I held a one year lease with Metro Investments from 2009 to 2010. Here are my concerns with this business:

1. I moved in to find plumbing issues and discussed these with the management. They scheduled a maintenance man to come and fix the toilet in September 2009. I came home around 8pm to find my apartment door wide open after the maintenance man forgot to close and lock the door. Metro Investments closes at 5pm, meaning my apartment door was open for at least 3 hours.

2. The maintenance man actually broke the toilet even further and the toilet was never fixed throughout the entire lease.

3. In October 2009, the maintenance man left his ring of keys (labeled for every apartment that Metro Investments owns) in the lobby of the building. I contacted Bruce Field to return the keys and he was unprofessional and rude to me. I asked him what he planned to do about the security issues in the building. He raised his voice to ask me, "What do you want?"

4. During the winter months, I complained several times that the heat was not working. "Heat" was included in my rent agreement and Bruce Field insisted that I was lying. I have several pictures on thermometers in my apartment that show the apartment to be at 54 and 61 degrees, well below the state law of 67 degrees. I called the Shorewood Building Inspector and left a voicemail about the issue, but my call was never returned.

Metro Investments is putting people's lives in danger. They are unwilling to maintain a livable temperature and are irresponsible with keys and security issues.

We lived in one of Metro Investments buildings for one year. We had the best experience with them. Bruce Field is a great landlord and wonderful maintenance guys. Anytime we had anything break they were there in 1-2 business days, but if it was an emergency they would be there the same day and/or night. We did receive our entire security deposit back minus the water and sewer bills. We talked to Bruce about the water bills and he pointed out in the lease where it explains the charges and he even sent us an invoice from each quarter, which was also very helpful. We were late with rent one month and Bruce was very understanding. We had an issue in the building with one of the units having parties and Bruce took care of it immediately. If you are looking for a GREAT company to rent from I would recommend Bruce Field with Metro Investments.

* Pros: Great Landlord, updated apartments, wonderful maintenance and very nice employees!!!
* Cons: Nothing!!!

In dealing with this company I feel that they were rather unfair. They said they would fix several things that were brought to their attention. Bugs, animal living in the attic, old wood pile that brought mice and mold. They did wash the mold with bleach water and repainted. There were big holes under the sink and in some closets. Basically all that was taken care of is the mold. I feel companies like this should be held accountable and should not be allowed to rent out properties in this condition.

While in college we lived at one of Metro Investments properties(located at Humboldt) for two years. It was really unpleasant for us. During that year we:

- dealt with the owner who was unresponsive to our maintenance requests. We asked him to get a faucet that was leaking fixed (we had to pay for water). They didn't respond for more than two weeks! Once they finished work the faucet still leaked and the owners refused to solve the problem.

- were told that we would be charged monthly for our water but the owner refused to send us a bill or tell us how much we were being charged. When we were ready to move out he kept most of our security deposit as payment for the water bill but never provided an invoice. He also tried to say that we owed him more money.

- we noticed that the apartment is not kept clean and is not safe. We lived on the ground floor and we would have tenants that would have mini parties outside, right in front of our windows. We asked both the tenant and the owner to help us resolve the issue; we were ignored. We called the police instead.

There would often be people hanging around the building that didn't live there (it's a small 8 person building so you know who your neighbors are). These people are always letting other people in and sticking things in the doors to prop it open.

- noticed that the mailboxes didn't have functioning locks, so occasionally we wouldn't receive mail that we were expecting. We asked for this to be fixed and we were ignored.

Between the extreme deferred maintenance (cracked flooring, tile, bricks drywall), the unsafe living arrangements and the terrible service, I'd say that its a good idea to stay away from Metro Investments. They're in it for the buck and aren't at all concerned about keeping tenants happy.

Cons: deferred maintenance, unsafe, absentee slumlord,
