NEVER RENT HERE!!!

Absolutely the WORST experience I’ve ever had with a complex. From multiple lies, to refusal to do actual maintenance work. To their maintenance guy trying to pull insurance fraud on me and my fiancée, to the same maintenance man lying to police, to illegally claiming I owe a BIG debt much bigger than any rent (when I paid everything on time), to also never be in office and not answering any phone calls, to also hiding that fact that I owed ANYTHING until 3 months later when I got my FIRST notice that I owed anything…I am so serious, these people are shady. NEVER RENT HERE UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR CREDIT TO GO DOWN WITH YOU!!!!

    I implore you, RUN away. I don't even know where to begin. First, it usually takes maintenance FOREVER to get to anything. My dryer caught on fire due to clogged dryer vents. There were 2 separate issues from 2 floors above me (ignored by mgmt & maintenance) that caused a leak into my apartment. Half of the fence is missing on the backside so it makes it very easy for the seedy characters and meth heads to creep through at night and dumpster dive and steal. It occurs almost on a nightly basis during the warmer weather. When I asked about this (over a year ago now) the response was "everytime we fix it they kick out boards so they can get through." So just dont have a fence, makes sense right? Not like the management has to live with the problems it brings. Things have been stolen off my porch and other residents porches. License plates get stolen, my truck got broken into and tools stolen (again, has also happened to other residents) my neighbor has had two vehicles broken into. My other neighbor GOT HIS TRUCK STOLEN a day ago. I can't even sleep some nights because I'm… See More>

      DO NOT, I REPEAT SINCERELY, DO NOT RENT HERE!!!! RUN FAST! If I could give Williamsburg a 0, and Management a negative I would! I moved to Williamsburg in April 2016, and moved out last Thursday, and it has been nothing but hell and disrespect! I put in countless complaints and work orders, which resulted in Diane Kessler and Lauren Bullard "rescinding my renewal offer." My attorney and I called Williamsburg to get a CLEAR, LEGAL reason for them to not renew my lease and Diane couldn't give one! We asked to speak with the Nolan Estate to verify this decision (because we didnt want heresay) and She literally said "Well she's not happy here. I don't have to give a reason" and hung up the phone in our faces! I contacted a Newspaper representative, and not only did he tell me Diane hung up the phone in his face when he called too, but when he went by the office he was immediately asked, very rude if he was there for me! So basically there you have it, instead of them communicating with maintenance to resolve my issues, they decided they didn't want to resolve my maintenance orders and… See More>

        Nolan (this is who owns Williamsburg) are by far the worst people I have ever rented from. I almost feel a duty to warn others and urge them to look elsewhere for rentals. The maintenance department is good and the property may appear scenic, but do not be deceived. Nolan management are awful people to deal with and do not care at all about their tenants.

          I am not one to write reviews but I feel warning anyone who is considering this complex is much needed. I travel for work and I am gone every other week. I have had several issues that have gone unresolved and are still currently unresolved. When I moved into my apartment, I complained of tobacco smell so I was told that since they painted, the smell would go away. However, when I moved in, there were two cigarette butts in the toilet!! Obviously, the maintenance also smoke in the units while working on tickets. I travel and work in a professional environment and I continously smell smoke on my clothes. I have called and complained numerous times about this and each time they have no resolution. I have tried deodorizing my carpet, buying countless air fresheners, closing the air vents, etc. I also suggested a ceiling fan which was also denied. The next issue was a HUGE water leak in my ceiling that almost ruined my TV if I hadn't noticed. This took them over 2 weeks to come and fix. There is also rust in my vents that I have asked if they can come clean out. The next… See More>

              The maintenance guys, Scott and Jordan, are the best thing about this complex. They've been wonderfully responsive, quick, attentive and competent whenever I've needed anything repaired or replaced. They have been considerate and accommodating about my daytime sleep schedule, and they are 100% trustworthy. I really like the location. It is convenient to my workplace and within walking distance of many stores and restaurants. At the same time, it feels secluded because it has a pond and is bordered by woods on two sides and a field on another and because it's a couple of blocks from the nearest busy street. I also love the built-in washer and dryer and walk-in closet. The electricity bill has been low for me. Not everything is perfect, but for me the problems have been easy to deal with or overlook. Much of the parking lot is lined with pine trees that drip sap, so I don't park under a pine tree. Trains frequently pass by on the tracks about a block away (They don't blare their horns.), but I wear foam earplugs to sleep anyway and quickly adjusted to the sound. And my one-bedroom unit isn't as large as the brochure claims, but… See More>

                I moved here just this past Oct. Had to find a place fast. They were very helpful getting me in as fast as they did here. I am very happy with this complex. The folks that work in the office are very friendly and the maintance man is very good to make sure and take care of what ever problems I have. was very pleased to learn I could bring my dogs with a small extra fee each month. Also have to option to park under the awnings if need be threw the winter months for a small additional fee.

