I'm trying to flag some apartments to check out when I go to accepted students day since I live pretty far away and it would be nice to get some of that stuff out of the way. I was looking online and mozart management looked affordable..but also possibly sketchy? any insight would be awesome. I'm looking mainly in shadyside.
Just from browsing old threads I read that Mozart, Equity Real Estate, Forbes Management, Meyers Management, Walnut Capital are good. JJ Land and Lobos is bad (from this thread: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=112&start=25 ) .
This thread says Mozart isn't good, however. viewtopic.php?f=7&t=130116&start=1500
This one says Lobos is awful as well http://www.city-data.com/forum/pittsbur ... chool.html
I think I am going to look for an apartment in Shadyside as of now, but we'll see when I visit the school. I really would like to find a roommate though- would make things a lot cheaper.
