Verified Resident 2017


Things are good as expected. Nice pool area, nice gym. BBQ place is good. Nice apartments and clean. It could be good that USPS packages be delivered right at door. Also good promotions to keep current residents to continue their lease.

        I have enjoyed my time at this property. The office and maintenance staff is always very professional and courteous. All requests are handled promptly. While I feel the rates are overpriced, my prior experience with the property and staff keep me here.

          I enjoyed living here so much. The apartment is clean and well-maintained. The staff is nice and welcoming. The neighbours are friendly. The game room is very interesting with pool table and ping pong table.

            Nice quiet location, tucked away even though it is close to 75. Nice grounds, the management staff and maintenance are friendly are quick to resolve issues. No pest issues and nice neighbors. There is a train track behind the complex; but it's very quiet, infrequent, and actually fun for the kids to watch. The apartments are clean, but the appliances are old and there are paint drippings everywhere b/c they just re-paint between each tenant. My biggest complaint is how they bill you for non-optional items. It gives tenants the impression of being nickel and dimed. For example, a $4 monthly fee just for sending you your water bill. I mean really? Plus the water/sewage bill is just the complex bill divided by square foot of each apartment. I think they should just raise rents to wrap all those mandatory fees in and advertise "free" pest control, water, sewage, and garbage pickup. It would sure make things simpler and everyone would feel better. I do recommend this place to friends. I just warn them to add $80 on top of the advertised rent. :)

              Great community with nice amenities, landscaping, and special functions. The apartments are spacious and the maintenance department is awesome and quick. The staff is great to work with and always looking out for the best interest of the tenants. I would recommend this community to any one looking for nice place to live.

                  We have been living here for a year. Just renewed our lease for another year. No complaints about this community. The management and staff are exceptional. Very good customer service and great communication with residents. The complex is very clean and peaceful. No issues with pests, great amenities and activities. When issues do arise the management and staff respond quickly to fix it. So grateful to have found this place.

                        Great Apartment in a great neighborhood, they are quick to respond to emails and quick to take care of tickets you submit. We moved to years ago and came back because this apartment complex is one of the best we have lived in.

                          This place is one ! My children adore it here as do staff is unbelieveable! They are not just staff they are residents too and care which never exists in aprtments until this one!! We love it here...I can't say enough how amazing this place is and how happy we are living here. I just feel so lucky and happy to be here every day. My only next stop is owning a home as I have no desire to ever leave here to another place is way too special!

                            Overall, I believe the apartments are very nice but I believe the upcharge in rent each year is not worth the value of the apartment anymore. I think if the apartments wish to keep everyone, there needs to be a lower standard of living cost increase.

                              My experience in this apartment has been nothing but good. I feel very safe walking my dog at night and welcome when I use amenities or visit the office. I love my apartment itself and wish I could spend all day in it. The staff is very kind and I cant really complain about anything.

                                The property is well maintained. Most of the staff and the manager are very nice and helpful. my apartment is just what i needed. Any maintenance issues are handled right on time. The only thing i would say that isnt perfect is one of the staff members "policing" after hours is annoying. however, all in all it is a good place to live.

                                      The best gated community to live in richardson. Community staff are very friendly. all service requests are completed accurately and responds in less than an hour. Apartment monthly events and gatherings are some key events to meet neighbors.

                                            Spacious rooms, I've lived in apartments most of my adult life and it seems like the bedrooms get smaller and smaller each year. I love the layout here, huge rooms (I have a king bed) decent kitchens, good views. It's nice to finally get quick responses too. The staff is really good about trying to respond fast and they have a good online system for the residents. We basically can email them, pay rent and talk to each other all with the online service which is nice. I don't have to wait for them to get in the office to ask a question. Overall really happy with my decision. They have some room for improvement, but really nice people.

                                                Madison at Melrose is a nice quiet community off of Highway 75. There has been a few instances of theft during my stay, which suspects stole mail from the mailboxes. The mail was never returned, however suspect(s) were caught. It's unfortunate that these events happen, but it's an inconvenience for residents to backtrack any mail relating to credit card/banks/personal information/etc. Stolen mail has happened at least 3 times during my stay. Also walls/ceilings are somewhat thin, as I hear my neighbor sing karaoke every Saturday night and every day I hear/feel my upstairs neighbor stomping on their floor/my ceiling as they walk through their apartment.

                                                  Apartments are overpriced, quality of maintenance requests not great resulting in duplicate requests for same repairs. Plumbing is unsanitary, management more concerned about look of the property than upkeep of resident's apartments.
