What our tenants have to say
My partner and I moved to Oakland from Oklahoma and were nervous about finding housing with our dog. Not only that, we needed to secure a place before even seeing it. While we were nervous about renting a place unseen, Mary made the process really comfortable for us by answering our questions and being respectful of our reluctance.
“We ultimately arrived to our apartment for the first time and were SO PLEASED with the apartments and overall experience. The location is unbeatable — truly walking distance to everything. Having a designated parking spot in the garage is also so helpful in the area. Although we were so close to everything, there was still something quaint about being on Howe Street rather than right off of Piedmont Ave.

“With the property and management, there are so many wonderful things about Howe Street Apartments. The building is pretty quiet overall — many of the residents have been there for so long that it almost feels like a big family. You begin to recognize and get to know people from the building, including those from different floors. Management tries to be as helpful as possible and will do their best to accommodate you. It’s also clear they have a lot of pride in the building and want to correct any problems.
“Lastly, I’ve lived in many different apartments throughout my life and have never received even close to all of my deposit back — even with zero damages and hiring professional cleaners to clean. We received almost all of our deposit back (after a small deduction for a carpet cleaning/sanitizing fee — totally fair since we had a pet).
“Overall, if you have a chance to live here, do it. If we’re ever back in the area, I’d definitely consider moving back to these apartments.”
