    250 High

    Columbus, OH 43215

    It has been good so far. The office staff has been quite friendly and helpful. The building looks amazing inside and the gym is much bigger than I had expected it to be here. They even have classes in there during the week you can take. It's only winter time right now, but would be nice some time later for the building to do something social for people to get to know one another in the building.

  • like the floor plan and apartment always clean . staff are very nice. Maintain is one time

  • One of the best places I've lived in Baltimore. Really great management, great amenities and you live above the Marketplace! Never had one issue. If you are looking for a place to live near Downtown Baltimore, look no further!

  • Would highly recommend this building. Staff is very responsive and the building is always in pristine condition.

    Alexan West Dallas

    Dallas, TX 75208

    This is a great community with a dynamic staff. They take great care of you from prospect to resident and it doesn't stop when you move in. Duranda went above and beyond to meet my needs. The manager and one of the leasing agents live on site which is always a plus for me because it lets me know the community is good enough for them. They have several events each month to keep the family atmosphere as well. The amenities are so awesome! I've never seen a set up like these. My only concern with the property is that there is no valet trash. With the chutes being in such inconvenient locations, valet trash would be ideal. Hopefully this is added soon.

  • Been here since 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just a hop across the street from some really nice West U neighborhoods - great for walking or biking. Complex is also great - family friendly, very vibrant.

  • It is a great community. The area is very clean and well lit. The staff is very friendly and helpful at all times. Very close to historic district of Savannah. The down tree limbs were cleaned up very quickly after the hurricane.

    Aspen Pines Apartments

    Wilder, KY 41071

    I moved in here at the end of July with my girlfriend. We have loved living here. Our apartment is very nice and was very clean upon move-in. We have a big 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment with a city view. For the price and size, this apartment is very nice. If this apartment was in Oakley/Hyde park, it would easily cost over $1800. The only thing I don't like about living here is how far we are from stores (which we really aren't that far, but I used to live in Oakley before and I could walk everywhere). We are about 8-10 minutes from Newport, 10-12 minutes from downtown, and about 10-15 minutes from crestview, which is a large shopping center with a bunch of stores and restaurants. Each apartment has washer/dryer hookups so you can bring your own or you can rent them for an extra $60 a month. You are able to use either side-by-side or stackable units. We have had only a couple problems that were greatly handled by the apartment management. A few weeks ago we had our water heater burst and it was overflowing. Luckily there was a drain at the bottom of the water heater where the water so it did not flood our apartment, which I believe is a law. The leasing agent, Sarah, and aspen pines handled the problem very well. They gave us the keys to the demo apartment for the night so we could shower/do laundry if we needed. The maintenance crew then installed a brand new water heater the next day. Aspen lines could not have handled this issue any better than how they did. We love living here but only wish it was closer to our friends in Oakley.

  • I am new resident to MD and I like the convenience of living in the building. As well as the amenities offered.. I am still adjusting to the change in weather but I find having access to free coffee and Internet as a plus. I am impressed with the staff professional attitude and demeanor.

    Beacon Clarendon

    Arlington, VA 22201

    Only been here for two weeks that staff has been friendly and very helpful. building is clean safe and quiet. Attended the holiday party my first day here and it was a very welcoming experience. The gym is clean and open 24 /7 which is great for my schedule. The location is very central and within walking distance of everything you need. Looking forward to using the pool and roof top deck this upcoming summer.

    Beaumont Place

    Whitefish Bay, WI 53217

    This is your next home. Beaumont place is such a beautiful living experience. The management and staff are so efficient. The building facilities are always clean and well kept. Mandel does such a good job with attention to detail with the layout, interiors design decor elements. Beaumont has a positive and vibrant air about it. Its the people and the neighborhood. My apartment interiors is design to reflect just that. Spacious bright high ceilings, lots of sunlight give it that openness with unique spatial design. I love the safety and security of this place.

  • The absolute best apartment I've ever lived in and the biggest factor in that statement is the service. Another thing that makes this apartment building so good is the security. I feel safe and that is very important to me.

  • The staff is great. everyone is very helpful and friendly, i can tell they like their job. the pool is relaxing and lounge chairs are very comfy! The gym is never overwhelmingly crowded and there's always parking; that's never an issue which i was nervous about when moving into an apartment. I haven't needed a maintenance ticket, but considering everything is done efficiently and quickly, i'm sure i wouldn't have a problem with it. sometimes i hear the upstairs neighbor walking around, but maybe he's just a heavy stepper. great place. great location.

    Bradbury Park

    Duarte, CA 91010

    Awesome place to reside! This is a wonderful apartment in Duarte with reasonable rent. You feel so relaxed after day long work to be in such a beautiful apartment. It has good amenities like swimming pool, laundry, basket ball ground, kids play and many more along with two orchids. It's full of greenery. I must say the management is very much professional and prompt. Ms. Miriam Wysock (Resident Manager) is a wonderful soul, very energetic, happy go lucky kind of, highly professional and above all she goes extra miles to help the prospective residents/existing residents. I was facing issue to get my money order done, she helped me how to get it and made my work smooth. We wanted to shift a bit quickly, she strenched and get all completed for us to shift ASAP. We thank her for her generous support to us! One interesting thing which we saw here is the online management of Bradbury apartments. They have amazing online tool which is helpful right from paying and filling out of an application, to pay monthly rent and raise any maintenance request. It saves our time so much. Best part that we get online reminders also for rent every month so that we don't miss it at any cost :) The management conducts fun activities and parties every month within the premises. It enables we residents to mingle with our neighbours giving our stay a harmonious and freindly environment. The life has become more simpler and relaxed after shifting here. It is true home where we find peace after hectic schedule. We would certainly recommend this apartment to our freindly and relatives. It's a wonderful place! Thank you Bradbury Park Apartments for making such a harmonious place to reside!!! :)

  • Even though it's been a little less than a month since I moved in, I am already in love with my apartment and the location and the service that has been provided! This is a great place to live. The office staff have been very helpful. My only complaint is the price but you definitely get what you pay for.
