It took several months for them to fix a patio door that had a 2" gap in it, allowing for bugs to get in. While we were living in the apartment, I filed a claim with the Better Business Bureau because our door hadn't been fixed in months. A couple days later I received a phone call from the property manager, Mike, asking if I wanted to be evicted; because of the complaint I submitted and posting poor reviews on websites Mike threatened to evict me. Being fearful that I would have nowhere to live I withdrew the claim and posted excellent reviews for him, now that we're finally free, I feel safe enough to tell the truth. After the contract expired and we moved out, we received a bill for damages for just under $1,000. We demanded to see the damages and upon doing a walk-through, none could be found. Upon leaving the apartment, which now had a new resident, Mike said we'd be getting something from him in the mail. My mother, who co-signed the lease for me asked what we could be expecting and Mike didn't raise his voice, he screamed MONEY MONEY MONEY! It took over a month for them to pay our security deposit back.

I also wish I could give zero stars. MJ kelly expects to do NEXT TO NOTHING between renters. He charges for painting/cleaning...ANY services provided by any workers you are charged for upon leaving - despite the fact that the apartment is

TERRIBLE! They are truely scam artists. They DO NOT give back security deposits. They never painted before we moved in, and they turned around and said they had to paint so we therefore lose our security deposit. They lied and said there we caused damage to appliances when we didn't! We have the pictures to prove it, M J KELLY!!! I don't care if I don't get my security deposit back all I care about is that their reputation is tainted by one more rightfully so, disgruntled, and angry tenant. See you in court M J Kelly!!!!! :) If you didn't get the hint....DON'T RENT FROM THESE SLUMLORDS!! DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THE REALITY COMPANY BEFORE YOU RENT!

Mike Kelly is a thief. He lies and is beyond inappropriate on the phone when you call nicely to ask him why he has charged you for absurd things. He DID NOT paint the walls when we moved it, it was disgusting and the carpet was so old and

If I could give ZERO stars I would. DO NOT RENT FROM M.J. Kelly! Michael Kelly is a thief and a terrible landlord. The company is disorganized, neglects tenant requests, and raises your rent by $100 each year! The staff is incompetent and

Horrible. Slumlord at best. Doesn't repair anything!! The carpet in our building is 40 years old. Wallpaper (flocked) is obviously that old. The grounds are a mess. The doorknob on the entrance fell off. He refuses to repair or clean up anything. And when I called about a fire alarm going off, he hung up on me. He is a thief. No one should rent from him. He took what was once a very nice apartment to a new low. No one would want to live here. He refuses to replace carpet or to paint in apartments even if they have been rented for thirty years. He is a complete idiot. A thief.

Big time slum landlord. Stay away! Please don't rent from them because you will be sorry. If you do rent from them, make sure the place has everything you want because despite promises of getting things after you move in, you won't. Nothing will be replaced unless your life is in danger. If you report them for something that they should legally do for your safety, they will evict you. They are liars and thieves. They constantly raise the rent and you get nothing in return. Do yourself a HUGE favor and look to rent elsewhere.

I used MJ Kelly to sell my real estate. He never came through. His marketing is deplorable. He irritated the tenants by not notifying them in advance he was horrible. He lies, steals and cheats. Very unethical man

Lived in one of the apartments for years and nothing ever got fixed even if it was causing damage. They do the least possible (usually nothing despite begging) but want to keep raising your rent. Old, cheap appliances, cheap carpeting, holes in the walls and doors, apartments need painted. Avoid.

This has to be the biggest ripoff artist in Pittsburgh. Not only are their rentals trash, they prey on college students and work the system worst than any con artist you will ever meet. TRASH. They make things up so not to pay you back your deposit, file magistrate papers and force you to pay them if you are a day late. STAY AWAY FROM THEM> I am counter suing them and will post the results.

This apt was not only filthy, but unsafe. The door jam was broken and ajar, the steps were a hazard that caused injury, the landlord enters the apt without notice, he never pays deposits back, makes the renter pay 3 months in advance, is constantly filing with the magistrate and then causing the students to pay those charges too. Habitually lies. We have the receipts from cleaning the apt professionally both b4 and after moving in, MJ Kelly lied and said the apt was dirty when it was in better shape than when we moved in. I know of 3 different college students that he has taken advantage of, and we are talking slumlord. This guy is a ripoff. His staff also lies and creates additional problems. Stay away from MJ Kelly

Pros: none

Cons: trash apts, doesn't honor lease, harrasses college students

The house was never cleaned or painted before we moved in. The walls and ceilings were water damaged and crumbling... The ceiling on the top floor actually caved in and it took weeks for them to repair it. As we were moving out, I came to the house one day to pick up the rest of my belongings and take the trash out but to my surprise everything in the house had gone missing. When questioned to the whereabouts of my things I was, I was immedietely berated and cursed at by Michael Kelly. I would expect some kind of respect to due to a customer of 2 years. Never rent from these scumbag slumlords, they do nothing but rip you off. SEE YOU IN COURT MICHAEL KELLY!

DO NOT rent from this company! I came to Pittsburgh from out of town to look at apartments. I put down a deposit on a place and filled out the necessary paperwork. They called me the next day, after I already left, to say that they gave the place away! They accepted several deposits without telling anyone in order to get the interested parties to offer more rent in order to "win" the apartment. Very shady. Don't count on them to honor any agreements.

Kelly, Mike J - M J Kelly Realty
2147 Ardmore Blvd
Pittsburgh, PA 15221
4122715550 provided excellent service. Very knowledgable and friendly. Hard working and helpful staff. We are very happy with our real estate agent Mike Kelly and this firm. Made our experience a pleasure not a nightmare like many experience. Very forthright and in the best interest of our needs. Top recommendation! I read the last comment and I guess if you need a place fast and you get a place fast, the renter/client may need prepare and assess the situation with realistic expectations before jumping in. We did not have this experience at all.

I rented from M J Kelly Realty only because I was out of time and had to move fast. The place was not in great shape, but I was assured that it would be cleaned and the bathroom re-worked before I moved in. I also knew that I would have to pay for 12 months worth of rent but only get to live in the apt for 11 and a half months.

When I moved in, the place was filthy. The carpet was gross, the kitchen sink leaked causing mold to grow under the sink, and there was dirt and dust in every imaginable corner. The bathroom had not been remodeled, just some plastic liner loosely glued in. Later, I discovered that the air conditioner was not secured in the window like it should have been, but balanced using a 2 by 4 (I took it out because it was drafty, go figure). After much complaining, I got them to hire somebody to come by and at least shampoo the carpets and clean up a little, but I did most of the clean up myself.

I was supposed to be notified when the company would be coming by to show the place to a possible future tenant, but at least once, they barged in without knocking early on a weekend morning. I couldn't believe how rude they were!

When I left, they kept most of my deposit, even though I cleaned the apt regularly. They charged me for cleaning the carpets and other general cleaning. I got less than half of it back.

I was really shocked at the rude behavior of everyone at M J Kelly Realty and I do not recommend renting from them.

Pros: There was parking included where I lived which I did not have to pay a fee for, but I didn't have a designated spot, so it would have been easy for someone else to park there

Cons: The people working at MJ Kelly are greedy pigs.
