Living at the Tabor East Apartments was surprisingly wonderful. I always felt safe in the neighborhood, the residents were friendly and quiet, and the grounds were always clean. Everything in our apartment worked as you would expect, and any questions/concerns we had were addressed astoundingly quickly by the personable and professional staff. This was a solid place to live for a very solid price, and I would recommend it to anyone I knew who was looking in to live in the South Tabor area.

    Not only did we feel very safe living here, but also the proximity to everything from shopping, entertainment, work, play (Mt Tabor) at no cost to park- was fantastic!!!! The staff was very kind and prompt with any requests. They kept the property exceptionally clean, and constantly monitored the property for any suspicious activities that might be of a concern. The community was always very repectful of each other. Thank you Tabor East for providing a memorable experience!

      We really enjoyed our time at Tabor East. It was a nice place for quite a low cost, convenient location, and the staff were responsive to issues that came up. In addition, annual rent increase was minimal. The only thing we missed was having in-room laundry.

        We lived at Tabor East Apartments for 2 years and had a great experience. The staff was wonderful and very responsive to our needs and concerns. For the area these were very competitively priced, and Mt Tabor being basically in your backyard is a nice perk.

          I lived here for two years with a friend. It's a great location near Mt. Tabor. It's also super convenient to get downtown because the #4 bus picks up right outside the building. The staff is great. They were always helpful and friendly. We had a few maintenance issues that would arise and they always responded to the problems quickly. Everything is done with an online portal which makes scheduling maintenance pretty easy as well. Overall, I don't really have any complaints and I really enjoyed living here.

            My partner and I lived there for a little over a year and loved it. It was a great first apartment for us. We lived on the top floor and enjoyed the view from our baloney of Mt. Tabor. It was quite. There is a pool. And staff is always trying to improve the place well keeping the rent low. Our rent was locked in for two years and when moving out we got our whole deposit back. It is close to bus lines (right outside your door) and in a pretty accessible place. There isn't much directly surrounding it expect neighborhoods but it is easy to get to stores and shops from this location.

              Overall, I really enjoyed living here! Here's some quick thoughts - Pros: .I lived in the bottom floor and it was always cool and quiet (but a bit dark). There are concrete fire walls between units and it really helps keep the temp down .Landlords are friendly and were always totally fair with me and my guests .pool is super well maintained .Close to Mt. Tabor .My 1 bedroom had tons of space Cons: .I have a cheap off brand cell plan and I didn't get very good cellphone reception through the concrete walls. Friends with ATT/Verizon were fine but I had to go outside to make phone calls

                I lived in a 2 bed/ 1 bath for a year and really enjoyed my apartment. There was brand new carpet and fresh paint throughout, and the layout was super open and efficient. The porch could have used a little attention (the rail was rusting and needed new paint). It was a great location across from Mt. Tabor and next to a safe neighborhood I could walk my dog through, though I would lock your car just in case because the neighborhood sometimes has problems with petty car theft. The few maintenance calls I made were answered within 24 hrs. There are older residents have been there for awhile, but everyone I met was friendly.

                    I lived here for 2 years. I loved all my old sweet neighbors, and living across the street from Mt Tabor. With a pool and utilities included, BBQ areas and onsite laundry, it was a tough call to leave. If they had a 3 bedroom option I would have stayed for a lot longer however my family outgrew our 2 bedroom! Really enjoyed Tina and William as well, very personal friendly and helpful. My only negative comment is that the place could stand to be pressure washed, and have the stairs/handrails replaced, but I'm sure they're aware and it's on the radar! Happy home finding

