Resident • 2006 - 2007 Not Recommended
First off, I would like to say that they own all of the rental property in Decatur, so it is hard not to deal with Swartz properties. I am currently living in Country Trails, a really out dated unkept property. Before I moved in I was told that the apartment would be painted and the carpets completely cleaned, ummm....if you consider spot painting over nail holes and a poorly vacuumed carpet as what I was promised then you'll love it here. Things were ok for about a month or two after that, then one night my ceiling fell in, and i'm not exaggerating, it was a four by six( maybe seven) foot hole in my ceiling! And the great thing about it is they didn't fix it for a MONTH and only notified me once about what was going on with my apartment and didn't even do anything for my rent or anything. Also, anytime I call to inform Swartz Properties of a problem, they never get in touch with me and if they do then it's about a month too late. Recently, the only outside light needed to have the bulb replaced and it didn't happen until a person's car was broken into. My water-heater also overflowed( blew up) and I didn't even realize until a maintenance man knocked on my door, because it had leaked down two floors. Oh yeah, parking is a nightmare, due to limited spots tenants are forced to double park on the street and I have to make a three point turn in the morning to get out of my spot. The laundry facilities are a joke, the machines are from the time the building was constructed, circa 1950/60's, and the wonderful, hear the sarcasm, neighbors I have play hide and go seek with my clothes. I think this may be because they are white thrash and couldn't afford a third of the clothing I have. Also, they provide these lovely, again the sarcasm, storage units and another lovely neighbor of mine put a lock that wasn't mine on the storage unit and I called to have it removed and it has been at least three months and it hasn't been removed! So if you love a cramped apartment, with people willing to do absolutely nothing for you, then let me endorse Swartz Properties 100%, and say congratulations for renting from some of the worst people EVER!!!
