Testimonials

O. Umolu – July 2021

It was a really good stay. It’s a nice location, near the heart of Buffalo. There are tons of bars and restaurants that you can easily walk to. The rental management is very fair and I never had any issues with them. And If you need any help on site, Dwyane(the caretaker) is super helpful, I can’t praise him enough!

M. J. Ream – June 2021

As a transplant to Buffalo, I was thrilled with my experience at the lofts on St. Louis Place. The neighborhood was surprisingly quiet given its central location in the heart of Buffalo. I was I able to walk to my office in Fountain Plaza as well as countless restaurants and bars downtown, in Allentown, and even on Elmwood (if I was feeling up for a nice long walk). Paul was the most attentive and accommodating landlord I’ve ever had, and Dewayne was always responsive and frequently on site to monitor the weekly cleaning and for any other maintenance needs. I would highly recommend this building to anyone in the market for a new apartment.

Zach and Brittany – March 2021

Renting with Paul Smith and Lofts Buffalo was a fantastic experience. The apartments are top quality and in a great location. Their prices are reasonable, and the buildings are well maintained, thanks to their very friendly groundskeeper. It was a wonderful place to live. If you are considering renting in downtown Buffalo, we highly recommend considering the lofts on St. Louis Pl. by Lofts Buffalo.

A. McMahon – July 2020 

Moving cross-country, we actually rented our unit without seeing it in person and we feel so lucky that we found Lofts Buffalo. The building and the apartment itself are extremely unique and full of character. You reap the benefits of living in a historical home from the hardwood floors and the exposed brick walls, but with the advantage of a tastefully renovated kitchen and bathroom. My husband and I love being so centrally located, we are able walk to work in the medical center while being steps away from anywhere in Allentown and Downtown. Dwayne is the most phenomenal building employee, from clearing snow and salting 24/7 in winters to helping me change my car battery, he really does do it all while keeping the property in tip-top shape. Paul and the management team are extremely helpful and always quick with communication, thanks for making St. Louis Place our home!

C. Campanella – May 2020   

Just reaching out to thank you and the rest of BREV for being great landlords over the past year. Moving into my first apartment was definitely a nerve wracking experience, but your company made the transition really easy for me.

Dwayne’s a really great maintenance guy who truly cares about the people who live at the St. Louis complex. The property has always been clean and well maintained. During one of my first nights here, I locked myself out of my apartment and Dwayne drove across town to let me back in despite it being 9:30 PM on a Friday. You can’t put a price on that.

Alina and I made a deal with the furniture so I’ll be leaving the following items behind:
– Kitchen Table
– Couch
– Upstairs Rug
– Bar Stools (x2)
– Portable Air Conditioner

When the economy recovers and my next lease it up for renewal, I’ll reach out to hopefully snag one of these apartments again. Thanks for believing and investing in Buffalo!

C. Mcmahon – July 2021

I lived at 18 St. Louis Place for 3 years while working at the medical center nearby. I moved out for a new job. The historic building is located on a pretty Allentown street with easy access to downtown. There are tons of good restaurants in the area within walking distance. There is parking reserved for residents, as well as street parking directly in front of the building. The units are updated inside and I found the other building residents to be quiet and respectful. Management is extremely helpful and receptive to questions. Special thanks to Dwayne the property manager and his family for keeping the property in pristine condition all year round. Highly recommend to anyone looking to live in the Allentown/Downtown area of Buffalo.

C. Chai – June 2021

I had a great experience living at Lofts Buffalo after moving there for the first time. The furnished apartment was in nice shape and provided a modern feeling living inside. As well, the rent was very reasonable for the location and the accommodations. Paul was a fantastic landlord, answering all my questions about the move and fantastic with communication. Dwayne was amazing on the Buffalo side, always available for any issues that came up at the apartment and kept the property in top shape all year around. Overall, they provided me with a great stay in Buffalo and I would highly recommend this property to live in.

For a review I would say they’re charming apartments in a great location. I never had a problem with my neighbors and overall it was a great experience living there.

C. Sessions – June 2020

This apartment was by far my favorite place I’ve ever lived in Buffalo! The building has beautiful finishes and the apartment is very comfortable – you don’t hear the neighbors at all. Plus, there is plenty of free parking in the area at any time of day. The management does a fantastic job with communication, repairs, and cleaning the common area weekly. I would highly recommend this for your new home!
