Hallways and elevators are filthy. The hardwood floors have no seal left on them. There are roaches. It is incredibly overpriced and I cannot wait to move.

Hello, We are very sorry about your negative experiences with us. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us identify how we can improve the community. Our current team has been working on a number of projects including a large scale pipe replacement to fix the building's old and weakened system. Our current team was not in place to handle the worms in the pool, but we have not received any similar complaints recently. We will keep an eye on this issue just in case. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. If you would like to these or any other concerns more, feel free to contact us at [email protected] or (617) 354-0752.

Thank you; we do appreciate your honest feedback, and apologize that you are dissatsifed with some aspects of our community. We work hard each day to make sure all of our residents are happy and comfortable in their homes, and we read these reviews to help us learn how we can improve. I hope you and I can work together to make things right. As for your concern about pricing, we do adjust rates to best reflect the current market value for the types of apartments available. These rates can fluctuate daily, and we do our best to communicate rate changes to residents during the renewal process. We apologize for the hot water shut offs. We have not had to shut off hot water for several months, and will do our best to prevent this from happening again. We have recently completed several projects at the community, including elevator and laundry room renovations. Thank you for your patience while we worked to make improvements to Walden Park. As for the laundry prices, I have been the manager since February 2013, and the price has remained constant since then. Please let me know if you have any further feedback. I am available to you if you would like to talk about any of the issues you've mentioned. I can be reached in the office, or at [email protected] or at (617) 868-1151. Thank you.

We're sorry to hear you've had a bad experience. I am new to Walden Park, and am ensuring that our staff addresses some of the items you've mentioned here. Three of our four elevators are fully functional, and we are working on the fourth one. The improvements to the heating system should be completed by May. Additionally, we have just added two new treadmills to our 24-hour fitness center. We value you as a resident, and appreciate your patience as we upgrade our community. I hope that we can talk with you in person about your concerns and make things better. You can always reach me at [email protected] or at (617) 868-1151.

Thanks for writing a review and sharing your feedback. We take online reviews seriously, and are sorry to hear that you are not having a good experience. Regarding the hot water, we are working to resolve the issue, and are converting the building from oil to natural gas heat. Unfortunately, it is a large-scale project and will take some time. When the water went out, we responded immediately. We are working on modernizing the elevators and completely re-doing the mechanics so they are faster, safer, and more reliable. This project does require one elevator to be shut down for several months. The project was completed in our other building earlier this year, and was very successful. We appreciate your patience. The doors should not be propped open. Our vendors should know that, and we will reach out to them to clarify. Thank you for alerting us of this issue. We definitely want to make sure you're proud to call Walden Park your home. Please contact me at [email protected] or at (617) 868-1151 so that you and I can discuss your concerns and how we can make things better.

Don't move in, they are not what they appear to be. They will pretend that they are working on everything to make it perfect but in reality they are letting you move in during big renovations and increase the rent afterwards. Not worth it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your honest feedback. The team and I at Walden Park do take the time to read every review, and use the information to grow, make changes, and improve our community for everyone. As for your concern about pricing, we do adjust rates to best reflect the current market value for the types of apartments available. These rates can fluctuate daily, and we do our best to communicate rate changes to residents during the renewal process. You mentioned the customer satisfaction score on our website, and I just wanted to clarify that it comes from the surveys we send to residents on a regular basis. Seeing as though Equity has only managed Walden Park since October '11, the timing may mean we haven't sent one to you just yet. I would be happy to discuss any of your concerns with you in person.
