I live in the apartments, and it is horrible. The leasing agents are alright, but the management is horrible. They are rude and inconsiderate. Maintenance is sub-par and they do not speak English, nor do I think that they speak Spanish.… Full Review ▶

WORST customer service/management I have ever seen. Easily the rudest ladies in the leasing office and would NEVER rent from them just on that fact alone. There are much nicer apartments in the area so keep looking! Full Review ▶

The apartment started off as a decent mid-range complex until a new management company bought the place out late in 2008. The parking situation got much worse with an ill thought out assigned parking scheme, parking lot gates were taken offline,… Full Review ▶
