------. The females in the office are SUPER -----. No vents in the bathroom so prepare for mildew. Have an issue? Good luck getting it fixed. The maintenance staff just ------rigs everything or just paints over the problem. Parking is TERRIBLE. Don't do it.

Southern Oaks Apartments Manager05/17/2013

Our online reputation is extremely important to us. While we love reading notes from our happy residents, we work diligently to address and correct the issues posted by the negative statements as well. As the manager of this community, I have 20 years of property management experience and our maintenance supervisor has 35+ years. We are both dedicated in establishing trust and in building a strong customer service program that delivers promises. We use the National Apartment Association lease agreement, which is used by thousands of apartment management firms across the United States, and is respected as a fair and responsible agreement for apartment leasing. This lease is available for review prior to leasing. https://www.bluemoon.com/products/forms_online/print/index.php?state=AL&form=ALL&sample=1 When there are management changes, it's usually attributed to the need for immediate improvement or to maintain a stronger stability of a community. In many instances, a new manager is faced with making difficult decisions, which directly affect those not in compliance with the lease agreement and/or community policies of the property. Upon these occasions we handle each issue accordingly, providing fair and equal treatment to all. It's important for us in working to continually improve the quality of life within our community. We encourage residents to contact us either by phone at 251-344-1814, an office visit in person anytime M-F, 9am-6pm, or an email response to: [email protected]

It's unfortunate that apartment parking is very limited for certain floorplans and locations. In order to provide these residents with sufficient means to park in an area closer to their apartment, we had to enforce a towing policy after 6pm. The towing company is not affilated with our property and we do not receive any compensation from any fees they charge. We certainly apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused residents and/or their guests. We also urge residents to contact our office with any concerns, maintenance issues or complaints.
