Very Accommodating

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and hard work this year. VF Properties was so easy to work with, very accommodating, and the best landlord I've had in Worcester.

- N.F.

Management Team is Great

I think your management team is great and very understanding with the troubles us college students can come across. I enjoyed my stay.

- N.L.

Wonderful Experience

I've had a wonderful experience renting from you, as I move on I can only hope that my next landlord will be your equal.

- D.M.

I Loved the Apartment

I loved the apartment, it's nice and close to WPI. Both Ray and Nick were quick to address problems that we were having with anything. Having Garbage and recycling taken to the street was definitely nice.

- M.K.

Great Experience

I would like to say that I have had a great experience with V.F. Properties and would not hesitate to recommend it.

- Valeria K.


V.F. Properties is the most pleasant, professional, and accommodating group I have rented from during my time as a student in Worcester.

- Brandon S.

Another Fantastic Year

Thank you for another fantastic year! VF properties is quickly becoming known for having the nicest apartments on campus! The apartments are clean, cozy, and the service is great. Whenever we have needed Nick he has been there right away especially with the security alarm issue. This downside is small and has not effected my great experience with vf. I hope you have a great Summer and I look forward to staying on with you next year!

- Jack P.

The Team Has Been Fantastic

I Highly Recommend V.F. Properties

I was impressed with the apartment as soon as I stepped onto the premises. The building is very well maintained and the staff are all very friendly. The property owners work to make your life easy - they equip you with all the information you need to know, and will even offer services that many other apartments don't (such as valet waste service). They also take security very seriously and I never once felt unsafe in my apartment or leaving my car in the parking lot. The location was convenient being so close to campus, and I swear the windows were sound-proofed because the weekend-night buzz never bothered my sleep. Safe, comfortable, quiet, and proximal to campus, I would highly recommend VF Properties apartments to anyone seeking housing in the Worcester area.

- Assaf

Definitely Recommend

I have been very happy with my residence on Goulding. When I initially viewed the apartment, I was pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness and condition of the apartment. Everything from the granite counter tops to the wall-mounted television elevate the sense of quality. The furniture looks great and is, most importantly, comfortable. I would definitely recommend V.F. Properties to anyone I know!

- RiAnna M.

Spacious and Newly Renovated

The apartment was spacious, newly renovated, and very well maintained. Before moving our daughter in, we visited the location and were very impressed with the property Manager, Ray. He was willing to address our concerns as well as make necessary changes such as providing all new locks for all the apartments in the building including the front door. The fresh paint, updated appliances, and well-lit off-street parking lot are comforting to us. VF Properties' apartments are located in safe neighborhoods.

- Andrea W.

I Couldn't Be Happier

The quality of the apartments are so nice and I couldn't be happier that I chose to rent from VF Properties. I feel extremely safe and at home in my apartment. The service is great and I know that if there is a problem, I can always rely on VF Properties to take care of it immediately.

- Kelly R.

Highly Recommended

I also wanted to take the time to thank you! I have been very satisfied with VF, with the apartment and services you provided during my stay. I will highly recommend you all to future tenants.

- Justine B.

Highest value for the best price

I moved to Massachusetts from Ohio for an internship, and the team at VF properties made the move-in process hassle free. I've rented from three different apartments and lived in five on-campus dorms in my college experience, and VF Properties provided the highest value for the best price. The customer service provided by Ray, Nick, and the whole team at VF Properties was outstanding and consistently exceeded my expectations. I would recommend VF Properties to any college student seeking high-quality housing for the academic year in the Worcester area.

- Michael P.

Provide Quality Apartments

VF Properties has been truly accommodating in all aspects of the apartment rental process. They have been able to provide quality apartments and work hard to improve the renter's experience.

- Mike P.

Very spacious and nicely furnished

My son has been living in an apartment owned by VF Properties for the past 3 years while he's been a student at WPI. In addition to being within walking distance to WPI, the apartment is very spacious and nicely furnished with new appliances and furniture as well as a security system. The VF Properties staff has gone out of their way to make his whole experience as a renter hassle-free! From providing easy payment methods to around-the-clock attention to any maintenance repairs that were needed, VF Properties always had my son's apartment as a top priority. I always felt secure knowing that he was in good hands!! I would highly recommend one of VF Properties' apartments to anyone looking to live off campus! You won't find a nicer selection of apartments or a more dedicated staff than those of VF Properties! It has been a great experience for my son!

- Lori B.

Newly Refurbished Apartments

As a parent of a V.F. Properties tenant, I can say that I was thrilled with the condition of the apartment! They are newly refurbished and the furnishings are quite nice. The interactions I have had with the property management team have all been very positive. I feel confident that they will handle any problem that may arise with the apartment. The entire team has made the process of renting an apartment very easy for us, and we definitely plan to return for another year.

- K.H.

Well-Equipped Apartments

The apartment my friend and I rented is very spacious and well-equipped with modern appliances and an alarm system. More importantly, though, we had to look for an apartment from overseas before coming to Clark University. We are from Germany. The team from V. F. Properties was extremely forthcoming in allowing for flexible solutions to signing the lease as well as deposit/first month's rent payment as they helped us navigate all the necessary formalities unfamiliar to us. I would choose V. F. Properties again every time.

- Julia C.

Easy, Clean, and Comfortable

I have only positive things to say about my time on Florence Street as a result of V.F Properties and their commitment to make me feel at-home. The team at V.F Properties goes above and beyond to make sure all of their tenants have a great experience by not only offering apartments at a great value, but consistently working to improve the tenant experience. The V.F team even works with local businesses to provide their tenants' discounts. I was happy that V.F Properties made my move easy by allowing me to move into a clean apartment equip with quality furniture. I would highly recommend V.F Properties to anyone interested in moving to the area and can assure them it is the best option at the best price!
