I am a graduate student at ODU and have rented from Councill Realty in Norfolk for almost 3 years and they have been very responsive to all my problems. I have had a few bug problems but this is a big building and they have always sent someone right away to spray or treat the problem. If you have a problem Ellen or Leslie are on top of it.I would reccomend them.

The worst rental agency I have ever come accross. Their listings are cheaper but they will rape you out of extra money throughout your lease. Roach infestation. Old dirty apartment buildings that are falling apart. Dont even bank on getting your deposit back. And Leslie. Avoid her at all costs. Her life is so miserable that she tries to make your life miserable. Trust me. Stay Away!!!!!! I will never look back. Ever.

Horrible!!!!!!!! I live with a roommate, with it being only the two of us on the lease, my roommate has had her son in the apartment for weeks now, all he does is suit smoke weed, cigarettes, and drink, and had gotten into my face when I hasn't even said a weird to him, threatening me and my 6 month old daughter, I went to the office to complain multiple times, and every time I got the same "theres nothing we can do about it" councill reality would rather have money than to make sure the actual people on the lease are safe!!!!!! The management definitely needs some serious work. STAY AS FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN!!!!!

Leslie Councill is very rude. Never calls back when you leave messages. And when you get the person on the phone, will come-up with stupid excuses to avoid talking to you. Apartment in 1055 48th St is infested with roaches and bed bug. They don't bother to eradicate the bugs. In terms of trash littering around the building -- they took out the trash can, so people just drop the letters/mails on the ground. very dirty place. The owner is GRAY (same guy who owns Gray Pharmacy on Hampton Blvd). These slumlords are scum.

Leslie Councill is the rudest person I've ever seen in my life. The apartments in 1049 49th St are severely infested with bed bugs and management couldn't care less! Don't let the cheap rents lure you into this hell-hole, it doesn't worth the everlasting torment of living in this dark abyss.
