I spoke with this landlord several times by phone. He was most responsive and forthcoming with details about the apartment. He is a tradesman and sounds like he maintains it conscientiously. He was courteous and more than happy to give elaborate answers to my questions. His follow up by phone and email was very good He appears to be 110% honest. I never did see this unit, but it would have been near the top of my list except that I found a similar unit closer to my office. Although I did not end up renting from this landlord, based on my experience with him (esp compared with the deceptiveness, rudeness, and lack of interest I have experienced with others) I would recommend this landlord highly.
