ALL PEOPLE SEEKING A PLACE TO STAY AVOID The Blairs AT ALL COST PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE EVEN VIEWING THE APARTMENT. Ill first start by saying I love reviews and I alway try to give places the benefit of doubt when I encounter negative reviews. Well when it comes to this place that was my mistake. This experience has been so horrible that I am up at 10:42PM after a dreaded long day to EXPRESS how The Blairs has made my transition into Maryland less than satisfactory. I would have NEVER wrote a review if they resolved the issue but clearly they have not since I am leaving this review for you all today. Besides the incompetent leasing office, I have had issues since day one of moving into my unit. The VERY first night of moving in a roach appeared. I have only lived in my unit for about 3 1/2 weeks. There have been roaches SINCE DAY ONE daily. They have came from the kitchen and bathroom areas. We have kept the place SPOTLESS. We take all trash to the trash chute immediately and spray every morning and night. The problem still persist. We have done more than the leasing office who is OBLIGATED by Montgomery County Housing Code to take care of pest issues. This has been a large inconvenience to my roommate and I. We have to keep the lights on every night fearful a roach will come out if we turn the lights off. It is an inconvenience to spend 15-20mins spraying before we leave in the morning and 15-20mins spraying before bed every night. It is an inconvenience and stressful to be fearful that a roach will appear when I walk into my bathroom. It is inconvenient to be fearful while cooking that a roach will appear on the counter WHICH HAS HAPPENED AND MAKES ME NOT WANT TO COOK IN MY OWN HOME. The business office claims they are sincerely sorry and are working diligently to resolve the issue but the problem still remains and they don't do anything besides say sorry. I don't understand how there is a roach problem in a new apartment when we asked for them to spray for pest prior to move in. When I asked if the apartment was even sprayed the man in the business office said "there is no way of tracking it and he can not give me a definite answer." The building has a roach problem in general. When parking my car in the garage there was a roach in the garage as well. This is a roach infested apartment complex and I am proud to leave this review on the basis of saving someone else from experience such a tragedy and inconvenience. To The Blairs: Don't leave me any response saying your sad to hear that my experience has been less then excellent. Instead please provide a effective solution to this problem. ALSO, when my roommate comes to you expressing the problem we are having it is HIGHLY inappropriate to offer her a bottle of wine as a solution. This is directed to Riley. Please and thank you. I would like some professionalism from the place I pay to live.
