    Hello, I wanted to write a review for Genesis, she was very nice during my leasing process. Never complained of taking up her time to explain more information about the apartments. Very good to have new management that helps the people, and always had a smile. Thank you for hiring someone so helpful.

            I used the club house for a baby shower. staff had failed to tell us that the AC was not working, neither did the fridge. Yet they still refused to return our refundable deposit of $250 because after cleaning we "missed a spot". very rude and unprofessional manager. border line thieves. i would not recommend this place to my enemies. Avoid at all cost

              I came on town to celebrate my niece baby shower. While visiting my car was tow for no parking pass. I went into the office to see what the deal was and Lady explain that after 8 no visitor or allow unless they have a parking pass. I’m trying to understand how am I suppose to know if there are no clear warning signs posted anywhere. I had to pay 321 dollars to get my car and once I had it back my car made a humming noise and I inform the towing company instead of her calling her manager out as I ask she hand me a piece of paper and said he wasn’t there. I get in my car the next morning to go and speak with him after filling out the claims form in little bold print was car has to be seen before leaving property to fill claim. Scam. The apartments and the tow company point blank period.

                I mean, it's a cheap apartment. You're not staying at the ritz carlton here folks. It is what it is. The bugs happen because of the area. They come and spray and they're gone for a few months and come back. It happens. Oh well. It's not the trash. They're not roaches. They're water bugs. They live in the drains. They look similar to roaches but are not roaches. I'd have moved out if they were roaches. Maintenance is slow sometimes and other times will show up same day. It's hit or miss but they generally fix everything really fast when they're in there. The foundation is kinda sketchy in my unit but i'm not worried about the place toppling over. It's just got cracks in the drywall. As for the front office staff I've had my issues with them but they've fixed all that and the dude that works there is fantastic. He's johnny on the spot with my issues. Parking can be a nightmare. DO NOT FORGET YOUR PARKING PASS. Even if you are in the guest spot you have to have the guest tag or they will tow you. It's irritating as all get out and I… See More>

                  You get what you pay for with this apartment complex. I'm not sure what the prices are now, but my brother and I chose this place because at the time it was the cheapest we could find in the area. However, the cheap price tag came with some setbacks. The apartments themselves are very cheaply made which I had already anticipated. They must have hired the world's laziest painters because they got it everywhere, all over the outlets, light switches, fireplace, etc. My front door gets stuck constantly because of the heat and I usually have to slam my hip into it to get it to open on a sunny day. This place certainly has a bug problem. Yes, you can call the main office and they will notify pest control, but pest control only comes once a week. I usually just keep bug spray on hand. Parking was terrible when we first got here but they did attempt to mend this by turning visitor parking spots into residential spots. However, depending on which part of the complex you live, you will not find parking near your apartment if you come home late. One time I came home late from… See More>

                    If you have no other choice then fine. Live there. but if you do have other choices then go with the other choices. *******ROACH MOTEL. SEWAGE SMELL NO MATTER HOW YOU CLEAN. i CAN'T FOR THE LIFE OF ME UNDERSTAND THE LANDSCAPING BECAUSE EVEN AFTER IT'S DONE IT STILL LOOKS AS THOUGH IT HASN'T BEEN TOUCHED. IT'S A RUN DOWN AREA. CRACKS IN WALLS. MESSY PAINT JOBS. WHICH THEY SLOPPY PATCHED IT UP AND THE ISSUES STILL SHOW. THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THIS COMMUNITY WHO ARE JUST FINE WITH THE SLOPPINESS OF THE PLACE BUT I AM NOT. THESE PLACES WANT TOO MUCH MONEY FOR APT COMMUNITIES THAT SHOULD BE CONDEMNED. THERE ARE NUMEROUS THINGS WRONG WITH THIS PLACE.

                      Worst place I've ever lived. They are running a towing scam in the parking lot. There are no signs or markings for residential parking. I have even seen and heard of longhorn towing out of the visitor spots. There are NO tow signs in the parking lot. NONE. There is one sign as you drive into the apartments off of Coit. They refuse to give you a parking sticker if say you have a rental vehicle. The parking lot is used in the mornings as a road to cut through to the school next to it... you want out... good luck in the mornings. Plumbing is terrible and makes noise. The maintenance is slow at fixing anything... I had issues out for months! I read the reviews before moving in and tried to give this place a chance. It is the WORST.

