Please note, that in the following reports, I am listed either as "George Kanellopoulos" or "George Kanellopoulos/OSU Properties" Also, I'm not listed in the 2009 report due to the low number of student respondents in the survey.

Hello! I'm George Kanellopoulos. Welcome to OSUproperties.com!

Before you explore our website, I would like to take a couple of minutes of your time and talk about us and our properties.

My wife and I have been full time private owners/managers for 25 years in the Ohio State University campus area. Having both been OSU graduates, we strive to make a difference in student housing by providing houses and apartments that are located in some of the greatest campus locations, short walking distance to classes, they are extensively renovated, well maintained and managed. The safety and security of our tenants is of paramount concern to us and we will do everything we can to keep them safe and secure.

Most of our apartments and houses come with new cabinets and ceramic tile floors in kitchen and baths, new frost-free refrigerator (all units with 6 or more bedrooms come with 2 refrigerators), built-in microwave, dishwasher, FREE washer-dryer, central air-conditioning, courtesy mini blinds and plenty of FREE, unblocked, well-lighted off-street parking. Most of our apartments and houses also come with new insulated windows and new A/C and forced air gas furnace, which offer great comfort and big utilities savings that we are able to pass to you in the rent. The rent for all of our properties includes Gas, Electric, Water/Sewer, Exceptionally High Speed Internet (110 Mbps download/10 Mbps upload) and Extended Basic Cable TV (80+ channels), both cable and internet are upgradable at tenant's expense. You pay ONE BILL every month. No worries about whose name the utility accounts will be in, paying utility account deposits and collecting from roommates to pay the bills every month. Also, when you move in you are guaranteed to have Exceptionally High Speed Internet ready to go, so you can move on with your busy student life.

Because we care about our tenants' safety, no smoking is allowed inside our properties. In addition, no candles and no electric, charcoal or gas grills, as well as no fire pit, or open flames of any kind are allowed anywhere on the premises. Also, in all our properties, we provide a fire extinguisher for each floor, a smoke/fire alarm in each bedroom in addition to one on every floor landing, a carbon monoxide detector on any floor where there is a bedroom, as recommended by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and a fire escape ladder for all 3rd floor bedrooms that do not have access to an existing built-in fire escape or to a 2nd stairwell. Also, in most of our units the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are hardwired and interconnected. We also provide exterior electronic keypad locks and a chain lock on all exterior doors of all our properties.

We employ a full-time, well qualified, well paid, dedicated, trustworthy and courteous maintenance crew, including a licensed electrician, and use several licensed sub-contractors (plumbers, carpenters, roofers, heating/cooling technicians) whom we have been using for years, each one of them being the right, qualified person for the specific job.

We are in the advantageous position to be able to claim, that we have no deferred maintenance on any of our properties and that we can promise our tenants, as also stated in paragraph 25 of our lease, that any regular (non-emergency) maintenance requests, entered on our website on a weekday, will be addressed within 24 hours from being entered, most of the time within a few hours. Of course, any emergency requests will be addressed immediately, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We strongly believe, that if an apartment or house is not good enough for our daughters or son to live in, it is not good enough for you either. We also promise you that we will treat you with the same care and respect with which we would treat our children, would they live in one of our properties.

So, if you are a student, or a group of students, who wish to live in a well managed, well maintained, high-quality property, where you can concentrate on your school work and not worry about your housing maintenance/management problems, and you feel that you can take care of the property, respect it and generally abide by the terms of the lease listed on this website, then you have knocked on the right door. Please contact us, you and your parents will be glad you did!

Thank you for your time and good luck on your apartment or house search.