                      I lived at the Tabor East for over 4 years. I love the location and the new management are awesome folks. They allowed me to transfer from my 2bdrm to a 1 bdrm with no hassles at all. They took over 2 hers ago. They were a lttle slow to to get things going, but what do you except when you take over property and need to get to know all the tenants and the workings of everything. Tina and William are awesome people. If you have an issue, just talk to them, and be honest and real. They're very understanding. They've recently put new washer and dryers in the laundry room, AND the even added a few extra too. Tina is awesome with the pool and keeping it open in the summer. They struggled with the pool when the first took over, but since Tina has become the new apt manager.. its been cool. Tabor East is in a great location, is fairly quiet ( for being off a busy/main street) I loved the place, I unfortunately had to move for personal reasons. I'm sad I moved, but there's a time we all must move forward. I did receive my… See More>

                        Lived here a few years now. I was recommending it to some friends and they saw some crappy reviews. There is new management and they made some changes and seemed to have pissed off some old-timers. Personally, I like the improvements. No smoking anywhere!!! - THANK YOU! All new equipment in the laundry room (and I think there's even more washers & dryers than there used to be - I never have to wait anymore). The office people are very friendly and the maintenance guy is quiet but seems to get stuff done. Also, I heard from someone who is a bit chatty that they are cleaning the place up. I've noticed people not living here anymore (people that made my girlfriend nervous like the guy who was always drunk) and the new people coming in seem to be cool and normal. It's not as close in to downtown as I would want ... but the location is convenient and you can't beat it for the price. I give it a 4 star recommendation and I appreciate the new management changes.

                          I'll try to make this short & sweet. The place used to be really nice and extremely well kept. Since the new owner came in it is just a game of how little he can do and get away with. so last year he took 7 months to fix the laundry room, all that time black mole was covering the walls and one or two washers & dryers were actually working. Then he tried to avoid maintaining or opening the pool, that resulted in city inspectors coming and finding all kinds of stuff in the pool, that by then looked more like a swamp. The place is run by a real nice lady that is doing her best, she is one person in-charge of everything for like 50 or 70 apartments and things for the other properties they own as well. it seems like she & the owner has some good cup- bad cup routine going were every time you ask her something and get a reasonable response, you can expect an email hours later saying the exact opposite. The owner is a pathological liar that will never miss an opportunity to screw you over for his benefit. He has tried to take fees that are… See More>

                            Used to be way better when we moved in. Now under new management it sucks. 2 people who manage this place are very hard to reach. There is this one super loud and drunk maintenance guy that is constantly screaming and knocking on people's doors. Creates a hazardous environment. The rent got a little stricter and there are pretty big fees (which is not necessarily the issue, but things just keep adding up) there are stricter policies on parking etc... even though there are move rules and regulations the management is waaaay worst, they need to live up to their own standards. But that one drunk/crazy guy is the biggest issue. Feels like a total hood up here. Hate it. Moving out in a month or two for this exact reason.

                              UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP!!!!!!!!! DO NOT MOVE IN HERE!!!! The former owners cared about the property and the tenants. There were 2 maintenance staff dedicated to the property. The leasing and maintenance staff were available 24/7 for any problem. Anything wrong was fixed immediately! And the office was open 7 days a week. NOW? Now, you never see anyone maintaining the property. The new management seems to look at personal interaction as a disease. The property looks like crap, theft is at an all time high because there is no official presence on the property at any time of the day, the laundry rooms are a health hazard, black mold growing on the walls, filth and scrum built up in the washers( most of which don't work, yes even the dryers are in disrepair), noise is up because they don't enforce quiet time, rumor has it one of the managers was involved in a recent incident where her house guest broke a window to another apartment-word gets around fast with unhappy neighbors, the management team broke the law by entering mailboxes, not once but TWICE, to deliver letters instead of taping on our doors like the previous team did, drunks… See More>

                                My roommates and I moved out a little while ago. We read the reviews were worried about us not getting our deposits back like everyone else who complained. But the management changed this year and we were really surprised to get all of our deposits back fast. After the new management came in, things seemed to go a bit downhill. But you get the sense they are starting to make improvements. If we didn't have to move, we all thought it would be worth staying around because the price is good and the new management sent us a long letter about all the changes that were coming, like no-smoking, free internet, improved laundry room and a few other things i can't remember. So I can't say it's the best place in the world, but it's not bad and I have a feeling it's really going to get better. We'd recommend Tabor East. We liked it here and if it improves with the new managers, that's even better.

