      Everything that everyone else said is true. this place is terrible. the old management that everyone including me hated moved to who knows where and the management is just as bad. they yell at each other in there stairwell constantly, they have favorite residents, they don't follow the rules. This place is a ---- hole. everyone is so loud, especially the children. There are broken beer bottles everywhere and no one cleans up. Outside is loud as ---- with children screaming and old men that walk around smoking there ciggarettes. The new management is some of the most racist stuck people ever.

        A Lot of kids, very noisy, stares from neighbors, bad maintenance, mold issues everywhere, cheap carpet and paints, rude managers, dead rat kind of smell in the kitchen when I first moved in, very dirty used oven that has old dough everywhere (I never used the oven cause it was really gross), broken drawers and windows, smoking neighbors. Was not happy living there. It was kinda cheap. And you get what you get for the price, I guess. Find somewhere else.

          Children run free and scream everywhere, this place is not quiet. The "managers" only take care of the landscaping around their building the courtyard is a sad waste-land that they haven't even raked in months, yet they just fertilized their lawn. I really wish I could get in touch with the owners.

            Management is a piece of ----. They walk around smoking even with children playing all around and don't even give you a simple smile. They have "office hours" but there is always a sticky note on the door that says "Be back soon." and they never come back? I try to reload my laundry card and have to constantly go back to see if they're there. If you're lucky, they'll be on their porch (smoking of course) and can help you. If you ask them to look/fix something in your apartment, they never get back to you. I see them maybe once or twice a week picking up garbage kids throw around. If you want a peaceful and quiet place to live, look somewhere else. Sure they have a "job" and say they have the right to 2 15 minute breaks.. But where are they most of the time? If you look closely through the reviews, there is some 5 star ones. But with the comments on all the 1 star ones, there was a comment made on about each on the date 8/29/08. Wow way to defend yourselves managers! Maybe if there was better maintenance here, then you wouldn't… See More>

              I cannot stand this place. There's children running up and down the stairways all the time! I can never get a quiet moment here! The management is horrible! Manager is never in her office when she should be, she's rude to everyone, I can never put money on my wash card because she's never in the office! Do yourself a favor and never live here! The owner is an idiot for allowing this place to go to such ----.

                So I have come to the conclusion that these two landlords are rats. They are sneaky and usually have secret agendas. I don't doubt they raise rent just because they feel like it. They are rude and do not replace broken appliances and if they do it's used, which is very unsanitary to me. Beware. This awful complex charges 1200 for a two-bedroom, and the manger is never in the office nor do they answer their phone.

                  Worst apartments EVER! I came across these reviews while searching for an apartment in Kirkland. I lived here about 8 years ago and they were horrible. When I first moved in the manager was a very nice older lady. She left a few months later and was replaced with slum lords. The office was never open and maintenance was nonexistent. My unit was on the bottom floor and always had a 'damp' feel to it. I believe I had a plumbing leak in the bathroom that caused mold on the living room wall. It was a health hazard that was never attended to bc management was too busy doing something other than their job. When I left they tried to charge me for replacing the carpet. Not my fault that the cheapest carpet was installed. I had to hammer nails down that were loose. I am so glad I left this place and sorry to hear that it hasn't been better in recent years.

                    Bad apartments i pay $1,080 for a 2 bedroom and - bathroom and they are both small. For me neighbors are not noisy because the loudness comes from my apartment i am sorry to say that but i have 4 kids my neighbors now that its not easy with 4 kids so they understood . The manager has a rule of no smoking but she smokes she also has a rule of no pets allowed and they have a dog oh and she told everyone that you could not have many stuff in your porch but guess what she has stuff in her porch for her daughter the playground is poor cuz there is no playground they took both playgrounds done . Oh and it takes weeks for them to come and fixe your apartment like our apartment has mold and is bad for our kids so i dont recommend these apartments to anyone trust me.

                      this is probably the worst place i have ever lived at. Not only are the apartments themselves horrible but the management is nothing to brag about either. The apartments are like any other low income housing. your appliances will crap out several times a year, nothing else seemed to hold up either. there were cracks in my walls. i don't know if it was a bad paint job or if the construction is just very poor. they rent was raised three times in one year. I'm pretty sure the manager would just come up with random fees. i never received rent receipts, thank god i kept my money order stubs! overall the management seem to have a street attitude about them, not professional at all. there are loud kids always running around and blocking key areas; laundry, parking, MY APARTMENT!!! not recommended for anyone old who just wants a little peace and quiet. or young, chances are you will get taken advantage of, like most cases in this situation. LOW INCOME LIVING = 100% non-professional management. unless you get lucky and find an outstanding facility. its like they have their own world with their own rules. Also, don't expect a… See More>

                        Where do I start. I have lived in many apts in my lifetime & this place takes the cake. When I first moved in, it seemed fine. I had some major issues with my apt and they were usually taken care of in a timely fashion. It seems like things were fixed well, as long as the managment didn't touch it. Just the maintenance help. I noticed when the actual manager came in to fix problems they always got worse. Not to mention he always had 2 return because he screwed something up. As far as the "office manager" she is a complete joke. She is never in the office & comes into work when she feels like it. I have seen her literally harass people. Especially if you are white. She will find some way 2 get you kicked out of her complex. I think she likes renting apts 2 people who can't speak english very well. She takes total advantage of it. Especially with rent increases or any type of monies exchanged. I've also noticed since her children are getting older, she is letting them run around more freely. I have noticed her child picking on… See More>

