Out of all the things to be concerned about the last author was concerned about a non-issue. In the 4 years I've lived here it has never taken more than a few days to resolve a maint. request, unless a part needed to be ordered or the item itself needed to be replaced altogether! That is absurd! Everywhere you go you're going to have problems but as far as this community goes the problems are minimal. The neighbors are friendly and concerned individulas. I've never lived anywhere where the community as a whole is as close as it is here. It's almost like moving to Mayberry!!! Where the song from the T.V. series "Cheers" plays as you walk down the sidewalk. If you don't know what I'm talking about you were under a rock in the late 80's early 90's!!! GOOGLE IT!! The apartments are nice on the well maintained and the convenience of an onsite gym and pool sweeten the deal. As far as the trash goes, it's a compactor and I've only smelled it when it broke down so get a grip. I do have to admit that the location of the playground for the kids could have been better but it is what it is now and the kids have managed not for the most part ignore it. The property has never looked better so I'm no sure what these people are talking about. They're always doing something, from siding to repainting speedbumps and curbs, planting flowers, mowing lawns(I can appreciate this even when they wake me up before 8:30 and I don't have to be at work...maybe...depends on the day). As far as the staff, I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion so I'm going to voice mine. Nobody is perfect-NOBODY!!! So, having said that. Sure, the staff makes mistakes and I've been on the receiving end of that from time to time but I've also been on the receiving end of their apologies and admissions, their kindness and hospitality, as well as their determination to continue to serve with a higher standard. In the last 3 years the staff has remained the same and has visibly worked hard to really upgrade us. I have to say I'm proud when people come over and they see how beautiful the grounds are! As long as I've lived here last year was the first time this community did anything for us. They had a great pool party that lasted all day and that's when you saw how we come together. If you want a beautiful community that's alive, taken care of(by staff and residents)centrally located, and has outstanding schools(my kids go and I LOVE the school district-one of the best in the county) this is where you want to be. And for the record-I DO NOT WORK FOR THEM!!! I just love being here and wouldn't want to be anywhere else outside of Saybrooke with the exception of my own house. I truly have had my share of misunderstanding and gripes but that's just life...and you have to deal with that where ever you go.