                                      This place was a nightmare to live in. At first it gets your attention for the size of The units, and the "semi" modern feel(not really though) we lived here for three years. And it sucked! Horribly nosey management, "looking into your windows". Creepy tenants, weird maintenance people. That's not the worst though. It's(A) Practicly in the same yard as a halfway house rehab center, with loud "just outta prison" folk. (B). By far the highest most insanely overpriced rent you've ever heard of, for what it is. We were paying $975 for a 2 bed 1 bath. We had to pay $25 additional each month for our tiny dog and $25 for Our cat, aaaand $25 a month for our reptile! In addition, we had to put $125 pet deposit for each one! (don't count on ever seeing that again!) (C) the deposits were over $2000! Now, we lived in one unit for 1 yr and then decided to move out and move on. They of course put us together to give us a discount if we moved into another unit and stayed. We caved and did. Remember that 2000 deposit, plus the 375 pet fees? Yeah, not only did we… See More>

                                            Wow I lived there for over 3 years didn't have any problems with the management, did have issues with loud neighbors though. But when I moved out and a month later expecting a least some of my deposit back I got a bill for almost $3,000!!! Now I'm no lawyer but from what I have read and talked to other landlords and friends of mine that rent houses, half the stuff they can't even charge you for after 2 years! They charged me twice for burnt out light bulbs at almost $30 to $75 each charge, THERE ISN'T THAT MUCH WORTH OF LIGHTING IN THERE!!! They charged me for "outlet testing" at $25, they charged $105 for pictures of the unit? They said my dog urinated on the walls (my dog is female and can't physically do that). They charged me labor to "readjust the closet doors" and said there were shelves from the closet missing too. Good thing I got lots of pics. Anyways don't rent unless you wanna spend the time fighting absurd charges.

                                              Tabor East is an absolute rathole. The "high efficiency" all-in-one washer/dryer that is the only in-unit laundry you can get will only hold 3 shirts at a time, takes 3 hours to do one load, and never actually dries anything. We had maintenance there to "fix" ours over and over and we wound up just telling them not to bother fixing it the last time it broke. The pool is dirty and freezing cold even in the hottest part of the summer. I had to replace half my baking pans when we moved in because my standard sheet pans were too big to fit in the oven. We were told when we moved in that rent was high because they were in the process of renovating the whole place, but in three years we never saw any evidence of any such thing. The management is invasive and has no concept of tenant privacy. the unit we moved into looked decent at first, but within a week we noticed black mold growing in the carpet. Oh, and the nightmare of moving out. One of the managers did a walk through before we left and… See More>

                                                I have lived at Tabor East apts off and on since 2001. In fact I have left and come back 3 times. The reason I have done this is the amazing office staff and owners of Tabor East. In 2001 when I first moved here, this place had some very undesirable tenants. The apts themselves had old carpet, flooring, windows and fixtures. A few months after I moved here they had some changes in management and began a very long and I am sure expensive renovation of the Apts. They started slowly getting rid of problem tenants, you know the ones who are loud, obnoxious, don't watch their kids and don't pay their rent and just don't follow the rules. They started with replacing all the windows....to then basically gutting apt's when they were empty and replacing everything....carpet, flooring, sinks, fixtures and appliances. The cool thing is they didn't just replace these things with the cheapest materials and fixtures they actually put some thought and money into what they put in the apt's. Along with updates also came increased rent, but I always felt it was worth it. At one time I knew alot of the tenants here, some of… See More>

If there is a problem, maintenance will be in within 24 hours to fix whatever problem I have. The complex feels very safe, the management staff is courteous and helpful any time I talk to them.
