    Pleased to be home!!

    The staff is really on top of things. I have been there for several years and have seen leasing agents come and go. I must say that the current staff go above and beyond to make sure that you are pleased with the services that are rendered. The maintenance staff is also top notch. If you ever have a problem they are there as quickly as they can to get the issue resolved, mostly the very first time. The apartment community is conveniently located to shops and restaurants which makes it very nice to be in the midst of entertainment. Everyone who resides at the apartment community is very nice. They are willing to open doors for you if your hands are full and always either say good morning or hello. I would highly recommed living at Bel Air if you want exceptional service and a family atmosphere.

      Home at last!

      I have lived here at Bel Air for well over a year and I must say that I am completely satisfied. This is a gated community with two pools, three laundry facilities as well as washer and dryer hook-upd in some of the apartments. I am close to the malls as well as the down town region. The University of South Alabama is maybe eight minutes away, and i have access to three hospitals that are within 6-8 minutes away. The staff here at the apartments are awesome, they are friendly and professional. The property is always very well maintained and if I ever have any issues it is taken care of immediately. my apartment is so quiet, I don't hear other residents and amazingly enough i don't hear any road noise. I truly am at home!

        Happy Tennant

        Bel Air Apartments is a fantastic place to call home. I have lived here since 2003 and have really enjoyed my stay. The location is excellent and very accessible to my work and and shopping. Could not be better. The Apartment complex is very quite and very safe. I usually leave around 4:40am in the morning and everything is well lit and I feel safe even then. The Groundskeepers do an excellent job in keeping the grounds looking superb. The maintenance guys are great and no matter what time of the day or night they are on top of things and very nice, friendly and helpful. Melanie (Manager) has done a lot to the property to make it an even better place for us all to live, constantly updating something to make it all better. Melanie and Nancy (Assist. Manager) always takes time out for you and whether it be that I go up for a maintenance problem are just wanting to sit and chat they are always there ready to listen. They also think of their residents by spending their time planning luncheons, pool parties and other events to get the residents… See More>

          Highly Recommended

          Bel Air apartments is a great place to live. I have enjoyed my neighbors as well as the great staff we have. The workers do an awesome job on keeping the lawn and my place in great shape. I'm happy a gate has been put for the safety of all the residents, we love it! The location could not be any better ; I'm only 3 minutes away from my job and the shopping mall is only a step away...What more could you ask for ? The staff also thinks about the residents by giving parties for all occasions and have also added a gym for me to stay in shape. Keep up the great work...You're the best !

            Quiet, safe, perfect location

            I have lived at Bel Air since 2006 and have enjoyed every minute of it. The apartments are nice, well maintained, and are a great price for what you get. The complex is in the middle of town, and everything that you need is within 5 miles. The ladies in the front office are friendly and helpful, and will always take time out for you, whether you are there with a problem, or just want to chat. The maintenance staff are friendly, and are there on the spot when you need them for something (which isn't often). The apartment complex is quiet, and except for the very occasional mishap(which is going to happen anywhere, whether you live in an apartment or house) is very safe. They have two pools that are well kept, and the front office is constantly upgrading the property to make the grounds and apartments nicer. I would definately reccomend to anyone who wants an affordable nice quiet place to live.

              Home sweet home!

              I have been at Bel Air since 2007 and love it. I wouldn't go anywhere else. It is close to everything as far as location. Apartments are quite. The ladies in the office are great, help you with anything they can. The new Manager is doing a lot to update the property and make it an even better place to live. I will definantly be renewing my lease the next time it is time for that.

                I have lived in Bel Air Apartments for 3 years. This apartment complex is a very nice place for the most part. It is an absolutely beautiful place to live. I have great neighbors that are quiet and respectful. We did have some -------- and a group of young black girls that were loud and drank lots of beer. The girls did not pay thier rent and have since been evicted. The grounds are well maintained by --------. Electronic gates have now been added. So, now we are being charged more for rent as a result of a "luxury item," that was never requested in the first place. Now because of the security gates I have to drive all the way around the entire complex to get out of the complex. My friends and family have complained about the security gates as well. The electronic gates never work as they are supposed to. The pool lights inside the pool have all burned out (there are 2). The smaller pool does not have any lighting around it whatsoever. If a small child were to fall and… See More>

                  not safe at ALLLLLL

                  I lived here for 11 months now, and I can't wait till my lease is over and I'll move out...my friend got carjacked in front of me,with the gun pointed at him, inside the parking complex, even thought the complex has the gate now. but i don't know why they keep it open most of the nights!!!!! One side of the gate was open that night (again) and thats what criminals are waiting for...hopefully the camera they installed is working, coz it seems they can keep anything in a good shape... Plus, i've been asking for my windows screens to be replaced (for the last 7 months)since i'm alergic to mosquitos coz i like to keep my windows open once in a while,and everytime i go pay my rent and say something abt it the lady in the office will tell me OOOOOH they haven't replace them yet?!! well I'm gonna order them today and they will come in 3 days "i've been always getting the same answer" and now it's been 11 months and i just quit asking... Also my friend asked for the maintenance to come and fix something in his apt...he left his camera on the table...but after the guy… See More>

