"I absolutely love my apartment at the Hovey Lofts!"

I absolutely love my apartment at the Hovey Lofts! It was definitely the best apartment for the price on all of campus. I haven't had any issues with them. There employees are super helpful too! Meg helped us find the perfect apartment! She was so patient and really worked with our needs.

"Love all the free gear Young America always gives out!"

Love all the free gear Young America always gives out! Their staff is great too; very friendly and always helpful. I had Meg as my realtor when I was looking around campus for an apartment and she was the best! Very knowledgeable about the area and helped me decide on what apartment was right for me. I highly recommend Young America to anyone looking for a place to live around campus.

"Young America bent over backwards to correct an unfortunate situation"

Young America bent over backwards to correct an unfortunate situation with a managed rental property. They researched and presented alternatives then followed thru until the situation was resolved. They did a great job! Thank you.

"Definitely the best value for my dollar."

I rent a residential apartment not a student apartment and I LOVE it!. The staff in the office is so quick to respond to my calls and emails. The maintenance staff is always prompt with my requests. I absolutely love my apartment! The w/d were included vs other places in town that wanted me to rent a w/d for the unit. Definitely the best value for my dollar. Wouldn't rent from anyone else in town.

"5 stars forever and ever."

Now that I am graduating and beginning to deal with realty companies and landlords other than Young America, I realize how great we all have it at Illinois State. Young America has the greatest, nicest properties, including the Lodge where I lived for 2 years. The student leasing agents are always so helpful and so willing to help and to make all the technical talk of leasing easy to understand. Any time we put in a service maintenance request, it was fixed within a couple days, but even sooner if it was urgent. If there's ever a misunderstanding or mistake about a fee or anything at all, all you have to do is call them and they will take care of the problem. You can tell they appreciate all of their tenants because they are constantly giving away tickets to various events, gift cards, free food, etc. 5 stars forever and ever.

"Signing with Young America was the best decision I could have made"

Signing with Young America was the best decision I could have made when searching for the right apartment. All of the employees are very personable and eager to help answer all of my questions. Their maintenance is very helpful as well, all my requests are usually taken care of within days of entering the request! I have no complaints.

"This is a perfect example on why they have the best customer service"

I was in search of an apartment at the last second for the next school year and did not think I would be able to find one. Darien Jacobs was able to help me out right away and he instantly provided me with locations that fit my criteria. This is a perfect example on why they have the best customer service out of all the realty companies around the Bloomington/Normal area. They are quick to resolve problems.

"couldn't be happier with the service I have received."
This is my first year having my own apartment and couldn't be happier with the service I have received. Young America has been very accommodating to anything we need. I had a few questions on how to go about getting things fixed for my apartment and Brit Idler was able to help with everything. She put in a maintenance request for me and the next day I had someone at my apartment fixing whatever needed to get done. Brit was easy to talk to and very helpful with all of my questions!

"Literally the most nicest and helpful staff of people I have ever experience."

I was not sure if I was going to rent my first apartment through First Site or Young America. I went into Young America's office, and talked to them and they showed me all my available options. Literally the most nicest and helpful staff of people I have ever experience. I immediately wanted to sign my first apartment through Young America! Darien Jacobs was the employee who helped me out the entire way and he was so helpful and nice. He was able to answer all the questions I had about the apartment. Since then, every time I had to go into their office, he has been there assisting me with whatever it is. I love young america and their apartments and I already re-signed my apartment with them for next year!!

"Having our own garage was the best thing during the winter."

Meg Morehead helped me find the best apartment my senior year. The Lofts on Hovey and Samantha were amazing and I never had a problem with it. Having our own garage was the best thing during the winter. Couldn't thank Meg enough!

"I never expected such great customer service or ability from a college realty company."

I came to ISU knowing nothing about the campus or its living situations. After being recommended to look into YA I am in an amazing apartment with great roommates. Could not have done it without the help of Taylor, one of their employees. This year my roommates and I wanted a bigger place. I knew that Taylor would be the best person to help us and immediately contacted YA, asking to talk to her. That same day, she found us exactly what we were looking for and more. I never expected such great customer service or ability from a college realty company. Thanks again for all the help Taylor!!

"Great place to lease your apartment!"

Great place to lease your apartment! Have lived in a YA apt for 3 months now and already resigned for next year. No complaints. Special shoutout to Alex Persons, best leasing rep I've ever worked with. He knows his stuff and always open to helping out with questions about YA and my apt. YA is the way to go.

"They take pride in their community"

Young America Realty is AMAZING! During my time at Illinois State, I lived at Willow trails and their service was outstanding. Not only that, but the company truly cares about their residents. For two years they have donated to our Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K team. They take pride in their community and are continuously seeking out opportunities to provide help to the Normal, IL area. They are WONDERFUL!!