                        re---------diculous. Maintenance? Near non-existent I have had the same issues in my apartment since my day 1 inventory. But...if you need queso, ice-cream, tamales, daycare, a beer, a stray dog, free cable, automotive work or just want to enjoy the sounds of Tajano just step outside someone will be there to help you shortly. Lower your expectations, shut your mouth and open your wallet....pretty much the rules for survival here. Management is a shell shocked bunch of incompetent head nodders that have about as much delegated authority as student body elect with less input. If "corporate" didn't assign them a schedule I doubt any of them would have the self-inclination to defecate. The smiles and nods are disingenuous and a means to an ends to continue receiving what is likely minimum wage or very close to it. Don't expect guests....EVER Between the lack of parking, 1/4 mile hike, and predatory towing it's unlikely your visitor will ever return. There is tons of new construction at a much better value just north of this property. Don't bother stopping here it's a waste of time.

                          Do not move here, this is the worst ran property I have ever encountered. The management of la Mirada and the property management company Westdale are horrible, they do not care about their residents, do not make repairs (better hope your AC does not go out in the summer) and nickle and dime residents to death. There is NO parking, do not leave the property after 7 in the evening or you will have no where to park. Drunk groups of people in the parking lots, cars and apartments broken into every week, bad foundation (literally had a unit coming down around us), unruley kids running everywhere, loud music, trashy, dirty, and RUDE office staff.

                            Lived here for a year. This is one of the worst apartment homes I've ever lived in. It's constantly noise, people partying all hours of the night. The Richardson P.D. does nothing and it's like living in Mexico because just about all residents "don't speak English". Roaches are a problem but this is common for just about any apartments in Texas. You just have to know what to do to get them under control. While I was there my apartment became infested with bed bugs!! Drugs are sold on the property frequently. And while I was there the complex under went a regime change. The new management sucks. They don't do anything they say they will do and the refuse to give back your deposit when you leave. DO NOT MOVE HERE!

                              I have been living in La Mirada for approximately 4 months now. The area is close to grocery stores and the major highways. Probably the only good thing about the place. But it is the most horrible experience I have had with an apartment complex. Maybe after 4 weeks of living here I discovered that I have mice in the apartment. I called the office to let them know and try and get it taken care of. It was unbelievable. It took them maybe 3 weeks to actually get someone to come and do something about it and that was after me calling maybe 4 times and then having to take time off of work just to go and actually see them in the office. At first I spoke to a guy that didn't do anything and then spoke to Gracie on the phone who turns out never to the woman that handles pest control. So finally when I went into the office and talk to Leidi about it she said she had no idea about the problem and also told me that requesting to change to a different apartment because of mice is not a good enough reason.… See More>

                                Moved in Aug/2014. Already I'm so disgusted. I have to have pest control come almost every week. Maintenance comes by request, but NEVER completely fix things, more so patch work. They charge a $50 fee if your dog is not on a leash, so why I see so many dogs running freely, not to mention the dog poop I have to avoid. The fees are ridiculous. I can't wait until my lease is up. I'm out of here.

                                  When we moved into this place the apartment was filthy. There was makeup on the sink, and the toilet was disgusting. It had obviously never been cleaned prior to our move in. That wasn't THAT big of a deal except when I moved out they have the nerve to charge me a cleaning fee. I've lived in four other apartments and they only charge if your apartment was filthy. This one had only been lived in for three months basically just to sleep at. It looked better when we left than when we moved in. I disputed the charges with them and after a few emails my final response was asking about the $300 fees and I never received a response. Since I hadn't heard anything I thought they agreed and dropped the fees. I never received anything else in the mail. 10 months later, they decide to put this on my credit report. Mind you, I was never notified that I still owed this amount. They obviously had my address because they sent the first letter to me. DO NOT MOVE HERE. It is tempting because of the price, but this is a shady company. Read some more reviews… See More>

                                    I have lived in LaMirada a yr and a half. The office staff is polite and helpful. I don't have a roach problem. We keep the place clean and I have wonderful neighbors, which is a huge plus! I'm glad that we live up front, parking is usually not an issue on my end, unless there is construction going on. On the other where my friend lives parking is horrible. Sometimes the kids around here are loud and disrespectful. Last year someone tried to break into our apartment, RPD responded quickly & followed up with us as well. Overall the stay here has pretty good.

