These are relatively old apartments built in the early 60's. They are very basic and in need of modernization. Apartments were purchased by a family business who own a couple other complexes, so not a lot of focus on Janwood these days. The good-affordable but he's… See More

Carter is a very reasonable landlord and does care about his tenants. Also, there is a very quick turnaround on all maintenance issues. If you have reasonable neighbors, noise is not really an issue as it seems most of the tenants who wrote reviews have had… See More
Janwood Apartments Manager02/21/2012

I am the manager and owner of Janwood and I want to thank anonymous(11/26/11) for pointing out "maintenance issues are addressed promptly". This is, after all the central theme at Janwood which accounts for why Janwood has won a 100% satisfaction rating from all other tenants posting their experience at this website. However, there is no doubt about it: community living brings with it the need to adjust to neighbors just as they adjust to you. But, Janwood will not allow any tenant to willfully disturb another and in this case the cause of the problem has been resolved to everyone's satisfaction. Parking permits are assigned to each tenant and there is adequate parking reserved but specific spaces are not assigned. During an occasional winter snowstorm, snow drifting may require a tenant to use street parking. But since Janwood is located in a quiet, low density single-family neighborhood with plenty of street parking, this temporary inconvenience should not be thought of as a reason not to live at Janwood. In fact Anonymous has found plenty to be happy about at Janwood since he has been living here since 2008. Potential tenants would be well advised to look beyond this review to see why other tenants have given Janwood the 100% approval rating it previously enjoyed. Carter
