My parents lived here for a year after having a horrible experience at the Eaves in Rancho Penasquitos. The management here was great from the beginning. Their apartment was also great and the area is very nice and convenient. I would… Full Review ▶

It took a few days to get approved for this apartment. But after moving in I realized why. They do a full back ground Check on all the Tenants and I fell so safe at this location. Everyone is so Friendly… Full Review ▶

I'm shocked by some of the reviews below. The Jefferson at Carmel Mountain Ranch has without a doubt the best office & maintenance staff I have ever been privileged to enjoy. During my two-year lease, the staff became the closest of… Full Review ▶

Everything is horrible about this place and we still have 2 months left. We are treated like second rate humans. Nothing ever got done. The staff is on a high horse and only gives attention to prospective tennants. So you will… Full Review ▶

At Jefferson Carmel Ranch... as a resident, I've been treated as if I am living as a high rise owner in Manhattan. Always greeted by the professional office staff and maintenance with superior customer service and respect. If you are looking… Full Review ▶

Moved in the year before last.. and I've been pretty happy with the place. I live in an apartment with a staircase actually on the inside so I don't hear my neighbors as much as some other people do. Everyone pretty… Full Review ▶

The apartments are designed such that the noise from one unit travels into the hallway well. I can hear my neighbors' laundry machines (which must be provided by the tenant) when they are running. The trash solution is very bad. Trash… Full Review ▶

The complex itself is nice. However, the current management is horrible - non-responsive to important maintenance issues, they don't enforce ANY of the rules, and they act like it's a big deal to do anything for you. Dallas and Cindy should… Full Review ▶

Don't move here. They will hike up your rent much more than is reasonable. Good tenants should be rewarded, not punished with high rate increases. Full Review ▶

The management is actively posting reviews here- like the 3 reviews from 10/07, please- no one is fooled.

The maintenance staff and management is rude. They spent 100k remodeling their office, meanwhile they hike up our rent.

They hook you with the seemingly great "move-in" rates, but in reality they just charge more than anyone else around. They refuse to show you the actual apartment you are moving into if its currently being cleaned, so you really have… Full Review ▶

Why would you pay this much to live here; mainly because they are one of the very few that allow you to have pets and live in an upper class neighborhood.

God forbid a neighbor should complain about you. Management will immediately issue a "lease violation" statement without investigating the complaint in the slightest. Find a place where someone actually cares about you! Full Review ▶
