Resident 2006 - 2007

12/5/2007

Overall a great place

The Good: -Management is very helpful and will handle a problem immediately if need be (I've only had two problems so far.) -Having a garage with an automatic opener is priceless(some buildings / units only.) -If you live in one of the buildings facing Grand Ave there is plenty of street parking as well. -They allow one cat if you ask nice :-) -The space is fantastic, actually quite large for the price. -Sound is good for my direct neighbors, I can barely hear the people next to me at all. -Location is great and everything is easily accessible from here. -Minimal rent increases The Bad: -The laundry facilities are in the garage (2W/2D,) there is almost always one machine broken and with 10 units in each building it can be hard to fine them empty. -They do not maintain the common areas at all. Spider webs, cigarette butts and the like are EVERYWHERE, at least in my building. -The clubhouse is a joke and the only party I would consider renting it for is a low-class, keg and beer-pong type party (and that's obviously what the other tenants have used it for.) -The street noise from Grand Ave can take some getting used to and the parade at 6:30 am once a year at Thanksgiving time blows. -I know this is a unique situation but my upstairs neighbors are HORRIBLE. There are 5 people (3 adults and 2 children) in a 1 bedroom loft unit even though Marsha will tell you they don't allow more than 2. They scream and yell and run and jump ALL the time and I can hear everything they say and do. They have also let the water in their bathroom overflow, flooding MY bathroom. I haven't complained, so I can't expect management to do anything. If I had known about the crap I would have to put up with living under them I would have picked a different apartment. -Extra car parking, or guest parking is non-existent because there are too many tenants with extra cars and the lots are always full. -Ventilation is poor. My husband likes to roast and when he does (even with a clean oven) it smokes up the whole place and takes a while to clear out. Overall: Despite the problems, I am happy living in the Willow Grand or Brosnan Apartment complex and I am having a hard time finding anything better. Neighbors are quiet (except for my upstairs ones) and all seem to be working professional types, very nice and friendly. I feel safe all the time and have had nothing but friendly experiences with Management. I wouldn't be leaving except I need to move south for a new job in Mountain View. If I had different people above me and they allowed a dog I would make the commute.
