Let's work on some things :)

Guest parking: very limited guest parking to the point where literally guests cannot visit. However, only 1/2 of the resident spots are taken at a time, even on the busiest nights. PLEASE reevaluate this distribution as there are plenty of spots to go around. Maintenance: very responsive and gets the job done quickly (next day, if not same day) however, pride in their work would be kinda nice. We had an issue once where we needed a hallway light bulb changed.... the maintenance worker tracked in plaster into our unit hallway, replaced the bulb yet did not even screw it in.. huh? We (tenants) had to remove the ceiling feature in our apartment to screw in the lightbulb after the replacement was "complete". Payment issues: Twice now my roommate and I have been unable to pay rent. not that we haven't tried, but the first month of rent that we tried to pay, the automated system removed the full ~$1,040 from each of us. and then we got charged a late fee on top of that. Not our fault. Next, a few months later, we tried to pay rent and the rent cafe system was down. Since this was "our second payment issue" it was mandated that we could only pay with a cashier check... again, not our fault. It's seriously little things. Constant management turnover, rent inconsistencies, guest parking issues, neighbor inconsiderations (smoke smell) among other little things. I hope this constructive criticism helps as you guys move forward. This review was not meant to be inflammatory, but was to serve as comments regarding my roommate and my time here for the past 7 months. Thanks

Stop being petty

Stop trying to nickle and dime everyone. Just be honest about your mistakes and people would be more willing to work with your staff.

Mandated Review

Adjustments to aesthetics are looking nice. The company that was hired to do them is extremely sloppy and does not consider the mess they leave behind.
