Love our new apt. & area, staff is great

My husband and I moved in this month, and we love our new modern apt. The amenities that it comes with are great, and the staff is excellent. I love how pet friendly it is, and how conveniently close it is to the shopping centers.

Maintenance personnel are amazing!

I've been living at Ascent for 3+ years now and whenever I have had maintenance issues the team has beyond exceptional especially Fernando Valenzuela. He has always been efficient, prompt and knowledgeable! Even during a pandemic crisis he showed up, with a mask to fix my sensor issue. Most recently showed up within 10 minutes to take care of the locks. I have had many issues from washer/dryer units to AC and he has always shown up and resolved the situation. He is quick, friendly and knows what he's doing.

Review

An overall OK apartment - parking, noise, and package management system are less than desirable. Parking is crowded and not maintained with towing or clear guidelines. Noise in public areas that are close to apartment windows is frequent - people past midnight and barking dogs in early morning. Package management system is confusing and has lost my deliveries. Staff is usually very helpful, but can be inconsistent in responsiveness. However, space in apartment itself is pretty good based on the price you pay.

Well managed until the new manager came a few months ago.

Poorly managed facility. It was great for my first 4 years years, but the new manager can't manage opening the fitness center from 6-8pm. Two days in a row I've stood there waiting for the doors to be opened. Nothing.. Calll and no one returns calls. I call two days in a row and leave messages, no response. Disapppointing to say the least!
