Resident 2017 - 2023

Tenant for 7 years

I have lived at Karen Park Apartments for a little over 7 years. I have to say, before moving hear I hopped around to different apartments for years. This is the longest I've ever stayed longer than a year or two. Between the Landlord, maintenance, and even other tenants, this has been a great experience. You can't beat the neighborhood and great location to everything around you.

    Was a little worried before moving in after reading some of the reviews but Karen Park has been great. They renovated it and for the price and location you really can't beat it. The landlord and staff are very easy to deal with and after being here for almost a year i can't say i have many complaints.

        DO NOT LIVE HERE. They will claim that they are having renovations but you will see no progress. The building is terribly old and dusty. They will make you sign a lease saying there's still lead in the walls.... Walls are super thin, and neighbors will complain about any noise but there would always be a commotion outside. We have swept and mopped our apartment twice ina week and still deal with dust. This building is basically an old building with a "paint job". Don't be fooled for the price. The landlords are extremely rude and will not be willing to work with you. If they don't want you there they will try to sue you. Even been threatened to be watched over surveillance cameras. It's never worth living somewhere and paying rent to someone who doesn't care about their tenants. Especially tenants who have no bad records and lived in multiple apartments! We were forced and threatened to leave. Not worth your time or money.

          I'd like to start off by saying the idea of this Apartment complex is great, the staff/maintenance are kind, however, unorganized and the quality of the work is not the best. It could be a great place to live if some issues listed are eventually resolved. I currently live in one of the renovated two bedrooms offered at Karen Park Apartments. When I first moved into the building I was under the impression it was too good to be true. A parking lot, locked or key in entry, 24 hour emergency maintenance and pet friendly! Amazing right? The only fall back was that the building was under going renovation and it'd be a tad noisy / dirty at times... Well, I was a tad mistaken. I've been here for half a year thus far and the actual building itself has faced little to no improvement with renovation. The building is also not the cleanest or well maintained throughout. The tenants are also questionable. Details: -It's filthy in the common areas & outdated. Moldy old unkept carpets, holes in walls exposing piping, never cleaned coin laundry room with machines that barely work. - The exterior is not maintained at all. There's… See More>

            Please Consider.; quiet location, close to literally everything, and even a great price. I've been here for 2 years and I love my location. If there are ever any problems the maintenance team is right on it and it is handled right away! #BestCityValue

              I currently live here and if you are thinking about living here, hopefully you read this before you make that decision. DO NOT, please for heaven's sake DO NOT sign that lease. I've lived in a few different apartment complexes, in the city and out of the city but this place takes the cake and is by far the worst. Sure, the price is awesome but you know what they say, "you get what you pay for." If you LOVE spiders, bed bugs, cock roaches, centipedes and awfully loud and obnoxious neighbors, then this is the place for you. If you are a normal person, a normal human being then this is not the place for you. Also, the landlord won't do anything to help you out. He will jsut give you the run around over and over again and maybe, just maybe he will fix it 8 months later. Maybe. Even if this place is a last resort and you are in need of somewhere to live, don't do it, I rather have checked myself in at the shelter then signed this lease. Womp, womp.

                I moved to Karen park apts November 2014 & so far so good. Great neighborhood, nice people in the neighborhood, you always see people walking their dogs & they speak. The apt is a nice size, very large closet & I have a 1bedroom. The walls are super paper thin, u hear Everything upstairs!!! The parking is free in the back but the parking lot needs to be redone because it's little pots holes & rocks Everywhere but I guess cause it's free they don't really care. My neighbor is nice, maintenance always there when you need them, management always response to whatever if needed. I don't like that they control the gas but We have to pay the gas bill smh don't like that!!! The laundry room I never used but it's not to pretty in there they also need to remodel that whole laundry room so us tenets can start using it.... Overall the place is nice!!!

                  If you are interested in a nice quiet location, just two minutes from the park and a short ride to down town, then this is the place for you! I really love the area. It is owned by a small company that lends a personal touch to the "management- tenant relationship".

                    My boyfriend and I moved in to Karen Park in December of 2013. We wish we had spoken with the neighbors before moving in so we were Informed of some issues before signing the lease. This is our first apartment together and all in all we are pretty happy with it. Our main priority was to be as close to the park as possible and you cannot beat the location here at Karen park. The neighborhood is also great, a lot of friendly people are always out walking their dogs. The size of our one bedroom is fantastic for the price and they completely renovated the kitchen for us upon moving in with new cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The things we wish we knew before moving in however include the following: the walls are paper thin and we can hear everything our neighbors above us talk about (or yell about) at all hours of the night. People smoke in the hallways and in their rooms which is unpleasant for anyone who does not smoke. The fire alarms go off constantly, at any hour until one of the tenants goes down to manually turn it off which is dangerous… See More>

                          Lies lies lies. The people that live here are ratchet. Rap music all day, dog ---- every where, parties all the time, trash in hallways, bats! Nice location horrible maintenance. I got robbed last month. Someone kicked in my door and apparently this has happened many times before! I hate this place. DONT MOVE HERE.

                                I wrote one of the two posting listed here for this property...BE WARNED DO NOT MOVE HERE...there have been a string of home invasions and no one seems interested in finding out who the culprit is...About a month and a half ago a cop knocked on my door in error and said that it was a slue of robberies in the building but he had the wrong apartment...he said it was 6 in one day...then a little over a month later it was my turn...needless to say with the problems that I posted before and this I moved within the week... Please do not be fooled by the appearance especially now because they painted and added new carpet this building is the worst, you can hear everything in other apartments, neighbors leave bags of trash in the hallway, cause they are too lazy to take it to the dumpster, and some of the mailboxes don t have locks. Tenants use a code to enter the building and give it out to family and friends so you never know who is wondering the halls.

                                  DO NOT RENT HERE!!!

                                  I currently live at Karen Park and I am regretting signing the lease everyday. The maintenance is horrible and they do not respond no matter how urgent the issue is. I have a leaking ceiling that leaks when it rains/snow melts and any other type of precipitation is in the air. I have called numerous times to no avail. Find residence elsewhere, I don t care what they offer to move in; the headache from the lack of upkeep is not worth it. The laundry room if you can call it that, is comprised of one lone washer and dryer that is very out dated....and like everything else here is use at your own risk. Beware of those that answer your every request before you move in because they will be the same people that you can't locate when there is a problem.

                                    Horrible Management

                                    I lived at KPA and must warn anyone interested in the building on the horrible management. I did not have heat in my apartment until late December despite calling everyday to have maintenance fix the problem. The original air conditioning unit in the apartment was hooked up to an outlet that lit on fire when turned on. This unit was finally replaced a year later after multiple phone calls, and the manager had the audacity to request that I personally pay for half of the new unit. The safety of the building is marginal. Anyone can come and go into the building, and many of the doors to apartments show signs of past break ins. The alarm system advertised during the tour of the building is a farce- it doesn't work and isn't set up. The laundry room has two washers and dryers, all that are routinely vandalized and non-operable. The heat and water bill is split between all tenants, so if you live alone, you pay just as much as full families. You may as well consider your security deposit as nonrefundable. Despite an impeccable apartment, I was denied my deposit, and the manager refused to return my phone… See More>
