My experience with Barron Realty was great all around. I moved back to St. Louis looking for a spacious & affordable 2br/2ba close to work & my old go-to restaurants and they had several different options in great neighborhoods. The apartment tours and move in/out process were all simple and I had nothing but friendly experiences with Max, Libby, Gordon, and the rest of their team during my time as a tenant. Any maintenance requests or ongoing questions were answered quickly & efficiently. Would highly recommend using them for anyone in the area.

5/25/2022I moved to St. Louis and found my apartment with Philip H. Barron Realty after reading many positive reviews. Words cannot truly express the gratitude I have for this family company and their staff. I moved to St. Louis with my mother who I was a caretaker for in early 2021 after she received a late-stage cancer diagnosis. We were getting her medical care at Barnes-Jewish in St. Louis—one of the best hospitals for these cases in the country. Emotionally and financially, I needed a safe, affordable, and comfortable place in the City, close to the medical campus. I could not have chosen a better place than the apartment I found with this company. The application process was streamlined and stress-free. This was important especially as I was, at the time, looking for apartments and applying while in another state. Our move-in experience to the unit was equally easy and everything was clearly spelled out in our lease. The unit itself was beautiful and situated in an amazing location where I could walk to restaurants, coffee shops, Forest Park, etc.Honestly, what could have been one of the hardest times in my life because of my mother’s sudden and serious illness turned out to be one of the best because of where my apartment was, how comfortable it felt, and how genuinely caring the staff of Phillip H. Baron are toward their tenants. I ultimately had to move to Colorado for a new job and to be closer to the rest of my family, but I will never forget my incredibly positive experiences with Philip H. Barron Realty, my apartment, and my time in St. Louis because of this company. I would suggest Philip H. Barron Realty and any of their several properties to anyone.Thank you for reading!~Khristin

I cannot speak to living in one of their buildings, but I can attest to how courteous and professional they were in courting prospective tenants. There was a miscommunication between Max and me regarding the date and time for an apartment tour. When I called the office, both he and I were shocked and honestly embarrassed. Max immediately told me not to worry and came to the site on the spot to give me the tour. He was helpful in showing me the apartment and answered all of the questions I had about the property and their company. He offered to show me other units available near my school at a time that was convenient for me. Upon the last tour, I expressed that I was so satisfied with how professional he was throughout the entire process, as searching for a *decent* apartment and landlord in St. Louis can equivalent to pulling teeth—especially for a newcomer. He made the process easier and very pleasant, and he is doing an excellent job in continuing the legacy that his grandfather started. Ultimately, I found a better deal closer to my desired location, but if I have to rent again in St. Louis, PHB Realty will be at the top of my list. Thanks, Max! — “Émile”

I am a current tenant at Philip H Barron Realty’s complex on W Pine Blvd. I have been here for about a year. I am sad to say that I am leaving my studio behind and moving to the PNW. My experience with PHB Realty has been exceptional.Since day 1, Max and Libby have always greeted me with a smile and showed compassion at key moments. For example, I accidentally no-showed my apartment viewing (I wrote the wrong time in my calendar). I called Max the same day and apologized for my mistake. Not only was he understanding, he was able to show me my now-apartment that same day, an hour later. Thank you Max!Another example is the time I came down with the Flu and then COVID about a month later. At that time, when rent was due, I would purchase a money order and drop it off to Max or Libby at the office. When I got the Flu, I messaged Libby and let her know that I would be dropping off rent a few days late. She responded quickly and was kind and understanding. I was met with the same compassion from Libby about a month later when I got COVID. Since then, PHB Realty introduced an online portal where we can pay rent and submit maintenance request tickets all in one location.Employees at PHB Realty communicate well and are efficient. After I placed maintenance requests, the tickets were resolved usually the next day. When the pull string to my overhead light broke, they replaced the fixture the next morning, as well as the roll holder in the bathroom. When the lock to my door and sink food disposal broke, Gordon was there to fix the issues the same day.The other tenants here are friendly as well. We often greet each other with a smile and a short conversation if time permits. Most of us are young professionals or students. The apartment complex and the neighborhood are very quiet. About 1-2x/month, during street cleaning days, parking gets a little rough. Although, PHB Realty offers paid parking (+$50/month) at my location in their gated yard—but it’s probably not necessary.Overall, I had a great experience with PHB Realty. Everyone here is kind and compassionate, they communicate well, and they fixed my issues within a day or two (usually within a day). I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you, PHB Realty!

My experience with Philip Barron Realty has been fantastic. If it weren’t for Max with this company, I would have not had a home or chance to move to St. Louis in August. After having visited various areas and taking photos of numerous “For Rent” signs, I called and left messages with multiple potential apartments to rent. Max called me back with options matching my interest, but not only that, he offered attention to each detail that I was looking for in a place to live, and continues to do so to this day as I potentially relocate, but of course remaining with Philip Barron! Everyone I have interacted with is kind and willing to answer questions immediately, and if not immediately, always follows up. This company offers beautiful homes, high quality and timely service, and excellent care to making it the perfect situation!

I’m so happy I stumbled upon an apartment with Philip H. Barron Realty when I was moving to STL two years ago. 10/10 the best landlords I’ve had. Hard to find good quality landlords in cities sometimes. PHB has always been responsive to any and all of my concerns or requests, and they have been incredibly accommodating both in the moving in and moving out processes. My apartment is beautiful, conveniently located, safe and well maintained. Wouldn’t be leaving except I bought my own home. Their rental rates are also quite reasonable for the areas in which their properties are located (I was in the CWE). Highly recommend!

