I am a member of a fraternity at Arizona State University. One year ago, my fraternity was looking for a fraternity house. Desperate for something, we were contacted by Steve Krystofiak, who claimed be working on a project that would be like a new fraternity row on campus. He owned an apartment complex off Spence and Rural that he claimed would be incredible when we moved in. He said he was remodeling all the rooms, and was even working on acquiring the house next door and attaching the 2 places. When I asked for a tour of the inside, he would always say that they were nowhere close to ready and not worth showing. He said he was still working on acquiring the house next door as well.
Fast forward to move in day, and the place is a dump, with multiple code violations. The police who have been over said this is the worst place they've seen any fraternity live. He turned all the living rooms into bedrooms, and charges $550/month to live in a living room. [continued below]....
..... For much less than that, you can get a 500 sq ft apartment to yourself down the street. Everyone hates the place, and so do their parents.
The other fraternity managed by him feels the same way. Anyone considering renting from this guy, DON'T!!!! Guess what, if you go to any nice apartment by campus, and you talk to the owner and offer 100% occupancy with your fraternity, they'll do it. And then you'll actually get a nice place. I would literally pay people not to live here, it's that bad. No one should have to live in a place like this. Steve Krystofiak should be avoided at all costs. Even his own fraternity that he is an alumnus of think he is a scum bag and won't rent from him. Drive by the complexes he owns on Stanley St and ask anyone that lives there what they think. You will get angry responses 100% of the time. I hope this guy ends up in jail.
