MY GIRLFRIEND MOVED HERE AND IT REALLY IS NOT A VERY NICE PLACE TO LIVE. BUGS, MOLD, AND OLD APPLIANCES. DONT GET ME WRONG THEY HAVE POTENTIAL, BUT NOT UNTIL THEY DO SOME SERIOUS UPDATING. CANT WAIT FOR HER LEASE TO BE UP.

    An Honest Review For the price, size and location The Oaks at Edgemont is value you just can t resist. Now it s no Hilton, it s not the Hamptons and it s not a gated golf community. Having said that, the rent is low for a 1200 square foot apartment with a washer and drier hookup and it is conveniently located just minutes away from....well just about everything. The rent includes; water, cable and trash pickup. We also have a pool and community laundry room. The apartments are well constructed and reasonably quiet (inside and out). We have several resident police officers on site and have a very active community watch program. We also have a number of community events, activities and gatherings. The office even has a movie library with no cost to residents. The true value really lies with the dedicated staff and the hard working neighbors who work and live in our complex. For the most part we really have some truly blessed people who are willing to jump in and help at the slightest noticed. Case in point: The recent snow storm we experienced really restored my faith in humanity. I watched as neighbors checked… See More>

      Bed Bug Alert!!! Moving to the Oaks at Edgemont has been a living nightmare for me. On move-in day I noticed a revolting ammonia odor coming from the laundry room. I promptly reported this to management. Since the kitchen is adjacent, the odor was obvious there also, as well as the hall closets. It was so bad that I gagged every time I got near the laundry room and , at times, had to run out to throw up. This went on for several weeks. My partner and I became violently ill the night after move-in and we were sick for nearly 2 weeks. Maintenance came up one afternoon during our illness and sniffed around the laundry room. They left abruptly after telling me they needed to check the apartment below. I never heard back from them. I called the manager to inquire and was told, "Maintenance claimed they didn't smell anything." A couple of weeks ago that same manager told me that the odor was coming , from a leak in the apartment below and that the tenants hadn't noticed and that she would 'take care of it.' I probed, "What kind of leak? What am I breathing?… See More>

        I'm a current resident here, only because I thought things would get better. When I first moved here, everything was wonderful. Let me be clear, this is a great value when you factor in free cable and water, but that's no excuse for First Landmark Properties to not fix stuff when it goes broken. It seems as if when First Landmark took over, things have really gone downhill. I have a sloping counter, a stove that don't work, and an AC/Heater that doesn't work when you need it the most, in extreme temperatures. I tried submitting Service Requests online, which I believe is a convenient way for Management to be able to ignore your requests. When you go to the Management and tell them your requests in person, they tell you that 'it's not in the budget to fix it at this time'. I've lived in this apartment since July and they have yet to put a screen in my son's room. Yet they tell me that it has been ordered, 6 weeks ago. I wouldn't recommend this apartment complex to anyone, I would have 3 years ago. This is my last year at this place. 8 years of never… See More>

            I stayed here for a year and I enjoyed the parking in the area as there is more than enough for all residents and company. My apartment was very nice on the inside and I agree the kids in the area can be a little much. However if you don't have kids and live up the street from the office the apartments seem like less traffic around that area. If you don't have kids you won't want to come to the Oaks as it is a very kid friendly neighborhood. Kids aren't out of control there, just hanging around talking as teenager tend to do as always. The office staff was always very professional and the ladies assist whenever I had an issue to be addressed.

              Where do I begin. Well let's start with the uneducated office staff. They are very rude including their so called manager Tracy. The only thing she seem to be managing is a cigerette and a cell phone. I assume she thinks she is better than others but your making minimum wage and drive a tragedy for a car so if that makes you better okay. The maintenance man are a joke they couldn't fix a hole in the ground but I guess that be blamed on only finishing the sixth grade. The landscaping on their website is nothing like it really is. Trash is everywhere, grass never is cut, and there aren't any flowers anywhere. My neighbors are physcotic, I mean some people have mental issues but. They really should do background checks on the idiots they let move in. I would let my dog rent an apartment from here unless her name was Tracy.

                A clarification

                OK, let me try this again. Someone is trying to set me up. They created the "unintimidated" account to look like me. But, I've been here 13 years, not 10. I didn't even know about this site until I was confronted with "unintimidated"'s post by the officer living in the building. I don't know if their beef is with me, the officer, management, or all 3. But, kindly leave me out of it! Oh, as far as living here goes . . . my biggest complaint would be the leaky cold water faucet in my kitchen sink that no one has been able to fix since December 2010. And the breezeway could use a good cleaning.

                  It got bad, now it's WORSE

                  Been here 10 years. It was nice once. Now, it's terrible. TWO cops living on the property. One's a young rookie that lies and sticks up for the gutter-whores, while calling the elderly and handicapped residents names behind their backs. Maintenance is a joke, and the rules don't seem to apply to people who have 6 residents crammed into a 2 bedroom apartment. No wonder the sewers are always backing up! I'll be fleeing for my life, sanity, and safety when my lease expires next year. The Oaks is a bad joke.

                    1 person cant make a difference

                    The oaks are decent at best. The grounds are awful, only one maintenance guy, Steve I think his name is can bother fixing anything. He seems to care and pays attention to what you have to say. As far as any of the other guys you are wasting your breath. The office staff are ok. The apartments are so old and the air conditiong systems are horrible. Cant wait for my lease to end.

