    Dear Stephanie, I am so disappointed with the customer care that I received at St. Andrews. I have nothing but a bad experience since the moment I moved in on last year. Not only, is it over priced for the service you get but the complex continues to have a change of staff monthly! I have given St Andrews paper work to began my notice of leaving over and over again. My original letter started in May of this year yet I still have not received my deposit. My paperwork has been passed on from person to person and now just on today after calling the office 4 times, I was told that my check was sent to Venturra a week ago yet no one s seems to know where it is! I have had the patience of Job with this complex yet no one seems to care! After turning my keys for over a month, I found out that no one had even closed me out of the apartment! And that the person I closed out with was no longer working there! I have never seen such a mess of an office as 10000 Broadway! So here it is, another weekend and another excuse as to why I haven’t gotten y deposit back. Ps. these people wont event return my phone calls! I am so upset with this complex! I want to phone my lawyer because nothing else seems to be working.

    This has been far the worst experience I have had. I move into a property and it is infested with roaches. I tried to stay and see if they would be gone by treating the apartment. I couldn’t stay there due to the infested apartment. When I moved out within the 30 day trial period now I was told I would be refunded my fees and deposits by the property manager. When I call the off I am told I’m not getting the money back. That is not fair. I had to pay movers a second time which I’m requesting to be paid the money back for the movers that I had to hire to get me out of that apartment. I have been told nothing but lies and jerked around. I have lots of pictures of these roaches. The property manager saw them and immediately knew they were German roaches. The apartment was treated 2 times and seem like they were worse when I went to check on things. I put all my clothes in my car does anyone realize or care to make this right.

    I bet you don’t win any awards this year. You raised the price an everything all across the board. Rent,car port, trash pick up, and water. I’m paying $100.00 more a month for the same apartment than I did on the old lease, and no upgrades were offered. The only why I decided to sign another lease was because I was told I could move into another unit that didn’t have stairs hook up to it when one becomes available. Well guest what, one came available, and my new lease has not started yet, I signed a new lease under the impression that would be changing units when one came, I’m now being told I can’t change units and that I am stuck with lease. Ow trust me I am going to be the biggest pain in ass I can be for the next 13 months.

    my family and I have lived at Estancia at Morning Star for a couple of years now. The management staff has always being great, the maintenance staff is five stars but the current management staff is extraordinary. These girls are not only professional but also kind and treat us with respect. There were a couple of hiccups while transitioning from one owner to the other but now that everyone and everything is settled we are still very pleased to call Estancia at Morning Star our home. Stephanie and the rest of the girls really knocked out of the park!!

    I have lived at the Preserve at Old Dowlen for the past year and I can honestly say that my experience has been exceptional. Chelsea Hubbard and her entire staff have been most professional and have been a tremendous compliment to the facilities that provide an outstanding environment to call home. While problems have been minimal, each and every concern was immediately addressed with the utmost care and with a solution that kept the resident first and foremost.
    Often times only concerns are shared but this management team deserves to be recognized for all the good things they do to make this community thrive.
    Thanks for all you do!

    We moved into West End Lodge in August and I think the gates have been not working more than working and the dumpster areas are nasty all the time and the staff in the office don’t seem to care when you let them know if I pay for A gated community that’s what I want or my rent to be less for not having it…not sure if we will stay after our lease is up..

    Hello,
    Is there someone that I can speak with in management? I contacted The Landmark @ MC after I was given a listing to help my brother find an apt. After speaking with Jennifer he filled out the app & used my debit card to hold the apt. He was denied the apt due to his broken lease being 5 months shy of 3yrs. When I spoke with Jennifer on 2/3 she advised it could take up to 31 business days for the $200 refund. I have spoken with her several times without much help. She stated that she didn’t have a corporate number because they were in Canada. After several weeks of waiting I called to speak with the property manager (again) and spoke with someone named “B” who I have to explain everything to. She then called me & left a message stating that they check would would be sent to the office & I would be contacted to pick it up. Again after waiting several more weeks I called the office. Asking to speak with the property manager. At this point Brandy takes over & tells me that they can not release the information because it wasn’t my name on the lease. She advised that my brother needed to call. AT NO POINT since 2/3 did ANYONE tell me this. I have not been able to speak to somebody other than a leasing agent & it is beyond ridiculous. I need someone in the corporate office to contact me!

    First of all …I am not sure how this apartment community has 86% ….no wait they tell people to writing a review when they do something good. I am a real tenant that is so disappointed with these apartments.

    Before moving in:
    I was moving from another state so I basically had a few day to shop around once I got to Atl. …after doing research on the internet I wanted to see three apartment communities in the area Champion Green being one on my list due to the reviews (I believe now they are some what fake). I was met by the seemingly nicest staff ever. They charmed me to death. I am not going to lie, I felt important but after you move in you see the real staff over the fake staff. I was in love with the apartment that they showed me however little to my surprise that was just the model … The real ones are a better dated. I did find this out until I drive 500 miles to move in.

    My Move in:
    My move in date was pushed back because my apartment was not ready. This would not be a problem however they had more than two months. They basically rented me an apartment that someone else wanted. This should have been my sign but I wanted to give them a chance. Big mistake. Okay the apartment I got was located in an area where I didn’t want. The lighting was bad, problems with snakes yes snakes…I was told to buy my own stuff to take care of the problem. I have been living in fear in this apartment due to the location. I tried to move but they told me that my rent would be more in the next apartment so that you can move if you don’t like it is a BIG FAT LIE.

    The Gym:

    Well its a great space but not a great gym the equipment is old and has been broken for most of my stay here. But it could be great if they updated it. They charge enough for these apartments to have a GREAT gym.

    The Grounds:

    They keep these up for the most part but pest control is not that great. Snakes are a problem here. The dogs poop on the grounds and some of the tenants don’t feel they have to clean it up. This I am sure makes it hard for the grounds men. My apartment has heating problems. The pool and tennis courts are nice but you can’t live there.

    The Staff:

    I love two people on the staff. Their real and amazing however one has moved to a new location… that was a big mistake he was so great, and then there was one among the others. My move in person was delightful nice and all smiles before I moved in but a bit shaded after.

    Renewal time:

    We have paid our rent on time every month sometimes even months in advise nevertheless now its time for my renewal… my rent is going up and they don’t even offer month to month at a rate that is humanly affordable. They said my rent would double if I lived here month to month. Not good.

    Overall.
    Sadly…I would not recommend these apartments due to the integrity of staff. Paying more rent for no changes or correction is not cool. The apartments are the same a year later why pay more. Don’t move here.
