    I have been renting a 2 bedroom apartment since late in 2016. I work nights at a laboratory about a 10 minute drive away from Emory Woods. The complex is very quiet (neighbors have never been too loud at all when I am sleeping) and everyone seems to get along with each other. Emory Woods is also very conveniently located to a number of shopping centers and you can get to the downtown areas of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill with little difficulty.
