This cozy little community is wedged between a noisy auto body shop and a busy intersection that always seems to be featuring construction activity of some kind.
In the year and a half I've lived here, I've seen standards in this community slip dramatically. From battling over non-existent parking (while dodging all the cars that are parked illegally in fire lanes) to the gates permanently locked shut, to the mail which frequently fails to reach your doorstep with no notice given (hope you're not receiving any unexpected packages in the office, because management will literally never inform you). There is a "24 hour quiet policy" that in theory means you can be served with a 72 hour eviction notice if someone in your building believes you to be the source of the noise, but in practice actually means the neighbors are banging around on cheap, thin walls where sound carries. For the office side of compliance with the "quiet hours" you can look forward to the soothing sounds of gas powered landscaping equipment right outside your bedroom window on weekend mornings.
Now for the amenities: There's a pool, but it's only open about 2 weeks a year and they seem content to let it remain as a water feature. The gym is pathetic. Parking is abysmal. Trash is strewn all over the community and never gets picked up on time. Dog feces blankets every patch of grass. Internet seems to cut out every time it snows or gets windy.
If the office staff spent the time improving the community as they do serving eviction notices for being 12 hours late with rentr payment and attempting to collect $15 debts, this might be an halfway decent place to live. In fact, serving collection notices is the only thing that gets done in a timely manner here. I still have unfulfilled maintenance requests from last summer.
Instead, they'll just jack up your rent even higher when all your neighbors move out and they're left with vacant units
Maintenance was exceptional! Parking was horrible! Hot tub was always broken! Recent office manager was a joke! Very unprofessional, was a gossip about other tenants and their financial status! Quite embarrassed for the corporate company! Move out was a joke, I spent 4 days cleaning, the apt was spotless better than when I moved in and they still charge ridiculous fees! Was promised a free carpet cleaning, but was denied due to a pcs. Do not rent here you will pay dearly!
The place is nice and clean. Storage/closet and counter space is rather limited. Saturday brunches etc. are a nice touch, but I've never got my award for guessing the Super Bowl score. Also I know it's part of the lease agreement, but charging tenants for cleaning and painting is a joke.
There are many reasons I feel this way. The rent is high the management makes reasons to come into the apartments almost every month to change light bulbs, annual inspection, check fire alarms, change windows and many other reasons. I feel that all of this could be done at once with better scheduling. It is an invasion of my privacy.
cost too much money to get out!
