Crystal Tree Apartments
Resident · 2016
While I only stayed here for one year, it exceeded my expectations at every turn. After getting a divorce I found myself starting my life over completely and had no idea what to expect. I had gone from living in and owning a large 4 bedroom home to now looking to rent. I was terrified (many years ago I had a horrendous experience renting)...until I came to view the apartment. I found the area to be beautiful and wooded. It is close to downtown Fayetteville and lots of shops and restaurants. I was used to a more rural setting so I found Crystal Tree ideal in that respect. Then, I met the people. The landlords are exceptionally kind and knowledgeable. From the first interview they made their expectations clear and they were fantastic. They have their tenants best interests at heart which is incredibly rare these days. I had the pleasure of renting the apartment directly above the rental office, and sharing the building with 4 other wonderful apartments. It was quiet, and clean and HUGE! The living room with the huge double sliding glass windows and the deck were everything I could have hoped for. I spent many happy nights sitting quietly outside on the deck enjoying the air. That's the thing about Crystal Tree: it is exceptionally quiet. The tenants from all of the buildings are respectful of one another. In addition to the deck, there is a ton of storage space. I had more closets than I needed and they were quite huge! The bathroom off of the main bedroom was a nice treat as well. Not many apartments have 1.5 baths. The entire apartment was carpeted, but it was in very good shape. The kitchen was quite large and even had enough room for a small table and chairs! The complex itself is well maintained. I never had a problem with anything the entire time I was there. Even in the winter when I had to leave for work at 5am they were working to clear snow from the road and the sidewalks. I loved that apartment for so many reasons. It was a place that helped me heal after a hard divorce and it was a place that allowed me to grow. It had privacy and quiet and fantastic neighbors. There were times I would come home after a hard day at work to find treats from one of my neighbors hanging from my door. That kind of kindness is rare. I would be happily living there still, but life gives us opportunities sometimes, and we need to take them. I did and so I had to leave, but I left with only happy memories. Even when I was gone the landlords took time to call me to see how I was. They truly cared about me as person. I was not merely a rent check to them. The complex is family owned and operated and while I was there I kind of felt a little bit like I was part of the Crystal Tree family. The rent I paid was affordable as it was, but I would pay twice that for that kind of care and that kind of environment. Whomever finds themselves renting from Crystal Tree are lucky indeed because honestly, it doesn't get much better.
