Theft/Not Worth the Price

I moved here when it was Avalon and it was great. Then they got new management and it has been a terrible experience. Packages have been stolen, I contacted management about the video surveillance and they ignored my request. I also had a package that needed to be refrigerated and unfortunately I was away for the day so I asked management if they would mind placing the box in the designated fridge in the mailroom, James assured me he would do it. When I got back, the box was still in the floor (not in the fridge) of the package room. My rent went up $600 a month after 1 year of living here. Some of the residents don’t respect the quiet times and are often blasting music on their balconies until 2am (management does nothing) The leasing office and management doesn’t care about anything except filling empty apartments. Now I understand why turnover is so prevalent and no one stays for long.… See More>

    Terrible Management

    Our rent went up $600 a month more ever since the new company took over. We have outdated appliances, our delivery packages have been stolen. Garbage dumpsters are constantly overflowing, it smells awful! The leasing manager can not be bothered with the residents, she needs to find a new job because she is clearly unhappy here, as are all the residents.

            It was ok. Good location. Lack of parking. Close to a Walmart. Decent place but I moved on to a nicer place. Nobody stayed for long. Toilets always clogged. Trash always overflowed. Close to train station.

              Fine temporary residence. Very corporate/money mindset. Seems all about cycling renters and superficial grounds maintenance. Fix mulch but not potholes. No serious complaints, but no huge raves either.

                I Just signed my lease for the 3rd year with this outstanding community! I am very picky about apartments and I honestly can't find a thing wrong with Avalon Sharon...its well worth the rent money...you can't hear your neighbors like most apartment communities...office staff (Andrea) is amazing as well as the Maintenance guys...all outstanding staff. The grounds and the whole community are kept in tip top shape. You won't be disappointed!!! I would give it 10 stars if it allowed me too.

                  Couldn't ask for much more. Great location right near both rt. 1 and 95, making it easy to commute to work. No issues, neighbors are nice yet respectful of privacy and the place is basically brand new. You get what you pay for.

                    Very friendly staff and easy to work with. Very nice community with all the amenities I needed and a great location. The buildings are very well built from a energy efficient perspective but the floors are unusually creaky for a building this new. Never a parking issue yet but it would be nice if the visitor spots were more evenly distributed around the property.

                              Avalon is my first apartment living experience in over 30 years and I'm happy to say it has worked out well with a quiet and super well maintained environment. Having access to a garage, a nice pool and a great work out area makes a big difference in the overall value of the place.

My son loves the playground and there are plenty of families with young children so its great. It's a very peaceful environment

                                    I was just here visiting my family, and have never felt so unwelcomed. As a guest you have limited places to park. Most of the time tenants are parked in them. Over Labor Day weekend my car was taken in the middle of the night. They say towed; I say stolen. Who takes someones vehicle between the hours of 10:30 PM and 6:30 AM...Saturday into Sunday. Not only did this happen but my car was damaged and they will not be responsible and take care of it. Since all the guests spaces were filled I had nowhere to park. I called them and I was basically told it was private property and there fore I was trespassing. Are you kidding me?? People who live there have had the same thing done to them. I counted 21 cars that were there illegally, by their terms, Monday before I left and no one seemed to care. I am out 150.00 dollars and my car is damaged. I would never live in this place. I cleaned up after my dog, but others sure did not. People threw trash all over… See More>

                                        Great apartment complex with modern appliances. Great location with easy access to Route 1 and 95. Right near restaurants and a mall. The only issue is that trash builds up near the main trash disposal unit, but this is due to personal laziness of tenants and not due to the management. The tenants need to open the door and throw the trash in. Once one person leaves trash outside, it leads to a trickle down effect. Overall I highly recommend this complex.

                                          The community is nice and peaceful, but the parking situation is highly annoying, there's never any close parking to your apartment building, and it makes it tough when you have little children and when you have to carry large or heavy items from your car. The playground are should also be catered to all kids ages, not just toddlers. The buzzer on the door is so loud and can be heard while sleeping. My building is on the side where the expressway is, so I hear all the loud cars and bikes that go by. It takes maintance a few days to get to requests that are placed. There is even a quiet time where residents should consider keeping things quiet such as no washing clothes after certain hours, and having gatherings should end early, as well as just over all activities should be kept down which is fine at times, but it shouldn't be a requirement. I just moved here a few months ago so these are the things I have noticed since I have moved in. Other than that, it is a pretty quiet area, and the people in my building seem to be pretty friendly.

                                            This is a very tricky place to review. On the one hand, it s very nice and friendly, with lots of green grass areas, a wonderful view, great location, and nice and roomy apartments with tall ceilings and gas stoves and laundry. On the other hand they re incredibly greedy, raise prices constantly, and seem more interested in pushing you out the door than in making this feel like home. I ve lived here for 4 years and watched my rent escalate more than 30% since then, including a 10% increase this year alone. At the same time, you talk to other tenants who are listed as affordable and who are getting rates $500/month lower. Then there are a lot of little things that get under your skin... For instance, they only clean the property in the summer. The fall, winter, and spring the garbage cans are removed and garbage piles up and sits, which is made all the more obvious when the foliage dies and you understand that it normally hides everything. Last year there was a spare tire sitting on the side of the road for 2 months. This year it was a dead christmas tree. The maintenance staff and office staff… See More>

                                              I have lived at Avalon for two years and enjoyed a very light airy apt. that faced conservation land. It was perfect for this time in my life. I found parking not a problem. I liked worked with staff and maintenance and found people responsive to my issues. I loved the laundry room which was also great for storage. The closets are huge. Two people live very comfortably and having the second bedroom was great for guests. I liked the option to use the pool. I would still be here except that the rent when up also $200/yr that I stayed here. I found that onerous and decided to buy something as the rent was larger than a mortgage I could get. Too bad. It is a lovely place to live. ellenweins@msn.com

                                                things have changed at sharon avalon quite a bit since i first moved in. none of the original "restrictions" have been followed and i think if they had kept to the restrictions the avalon would be quite a nice place to live. the aparment themselves are quite nice with great layouts. unfortunately the hallways and the grounds arent always kept up with. the hallways seem to always need to be vacuumed and the walls are all marked up and look dirty. parking can be quite tricky at times. there was suppose to be assigned parking but that was never followed through with so if you come home "late" (after 10 pm) its pretty much guaranteed youll be parking in front of a building that is not yours. they did try to address the parking issue by having a tow company come and tow all cars without the sharon avalon tag but the problem is the visitor parking has 12 spots i think which is not nearly enough. the gym is tiny but adequate so long as you belong to a health club elsewhere and only use it on occasion.

                                                  I am currently living here with my wife and pets. We are getting ready to leave, unfortunately, due to a work transfer. The Staff here is friendly and accommodating and never intrudes except when they have to. Although they had a recent break in here, it is overall very safe. The community here is very neighborly and everyone keeps to themselves but are also pleasant and social. Great place for pets! The highway is right next store. All the stores and restaurants are 5 minutes away. If there is anything negative to say I guess it would be the price, and you need a car to live here as walking outside the compound is very dangerous. I have lived in other similar complexes in Worcester and in Burlington; this place is much better. I recommend living here.
