About Becky Powell

I'm a lawyer and property investor in the City of Buffalo. Although I'm originally from Georgia, I've called Buffalo home for 25 years. I own multiple homes on one street in the city and my partner Carl and I have worked since 2010 to make them beautiful. Our goal was to provide wonderful places for people to live and to create a community in our little part of the world. We want to share it, and our awesome city, with people who want to come visit us.

I love to travel myself, although I stay a little too busy to do it a lot. By having visitors from around the world, I can experience one of the best parts of traveling - meeting cool people - without leaving home!

Becky Powell purchased this apartment in 2010

As advertised. Nice place. Great location. Great value.

  • 5 of 5

There were few places I could find within the city to accommodate a large group. I rented both upper and lower units for a small reunion. The place is as advertised, clean, comfortable. A request to change the setting for heat/air conditioning was no problem. Plenty of parking on the street. This is on the "edge" of Elmwood Village, but a very nice street. (I'm local, and I have noticed this area is definitely on the upswing.) We found the upstairs front room was great for gathering in the evening for socializing. The downstairs dining table was a gathering spot for breakfast. We cleaned up before we left, and our deposit was promptly returned. I would definitely rent either or both units again.

Nice, summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and our friends wanted to visit Buffalo to see the falls. After reading that the American falls were the best, we decided to stay in Buffalo. The place was wonderful and exactly as listed. The only rough part was there is an apartment upstairs that is also rented and the renters clearly had an excited child as we were all woken up at 7:00 am to feet running back and forth through the apartment. Very hard to sleep through that every morning. For what we needed, it was great. But definitely look at the top apartment to rent if you are a light sleeper!

Mixed feelings about our stay, but overall very nice.

  • 4 of 5

I stood with my family for only two nights in the lower apartment. The apartment itself is very nice, spacious, and clean. A bit chilly for my liking. The owner did mention a few times to contact her anytime to adjust the thermostat via remote. However, I left a message at the wrong number. Obviously that was not her fault, but my oversight. The apartment upstairs was occupied by another family with children. The noised from the children running and playing vibrated throughout the downstairs apartment. When I finally did reach out to the homeowner at the correct number, she was very accommodating and quick to respond to our needs. Would I stay again? Definitely, but next time I think I would book the upstairs apartment instead to avoid the noise all together. I am sure it could have been an isolated incident specific to the renters above, and not a regular issue as I did not read that in any of the other reviews. Other than that, the place was everything we needed and more.
