We have lived here for over a year. About 8 months ago, the place has gone downhill drastically. Now it???s more of a frat house with young, ignorant, disrespectful tenants. ??? Garbage in the halls ??? Garbage thrown on my car… Full Review ▶


I highly recommend Briar Brook apartments. I lived here for a year and a half in a 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment. We loved it and honestly regret moving out of Briar Brook since our experience at recent apartment complexes has been… Full Review ▶


I have lived at this complex for over 3 years. I have nothing but great things to say. The clubhouse and pool deck are amazing. You feel like you are at a resort everytime you enter. I would be in there… Full Review ▶


Edited 10/2013: While living here, I have seen a great many changes, all of which were not for the better. Management has changed from Village Green (who I loved) to Westdale. In that time, 4 people have quit in the office,… Full Review ▶


I have lived in this apartment less than a week and I can already tell you that this complex is amazing! Do you hear dogs and people every now and then? Of course, it's an apartment building, get over it! If… Full Review ▶


We lived in Briarbrook Village from Jan 2012 to July 2013 and I have never had a better go at apartment living than this one! From the wonderful kitchen to the great shopping and school district everything was exceptional. Advantages 1.… Full Review ▶


Unfortunately I lived on the bottom floor thinking the was the best, but I had ants and a mouse....I am a very clean person so that grossed me out. Some how the mouse was in a cabinet high up above the… Full Review ▶


I have lived at Briarbrook for 6 years with my family. The noise people are complaining about is aparmtent life. We hear the people upstairs from us when they are vacuuming or walking heavy, but otherwise, it's quiet. The neighbors downstairs… Full Review ▶


I have been a resident at Briarbrook for about a year and half and have enjoyed living in this community very much. Joni, Cindy, Jennifer and all the clubhouse staff have been friendly, outstanding and helpful with any request I have… Full Review ▶


Do not rent here. It is a dump. Looks great on paper, but disgusting living accomodations once you sign on the dotted line. RUN! RUN FAST! Full Review ▶


No no no! Do not move here! The apartment is expensive and small. Everything is old and broken, although they do try and fix things when you need them to. The walls have layers upon layers of paint... It very tacky… Full Review ▶


I moved in October of 2010 and lived here for one year with my boyfriend! This is honestly the best place we ever rented! The staff were great, the grounds were beautiful and I felt safe and loved the surrounding area!… Full Review ▶


My wife and I have lived at Briarbrook for over 3 years and have found to be a good place. Most residents are friendly and respectful of living in close contact with neighbors, we even BBQ with some of our neighbors… Full Review ▶


My husband and I have lived here for almost 3 years and we love it. I remember in the very first week, we had maintenance over to show us a few things and they were very friendly and responsive. They always… Full Review ▶


The title says it all... THE GOOD: The location is pretty good relative to I-88, I-355, and IL 53. The grounds crew does a great job, and maintenance is very responsive. New management just took over and is putting a lot… Full Review ▶


I'll start with the positives - The Inside of the Apartments are nice - Most people are older and quiet Here are the negatives - Ever little noise from the hall way is heard. You can hear your neighbors deadbolt and… Full Review ▶


This apartment had nearly everything I wanted: open kitchen, laundry in unit and newer appliances. My boyfriend and I could afford the larger one bedroom with the walk in closet, but we loved the open kitchen and bigger bathroom. Only problem… Full Review ▶


My fiance and I went to a dozen apartments in Glen Ellyn and Wheaton and found Briar Brook Village the best one of them all. First, the layout of the apartment complex is beautiful. The grounds are well-maintained and the ponds… Full Review ▶


I have lived here for a while now and I love this place, unfortunately I need to move closer to where I work otherwise I would be staying here. Friendly people that live here, amazing staff, and maintenance was very quick… Full Review ▶


Very neat and well maintained grounds, very exceptional staff. I had an absoultely great living experience here.. Full Review ▶


I've lived here for over a year and half and the property is very nice. All the apartments have new appliances, carpet etc. Probably the best part of living here is the 24/7 workout facility and business center, both are top… Full Review ▶


Ive lived at BriarBrook village almost three years and never thought about leaving them for any negitive reason. Some of the things they offer within the village are average but the most important thing is the Management Team! The main reason… Full Review ▶


I will update my review with the current date. Full Review ▶


My husband and I have lived at Briar Brook for 7 months now. Here are some of the things we've liked and disliked about it: 1. The ladies who work in the office are extremely nice. When we were late on… Full Review ▶


they suck I had my storage broken into. They stated they are not responsible. I lost my at work from 40 hours to only 12. Same thing with my husband. They stated we cannt help you. We tried to buy a… Full Review ▶


We moved in about 2 weeks ago and relocated from out of state. We absolutely love it. My husband and I went for a walk last night to throw our garbage in the compactor and were very surprised to find how… Full Review ▶


While reading the above ratings, it puzzles me why these residents chose to write a review. If you are so unhappy move out and quit complaining and bad mouthing. My family and I have lived at here for the past 5… Full Review ▶


I have lived in Briarbrook for a year and a half now. I lived in the old apartments and moved into the remodels. I will admit that the remodels appear much nicer then the old apartments. However, the rent went up… Full Review ▶


