Resident 2021 - 2023

It's ok

The price is decent. It's very quiet. Starting to go downhill since the on-site management position was eliminated. Constant hot water issues. Lived here 2 years. The water heaters can't keep up with the number of people living in a building. Currently on the 4th… See More >

    I have seen people come look at these apartments and I want to tell them to run not walk from this place. I am so glad that we don't live there anymore. The maintenance staff is only there 2 days a week. SAVE all… See More >

      I lived at Deerfield from 1998 to 2000 and the mangement at that time was worthless and not very timly. Fast forward to this week. I applied for an apartment and worked with Sandy in the office. She was very helpful and knew… See More >

        SO much to say here... 1. Management does not respect your privacy and neither do your neighbors. Has phone calls constantly about stupid complaints... Felt like we were being watched. 2. Parking sucks. Usually have to park in the visitor section which is even LIMITED… See More >

          Do not live here! This is a breeding ground for vandalism. Vandalism has been brought to the attention of the property manager for this complex. But they do not care. Cars are constantly having there windows broken out. Office management will inform you that security… See More >

                      First of all, if you currently live at Deerfield or any other Goldmark property, don't bother cleaning before you move out because you're not going to get your deposit back. I recently moved out of Deerfield only to get $45.00 out of $300.00!! Seriously not… See More >

                        I moved into Deerfield April of 2011, it was nice at first but then I started having issues with not being able to get hot water. The first time the maintainence guy came to check it out, he left a note. It said "make sure… See More >

                          I would never live here again. Parking is awful! If you're not home at 5pm or earlier, you'll be parking either back in the dark guest parking or at the gas station down the road (and that's real nice when you're 7 months pregnant). You… See More >

                            I only lived there for about half a year because it was such a horrible experience. It was far too expensive for what little space you got in the apartment. The dish washer broke one time and they came and fixed it, but it literally… See More >
