neighbors from hell

I live here for a year and it my look like a nice quiet place to live but don't be fooled. The first day I moved in the neighbors across the way was having a loud party, they left red plastic cups in the parking lot. There are no visitors parking so was when you come home there's no guarantee that you will park near your building. Maintenance sucks they wouldn't know what a screw driver is if it fell and hit them in the head. The gym suck all the equipment looks like it was from the stone age or rushed. The neighbors that lived next to me was nasty they would always leave their trash outside on the front step and the dumpster was like less than 50ft from them. Then the new neighbors moved in down stairs. I was always having headaches because they were constantly smoking weed. The smell was soo strong I couldn't turn my heat on because it was coming through the vents and on top of the smoke sessions, they would always be yelling and talking loud. I thought it was a great place. It's the worst place I could have pick… See More>

    Not again

    Lived there a year. Maintenance people were nice but didnt know what they were doing. They could do basics and that was it. We called them out several times due tot he heater not working right - and to pull the breaker just to get it to turn off. They finally fixed it. The people next door smoked like crazy in their apartment so anytime we turned on our AC or Heat we smelled it and it was disgusting!! The people in the office were not professional. One girl hung out with people that did drugs and had people in and out of her apt all hours of the night. She wore the same suit and the pant hem need repair badly. She was over heard yelling profanities in the parking lot one night. City began working on the road next to us so that was noisy and very dusty. Boiler that heated the water broke down several times. That is okay in the summer but the winter is verrrry cold to shower. A very old an unrealiable way to heat water. Noisy complex at night. We saw people park in our lot that lived in the complex next door. Parking was sparse and… See More>

      Its been nice

      My husband and I lived here for a year, never had any problems. When we got in, we made sure to write all the things it had wrong with it and the maitnance guys arrived the next day to fix it all(they are always very curtious). Also, With the police department right down the street, the outside lighting and 2 dead bolts on the door I felt safe staying home alone. However, the walls are paper thin; you can hear every conversation going on between the neighbors. The parking is sparce, finding a parking spot in front of your building is impossible unless you have a paid parking spot. The people in the front office, are always kind and try to solve your problems right away. the apartments are always kept neat, the grass is constantly mowed and the hedges are never untamed.

        its okkaayyy :/

        I have lived here for almost a year, and its okay. Water Bills are outrageous!! For a one bdrm, one bath, two people, and no washer and dryer connections = [$50-$60] a month! I have a major ant problem in my closet, called the office and was told that I would have to wait for the next week because they were working with a new pest control company. By the way, the ants are still in there!(2 weeks later) Parking is not the best. Our lease is up at the end of March, and were definately moving! The upgrades are nice, sure..but we found even better upgrades for less money! And were ready to get away from our noisy neighbors, running up and down the stairs, banging/moving stuff around at night! Our pictures and wall decor literally shake!

            Ok at first......

            When I first moved here (November 08) it was nice. Quiet, clean, way better than the last apartment I was in so I was happy. Then it all went down hill starting after Christmas. First of all, crime. This is why I put one star for Safety. There have been multiple break-ins (apartments and cars) every month. The management never tells you any of this happens. I know because the girls that lived across the breezeway from me got their car AND apartment broken into, and about 2 weeks ago, the Bedford Crime Scene Unit van was over at the building next to me for 5 hours one night. Plus I read about something new happening all the time in the newspaper. The parking SUCKS depending on what building you are in. Some places no matter what day or time it is have tons of open parking, others don't. Unfortunately, I live by all the white trash people that have 3 broken down trucks that they are continuously 'fixing.' Many people in the building have spoken to management and they have done nothing about it. Noise is also an issue. This, I suppose, also depends on where you live in the community.… See More>

              GREAT APTS!

              Hmm. Im not sure of these bad reviews but if that was the case, the new management is great! My husband and I will be moving in May, and so far we have had great customer service, especially John. He was upbeat and very helpful. My husband even liked him and made jokes and got along with. Anyone who knows my husband, knows how hard he is to get along with! The apartments were clean and well maintained. The roads are in good shape, and the 3 times we went it was quiet, and we went at different times like on the weekend and during the week. Also, I love the upgrade! Black apliances and the color of the walls are beige maybe a little yellow. So far i like it! I will post another review after 3 months!

                Third owners (bought complex to "upgrade" then sell) in 3 years. Noice, car mufflers, and two Section 8 complexes across the street. Non-residents use the pool late at night, mostly low-end tennants. I can't move fast enough.

                  Beware

                  This is the worst apartment complex that I have seen. The parking is really bad. There are constant loud piped motorcycles leaving the parking lot. The water sprinklers go off and on all night. We have had maintenance issues that are fire hazards that have not been repaired. I am considering contacting OSHA to maybe get something resolved. They are in the process of remodeling the apartments with the cheapest parts and pieces. The workmanship is awful. The office people were real nice when you were signing the lease, but can't give you the time of day after the fact. I know I will not be renewing my lease.

