Resident 2013 - 2014

If I were a working professional, I would love to renew my lease. The apartments are very spacious and I personally like the location. However, as a student, it's just not worth the price you'll pay. This complex in particular will nickel-and-dime you constantly. Absolutely NOTHING is included in your rent price, so just add on roughly $200 extra to that monthly rent to get a real estimate. I've found many other complexes in Lawrence that include at least basics such as water, trash, and sewage. Don't be fooled by their special move-in pricing. I fell for that one year ago and now I'm looking to move because I can't afford their "regular" prices. Without that one-year discount, it's just not worth it for me. Also, the gym is CRAP and the management is lacking. There was someone new in the office almost every time I went in there.

    Just getting the maintenance guy to come fix the problem is like pulling water outta a rock. It's a great apartment though. Just find a way the office can fix this problem. We've called forever!

      DO NOT LIVE HERE!There are several reasons why you should not live here. 1. The staff is rarely in the office and when they are, they are completely useless. They look at you like you're speaking a foreign language when you ask them a question. We turned in our rent and got a call that it was $50 short, but according to our lease, we paid the right amount. What kind of a rental company doesn't know how much rent it?! 2. The unit is not in good shape and the staff doesn't care. We have to dry our laundry three times to get things dry and the staff says it's "working fine" - I don't know about you, but drying things 3x is not "FINE" it's BROKEN 3. There is NOT enough parking and the First Management staff will have your car towed. If I pay money to live somewhere, I expect to have a place to park. 4. When we moved in, the unit was filthy! I kept finding the former resident's belongings in the apartment. Totally unsanitary and gross. The management company knew and didn't care. 5. Plumbing sucks. My shower has never drained properly and the units aren't… See More>

        Love my apartment!

        I've lived here for a year now and decided to renew. I absolutely love it. The apartments are very spacious and nice for the price. It's in a safe part of Lawrence and its not student housing so its also very quiet. The office staff and maintenance worker are very helpful and friendly... even out side of the office. I will live here as long as I can!

          Wouldn't live here if it were the last place on earth

          Overall the office staff are rude, first management is rude, tenants are rude! Just don't rent here no matter what, office staff ignore serious problems, first management screams at you over the phone if you ask them to help you. For this price I could be living somewhere a lot nicer with people who actually want my business. Not safe either, there are always random older guys walking around smoking and people doing drugs in the parking lot. Glad im moving!!!

              Don't rent here!!!! You will regret it!!!

              Wow,this place is terrible. Maintenance is slow and never fixes the problems,you have to call five times and go into the office and they still won't fix something or make it worse. People let their dogs go number two wherever because the staff won't change the dog area trash for months. The place was DISGUSTING when I moved in. The carpet was stained and dirty and the place took 30 hours for me to clean. The staff refused to help me. This place isnt worth your time and energy..

                Good so far

                I moved into a two-bedroom in August. It is really big, I have a full size washer dryer in its own laundry room. My kitchen is huge compared to where I used to live. The ONLY thing I really hate is there is not a drawer in my kitchen wide enough for a silverware tray. The manager is friendly and very knowledgeable. I had a question about my water bill and we went over it together. No maintenance problems as of yet, aside from a loose tile in my kitchen. But it stays in place, so it does not bother me. Other than that, I have had no other major problems. The finishings are very nice and I feel like I got a good deal. The only thing I hear is people going up and down the stairs but it doesn't happen for hours on end, so it doesn't really bother me. I have no complaints other than what is listed and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place to live.

                  I ENJOYED LIVING HERE, HONESTLY

                  ok, let me say a few things to get this review started. I had the worst problems in the world when i lived at HighPointe. then againn, it was being managed by a total goon that was eventually fired. this really had me wondering about first management. considering that they pretty much OWN lawrence, i moved in to a property managed by tuckaway, which i must say was not all that bad. after my stay at tuckaway, i gave in and chose to give first management another try, and i'm glad i did. i really don't have anything too bad to say about canyon court and i'll tell you why. the complex is ALWAYS kept up. the guy that keeps the complex up is a pretty cool guy. the complex is newer, not that it is the best, but by far the best apartment i've lived at in the five years i've lived in lawrence. my washer and dryer have ALWAYS worked, and i have never had a problem with either, that alone is awesome. not to mention they are FULL SIZE. none of that stacked tiny washer and dryer crammed into a closet crap. my apartment was CLEAN when… See More>

                    nice place

                    First Management doesn't have the best rap, but the apartment complex is really pretty and the 3 bedroom is HUGE! I also really like the Manager, she was helpful and nice. I look forward to living there.

                      I enjoyed my time here

                      I lived at Canyon Court for 2 years and was really sad to leave the property. I loved the location and the apartment that I had. I do think that First Management had a problem keeping staff, since in the time that I lived there we went through 4 managers, 2 of which lacked all knowledge of what customer service is all about. Getting maintenance to come in and take work orders was a bit of an issue, since there was only one guy and we really worked at another property. In one instance the water in my toilet was running and I kept calling asking if it could be fixed. After a couple weeks, I came into the office to see when they could come in and fix it, and the manager snapped at me and said they didn't have a key to my unit, which I had no idea was the case. I would suggest living here because overall I had a positive experience and remember more good than bad, but keep in mind the staff will most likely always continue to change over and over.

