makes me want to say something about all these comments.
I actually love where I live, and I have had good experiences with Carl. He has always been understanding and found me places to live that I like quite a bit.
Recently I had my first-ever run in with Bonnie though, and I must say that if I had the chance to move somewhere else for a similar price I would do it. I have not been this angry in a long, long time.
Long story short:
The post office lost my rent check. I know the number of the check and when it was sent, but VG Murray never received it so I got a late rent notice. Trying to explain this to Bonnie was useless. Apparently it's my fault that I trust the post office to deliver things when you send them. I went to the office and wrote a check for my full rent the day after I got this notice and point blank asked her to take off the late fee b/c I will not pay it, now or ever. She looked at me, smiled, and said, "no". In 4.5 years of living where I am now I have only been late with rent once, and it was when I had a roommate. And in those 4.5 years, I've had the post office screw up twice now. I'm sorry Bonnie, but what the hell is your problem? Thanks for ruining my day b*tch.

We have been renting a home in North Raleigh from VG Murray for just over 2 years. During our time with them we have never had any issues. We have had difficulty with the rent at times and have only received reminder notices. No one, Bonnie nor Carl, have been rude at any time. We have had multiple problems with our plumbing and heating. Everytime the problem was resolved within 24 hours (unless parts needed to be ordered.) Carl has always followed up with us to make sure the problems were fixed appropriately. I normally do not post reviews like this but feel that folks need to know VG Murray has been a great rental company despite other's bad reviews.

Pros: Great Service. Reasonably priced housing

Cons: Many listing are older properties

.

And whatever you do, don't expect help from Bonnie, the intolerably rude woman who'll gladly tell you they "run a business, not a charity" if you happen to need even the slightest bit of assistance with your rent check. Any payment past the 15th of the month automatically triggers the eviction process--or so they want you to think. In reality, any payment past the 15th triggers a tsunami of hate-filled, venom-dripping phonecalls from Bonnie, from leasing agent Carl Coats or anyone on staff who just wants to vent. They're sweet as pie...until you need help or have any tenant problems whatsoever. Imagine working in an office environment full of hardcore cynics such as these--then count your blessings and realize how great your life is compared to the pathetic lives of the knuckle-dragging hellhounds at V. G. Murray. Then rent somewhere else. Please. To save your sanity. Best case: Save your $$$ and buy a house: The worst mortgage lender in town isn't half as bad as these people.

Pros: A few decent rental properties near NC State.

Cons: A slumlord--as are so many other small, cheap property management companies in Raleigh--or anywhere, for that matter.

Never, ever, under any circumstances, rent from these people. They will attempt to rip you off any chance they get. They are rude and neglect their tenants. I will refrain from mentioning my current problems with them (as they are ongoing), but I should have listened to the dozen friends who said to stay clear of V.G. Murray.

Pros: none.

Cons: complete neglect, attempt to rip you off any chance they get.

I have had the WORST experience with this company, EVER! They have been nothing but rude to me since I rented a home from them first of all. I sent my rent in one month, and asked them to hold it for ONE day, and they failed to do that. They also send their rent money checks straight to a confidential bank, so you don't even know when its processed, and if you have any questions or concerns about your payment, they can't answer any questions. They can't keep up with the payments that you make, and I had one gentleman named CARL call me and harrass me at work, and talk to me with total and utmost DISRESPECT, and I will NEVER, and I repeat NEVER use these people again, nor would I recommend it to anyone unless you plan on having to deal with disrespect! Take your money and spend it with someone that treats you right!
Note to VG Murray...You need to hire better employees and work on your CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

We used V G Murray to help us find an apartment after just getting married. Carl found us a great apartment in the Raleigh downtown area for a superb price. Being on a limited budget as newlyweds, we appreciated the individual care that we were given and we very satisfied with our find. We would use them again any day. Thanks guys!
