I lived here 5 years ago for 2 years. I was just speaking to a friend about my time spent here, and thought I should leave a review of my experiences. I was a student in my junior and senior years, with the building I most frequented very close to Lindsay Oaks. Firstly, let me state that I'm not very hard to please. I worked and went to school within a 5 minute walk of of Lindsay Oaks, while maintaining an active social/bar life. tl;dr i, didn't spend a huge amount of time inside of my apartment compared to what I do now. I'll start with a pros and cons, and dive deeper into it. -- Pros: + Location + Friendly Neighbors --- and thats all i've got. please notice how neither of these is influenced by anything other than this building purely existing where it currently resides. Cons: --- note: Asterisk points are referenced following the list of Cons. The formatting on this website sucks, so you'll have to bare with me. The first CAPS LOCKED bullet point directly influences everything following it. i wouldn't list the pest cons if they were quickly dealt with, or dealt with at all, because these kinds of things do happen. ANYWAY! - CONS: SKILES & ASSOCIATES REAL ESTATE (CON)Rats (never addressed) - (CON)Bed Bugs (never addressed) (CON)Surprise witch-hunting fees* (CON)Surprise non-witch-hunting fees** (CON)Constant water shut-off (out of their control to be fair) (CON)Paper-thin walls . *I was approached by maintenance one day asking if i had any leaking water. I told them, naively thinking they were looking to fix something, that my toilet runs occasionally. The following week I was slapped with a ~$100 fine because the allocated water bill was much higher than normal. This happened during the previously mentioned water shut-off periods. Bill went back to normal, toilet remained running ----------------------------------------------------------- ** I informed them of my intention to move-out 59 days ahead of time instead of 60. $140 reletting fee. Sure, I was contractually in the wrong here, but it just seemed petty and they, not once, showed my apartment to potential tenants. I would assume this was due to the numerous rat traps I had laid out. In closing I will say: A V O I D. I will also say avoid ANY Skiles managed property. They take the term "slumlord" to a whole new level. If you do decide to rent from them, make sure everything you request is done so through certified mail. I met with the Texas State attorney consultant for students, or whatever, numerous times and she had nothing but disgust for their business practices.
