Worst place to leave and the staff are just the worst and rude

If you want a home Sunwood or gold mark are the worst the way they treat their tenants are so unfair don’t get me started on maintenance which takes like a year to get your sink work and when you talk to the staff they are so rude and treat their tenants like they’re not supposed to.

    The building I am in has got worse since the very first time I lived here which was 2016 if i can remember correctly. The tenants are very friendly but there has been countless times where I was just disgusted with How dirty the building got. And I don't blame the staffing because I know that its hard to find a reliable employer these days and people should respect a full on community and pick up after themselves. Anyways I have had an ok experience with goldmark.

      I live in a building managed by this team of clowns. I havent figured out yet if they are incompetent or dont know what they are are doing. I would advise anyone not to move in into any of their buildings. I regret moving into their buildings and I cant wait for the lease to run out. This is why: 1. The building (Brookside 3) common areas are filthy. I once counted how many days the building went without getting cleaned by watching a piece of food on the stairway landing. it took 9 days before it was cleaned. In addition, the front entrance smells like someone has been relieving themslves there. Its very filthy. 2. Parking is a problem. After calling the management 6 times because of having my parking spot taken and hearing " we cant stay there watching", I realized it is a wasted effort and gave up.I am not going to be here in the summer. 3. I tried using the apartment building washer and dryer and my clothes were as dirty as they went in. In addition to being overpriced and not in good condition, the machines are useless. Please, it maybe cheap to live here, but its not… See More>

        Westwood not a great place

        I've been living in Westwood (managed by Sunwood) for about a year and a half. Overall I have not been impressed by management or the quality of the building. I have had repeated small maintenance problems which were ignored or put off for months. The only time maintenance has shown up quickly was when there was a major pipe leak, elsewise it took weeks. Guest parking is terrible and gets blocked by snow, so visitors have nowhere to park. Many turn to parking in reserved spots, which is a complete pain. The walls are paper thin, and you can hear conversations clearly in the next room. There are kids everywhere screaming and running around the halls (which makes downstairs apartments shake) after 10pm, which seems crazy to me. Words cannot describe how much I hate my neighbors' cat, which seems to be perpetually in heat. There are dogs upstairs and you can hear them *thunder* down the stairs every few hours to do their business on the lawn. And the owners never pick it up so the front lawn is a wasteland. Oh, and the laundry room is overpriced… See More>

          Dont do this to yourself

          My roommate and I moved into These apartments and I would like to also say what he has said. The apartments themselves were not great but average, management was terrible. When we first moved in it was Jan and in the winter. I went to open my garage door and found garbage and old furniture in there. I complained numerous times and two weeks later it was cleaned. However the door was still a mess. The ceiling fan, dishwasher and outlet in the bathroom did not work as said. The curtains and the door to use the balcony did not work either. Cops came to our room complaining about noises, which we did not make; but when we complained about noises and smelling of marijuana in our bathroom nobody did anything at all. The security doors on the front of the apartment were often broken or propped open. Our neighbors had wild parties on a nightly occasion. As well as the parking, snow, you can't park anywhere. You can't plug in your car, They rarely clean the park alley. It was decently priced for a large two bedroom but, for that money you could get a one bedroom that isn't… See More>

            What I Think Of Sunwood Apartments - Please Read

            This apartment, lets see. Went there in January 1st 2011, Left February 12th 2011, with the lease, These apartments are terrible. First of all, Tried to open the garage door outside, was filled with garbage and the door wouldnt even open nicely, It was opened with "brute force." Second, I'd get a noise complaint if I acidentally bumped a table, and all around me all I could hear is music, The walls suck. 3rd of all the ceiling fan, dishwasher, and outlit in the bathroom did not work. Took them about 1 month to come fix the ceiling fan/dishwasher. And the outlit wasnt even fixed. The curtins to go the balcony outside, the things wouldnt even open. There was a stain on the floor. The only thing I liked about this apartment was, the girl that showed me this apartment, she sucked me in it. They use like "sex appeal" or something to drive you in it. Don't come here, stay out. Its not worth the time. Its horrible management and a horrible place to live. Cops came to our room complaining about noises, but when we complained about noises/smelling of marijuana, nobody came to our side.… See More>

