Slugs, pinworms, trash collectors as neighbors...where do I begin? This apartment complex is the biggest mistake I've made in housing, and I've been renting for 10 years. Most recently I've found multiple slugs in my bedroom on two separate occasions, and on the most recent occasion, they didn't bother to send maintainence for well over 24-hours. I notifed them on day 1 and it wasn't until day 3 that they sent someone to patch the hole that the slugs were coming through. Me and my daughter also contracted pinworms, which we didn't have before we moved here. That might have been because the previous tenants were collecting trash from the dumpsters. The management refuses to let me out of my lease, and so we are faced with having to pay rent on two places now. They could care less about what we are suffering through, and stick to the letter of their contract. They don't care about our well-being. In my opinion, this is the last place you should choose to live. Also, we asked for a 3-month lease, and it wasn't until I was on my way here that they informed me that the 3-month mark wouldn't begin until the next month. Since I had moved here on the 5th, my "3-month" lease was now 3-months and 25 days. I was very misinformed on that. And last but not least we have been infested with insected - mostly huge - from day one. This all makes me want to vomit!

I lived here two years, and while it was exactly as an expected apartment life would be, the loud neighbors, the police were called on them several times, the appliances were old, my purse got stolen out of my purse.. blah blah blah... It wasn't great by a long shot. It was okay-ish despite all the junk we had to put up with... There was a maintenance man who just walked in my apartment with no notice. He about got his face shot off too. We have guns, lots of them. In my opinion it was not worth the money. We live in an apartment with the same amount of space, two bedrooms, and it has a laundry room etc... its over 100$ cheaper!! I just feel like for the money you will spend @ Buffalo, you shouldn't have to deal with some one the junk. They should have a police officer to patrol the apartment complex, they should kick out people when you complain on them being loud, and having to be woke up by them screaming "He's going to kill me!" at 2am! My husband and I felt like we were watching Jerry Springer every night... Didn't even need cable! If they want a classy seven/eight hundred dollars a month, they should keep a classy complex... That's all I'm saying. Can't have your cake and eat it to. So, why am I writing this review you ask? Well, I am applying for a home loan, and I have to have proof of payment for the last 13 months. So, I only needed the last 5 months of "proof of payment" from Buffalo, I got in and ask to get a print off of it (I remembered that they said they keep your info for one year after you move) So, she says, "Well, I need a 50$ payment, then I can fax it to your mortgage consultant." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?!?! FIFTY FREAKING DOLLARS? I said, "You're joking, right?" She says," Company policy." So if you plan to get a home after you live at Buffalo you will have to make a 50$ payment for your own freaking information. Yep. You read that right... for a piece of paper that cost pennies. What a joke. Moral of the story. Don't get a place here. Apartment life is apartment life... Its going to have your annoying people everywhere you go, but at least don't pay an arm & leg for it. Save your money paying a little less, and get in a home asap. Apartments are great if you need to get on your feet or you're just starting out, but this one is for the birds~

Where do I begin? This place is sub par all away around the board. The staff seemed uninterested, the apartment itself was made of paper, and the neighbors were absolutely terrible. I lived there for 1 year with my roommate and we could almost guarantee something was going to be wrong when we walked back it. The water pressure was terrible, the kitchen appliances are ancient, and every time it rained it leaked The light switch in the master bedroom worked approximately1/5 times I tried it (that is not an exaggeration), and you could hear my neighbors with every breathe they took. (I do understand apartment living, also).The neighbors had the cops called on them 4 times, and one of them had their car broken into. Here is the kicker though, when we moved out they not only took our $250 deposit, but they are saying we owe in excess of over 300 more dollars for various fee's and repairs. My roommate and I cleaned the apartment thoroughly and they still managed to charge us for absurd things. Reglazing the counter tops? Are you kidding me? They are saying we owe a $300 pet fee, because i watched my girlfriends dog for the past few weeks prior to move out date. The appearance and location of this place is what drew us in, but after living there for a year, I could not have gotten out any sooner.