I've lived in 2 of their apartment buildings, and each time they were super helpful and professional. They have always responded to maintenance requests within 1 day, and both apartments were really well-maintained. It's clear they care about their buildings and renters.

Philip H. Barron Realty Co. excels at the aspect of rental management where most companies fail, customer service. Whenever I had any difficulties, the employees at Philip Barron were more than happy to assist me and always with incredible timing. I often tell friends when discussing landlords that I once left a maintenance request online at 10 pm and within half an hour they were calling me to follow up on the urgency of the request. I couldn’t imagine having a better landlord during my time as a student and am happy to recommend them.

I’ve had a really positive experience living in a Barron Realty property for the past few years. They’ve been really responsive during the few maintenance issues I had, and all around just really nice and easy to deal with. I’d highly recommend them for anyone moving into the area!

I had moved to St. Louis without knowing much about the City or area. Philip H. Barron definitely made my move easier, and I ended up renting with them for five years. They are very responsive to any maintenance requests or questions and provide great prices for the area. The building I lived in was clean and maintained as promised. Renting with them was excellent, and I would recommend!

I've had a great experience with this group. Most recently, I was thrilled with the company's property manager who helped install a set of hanging shelves in my unit. The property manager, along with another maintenance worker, installed the shelves within a few days of the initial request. After talking with them, I was confident that they had the knowledge and skills to mount the wooden shelves safely (and that I definitely did not). The shelves are holding up and look great! Definitely a satisfied customer.

I've been living in Barron's studio for 1.5 years. Moved out because my parter found a job in another city. Max and the maintenance guy are awesome. I really enjoy living there.

I had a very positive experience renting from PHBR. I made a last-minute decision to move from out-of-state and upon recommendation reached out to PHBR. They worked with me to find a rental in the price range and area I was looking for. The building and unit were well maintained, felt safe and secure, and any issues or inquiries were addressed efficiently.

We faced a challenging situation needing to modify a rental agreement. The company handled it fairly and we're thankful for the professionalism of the staff. We're especially grateful to Caroline, the apartment manager at 4020 Lindell Place, who is one of the nicest and most efficient person in such a position that we have ever encountered.

I just moved out and only because I needed a bigger space. It can be nervewracking to start with a new landlord, because they can make your life horrible or wonderful. This company is the latter. I lived there for 2 years and have 0 complaints. Any maintenance request I ever put in was solved either that day or the next. The property manager was friendly and accessible. I even made some stupid mistakes during the move out process, and they were understanding and did not penalize me. It would have been very easy for them to charge me for these mistakes, and I would have deserved it, but they did not. They are by far the best realty company I've had.

I have been renting from Philip H. Baron for about two years and have had a really positive experience for that time, but I wanted to share a story to give you a sense for the type of company they are.The AC unit in my apartment went out the night before a few of the hottest days of the year. I immediately put in a request for maintenance with their office. It turns out that the entire AC unit needs to be replaced which they weren't going to be able to do before the weekend. However, within four hours of me placing the request, John and his team had put a temporary window unit in my apartment so that I could be comfortable through the weekend and is working on getting me a replacement central unit ASAP.I'm super impressed by their quick / above and beyond service, and I can't imagine renting from someone else in the region.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Philip H Barron Realty during my two-year stay in one of their properties. The apartments are beautiful and comfortable, and all of the staff are friendly and attentive on an ongoing basis. The move-in and move-out process was very smooth as well. Highly recommended!

Finishing up my first year at one of their properties, and about to resign, this is the first time I have rented with a company and had zero complaints!

Finding a good place to rent, with good property managers, is hard to come by. My experience at Brentshire Walk Executive Apartments has been fantastic. GREAT PRICE, GREAT LOCATION, CLEAN APARTMENT AND SPACIOUS. I have no reason to complain and anytime I have had issues they get back with me in a day!

Also, big thank you to Max for always being responsive. The previous review talks about being rushed. The process and experience so far has been fantastic, and I have high standards when it comes to my expectations.

I've been with PHBR for two years and the only reason I'm leaving is because my new job is out of state. They're professional landlords and respond quickly to any and all issues. My unit is bright, if a bit outdated, but I've loved living here. The unit was spotlessly clean when I moved in and the shower even had fresh shower curtains installed. I'd recommend them to anyone.

I submitted an application on behalf of my folks and I'm very hopeful. The apartment shown was perfect! I appreciate the fact that the agent didn't have another renter looking right after me. I know whoever gets the deposit in first gets the apartment, but I felt relieved that John sent me the text and got in his car and drove off somewhere else!

Hands down the most professional landlord I have ever worked with. I was a tenant for three years and was always treated well. The apartment was reasonably priced for the area (an excellent location) and the building was well-maintained. Whenever I needed something fixed, it was usually taken care of the same day. An all-around excellent experience--they've clearly earned their great reputation!

I really love my apartment with Barron Realty. John, our property manager, is an excellent communicator who kindly went out of the way to help me. They're very clear about when they'll need to be doing maintenance, which I definitely appreciate - no surprise drop-ins, and the staff is all extremely responsive. I haven't had any issues with the property itself, and if anything, management has been proactive about resolving small issues before they become building-wide concerns. Whenever building-wide maintenance has to be done, they're diligent about emailing everyone and putting up paper notices throughout the building so everyone's made well aware ahead of time.
