Resident 2013 - 2015

I love my apartment at Parkside Estates and think it is a great value for my money, the best in the area for sure! I love my fireplace and my gigantic kitchen. I have a spacious 2 bed 2 full bath and a huge balcony! I have lived here for 2 years- lots of great amenities for the price. Old cabinets and fixtures but brand new appliances. Downsides- parking becomes super messy even with resident only parking. My car has been scratched by a lot of people's car doors and my car was keyed sitting next to my own apartment all up and down the sides. $850 in repairs. Kids from the other section 8 apartment complexes nearby try to get into the pool all summer with no adults in sight. Kids playing outside brag about stealing stuff off peoples porches and out of their cars. The floors are not soundproof. You can hear everything above and below you, including smelling them if they smoke inside. The pool always smells a bit strange in the summer, like stinky feet, but they keep it clean. Almost all of the neighbors are awesome, Linda the property manager is the bomb- she gets stuff done asap when you tell her and always answers her phone. Maintenance doesn't do such an amazing job of fixing things, they get 'fixed' but they aren't always pretty. Not back to the same aesthetic levels as before they broke. but they do come out right away.

    I hope that you have seen many positive changes over the past few months. We have restaffed our maintenance team. I do not tolerate sloppy repairs and lack of regard for the aesthetics. We are now transitioning to a smoke free property. All new residents must sign a no smoking agreement. Current tenants will need to sign it if they want to renew the lease. This policy has been well received by my residents. We have a neighborhood watch program. The Glendale Heights Police Department came to our community meeting to discuss ways to KEEP our property safe. The PD monitors our property, we do not have any issues that should be of concern to my residents. All tenants are encouraged to be proactive. If anyone looks like they do not belong, call the police. We have installed security cameras at the pool. We are renovating the apartments.
