Do not be fooled by this place. The location is fantastic and the units are spacious, and at first glance, everything seems updated and well-maintained. Management seems friendly and approachable during the application process, but as soon as you move in, everything changes.
Management is extraordinarily lazy; Britt in particular treats you like an inconvenience if an issue arises, and she will try anything and everything to avoid putting a work order in. We had multiple appliances break during our tenancy here, and each time she would ask condescending questions about why it wasn't working, implying that it was our fault and that we were too stupid to operate basic household appliances. And just wait until you move out; she tried getting us to pay for issues that had been carried over from the previous tenant and that she did nothing to address while we lived here. Overall, just an incredibly unpleasant person to deal with.
When it comes to common areas, they are almost never cleaned or maintained. The garage reeks of trash, which frequently spreads to the halls and permeates the entire building. The pool is closed more often than it is open, due to being poorly maintained, but management will again send out condescending text messages blaming residents for breaking it. Last month a large branch broke off of one of the trees during a storm, and it took them two weeks to dispose of it.
I cannot recommend renting an apartment at Willow Greens, especially for how much they charge. Hopefully the new owners fire the current management and hire someone who is competent and doesn't treat their tenants like trash.
Here is an honest, nothing-to-gain review of this property. I should know, I lived there. So if I could spare someone the mistake of moving there, I will have done my job.
This place could be really great. It's in a good location, smack dab in Edina, close to shopping, easy access to freeways, etc. The neighborhood is great, the street it's on...so-so. All apartments, some of them ok, some of them rather janky.
The property consists of two buildings..10 apts each. All are decent sized, most with balconies. There is also underground, heated parking which is nice in the winter.
Now for the nuts and bolts and the reasons for my rating...
The worst thing about this place are the caretakers. Actually, I'll go beyond that and say, really, it's the owners, because they're the ones that employ the caretakers. But they're in another state, so there's pretty much no accountability for them. I don't know if they ever come to check up on their property, but I doubt it because I have to believe if they did things wouldn't be the way they are. The place is dumpy and dirty most of the time. It was hardly ever cleaned. Weeks...even months....could go by before they ever picked up a vacuum cleaner or, god forbid, a mop. If you like your home to look, smell and feel dirty...if you like stuff laying on the floor in the lobbies, stairs and hallways, by all means, this is the place. But if you like the company you fork over your money to every month to at least act like you matter, this ain't it. I could go into detail about everything I saw there, but that would just take too much time. Just trust me on this...they're L..A..Z..Y!!!!! And nobody cares. Pool area messy, pool closed all the time, probably from lack of diligent upkeep, windows never cleaned outside, place needs painting. Literally peeling in places.
Wish I could be more positive, but just can't. The place is a huge disappointment. You can do better.
a nice secluded apartment building in Edina Minnesota. Edina is a little more upper class and has more money to spend basically. so the entire town is a little more updated everything's a little more modern . behind the swimming pool there is a golf course and that is a huge Plus. also the seclusion of the outdoor grill and tables and stuff like that make this property Worthy
