Resident 2008

Resident

Have been here for one year. I would not be leaving for the fact that I bought a house. Complex is quiet and clean. The staff is quick to respond to problems if you have any, and treat people with the utmost respect. I would highly recommend this complex to anyone.

    I read this last review and I must totally disagree, of course everyone is subject to their opinion. I think this complex is kept up well and from living in many different apts in the past I have a good comparison. As far as the staff they are great and have always treated me with respect and kindness whenever I come in whether I have a problem or just to say hello. I defiantly recommend this apt complex to anyone looking for nice and affordable apts.

      After I have lived her awhile

      Now that I have lived here for almost a year I have come to really appreciate this apartment complex. The staff is always, and I do mean always friendly and courteous. The maintenance people are quick and efficient as well as very well manored. I can not say enough about how well the grounds and pool is kept up. The pool is opened early and stays open late into the season. The gas grills stay open all year round so that you can always cook steaks and burgers at anytime during any season. I agree that they do tow cars that are not properly marked but that only makes sure that residents have parking and that broken down cars are not left to rot there. All and all I do not have any problem with highly recommending this comunity for people to live. :)

        Sterling Glen Beware of where you park You will be towed!!!!

        The staff at Sterling Glen are nice & the Apartments are ok. Definitely not worth the price. The parking at the apartment complex is ridiculous. If you do not have a parking pass displayed on your vehicle, you will be towed. Sometimes it is impossible to find a "visitor" space to park your vehicle & they have been poorly marked. I have never lived in a place that you have to be so concerned about where you park. UGGGGGH!!!

            My apartment (from an actual resident)

            I wanted to give anyone who reads these reviews an update. I have lived here for almost a year now and cant say enough about the service we get from the leasing staff, the maintence staff and all the nice people we have met while we have been here. This is truly an outstanding community. The pool opens early in the season and stays open late in the season. The gas grills are open year round for you to use, the staff knows everyone by name and are so courteous and caring of their residents. This is truly a great place to live. I do not know what is wrong with the people who have written bad reviews about the Sterling Glen apartments but I can highly recommend this apaerment complex to anyone who is looking for an apartment. I live in a 3 bedroom apartment with a loft and I have never lived in such a nice apartment before. Friends who come to visit us always complement us on our apartment. The spiral staircase to the loft is totally awesome and the carpet and colored counter tops are great! There is a television/DVD/radio in the kitchen and a ceiling fan… See More>

              Great Community, Maintenance and property.

              I absolutely love Sterling Glen. Since we have moved in, the staff has been nothing but courteous and accomidating to every request. The big test for me was if something large broke down, like an appliance or A/C unit. Needless to say, our A/C stopped working on a extrelemly hot day, and the maintenance staff had it back up and running within an hour. Every request has been handled that well, even the smallest of tasks like replacing a hinge on a cabinet. If you want to live in a great community with owners that actually care about their tennants and property, I would suggest giving this place a try.

                Apartment Living

                This is a great community - very kid and pet friendly! I've read several negative postings and feel compelled to write my observation. Seven months ago we moved out of our house into a 3-bedroom apartment. We have enjoyed our space and neighbors. Over the pasts 25 years I've owned homes and lived in apartments, so we looked carefully before settling here and are very happy we did. I chose Sterling because of the great location, friendly staff, and pretty grounds. We had visited a few times prior to making the move and we're pleased to say we've found no surprises since we moved in. Yes, living in an apartment can have it's issues; such as parking and some noise and other situations that will come up, but there have been no surprises - the lease was explained and all complex rules before signing.

                  I lived at Sterling Glen apt's for 2 years, and found it to be a great place to live. The staff was friendly whenever I needed anything from them. The units where clean and spacious. Unlike most area comunnities the pool season and hours of operation where much better that any other around. They also do parties for he residents that most places never do ( or is not nearly as good ) I have read some of the reviews from other people and maybe they need to understand that they signed the lease and agreed to all of the commuminty rules. Most people have to understand that rules are put into place to help not to harm. If your car was towed and you knew that you were suppose to have the pass on it and didn't then it is only that person's fault. You can not blame other people for your own mistakes.

                    FAR FROM LUXURY

                    THIS IS THE WORST APT I HAVE EVER LIVED IN..STAY AWAY! DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY! THERE WERE CIGARETTE BURN MARKS ALL OVER THE CARPET AT MOVE IN, SMELLED LIKE SMOKE AND MARIJUANA..TUB WAS DISGUSTING, STAIRCASE IS STARTING TO DETACH FROM LOFT, KITCHEN CABINETS ARE SO OLD AND DIRTY THAT I DONT EVEN WANT TO PUT MY STUFF IN THEM, PARKING IS TERRIBLE, KITCHEN COUNTERTOP HAS CRACKS IN IT..Terrible..if you are looking for luxury, definitely stay away from here..this place is like the projects

                      Not what it seems....

