"When you're stranded at a New Haven airport because they don't have a cashier for $ exchange, the last person you expect to surprise you there is your new landlord! He made the transition SO MUCH easier. Best landlord of my life by far!"
"Long before you ever see the beautiful well-kept apartments of Haddon Hall, you will have heard the rumor. Whispered among the initiated, passed along as precious lore for a very few lucky students each year, one name stands out -- 'Arnie!' they cry 'Arnie Lehrer -- simply the best landlord in all New Haven"
"Arnold Lehrer has been a terrific landlord-always willing to take care of any problems, extremely attentive to tenants, and, just an exceptionally amiable person"
Best landlord I ever had, period. Kind, helpful, responsible, friendly. Would recommend to anyone who wants to take a little of life's everyday stresses out of graduate school."
"I've lived in 6 Lynwood for three years, all my three years of law school. I've never had a better living situation, or a better landlord. The apartments are quiet, beautiful inside, and conveniently close to campus. Arnie responds immediately to any tenant concerns, and goes out of his way to make his tenants comfortable. Last year during the hurricane or block lost power; Arnie was personally contacting the city and the power companies to lobby for our power to be restored as soon as possible. It was incredible, but not out of character. I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough."
"1214 Chapel has been a real pleasure to live at. Arnie and his staff keep the building and apartments in terrific shape and are fully devoted to their tenants. They are in the building everyday, whether just for a friendly hello or to jump on any issues. When school or life get a little crazy, it's invaluable to have the comfort of coming back to a building like 1214 Chapel. It's a great place to spend your time in New Haven."
Dear Mr. Lehrer and Mr. Magid, I just wanted to wish you a wonderful holiday season, and to say thank you for all that you do to make living at 1214 Chapel St. so nice! I really appreciate all your hard work and time you spend making sure everything is perfect around the building and in my apartment. (I love my apartment - I will be so sad when the time comes for me to move away!).
"It is has been said that Arnie is the best landlord in New Haven. I definitely agree. He is responsive, keeps the building well-maintained, and treats everyone with a high level of respect and courtesy. He set such an inspiring example that I am considering becoming a landlord myself back home after graduation. If you are moving to New Haven I recommend that you seriously consider living in one of Arnie’s buildings."
My fiance and I rented a one-bedroom from Arnie for two years while he was at Yale SOM. I have to say, after having lived in Boston and New York City, Arnie and his management team were a breath of fresh air. They were not only incredibly friendly and accommodating to whatever we needed, but were organized and were able to establish a sense of home in an otherwise temporary apartment. If anything ever needed fixing (which it rarely did), a quick phone call was dialed and someone was at the apartment within minutes. The common areas of the apartment (staircase, front entryway, laundry room & storage) were always impeccably clean. Arnie even offered to drive us home from the grocery store one afternoon! He truly does care about his tenants and it shows. I would recommend his apartments to anyone. Thanks Arnie!
If you’re looking for the best landlord in New Haven, look no further than Arnie. He offers a stellar combination of great apartments, superior service, and a genuine interest in his tenants. You will feel part of a community by living in one of his units and are unlikely to regret your decision.
As Thanksgiving was last week, I wanted to take an opportunity to say thank you to you all. You have been so kind and helpful to me and my family as I made my way to New Haven in July. It was stressful to find an apartment in CT while I was still in IN. You guys made the search so easy. I am so grateful to you all. You made the move feel less stressful and made me feel comfortable in my new home and surroundings. Not to mention, you care for my beloved cats when I am away. Thank you so much!!
I'm a current resident at 1214 Chapel Street, and I've had an absolutely wonderful time here! The landlords, Arnie, Steve and Elana, are all wonderful and super helpful. I signed my rental apartment while I was overseas -- Elana kindly took the time to Skype with me and to show me around the apartment. We settled everything while I was overseas, and everything was great when I arrived in New Haven. I'd definitely recommend staying here and would reassure anyone who is also overseas that Skype is a very good way to view the apartment.
Everyone told me that Arnie is the best landlord in New Haven, but I'm convinced Arnie must be one of the best landlords in the country. His apartments are beautiful, perfectly maintained, and Arnie and Steve go beyond expectations to offer truly excellent service to tenants. Over the course of the year, Arnie and Steve became two treasured friends who I enjoyed chatting with daily and knew I could count on always and without hesitation. Arnie also knows a tremendous amount about New Haven and the local community, which he made me feel a part of. I admire Arnie greatly and strongly recommend living in Arnie's building to anyone lucky enough to have the opportunity.
I've really enjoyed my three years living at 1214 Chapel St. while in New Haven. Arnie and Steve have been friendly and prompt to respond to any issues. They have both gone out of their way to make me feel welcomed. I am especially reminded of this past winter when I was recovering from foot surgery - they not only made sure I was getting around okay, but they would even help me do small tasks around the apartment, such as carry my laundry basket to the basement, to keep pressure off my feet. I am very grateful to have found them and this apartment and recommend them for others considering a home in New Haven!