              Don't Waste Your Time

              This review is for the Westwood Apartments, managed by Sunwood. During the flood of 2009 we discovered that the patio door leaks, soaking the padding and carpeting in that corner of the unit. Since that time, we have reported water in the unit AT LEAST 5 times and every time their "solution" is to bring in a big air mover to "dry out" the carpet and padding. In April 2010 we learned that (at that time) the office management had 9 work orders for water leaking in through the patio door on the unit. As I write this, it is now closer to a dozen, as it leaks when ever there is a substantial amount of rain. Even when it is not enough rain to leak in, the unit is still filled with the musty smell of mold. I took samples and had them identified. The results came back as black toxic mold. A sample of the indoor air quality also came back positive for black toxic mold. I have asthma and allergies, but management refuses to let us out of our lease even though I am in a high risk group. And from the sound of it, they plan… See More>

                Boo Goldmark

                If I were you, I would stay away from Goldmark. Hard to get service, moderate prices, moderate service, huge pain in the --- to move out. My roommate did some damage, I didn't know about it at all, they sent it off to a debt collection agency and they double collected the money. I was out $500 for 9 months. Not cool.

                  This is also a review for westwood. The worst aspect of these apartments is the paper thin walls. I could hear my neighbors holding conversations, and every footstep the people living above me made. Also dogs are rampant here. They crap all over the lawn and the owner's never pick it up! The dog that lived above me used to run around at all hours of the night, and it would sound like a stampede of elephants. I could never sleep. I called management a couple times, but nothing changed. A couple good things... Maintenance is pretty good, and it was a decent sized apartment for the amount i paid.

                    Not so Okay Neighbors, Decent Management

                    This is actually a review for Westwood, which is managed by Sunwood. We've lived in Westwood for over two years and can't wait to move out. It's very easy to hear your neighbors. For nine months straight every morning we were treated to sounds of our upstairs neighbor throwing up (alcoholic? Cancer victim?). We also could hear cats meowing downstairs. The building has one washer and dryer per floor, and the dryers don't work very well. It usually takes at least two runs through the dryer to get clothes completely dry (unless they are delicates). The apartment itself is very spacious, lots of storage, but the carpet was very stained when we first moved in, it didn't even look like they cleaned when we did our walk through. There was dust on all the window blinds, and the bathroom was still dirty. Didn't seem like there was any deep cleaning done. There isn't a fan in our bathroom either, which is annoying, but we decided to live with. (what kind of bathroom doesn't have a fan?) We have to constantly call maintenance about our dishwasher, which likes to not drain completely (leaving an inch or two of standing water in… See More>

                      Nice place, nice features...

                      I have been residing in a Sunwood Estates building for the past 2 years and just renewed my lease for another year. I have always had great service and feel that my needs have been met. I love the fact that my buiding has nice, big hallways that are well lit. The maintenance requests I have called the office for have always been adressed promptly, usually within a few days. The staff has been polite and friendly when I have seen them. I understand that there can be a few noisy people from time to time, but that is the same with any apartment. When I have dealt with noisy neighbors they quieted down right away. The building is newer, so noise doesn't carry and it appears nice. I live on the 3rd floor and have vaulted ceilings, which I LOVE! Maybe I'm just lucky, but I haven't had any bad experiences that would make me want to leave. I would recommend Sunwood to my friends, and have. My cousin now lives in the Westwood buildings, which is also managed by the Sunwood office and has had a good experience as well.

                        Not so great

                        Well. Noise has a huge issue due to paper thin walls. Some old guy threatened my life the first 2 weeks I was there because he thought my stereo was too loud. I didn't even have a stereo. The internet and cable service at the time was horrible and overpriced. The garage for my apartment was no where near my apartment. The garage was extra long which was nice. People always parked in my assigned parking and parking for visitors was next to none other than off street. The apartment layout was really good for the price range. The laundry room had a washing machine that leaked and flooded the hallway the whole time I was there and never got fixed. It smelled of mold from the constant flooding. The washing machines and dryers were horrible. It took 3 dryer cycles and tons of quarters to dry 3 pairs of jeans on most machines. The washing machines were small for the price. When I gave my 2 months notice, management wouldn't even call or knock half the time when they herded people thru my apartment. One instance ended up with a couple seeing me in my underwear. Beware! Maybe things… See More>

                          Awesome Place to Live

                          I absolutely loved living in the Sunwood Community. The office and maintenance staff were so easy to work with, not to mention my apartment was great! Everytime I had a question or concern they were very quick to respond. It is just a great place and I would recommend living there to everyone!!

                            This is a Goldmark Managed Property. They are slow to respond to maintenance calls (if ever), they enter your premisis with little to no advanced warning with no cause other than "maintenance check" when not requested.<br><br>
