Brookside Park Apartments
Resident · 2011
I have been living here for about 3 months now. This is the first time I have ever lived in an apartment, I have always lived in single family homes in nice neighborhoods with big yards. I've read previous reviews about the change of management (Debbie) and the maintenance. I don't doubt that when it changed there were problems, but it appears they've been here awhile and I am more than happy. My husband came with me to look at the apartment although he doesn't live here as he deployed before I moved in. Debbie told him they don't deal with "riff raff" here, they will evict you. She knew from the beginning that we were looking for a place for me and our two boys that he would not be here. She has given us special pricing, and the maintenance man does things for me he isn't supposed to do (like change lightbulbs, he installed a top door lock so my toddler can't escape) because they know I don't have a man around, but I have a feeling they do this for anyone who needs help, there are a lot of elderly people and widows here, I'd imagine they do the same for them. Debbie THE NICEST manager I met when previewing apartments around town (the lady at saddlebrook is a NIGHTMARE)Mark is a great handy man, he shows up the same day you call something in, there is another guy he is the "night guy" Mike, but I see him during the day, he is always picking up trash and spraying, there is no parking issue here, but I live in the back building where there are two extra lots, everyone has ONE assigned parking spot. I've been swimming twice, the pool was clean both times. As far as I know there aren't irresponsible loud rude neighbors that live here, but I can only speak for certain in my building, although I don't see those types walking around. There are a lot of retired people and single moms living in the place. I have never once heard loud music or noise at any time of day here. The only negative thing I can say is that there is a widow who lives on the first floor she said her electric bill was $250 one winter month because it gets so cold and the electric company said this place has the highest bills. I don't know yet as I haven't been here during the winter. I came into a nice clean apartment, new carpets freshly painted walls, and they professionally clean it between tenants, so it was almost like a brand new apartment! Love this place!