                                      The best apartment anyone can ever live in. Big, spacious interior. Grocery, bus stand, two walmart stores, Mcdonalds, target and Ross just minutes away. The service is excellent. The lease office people are very friendly and always ready to help and answer questions. I see some people complaining about roaches but I lived there for four and a half years and did not have such problem because I kept my apartment clean, so it is a matter of personal hygiene, please do not blame the apartment for it. Anyone who moves in will have a wonderful experience and will be glad to call it home. The rent is very reasonable. There are many apartments that will charge you more than a $1000 for a tree house where as La Mirada will provide you more for less money therefore moving into La Mirada will be a win-win situation.

                                        First things first. Roaches. If you maintain it. Spray around, not keep food out. You'll have the roach problem under somewhat control. But there definitely is a roach problem. If you are on a budget. It's a decent. There's a lot of places around. Cops are straight up dumb. As I'm walking into my house they'll tell me to come back outside and question me. They patrol often. Often mistake residents for criminals. If you don't want to be harassed on your way from parking to your apartment. Well, that's unfortunate.

                                            the latest review sounds right on target for this roach motel called La Mirada. Nothing but --------- here. Like being in Mexico. People do smoke weed right outside without a care in the world. Mojo music blaring constantly from the interstate that runs through the complex and neighbors blaring their bass thumping carnival music all weekend. Bud light enjoyed openly by guys next to their Silverados who stare you down as you walk by. Then they pee next to the tree or wherever. Their 8-10 kids running around at all hours of the night with no supervision. The current management (Westdale) is horrible. Nothing but B's up in there or idiots who just started and have no authority to even answer a basic question. Maintenance requests go unanswered unless you complain. Never mind leaving a message after hours because the calls are NEVER returned. This place is paradise, if you're an illegal alien looking to blend in. The washer and dryers are ALWAYS broken or full. But never has a sign to warn you and they never seems to fix a damn thing. Lastly, even the coke machine routinely steals my freakin dollar. G-H-E-T-T-O.

They have constantly been lying as to who makes the decisions. My elderly aunt resides there, she resides there with her daughter, and someone was outside of the apartment smoking weed, and the police was called, no citations or names were taken by the Richardson Police Department, but they sent the police to my aunts residence to tell her she would be evicted because someone in her house was smoking weed. The first issue is no one at the house smokes weed, and this was just a random individual in the apartment complex, thirdly marijuana is illegal and if the police department catch you with it, a charge should be summoned on that individual, not to target the only African american woman in a unit that is full of ---------. By no means am I racist or anything but, that is all that is employed at this complex. This happened on the 2nd of January, my aunt paid her rent on the 3rd, the complex politely came… See More>

                                                Worst apartments I've ever lived in. They OVERCHARGED us on rent...if I'm gonna be paying for a bigger apartment then I damn well want it. They take weeks to get to the maintenance request I put in, stuff breaks all the time in the apartment, I got stuck in the bathroom cause the freaking knob broke off. When I went in to do the conditions report there was broken stuff everywhere. water underneath the bathroom floor that squirted out when you stepped on it. They have not a care in the world about who parks in the resident parking and who HOGS the visitor parking. two cars have been SITTING in the visitor parking for ATLEAST TWO MONTHS. Do they care? Hell no. The girl gabby in the office is a major ----- and one the two guys just totally sucks at his job. BOTTOM LINE: DON'T LIVE HERE THEY LIE, CHEAT, AND COULDNT GIVE A ---- LESS WHAT GOES ON IN THE COMPLEX BECAUSE "OH I DONT LIVE HERE."

                                                  Worst apartments ive lived in yet!

                                                  This is by far one of the worst apartment I've lived in. I've had issues that need to be fixed however its been over a week. The trash facilities are constantly overflowing with garbage. The paths and walking areas are littered with garbage. I've had chairs stolen off my porch. There are roaches and ants everywhere. I've lived here for three months and really have nothing good to say about this place. Not worth the almost $1k I spend here a month... I just hope this new management can turn this place around. I would really like to see grass when I look outside.
