    This is my first place in Texas and it is one of the nicest places I ever lived!

    4/5 Anonymous on Mar 1, 2022

    The exterior sound is typically quiet and the place is beautiful, so I would have liked the place more if the interior was the same. The walls are thin and the insulation is non-existent. The lack of lightning in the apartment is also annoying but what you see is what you get. Unlike in some places I've lived before, parking is never an issue and trash is far enough away I never have to worry about a smell. The presence of recycling and donation boxes are also very useful. The valet trash pick-up seems unnecessary but I'll admit it is convenient. Mail is easy to access and residents never seem to cause problems. Overall, I think the space is what it's worth.

    Since I've been here it's been great. I can't complain only thank everyone for being so kind and I would definitely refer these apartments. I've been here now going on maybe a month and a half I guess and yes absolutely a great place to live.

    5/5 Stormy W. on Feb 26, 2021

    I have lived here for over 5 years and love it!! This apartment is a good price for the size of it. The maintenance people are fast and friendly. When I need something done I put a request online and they always get back with me the next day to fix the problem. The office people are also very friendly and help me with everything I need right away!!!

    Very pleased with this apartment and complex. Apartment was super clean when I moved in. Love the vinyl plank flooring. The only thing I would change are the kitchen cabinets. They're very old and dated. Other than that, I really like it. The complex is very nice. No trash, and the grounds are well kept. Office staff has been very nice. Definitely recommend this place!

    No issues with neighbors or apartment

    4.5/5 Ryan P. on Jul 27, 2022

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. I do believe that this apartment complex is great. The maintenance staff is great. Always responsive quickly. This is amazing and I say thank you for that. I love the location of the apartments...it is in the middle of everything! I wish there were a little bit better amenities. Since I moved in, I have had to have them fix my closet door in the den, the door in the den, and the dishwasher did not have all the required parts. The sink did not have enough water pressure, however, they have done a great job at fixing all of these. I think that the value of the apartment is nice, and I appreciate that I live here. I have never had a management issue. Linda, who was my leasing agent, was amazing! I like it here.

    I have lived at Everra for a year. It is a clean, well appointed, safe quiet community. I use the common area conference rooms regularly for business meetings. It is excellent value close to shopping, I75, medical facilities and downtown. The staff is polite and responsive. It is a good value.

    4.5/5 Paul on Dec 23, 2021

    My son and I looked for a long time for an apartment. At my age I couldn't handle the stairs in our townhouse. We found the perfect 3 bedroom here. Move-in was great. The staff have been excellent. Highly recommended as the best luxury value inside I 635.