                        Finally have a great property manager! That was the biggest problem. The apartments are great and so is clubhouse, pool and all the extra stuff, but I've lived here for 2 years and we've gone through 3 managers! Eh.

                          Do Not Move Here!!!

                          I hated my time at canyon court. It's not worth the money. The apartments are okay but the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in the surrounding apartments. The workout room is horrible because the machines are broken and the equipment is out dated and it's dirty. The management is okay but First Management is known for trying to nickel and dime you for everything. BEWARE!! My advice is to take pics during the inspection because when it comes time to check out they will charge you out the wazoo for anything and everything. If I had to do it all over again I would not live here. Avoid living at any first management properties..I have yet to hear one good thing about them.

                            100% Honest Opinion of Canyon Court

                            I feel I should write this as someone who lives in Canyon Court right now, and to anyone considering signing a lease here. I am a college senior who wanted to be away from the party scenes of Lawrence, so that I could just get done with school. I found Canyon Court and went to visit them. The apartment complex looked sooooooooo nice and after the tour of the model I was really excited to move in. Move-in day came and my apartment was probably the cleanest I have ever seen one be when you first move in. Could not find dirt or dust ANYWHERE. It was PERFECT. The appearance of Canyon Court is awesome, for anyone driving by or just walking through. HOWEVER, if you plan on LIVING at Canyon Court there are a few problems. First of all, I had and still have numerous staples that are in the floor. Most of them are where it changes from tile to carpet near the kitchen. I have asked them to come hammer down the nails, and they have, yet there are still nails and I have continuously cut my feet on them. The big problem for me is that… See More>

                                First Management is a True Pain

                                I don't fault the Canyon Court office staff; they seem to be really rather nice, but First Management Inc. is quite simply a bad landlord. They are totally inflexible, have little sense of customer service, and they seem to seek out ways to get every last nickel and dime out of you. Three small examples, not horrible things but representative of a larger problem. The late fees are huge, there is a little advertised carpet cleaning service requirement (plus that does not even guarantee that they are not going to charge you an additional fees for the carpet), and watch out for "move-out fees" -- areas of my apartmet clean enough for hospital procedures to be performed thereupon -- nevertheless, showed up as unclean when time came to get my security deposit back. The apartment complex facility itself is basically fine, but read your lease closely, very very very closely. And, beware of First Management Inc. I have lived in a number of different apartments over the years, but never felt like I had a landlord that cared so little about keeping my business. Which is why I am no longer with and… See More>

                                  lived here for one year and will never rent under first management again. They were totally unhelpful in issues with neighbors that we couldn't get resolved, the construction was shoddy and the staff were just overall uptight. On top of that, at the end of the year, they charged us late fees for rent even though our rent had always been in within the time alotted for grace period.<br>The complex manager was rude most of the time and I frankly felt uncomfortable dealing with the company as a whole.

                                      A good place to live? Do you work for First Management?

                                      Ok...get ready cause here is going to be a real review. First off, I am curious if the leasing agents write the good reviews. I read one saying the gym and pool were nice....pool, yes its fine...but have you seen what the other complexes have? HA! As for the gym, well...if you like a treadmill that barely runs...and bicycles that have a mind of their own...LIVE HERE!Parking is decent...unless you live on the south side...you will experience lots of trash and rubbage from the Bugzappers that live behind canyon court..and dont plan on the yard being mowed regularly. Oh...and I was told that we didnt have to make any deposits on the utilites...that they just needed to be transfered...right on liars! During the walk in..blinds needed to be replaced, carpets were never cleaned, food in between the stove and the counter, outlines of pictures in DIRT on the walls....and you know who is going to have to pay for ALL of these things when moving day arrives...me...(LISTEN TO THIS: when they give you the walk in inspection list upon move in...you nit pick your apartment to death...and make AMPLE comments...this will only save your --- in the end my friends)… See More>

                                          Look nice, but sloppily constructed and overpriced

                                          Apparently, they just threw this complex up... and once you live here, you figure it out! It's very pretty (both outside and inside) and they offered me a "special," so I took the apartment. But once I moved in, I discovered sawdust, nails lying around, spackle in weird places, sloppy painting jobs, and walls so thin I could hear my neighbor blowing his nose! I also didn't like that there were exposed pipes and wires and such next to the washer and dryer. I never had any maintenance problems, so I can't vouch for what everyone has said about the slow-response times. I do know, however, that they are very stingy about returning deposits and will dock you for every little thing. Also, for as much as you pay in rent, I don't think the pool and workout center are as nice as they should be. I'll end with some positives though: my one bedroom was a very good size, the balcony and the bathroom were huge, and the tile in the bathroom and kitchen was nice.

                                            A very nice complex, relatively quiet for the number of young, college age tenants there.<br>Maintenance is a J-O-K-E. My A/C was so bad that I stopped using it altogether. I had the service guy out twice within a week or two. My A/C was running constantly on 78 degree's, would not cool, etc.., <br>The tech told me that I needed to "blow dust off the thermostat". HAHAHAHA whatever. But, I tried it, no good. The second time, he changed the air filter and stated "normal operation". Thereafter, the unit was cycling on and off up to FOURTEEN times in a 30 minute period. Not normal operation.<br>I've left my phone numbers and asked them to call me but they don't. They are waiting for me to be there during the day. HELLO!!!! I work all day like most every other normal person in the world.<br>My A/C started to cycle on and off repeatedly