I lived here for 9 years and loved it UNTIL Village Green took it over, no consideration for long term tenants...mass exodus of long term people. Funny how they raised our rents but for new tenants they rented at lower rates...how… Full Review ▶


I really enjoy the apartment that I have. Also i enjoy the staff except one person. Jenn, ----- and ----- are great but --------. She is rude. I come into the office to ask a simple question about something pertaining to… Full Review ▶


We moved in a little less than six months ago. We've been fortunate to see changes, however I sure hope more changes are coming. Village Green seems to be working very hard. They took over the property recently and since then… Full Review ▶


well I moved in here about a month and a half ago and I have seen no problems with this place at all. I did receive one of the new remodeled units and I have to say that they are pretty… Full Review ▶


I've been living here over 17 years and have seen many changes. But the changes I've seen these past few months have been phenomenal since the new managment has taken over (Village Green). They are doing things that needs to done.… Full Review ▶


We'll be leaving soon thanks to the current management company. The property was sold to a company who does not have your best interest at heart. Expect many things if you chose to live here. Firstly, during the winter expect icy… Full Review ▶

Prospective Resident

This place is nicely landscaped... My positive comments end there. The leasing agent's attitude did not sound trustworthy, to begin with. I understand that their job is to first sell apartments. Some choose to perform that task in an honest and… Full Review ▶


I applied for this apartment about two and a half weeks ago. They wanted 250.00 up front for 1/2 the security deposit and the application fees. Due to some mix up with my credit report i was denied. When they called… Full Review ▶


Stuff will probably break a lot more than you are used to, depending on where you are coming from. It will probably be more bug-infested, be it spiders, silverfish, cockroaches, whatever. We even had a rodent problem for a while. It… Full Review ▶


My fiance lived here for three years, and while it seemed like a nice place at first, the apartment complex, its tenants, and the management took some major turns for the worse.

The apartment itself wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great. The… Full Review ▶


I lived at Briarbrook Apts for 3 years and couldn't wait to get out of my lease! The complex has gone WAY downhill recently. I was very unhappy with my experience with the rental office. I had routine maintance done on… Full Review ▶


I lived in this apartment for just 6 months and it was the most horrible experience ever.

All appliances were antiques. Doors of all the closets kept falling off and there was no point getting them fixed. From the time I moved… Full Review ▶


I live at briarbrook apts and overall cannot wait to leave. The parking is such a pain..people park in the fire lane constantly and no one ever gets tickets for it. The other option is to walk a mile to your… Full Review ▶


My first apartment experience and I learned my lesson. I moved in to the apartment on the 1st floor, then hallways reaked of a funky feet smell and it was like 85 degrees in there. I had a brand new carpet… Full Review ▶


Maintenance is fairly good. Emergency calls are answered in a timely fashion. The grounds are a little shabby, but mature landscaping makes a lot of difference. Our 2 bedroom looks out onto a small pond. I would recommend this place if… Full Review ▶


I've been here for 5 years and except for a few bad neighbors (which can happen in any house, any apartment), my experience at Briarbrook Village has been wonderful. I don't understand the complaints abt magagement except that maybe in this… Full Review ▶


I moved into Briar Brook apartment and was content upon signing, then things got strange. Lights went out, ants returned from the previous tenant (I was told I had to pay for my own pest control - this was after three… Full Review ▶


Briarbrook is not the worst place I have lived, but that's not saying much. My old girlfriend once classified it as a "junkyard." I will be leaving here as soon as my lease is up. Everything that the other reviewers say… Full Review ▶


My fiance' and I decided to move to the western suburbs away from the southside of Chicago shortly after undergrad and found Briarbrook vilage to be conveiniently located and reasonably priced. The amenities weren't all that fabulous but in comparison to… Full Review ▶

This apartment place sucks! I lived there and hated it. The grounds are weeds and random lights all over the place. I could hear my neighbors below all the time and told the management on numerous occasions. The management is a… Full Review ▶


run down, slop that coat of paint on for the next person. Management horrible, unprofessional. Rent to anyone, people overcrowd and they do nothing about it. Forget about your security deposit, they take that plus more when you leave. Common area… Full Review ▶


terrible pool hours and rules, management not always agreeable but allows late pmts, nice grounds, lots of noise from main road and often loud people but apt. itself was very cozy and spacious, bigger than most. water pipes broke twice in… Full Review ▶


There's plenty of parking, but the configuration of the apartment complex inhibits you from always being able to park next to your building.

I rarely heard people from my apartment. You can hear people in the hall or outside, but… Full Review ▶


If you need a place to stay cheaply and in this location this is a good deal. But as far as building goes.. its very, very old and sometimes the ceilings leak(if you on the ground floor) or the walls seem… Full Review ▶


The area isn´t too bad, but the property manager (and this is an Inland Ghetto Property) is a mean, nasty woman.
She tried to evict me for letting my father, who was sick, stay with me for a couple of months.… Full Review ▶


Have been at this complex for nearly 3 years and have no complaints. The management are so nice to work with and any time I´ve even had any small problem, they´ve fixed it right away. My A/C broke on day and… Full Review ▶


The place is nice but when it comes to move out of the apartment they will keep every single penny out of your deposit.
When i moved out of the apartment was perfect clean. Then When it was the time to… Full Review ▶
