Rob is excellent at ensuring that everyone in the house is comfortable with their living situation and fixes any housing issue the moment that it is presented to him. Rob's great expertise in repairs, construction, and maintenance made quick work of any problem that may exist. Also, Rob does his absolute best to maintain a strong social connection between the housemates by inviting us for games, movies, going out, etc. all while respecting our private space. Rob is a consummate host for any guests that we may bring over by setting up food, drinks, and entertainment. Rob encourages the use of any and all of the wide array of amenities that are available to us. Overall, my living experience at 1421 W Huron St was a very enjoyable one, thanks to Rob's proficiency as a landlord.

--Dan H. (Resident of 1421 W. Huron St -- Aug 2013 - 2014)

"I've had an absolutely pleasurable and relaxing time living with Rob as my roommate and landlord. He honors an individual's personal freedom almost religiously and is always eager to please his tenants and roommates beyond reason. Although some might consider it a bit crazy, he does things like buy our house a 62-inch plasma TV and not charge his tenants a cent for it! The gigantic outdoor hot tub is REALLY nice and it's perfect after a hard day's work or in the middle of winter. Rob exemplifies the exact opposite of a lazy or inattentive landlord. He has NEVER once failed to follow through whether it was putting in an air conditioner, letting me renovate the basement for my music equipment, picking me up from the airport, or fixing one of a thousand luxury items we have at our disposal at 1421 W. Huron. Remember that all utilities and internet are included and it's a really good deal especially when Rob incurs huge property taxes and heating bills in the middle of winter. None is passed on. You will not find a landlord more obsessed with the happiness of his/her tenants than Rob. As a roommate, Rob was always very social and allowed me to have my space when I wanted it.

Most of the time it is quiet around our house, but we occasionally threw a party or two using the spacious empty double lot next to us and our large basement that has a 1920s bar in it. Rob made it difficult for me to move away because he has spoiled us so much; 1421 W. Huron feels like home for me now."

-- Paul D. (Resident 1421 W. Huron St. 2004-2006)

Rob is like nobody you have ever met, or will ever meet, in your life. He cares about his housemates’ comfort possibly more than his own. He demonstrates this by regularly asking if we need anything; offering us utensils/appliances/gadgets just to make our lives easier; and promptly fixing or replacing anything in the house that doesn’t work. And he does all of this sincerely and energetically. All of these actions, big and small, have had a huge impact on our quality of life during the past four years that we have lived in his house. Beyond Rob’s personal impact on life at 1309 South 7th Street, there are many other reasons to love the place: proximity to the quaint Old West Side neighborhood, walking distance to Pioneer and Eberwhite Woods, off-street parking, in-house free laundry, backyard and garden space. We highly recommend you take a look!
