I really enjoy my town home I have been here for about 8 months and am very happy with the service. Every time I need something done the maintenance is here same or next day which is really important to me. The Townhome itself is fantastic and it has a washer and dryer and I am very close to downtown Royal Oak. It is an older building and my kitchen is on the small side, but overall I am happy.
Avoid this place. The price is way too high for what you get. The kitchen is tiny, basically useless if you have any other appliances than what is provided. The model is nothing like what your place will actually look like. The "recreation area" is a basement, I don't know how they get away with calling that liveable space. Your townhome is 800 square feet of liveable space, 400 per floor. I moved to this place after living in Royal Oak and my car insurance doubled. The townhomes are old and the walls are super thin, get used to hearing normal voice level conversations and your neighbors in the bathroom... super awkward! Our heating and cooling costs were astronomical, it's insulated poorly, if at all, and all your heat escapes out door and window cracks. The bathroom has a window and no fan, not the first time I've lived with that, but despite keeping the window open and using a dehumidifier, we were unable to control the mold that was painted over from previous residents. The sidewalks were not cared for very well and in winter you're better off walking through snow as long as you avoid dog pee and poop, our neighbors didn't do a good job of cleaning up after their pets. No assigned parking, and the lots are small. We were counting down the days till we could move out. Staff is ok and fixed most of our issues, but we had a window that wouldn't lock the whole year we lived there. If you're looking for the location, just go to Royal Oak, Clawson or Ferndale.
I have been at Village Green for almost a year and have had no issues. We were taken care of during the flood, I love my townhome. Karen, the manager, has always treated me with the utmost respect and has always been personable with me. When I had a setback she was understanding and kept in communication with me. The key is communication, and this is something that I value. When you build a rapport with people it works out in your favor.
I lived in this miserable slum for 2 years, and received no help from the management company. I'm lucky I didn't freeze to death. I asked them for a decent thermostat, and they refused to install one. Many of my other requests for decent living conditions drew no response from these jerks. Then, after I moved out, they installed new carpet in my former apartment, and took $200 out of my security deposit to pay for it. I called to ask them why, and they trumped up some pathetic excuse. They still refuse to give back the money they stole from me. Do not trust these snakes in the grass! Find a decent place to live.
The actual unit isn't as nice as their model, but it isn't terrible. Way too many layers of (bad) paint on the walls. Maintenance and office people are terribly hard to get a hold of. On the plus side my neighbors are nice and the area is nice. After bugging the office people for a bit they finally call back and take care of whatever you need. It's a decent price for the unit and they have a nice pool. I have never been broken into and my car has been left alone.... not sure what the other reviews have been about with the crime. So far it has seemed like a fine area. It's not a super high end area but it's not terrible at all. The walls are thin but my neighbor also has 4 teen kids that run up and down the stairs all day, I never hear my other neighbor at all and we all stay out of each others hair.
