Resident 2012 - 2015

7/13/2015

I've lived here for the past 3 years and I've been completely happy. The manager is friendly, nice and responsive, they have private garages available for people that need it or a gated lot depending on availability. The people in the complex are all nice and friendly, the laundry facility is plenty big for the size complex and I've even left my laundry overnight (on accident) several times and not once has anyone messed with anything. I have not been able to find another place this close to Downtown Fullerton that is as nice, as large (700 square foot one bedroom) and as reasonably priced (I still pay my original rent from 3 years ago of $1025, not sure what the price is now).

        Terrible Apartments

        The new management brought us new hope in 2009. However, the hope vanishes quickly. I was told when I signed the lease that pets are not allowed but we can see dogs (unmonitored sometimes) running around in the open space. Dogs barking noise, neigbors and train noise are heard frequently. The lighting in the alley and the open area has been out of order for more than one month (October 2010) and is still not fixed. The laundry room and the open space are usually dirty. I've just heard from my neigbor that they have got mice in their apartment. Very scaring! When we have problems that we need to contact the only Management staff, we can hardly get in touch with her via phone or in person during her normal office hours. Maybe an additional staff should be employed to help her.

            LAST YEAR MY FRIEND LIVED THERE, AND IT WAS NOT PLEASENT. BUT NOW SHE TELLS ME THAT THERE IS NEW MANAGEMENT AND THEY ARE REALLY DOING A GOOD JOB. I THINK ITS TIME FOR ME TO GO GET MY APT NOW THAT I SEE HOW NICE THEY LOOK. THEY LOOL SO CLEAN AND QUIET. WHEN I HELP HER WITH HER LAUNDRY, THE ROOM IS NICE AND SMELLS "FRESH" THERE IS NO TRASH IN STUFF ALL OVER. THE POOL AREA IS CLEAN ALSO. SHE HOPES IT STAYS THIS WAY. THE NEW MANAGERS ARE REALLY FRIENDLY AND CARING. THANKS TO THEM MY FRIEND IS HAPPY.

              Love this place.

              I have checked this complex out before but did'nt like how I was treaded by the Manager. Since the new managers took over, this place is great. Property kept clean and well maintained. They try hard to keep up with reparis and make sure this is a nice place to live. I have friends that live here and am trying to get an apartment for myself.

                  NEW MANAGEMENT - SUPER!

                  New management is really "on it". They are turning this place around. The laundry room is spotless. The pool is well kept. Beautifully landscaped. Bad elements evicted. Now, residents will want to stay indefinitely. It's worth paying a visit. I believe you will be pleased. I am.

                    The worst dump in DTF

                    I currently am a student. I work. I come home at all hours of the day and night, and let me tell you that there is not any event that I come home that I do not feel completely terrified that someone might a. rob me b. break into my car c. break into my apartment. You pick, its all the same. Each day you can see a group of un-fit mothers sitting, smoking and yelling at "they kidz" to stop yelling. Children SCREAMING bloody murder in the middle of the day, you don't know weather or not to ignore it or call child protective services. These poor unfortunate children are forced to stay outside while the "adults" do god knows what in their apartments. I've even heard one boy say "If it starts raining, can I come back inside?" .... Keep in mind he had no jacket, just a t-shirt and shorts and shoes. HOW DARE THESE PEOPLE BE ALLOWED TO HAVE CHILDREN! Besides that unfortunate daily sight. There are gang members always walking around. There is regular tagging that takes place on the garages/buildings nearby. You hear the train at least once an hour. The apartment itself is cleaned/prepared by unlicensed… See More>

                      Current Resident.

                      This place is a joke. Gang members sit at the bbq pits on a daily AND nightly basis. 10-15 guys drinking, smoking (probably pot), and laughing and yelling at all hours of the night. You cannot walk anywhere NEAR the bbqs without someone hollering at you, or calling you a name, or making you feel unsafe and uncomfortable. There is no security or patrol here and the gates are all always open. There is one apartment full of children and 2 girls. The children run out of the apartment unattended and without clothing often. The price was right, but unfortunately, the grounds were clean when we walked and did our tour, and there was no one out and about while we were there. The apartments features are all terribly put together. Patching on the walls doesn't match paint, or was never covered up. Holes in the ceiling never patched, weird hole in the ceiling in one of the closets (possibly for people to get into our apartment whenever they want?), the front door has visible light on all 4 edges, the locks were crappy and you could easily kick the door in. Our windows don't lock, the screens are old and warped. The… See More>

                            If you want to keep your car stereo, don´t move here!

                            We´ve lived here a year and a half and our cars have been broken into THREE TIMES...does that tell you anything? Rent went up to construct new security gates...some security!!! Nothing is ever fixed when requested because the manager is never there, even during her required business hours...we won´t see you because we´re getting out! Good luck!

                              I do not recommend you move here.

                              This manager is too strong, walk around everyday. And threaten you to move out if you have any little trouble. <br>He is not friendly, not at all. <br> <br>Also a lot of trains screaming every night. <br> <br> <br>

                                Poorly managed, apartment manager seems to read through people´s mail, and walk around all day creepy guy. <br>Poor maintanence, remember this when negotiating price. <br>

                                  This apartment complex is very quiet and tucked away near a industrial park, train tracks, the local fire station, and local police station. The tenants are nice and usually keep to their own. However, the expedience of the handy work leaves a lot to be desired.
