Quality Apartments Near Southern Illinois University
G & R Rentals started out in 1960 with an idea for entering a fairly new market: affordable housing for students at Southern Illinois University.
Beginning with the family homestead on East Park Street, Tommy Glisson and his mother, Velma Halstead, built the Glisson Mobile Home Park. A lot of blood, sweat, tears, and hard work later, the Glisson and Roxanne Mobile Home Parks were flourishing.
But times and tastes change, and this small business has had to change as well. G & R Rentals now offers residential and commercial rentals in the form of Like New Apartments, mobile homes, a rental house, and commercial space in the Grand Avenue Mall.
Begun as a family owned and operated business, the tradition continues. Mr. Glisson’s partner is his son-in-law, Greg Borowitz, and they invite you to join them as part of the G & R Rentals Family. They promise you will be happy and not want to leave. So in return, while you live in the apartments at G & R Rentals, they will not raise your rent, if there is a rent increase in the apartments, for up to 4 years.
