Resident • 2008 - 2010
I wanted to make sure I updated my review of this place as I no longer live there. The start of my stay there was great and they were moving in a good direction...as you can see below. Sadly, not long after my review, the manager Steve had a medical issue and was no longer there. After he left the place just fell apart...
They did replace the outside decks...granted I lost access to the patio for almost 8 months to have this happen...but the other items that started going on were too much for me to bear anymore and I had to leave.
The parking issues that others mention are more than prominent now. The lot looks more like a junk heap than anything else. Trashed tossed all over and if you have a pet, please know to watch where you step. Not only do some not clean up after their dogs, but you may also find yourself stepping on used drug needles (Yes that was not a happy day rushing to the vet). Roaches have seemed to now infest most of the buildings (At least on the side I was on) and current management does little to nothing.
Showing the managers are never really around, I had a lease expire, yet I didn't get new paperwork presented for over 5 months to me. Not overall bad as that gave me time to get into where I am now without having to add in the "Mystery" charges to jump the rent but never improve the place at this point.
I wish I could say stay, as it was a nice place when I had started there...but at this point don't even waste your time. If it were possible below I would be giving NEGATIVE stars...
I have been here a little over a year now and it's not a bad place to be, can take my opinion for what it's worth to ya...
So here is my review:
Neighbors: neighbors are rather friendly (the real problem family's have been removed over the last 6-8 months and it's been much,much nicer). Have not had any issue making friends and most people are very happy to say hello and stop to chat for a little when you see them.
Parking: Not too bad...assigned spaces and fairly ok guest parking. Could be a little better, but is better than a lot of other places I have been...
Trash: Bins are easily accessed and recycle containers are easy to find
Apartments: Get a lot of room...stay rather cool all summer so don't have to run the A/C often, but nice that they have them(I'm an upper that has it, not sure if all do, but I can only go by what I have). Good lighting in the parking lots and it's rather safe. I have no seen any real issues or problems here, so if you're a lady...you could feel safe at night living here.
Management: Steve is really great. Has a very good relationship with all the residents and knows you by name. Happy to chat if you want to talk about something or offer idea on how to make something better. Quick to respond if you are having an issue. Wears many different "hats" per say around the place but does a really good job of managing it all. Generally a really nice guy that cares about the people here.
Overall: Not too bad. They have really put work into it since I have been here and it keep getting better. I'm staying through end of the year on a renewal. I have my own issues with some things that I brought up and they are being worked on (not all at once and that's to be expected).
Recommendation: If you are looking for a 2 bedroom that is not the highest end (As these are older) but still want a spacious place that is fairly safe and a really good property manager...then come on over...
