Resident 2005 - 2007 Not Recommended
Reviewed 02/21/2007
I have been a resident at Gables Druid Hills for over two years now (for a rental property, this is a long term resident) and have a few good and many bad things to say about living at Gables Druid Hills.<br><br>The Good: <br><br>1. The apartments are nice and are relatively well maintained. I have had no problems with maintenance requests being processed and taken care of within a reasonable amount of time. <br><br>2. In my building I have gotten to know my neighbors and really enjoy the people who live around me.<br><br>The Bad:<br><br>1. Parking: There is not enough that can be said about the parking situation. It is horrific to say the least. There are a number of spots marked "Visitor" but the majority of them are occupied by people who are living in the apartments ILLEGALLY. There are a number of people living in these apartments without being on the lease. Since they are not on the lease, they cannot get a decal that permits them to part in regular, resident parking. So when I have guests on a rare occassion, they have trouble finding a parking space and risk being booted if parked in a resident space. <br><br>2. The booting is out of control: Over the holidays, the majority of residents were out of town leaving the parking lots virtually empty. Per usual however, all of the visitor spaces were occupied. A friend came into my apartment for 15 minutes and returned to find a boot on her car. They refused to take it off without her paying for it even though there were clearly enough resident spaces available. After talking to residents with the same problem on NYE, I found out that they never called the booting company and sometime over night they removed the boots without a charge. My friend paid $75 dollars and it could have been removed for free.<br><br>3. The Armed Robbery Incident: There have been other comments left on this page regarding the armed robbery incident in the leasing office. The incident occurred on 12/4/06 and is a matter of public record. You can go to Dekalb County and get a copy of the police report. You can also listen to the police scan recording on scandekalb.com. Although I can understand why management would not bring attention to this incident, I believe that a responsibile management team would make their residents aware of criminal activity on the property, especially when one of its residents may have been a suspect. Further, the TV in the "Cyber Cafe" was stolen, more than likely by a resident. I know of at least one resident on the property that is a convicted felon and is not the lease to the apartment. <br><br>4. Dog Crap: As a responsible dog owner, I clean up after my dog to keep the community clean. A majority of the dog owners do not leaving disgusting piles of dog feces all over the property. Management has sent out letters regarding this issue, however, they do not reprimand repeat offenders and therefore the problem is never solved. <br><br>5. The Gate: Have had a number of problems with my access code not working at the gate and have received very little help from leasing office staff on this. <br><br>6. Answering Service: The answering service staff are very rude and unhelpful. I am sure that a portion of my rent goes towards the salary of these people. I expect an ounce of respect when I call a representative of the Gables team. <br><br>I hope that this review will help in your decision making process regarding this rental property. While people often discuss the negative things about apartment complexes, the apartments are well maintained, I have some great neighbors and the location is extremely convenient to pretty much anywhere in Atlanta.
