LSM: My husband and I moved into The Morgan approximately 3 weeks ago and love the place, especially the community management team. We put a deposit on our unit back in February 2011 and do not regret waiting for this unit. We continuously checked on the progress each week. Rose, Melanie, and Rob were super each time we visited their office to ask questions (even though they were busy with other people). They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. One night we arrived just before closing and Melanie stayed after to show us another apartment like the one we were getting because ours was not finished yet. Upon moving in they were so helpful and generous with their time. The first day Rose came by the apartment and asked us if we had any problems that needed to be taken care of. There were a few but Marcus arrived the next day with the contractor and his men. We couldn't ask for better service from the team members here at the Morgan. Our condo unit is exactly what we envisioned and Rose, Melanie, Rob, and Marcus have made the transition great for us!
I currently live in Hampton, but work in Downtown Norfolk and was looking to relocate to the other side of the water with the possibility of tolls and gas prices at $4.19/gallon. After research, I thought this place was a close as I would get to where I live now, The Chapman in the Peninsula Town Center. They have all the same amenities and then some. However after reading these reviews, I am terrified to leave. I have lived here for almost a year and it's been wonderful. The management are even nicer AFTER you sign the lease. The other places in Norfolk are supposed to be luxury but no stainless steel appliances (go figure) and I'm afraid to live somewhere that's not finished yet (Monticello Station) and deal with what these poor people are going through. I think I'm just going to have to suck it up and stay where I'm at because one thing I can say is for the past 10 months coming home is the most peaceful part of my day. I moved out of my home, turned it into a rental property, and moved here to escape the woes of constant maintenance issues and cosmetic defects - not to move to an apartment where I would pay more than my mortgage to deal with the same nonsense.
dont know for all the evil reviews. i moved in on Jan 31 and this place has been delightful to me and my family. Don't know if others are to uppity or just greedy,but no complaints here. The staff is wonderful and friendly and always been greeted in a cheerful manner. Great amenities and a awesome location in Chesapeake. Just can't see why people complain when they move into a place that is under construction. Wait for the finish product before you judge. Yes the gym isnt open yet,...but where were you working out at before you moved here if you were working out at all. All these things that tenants are complaining about just don't add up to my experience here. Maybe I'm lucky....or just see my way thru the BS.
WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not rent here if you value your family's safety and your personal stuff. I just found out that the new maintenance guy (who by the way, is old as hell) is a coke head. That's right, A COKE HEAD. How do I know this. Because I overheard him and the cleaning lady talking about it on the 4th floor in my building. They were in some kind of storage room next to the elevator. And since this dump has the thinnest walls ever created, I heard them talking. He told her that his live in girlfriend is a coke head. And that he doesn't go out to look for it but if he see's it in front of him, he will use it. ARE YOU PHUCKING SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!!! I always had my doubts about this guy because he would always be jittery all the time and scratching/sniffing/playing with his nose. That's why he does that. HE IS A COKE HEAD. Are you seriously telling me that management didn't know he is a drug addict. The guy also told me that he is good friends with Melanie who works in the office. Is she a coke head too. I'm so glad my lease is up next month. Looks like I'm getting out of here just in time.
