Biscayne at Cityview Manager

03/23/2015

Dear Relocating from Ohio, First I wish to let you know that Biscayne has now been under the same ownership/ management since Sept. of 2012! The current manager, Manrique has been with our company since 2012 and has been managing Biscayne for almost a year now. Manrique is strict but fair and has resolved many former issues. Our staff works hard to create a pleasant, serene, and friendly environment in which to live. Our management company has implemented extra security measures and we are passionate about crime prevention. Our area has greatly improved over the last two years and continues to improve. We have beautiful parks, a skate park, and great area restaurants. On top of that we are just 15 - 20 minutes to many area attractions such as Old Town Spring, Top Golf, the Woodlands, Willowbrook Mall. We are close to IAH airport and easy access to I-45 and the Hardy Toll for going downtown. We do have a second chance program, and work with 1 broken lease or eviction that is at least 1 year old. You may or may not be required to pay a higher deposit depending on the whole sum of your job history, income, rental history, and background. We screen all applicants thoroughly! Come visit us today and see how we are turning over a new leaf in the area and giving the GREEN back to GREENSPOINT! It is a lovely place to call home. 281-44-LEASE / www.villaserenacommunities.com

As a corporate representative, it concerns me to hear the issues this tenant experienced. This is certainly NOT the normal experience. Our firm has owned the community since 9/2012 and the current manager has been with the property close to two years now. He has brought stability to Biscayne and sets high expectations of his staff. The team that is there now works hard to be diligent and competent with regard to service to residents. Our company strives to create a quiet and peaceful community that people are proud to be a part of and proud to call home. We do this by STRICTLY enforcing policies such as no loud noises, no littering and no sagging pants. We offer unique programs and services with the goal of enriching and enhancing people's lives. Giving back and fostering a true sense of community is important to us. WE TRULY WANT OUR RESIDENT TO FEEL, SAFE, VALUED AND RESPECTED! COME SEE HOW WE HAVE CHANGED! www.villaserenacommunities.com

Come see us NOW! We have made many repairs to this property! We took over 8 area communities, including this one in Sept 2012. Unfortunately it takes time to improve a neglected property, but we have come a long way! We are 1/2 way through a complete exterior renovation. Roofs have received attention and repair and are in much better condition at Biscayne as well as other properties. In some cases we have replaced the roof all together. We strive to employ polite and professional staff, however we have unfortunately experienced some turn-over. Occasionally that is unavoidable, but the current manager has been there almost a year and has made great progress. It is our goal work to employ competent, caring staff to best serve our residents and to enforce our community polices. Our policies, such as no loud noises, no littering and no sagging pants, help to maintain just the type of environment YOU want! Again, visit us and see how we have improved and changed! 281-44 LEASE

This issue has been addressed! Staff is being specifically instructed to limit "patch work" type of repairs to once per a/c per season. Meaning, we WILL get to the bottom of your a/c issue with fewer trips now! We know how awful it is to suffer with no a/c in JULY! Trust me we care and we will do our best to get you back in the cool as fast as we can. A/C's are tricky and can take a couple of visits to narrow down the issue, and if it is just too old and has to go, we will replace it with a new unit! We are now tracking this very closely to limit the number of outages our residents experience. Again, this goes to purchasing an older property with many many old a/c's. You can't replace them all at once, but we put many new ones in last summer and have better more experienced staff and we are ready for the heat this year! Stay COOL with us at Biscayne! www.villaserenacommunities.com 281-44 LEASE

Again, the a/c issue has been addressed! We replaced many last summer and we have prepared maintenance staff with better guidelines for repair this year. Sometimes it does take a couple of visits to narrow down all the issues with an a/c, but we will be working hard to do that as fast as possible this year, with minimal downtime. Trust me, we know it is HOT and we want to keep you COOL. As for it feeling like a "prison", well in order to keep unwanted visitors and trespassers out, (who are the cause of most crime) we have to strictly enforce our community policies. We have now transformed Biscayne from a loud, wild, community of no rules, to a quiet and peaceful community where rule breakers know they will be fined and evicted if they don't abide by the policies. We enforce things like: NO LITTERING, NO SAGGING PANTS, NO LOUD NOISE OR MUSIC AND A 10 PM CURFEW. We do this to create a pleasant, attractive and comfortable place where decent, respectful people want to live! If you wish to embrace this type of lifestyle - COME TOUR TODAY! We are the place for you. If you want to party and be loud and hang around outside property late at night with your friends, well this is NOT the place for you. www.villaserenacommunities.com 281-44- LEASE
