Resident 2011 - 2017


I lived here for about 6 years - as a single mom on a lower than average salary I very much appreciated all the time and attention that I received from the office and maint crews. They always did their best to keep the property looking great and make sure the residents were happy. I moved in when Dominium managed it and it was a total nightmare - in 2013 Dietz took over and the ladies in the office are great! Nothing like the previous management - 100% recommend living here.

    Rented from Elwood from maybe 3 months? They gave me a handy cap apartment(1 person) most of literally all applicants don't work. My stove doesn't work.fan, ect. I've contacted the maintained about my problems and literally no help. Even my stove makes a whining sound, looking into the problem and see that my stove could explode with leaching gas. I'm not sure if they even received my emails, but still be caution onto renting to these people/company, be warrey of the grounds keepers.. Had kids throw Christmas orinmetns into trash bins, and had to pick glass out of my shoes, when throwing away my dogs feces.

      I've rented from Elmwood for three years now. As a busy single working mom putting two sons through college, living somewhere with a helpful happy knowledgeable staff is very important. Most important of all is having hassle and worry free maintenance when issues have arose in the past. The maintenance men are always on time, the staff works with my busy schedule, and are more than happy to resolve the problem properly and in a timely manner. I could not be happier and I enjoy living here.. WT

        I have lived at Elmwood Villas for over 6 years. When I moved here in 2007 it was managed by Dominion. Mismanaged would be a better term. The place was falling apart and Dominion wasn't putting any money into keeping the place up. Maintenance was a joke. The asphalt was horrible and was only patched up every spring but the massive potholes returned within a couple of months. The complex managers changed so often that I quit trying to remember their names and a few of the residents weren't the best of Marysville society giving Elmwood Villas a bad reputation. But that was then. Since that time Dominion sold the complex to Dietz Property Management. The new owners have been pouring money into the complex since they took over. They didn't just repatch/repave the asphalt, they had it completely replaced. The maintenance staff is knowledgeable and courteous and most importantly responsive. Dietz really had their work cut out for them when they took this complex over. I don't know how long Dominion owned Elmwood Villas but my appliances had been here since this place was built almost 20 years ago. Dietz has replaced them all with brand new units. They've… See More>

          Elmwood Villas is now professionally managed by Dietz Property group, the same company that owns Watkins Glenn. My wife and I knew this piece of information which was very helpful in making our decision to try the Villas. We don't regret our decision at all. Office staff and maintenance are friendly and helpful. We plan on renewing our lease this summer. I give it 5 stars.

            Terrible place. Would not recommend to anyone. Management is never there so getting anything fixed never happens, and even getting a hold of them is a hassle. Tried to turn in our keys because our lease was up and there was a sign on the door saying they had moved. They then charged us for breaking lease and not returning keys and leaving the apartment a mess when it was not bad at all. Worst first apartment.

              I have lived in this community for almost 2yrs. I do plan to renew my lease again very soon. I do realize there's lots of negative reviews on this community but I can say that those reviews are based on the experiences people had with the previous management. This property recently changed hands & I honestly can't say enough good things since the sell of this property! I have seen the maintenence team go above & beyond to solve issues for myself as well as take care of issues in vacant apartments so that new residents will not have to deal with the issues. The office staff is also top notch! I have seen more positive changes in our community, in the last 3months since the new team has taken over, than in the entire time I lived here! If you are looking for a great family oriented community than this may be your place! I highly recommend Elmwood Villas Apartments to anyone!!

                Tried to get an apartment here and the office staff hardly responded. DO NOT waste time trying to get an apartment at Elmwood! The staff is not helpful and trying to get an apartment there was impossible due to the staff! Found a better apartment and more friendly and helpful staff at another complex. If they can't return a call or pick up a phone for someone trying to get an apartment, I can only imagine how they treat the tenants who pay $700 for crappy service!

                  Where do I start? A different manager every other month. Maintenance doesn't want to do their job. I've had a hole in my roof for 3 years that leaks every time it rains. Won't fix it. No hot water half the time, won't fix that either. I can't count how many times I've gone without heat since I've been here because the furnace is ancient. The a/c doesn't work, air blows in through the windows and it's freezing in the winter. Heating and electric bills are insanely high. Neighbors are all on drugs and just plain rude. Can't use the oven unless you open a window because the smoke alarm goes off. My stove top has black and brown stains with peeling paint but do you think they will replace it? You want to throw your money away- move here!!!!I guarantee you'll hate it. Someone else here had a leak coming from the water heater and no one fixed it- their entire bathroom ceiling caved in. I've rented many places and this is a joke. Leaving next month, can't wait to get out!

                      Absolute Nightmare

                      I currently reside in Elmwood Villas. I also lived here 3 years ago and I have to say that Elmwood is nothing like it was 3 years ago. My mother and myself spent an hour yesterday picking up trashbags full of trash, soda cans and trash that was scattered all over the ground by the dumpsters. <br><br>They do not have very good pest control - because I have ants so bad that a small crumb is covered within 15 mins.<br><br>Rent is rising, the upkeep is going down.<br><br>The parking can be a problem because the residents are so rude out here. My neighbors allow their visitors to park in our ONE parking spot while we are not home. We've come home to find the entire parking spots filled up because of them, and they will not move down on spot so we can have our 2 spots. It's a pain that I'd rather not deal with.<br><br>I do not recommend anyone to live out here.
