Quiet, nice place to live.

When I moved in my apartment was spotless, with nice newer carpet, very nice wood floor in kitchen. I love the established trees and lawns. It is very quiet here. My maintenance request was handled promptly. I make 3x the rent amount, no issues with my last landlord and was approved promptly.

    Katelyn is the absolute worst property manager of all time. I have never met someone so unprofessional in my life. She’s rude, snotty, and clearly has no idea what she’s talking about. Once the made the property switch, everything went downhill. Save your pennies and go somewhere else. Anywhere else. You will hate your life living there.

      When we first moved in all was great! Then ownership changed. Wassaco LLC is who currently owns it and I have expressed concerns to them and they did not care one bit. There was a stabbing outside my window at 2am on a Friday night. Saturday morning when we tried contacting the office no one answered even though hours said 10-4. No cameras to catch the incident. They had no remorse when I expressed my concerns about the situation. Katelyn and Josh were just completely rude to me and said we’re just here to run a business. I own a business too but I still care about my clients and their concerns. During winter months residents were outside shoveling parking lot themselves. Only good things are size of apartment and maintenance. They will come the next day to fix a problem no matter how big or small.

        me and my wife feel very comfortable here its quiet and we have not had a bit of problems we recently decided to move from our very big 2 bedroom 2 bath apt to a large one bed room because first off we got it because one of our grandkids was supposed to move out here fore college but instead she is going to a university in Nevada when we first talked to shelly she was very helpful on getting what we wanted a lower level apt because my wife has Parkinson's in her legs and cant walk up and down to many stairs and I wanted some space so she advised me on some units and we have been very pleased with her choices and as of her staff they are very kind and curtius and I got to say the maintenance is very good hear I have had to call them a couple of time and they were on it right away shelly , maintenance and the management team keep up the awesome job that you are doing

          Greetings: I'm currently an occupant at Bristol Square Apartments. I wrote a review a couple of days ago which may have been misinterpreted. In short. It would be difficult to find an apartment in this same area comprable to what Beacon Hill offers it's tenants in terms of rent and space. I have great neighbors that kindly speak, and we offer each other assistance when needed. Staff and management also respond in a timely manner. I personally have not had one bad experience since I've lived at Bristol Square the past 18 months or so. Melvin

            I'm an approved occupant on my roommate's current lease. In fact I'm the person that referred her to Bristol Square. I paid the entire rent alone a full year. (Veriiable through my bank statements). As if January 2018 we split all hope 50/50. I was served an eviction notice by a brand new manager, because I attached a letter to the last money order I submitted re: mildew carpet, and workers hired ravished my apartment while removing a fireplace for leak, while I was hospitalized with stage iv cancer. I filed a complaint with Fair Housing. My money order for rent was returned, shortly thereafter I was served an eviction notice, which I showed up for Court to be protests. Would have had to submit my cell phone to the court for the judge to even look at pics on my phone. I lost the hearing. I'm spite of an outstanding rent payment history at my last residence, I've been denied at Bristol Square also. However, decision makers denied me based on information manufactured by my last property manager. Here's the kicker. I was once pre approved by Bristol Square, but would have had to break my lease where I… See More>

              I recently accepted a position in OMA and needed to move to a new place to live. I found a sublet opportunity with one of the tenants here and it was approved by the management company (Richdale Apartments), until the very last week before move in. Mandy Richardson from the company said she couldn't verify my former residence in Des Moines of 2 years (although admitted to me she never tried to contact my landlord). After submitting copies of rent checks to her for verification, she then said because I paid some of my rent with cash over that period, it wasn't considered verifiable. This decision just 3 days before taking over the lease!! She would tho, allow me to take over the sublease of 3 months if I forked over an additional $500! Isn't this called extortion and is illegal?

                I have lived in Bristol square for 2 years. I like my apartment for the most part. It could use some updates but oh well. But the management is awful. And the account manager (ziphora) is the biggest B of all time. Absolutely the RUDEST person I’ve ever encountered. This place STRESSES ME OUT. Last week I got a fine for not cleaning up after my dog, which is complete BS! I ALWAYS clean up after him. She basically treatens to evict me every month. I was forced to get a garage I can’t afford bc I had 2 vehicles and they were constantly tagging them bc they didn’t move often enough (72 hrs) but yet 2 others have sat for MONTHS w/o getting tagged I have a job where I only get paid once a month and unfortunately its in the middle of the month so i get stuck w tons of late fees, i have explained why my rent is late but she literally threatens me & says its unacceptable to pay on this date.... look lady i know, but I cannot change when I get paid!!! And with all of the fees i get I can’t get… See More>

                  Lived here for over three years and it's been pretty bad. Bug problems, flooding, rude maintenance guys, the pool area is dirty, washing machines always broke, car break ins, etc. We were never late with our rent, kept our place very clean, and tried to be as quiet as we could, yet when we ask for them to fix anything, they give us attitude. Finally, we decided to put bad reviews up, and miraculously, they contacted us. After telling them everything we had been dealing with their solution was that we should just move out. The only reason we've stayed so long is bc it's a very convenient area for our jobs. Also, moving sucks. Just today we received a notice to vacate. Not an eviction, bc they have no legal reason to evict us. The lesson here is, if you move in, don't complain, bc they will ask you to leave.

