I moved here back in February 2015 and I must say that since being here it has been the WORST year and a half going on 2 years of my life. This is my first apartment so I can't complain much about the pricing and having my own space BUT.. I would not suggest anyone move here as long as the people that are in charge of management are still here. When I first moved in, Ms Frieda was the landlord and there was a girl named Rachel the worked the front desk. Ms. Frieda was tough and rude at times but she would work with you if you're in a situation. THEN we got a new landlord in November 2015, Her name is Robbin. I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LIKE HER! She is very rude and unprofessional. If you call to speak to her, she'll have the receptionist tell you that she is unavailable and to leave a number for her to return your call. SHE NEVER RETURNS CALLS... EVER!!!! Every time i went to the office to ask her or inform her about a situation, she was rude and acted like she had an attitude and didn't want to listen to anything I had to say. The people that live above me have no respect for me and I've had to file 3 COMPLAINTS against them because of the constant noise, running, stomping and wrestling that I hear AT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT!!! Most places have a rule where if there are 3 noise complaints filed against you, then you're going to be forced to move out. But did Robin do anything about it ??? HELL NO! All she did was send them a letter notifying them that a complaint was filed. and they still live above me to this very day, making hella noise EVERY DAMN DAY AND NIGHT. when I come home from a long day or night at work, I want peace and quiet. Those people above me make so much noise and they let their kids do whatever they want. That's just ONE part of the MANY problems... NOW let's talk about the parking. First of all, the parking here is absolutely RIDICULOUS!!!! My first month in this place I was coming home from work LATE because I got off at MIDNIGHT. There was nowhere to park at all so i parked on the corner near the side of the building by the entrance. The next morning I wake up to a $250 parking ticket for parking in the fire lane that I was not aware was a fire lane. most places paint their fire lanes RED not YELLOW! Anywho... on top of that... my car had been towed a total of 4 TIMES for some bs reason. It was just towed AGAIN LAST NIGHT/EARLY MORNING 8/16/16 and I had no idea. the tow company said it was because I was parked in a visitor space with a resident pass! AGAIN I worked until after MIDNIGHT Monday night 8/15/16 and coming home, there was NOWHERE to park so I parked by the pool not noticing that the spot had been labeled as a visitor spot. It was dark and at night there is a glare over the visitor label so I thought the spot was blacked out. I even went back out there last night to double and make sure i wasn't crazy. Point blank the current management is HORRIBLE and UNPROFESSIONAL and parking SUCKS!!!!!! Luckily one issue i'm thankful I haven't encountered yet is roaches or rodents and I'd like to keep it that way. Also I have noticed that there are these younger residents always hanging outside my building smoking, drinking, being loud and disrespectful. I came home late one night and saw 4 boys hanging out in the hallway right outside my apartment door in the hallway where the buildings connect. That is very uncomfortable for a single young lady who lives alone to come home to. This place makes me very uncomfortable and somebody higher up than management needs to be notified ASAP of this mess that's been made in this community. But until then, I'm stuck here. smh. I hope this helped anyone who was looking to move here.... DON'T!