                      Our declining homes

                      I have lived at BelAir Apts. for nearly 10 years and am so distressed to see how our once lovely complex is declining. Our former manager, Janie was in the process of upgrading the complex; pools were well kept, most units were occupied, parking and common areas nice and many of us enjoyed the get togethers- Bingo once a month, ice cream socials, holiday dinners, etc. A real community and family feel.<br>Since Janie left, the current management appears to be either incompetent or nonchalant as they aren't even in the office much of the time, don't return phone calls, don't respond to maintenance requests. Calls to the corp. office of Sizeler Management also go unanswered or not returned. The complex office is no longer open on weekends though approximately 30 units are vacant.<br>Many long term tenants have received rent hikes of 10-12% as compared to 2.5-4.5% in the past- more than double!! This is with declining service, run down appearance and poor management and maintenance. This is a real shame as it was such a lovely complex and home to many seniors who were long term residents. It appears management wants us all… See More>

                        future homeowner

                        Although I am pleased with the great apartment, location and noise level at bel air apartments, the management has proven to be overall incompetent. The problems that have taken place range from losing rent checks, (and then serving an eviction notice on account of their irresponsibility), being caught in a lie about why repairs weren't made, and not returning the numerous phone calls that have been made to their office. Through no fault of the maintenance staff, the repairs have taken weeks to be made or even arranged. When confronted about these problems we were given excuses and, once again, ignored. Although I love these apartments and the other people who live here, I would not recommend it for those who lack patience or expect immediate service.

                          Great place to live

                          I rented at another Mobile apartment before moving tp Bel Air, and the other doesn't compare to Bel Air. It is a great place to live. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The apartment is definitely worth more than the rent price! The staff is always planning activities for us such as bingo and pot luck dinners. I highly recommend Bel Air Apartments.

                            Makes you wonder

                            I happen to think that this is one of the best properties in Mobile, and the addition of a new, more friendly manager has only improved the complex. The other residents here are all nice people, and I hardly ever have any trouble from any one of my neighbors. The old Manager was rude to me once, and when I met the new Manager, I thought that this company was finally waking up. I don´t know why the old Manager was replaced, but I am glad she was. <br> <br>As for the other posts, I think that two of these people are probably children, who don´t understand the concept of how things work in the real world. When you live in such close quarters to other people, you are going to step on each others toes occasionally. It is never right to expect anyone to say "How high?" just because you say jump. I have had to call maintenance to fix a problem, and I got a prompt response from the maintenance man. I haven´t met the new one, but I am sure if he doesn´t do a good job, he won´t be there long. <br> <br>As for the things that the new Manager… See More>

                              I think Bel Air is a great place to live. The management staff and the maintenance staff are both very professional and very friendly. They are very responsive to any type of problems, have resident activities such as the Holiday Party, Bingo Night. I couldn´t be happier and don´t want to live anywhere else.

                                  I have been a long time resident but I am really thinking about moving! I hate it because this has been my home for so long but this new so called manager is uncalled for.Everthing is changing the noise,complaints go unanswered,she is so unprofessional ( she was sitting on top of the desk,she wears low cut tops and when she bends over you can see all the way to here belly even my husband commented on this and was not impressed),the grounds have not been picked up lately,the pools are not being cleaned like they were when Kim was here.I am not trying to be a problem but I have been here when Denise,Kim,and now Linda was here.How can you go from Kim to Linda? We used to get monthly news letters to let us know when rent is due when pest control was available and so on.Linda does nothing for the residents! Maybe that is because she does not live on site so she really does not care.I talk to alot of residents and they feel the same as me.She is renting to awful people what are you doing to such a wonderrful place to live!

                                    Kim Mcsweeny needs a lot to learn about running a business. She has no business sense and does not care about the residents needs. She is very agrumentative if any situation is brought to her attention. I would NEVER request Bel-Air Apts to anyone due to the extremely poor management. All in all the complex could be a really great place to live if run by the right person. Kim completely ran this place into the ground.
