New Management is great. Im seeing much needed improvement. Maintenance and parking was a big issue. I like the phone system and emails used to track work order request. The staff is very professional, and friendly. Full Review ▶

I moved to Branchwater about a month ago. I have nothing but the best to say for it. I do not want anyone to think I am part of management because I am not. I am writing this because I am… Full Review ▶

We moved in at the beginning of December and have had a great two months at Branchwater. The management let us move in two days early, and we were thrilled to find the apartment immaculately clean. It was amazing. The apartments… Full Review ▶

While the location is great, the parking isn't. There are not enough electrical outlets in the kitchen, and the cheap appliances leave alot to be desired. The management will bait you into moving in with good rates, such as $850 for… Full Review ▶

Let me first say I'm not a disgruntled former resident, but rather a former resident who would like to notate the pros and cons of living at Branchwater Apartments. I lived hear for a year. One of the good things that… Full Review ▶

I wouldn't recommend anyone moving here! The manager is a pest and a racist amongst other things.. The rent is not worth the old apartment. Parking is limited and friends and family have to park a mile away and walk to… Full Review ▶

Do it. The apartments are old and therefore overpriced. The landlady is insubordinate to her renters. Full Review ▶

Been here for nearly a year and I am glad I chose Branchwater. Sometimes I feel like I live in a small "village", with very good neighbors. The complex is run very efficiently, maintenance is excellent, any problems are quickly taken… Full Review ▶

The apartment was old and on the grungy side but spacious, and the rent seemed reasonable. Within the next year, though,there were problems: a heater that never heated, rotten wood, water leaks, mold, a backed-up sink, numerous roaches, etc. but the… Full Review ▶

I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with this fat, smokey desk wench for two out of the three years that I lived there. We were good tenants, who paid our rent on time and never got a noise complaint, and… Full Review ▶

this place is old and overpriced. plain and simple. the 2 bedrooms aren't worth anymore than $700/month. the 'renovated" apts still have the same old appliances. walls are paper thin. you can hear your neighbors and the floors are LOUD when… Full Review ▶

We have been here 3 years and are renewing our lease for another year. The best out there for space maintenance and property manager. You won't find a better manager than Sheri Martin, she keeps on top of everything and keeps… Full Review ▶

The anonymous post below me is all wrong! The office staff are not cheats. In fact, in my four years living at the apartment, the office staff has been nothing but helpful. Also, the prices for the apartments are pretty normal… Full Review ▶

These people are real cheats, this includes the leasing agent "Rex" as well as the property manager "Sherri"...we were offered a price by the leasing agent when we went to look at the place, so we ended up running our credits,… Full Review ▶

I moved into Branchwater Dec 2007. I recently read these reviews and was amazed at some of the hateful comments. Usually only people with an ax to grind write reviews. I know there are people at Branchwater that have been there… Full Review ▶

Do not trust Rex Snyder, he is one of the managers working on the property. He is a sweet talker. He showed me an apartment and told me that we would work out the price. After doing the HARD credit history… Full Review ▶

Branchwater has been an incredible place to live. No, it's not perfect, is any thing? The size of the apartment homes are second to none - they are really big! They are older and the floors squeak, but dollar per square… Full Review ▶

I would not suggest this place to my worst enemy. The management is very poor. If something breaks down (which it will), it will take months for it to be replaced. They have pest control, but I think the guy has… Full Review ▶

The apartments are very large, but PLEASE do not be swayed by that. The onsite manager is a horrible, hateful woman who will be your BEST friend when you apply, but will turn a deaf ear to any concerns from that… Full Review ▶

Let's just say that we have had more problems here than any apartments ever. It is extremely bad when the apartments are so cheaply built that you can hear your downstairs neighbors goings on. Every board in the house creeks and… Full Review ▶

This is a poor excuse for Apartments. The Manager could care less about you and your problems with the apartment. Someone needs to tell the Owner that there is a problem with the Staff and maybe the apts would be more… Full Review ▶

If you are looking to live somewhere that is comfortable and at a great price you are looking at the wrong apartments.
