All I can say is that this place is the best apartment complex my wife and I have ever lived. I have read some other reviews and let me tell you, people that give bad reviews are just people that have nothing better to doSee More >

Horrible management, took two months to get a room transfer done to the point where I ended up not doing it. I’m not going to re-sign my lease unless there is a new management. Throughout the entire freeze we lost power and water and weSee More >

The apartments are lovely inside and in a great location. However, management has something left to be desired. In the single year I've lived here, the fire alarms have gone off throughout the complex four times. Because they require the alarm company to come onsiteSee More >

The management is very rude. The place is always dirty. Maintenance just drives around in golf carts, talking on the phone. The place is not secure. There have been several car break ins. I had I package stolen at my door and another ripped open,See More >

I will keep it short...we should have 2-4 security personnel on the grounds 24/7. There have been vehicles broken into fairly regular, I leave for work between 2-3 in the morning. It does make me a little nervous but it's necessary. Since we have lockedSee More >

I have lived here over a year and the place is overpriced! The residents have no respect for security. I don't believe they do background checks cause the new residents moving in recently are completely disrespectful. Someone plays loud -------- music every Saturday morning inSee More >

Moved in on January 9, 2019 and was burglarized on January 14, 2019. I thought this was a safe property; it is not. There have been numerous car and house break-ins. NO VIDEO, NOT A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE.

Very Unsafe. Zero commitment to safety of residents by leasing office management. I have been living here for about 10 months and there has been couple of breakins even as assault. Security people are just for formality to check how many guests are in pool andSee More >

The Portico at West 8 is a fabulous place to live. Not only do the apartments and apartment grounds look gorgeous, the people managing the facility are fantastic too. The front office's team, Daniel, Nancy, and Clarence, truly go the distance in making our staySee More >

We lived at Portico for over 3 years. We experienced a positive experience for the most part. There were a lot of Pro's but we had our few shares of Con's. The leasing office was always very helpful. Clarance and Nancy were ALWAYS on topSee More >
