Hear what our tenants have to say…
The staff at EIG Property Management is always friendly and professional.
I have had a great experience renting from EIG Property Management.
I love the community at my building and recommend EIG Property Management.
As a tenant, I really appreciate that EIG Property Management is always looking out for their tenants.
EIG Property Management does a great job at getting maintenance done quickly.
EIG is good to rent from. They send emails with pertinent information to tenants, so you can stay informed. They also do a decent job of responding to maintenance requests, although I would recommend being very clear about your desired results with any requests you make. They are timely responders, though, which is very helpful as a tenant. Units are decently priced and have good appliances. Attractive units in my building.
As a previous contractor I got to really know most of the management staff. They operate with professionalism and go above and beyond for their tenants. Nothing gets fixed the "quick" way. Some of the best paint jobs I have ever seen.
I have been working with EIG property management for a few years as a vendor and have always had a great experience. The property managers are professional and knowledgeable and they take care of the properties they manage. 5 stars all the way!
EIG is a great management company. Quick maintenance response time and friendly staff. I am proud to say I rent from EIG. I would recommend this company to friends and family!
Absolutely great management company. Professional management. Quick to address issues. Newly remodeled units. Will highly recommend EIG to everyone in the rental market.
I just want to personally say thank you to Nick and the rest of the helpful and friendly staff at EIG for giving my significant other and I the opportunity to rent from EIG. I was starting to lose hope, but you all gave us something to look forward to and for that, I'm forever grateful! Thank you a million times over!!
My experience was amazing!!! Tim bent over backwards to satisfy all my needs!!! I would recommend them to anyone!!!
Have rented from EIG for almost 2 years and have never had issues with management or maintenance. If something needs to be fixed it's normally done in a timely matter (unless they are backed up with requests). Bonnie is by far the most professional, friendly, understanding and compassionate Senior Property Manager I have ever had the pleasure of working with. So for anyone paying attention to the lower star ratings, It's quite simple: be a respectful neighbor, pay your rent on time and you won't have any issues- in fact, you'll probably find that whole experience is rather enjoyable 🙂 Would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to rent in the greater twin cities area.
This management company is very and flexible nice people, and whenever I have an issue it gets fixed right away.
EIG it's the best services in city of Minneapolis thanks EiG they are good people and very good service I miss them thanks EIG Property Management.
I've been a tenant for a year and a half and I love my apt. And the management. They fix things promptly if you file a claim and they're understanding if you find yourself in a bind. Property manager is very friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend them to anyone apartment searching.
I love that I could pay my rent online. Every time I had a maintenance concern it was handled timely. I like the new owners, but I'll miss EIG.
I have rented with EIG for 3 1/2 - 4 years ! It continues to be a positive experience. EIG has done a great job selecting quality tenants; who will in turn become my neighbors at the 4-plex in which I reside. I never have to worry about damage or, theft of property in our shared basement. We all communicate and get along well together! Of course EIG have always been professionals in the property management industry i.e.: easy to reach, quick response to issues/ repairs, courteous etc.. When lease time comes around I am always eager to sign! Thanks EIG!
I really find this a good company. I go in to pay my rent. They are very friendly the staff. Would tell anyone to use them.
EIG is a great property management company. They work with people of all kinds and get you moved in quick. Thank you