                    Someone posted something about bugs. I live on top floor and have only had a bug problem couple of times and they have always come out to spray right away. Also, you are living in an older building so you are going to have some issues with bugs. Same as living in an older home. They are quick to respond to maintenance issues. Usually within 48 hours the problem is resolved. I say good value for the size of the apartments.

                      DO NOT MOVE HERE. Unless you are looking for a problem go somewhere else. The extra space and lower price rent is not worth the amount of hassles that come with living here. There is never enough parking for the residents even though they assure you when you move in that no one ever has a place to park. I have lived here for about eight months and at least three times a week I have not had a parking space and have had to park on the sides of the buildings. Myself and other residents have been doing this the entire time I have been living here and nothing was ever said my management. This morning I go outside and my car is gone. The office explained to me that they contracted a towing company who now has the permission to come onto the property and tow THE RESIDENTS cars at any time. I was then told that it is my problem that there is no parking here and had to pay $300 to get my car out. I now cannot even come home when I work late hours at my job because there is no where to… See More>

                          I want to thank the staff and the manager(Shelly) for helping me transfer to the apartment I really wanted. Shelly is professional and courteous and goes out of her way for tenants. Maintenance (Ryan) requests are responded to within 24 hrs and the pool is maintained beautifully. I lived in other complexes in Northwest Omaha and Bristol Square is managed the best by far.

                            DO NOT RENT FROM BRISTOL, LIONSHEAD, OR ANY OTHER COMPLEX OWNED BY RICHDALE! We lived here for four months before having to be moved to a new location because our apartment had FLOODED on the base level and had water damage. TWO YEARS LATER, THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO CHARGE US FOR THE DAMAGE. They have changed the reason for this erroneous charge FOUR TIMES and are preventing us from going to a new complex because the charge shows as something we didn't pay on the record, even though it's erroneous to begin with. They are scam artists, the leasing office will NEVER call you back, the apartments are filthy and out-of-date and the laundry rooms are not fit for anything related to cleaning. Worst experience I have ever had with an apartment complex. Please, FOR YOUR SAKE, DON'T RENT FROM THESE FRAUDSTERS!

                              DO NOT RENT AN APARTMENT AT BRISTOL SQUARE! I REPEAT....DO NOT RENT AN APARTMENT AT BRISTOL SQUARE! The staff is RUDE, the property is not kept up, the management company will not return phone calls, maintenance is incompetent and sloppy, nothing gets fixed properly, apartments get flooded and you're expected to take care of the situation yourself, you have to pay to have your dog's DNA tested so if feces are found on the property you will be charged (they never check and you have to step around the feces left in the yard), the online payment system messes up the rental amount due, the laundry room is gross, the hallways are barely cleaned, they move people into the buildings that should require a drug test before admittance and the noise from the neighbors is AWFUL!!!!! Need I say more???

                                We came to Bristol from another sister complex where we had some major issues with that apartment. The employees of Bristol Squares made accommodations for us until our apartment was ready. They cleaned our furniture, moved it and were very quick in getting us taken care of. I know they deal with problems or complaints from tenants daily, and always have a smile on their face and get things done. The complex is clean and quiet. We are very happy here.

                                  They commit many illegal practices and try to take advantage of poor people. You can find blog posts and formal complaints about how they (Richdale) don't fix anything and create contracts that won't stand up in court. Their management company gives people the run around by refusing to return their resident's calls in a timely manner. I really hope people know the risk they are taking in living in a place like this. They will enter your apartment without your permission. They will charge you for your neighbor's heat even if you do not have any. They will accuse you of bringing bedbugs into the apartment when it is their fault. They will attempt to steal or overcharge their residents in order to prevent the inevitable from happening, it turning into Section 8 housing.

                                    I moved in there because of the good reviews on the website but there are some issues. Their building has major draining issues. I lived there for 5 months this year and the pipe in the ceiling leaked once every month. It started with small leak and then went into a major leak which actually broke through the ceiling and made the carpet soaking wet. The manager sent someone to paint over the water stain from the first time without any effort looking into the problem until the ceiling was broken. I was told the rent for the last month will be prorated because my lease is due before the end of the month. I couldn't adjust the amount for the rent on the website so I paid the full month rent and then told the manager about this situation. She said it will be refunded but now it is not the case. She said that she didn't remember this conversation and she must misunderstand. The only thing she could say is sorry but she can't fix the problem.

                                      To start off WORST place to live!!... The first two months that we lived there we had to scolding hot showers because they ignored our request for maintenance, which they did the whole time we lived there. We had to go in on a weekly basis to ask them to do the same things. We went a month without cable because they kept telling us they had cable on never came we had to have cox come in and do it. one of our bathtubs always filled with water while you showered. Our dryer didnt work for the first month. One of the patios had concrete ready to fall through and it took us calling corporate to get that fixed. We asked for a fireplace and when we moved in there was not one. They had numerous people working at the office and all were extremely rude! Especially they property manager now, ------!!! She avoided calling me back on issues , as well as lied to me on things she claimed she had. Two times we had water damage due to weather and the neighbors above us not turning off their bathtub, it took the office a month both… See More>

Our present leasing staff Shelley and Marlene are great. Shelley has been our manager for only a few months but she does her best to stay on top of things. She is always plesant and both she and Marlene are very professional. Shelly walks the extra mile and Marlene is super at follow up calls to see if work was done. We have a great team now and living here is pleasant. All are extremely helpful to me. I appreciate it.
