I live at Ellington Farms and have found the new manager Sharon to be very helpful and responds if I call asap. The only problem I have is the place was built very poorly, there is no insulation in the walls and you can hear everything from your neighbors. Overall great place to live. Also, Sharon has to hear all the complaints that is not in her control. I think she is doing a great job and never had any problems with her.
We have a new company and things are looking up at EF; its now the best luxury apartment in town. If you get a chance, stop by the office for a coffee or hot chocolate and a snack! Since the new company took over, things are looking great. The pool is open all year long and has beautiful fountains of water, beautiful pool furniture and a tv! Seriously, come stop by and I assure you that youll fall in love.
The amount of dog waste in the immediate areas of each building, as well as the small dog park, is absolutely horrendous. If you don't walk directly on the sidewalk you have to literally navigate through dozens of piles of feces left by inconsiderate residents. Initially there was a policy that each resident must have their dog's mouth swabbed so that feces not disposed of properly could be tested and fines could be issued--now though there are no repercussions to those who are too lazy to spend ten seconds picking up their animal's waste like a decent neighbor. It's difficult to enjoy walking around because the only thing you see is poop....everywhere. If the manager would actually do something about this, it could be a great place to live. But this issue has been brought up several times by many people, and absolutely nothing has been done and I don't foresee anything ever being done. It's an easy problem to fix, even if it means maintenance picks it up themselves since they refuse to implement DNA testing. I will not be renewing my lease due to the laziness of the residents and the manager.
Ive lived at Ellington Farms for almost 2 years and am very happy. Its hard when youre looking at apartments and want everything youre looking for to be checked off the list. I was fortunate to have this happen here. Also, if I need maintenance, its handled promptly; any other issues I go directly to the manager, Sharon and she sits down and talks about it with me. The grounds are kept up and you never see trash anywhere. Its a smaller complex which I love because it feels more personal. The pool, coffee bar and gym are all great; its like you have it all without having to leave.
The apartments are nice, however when I moved in the carpets were not cleaned, the refrigerator was sticky, my water pressure is very low, and bees nest in and outside the apartment. The pool however is dirty on the regular and the grills are loaded with ants and flys. The leasing office and pool has dead plants and flowers which look pretty bad. People here do not pick up after their dogs, and there's poop everywhere. The property manager Sharon is very rude towards us residents, and talks about other peoples personal issues with other residents. This apartment complex is going down hill!! Its been 3 weeks since the hurricane and the complex is still a disaster!
