    --- came flipped it and sold. New owner is horrible does not listen to tenants complaints. Raises the rent every year. If you like living in an apartment where you have neighbors outside screaming and yelling and cursing and nothing is done about it move here . If you like doors slamming early in the morning or late at night because they do not fix them properly move here. If you like the landscapers coming at 6 o'clock in the evening to mow the lawn so you can't even hear yourself when you're having dinner move here . All of these issues have been told to the new owner and he has done nothing . The landscapers live on the premises and not only do they come late and disturb everyone when they get home from work but they take a parking spaces with all of their trucks and trailers . Super on site always responds by saying he can do nothing that we need to call the owner . Horrible place to live do not move here .

      Ok.. Been her for 5 hours years, when I first got here is was absolutely horrible is every way... Since --- took over there is definitely more respect to the tennents.. I agree with that.. But the super is never here, leaks in every pipes.. Broken windows and holes in the walls (which makes big problem horrendous) .. The laundry room is so dirty it has not been cleaned since I got here ... My clothes get dirtier when I wash them is that laundry room... Parking lot is covered in black ice in the winter ( I've slipped so many times) dog poop EVERYWHERE!!!! I watch tennents let their dogs go and just walk away....

        If you want peace and quiet do not move here. Noisy neighbors and never any parking. If you come home late from work good luck as a tenant getting a spot. Commercial vehicles and non tenants will be in your spots. Currently a tenant with a tow truck wakes us every night at 2am and 3am going in and out and he comes homes at all times and leaves his truck running for a half hour outside. Imagine listening to a loud tow truck every night while you try to relax and have dinner or watch tv. No one has done anything about it and several people have complained. Noise and parking are a huge problem here.

          I have been here since last year and I must say the property is very clean now the new owner Liz has kept this place immaculate and the superintendent Levan keeps the place clean and safe from snow and ice. The laundry room is kept spotless at all times and I always have access which I also love. I have great neighbors who are quiet and very nice. My apartment was brand new when I moved in everything from the windows to the entire bathroom and kitchen. I have no bugs or pests in my apartment which makes me very happy. I would recommend this place to anyone at this time as it is a great place to live now with new owner. Happy tenant :]

            Don't listen to Zillow on this one. Let me start with a positive the super Levan is a godsend but he can only work from 8a-4p. This place has put me through hell from when I moved in Nov. 2013) until now. I moved 3 months ago & they WILL NOT GIVE me my $1625 SECURITY DEPOSIT! They never answer their phones, they don't publicize a real address/phone #. I even have my former broker assisting me, and she reports in dismay that the listing agent is no longer affiliated with NEW AIM REALTY but can't state why. I moved in after the hurricane, it took me so long to find a place I previously (and my 2 dogs) lived across the street from the beach in Keansburg. Then, I was for the most part staying in my friends car borrowing my friends phone (seeing as to how Mine were lost & fema gave renters approx. 2G's for damage) to get to work. they didn't care they told me I had to pay what was on my credit (Comcast cable & Gym membership from like 5 yrs ago in another state) since I had too many school loan deferments on there. So… See More>

                You DO NOT want to move here!!! Dog crap everywhere, drug use and drug dealing in back paring lot. LOUD neighbors that CURSE all day & night!!! All of these things have been reported to management with NAMES of the tenants doing them and they do NOTHING!!!! Management is a whole other story, Woman in charge Theresa is a RUDE NASTY UNPROFESSIONAL Woman. They care nothing about the tenants RIGHTS to a PEACEFUL DWELLING. We moved in a year ago and are looking to get OUT ASAP! They let people with ONE BR apts take Multiple parking spots while people with TWO BR's come home to NO SPOTS because they allow BUSES and COMMERCIAL Vehicles to take up multiple spots. This place is a joke!!!! IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN BY NO MEANS MOVE IN, HORRIBLE AND UNSAFE!!! Fire Department here ALL THE TIME, very UNSAFE and management and OWNER does NOT Care!!!! Lawsuit waiting to happen!!!!

                  Horrible owners do not care about tenets in the least. We have our little kids stepping in dog crap constantly even after we told them who isn't cleaning up after their pets, they did nothing. Have people doing and selling drugs on premises they don't care as long as they get their rent. Loud obnoxious neighbors who everyone has complained about and they do nothing. Been here a year and we are leaving as soon as possible . Do not move here if you have kids or want a peaceful environment or safe place to live, it's not here.

                          useless and a scam

                          when i moved in in october, the middle because they couldn't get a C of O, my stove and fridge didn't work. i couldn't have thanksgiving because they didn't fix the stove until late january. my fridge still is crap and it has almost been a year. there is a dumpster piled high because they don't pay the bill. they also told me i'd get the first month free, esp since i didnt move in until the middle. well they decided to send a letter saying the c of o was good since september and i moved in october first and that no one spoke to us about the first month free. the first month free was the promo that introduced us and many others around here that they are jerking around. plus, don't expect to get your security back with out a fight. oh and trying to call the main office...good luck getting anyone to answer or call back

                            This place is terrible, I definatly would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. The place is falling apart, the heat barely works (so in cold weather be prepared to buy a space heater). The landscaping this horrible, the bushes have not been trimmed. Ontop of the that, the side walk needs to be re done and the parking lot needs to be paved. Today i woke up and there was no water for my shower. very nice huh? Matawan Village is like living in a village in the 1800's.

                              THUGS, managing this place

                              I have been living here for the past few years and will be moving out very soon. Reasons:<br>1. There are many apartments empty and no-onw would rent; obviously because of the condition<br>2. The rental agreement totally negates the NJ Renters laws. Read both if you don't believe.<br>3. People managing the place and thugs; its like gang robery

                                opinions are crazy

                                I'm reading these rating and I can't believe I'm reading these things.I never had a problem and lived in the complex for 4 years. I moved only because of my job.<br>Don and Fran have never been like they say in the other comments. I noticed that the group of women in one section are always the ones who have the MOST to say BUT they are still renting. If tenants were that unhappy they would all move. I did not have the time to be a busy-body and got along fine.

                                  Absolutely pathetic!<br><br>All management cares about is money, and of-course the way they attract more people is by keeping the lawn mowed; thats where all the money goes to.<br><br>As for the appartments, the only thing holding together the appartments is the paint. And even the paint job doen is not good. The carpets are old and if ask to change anything, management wants to raise the rent for doing that.<br><br>After so many years of living here, i think its worth spending a bit more and living in a decent place.<br><br>Stay Away from this place unless its a life and death situation, in which case read the lease agreement, you will never rent after reading that!

                                    The apartment was nice, it´s a 40 year old complex with some things changed so for the price of rent and the size of the rooms it was worth the rent. Apartments were kept up and some of the neighbors were busy bodies but I mind my own and don´t have time to sit around and gossip and make up stories. I felt safe there and the people who worked there were always helpful.

                                      Maintenance & management are TERRIBLE-they don´t care who they rent to.

                                      Whenever I have had any problems, nothing is ever done about it. Nobody wants to hear anything, nobody wants to do anything. If I could I would get out of here as fast as possible.
