Issa Properties was founded on the premise that bigger is not necessarily better.
Our focus is not on quantity, but rather on the quality of service and care we can provide to our tenants on a daily basis.
One-on-one interaction with our tenants is our number one priority at Issa Properties. It’s our goal to make your stay with us as comfortable, convenient, and relaxing as possible. We look forward to having the opportunity to work with you regarding your housing needs.
Previous tenants severely neglected the property (trash, broken glass and rusting screws) as they cared about partying the life out of a beautiful old building. They effectively manipulated me into believing their side of the story and… More put shame on the University I love by disrespecting the community at large..
Having met with the second generation of the ISSA who own our property and as a former student I wholeheartedly believe they are exactly the kind of people we need to fix the housing crisis we all face. They have been through major transitions recently but you can see how much effort they're putting in to modernize and maintain their building.
ISSA serves the community not just the high turnover student population, as a student I think they're a great option for a less "studenty" place as they are very encouraging of maintenance (I'm a traditional woodworker).
I spent two years looking for an apartment in Ann Arbor, and the best I saw without ludicrous rent were all from Issa Properties. I spent nearly two years living at 912 Brown, and had fewer issues than at any other apartment I've lived… More in. I readily recommend Issa when talking about apartments and landlords. My experience may be somewhat unique, however. Speaking with other Issa tennants, my impression is that their converted single family homes are no better than those other landlords possess. The actual apartment buildings seem great, though. No, they're not on par with these new luxury high rises built for UM students using their loans to cover rent - but they are far and above better than near-downtown alternatives at price points even remotely similar. For example, a coworker used to pay over $700 / month for a 100 sq ft room in a run down house, and then owed utilities above that, and had no access to parking or other "extras." At 912 Brown, not even half of a mile further away from UM than her apartment, my rent was $950, for 850 sq ft, two parking spots, and utilities included. Bonus: The company and its staff were always incredibly nice - as an example: One day, I was running late for a train, and the owner of the company drove me to the Amtrak station! Your mileage may vary, but my experience with Issa was better than what I've had with any of the other three landlords I've dealt with in Michigan.