                      The staff was welcoming and helpful at first! Parking is ridiculous at times. If someone comes to visit you, they must park 300 yards away from our apartment just so they won t get towed . Residents must have a parking tag on the rear view mirror to be identified. If this tag .which is technically illegal to have on a car mirror .is not properly displayed, YOUR CAR WILL BE TOWED WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED/EXCEPTIONS! I woke up one morning, after being a resident at Sterling Glenn for 4 months and always parking in the same area, with my car nowhere to be found .FYI: my car is a bright color and very noticeable!!!! Even though your license number, model, and type of car is registered at the main office, this does not play a hand in being issued a warning before towing NOR getting your car back without a $125.00 charge. (In addition, I have learned by other residents it depends on who you are for what your fee is! ummmmm) With NO ONE to take me to my… See More>

                        Would not recommend to friends or relatives. The location is not convenient. The hull street area between the 288 highway and the Alta Sterling apartments is heavily congested with traffic on a daily basis. When traveling on hull street to and from the Alta Sterling Apartments (formerly known as Sterling Glen Apartments)to the 288 Highway, it takes at least 10-15 minutes to get to the 288 highway and longer during the morning and evening rush hours. This should be considered when traveling to and from work in the mornings and evenings.<br><br>The late fees are unreasonably high. They charge an arm and a leg for routine clean-ups when you move out. The community offer garage rentals for about 110 a month, but you must give them a month's notice when you decide to end the garage rental. The garages has spiders (personally, I have seen a black widow spider in one of the garages) and the management does not offer extermination on a regular basis, so you must request it as needed. <br><br>The Property Manager, Kristy, of the Alta Sterling Apartments (formerly known as Sterling Glen Apartments)is a very rude and arrogant person and has made our stay at Sterling… See More>

                          Least accomadating apartments I have ever lived in!!

                          They lie outright when describing their property. They claim they have trailer parking, but unless your trailer is a 10-15 foot model there is no room to back it in to the designated spots. They won't fix maintenance problems when you report them, and the noise from apartments above AND BELOW you is absolutely ridiculous. The pipes, air conditioners, and laundry hookups make more noise than we can stand. I can tell not only when my neighbors do laundry, but how much change was in their pockets and what type of clothes they are washing. Bugs and lizards will share your home with you, and the trash piles up every weekend because the only dumpster is eternally full. This place stinks, literally. My Fiancé and I will be leaving as soon as possible, and that is going to cost $3000 just to break the last two months off of our overpriced rental contract. You definitely don’t get anywhere near what you pay for, look anywhere else.… See More>

                            Sterling Glen = ugghhhh

                            I moved here with the idea that I would be getting what I paid for. What a surprise. The place is poorly maintained. There are bugs everywhere and the response from office staff is that all of the apartments in the complex have them. Essentially, one just needs to deal with it. In addition, lizards also find their way inside which apparently, is also typical of most ground floor units in the complex. Expect to hear the pipes pinging in cold weather. This is no small ping but rather loud enough to wake you from a sound sleep. Again, office staff and maintenance say this is a problem in all of the apartments and one just needs to get used to it. In short, they know they have quality problems but really don't care. They do a lot of writing up of reported problems and little solving of them. Parking is horrible if you rent 2/3 bedroom units. Not so bad near buildings housing loft and one bedroom units. <br><br>A positive to the apartments is that the layout of the two bedroom is really roomie and feels bigger than the square footage would lead you to believe.

                                Great community

                                I absolutely love my apartment. My roommate and I have lived in our 2BR 2BA for 5 months now and we couldn't be happier. The apartment was spotless when we moved in and haven't had a problem yet. Our bills are consistently low due to highly efficient units. It's far from noisy, I never park anywhere but in front of my building, even if I come home at 3 AM. There is ample visitor parking, but they may have to walk a bit. Not far though. You have to remember that visitors should walk further than residents b/c they're not paying rent. <br><br>Sterling residents are welcome to use the amenities provided by the subdivision in which it's located, Hampton Park. This includes all of the trails, skating rinks, mini golf, etc. just not the pool. This is fine as Sterling has a pool. <br><br>It is located out there, but if you don't take US 360 and find out other roads, you'll see your commute time cut in half. Easily. The community is located within 5-10 minutes of grocery stores, a Barnes and Noble, Target, Kohl's, one of… See More>

                                  Moving in is easy, moving out is a real problem!

                                  Think twice before you move into these apartments. They are comfortable apartments, but when it comes time to move out you will get quite a surprise. They have a fee for everything. When they´re done with you, you will think you bought the whole apartment, new carpet, new linoleum, and who knows what. The people there a nice, but they have only one thing in mind, money.

                                    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this community but parking became an issue for the residents and visitors. This used to be a park as you come community but at night some residents coming in at 11pm-1am felt they should be able to park directly infront of their building, needless to say they intiated vistor parking spaces and the parking for visitors for my building was infront of the clubhouse, a freaking mile from my building. All in all it´s a wonderful place to live but the commute is a beast. A normal 30 minute commute turns into an hour or more

                                      This apt complex is nice and well kept up. It is a minimum of 45 minutes from Downtown Richmond, and is a very sprawling community. There are no recycling options near here, and the traffic to go towards richmond is a bear anytime after 6:30 am and away from Richmon before 11pm. <br> My antenna was broken off in the parking lot by some neighborhood kids.
