I wanted to say I am so sorry you had a bad experience here at Ashley Square Apartment Homes. At Ashley Square Apartment Homes all our employees are drug free and we do drug testing on all our employees. We also do pest control every other month in all the units, so we can be pest free. We love our pets here and only time we get upset is when people don't follow the rules, like pick after their pets and ect. We do wish you luck in your new place. I do wished we could had heard from you while you lived here to work on the things you had troubles with.

I am sorry all these things happen to you, Since July 2010 Ashley Square has a new Manager. Since then we have work hard on the water leaks and I believe we have then all fixed. Yes we did have murder before I came here and it was a horrible thing but it does not characterize the community of Ashley Square at all. I believe we have the greatest residents here.
