14 Upper Queen Street
About the house: Good location and great sun. Compact living space and despite the lift shaft encroaching in the apartment we never once heard anyone coming or going.
Landlord/Property Manager: We had an absolute nightmare with a very arrogant and well known property management company based in Ponsonby. There may be a "Q" in their name ;) But they were a nightmare to deal with and nothing ever got sorted in any reasonable timeframe. They were always apologising as they were SO busy. But it was literally every time. Maybe they should hire more staff?? Anyways of all the property management companies I have dealt with these were the worst.
Best Thing: Evening sun and views
Worst Thing: Small and poorly laid out.
About the house: Great location, huge apartment, big balcony that looked out at other balconies. Got a 3 inch sliver of direct sunlight on the balcony once every day. But that was it.
Landlord/Property Manager: Landlord was fair and really looked after us. Trusting and trustworthy but told you exactly the lay of the land.
Best Thing: Space and location
Worst Thing: No light, smokers from other floors flooded your apartment with stank. No air circulation.
