Lake Park Apartments
1565 Madison st apartments is undergoing the dreaded process of gentrification. On 6/12/2014 This building was taken over by new owners , and new management. The new owner are the First Class, and the new property management is The Apartment Group Inc. The intent was to meet the August 1st deadline where Oakland rent adjustment regulations change; these changes took some burden off the tenants financially, and allowed for more leverage.The transition of ownership and management has been been tumultuous, and chaotic. There has been a lack of respect for tenants and a disregard for what would be in the best interest of the tenants. There have been many incidence where tenants health and safety were jeopardized. With all of these incidence management and the owners have taken the position of denial of guilt , no surprise there.Many tenants, and tenant advocacy groups are fighting to prevent such practices from setting legal precedence in the city of Oakland. The primary goal of these investors is to maximize their profit margins, and see unrealized capital yields. Their priority is not aligned with improving the lives of tenants. The argument is they are apart of the community, and want to be apart of a great positive transformation in Oakland.If you are against this practice of economic displacement, please notify your friends and family, as well as your public officials that such practices will not be permitted. Many immigrants, seniors, disabled, and good hearted hard working people are looking at devastating changes in their life. Sadly the diversity of this area will quickly decline.

Lapham Company Property Management
I have been renting from the Lapham Companies apartment complex on Lagunitas Avn for the past year and have yet to have a negative experience. Never needed to request a repair so I can't speak to there responsiveness, but that's a problem I don't mind having. The landlord Rose and her husband live in the same building and I have never had reason to complain. I moved into an apartment with new carpet , new cabinets, new counter tops, and modern windows. I pay my rent on time, and have never been bothered by the property managers. Once ever other month or so will receive a note from the landlord letting me know that the water Will be hit off for a few hours or some other maintenance will be occurring during work hours, which is always fine for me. The building is safe and things are quite at night. Many of the people in this building have been here for 5-10 years. Overall clean, safe, living environment.

Lapham Company Property Management
We had a good experience renting a Lapham managed apartment, and found them to be honest and conscientious in the conduct of business. Their agent showed us a couple of places in Oakland we mixed, then showed us a beach apartment in Alameda we loved. We lived there seven years and moved recently. In spite of the fact that time and energy ran out on me after a long-distance move (Texas y'all) and I left a significant amount of the cleaning to be done, they took a reasonable amount from my security deposit and returned most of it. I would't hesitate to rent from them again.

Bay's Elite Management Group, Inc.
My partner and I have been living in an apartment managed by Bay's Elite Management Group for about three years now, and we couldn't be happier. Pedrem has been both attentive and prompt when we have had need to contact him. We have recently had to move out of state rather quickly, and Pedrem has been very accommodating and helpful. Bay's Elite Management treats tenets like people, not just names on a rent check. If you are looking for a place to live, I would highly suggest looking at Bay's Elite Management property first.-Jack H

Lapham Company Property Management
I’m very happy with the cottage I am renting. My cottage has a large, updated, modern kitchen, hardwood floors, a claw foot tub, pretty rose bushes planted in the front, a private yard and was nicely painted upon move in. I wish they had put grass in the yard instead of leaving it as a dirt lot, but that’s a minor complaint as I was told we can landscape I however we want. There is a common laundry room for all the cottages too which is very nice.

Lapham Company Property Management
They were really friendly and seemed as if they really have their stuff together. We just moved to the area so we had to travel to come look at the property and they were very accommodating. Once we were very late due to traffic and the agent stood by until we got there to show us a property. We just moved in and everything’s going smoothly. Final walk through before move in looked spotless. I’m ready to start out time here in Oakland.

Lapham Company Property Management
I found them to be very Professional and organized, The common area was kept nice and I had very few of the problems I'm used to with apartment life. I have lived in a Lapham apartment for about 1 1/2 years now. again its staff are fair and friendly. I have lived in other complexes where the managment is virtually absent, but not with Lapham, they are there when you need them.

Lapham Company Property Management
I have been with the Lapham Company for two and have relied on them for a variety of property management needs and maintenance issues. I find them to be an excellent resource with repairs and a timely agency in their responses. Their range of services and intuitive decisions my life stress free living in their property. Great company and I’ve had no issues.

Lapham Company Property Management
Lapham Company used to manage the building I live in. Since the new manager took over, we have had lots of problems. Recently, I called Lapham to ask advice on how to deal with the new management company. They were happy to inform me of my rights as a tenant and what I should expect from the new managers. I have to say, I miss having Lapham around.
