Thanks for weighing in with your thoughts about Summit and Birch Hill. We take resident feedback very seriously, and read every review posted. I am very sorry that you did not have a good experience here. Every apartment in our community is prepared for new residents in a standard and consistent way. It is our goal to provide the freshest, cleanest apartment in good working order for every resident that moves in. We are happy to address any maintenance needs that residents have, including painting the railing. Periodically, we are unable to do exterior in the winter or poor weather) although we would be happy to schedule it for a later time. As for your concern about pricing, we do adjust rates to best reflect the current market value for the types of apartments available. These rates can fluctuate daily, and we do our best to communicate rate changes to residents during the renewal process. Any additional fees are outlined in the lease each resident signs before moving in. Please let me know if you have any questions about your lease. If there is anything else you'd like to talk about, please visit me in the office, or contact me at [email protected] or at (860) 677-2763. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your experience. Resident feedback is very important to me, and I want to ensure that your concerns are addressed. As for your concern about pricing, we do adjust rates to best reflect the current market value for the types of apartments available. These rates can fluctuate daily, and we do our best to communicate rate changes to residents during the renewal process. The water and power bill is an allocated bill calculated by how many people are occupying the apartment, as well as the size of the apartment. More information is in the lease contract under the utilities addendum, and you can always contact me with any questions. If you are having an issue with noise, please call our office and we will be happy to address the problem with your neighbors. Finally, the arrested man you mention was not a resident of our community. We always ask that if residents see any suspicious or illegal activity, they dial the police immediately. If you have any other concerns or questions, don't hesitate to contact me at [email protected] or at (860) 677-2763.

Thanks for your feedback. It is important to us to hear what our residents are thinking so that we can make positive changes for everyone in our community. I'm sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied The non-refundable fee charged at move-in does not cover damages at move out. If an apartment is charged for damages, there is an itemized statement that is given to the previous resident explaining those charges, along with pictures on file. We always offer the opportunity to walk through the apartment with us when residents hand in their keys. I'm sorry you've had a bad experience. Please let me know if you would like to talk about your concerns. I'm always available to you at [email protected] or at (860) 677-2763.
