I called them up and they said they had a one bedroom available. I went over, they showed it to me. It was small for the price but other than that, it was exactly what I was looking for and where I wanted it to… See More>

    Worst college experience yet- LOUD! RUDE MANAGER! NO WORTH THE MONEY!

    Before I had moved in, I was really excited. The place appears to be really nice, awesome new appliances and seemingly nice flooring, comes with furniture, plenty of lighting and it's spacious. When I actually moved in, it was a whole different realm. First of… See More>

      I moved here at the beginning of my freshman year and I am moving out for my sophomore year. When I first came to look at these apartments they looked so nice, but now that ive been living here things fall apart, you can hear… See More>

        Great place but too small & expensive

        I enjoyed living here and hated to move but with the lack of square footage and the significant rent increase we were facing, we had no choice but to move. We loved the area because a lot of things were within walking distance. It was… See More>

          Friendly staff and Awesome living spaces

          What attracted me to Mallard Creek at first was the great rates, location right off 59, and the pool. Being there for the last 4 months, there are so many other things I never would have expected to find. The ladies in the office are… See More>

            Where did the last manager go?

            Things are falling apart since she left. I requested a work order last Monday, and nobody came to my Apt yet. The current office staff are so rude. They entered my apt without my permission. Can't wait till the end of my lease? I DO… See More>

              Best place to live!!

              I can't think of a better place to live. The property manager and all the staff team members provide great customer service. Mallard Creek is completely controlled access, so I feel safe. Living here really is a treat. There are great views, staff, and rooms. Best… See More>

                Three of last four managers rude and crabby

                Where does Bigos Management find these people? I don't think they FIND them. I think they MAKE them. Corporate HQ puts heavy pressure on the site managers to cut costs, fill apartments, and reduce churn rate. Bigos managers always act stressed… See More>

                  Odor problem

                  In the evening, the entire building reeks of curry and garlic. The new hallway carpet has less padding underneath. Now there are gaps under all apartment doors, so you smell your neighbor s cooking. Plus the doors all slam like jail cells… See More>

                    Do not move here

                    Pros: 1 indoor parking spot, (fake) marble countertops, (fake) birch cabinets, new stainless steel appliances (including dishwasher), washer/dryer in unit Cons: The windows leak TONS of air and the fact that the heat is only on for a few months makes for freezing temperatures at night… See More>

                      Horrible Apartment Manager

                      When I originally signed my lease I was very happy with the staff here. They were all very polite, they got things done, and they stood by what they said. The apartments are very nice all stainless steal, washer/dryer, walk in closet, underground parking, community… See More>

                        I considered moving to Mallard Creek based on the recent remodeling. The kitchens are nice, but the tile and tubs in the bathroon were old and patched. The wall air conditioners looked about 30 years old - and there's no air conditioner in the master… See More>

                          I have lived in many apartments in my time, and this has been by far the best! There is no smoking, which is great. I never heard any of my neighbors. The appliances were stainless steel and brand new. The maintenance… See More>
