Location - great Price - decent Staff - terrible Maintenance - good In general it has been okay. Communication is especially poor from getting the tour timings mixed up, to being very slow to reply emails and when they do it was never nice nor polite nor informative. This behavior continued through the move and post-move, with me having to be proactive about everything. The leasing office staff and security are all equally rude (except for Tiffany, she's great!) and don't really care for the tenants, which is sad given that the apartments are decent and the location is good. The apartment unit itself had a few issues like not being thoroughly cleaned and few things that needed to be fixed but it was easy to create maintenance requests and the response was quick.

After making an appointment to view an apartment, I was kept waiting over 20 minutes, the person who I was due to meet wasnt there anyway, and I never heard back from the woman I spoke to. Poor customer service that lived up to the poor reviews I read

High price is what keeps it from being an excelent rating. Regarless of market prices, this place is now 10+ yrs old.

Overall a good place to call home. Welcoming of my family and pup! Great location. Apartments are fairly small but this does seem like a good value in this neighborhood and the amenities the space offers.
