Happy Resident!!! Great Place to live.

well just to let everyone who reads this that i have lived in this community for several years. and yes it has changed for the better. Ever since the new company has taken over everything is so much better. Alot quieter. The office staff is great.!!! Very Friendly.Boy the previous review seems to be very unhappy , not only unhappy but seems to be one of those nosey residents,THIS person must not have a life if he or she is keeping up with everyone else's life.As for for the saftey of our children that is all up to us not to the management team. Remember they are our children not theres. I have loved living here and plan on staying here . MY children also love it here. As the maint. i have always had my tickets done on a timely matter. My husband and i enjoy our evening walks by the lakes. I have refered several family, friends to The Lake.

    Please, Do Not Lease Here!!! For the safety of your children and yourselves!

    Okay, you wanna know the scoop! Here it goes. We moved here Mid 2008. OMG! This place was alright (not perfect), but now it is just ridiculous (the stuff begins to unfold once you're here)....Okay where my family and I are located we have warned the rebellious kids to stay away from our apt. since we've heard that there have been break-ins at random places on the community. When I mean kids, i mean grown people that act like teenagers.... If you haven't noticed in Oct-Nov we got a new manager, cause the other one was promoted (okay, Congrats, -----!). But the new manager only lasted about 2 months! Wanna know y? She was caught having a sexual relationship with -------, the leasing agent in an apartment and was stealing money, so obviously the leasing agent was her accomplice. They are no longer here. Now, there is a new manager. Okay, instead of trying to fire the maintenance we have, the ones that are and have been hard-working and not-to-mention over-worked (one of them-still working for the company), and hiring a new maint. staff whom keep in mind need to learn about the property and important info on the… See More>

      please read

      like one of the other people said the good review had to be by a staff member. this is the worst place ive lived in my life. the only nice poeple on staff are the maintance people (witch are slow to get to your problems becouse their over worked). they have had police inforced curfues becouse of all the trash that live here. please dont believe me come ask three people that look like they have the same values you have (if you can find three) that live here. if i wasnt working on my credit i brake my lease

        crap

        These apartments are crap. They seem so nice to get you to move in. They overhype this property, then you move in and realize that you have been scammed. I have complained about SEVERAL things that need to be fixed (very important stuff) and they haven't done anything. They keep promising the will and then they never come through. There's always an excuse. I know it's cheap, but I'd rather pay more to live somewhere more peaceful.

          VERY NICE!

          Not every apartment complex is perfect, but The Lake Apartments are very clean, and nice! The staff is very helpful and friendly! The Lake has a nice sized and located pool, and parks. I think its safe for familys and children. I highly recomend The Lake!

            not a safe place at all. theres drug dealers everywhere you look and most of the time they are asking you if you want to buy some stuff. Cars have been stolen there in daylight. the maintanice doesnt do a very good job, when they replaced all the ac units they didnt do mine right. it rattles and leaks all over the bathroom. they still haven't come out to fix it yet and its been 3 months. we had to fix it to where it doesnt leak any more but the cover for it falls down all the time. our balcony was unsafe for the first 7 months we lived there. they finally came and reatached the railing to the wall. one of the steel bars that holds the sliding door together has been loose for the entire time that we have lived there. the management lies to your face and then complains about you haveing people at your house. i thought that in america you were able to have anyone you want at your house whenever you wanted them there. is it a crime to have friends anymore??? when something bad does happen to you, they usually dont believe… See More>

              DON'T DO IT

              I can't believe that anyone would recommend living here. I live here and have had hell since the new management took over JAW. A guy was found murdered, bi-weekly cr break ins, and drug trafficking. Since the big argument that I had with management which resulted in me calling the housing authority and BBB, I finally saw a sparten security officer which is a HPD officer. He told me that they had a marijuana party at the pool and could not understand why he was breaking it up. I can tell you why, because the office workers do drugs, and it is noted that they hang with the drug heads on the property. After a fire due to bad electrical wiring, 6 a/c outages, and broken refrig later, I asked if I could buy out of my lease; they told me no! I had to sub lease it out and even with that option; the office had to approve the renter. I could have easily left this rotten place overnight like many do; but I have value my credit; and I tried to do this properly. This place is not for single moms, because there's too… See More>

                This is the Worse Place!

                i am sure that whomever is writing the reviews work for the complex. If you personally go there and randomly speak to anyone, they will tell you of the horror stories that goes on there on a regular. An 11 year old girl was raped, a guy was found murdered, and the -------- maintenance never fix things properly and they steal from you. There's a lawsuit in the process going on with these people and they just took over as of August 07. The staff does drugs with the residents, the cops are called out on a regular, and the staff will lie to your face if you ask them about it. This is a suburban ------ there. Again, if you don't believe me, just visit and ask some of the residents and they will tell you the whole truth. I am not some angry individual, I use to live there and paid my rent on time and still never got anything resolved. Do not move here.

                    seeing great changes every day

                    I have been a resident for almost three years. There was word of the property being taken over by new management, and I was hesitant to renew my last lease. I was unsure, as most people would be,if all the promises of new aminities would actually happen. I am very happy I decided to stay. Every day when I come home I see positive changes. When i go to the office i now see smiling faces. My children are very excited they now have a beautiful play ground, and I am proud to bring guest over to my house. The new exterior paint has made a tremendous change!

                      What a fabulous place for kids!!!

                      I moved into The Lake almost a year ago. I was getting ready to move when my lease ended on 31 October but forget that. There is a new owner who must be spending millions fixing the place up. I guess he has kids because overnight they have put in a bunch of great stuff for kids. They expanded their existing playground into a playground bigger than the one at my kid's school plus they are putting in a SECOND playground by the office. There are two pools that are open and clean every day. Plus Monique in the office just told me that owner just placed a $10,000 order for bass and catfish to stock the lake so that you actually catch fish!!!! On top of all this, they have fixed up and painted the whole complex. Monique told me that every air conditioner that is over 5 years old will be replaced next month and a computer center is being installed in the office that is free for all tenants to use!!! They have installed all new lighting. It is funny to look over at the dark dungeon… See More>

                        You get what you pay for

                        I moved in here under desperate circumstances. This would NOT have been my first choice, but I knew it was temporary. I've been here for two years. Maintenance wise, everything was well taken care of. However, don't let the lake fool you. There are many snakes, and the ducks are disgusting (they aren't so cute when they poop all over your patio.) I have had things taken off my patio (a bird feeder that my six year old made?) and even my laundry room (my fault for not locking it.) The kicker is that management, who has NEVER had a problem with me, gave me a lot of grief when it came time for me to move out. They really gave me a run around. The apartment itself is very old small. It wasn't a horrible experience, but it wasn't the best.

                          Decent for singles/couples, no kids

                          Been here almost 2 years now. I like the location, right behind Hwy 6.<br><br>Management office personnel changed over completely since I first got here, but all of them have been nice, and relatively responsive, also accomodating. Of course, I pay my rent on time, every month. Also, online rent payment, w/o service charges is great!<br><br>Maintenance-wise, they've been slightly better than average in response, but slightly below average in resolution. First 6 months I was here I had a major issue. They came out once and thought they fixed problem, as did I. Day later, I found out they did not. They came back out again, found something else, and thought it was fixed, as did I. Wrong again. Couple days after that, I noticed it still existsed. Last time they came out, they found out what the root problem was and fixed it, but it took few days for it to completely be resolved. Due to nature of issue, I would have liked a credit for that month's rent, since from date I reported problem initially to when it finally got taken care of was about 3 weeks almost. I did however, get a smaller amount worth of credit. So… See More>
