    Unsure of the exact year we moved here but I think it might have been 2015. While I have been happy with it overall, my husband still forgets why we must decertify each year. I keep reminding him. Office staff and managers have changed over time but more recently had been going downhill. Now I understand someone took over for a manager who did not get recertifications entered into the computer promptly causing much chaos. Hope that has been fixed by now. I will be looking for a new job myself by the end of the year and wonder if you need help in the leasing office. I intend to inquire soon. Hoping that I can help improve things. Thanks.

        It's only one dumpster for both sides . It's very trashy & how can you possibly give people a 100 fine for leaving the trash outside the dumpster scam much . People will take up 2 parking spots with one car .

          There is a lot of confusion. Management changes frequently rent is raised beyond what people can afford. We have pest issues. The electric here is dangerous. The outside needs an update. It could be a very nice place

            Well, since I've moved in here, I have to say Santa Fe Oaks has been very welcoming. It's Peaceful the people that live here are very nice and friendly pet friendly, which is an awesome thing and a little kids love to play with the little dogs I would give this place a 10 because it's very clean and very friendly nice it's a good place to live and raise kids.

              Great community. I love my new apartment its so clean and spacious. Management was very nice and patient along with the whole move in process. I had some issues with my move in and the office was quick to fix them on their behalf and made sure that everything went smoothly.

                  I have had a great experience at this apartment. This apartment is affordable and convenient. I enjoy living here and I have had a great experience here. This place is kept up very well. I will definitely be renewing my lease here.

                    VERY DEPRESSING

                    It's been four years since I've moved here, and it's gotten worse by the day. Now they're on the 4th or 5th manager/staff. They NEVER answer the phone or return phone calls and I've actually seen them ignore calls while I was in the office. Which is also difficult because they're never there OR they're just not answering the locked door. It says that the office is supposed to open at 10 and Saturdays, but just yesterday when I got there no one was there. AS USUAL. Maintenace use to be OKAY, but now it takes two weeks if isn't what the deem as an emergency. Even then it takes a few days. I had to scrub the apartment when I moved in which didn't bother me too much because I do that to any new place I move into. The tubs creek so loud that I can hear when my neighbors are showering so I'm sure that they can hear me. But the absolutely worse thing out here is the kids. They are so out of control that it's crazy! I would always take my child to school, but she had to ride the bus home because I would… See More>

                    My wife and I are both disabled and I recently had major Thoracic Spine surgery that has left me very limited on lifting anything or reaching too far without severe pain. The refrigerator we had opened the wrong way for me to be able to use it without reaching too far. The maintenance staff brought us a new refrigerator that was so much easier for me to open and shut from the other side. The management and maintenance staff here at Santa Fe Oaks apartments are just awesome!

                    So far my experience has been great. I just moved in and still getting everything together but I enjoy the peace in my home and the fact that my kids can go play at the park without any problems and the space inside is great too ??

                        Horrible, STAY AWAY

                        Just like another review on here that person is absolutely correct. The kids are constantly out here fighting with no adults around to stop them, they bad as hell. Always in the road no regard for passing vehicles nothing. The office never answers the phone, and being in that office I've witnessed them totally ignoring the phones. They don't have no type of sense of urgency at all. For somebody living out here who is not on housing/ section 8, I pay entirely too much money almost $1300 a month to live in a place that is infested with roaches. You ask for maintenance to come in a pest control, and there is no sign of them ever coming in. Previous places I've lived we would get a notice of them coming and leaving something on your door that they've been there. I'm so tired of trying to get a hold of someone in that office. STAY AWAY FROM HERE IF YOU CAN HELP IT!!!!

                          Don’t move here you will regret it

                          This place is trash the kids are bad as hell they destroy your property peak through your windows bully your kids. The neighbors stalk you vandalize your car all while the office does nothing to help. They ask if you want a unit with washer n dryer and if you chose it the washer and dryer don’t work now your stuck with it and can’t move it out of unit they don’t fix or replace anything I feel like I was tricked I would have never moved here if I knew all of this. They never answer the phone in the office and they barely answer the door. We way across town in a nice area and these apartments may as well be project based been here a few weeks been ready to move. I wish I could give it no stars.

                              This residential property is ok. Have problems with language barrier with a maintenance worker. My application has been pending for months I did not know still waiting when the rent is bring paid makes no sense. Landscaping kinda sketchy don't pick up leave around apartments windows which causes numerous bug promblem because I have seen over 100 spiders in this apartment I moved in the living room ceiling was peeling I hate the wood cabinets. The garbage disposal back up and spilled down into the cabinets the maintenance man didn't replace but I guess he's not a construction worker a lot of the appliances need to be updated the fridge and stove need to be updated and these apartments need a full cleaning after tenants move out . How I moved in there were spider webs Cobb webbs I had to vacuum the ceiling my son has an acute case of asthma and the amount of dust on the ceiling was terrible he's been more sick here than any other place we have stayed. The way people are treated who are less fortunate than others and who have section… See More>

                                  Aside from the rat/roach issue in my apartment the community overall isn't bad! Pest control definitely needs to be mandatory and I wish Maitenance was better! The community is quiet! And the apartments have the opportunity to be great if the tenants were held accountable and repairs were actually done the proper way and people actually cared about keeping up where they stay.

                                    Santa Fe Oaks has an appealing location across from the Community college but it seems to be in a state of disrepair as well as a security risk in evening hours. There is no exterior lighting that is functional and cars troll and park in the neighborhood that do not appear to be my neighbors. The unit itself would be ideal if it was up to current living standards. I filled in a inspection list upon arrival as requested by management, but as of yet, nothing has been addressed other than a drain problem. Management is difficult at best to find during office hours. My understanding is that the staff is new and may be trying to address various problems that are more pressing, but I wouldn't know because there is no communication between them and their residents.

                                          The staff is horrible and extremely unprofessional, especially the office manager, she is the absolute worst! The apartments are old and disgusting and falling apart! They want to raise the rent and the do nothing to improve them! The tenants let their kids run amuck never supervised! Bad kids stealing packages, breaking into cars, cussing, and extremely rude! The office does absolutely nothing about the unsupervised kids and the parents are either not there or just don't care! That is the most disgusting ------ piece of crap apartments and I would stay far far away from them!
