Love the Reserve

The Reserve doesn´t get enough credit for the good it does. What people don´t understand is that they live in an apartment community not at the Adam´s Marks Hotel. The staff is here to help us but not to live our lives for us. I have had some maintenance issues come up but that is expected anywhere you go. The office staff was very quick to get my problems to maintenance and they were also quick to fix everything. <br> Most of the people who leave negative reviews are written by immature minds who are just trying to cause damage. They can´t even say who they are because of fear someone might laugh at them. <br> I hate to give these people the bad news but anywhere you go you are going to find problems. We live in a world with theives and all tye of criminals. Don´t blame the community for other peoples actions. I´ve lived here for a year and I have never had any problems with noise or break ins. Personally I think that some of the residents are doing it and then trying to make it look like they… See More>

    needs some work

    I currently live at the Reserve. Im a guy. If you are a girl and are attractive and young i probably wouldn´t recommend this place unless you really can take care of yourself. You know how guys are. But im paying 450 for 900 sq ft with vaulted ceilings. I might have gotten lucky but my place rocks. The water heater wasn´t on when i moved in. I called the front desk and they said they would take care of it. Two days later i called after hours and paged the maintence guy who came out and hooked it up. No biggie. The heater wasn´t putting out heat. This time i skipped the desk and paged the tech straight away. The next day i had heat. Im currently trying to get a key that works on my mail box. Ive been there a month with out getting mail :) The only real complaint i have are the grounds. Up keep of the outside. Its almsot winter so im not to worried about the dirty pool. But most of the safety lights don´t work. And the plants aren´t cared for at all. I haven´t had any crime or vandalism yet. <br> <br>copacetickc@yahoo.com <br> <br>

      Re: Love the Reserve

      This is in response to what some supporters of The Reserve have said. The sentences in quotation marks are excerpts from others´ comments. <br> <br>"The office staff was very quick to get my problems to maintenance and they were also quick to fix everything." <br>This may have been the case with you (you´re lucky), but during my time at the Reserve, we practically had to beg maintenance to repair what was broken. <br> <br>"Most of the people who leave negative reviews are written by immature minds who are just trying to cause damage." and, "Personally I think that some of the residents are doing it and then trying to make it look like they are victims." <br>Perhaps you should read Oklahoma´s Restatement (Second) of Torts definition of false light before you make any more comments like this. <br> <br>"They can´t even say who they are because of fear someone might laugh at them." <br>I noticed that the Reserve supporters did not leave their names either. <br> <br>"I hate to give these people the bad news but anywhere you go you are going to find problems." <br>We have since moved to Edmond, and we live in a very safe, clean, quiet apartment community. <br> <br>"If you are looking for a new home don´t turn… See More>

        Like a leaky faucet.....drip....drip....drip

        I lived at the Reserve for 2 years. It was my first Apt., I had just turned 18. At first, it was heaven.....even though I was paying almost $400 for a one bedroom apt. <br>However, a few months after I´d moved there we had a huge storm. Not only did water come flooding in my back sliding glass door, but it also seaped into my walk in closet, ruining my prom dress and my collection of movie posters, among other things. I called maintence and they said they´d be over first thing in the morning. The next AFTERNOON they finally shoed up. Did they try to find the leak in my closet? No. What they did do was plug in a fan and point it at my soaking wet carpet. Of course, everyone who lives in Tulsa knows that once it starts raining in Tulsa it doesnt stop for weeks! So, I had moldy carpet because my closet was still leaking. Some friends of mine who worked in construction brought over some sandbags and lined them up around my patio, which at least kept the water from leaking into my living room...but my closet...well, I just took everything out of it… See More>

          Happy to leave

          The repairs did seem to be helping, and in another year or so I bet it will be much nicer, but right now the crime near the bottom of the hill is scary. I feared leaving my apartment alone during the day, and my car alone during the night. For the most part, nice neighbors, the staff is trying, but last summer was not the right time to be there.

            ~~In the ------~~

            Don´t even consider moving to the Reserve. Every bad review on this site is absolutely true. Management only cares about your $$$. I can´t count how many employees have come and gone since I´ve live in this ------. Don´t buy into that 2 million dollar renovation crap that "Michele" is trying to feed you. She´s probably sitting high and mighty out of state counting all the cash she´s making off tenants she could care less about. Everyone I now has major roof leaks every time it rains. There is dog crap all over the grounds. The swimming pools they advertise were open approx. 2 weeks all summer. This place Sucks!

                I have lived at this hell hole for 3 months and it has been the worst 3 months I have been through! The staff is something else, they are very ignorant, I have never met such stupid people in my life they have no clue what is going on, I hate telling people where I live, it is humiliating! The grounds are very trashy, and disgusting there is dog crap everywhere so watch your step if you are considering moving in here! There are ALWAYS parties going on here and nothing ever gets done about it, in fact the staff actually partakes in the parties! Imagine that! Needless to say I am moving in 3 months and I think I will have a party and not invite the staff!!! Be smart DO NOT LIVE HERE!!!!

