Review of Kaufmann Properties by Jan Sucks

Review of Kaufmann Properties – near the University of Kentucky, 40503

Rating: 1 out of 5.

“I’m writing this from the experience of 2 friends. Jan is the manager at Kauffman properties. She is a stone cold hateful woman who says she won’t lease to boys. She won’t let you store anything in the basement. She drives by or has other people drive by to check on what you’re doing and its creepy. She also has to have monthly check ins on your apartment. She will tell you she’s coming in a day or so but when she gets there she barges right in without knocking. She used her own key. Obviously she’s not allowed to open anything but it’s still annoying that she has to do monthly check ins on 22 year olds. If you’re worried about your tenants then don’t rent to college kids.. ya know. She will also get pissed if the tiniest bit of your wheel is off the gravel and in the grass. Other people have told me that when their friend stopped out front with a dog that she thought the tenants had snuck a dog on the property. So she tried to fine them. When my friends mother tried to contact her about specifics Jan told her she can only speak to the tenant… which doesn’t make sense since her mom pays the bills and was asking simple questions. She also said she would fine you $25 for every unnecessary email she received and take it from your deposit. She’s a roach and I have told every single one of my friends to literally rent from ANYBODY else. She has those yellow signs mostly in the campus areas of University, State Street, Elizabeth and some on Fontaine. Avoid the Kauffman’s.”

  1. Thankfully, Jan isn’t the Property Manager anymore! I’ve rented with Kaufmann for 3 years and Jan and I had our share of run-ins. There is a woman named Alli working there now and she will actually have a conversation with you.
