This has been a pleasant place to live. We moved from a nearby apartment complex because we wanted a bigger kitchen, more natural light, and fewer bugs, and Founders Village has delivered on all three. The only thing I really wish they had was a bigger… See More

It's a beautiful community. The apartments are very nice. It's a nice quiet neighborhood. The only problems are the plumbing is terrible and the extra fees that get tacked onto your rent can cost you about 150.00 to 200.00 extra a month.

Overall, it's not a bad place to live. There is no soundproofing between units, though. I hear one neighbor's dog barking, another neighbor's TV. If you're looking for quiet, look elsewhere. The location is decent, but traffic is a headache (and getting worse because of new… See More

Thanks for taking the time to leave this detailed and insightful review. We are disappointed that our staff missed the mark with you and did not fully meet your needs to your satisfaction. We are glad that you enjoyed the amenities and our efficient maintenance staff but are disheartened by your impression of our management as our team aims to accommodate all of our residents fairly and consistently. We understand your frustration with the harsh weather and that you feel frustrated with your move out charges so we are more than willing to provide any clarity you may need regarding those charges. We do appreciate feedback from our residents because it helps us learn how to accommodate everyone that lives in this community so feel free to call or come to our office to speak with us about any lingering concerns you may still have. Talk to you soon.