                  I am Michele Zemaitis, the owner´s representative for The Reserve at Shadow Mountain. I was recently made aware of this web site and was dissapointed when reading the comments.

My email is michele@virtuinvestments.com and I look forward to your emails. Please include your name, unit number, issue to be resolved and a contact telephone number. <br><br> <br><br>Additionally, in order to help recify some of the past maintence issues we are in process of a 2 million dollar renovation project including roof replacement, remodeling several of the laundry rooms, pool renovation, exterior paint....stucco repairs....siding repalcement, tie wall replacement and interior unit upgrades. I am aware that renovation projects can sometimes be inconvenient but I look forward to a better quality community when complete. <br><br> I will not be rating the community in the section below as I look to our residents to do that. <br><br>

                    NOT RECOMMENDED! COMPLETE CHAOS!

                    I lived at the Reserve for a year and a half. Maintenance was awful - I generally had to call three or four times before getting any service. There was usually no hot water in the laundry rooms, the dryers didn´t dry, and I eventually started taking my clothes up the street to a laundromat. The waterfall looks nice in the pictures, but try walking past it when they have not cleaned it in three months, and there´s algae growing six inches deep on it. <br> <br>They routinely messed up my account and charged me for charges above my rent. When I moved out, they claimed I had failed to turn in my keys, even though I had done so, and they deducted $50 from my deposit as a result. Nearly four months later, they have told me repeatedly that the situation has been resolved, and a check for the $50 is on the way, but I still have not received the $50. I am considering taking them to small claims court for the remaining balance that they owe me. <br> <br>Sure, the rent is low, but that´s because they practically have to pay… See More>

                      I first would like to say Reserve apts at one time werent as bad as today, I can say back 4yrs ago when i moved in that the place was ok. <br> But lemme sum up all this in a matter of a few sentences that will give a description of this hell hole. <br>No1. The apts were sold countless times to other corp,4 times while I lived there in the 3 yrs."Reason being the place is a sinking boat no one wanted to get taken down w/it" <br>No2.$$$$$ The cost to fix and maintain the complex has been neglected and is to far in the grave to be helped."The grounds of the corp executive owned apts are kept nice...as for the renters the pools are pounds the washer&dryer fac are in very poor almost dangerous to be in,glass, flooded washers holes in walls broken windows,pet control NONE watch your step anywhere, sidewalks are fine BUT hand rails broken railroad tie walls falling onto sidewalks. <br>No.3 PARK AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!! <br>No.4 BUY EAR PLUGS NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE IN COMPLEX THERE ARE LESS THEN CIVILIZED PEOPLE HERE.

                        Calling this place a hell hole is too nice.

                        I have lived in two different apartments here. First of all, I would like to say that calling this place a hell hole is too nice. 3 out of 6 laundromats don´t work or have burnt down, stones are falling from the buildings, metal stairs and railing are rusted and shoddy with jagged edges just waiting to cut your children and put them in the hospital with lockjaw. Broken glass and beer bottles are everywhere. Dog ----, everywhere. Spent ammunition, everywhere. The remains of spent fireworks, everywhere. This place was not all that bad a few years ago, but now its a ------- warzone/crack hotel. Like the post from Xlockeed said, only move here if you are running from the police...you´ll probably find some help here if that is your problem. If you live at the bottom of the hill, expect to carry your laundry up a hill for a mile, only to be disappointed when ALL FOUR washer and dryers are being used by one of the many tenants from the 600 apartments that are part of this complex. Oh yeah, expect the office to lose your… See More>

Very hard to keep cool/hot, drafty, and more... Would advise to look else where before moving in. Has a problem with D.S.S.

NOT A MONTH LATER A LEAK IN MY CEILING ABOVE THE BATHROOM AND IN THE BATHROOM OCCURRED AS WELL AS A LEAK UNDERNEATH MY UPSTAIRS BATHROOM SINK. THEN MY TOILET DOWNSTAIRS DECIDED NOT TO WORK FOR ABOUT 2 MONTHS. LATER A LEAK IN MY DOWN STAIRS KITCHEN CEILING FINALLY BROUGHT THE MAINTENANCE OUT. THEY DID A POOR JOB ON MY TOILET AND HAVE PROMISED TO FIX THE ROOM IN MAY OF THIS YEAR. I DON´T KNOW IF THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN OR NOT, BUT I FEAR I WILL FALL IN THE BATHROOM A 3RD TIME BEFORE ANYTHING IS ACCOMPLISHED. NEXT MY NEIGHBORS ARE AWFUL NOISY PEOPLE. MY FIANCE AND I HAVE HEARD THE BOYFRIEND THREATEN THE GIRLFRIEND WITH A KNIFE AND THEY POUND AND SCREAM THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.

                              EXCELLENT--IGNORE PAST REVIEWS

                              I´m appalled at the reviews given to the Reserve. It is a BEAUTIFUL complex. The outside of a couple buildings (out of MANY) could use a little work (paint mostly, and some new sidewalks) but for the most part, beautiful. The staff is PERFECT--how could anyone say otherwise? $300 for a perfect efficiency, $355 for an enormous one bedroom...it´s sad you people had poor experiences, but from the grammar in your reviews, you fit right in with drop outs. I love the reserve!