I lived at Buffalo Creek years ago, when it was owned by JC Hart. I loved it so much, I decided to live there again...BIG mistake!!! My first problem came during the hottest summer on record. My AC stopped working-and my apartment felt like an oven. Maintenance came out to "fix" the problem...days later, my AC stopped working again. Maintenance came out again, and again...and again...finally-one of the maintenance guys told me there was a leak. He said he discussed that with their manager-and the manager didn't want to replace the unit-b/c it was too expensive...so she said keep filling it w/ freon...even though the freon was leaking all over the place!!! After a gazillion request to fix the problem, they finally replaced my unit (or at least they claim they did)-just in time for cooler weather. My next problem came in the middle of the night (mind you-i'm a single female, living alone). I'm in the shower-when I hear something. I got out of the shower and walked into my dark living room-and there was a man standing there!!!!! He said he was maintenance-and there was a mixup-he had the wrong apt! The next day, I spoke w/ the manager. She was apologetic and nice as can be. She did, however, make a comment that completely offended me. She told me she would've been terrified too, if she walked out of the shower-and found a "black" man standing in the living room!!! I'm sorry...but it doesn't matter what color your skin is---when an uninvited stranger makes his way into your living room---it's a terrifying situation. Not long after, around 1:30am...I was home alone. My apartment was hotter than ever, so I had my patio door open. I heard a faint knocking on my door. I disregarded it-thinking it was for the neighbor. The knocking continued-so I looked out the peep hole. There was a man standing at my door. I ignored him...preparing to call 911. He then stretched around to my porch-peeking his head into my patio doorway. He said he was lost-I and asked if he could spend the night. Obviously-I refused...and called for backup. I informed the office staff the next day-and of course...the manager never reached out to me with concern. The fourth issue came on moveout day. I moved out on New Years Eve. I finished deep cleaning my apartment, and I was ready for my moveout inspection. Around 3:30pm I went down to the office...doors were locked. Apparently, they closed early. I called them on their next business day-2 days later. I was told that I owed rent for those 2 days, b/c I didn't leave my keys in the drop box!!! I talked to the manager, b/c I thought if I explained the situation she would not charge me for 2 days of rent. She said people with "better excuses" are still charged, and I should have to pay, but she said she'd talk to the district manager. After she supposedly spoke with the DM-they came to an agreement. I would have to pay for one day...she insisted that this was fair. I told her that I'd like to speak with the DM. She said she'd have that person call. Meanwhile, she wrote down my new address. 2 weeks later, the DM never called-so I called. The manager told me that the DM "didn't feel like dealing with the problem," so they wouldn't charge me for those 2 days. She also said she was sending my security deposit in the mail...she said she didn't have my new address (duh...I gave it to you!!!), so she mailed it to my old address. I received the letter...with a bill. $120 is what they charged me for "spots" on the carpet!!!! Are you frickin kidding me?!!! I am the cleanest person you will meet. I make people take their shoes off at the door. My apartment was cleaner when I moved out than when I moved in! I even replaced the drop pans that go underneath the burners on the stove. I got down on my hands and knees to mop the floors. I cleaned the trim. $120 to remove stains on the carpet?!!! Ridiculous.I do NOT reccommend renting at Buffalo Creek-unless you want to deal with a manager who is an air head-and who makes decisions to feel powerful-instead of doing what's right.

First off the only reason I put "Poor - Fair" was because it was the lowest score I could give. I moved in at the end of 2011, and I will go give a list of all the problems I had in a year. First, after being there for about three week the people above me were moving and they busted my window out. The office did call and said they will send someone to come and clean up the mess. Fine, not there fault. They told me I should have a new window within two weeks. Okay, well two weeks came and passed. NO call from the office so I called them. Long story short it took about a month to get a new window which was right by my front door. It looked like I lived in a shack for right at a month. Never received an apology or any concern from the office. Next, it was probably a couple of weeks after my window was busted out I went to take a shower at about 11:00pm and my hot water didn't work. Apparently hot water is not an emergency so I had to shower the next morning at my neighbors. Come to find out all the maintenance guy had to do was hit a reset button on the water heater. The reason I live in apartments is so don't have to deal with this crap. Water heater went out again like a week later. I figured out where the reset button and had to hit it about ten time over the course of the next year. Also, I went to go to bed one night and I heard a drip coming from my window, and there was a puddle on my carpet right by my bed. Call maintenance again. I wasn't home when they came by, but it still dripped just not real bad. I learned to deal with it. Also, the coil in my stove broke twice. I have never seen that happen, and it took a few days to get replaced the first time. The second time it was broke they did replace it in a timely manner. Another time one of the maintenance guys had to fix something at my neighbors and while he was there he told us about how the lady who lived above him calls all the time. Well I went to high school with her, and I think it is really unprofessional to complain about another tenant. I know why she called. Her balcony was falling apart and she had no air conditioning during the hottest part of the summer. I guess that means she is a complainer to the office. The best happened when I moved out. I get a letter stating they are keeping my deposit and they want an additional $158. I will finish this review later. I don't have the letter on me, but it was so petty the stuff they charged me for.
