Well-Maintained Apt and Management is Very Responsive

I've been in one of Deaktor's apartments in Mount Lebanon for two years now and have loved it! The apartment was well maintained and in a great location within the South Hills. The apartment had all of the amenities with it including A/C and in unit washer and dryer which was so important and hard to find with a lot of other willing to accommodate. If you're looking for a good company to rent from, definitely choose Deaktor and you won't go wrong!

Perfect Layout, Location, & Management

I lived in a top floor apartment in the mount Lebanon/Dormont area for 2 years and loved it! The layout was perfect and had a ton of closet and storage space. The location was also perfect as I was within walking distance to so much. It was a quiet and well managed building, the office was always quick to get back to me if I had any issues or maintenance requests. I will definitely miss it!

Shadyside apartment will be missed!

Lived in an apartment in shadyside for a year and a half, loved it. The unit was spacious, had two full bathrooms and a jetted tub I took use of. Other nice conveniences like off street parking, hardwood floors, in unit W/D, dishwasher etc. Friends often commented how much they liked the space - it was quite homey. Maintenance was quick and friendly. Working with everyone was easy. Someone was able to take care of a heating issue over the weekend.  I would have stayed if I didn’t move out of town! I will miss that apartment.

Perfect location - Amazing staff

The apartments in  Mt. Lebanon are in a perfect location, close to anything you could need and a quick drive into town. The property manager and maintenance are quick to respond and assist with anything that is needed. The garage parking, in unit laundry and dishwasher were an added bonus!”

Deaktor is Awesome

My apartment in Mt Lebanon PA was well maintained, comfortable, and convenient for almost anything. Close to the T, bars, shops, and restaurants. In unit laundry, a dishwasher, and a very nice refrigerator. Deaktor is quick to respond to issues and Gwen is an awesome property manager.

Beautiful Apartment!

The entire staff at Deaktor Development is lovely. I have rented from a lot of different companies around Pittsburgh over the years and Deaktor Development is by far the best one. The touring process was easy and quick and I have had no problems since moving in. Beautiful apartments as well!

Maintenance & management team are extremely helpful.

Renting from Deaktor Development was a great experience. The maintenance and management team are always extremely helpful and quick to fix any problem. The apartment building is also beautiful and extremely well maintained. The only reason I left was because of work. This is one of the few great property management companies!

Well maintained apartment, great company!

I leased my first apartment with Deaktor Development and it was a great experience. I saw their apartments on Zillow, gave them a call, and they immediately scheduled a showing for me to see it. They were easy to communicate with. I signed a lease the next day. The apartment has been well maintained with all updated appliances. The client service team is easy to work with and fix any minor problem I have had. This is a great property management company to rent from!

Highly recommend this company!

Very nice building - As a newcomer to Pittsburgh, I was given less than 2 weeks to relocate, settle in, and start my new position at a major city hospital. I am greatful that I found Deaktor Development. The leasing agent & management team were incredibly helpful and took all of my stress away. They made my process so easy and even made sure the utility company and cable/phone service were assisted so I was not without either at move-in. My apartment is so beautiful. Everything inside is exceptional. I highly recommend this company.

Gorgeous, but affordable!

I found the perfect apartment through them. I had just graduated from CMU and wanted to stay in Pittsburgh to start my professional career. I saw one of their listings on and from there they really showed me two beautiful apartments in the heart of Shadyside, taking all the correct COVID precautions.  These apartments were not only gorgeous but so affordable for their location. After choosing the apartment I wanted, their team was super quick with the application and lease signing process. I moved in to a clean beautiful apartment with no issues. Since then I have had little to no problems and any minor issues are always fixed by their professional maitenance team. This place is PERFECT if you want to find a beautiful new place without the usual stress of apartment hunting.

Nice Finishes & Hardwood Floors! Always Professional and Responsive!

I enjoyed the finishes in this apartment, and nice hardwood floors, granite countertops, w/d in my unit, all in good condition in a good location. There is an answering service 24/7 so even when an issue arrived in the middle of the night, it was answered and landlord showed up to take care of. They have always remained professional and responsive to needs, including to fix the washer, and for the dishwasher when needed. Lease is detailed and move out policies spelled out, although lengthy, it is the way of business today and they do follow policies in the lease.

My one bedroom apartment has a large bedroom, washer and dryer and a beautiful granite countertop kitchen.  The staff is always pleasant to work with and easy to get a hold of, either by phone or email. Gwen has always emailed me back within a few hours to help with anything. anytime something needed, fixed maintenance is scheduled to visit the next day, an deverything is fixed within a few days.  I highly recommend Deaktor Development for any young professional.
