University of Rochester student Laurel Li said "I have rented from Joe at 190 Lattimore Rd since last July. He is a very responsive landlord and is willing to work things out depending on your need. He is also very helpful whenever there is an issue in the house. When the need arose, Chris from his maintenance staff would be over to fix stuff for us in timely manner. The place I live at is very safe and convenient to U of R. It is adjacent to bus stops, convenience stores, and many restarants. As a student at University of Rochester, I think you can live there well without a car.d
There was once I forget to pay rent on time. And he reminded me thru text, but didn't charge me late fee. I'm not saying you should pay rent late, one must do what the contract says, I'm just saying he is very nice and flexible. I would recommend anybody who is looking for a safe place and a helpful, friendly landlord to rent from Joe!"

"I am a PhD dental student at UofR from Brazil.
When I still was in Brazil I started looking for houses close to UofR for my 1-year internship in Rochester . I then found one of Joe's houses on 148 Weldon St. I had seen only pics of the house, but I trusted Joe and signed the 1-year contract. It's been 9 months since I got here and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Great location, perfect housing conditions, neighborhood is safe (lots of student living in this area), each room of the house is well equipped (kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, even the basement). The most advantageous part of the story is that I pay considerably less than my other friends living in the same area. I usually bike to UofR medical center and it takes me only 8 minutes to get there. Awesome! I'm leaving soon to Brazil, but anytime I come back to Rochester I'll certainly get in contact with Joe."
University of Rochester student L.S. said, "I have lived at one of Joe’s properties and the 4 bedroom house is located very close to UR. This location is great as you can walk to school, Strong Hospital and close to retail shops located on Mt Hope Ave. In regards to renting, the place is ideal, convenient and you can pay rent via chase quick pay that comes out of your checking account so you don’t have to mail out a check each month. You can reach Joe easily via text, email or phone if needed. There is a garage that will let you fit 4 cars in the driveway as well which is important as parking near the U of R is hard sometimes."