I woul say if the other apartmenta were not around they would be good. They just need to get the ohter kids under control and get them for trespassing if theya re caught around because they cause alot of problems.

                        TERRIBLE

                        Ive written several reviews on how bad this place is, and I am back yet again. The Gaston Gazette published an article in this past Sunday's newspaper, titled FEAR ON THE HOMEFRONT. Guess which apartments was featured...none other than The Oaks At Edgemont. According to them The Oaks is the MOST DANGEROUS APARTMENT COMPLEXS in Gastonina! They ranked first in The most calls for service involving potential violent crimes or drug activity in 2009 and also the most Gun shoots reported. Of course it is all true I am sure that I contributed to the number of calls because I have witnessed many instances. My eleven year old son refuses to go outside and play because of all the things and the people who live here. Not that I would even allow him out anyways. I REGRET THE DAY I EVER MOVED HERE! I still currently digging my way out of this hell hole. Unfortunately paying over priced rent and being a single mother its rather difficult. STUCK! and hating every minute. Yeah they have pretty pictures to show you but you best come here on a Saturday evening during the summertime and you will tuck tail and RUN! DO… See More>

                          i saw the reviews before i moved in and was a little worried. i used to live at the bluffs. some of the office people and maintenance men used to work at the bluffs and now they work at the oaks. i moved here because of them and the price. my apartment is big. don't get me wrong, it is old but alot better than where i used to live. so far i have not had any bad problems.

                            even with the law enforcement ACROSS THE STREET

                            I used to love the Oaks, I loved how close it was, the rent, the free cable, but I am also young. After a turn of events, we descided to move, still not the oaks fault. Then THE SAME FREAKING NIGHT we get robbed, they stole everything. Wait, there is more, we've not only been robbed 2 more times, but they have taken the wodden rods that are meant to lock the windows. I feel that if you have dogs however, this is something to keep them away, but still, if you have a family, if you have valuables, don't move here. The police officer doesn't scare the bad away only makes the neive good ones feel safe. I mean, our food is being taken everyday, our drawers being dumped out, and there is nothing that we can do. It's just the area.

                              I would never ever recommend moving your family to the Oaks. I can't wait to undo one of the worst mistakes I have ever made. I should have known what I was walking into the weekend I had planned on moving. When I viewed the apartment it was during the week, I have since learned to do this on the weekend. On the weekends there thug looking teenagers EVERYWHERE they dont even reside there but will never go away. Its always so trashy. Moving day I get there and there is water soaked the hallway carpet which things happen I understand but the whole apartment was absolutely filthy. Management did have cleaning lady to visit again because I refused to move in until they did. The cleaning lady could barely understand what I wanted her to clean because the poor lady didnt speak a lick of english, like the majority of the tenants. Almost every night I awake to gun shots, teenagers playing on the playground till 2am. Of course I mentioned all of this to Management and they posted a sign HA most of these juvenile delinquents cant read or choose to ignore the thing. Last year the pool… See More>

                                Not worth the rent

                                The Oaks is a decent place to live. But it is the most expensive on the block but gives you pretty much the same as all the other apartments. It's not worth the rent. When I first moved in the neighbors were very loud and ------. Then they increased the rent and ran the ------ folks out. The walls are thin like paper. The plumbing is pathetic. Every sink leaks and every drain is slow. It takes fifteen minutes for the water to dissolve after a shower. By the way the apartments are over thirty years old. From the outside you can't tell but the bad plumbing and old fixtures give it away. One entire side of the apartment doesn't have windows (that includes the bathroom). Other than that it's a okay place to live.

                                  I don't think The Oaks is all that bad. Since the new people in the office and the new maintenance guys, it seems to be getting better. My apartment is nice, the rent is cheap...what more can I ask for.

                                    Where do I begin. For starters I think that it's "Shady" for the apartment staff to get on here and write a great review by pretending to be a person who lives at this complex. The staff is awful. They are not consistant with what they say, and don't follow through with what they say. The so-called maintenance is an absolute joke! When I asked for things to be fixed (that needed fixing) they would simply tell me that it didn't need to be fixed and then give you a guilt trip for even asking( Or they will tell you to fix it yourself). The maintenance will show up weeks after something was promised to be fixed and then demand you let them in your apartment unexpected. The staff sends out dirty letters about things that aren't even important instead of more important issues like keeping the noise down. The police officer does make 1 quick drive by and then leaves. Important to note that in 2006 this apartment had the most police calls of any complex in Gastonia (check out Gastonias webpage for details police reports of all complexes). Neighbors just love to get out in the streets at… See More>

It's pretty much the 'hood of Gastonia - lots of thugs doing deals on street corners, wandering the streets at night, etc. I see at least one cop either stopping someone or at an apartment in the area every night.<br><br>Not a good place for kids, to be certain. And if you're an adult, be strapped if you intend to go for a walk after dark.<br><br>The "maintenance" is insanely shoddy. I've called on them repeatedly and the problems still aren't fixed (I won't go into details). There are better apartments in the area, to be sure. As soon as my lease is up, I will certainly be relocating to one of them.

The staff is very friendly and the property is always clean and pleasant. Maintenance is absolutely great, they take care of problems within 24hrs if not sooner than that. The community is very diverse, the kids are very respectful, and everyone seems to be friendly. The Oaks is a very nice place to live.
