I absolutely love my home. The layout and the finishes are fabulous and so cozy. The outside scenery is so comforting and the residents that I have met seem like good people. the manager is also GREAT, she has helped me since day one resolve any issues my apartment has had and has provided excellent customer service. When I have guest come over they are WOWed by my apartment for its large bedrooms, restrooms, living room and kitchen.

5 stars for the 2018 Management team!!! (24 hour Emergency # needs work though)

I lived here in 2009 so when I was returning last year for 18 months of training this is the first place I went! Sadly, the management in April 2017 were not responsive (in multiple ways) so I rented elsewhere. When it came time for me to renew my lease I checked back to the Niche to find out if the new management was any better. I am happy I did because DeDe, Giselle, Jose and the maintenance crew are amazing!!!

Responsive to my needs (moving, military training schedule, absolute need for parking near my rental) they went above and beyond to help. This is not to say they could provide all my wishes, right when I wanted them or even at the time I moved in, but they worked with me and when able they ensured that my needs were met. Specifically, Giselle was able to find close covered parking AND looked into upcoming availability so that I will be able to rent the spot nearest my apartment when the current owner moves out. DeDe also ensured that I got a washer and dryer and had immediately maintenance address concerns noted in my move in inspection worksheet when I turned it in.

Looking at the history and turmoil of the multiple management turnovers in the recent past, it is easy to appreciate why some items in my apartment where sub-par, i.e. the laminate floor issues, bifold closet to washer jerry-rigged with a screw instead of a proper tract... However, maintenance has always been responsive to fixing and making right. Since I moved here in March, I had a leaking refrigerator and hot water tank. These are not brand new apartments, even if they were they would have issues, but is nice to see responsive action once maintenance personnel are made aware. They just need to get the 24 hr Emergency line to actually work.

I am happy to be home!

MILITARY, YOU'RE SERVICE IS NOT APPRECIATED HERE. I just left active duty Marines and planned on staying here one school semester before going to China to see my son born. After 3 months the management decided that
I needed to either sign an additional year long lease or move out with 1 month left. I had to scramble to keep myself off the street, and take care of this while going to school full time and completing a visa for my girlfriend and
Newborn child. My active duty roomate is staying there until the end of December anyway, my presence was not affecting their bottom line. My truck was also stolen here in the apartment complex in broad daylight, be careful around this area folks.
