Review of Courtland

I have lived at Courtland, previously called The Place on Ponce for almost four years. The location is excellent! The maintenance team is outstanding and has always been quick to respond to issues. Communication between the office and the residents is poor. I think these… See More >

    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your candid feedback with us. We’re happy to hear that you have been enjoying our community’s convenient location and have had positive experiences with our service team. We are disappointed to hear that you have felt as though we have been lacking in communication regarding events happening in our community. We do our very best to communicate updates to our residents regarding things like improvements being made, especially if they are going to cause an amenity to be closed for a period of time. We certainly understand that these instances can be frustrating, but sometimes may be necessary and we will always do our best to work through them as quickly as possible. If you are experiencing any difficulties with our payment system, we are always happy to assist you. Please feel free to reach out to ponce@cortland.com or stop by the office at your convenience. We look forward to assisting you. -Your Cortland on Ponce team

        I'm glad to hear that you find the staff to be kind and respond quickly to maintenance requests. I understand that you miss the resident events, its a great way to meet your neighbors. The Friday goodies were not meant to replace the resident get togethers but just a way to show a small appreciation for all of our residents while were unable to have actual resident functions. I'm hoping that we will be able to have actual get togethers soon. Sincerely, Krista H. Property Manager

            I couldn’t agree more, the neighborhood is great! in terms of the parking, as you know we do share the parking deck with 315 West Ponce Tenants and the parking deck itself is managed by AAA Parking and unfortunately things can and do happen. On our side we have controlled access so you can’t just enter the building. In terms of the fire alarms, I understand it’s very frustrating when they go off especially if it’s in the middle of the night, however, they are very sensitive and in the event of an actual fire we will be very glad that they are. We had previously not followed up on false alarms, however, after it was brought to our attention we did start notifying via email. I’m sorry that you can hear your neighbors, sometimes that is part of apartment living. If you have issues during quiet hours 10pm-7am, please let me know and we can address it accordingly. I would encourage you to reach out to me directly at 404-496-6075 or theplace.mgr@ram-mgt.com if you would like to further discuss anything. Thank you for your residency. Sincerely, Krista H.

              Thank you so much for the compliment to the maintenance team! As for the trash, you are correct, they service the community Sunday-Thursday; residents shouldn't be leaving trash outside of their home Friday-Saturday since we don't have services during that time. I will be happy to send out a friendly reminder of the do's and don'ts of trash. Sincerely, Krista H. Property Manager

                This is a great community! There are many perks on site and the staff is exceptional. The apartment was freshly painted before we moved in so it felt brand new. The space is arranged in an effective way. The two walk-in closets are especially convenient.

                  Not satisfied at all. The place has gone down the drain, poor management! Over time the facilities aged and were not kept up. I do not think that the management is responsive to resident needs at all.
