My experiences haven't been the best here, looking forward to moving. I think their management is bad, and maintenance isn't great. Also their AC units are right smack in be middle of the living room and they are so loud you have to blast your tv to hear it, or sufffer in the heat to hear your movie. The upstairs never get cold or warm, it's like the AC can't reach the upstairs.
I thought the staff was largely excellent. They remembered me by name, made sure to greet me, and were always helpful. On the other hand, the units were aging and it was beginning to show. I could hear what I thought were squirrels walking around inside the ceiling. There was black mold or water damage in the grain of the parque flooring in several areas. The new appliances were a nice touch.
I loved my actual apartment once I am inside and I close the door. Things on the other side of my door however are frustrating. The parking for residents works only if you have one vehicle per household. If you have more than one it can be a hassle. The grounds are not maintained. Quick fix patch jobs are used inside and outside apartment units rather than truly fixing problems.
