Yes, in most cases. However, before making a final commitment, we like to meet the pet. Pet deposits are determined after we meet your pet. We do not accept aggressive dogs, Rottweilers, Pit Bulls or any dogs over 60 lbs.
No, these are individual units that we actually own so you are dealing with the owners of the property.
We have properties in over 10 communities. These properties are all within 5 miles of Downtown Dallas so they are close to Uptown, SMU and Presbyterian Hospital. Best of all, they are right in the middle of some of the best entertainment, shopping and dining that Dallas has to offer.
Security is very important no matter where you live. Crime statistics in our neighborhood are lower than the city of Dallas as a whole, and in the specific communities where our condos are located, it’s much much lower! As an added precaution, we’ve installed intrusion alarm systems in all of our homes and we've added other security features like tamper resistant locks and reinforced door jambs.

The photos you see are of the actual place that you would be renting, not some stock photograph or staged unit that doesn't resemble the place that's actually available for rent.
Condos and Townhomes are built for individual ownership versus an apartment which is designed for multi-family housing. This means condos and townhomes have nicer finishes and layouts compared to traditional apartments. All of our condos and townhomes are unique and aren't anything like apartments. In fact, check out our "About Us" link and see what makes us different.
Yes! We typically don't know what places we will have come available until 30 to 45 days in advance. If your move date is past that time period, email us and we will put you on our mailing list.
It's a great question. First of all, all of our condo and townhome apartments for rent are near Uptown Dallas, one of Dallas' hottest neighborhoods. Then we regularly break one of the cardinal rules of real estate investing... "Never fall in love with a place and put the least amount of money into it when you fix it up." But we don't just break that rule...we smash it to pieces. That's because we love our places! In fact, one of our investment criteria is that we never purchase a place that we wouldn’t live in ourselves. Then we go one step further, we remodel it so that it is the very best place in the neighborhood. That means quality upgrades in just about every room. Cookie-cutter, run-of-the mill properties aren't what we're looking for....and we don't think you are either.