                            Idk what all these people are talking about. But I have been here for awhile and have had nothing but nice things from the managment, they are hard working people. Always taking care of things needing to be fixed and taking care of. And every morning cleaning up the grounds because people are so disrespectful and throw there garbage every we're and don't care and the management makes sure everything looks good. Yes it's old but considering that your not going to find any were cheaper and more takin care of by hard working people. Usually the people on here that say negative things are people being evicted, and are upset about it. Despite those people and others who show lack of consideration for the grounds and the apartment they live in the managment always gets back to you when you need something. Like I said I hav been here for awhile and u can c for yourself if u visit. And they are nothing but nice. People can say what they want but the fact is the managment has been here this long for being good at what they do. And the ones saying nasty things… See More>

                              These apartments are horrible, mostly due to management. It's true this place is old, you can hear people outside, the neighbors above & next door to you... But I've learned to deal with apartment life in that aspect. The truth of the matter is, this place would be MUCH better with a different management team. The office is never open - You're lucky if they see you from their back porch and someone comes over to help. You have to pay for laundry with a funky card (like a pre-paid laundry card) but you can only fill it in the office - which means often having to wait hours for someone to go to the office. I've left messages at 10am asking for her to call when she's back in the office so I can load the card, she calls 5 min before the office closed at 6pm. They are constantly closing the office for random days, ealry at times, there is no actual schedule. When asking for a repair to be done, I'm told it's normal for a dishwasher to not drain all the way and collect mildew at the bottom - and that the machine was new… See More>

                                I would never recommend this place to anyone, young or the elderly. The management suck, they are never available in the office, they are usually always in their apartment doing whatever the hell they do. They ate rude, no customer service at all. Unwelcoming, and js ridiculous. I'm so glad I no longer love there. I believe the manager use to be better until this lady became the landlord, she's a complete piece of work, lazy as fck.

                                  these apartments are too old,,i would never recommend this place to anyone, specially if you have babies or children, there is MOLD everywhere, if yo live on the third floor prepare yourself to have water inside the apt when it rains, there is lead in the paint and i'm about to test the water too, to see if there is also lead in the water since the pipes must be pretty old. these whole place should be reconstructed, the managers are so bad that they don't fix anything, these apartments are in a really bad condition and i can't understand why they have not got reconstructed, many of the people living here have children and i know more than 3 children that have got sick with asthma and many other diseases.

                                    The manager is rude and I don't think she even knows how to run a complex. They are racist! Not many white people live here, and the ones that do are treated like crap. Maintenance will happen the first month, but after that forget anything getting done. It's almost impossible to get a hold of the manager during business hours or even the emergency line. They gossip to their favorite tenants about everything that is going on. Residents here are disrespectful, and everybody likes to stare. Im moving in the next few months and won't look back! They bought a cheap playground that is already half destroyed. Oh, and if you use their laundry room, you are most likely to either get ripped off or some sort of stains on your clothes. 90% of the time the dryers have ink or something along with screws, rocks and other crap. They ignore your noise complaints and you can hear every single time somebody goes up and down the stairs. As for parking, there is supposed to be one car in front of your building per resident, and other vehicles are parked across from the building. That doesn't happen, and they won't… See More>

                                        First of all no privacy at all, the neighbors (including the management!) love to gossip. The apartments are so tiny and close you can hear the neighbors, every night. A crappy play ground,They cut most of the trees down. Its just bad management, the managers are horrible and are rude racist, who like to snoop through the tenants life. Its as if the managers dont take their job seriously they are just on a power trip. Not only that but they stopped leasing to tenants of color, only caucasian tenants have been moving in. I am in no way racist but these new tenants are all junkies. Instead of allowing legal immigrants the managers allow only white people, once the was talking about installing a pool, but the managers daughter made a comment saying " no because the -------- will pee in the pool. If you managers good side on the other hand she will let you have dogs without paying a ridiculous fee and she will let you blast your music at 3 am. Who lets these people be managers? They accuse you of smoking pot, when you are just smoking a cigarette. YOU WIll have no privacy. and the rent is ridiculous. take it from… See More>

                                            FOR THE PRICE YOU PAY HERE YOU CAN LIVE AT A BETTER PLACE WITH A POOL. Over priced with only one admendity = free water and washer and dryer hook ups. There's a busted up unusable basketball hoop and a LITTLE play area for tots in the dirt bowl they constantly mow. The Buildings are too close and outdated. (old chandleirs, nappy carpets, water pipes need to be replaced, ect...) Management is unprofessional. (enters your units without notice, then runs without explaination after being caught; gossips with other tenants uncaringly out in the open about other tenants, blasts music really loud disrespecting other tenants; ect...)

                                                To all of the angry renters at this apartment complex. You must call HUD..They are quick to contact the owners. I know a past tentant who called, filed, and won. HUD is there for people like us who feel we have no where to turn, when the management is not doing their job. Please, have photos, letters, policies, proof of the rules not being enforced. Have evidence. You have rights!!!!!!You can find HUD on the web, and they will walk you step by step. Good Luck.
