I lived in Virginia Highlands, and I too rented a place from MLC Properties. After having one landlord-from-you-know-where experience, I am pleased and relieved to say that I got none of that from MLC. The house I lived in was beautiful. Definitely an older house, but *very* well maintained. Everything in the house worked beautifully, and if something did go wrong, it was fixed the next day. I would definitely recommend renting from MLC, as they are incredibly efficient and professional.
