Great staff and maintenance. Very attentive & prompt. The only concern is that during the weekend & holidays, hiring an outside collection service would do well in keeping the community looking good.

    Nice neighborhood. Kind of expensive and rent goes up every year but I cant complain much. pretty safe out here. never had any problems with breaking in or stealing. I think they could remodel the homes and bring them up to par

          My is okay. There are a few items that need to be checked out. It's something that requires the Maintenace to come and fix or check out. Also, some of the tenants at my building don't follow what they signed on their lease agreement.

                    We sorry to hear that Dobbins HIll is not holding up to your standards. Unfortunately, when tenants move out leaving items behind and illegal dumping of non-tenants, we must make arrangements for the items to be taken away and are placed at the dumpster area until the scheduled items are removed. Squirrels are a nuisance around the dumpster areas and as much as service attends to the dumpster area several times a day to ensure it stays as clean as possible, we cannot control the squirrels. We hope we will improve on this score in the future.

                    The neighbors here are friendly. There are a lot of children outside without parental supervision. The cabinets are outdated inside the apartments. Maintenance is fast and effective. Very cheap paint, easy to remove, and it sticks to the floor.

                      Sometimes it can be very quiet but there's a lot of drama some times and it gets to loud people can be so inconsiderate at late hours of the night. The breezeways are always nasty because of the kids.

                          Very good experience except some security issues from time to time. Also the smell of drugs in my building that stopes me from using my balcony at all the time. Also some kids play and sit in the steps.

                            I've lived here for 12 years with minimal issues. Issues were handled professionally and promptly. The current management also is able to anticipate needs and act accordingly, such as the need for an upgraded playground which the children and their parents love.

                                          So far so good . It is a nice community but some of the residents throw trash on the ground. The one maintenance person does a good job of cleaning it up but the residents keep throwing trash on the ground.

                                            I like the community. The location is great and it's really quiet. I don't like not having extra storage. Most of the apartments here have them. They can also use some updating and new carpet. The numbers on the buildings could be more noticeable.