                    If I was single, I'd move back!

                    I lived in a little 480 sq. ft. box (that used the space VERY well) in the time leading up to my wedding, and have to say that it was a pretty decent place to live. The place is well-kept, well-lit, and management is extremely polite and courteous. The rent was a bargin. I no problems at all during the time I lived here. BONUS: First and only apartment of mine for me to never make a maintenance request!

                      5 years and I love it! NEVER HAD A PROBLEM

                      the "year at apartment" says 2005 to 2005 but i was there from 2005 to 2010) ok so apartment owners cant teach people how to be better people! so if you move near a person thats loud and lazy and nasty then that is NOT the apartment owners or office workers issue. they get paid to manage apartments not people! how would you like if you got a note saying um yall are too dam loud and nasty so we are gonna need you to contain your selves? if you got that letter you would feel very intimidated and probably think that letter refers to you and you would move i bet plus people need a place to live, and YES in this economy if you got the money, you have a place to live point blank. ok so enough of that, i lived at KS for 5 years and i love it but i moved back home to go to school full time so i quit my job and moved out and i miss the hell out of it but i cant change the past but you can plan your future and I RECOMMEND THAT YOU PLAN ON MOVING… See More>

                        This has been a great apartment complex!

                        I have rented two apartments from this place - a one bedroom that was my first apartment and now a second bedroom. My experience with this complex has been great! They have always been helpful and courteous to me. I don't understand some comments that are being made about staff being rude, because that has never even REMOTELY been my experience with them, nor have I ever seen them exhibit this behavior toward any of their tenants. Any time there has been a problem, it has been quickly and professionally resolved. Maintenance has been great. Any time something was wrong, I would report it to the office and it was usually taken care of within 2 days. There was an instance where the drain pipe under the sink of my first apartment kept detaching from the drain, but every time I called the office it was fixed by the next day. (Also, by the 3rd call it was fixed permanently.). I noticed another person stated there is a huge crime problem and that the cops are at the apartments 1-2 times daily, but what they failed to mention is that the police station is literally on… See More>

                          Management is rude

                          I lived in Colonial Village for quite a while, and when I first moved in I loved it. The location, apartments, and management was wonderful but that changed. The current management is rude, unprofessional, and very unfriendly. The quality of residents has also declined. I would not recommend this community to anyone.

                                      We are on our 3rd refridgerator; 2nd stove; AC is always leaking; they came to caulk 2 bedroom windows but caulked one room twice and the other they forgot about. Replaced flooring FINALLY then they replaced with with non-matching flooring from the rest of the apartment. Problem after Problem!! Parking is a huge headache - they have tons of covered parking but very little "free" parking. Also when we call to get something fixed, they never come. We have to call and call and call before someone shows.

I have read most of Bedford, Tx apartments review for apartments in this area and Colonial was the best ratings off all other's. My apartment is small because thats what i can afford but I love the area and the staff are professionally dressed and nice. I hope nothing chages when I move in.

                                          This is the third apartment that I've lived in on this property and I've loved every single one. The staff was extrememly helpful each time I transfered to a different unit and showed me several different apartments on several different occassions while I was debating over which floor plan I wanted. I've never had any problems with noise and have always felt extremely safe. The property is well lit and is walking distance from the bedford police station. Since Colonial bought out the property it has only gotten better! The entire property was repainted and the parking lot was resurfaced (not that I even noticed that it needed it). A few other things I noticed were the new pool furniture(by the way the pool is NEVER crowded), and more work out equiptment was added to the gym. There are regularly scheduled communtity activites like cook-outs and poker nights. My work schedule never permits me to attend, but it's nice to know it's available. Maintenance is prompt and efficient and even installed my new shower head that I'd purchased! I should also add that in the two years I've lived here I've only had… See More>

THESES PEOPLE WILL RIP YOU OFF ANY WAY THEY CAN AND THIS PLACE IS GOING DOWN HILL VERY FAST. there is poop everywhere and when you go to complain about it they act like you are bothering them by even calling.also they try to raise your rent on you like $50.00 when it is time for you to sign a new lease. I hate it here and can not wait to move.

                                                  Mostly great!

                                                  Aside from the lack of parking spaces, I highly recommend Park Village. The office staff couldn't be any nicer than they already are. I believe Cornerstone Realty is THE best out there, having lived in at least 4 or 5 other apartments around DFW. My 521 square foot apartment is too small for comfort, but utilities work perfectly, the upstairs neighbor only makes noise with their shower and that's very nice. One day I called the office to notify them that the outside building light didn't work and it was fixed the SAME day. One other little detail they could work on is cleaning up the dog doo constantly left in the grass. People know that big dogs leave BIG messes, don't they? :) & The Bedford Police Station is walking distance -- how's that for safety? :)
