I have lived in numerous apartment buildings in my life and Fairmont was by far the worst. The management is very rude and sometimes completely unreceptive. They always act like you're inconveniencing them to do ANYTHING. The office is poorly run, making it very hard to receive packages because they will close at random times. I had a huge problem with mice. I have a very clean apartment so I was shocked. Multiple times finding dead mice caught in traps around my place and management didn't seem startled(I got the feeling this is a normal occurrence for this building). They didn't want to remove them and were very slow on setting up extermination. I doubt they ever would have, if I wasn't constantly asking for an update on how they were fixing this huge problem. I have never had to deal with pest control before and hope I never have to again. Living in this apartment made my skin crawl!!!
the realtors that work in sending you emails after emails and asking every hour to come in and take a tour , then fill an application out...all while having no clue about their company's own income requirements, as I was told 5 different answers about section 8 , and that one must make 3x the rent amount each month. Outrageous demands.
-Upon move-in, they completely clean the apartment. They deep clean carpets or, in my case, install brand new plank floors. They resurfaced the kitchen counters and repainted the kitchen cabinets. They also painted the walls of the entire apartment. My unit was spotless when I first walked in.
-(Most) units have lots of windows. My 700 sq ft 1 bedroom unit has 7 windows. They are good size windows too.
-The building is so quiet. I rarely hear my neighbors on my floor, above me, or below me.
-5 minute walk to Whole Foods and dozens of restaurants.
-Secure private parking garage (limited spaces- around 30 I think). Parking is WORTH IT if you have a car. Sometimes is can be difficult to find a spot on the street.
-The leasing office responds to emails quickly (usually the same day) and the maintenance work orders are quickly attended to.
-No central air/heat. This is common is old buildings but it is something to consider. The window AC units work well. The heating, however, is a problem for me. The apartment has old electric baseboard heating. It's either ON or OFF for these things. Makes it really problematic in the winter when you're just trying to keep a comfortable temperature. It gets super hot, then you turn it off and it gets cold really quick. Space heaters work better, honestly.
-Thin doors. My unit's front door is so thin it just feels like a piece of paper between me and the hallway. No a huge problem though, considering i never hear my neighbors. I guess the thick walls make up for it.
-The BATHROOMS. Yikes. There are cracks in the wall tiles, concerning stains on the floor around the toilet, other weird stains
-leasing office is around the block
-road noisy during the day. quiet at night.
The location is good, I love it. It's close to Straubs, Whole Foods and a lot of restaurants, bars, bike shop, local grocery and other stores and the chess hall of fame.
The apartment is in a very nice location, close to straubs, whole foods and a lot of restaurants and bars. Also the leasing people are very nice and helpful.
