I really love the Aventine. Great experience so far! Thelma from the rental office is very nice and timely in her responses. The apartments are *huge* by the way - the biggest I've seen in the D.C. Metro area! Also, the area is quiet, the lawns are nicely manicured, and the facilities are nice and well maintained. I like the fact that the Aventine is secluded but still very close to the highway. They maintenance team quickly responded to my requests [they stopped by and repaired everything within 24 hours - definitely wasn't expecting that]. The only reason why I'm giving the Aventine 4 stars rather than 5 is because I've been having some issues with my dryer and as a result, my electric bill may be high this month. If you're looking for a nice place to live, you should definitely check out the Aventine.

When I initially moved here, I really liked the neighborhood. The apartment was nice in comparison to other apartments. I really liked the appliances and layout of the apartment. The management seemed responsive and willing to assist in any way possible. Over the years, this place has seen a steady decline. The major issue is their lack of accountability for most problems. If you send in a maintenance request, you wait for weeks for someone to respond. If they begin a job, you may or may not receive notification that they have been in your apartment, and most jobs are left incomplete. The second issue are the court summons that are placed on people's doors if they are late with rent. While I understand their need to protect their business, I find myself explaining to my guests why those notes are present on doors constantly. Lastly, the parking policy is really murky. The spots are "reserved", but there is signage for some parking spots and not others. People park their cars in the lot , who do not live in the apartment complex, and leave them there. This poses a serious issue especially with a non-responsive management staff. I really liked my apartment for the first two years, but the switch in management has led to some changes that have drastically changed my opinion.

Thinking about moving here? Then, welcome to a ghetto-fabulous Property Manager and his hand-picked gangsta maintenance crew!! Evidence that shadiness really does start at the top. However, the Property Manager's cheap suits and fedora hats can't mask his poor leadership skills and obvious focus on "curb appeal" and the "appearance" that everything is neat, clean, and in order. Look closer, much closer. Property (now Section 8, I think) is crime-ridden with lots of less than desirables, sloppy interior paint jobs, stray cats, loud music, cursing and loud voices throughout the night, unsupervised kids yelling and screaming, and the like. My wife and I moved away from this complex recently - mainly because of the "questionable" maintenance guys with keys and full access to the apartment units. Just didn't feel safe here; apartment didn't feel like home -

The cheap door handle to my bedroom door broke off this morning, and I was unable to open the door. I called the leasing office and spoke to the manager named "Tasha" at 9am. She was inconsiderate, unprofessional, and rude. She said that it may not be fixed until tomorrow by maintenance, because they may have more "important priorities" today! This is a top priority, as I can't open the door to my bedroom-therefore I can't access my bed, clothes, etc. Absolutely ridiculous!
