Water's Edge Apartments Manager10/15/2013

Please contact the office to further explain exactly what you are referring to. We have had the same move in special for a little over 30 days now and have not changed it at all, let alone every "two minutes". Additionally, renewal offers are good for 14 days. A resident would not be aware of who is being evicted or who is moving out for personal reasons, therefore the statement that "we evict people constantly" is not accurate information. There is not an apartment community out there that allows residents to live for free. Due to the legal process for eviction, it takes anywhere from 45 - 60 days to evict, therefore a resident would have to be pretty far behind to be evicted and it would be absolutely warranted at that point. Additionally, when a resident constantly disturbs their neighbors and/or breaks the rules that are in place to protect everyone, yes, we will evict them as well, that's the right thing to do. Anyone who is considering moving here will appreciate that fact. You are welcome to comparison shop for rent, as you had the opportunity to do when you decided to sign a lease here, we are comparatively priced to comparable communities in comparable locations with similar amenities. Again, I urge you to give us the opportunity to provide you with good customer service by stopping by the office to have a conversation about the issue that you need resolved. Although, good customer service does not mean we can let you get behind on your rent.

This is not accurate - you were present and attempting to add/change roommates. We do not, and have not ever given out resident information without permission.

Water's Edge Apartments Manager08/02/2013

This is not an anonymous review and was not written by a member of the staff. Our residents are wonderful people and far from "shady" as this responder would like you to believe. The majority of our residents are extremely happy with their apartment and the community.The only ones that are not, are those that don't want to follow the rules created to protect everyone peaceable enjoyment of the community and/or not pay their rent. We just renewed 24 of 26 leases expiring in the month of July, those facts speak for themselves. I would encourage the responder to this review to contact the office to discuss the issues, if you are a current resident, although I suspect you are not. When we purchased Water's Edge two years ago, we did not have, and still do not have, one single problem with roaches or any other pests. We have a pest control that comes at least once per month for preventative maintenance. The Fire Code does not allow grills to be used near a commercial structure and therefore, we must enforce the rules. If other apartment communities do not enforce the same regulations, they are putting their residents in danger of losing their homes and personal belongings in a fire. I recently had a conversation with a local Police Officer who commended us on the changes that we have made over the past two years. I would encourage anyone to contact the Police Department for the facts.
