I have had an excellent experience with staff. If I ever have a problem they respond quickly. I like that we can send service requests online. The request are usually completed on the same day they are made.

    It was rocky at first but it has gotten more comfortable. I'm starting to get use to the noise. It's no one's fault actually it's just a busy location. The staff has always been considerate of my problems and are always going above and beyond to help me with those problems and tht part I truly appreciate

      The Office Staff is always pleasant to me and any concerns I have they address them as well as maintenance. I just moved in so far so good. If someone is in need of a place, I would recommend The Oliver for the price.

          Nice and respectful staff, beautiful spacious apartments, close to everything downtown. Neighbors may be rambunctious at times but still a beautiful, affordable place to stay. Definitely will be renewing my lease when time comes.

            Everything has been great except for upstairs neighbors. They are loud 24/7 whether that's children running, "sexual" sounds constantly at all hours, banging, heavy things dropping on the floor. I don't complain about neighbors because I have been through this before and nothing is ever done about it, no eviction no nothing. Other than that, I love my apartment at The Oliver.

                This is a great community to live in. Everyone keeps to themselves. The only issue I have is over the weekends people don't clean up behind themselves. The stairways and hallways are a mess. Other than that the train will be the only thing you hear most of the time.

                  The worst place to live!!!! Almost every night or 3am in the morning people are pulling up blasting music. Ridiculous I have never lived someone where like this. Trash left just anywhere. Place is a real dump

                    Leasing staff is very involved and easily accessible. Upgraded amenities and quiet area for the most part. Maintenance team is responsive most times. Be sure to get a ring camera or have packages delivered to the mail room.

                      Love my apartment. Love Tarmecia and maintenance. Neighbors make my living experience horrible and rats are intolerable. I've never lived somewhere where it's ok to bang over my head all hours of the night and nothing happens to resident.

                          It's been a good experience. I just wished some of the other residents took pride into living here. It's crops to leave trash and fluid everywhere and that isn't fair to the people who come in and clean Monday-Friday. Rarely had any issues here.

                                      I love living here. I never had any issues with my neighbors or with the office staff. Maintenance is extremely responsive and takes no time to complete a work order. It wasn't until recently that I have been having issues with the break ins and I'm just tired of all the trash around the perimeter of the parking lot in the wooded area and I'm sick of getting on the elevator in my building and seeing dog and human piss and feces on the floor or spit on the buttons. As soon as the elevator is cleaned, same day at a later time it is completely filthy. The respect that people have for where they live is non existent at this community now.

                                            I enjoy living here because It is very quiet and the maintenance team always there to help with any issues that you may have with your apartment. I enjoy that the apartment has a community update for us to check things out and see what other residents may have to say. The least thing that I like is that some people leave certain areas dirty and won't clean up after themselves. Also, people should have strict access to the building if they don't have a key.

                                              Homeless/Unsafe

                                              Homeless are camped out in tents across the street and under the bridge. On several occasions, I have seen homeless leaving the building and heading back to their tents. Now WHY and HOW if the building is supposed to be secure??? Winter time, I'm sure it will get worse. These buildings get worse and worse everyday. Sad because this would definitely would not be tolerated in ''other'' neighborhoods.

                                                  The area is calm for the most part. I haven't had problems with my neighbors. In the two years I been here, I haven't seen any pest or roaches which is a great thing. I love it here so far. It's great.
