Resident Reviews

submitted by Chad D. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — I've enjoyed my time so far here. Nice community and staff. Very attentive to work orders and questions for new residents. Definitely recommend
response from property -Thank you so much for the positive feedback!
submitted by Brittany P. - |Recommended: YesBest Apartment — I’ve lived in so many apartment communities with corporate management. The Barrett was the best by far. The staff is so helpful and accommodating of every request. There’s no silly nitpicking or quoting of corporate policies for everything. The apartments are beautiful and the building and grounds are well-kept. I’m sad to be leaving, but would recommend The Barrett to any friends or family looking to rent.
response from property -Brittany, this is such a nice review. Thank you so much.
submitted by Melissa H. - |Recommended: YesWe love The Barrett The interior seems more like a boutique hotel than a typical apartment building. It has such character and a great library for tenants to enjoy. The apartments are just as charming. We also have been very impressed with the kindness and attentiveness of the staff both Kristen and Chance . I highly recommend.
response from property -Melissa, we are so glad you are enjoying your home!
submitted by Carly S. - |Recommended: YesOne of the best apartments I've lived in — I lived at the Barrett Apartments for the past three years while completing residency at Nationwide children's hospital. The location can't be beat. You are within walking distance to Schiller park, fox in the snow and the plant store stump. German village is a beautiful place to live and the Barrett provided a dog friendly place for me to enjoy the area. The staff are incredibly helpful and always willing to assist you when things go wrong. The maintenance folks are incredibly kind and responsive. I had to leave Columbus for fellowship, but I will really miss the Barrett Apartments. I even ran into issues with my moving company not arriving on time and the folks at the front desk worked with me to change my move out date. I already miss living at the Barrett.
response from property -Carly, we really appreciate your kind words. Thank you so much for this review!
submitted by Nicole S. - |Recommended: YesClean, quiet and well maintained property. A very peaceful place to live — Nice community, pretty quiet, and premises are kept very clean and well maintained. Apts themselves are very nice and layouts storage is good.
response from property -Thank you so much for the review! We appreciate the kind words.
submitted by Jordan B. - |Recommended: YesLOVE the Barrett — Our favorite part of living at the Barrett is the staff. When we were sick the staff went above and beyond from retrieving our mail, making accommodations for trash, helping us with a broken car window, and gifting us an awesome little plant. Those small gestures that may have just been part of the job meant the world us and helped make our isolation bearable. No other apartment I have lived in has ever been so gracious to their residents and it is truly appreciated.
response from property -Thank you so very much for this review. We really appreciate it.
submitted by Alyssa-Claire M. - |Recommended: YesGreat location and staff — Overall, this is a wonderful place to live The two-floor townhome is a great size and the balcony is definitely a plus. The location is great and it is such a joy to live so close to Schiller Park. It is still an apartment complex in some ways, which is evident when I can hear upstairs neighbors footsteps and next-door neighbors open and close their doors. There are a lot of dog-owners in the complex and in the neighborhood and most are good about picking up after their dogs, but I do often have to be careful when walking through the grass just next to my building to avoid stepping in dog poop.
response from property -Thank you for the review!
submitted by William C. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — I have been happy with my choice to live here.

submitted by Christopher K. - |Recommended: YesBeautiful historic site in great neighborhood. — The grounds and units are absolutely stunning, and the neighborhood is to die for. It is a quiet, young, dog-friendly community.
response from property -Thank you, Christopher!
submitted by Joanna R. - |Recommended: YesSuch a cool place — I have been so impressed with the helpfulness of the staff, their willingness to be flexible, and answer all of our questions. The apartment itself is so unique and unlike anywhere else I am obsessed with our big windows, tall ceilings, and original features from the school. I love this place
response from property -Thank you, Joanna!
submitted by Sarah G. - |Recommended: YesI love this place — I LOVE living at the Barrett The staff is friendly and incredibly accommodating helpful. The building is gorgeous and I love the character.
response from property -Thank you, Sarah! We appreciate your review.
submitted by Kaitlin F. - |Recommended: YesFirst few months review — It's a very clean and safe place to live. The residents and staff are nice, respectful and very helpful. Any time I've had a maintenance issue, it is quickly resolved. One thing I would want to change is rent cost because it's often that you hear your neighbors sneezing, coughing, etc. and any time they close a kitchen cabinet or their laundry doors. In addition to that annoyance, the apartment complex doesn't offer amenities that are available at other apartment complexes pool, gym, resident business center . Also I believe the pet rent is outrageous, especially for someone who wishes to rescue an endangered pet at a local shelter. If a person is looking for a quiet and respectful place to live the Barrett is a great option for them.
response from property -Thank you for the review, Kaitlin.
submitted by Joshua Z. - |Recommended: YesGreat maintenance and great apartments — The Barrett apartments feel very upscale with nice touches everywhere. It was easy to get an assigned parking spot and having a garage in German Village is huge. The only thing I did not like about it was the Corporate feel of Casto. I have rented with Real Estate companies and from individual owners and individual owners are definitely aside from maintenance issues which are a dream with Casto to get fixed better as they care about your situation and will work with you. With Casto, it is all strict and there is no give, even if you are in a desperate situation. But otherwise, it was a great place to live.
response from property -Thank you for the review!
submitted by Nicklaus C. - |Recommended: YesVery Enjoyable Community — Had a great experience living in our townhome. The only negatives we experienced were incredibly noisy neighbors constantly playing loud music well into the night and artificially expensive parking spaces in the lot. There was always ample parking so this wasn’t a major concern but asking for 100 a month for parking in Columbus is a bit absurd. All in all, we loved our stay in The Barrett, however. We would have continued to live there had we not been moved out of the city.
response from property -Thank you for the review, Nicklaus.
