Resident 2015


We just moved here from out of state and we love our new home at Madison at Melrose. The office staff is so friendly , maintenance takes care of requests quickly and the apartment is just what we were looking for. We couldn't be happier . Thanks Madison at Melrose for making our transition to a new state such a positive experience .

    Overall I enjoy living in these apartments. There are been multiple times the gates (from and back) have been broken and not fixed in a timely manner (e.g. the back gate in December 2014). The timing of the gates closing behind cars has been improved.

      Very friendly staff that continues to meet and address my needs, even after being here for two years. This is truly a home or family community rather than your typical apartment complex. Community based from single, to just married, and families with children. Activities that are provided by the staff are for all age groups that meet the needs of the community of people that live their. Very proud to tell family and friends that I make my home at Madison at Melrose.

        The leasing office staff were very helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable; I was disappointed, however, to learn that the smaller units I was looking for were not available. I called the office a week prior to arriving in Richardson and was told there were units available for $810. Upon, arriving, the leasing office staff told me that none of the units of that size were available and I had no choice but to choose a larger, more expensive apartment. The communication needs to be better so that people can receive accurate when calling to inquiry about the availability in the complex.

          Professional staff in the leasing office, but there is no kids area to play in the community. Pool and gym could be better. They are currently very very small. Gym needs better equipments since they are currently little old. Overall good little apartment community.

            Since the day I moved in the office and maintenance staff have accommodated every request I have made and each time I asked for service, it has been done promptly and courteously and done neatly. During the years I have been here, there have been personnel changes, but the service has been great.

                It was hectic when we Moved in. Apartment was not move in ready. It was filthy. Management made sure to correct those problems ASAP. Great maintenance staff and management! A little overpriced though.

                  Was not able to see apartments in person, so picked apartments based on current reviews. The initial paperwork and application process was a bit cumbersome and the response from the office was a bit slow, as I had to keep following up with the office regarding the application status. When moved in, process was smoother and for any of the initial problems of the apartment, they were handled very quickly by the maintenance team. One thing that has made me hesitant, was that upon moving into the apartment, there was a notice on the door informing the residents that a mugging (attack) of a resident occurred in the community during the weekend of Thanksgiving (2014). Apparently this doesn't happen much/if at all in this community since it's a fairly private community, but it was definitely a concern for not only myself but the other residents. No further information has been given to the residents on the attack, other than that the gates have been re-programmed and that all light fixtures have been fixed. This community is on the "older" side compared to other communities. The walls are somewhat… See More>

                    An all positive experience here. Feels like a true neighborhood here. Best transition for myself. I have lived in three apartments here and always a positive experience. Not all perfect but experience is very good. I went from a house to apartments and I have had the best experience in transition.

                      Nice well designed complex with privacy and quiet. Maintained by friendly helpful staff. Security w electric gates and off busy traffic areas. Nice eclectic age and ethnic mix. As close to having a condominium as I have experienced in an apartment. Good looking range of floor plans available for different size families.

                        Overall it is a great community, very quiet at any given time of the day, very nice neighbors, for the most part average working class. kids friendly for those that have families. Kitchen could use some updates, as well as color on the walls could be better. Wouldnt say over priced but deffinitely could come down some on pricing. Once again, safe and friendly comunity

                          So far so good. Nice environment, clean and quiet. This place is very good since it's very close to my work place, which only takes about 5 minutes. Besides that, it's close to US 75. It's very convenient to go up to north and go down to the shopping center. It's close to UTD as well and the Richardson library, which is also the reason I chose this place to live.

                            My experience at the property has been outstanding. It's a beautiful, quiet, friendly property. The staff is attentive and excellent. We have a porch and yard and our big window looks out onto mature trees. It's very quiet and the neighbors are so nice. My son and I never want to move again!

                              I am so happy we chose Madison at Melrose for our new home in Texas. The office staff is so friendly and professional. Working with them made our move from out of state so much easier . Our apartment is exactly what we were looking for , our neighbors are friendly and its quiet and peaceful. The landscaping is also beautiful. I love coming home to see all of the trees which are such a pretty color this time of year.

                                I've had a good experience living here. My husband and I sold our home and had not lived in an apartment for over 23 years. Scary transition. But our apartment is very spacious and it's wonderful to have a crew of people to take care of landscaping and problems in your home. We've saved a ton of money but more importantly have time to spend with eachother and travel now that we don't have a mortgage. Enjoy the lifestyle and the office and maintenance personnel have been a pleasure to work with.

                                  So far I have had a pretty good experience at Madison at Melrose. I had some plumbing issues at first but they got everything taken care of. It's quiet and my neighbors rarely make any noise. The apartments are clean. My friends usually have no trouble finding a parking spot either. The location is great for me. It's right by 75 but it doesn't seem like it. You can hear some road noise but not much. Overall it is a nice tucked away complex that is close to a lot of places. If you are a student at UTD it is only a mile or so down the road from the campus too.

                                    The staff has been very friendly and helpful. Things are taken care of in an appropriate amount of time. The quality of the complex has never waivered and i am never embarrassed to have people visit. The gates have been frustrating at time though. I live by the back gate and when it isnt working, it can be noisy. But, it hasnt never taken long to have it fixed. I do feel that there are a lot of issues with the front gates though.

                                        Just moving into these apartments. The staff has made is so pleasant and easy for us to apply and move in. I couldn't see an apartment before applying because they didn't have anything for us to see, but the apartment is exactly what I was hoping for. I hope the whole time we live here is like this because so far, we are so excited about moving in. Really nice people around us, our neighbors have already said hello and welcomed us in and the area seems really quiet.

                                            I thought that pasting an excerpt of an email I sent the our apartment manager would say everything that someone considering moving here might want to know about how life is at the Madison at Melrose Apartments: "I wanted to extend our thanks for the sweet thank you note and the wonderfully delicious cookies we found on our door last night. We are so pleased with our new air conditioning system, our new refrigerator, and all the hard work and dedication you and your team have put forth into resolving the maintenance issues we have faced over this past summer and recently. We are so happy Juan has returned, he is a wonderful addition to your team. He manages to fix things quickly and efficiently and it is a sheer pleasure to see him back. As well, I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is to stop by the office or to call in and speak with your pleasant, professional support staff. Jenny is so sweet and nice. She's always there to lend a hand and get things done. And Lindsey has quickly shown that she is right alongside Jenny with her sweet… See More>

                                              After living here as long as I have, I'm Thankful I found this complex. The RISD is fantastic and my daughter loves the school, as do I. It seems like there's a lot of changes going on, but so far so good. They wash the breezeway so they are clean, gates were open for awhile so they replaced them, well lit area and I feel safe and comfortable. I've been here as long as I have because I enjoy consistency and I get that with the staff. I enjoy the ladies in the office and hope I can finish out my daughters schooling here before finding a home of our own one day. Duly recommended.

                                                We have lived her for about three years now and we've really enjoyed it. It's close to the highway and many restaurants. We have quiet neighbors and clean grounds. Emergency maintenance can be a little slow, but normal maintenance is fairly quick. The office staff is great and personable. We've always loved Jenny! The pool and hot tub are quite relaxing. There are quite a few families that live here, but we've never had a problem with unruly kids or anything like that. Overall, it's been an enjoyable time here!

The complex is not visible from the highway and there is only one gate to enter the premises through, making Madison at Melrose feel very exclusive. Overall Madison at Melrose will exceed all your expectations.
