Avalon at Northbrook
Hell-in-Avalon • Resident • 2005 Not Recommended
We moved here at the end of August 2005. So far I have had the following problems:<br><br>1.Inch of water on my kitchen floor due to a leak from something in the upstairs apartment.<br>2.The so-called security alarms didn't work at all then it took weeks for the apartment maintance to come fix it. Because one of the desk workers got confused, then they couldn't work around my son's nap time to get it fixed. Then after they finally came the said the fixed it, and it took them two more trips to fix all the alarms.<br>3.Now there is a problem with the gas! They quoted us around $75-$80 dollars a month in gas and electric combined. Our gas bill for the month of Aug. to Sept. is $86 ALONE!! And what did Avalon have to say, "The gas isn't our problem!" <br>4.The noisey neighbors upstairs took it upon themselves to run up and down the stairs at 1:00 in the morning. I was then assured they were moving and that would be the end of it. They left out the part of the nice but loud cleaning crew painting and bowling upstairs for the next two weeks. The stairs to all the upstairs apts. run throught the middle of the living room in the downstairs apartments. LOUD!!!<br>5.THE BUGS!! I have killed 11 spiders in two days!! IN MY APARTMENT!! They were suppose to take care of the problem with Orkin, but they never came to spray, and if they did, they didn't spray inside which is where the problem is!!!<br><br>I have read some of the other reviews and I couldn't agree more with them. Some of them are indeed fake, others are dead on. The staff (even the maintance men) are such sweet nice people. But they don't have their act together at all. For damn near $800 a month in rent you would think the community would be as luxurious as they claim to be.