                                I moved into this complex because I was coming back to Tulsa after living in New York City and I had about 48 hours to find a place to live. The Reserve seemed nice at first, and a pretty good deal all things considered. Three words - NO FREAKIN´ WAY. I lived in Spanish Harlem while I was in New York, and I would take the real ´hood over this decrepit hell any day. <br> <br>My wife and I got a 1 bedroom townhouse, with a huge window overlooking the Tulsa skyline. It had a spiral staircase, which seemed like a great idea at the time. It´s not. It´s impossible to move furniture up and down that staircase. But that is byfar the least of the problems with this complex. <br> <br>These units were designed before air conditioning, so the AC unit was housed in the kitchen ceiling. It began leaking soon after we moved in because there was so much mold and dust built-up in the drain that it couldn´t properly get rid of condensation. So it spilled filthy water all over our food and dishes. They fixed this not be replacing the… See More>

The floorplans are great, but no one takes care of them at all. Every psycho-nutball pervert in Tulsa lives here. Domestic violence abounds! People having sex in the laundry rooms and alcohol bottles everywhere. I have never seen this much dog crap anywhere in my life. The worst is the office staff. These idiots would have to study to take a BLOOD test. Stupid, mean, nasty, rude AND inefficient. Run, run, run away from this pit. You will be miserable here, and then when you escape, they will charge you for damages you never did and ruin your credit, just because they can!

                                      i can confirm all of the other opinions i have read on this page. We moved in on one of their move in specials and then got charged extra to live downstairs...the apartments are built on a hill so everyone climbs stairs ...we just pay extra to climb a few less and get to hear the constant stommping from our upstairs neighbors. My car has been vandalized on the premises, tag stolen, feral cats pee in it, and towed off by the apartment manager without so much as a call to inquire about the condition, our hot water also went out and it took a week and a half to fix it(after being told they had to order plumbing parts....from japan or what?), they never replaced the moldy carpet and pad and baseboards. If you live here be sure that your check clears because after they snail mail your check to another state and it gets snailed back to them before they tell you about it the daily late fees can be quite expensive. in closing, if you want cheap rent, crappy maintenance, and stonewalling from the managers, this is for you, otherwise consider living in the ------, cause its… See More>

                                        When I moved here I was shocked at the Cheap price and non-cookie cutter floor plans. I had a lovely one bed room town home. With a spiral stair case and onw wall for two floors was a giant window. It was truly a dream home for the price of $450. Anyway that is what I thought. During spring time it began it´s nomale rainy spring time showers. Two months into my spring season about 4 yellow bloches start to appear on my ceiling. When reported to the staff I was assured they would be write on that. A month passes and nothing is done. When Coming home one day I open my day to my nightmare my lovely town home and was leaking in 5 spots now and had over night became a swamp. My computer, and lots of my clothing was in ruins. This place is Hell and the Staff refused to allow me out of my lease I now have an eviction but it´s by far better then living here!

                                              IGNORANT STAFF/ APTS FALLING APART

                                              I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO ANGRY WITH ANYONE BEFORE,I SIGNED A 6 MONTH LEASE AND WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT MY SPACIOUS APT. I COULDN´T BELIEVE THE DEAL I "THOUGHT" I GOT. PRETTY SOON I WAS FACED WITH LEAKY CEILINGS WHICH TOOK A MONTH TO GET SERVICE ON. THEN MY BATHROOM TOWEL HOLDER AND TOILET PAPER HOLDER FELL(YEAH, JUST FELL) OFF THE WALL; AND THE HANDLE BROKE OFF MY SHOWER´S HOT WATER. THIS WAS MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH MAINTENANCE. THE GUY WAS A REAL JERK; FIRST HE SD HE WOULD BE A COUPLE DAYS. I EXPLAINED THE WATER WAS AT FULL BLAST AND I COULD NOT GO A COUPLE DAYS WITHOUT HOT WATER. HE FINALLY CAME OUT AND WAS VERY RUDE. <br>MY LATEST PROBLEM IS NO A/C. HELLO, IT´S LIKE 90 DEGREES OUTSIDE AND IT´S BEEN BROKE FOR ALMOST 2 WEEKS. MAINTENANCE SAID IT WAS WORKING FINE, AND LEFT. MY APT WAS 80 DEGREES AND THE THERMOSTAT WAS SET TO 50. SEVERAL PHONE CALLS I MADE WERE NEVER RETURNED. I EVENTUALLY HAD TO CALL THE REGIONAL OFFICE BECAUSE I WAS TOLD THERE WAS NO MANAGER AT MY APTS OFFICE THAT I COULD TALK TO, YEAH RIGHT. SHORTLY AFTER MY CALL TO… See More>

                                                HORRIBLE

                                                The reserve is terrible! Big apartment for low price is about the only good thing about the complex. Maintenance takes months to fix a problem, the quality of people living here is also a concern. My car was broken into, tires and wheels stolen, had a leaky ceiling for 5 months......Nothing else left to say.... DO NOT LIVE THERE!!!!!!!!
