My entire experience from the beginning was misleading and dishonest. I was quoted 3 different deposit prices. I was also told that I did not qualify for the apartment after submitting financial aid information for summer 2020 and fall/spring 2020-2021. Once I expressed my lack of… See More

We are so sorry to hear that this happened to your daughter. Unfortunately, this species of spider are known to find a warmer home indoors during the fall, so it can be difficult to employ a pest control routine that will prevent them from ever coming inside. And I can confirm this is the only such report that we have had of this species. However, we wish to do all we can to prevent this sort of thing from happening again. So we will be more than happy to contact our professional pest control team and see if they can come and ensure there are no other issues. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

We would like to sincerely thank you for your feedback. It is important for us to know what we can do to improve. And we are happy to hear that our maintenance staff has impressed you. While buildings and equipment do show signs of folks living there over the years, we are happy to hear that it seems we have the right people in place to fix any issues that do come up for you. I would love to reach out to you in person about any concerns that you did not mention here, but it seems you did not provide any information about which unit you may live in. So I would like to invite you to reach out to me personally so that I may clear up any other concerns that you still have. Thank you again for your valuable time!

We are very sorry to hear that your experience was anything less than excellent here at Catamount Peak. We did fill up quite quickly for the 2019-2020 leasing season this year! So we are sorry that yourself and others who wished to live here were unable to secure a space here before we filled up completely. Rest assured that if any spaces do open up, we will be in touch with yourself and any others on the waitlist in hopes of securing the space you desired. We sincerely appreciate your feedback so that we can continue to improve in the future.

Thank you for expressing your concerns regarding the application process here at Catamount Peak. We do our best to ensure that applicants understand the requirements and cost associated with applying by having every applicant sign off on the Student With Guarantor Application Disclaimer. This document specifically states what the requirement is for income, which to be clear, is indeed 4 times the monthly rent. Additionally, we also provide applicants with another document called Selection Criteria. This document includes a paragraph specifically stating that all fees are non-refundable, even if an application is not approved after screenings. We sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding regarding the application fees and requirements beyond what is communicated in the signed application paperwork. We would love the opportunity to speak to you in greater detail about your specific situation to see what we can do to get your application approved. Please reach out to us at (828) 293-9939 so we can assist you with that process."

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience at Catamount Peak. We are sorry that your experience at Catamount Peak was not as pleasant as we always hope. With regards to any damage charges after your move-out, the staff diligently refers to move-in inspection forms when assessing those charges to ensure that our residents aren't being charge unfairly for damage that wasn't caused by them. If you have any further questions about these charges, you can contact the Leasing Office directly. In late-2013, we were made aware, at a corporate-level, that the level of service at Catamount Peak was not up to the standard we expect as a company, and we have taken a number of steps since that time to better address the concerns and needs of all of our residents at Catamount Peak. This has included hiring new people for nearly our entire office staff, replacing the full maintenance staff, and adding an additional full-time maintenance position at the property. In addition to this, we have eliminate the private security service that was at the property and have forged a stronger partnership with local law enforcement, and continue to utilize our 24-hour surveillance cameras, to more effectively address the needs of our residents. We also have a shuttle stop in front of our leasing office for any residents who prefer not to drive or walk to campus. The new manager, and her staff, are very focused on providing a great experience at Catamount Peak for every resident, and we have gotten a lot of great feedback regarding the improvement in the level of service offered at the property. We would welcome the opportunity to show you that improvement first-hand if you ever make the decision to return to our community as a resident!

I'm sorry to hear that there were some issues with your apartment being ready when you moved-in in August. The community did experience these issues with several of the early move-ins due to lack of documentation from some previous staff. Over the past two months, we have done a number of things to improve the resident experience at Catamount Peak. These include hiring a new property manager and the upcoming hire of a new assistant manager; hiring a new maintenance staff, including adding another full-time maintenance position; and bringing in a great deal of additional help from other properties and our corporate office to offer additional support and training to the property during this time of transition. Though the results will not be seen overnight, we certainly anticipate that over the next several weeks and months there will be a noticeable improvement over the level of service that you were offered during your move-in and subleasing of your unit. If you would like to provide more information (your name, who you spoke with in the office), so that we can investigate the refund of your Early Move-In Fee, please send us an email at [email protected], and include a link to this post. With that information in-hand, we can certainly investigate the refund and get an non-refunded amount sent to you as soon as possible.