                    I moved into my 2 bedroom apartment in February of this year from St. Louis. I had not seen the apartment at all; just photos of different layouts on their website. The staff was very helpful over the phone and email as I was transitioning to move here. When I finally came here, I was incredibly happy with my decision. I love the apartment itself (its only downfall is the narrowness of the living room area where you first walk in). My kitchen and bedrooms make me very happy - plenty of room and lighting in the kitchen, with full-size appliances. I bake (a lot), so that was incredibly important. I was won over by the fact that the apartment came with a washer and dryer inside of the unit, and it is full-size and new. When I've needed anything maintenance-related, I called up to the front desk (even late in the day while I was at work) and every time, it was taken care of by the time I got home, though I would have expected the next day instead. The rent is reasonable, and I have minimal noise issues. Just your typical "having a neighbor above you" stuff.… See More>

                      I am getting ready to renew my lease for the fourth year. Having lived in several apartment complexes over the years. I really like living here, to begin with there is the pond with geese and ducks giving the property a park like feel. The washer and dryer in every unit is really convenient. It means a lot to me to be able to keep my dog. The swimming pool is really kept up nicely. The staff here is amazing, any work I have requested done is taken care of immediately. Since the arrival of the maintenance supervisor Scott I have seen many improvements to the property. More lighting at night for the safety of the tenants. I already felt safe living here, for a single gal thats important. Every day the staff is out picking up any trash that might be around, even the manager makes rounds every morning checking on things. Being on a llmited income I find the rent very affordable, the utilities reasonable. If your looking for an apartment look here.

                        We have lived at Williamssburg Square for 4 years. We have never had any problems with office staff or maintenance. The rent is very reasonable and so is the utilities. I would recommend this apartment complex to anyone.

                            We moved in last spring and immediately had problems. The stove was broke and had to be replaced but not after several attempts to correct. The utillities are insane. INSANE! During the summer months the utilities crept up to over $400 a month and in the winter around $200. The apartment is all electric so if you are struggling the utility company will shut you off in the winter months only being a a few weeks behind regardless how cold. The cable is horrible. Comcast notified us that its because the wiring in the apartment is so old and would have to get the complex to pay for its update which they wont. So we lose internet and cable frequently. The windows are horrible. Our pillows literally freeze to the window over our bed. Some of the people that come into the apartments are sketchy at best. Vehicles have been broken into repeatedly. If you have neighbors that smoke be prepared to clean constantly due to the fact it seeps into your unit. Our walls have to be washed all the time due to tobacco use in another unit. Dryer is old and take 2… See More>

The office manager didn't care about your needs and it took forever for me to get my issues fixed in my apartment.. I use to call and leave messages and they Never returned my call. I wouldn't recommend NO ONE to MOVE HERE...

                                We rented at Williamsburg Square Apartments for three months because we were getting ready to move into a house. We never would have if it hadn't been for that fact. They are over priced for what you get. The fridge didn't work upon moving in and it took a week to get a new one, so we had to buy bags of ice so our food wouldn't spoil. Even though we moved in on a holiday weekend, maintenance was supposed to be on call during weekends. We called, called and called. Finally, our call was answered and we were told someone would be up to help. NOPE! Oh, and when they moved the fridge out of the apartment, it leaked dark, dirty water all over the carpet from the kitchen to the front door and guess who had to clean that up???? ME! The biggest complaint: The entire apartment was infested with Brown Recluse Spiders. We found them everywhere...Crawling up walls, under our comforter on our bed, in closets, the tub and in the closet where the water heater was, which was located in our daughters room.

                                      My wife and I just renewed our lease here at WS. The first year was very bad to be honest, things were fixed slowly, trash was piling up etc. that is, until Scott and Ryan came along. These maintenance guys are awesome. They fix things right the first time and are quick to get the job done. If they ever quit, we will not be renewing again. Since being here at WS we have seen 4-5 maintenance guys come and go and several of them were carried off by cop cars if I remember right. However, Scott and Ryan know how to get things done and treat us with respect, not just lip service like so many others. If they leave, we leave, period.

                                        The fees are not told to you right. I was told it would only be 45 dollars to get approved. I signed all the papers and they approved me immediately(so they say) I kept asking if there were a bottom apt available because I have young children and never got an answer. They kept telling me they needed copies of my pay stubs. I never sent them, and they still say they approved me immediately. They blew me off for at least three days. Then they had the nerve to send me a bill for this so called ADMINISTRATION FEE. I never said I was going to move in-- never had a move in date. Yet they say I owe the money and it is non-refundable. Sounds to me like they should've collected all that while taking the application then telling me it was non-refundable. Not asking for it after the fact that I saw the rest of these reviews and would never consider living there.

                                          I have lived here since the beginning of january and have enjoyed it. Any issue I have had was resolved in a very timely manner. It is in a great location, close to the highway but still far enough away to avoid the noise. I love that I have a washer and dryer in my unit and it is very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend Williamsburg Square to anyone looking for an apartment! I can't wait to use the pool!

                                            I started living in this apartment for about 2 months when i realized half of the so called "nice eletrical equitment" started falling apart. The fridge shutdown, then the carpet started coming apart and then i come to find out there are stains all over my carpet. Now you would think that the front desk people would do something about all the complaints i always leave for them but no, i have to resort to looking at this mess every day. And my electric went out for almost a week before they could come and fix it, what a joke!!! The pool is gross and the biuldings are about to fall apart, and the "emergency line" that they say is always open to the "people" never is. If you have a real emergency better call either the fire deparment or the police cause these people never will ever call once you sign that lease, oh and did i meantion my car was broken into several times. Never will i live here again and i feel sorry for those people who live there now!

The manager hannah is great, she is quick, to fix any problem you have i find the office staff, warm, friendly and anxious to help. The maintenance staff of scott and ryan are some of the best, scott is quick, effecient, and professional. ryan has always been so helpful, everything is fixed very quickly, the staff here makes living here a place you want to come home to everynight. i have found they go out of the their way to make your life easier, the washer and dryer in the apartments is so convenient. they allow pets, i feel so save living here, the outside areas are very well lit. your very close to grocery stores and restraunts.i have lived in several apartment complexes throughout the kansas city area and i find williamsburg square one of the best, and its their staff that makes it that way!
