ChrisChance • Resident • 2002 - 2004 Not Recommended
I've read the previous comments from people who lived here 1999-2000 and 2000-2001, but I can only assume that the quality of management has gone straight down.<br><br>In my two years of living here, I have certainly found the apartments to be old and in need of complete renovation. My bathroom ceiling poured water down (not just a drip) several times, and water rushed up under my carpet in the hallway a few times.<br><br>The maintenance staff are good. Don't misunderstand me. It's entirely the fault of unfriendly, inefficient management. I had to make several maintenance calls during my time here, and every single time the manager I spoke to made me feel like I was inconveniencing her by making her do something. She hung up on me once in the middle of a request to fix something in the apartment that was broken because it was so old.<br><br>I was always friendly and polite with the management, although I learned quickly to expect none of it in return. I can only assume that because of Maxwell Terrace's location, they are able to fill any empty apartment very quickly. This means they don't have to keep any resident happy for long. If you decide not to renew your lease, they can just pull someone from the pool of music students wishing to be close to school.<br><br>I lived in a one-bedroom apartment, and it was definitely not worth the $500 per month. Not for the service I received.<br><br>05/13/2004 Update:<br>It has been a long time since I have seen or spoken to the manager who was always so rude to me. It may be she has changed jobs. The new people seem nicer, at least. <br><br>A few days ago I moved into Canterbury House Apts. (deleted)<br><br>Feb. 2007 update:<br>Forget what I said about Canterbury House. It's not so great these days, I hear. Just read the reviews!
