Hello, I am a ChicagoGraystone Property hostage! I live in a beautiful unit that they built but could not sell, hence they leased it. I was very impressed by the finishes and the layout, but clearly that work must have been outsourced. At the lease signing, the service peaked! \r Our property manager is Jeff Piazekney and the only thing harder than saying his last name is getting ahold of him. On a good day he is a GOOF! His assistant Angela, cannot get you off the phone fast enough. She is less than helpful. Our building needs painting, the common areas are dirty, the dumpsters do not get emptied, and the building is STILL not finished. I know 1 tenant is meeting with an attorney to break the lease due to ""nonperformance"". All this at a ""Luxury Rental"" for a rent of $3000 per month. If you are a tenant GET OUT WHEN YOU CAN, if you are not a tenant, STAY OUT! These people are in way in over their heads they could not manage their way out of a wet brown paper bag. Pros: great location and ammenities Cons: Chicago Graystone Realty. more

Don't fall victim!!! 1/6/2009

I currently live in a building managed by Graystone Realty. To say they are bad gives them too much credit. The dumpsters are covered in bags of dog feces, the lobby has never been painted, the outside lights have never worked, the sidewalks are only scraped when we call and complain about the snow and ice, and at over $3,000 a month we have homeless people sleeping in the dumpsters. This is a new building and we are the first tenants. When you call for maintenance Angela will tell you that someone will be right over. When I reported the smell of gas on a Monday I had to call back 3 times and they finally showed up on Thursday. The property manager, Jeff is a total fraud. He never answers his phone, he is always in a meeting. He only calls you when you happen to get a hold of his boss, Mike. There is absolutely no management of our building. Angela and Jeff seem irritated when you call for service. Mike protects Jeff and in the meantime their tenants are not happy and paying premium rent for Section 8 Service. I don't understand how this company is in business and hopefully the current real estate market will force them to close their doors before they find more victims.\r \r Pros: non Cons: no managment and no communication more

Avoid this leasing company at all costs. Horrendous. 4/24/2008

Yes, this company is SO bad that I feel compelled to warn everyone about them. Avoid Chicago Graystone/Castlebar Enterprises at all costs, and tell your friends, too. Their services are horrendous and their professional ethics are non-existant.\r \r My friend and I recently fell in love with an apartment we found via a Graystone Craigslist listing. We viewed the place and called the next day to put in an offer. That's where the problem began. Like most people on here, CG has no professional communication skills whatsoever. You call and no one answers. They say they'll call you back Monday evening, you hear back Tuesday morning. Nice. We were willing to do whatever it took to sign a lease as soon as possible. When we finally did get ahold of somebody at CG (we talked to three incompetent employees - Alexia, Melissa, and Carlos) we were told by nearly each of them that they weren't showing the apartment so not to worry about rushing and that we could settle the app fees and security deposits the next day. Well, come to find out, someone else looked at the place the very same day and signed the app papers, paid the money, and CG gave the apartment to them, even though we told them we wanted it and would pay at any time. They never told us there was a critical time frame and to hurry on the deal and in fact lied to us when they said no one was looking at it. They went behind our backs and gave it to other renters simply because they had a quicker move-in date. They screwed us over royally and am still very irritated and annoyed with the company. I advise everyone to use ANY OTHER APT FINDING COMPANY over going through these people. They are incompetent, they are unprofessional, and they do not care about their ""customers""....they care about their lunch time.\r \r Isn't it time to fire Alexia? She's rude, slow, and apparently sends her minions to do all of her work. Can I have her job?\r \r Stay away from them, and spread the word. Pros: None. Cons: Lazy employees, no professional ethics, no communication, deceptive practices more
