I've lived here for a couple of months now. I wanted to actually experience the apartment before I submitted a review. Just like everyone one else, I checked the reviews before even starting the application and Camden Whispering Oaks had the best reviews by far out of all the apartments I was considering which helped me decide to move in. Breona was my leasing agent and she was AMAZING! I've read quite a few reviews on her alone and every word everyone else said was 100 percent correct. She goes above and beyond to make your move in experience seamless. If you are looking for a great apartment complex I definitely would recommend stopping by Whispering Oaks.
I have lived at whispering for about 2 1/2 years.Overall the staff is great they are nice and helpful. The gym is well equipped and the community for the most part is pretty quiet, it is mostly older people and families, so you do have the occasional kids screaming. They do come with cable which is a bummer... While its a good cost you can get Direct -Tv with DVR for the same cost but to pay for two cable options is just not in my budget. I do worry about reviews I have read about move out due to how the unit looked when I moved in. I also had a past neighbor tell me that someone lived in my unit that was a drug lord or something and the unit got raided. So I am not sure if this is what caused the dents and huge chunks of plaster missing from my wall that they re plastered over in a poor way. Hope they don't try to get me to pay for all this but I did list it at move in... I mean the unit is pretty bad and in no shape for form did the walls, carpet, floors, kitchen, even the washer and dryer and shower all looked really worn. Though I was careful to mention this all on my walk thru at move in. The staff since then has completely changed so hopefully it doesn't come back to bite me. They apt is pretty poorly insulated my energy bills are crazy high and leave my air at 80 during the day 72 at night (I am hardly home I work 2 jobs for it to be $100+ a month). Not sure why this is having lived in alot of apartments on the top floor I have never experienced bills this high. I do agree with past post about it being pricey, but that appears to be Camden properties in general considering it being outside the loop which is suppose to save you some $$$. They do raise the rent yearly it seems which is a shame for current good tenets because I would like to stay but depending how much more it goes up (last year was close to $100/mo) I most likely will have move. Overall I would recommend moving here! You wont regret it, just make sure it is in your budget plus the closet highway is west park so be prepared to toll is everywhere.
I currently live here so here are my reviews so far - getting someone to pick up the phone at the leasing office is 1) a hour long process 2) end up giving up due to calls being routed to a call center. As far as the complex goes - it's expensive the amenities are nice since they have a gym and pool but you end up paying for it in the end. The walls are extremely thin I hear my neighbors upstairs and next to me all through the night. This is probably nothing to do with the leasing office since it's the way the complex was built and designed. There are upgraded appliances but my fridge makes noise like it's about to go out all the time, the washer and dryer are nothing above average.
I lived at Camden Whispering Oaks for about 15 months from march 2014 to June 2015. To start with, Camden Whispering Oaks is a nice place to stay, the staff and management are really friendly and nice people, however my move-out experience changed this idea and showed the real face of Camden Whispering Oaks management. At the time of moving out I requested to run a final check of the apartment with my presence, and I was told by the stuff that there is no one available at the time to do that with me. Because of all the positive things I mentioned above about the place and the management, I trusted them to do the move out alone, and That was a big mistake! At first, I received a call from them telling me that they did the inspection and everything looks good except a dent in the refrigerator which they are going to charge me for (they didn't tell me about the charge, but I guessed it will be to replace the refrigerator), so I requested to come and check the refrigerator with them, they agreed and an appointment was set. I went and met with the manager, he showed me a picture of the refrigerator which didn't show anything wrong with it, and we decided to go to the apartment and check ourselves. when we went there, we spent few minutes looking at the refrigerator without noticing anything, and finally he showed me a very little dent which can't be seen unless you really focus and change angels to spot it. I told him that we have never seen that and this really might be there since the time they purchase the refrigerator. He agreed with me and he told me that he will confirm with the inspectors and clarify. I thought that was the end and everything is fine, as in their first call, I was told that everything looks good except the refrigerator, However that was not the end, and I got an email this time charging me extra $30 for heavy cleaning!!! and another $95 for thermal Fog-food or smoke Odor!!(I already paid $125 cleaning fees and it is more than enough to clean whatever left unclean). I called them and explained to them that these charges are untruthful and if the apartment is that dirty and smelly they would of notice this from the bingeing rather than calling me with the refrigerator story and also the manager would of notice that when we went back and inspect the refrigerator, and at that point the nice smiley people changed to really rude. Just at that point I remember to check the reviews on the web, and from few reviews I found out that this is normal as they have a history of untruthful move out charges. what I found made me feel really satisfied and proof to me that I kept the apartment in really good shape, and it is just Camden Whispering Oaks management habit. Finally I paid another $ 125 (which exactly the same as $125 I already paid) just to end this and move on. I thought sharing this would help others and make them better prepared for the move out if they decide to choose Camden Whispering Oaks!
We've been living at Camden Whispering Oaks for almost 3 years and just renewed for another year. Service is great. If anything inside the apartment gets broken ( we had the kitchen sink gasket break), filter or light bulb changed, it gets fixed/changed same day or next (if evening). Everyone in the office is very helpful and nice. Overall clean nice complex grounds and apartments.
