In general, in my daily living, I am very satisfied with the office staff and maintenance team responses. However, during the moving in process from one apartment to another, apparently, there is not enough turn around time in between moving out and moving in... or staff is over-worked. There is no reason why my new unit was not fully functional from day one when I moved in. Having a soft floor with high out-gassing, a dysfunctional kitchen sink and dish-washer, plus a plugged tub: these are MAJOR issues. My fees and rent were all paid in full on time. Why is it that the work was not completed on time? Another week was required to get the unit up to standard. Management suspected this, and should have been allowed to factor this in to my move in process. Instead, my family and I were inconvenienced and very stressed by these maintenance issues during an already stressful time. A family cannot function well in a new apartment over the weekend with no sink, tub, or dishwasher use while being gassed-out from a newly varnished floor. I am not satisfied with the move-in from our previous apartment at the Albemarle. I read of the Avalon Move-In 100% satisfaction guarantee : where is it?
Although the building managers give the impression of really trying to help the maintenance team has shown on numerous occasions their lack of professionalism, care and competence.
Staff of Avalon The Albemarle are incredibly friendly, helpful and accessible. They do everything needed to make your move-in go as smoothly as possible. Prices at Avalon are somewhat expensive, especially given that it's an older building, but you get very spacious apartments and a great location in return.
Avalon the Albemarle is a very nice community and centrally located to the metro station, grocery store, and other local stores and restaurants. The building is well kept, staff is friendly, and you get good apartment value for your rent.
