It's rare that I would say "It was a pleasure to rent from ...," but I say that happily here in reference to J. Butler. I was in a bit of a unique situation necessitating both a quick move and a property friendly to my two large dogs, and I was incredibly lucky in two ways - finding the unit in the first place, and having Rich as the rental agent. Rich got approvals for my dogs from the property's owners in no time, and he also secured a move-in date ahead of schedule (to coincide with a long weekend).
Additionally, the property was immaculate on move-in day -- not just professionally cleaned, but the walls were patched (frame hangers, shelf anchors, etc.), sanded, and entirely repainted, and the carpeting in the bedrooms was steam cleaned. It was, without any exaggeration, like new.
I've dealt with perfectly fine landlords and pretty bad landlords, but the team at J. Butler (Rich, Amanda, et al.) is great. They're friendly, professional, and prompt to respond, and they make a renter's life easy. I would highly recommend renting with them. If my experience is even remotely representative (and it seems to be), I can't imagine that you'll go wrong.
Helpful – Middle aged working professional- moved to MA from out of state. Couldn't have had a more smooth transition. Called into the Butler main office and was directed to Rich, who returned my call with three different properties he thought may fit what I was looking for. We met up , looked at the units, and the rest is history. He was so helpful, professional, and polite. He worked to meet me according to my schedule ,which I have rarely experienced with leasing agents n the past. I moved in two weeks later and have been happy in Somerville since.
Great Management – My wife and I recently decided to rent our home rather than sell in this market. We contacted a few management companies and went with Butler. After just a few months with them, we are so pleased. They found tenants right away and their monthly reports to us are great. We are so very happy with their service we've recommended them to friends being transferred overseas! We've been really happy.
:) – Have been living in a Butler Run property since 2007. I have always been helped whenever necessary, and maintenence is always done in a timely manner. The girls at the office are always willing to help with anything, and have helped my renting experience run smoothly. Would recommend to anyone !!!
Extremely Upset & Angry – When moving in here, my intentions were to stay for 4 years. The high school is right down the street and my son has 4 years left. Work is a mile away. Couldn't be better, right? Wrong. Storm number 2...And who can't get their son to school (2 days after a storm)? Who can't get to work? WE CAN'T! Whomever plows makes a swipe, PLOW WIDTH ONLY, down the driveway. And when he gets to the bottom he doesn't plow the empty parking spots so you have 2 feet of snow to your left and right, and about 4 feet in the front. Who plows and doesn't know how to back scrape? When questioned, he's afraid to do anything because, "I'll have to pay for any damages". Well, that's a confident/secure employee.
I walk down my driveway with no lights. Although, Rich was great showing me the place and was extremely kind. He can't even get a word in edge-wise. He, himself, put the work order in 3 weeks ago... Yep, I still may slide down my driveway that I cannot see trying to get to my car because I can't see the patch of ice at 6 in the morning to go to work to pay the rent. (By the way, which has no salt, no sand, and no room for my car to go up anyways.) I've purchased everything... Salt, sand... and yes, I've called a company to come plow & sand the driveway so I could go to work. Thank God there was no school. My son was able to stay home and continue shoveling us out.
Great Landlord! – I actually checked this site before I moved into my apartment and the only reason I went with this company really was because my sister rents an apartment from them in Revere and she loves them. I have to tell you, I've lived here for 4 months and it's been great. The agent that put me in, Rich was fantastic, LOVED him. Since moving in, anything that I've needed, mostly small stuff really, but anything I need, they are so helpful. I moved here from Virginia to be closer to my sister and didn't know a lot about the area, they were great when it came to my utilities getting turned on, etc. I just kept telling myself to come on here and give my opinion on them, so I am. :)
happy home owner – Butler manages the condo community where I own a unit. I felt obliged to leave a review after my most recent encounter. I only see this group once a year at my annual meeting, but recently, my stove went and I called them for help. They were so kind and helpful, they even went ahead and ordered a stove through their dealer for me (at a lower cost than I could have got I'm sure) They made a stressful situation for me much easier.
So nice – I recently moved into an apartment in Beverly managed by Butler and they have been so great. From start to finish on getting me in. The leasing guy Rich was awesome and so helpful. I've been living here 6 months now and the only one maintenance issue I had (leaking sink) they took care of right away.
Gets the job done – We are an association of 25 units and J. Butler took over managing us about one year ago. We have been so happy with their services. They have quick response time when it comes to maintenance and communication. I can always get someone to help me. I am a trustee and many of the unit owners have expressed to me how happy they are with our new management company, which makes me very happy.
