It is rare that I reflect on why I moved to Sumner Highlands at this point (natural beauty of the area that has nothing to do with the apartment complex or some general conveniences) and more likely that I focus on… Full Review ▶

We've lived in Sumner Highlands for over a year and recently renewed the lease. The apartments are clean, well-maintained, and quiet. In contrast to some reviewers, we haven't experienced any noise problems at all. The custodial and maintenance staff keep the… Full Review ▶

We have lived here for 11 months. The location is great, yes. Safeway, Starbucks, CVS, good Sushi, etc. - all across the street. It's a 5 minute walk to an access trail for the capital crescent trail. Awesome. However, the noise… Full Review ▶

The place is better than the people managing it! I lived here for four years. It was a nice location close to a safeway, starbucks, pralines, and the C&O canal. My commute to work was 4 minutes. This I loved. The… Full Review ▶

I have lived in many communities in the area and so far I have liked this one the best. Not that Sumner Highlands is perfect, but its a lot better than most communities in the area. The property manager was nice… Full Review ▶

1. Overall = Bad; you can do better in the area for price and value 2. Noise = Really, really, really bad - you can hear everything your neighbors do 3. Safety = fair, but has nothing to do with the… Full Review ▶

Well if you do not want snow removal, but are glad they are installing patio overhangs (in the snow), then this is the place for you. Sure they can get a roofing crew to put up a small ledge like roof… Full Review ▶

The last glowing review seems fake and possibly the work of management. Let's go by the numbers for real: 1. Parking is a total nightmare because management does not enforce the policy of one car per unit in the lot and… Full Review ▶

We recently moved out of Sumner Highlands into a single family home, but had a great experience and would recommend it to others. The residents are friendly and quiet, the management group is responsive and professional. The apartment buildings are a… Full Review ▶

Parking is often crowded and tenants park more than one car in the lot on the weekends when management is not in; not that management enforces parking when someone is in. Noise is ever present from the slamming of front doors… Full Review ▶

The ratings for March 9, 2013 seem faked by the property managers. It would be hard to believe that three neighbors all were inspired in the same day to give such glowing reviews. This place is noisy. Parking is not good… Full Review ▶

By the categories here: Parking- Not enough space to accommodate the exiting apartment units (all you need do is hand count); the rule is one car per unit in the apartment lots (blue sticker cars), all other cars can park across… Full Review ▶

I would give this place a zero, but this website will not let me! I also received an inaccurate notice that cited my lease was basically up at the end of this month, yet my annual renewal occurs in the autumn.… Full Review ▶

Like many other posters, we have lived here for some time. We are not the longest tenants; however, we have been here for a while. Recently, we received notice of a rent increase for our unit, but the wrong tenant name.… Full Review ▶

The appeal of living at Sumner Highlands depends greatly on the local management of the complex at the given time. I've been here for 3 years only because it is convenient to where I work. During this time, the local office… Full Review ▶

The Sumner Highlands is terrific. I have lived her for two years and find it quiet, convenient and well taken care of. The grounds are always maintained and the entryways are vacuumed and mopped on a daily basis. As far as… Full Review ▶

We have been here since the end of June 2012. We are on the third floor facing South. We love the one bedroom apartment we are in. We are both over 60, and the multicultural nature of the complex is a… Full Review ▶

Well, let's see... We've been here since 2009, and pretty much lay low in terms of maintenance needs. We are definitely the "do it yourself" types. Most of what's been noted is totally true. The "churn" in managers/maintenance was constant for… Full Review ▶

Sumner Highlands shows well and seems like a great place based on appearance - great location, clean and recently updated, etc. However, the paper thin walls make this place completely unlivable. Within hours of moving in, we had realized that we… Full Review ▶

Do not live here. It is extremely overpriced, and the management staff is horrendous. We are currently going to court with their leasing office over their violations of our lease agreement. Because we filed an official complaint with the Montgomery County… Full Review ▶

I've been living in this apartment complex for almost a year now, and can not wait for my lease to expire. While the apartments are fairly nice inside (they were recently remodeled), there is no sound proofing between the floors. So… Full Review ▶

First, let me qualify by saying I have resided in this community for over two (2) years now. This is a bit unusual, as the turn-over rates for the units in the community are quite high at the present time. Additionally,… Full Review ▶

I am not shocked by the negative reviews here, if anything I am shocked by the positive reviews. Overall, I would give Sumner Highlands negative reviews. As a student, convenience and safety are both important to me. It definitely is convenient,… Full Review ▶
