I am only ten years old and every time I go to the office to pick up packages for my mom the black lady is very rude to me. There are also times when all the black children get blamed for everything like the time a pipe was broken when it was actually 2 girls which one is only a visitor who does not live here. My mom called the office to alert them when a manager arrived the 2 girls blamed the boys who were playing soccer instead of the actual culprits. My 2 sisters were playing they are 5 and 7 they were throwing sand around air-conditioner which they got punished they were wrong for it but instead of knocking on our door the manager called the police. Children have voices too.
I have been a resident at Andrews place for 4 yrs. now. The only things that irritate me is that management is always going up on rent every year. And me being a tenet who is not on section 8 has to come out of pocket. I feel that the residents who actually pay their own bills should not be targeted to pay more rent. I pay my bills on time and I never cause any problems, I should not have to recertify an application with the state housing agency yearly because I am NOT on section 8 I feel as though they are taking advantage of the tenets that actually come out of pocket by working and paying their own rent. I really believe that as long as I'm paying my rent on time, keeping my apartment clean and doing what I'm supposed to do as a loyal resident I should not be bothered about paying more rent.... And..... I do not like that the maintenance men are prohibited to forcefully come into your apartment when you are not at home and or try to come in when you are sleeping. I truly feel as though some of the regulations and rules are again set up for people who are on a SECTION 8.I should not have to worry about having apartment inspections of cleanliness ," I am a grown woman" and recertifying yearly with state housing agency...
When i seen the horrible review about Andres Place Apartments. I took it upon myself and took time out my busy schedule to write my own review and to show how great of a place Andrews Place is. I have been living at Andrews Place apartment for 2 years and the staff is great. After new Management took over everything it is so good. Winnie is a great Manager with a lot of experience. When i need something to be fixed in my apartment the maintenance staff is great and very pleasant and fast to respond to my problem. Even though it's not a gated complex it is safe to raise my kids. I'm a very happy resident that plan to reside here as long as that i am fortunate to do so. And mangement to very caring to my issue.
The place itself is good in terms of geographical location, and it is fairly new. (It is about ten years old or so). the location is good because it is near the major businesses of the city. However, the complex is progressively becoming a dump, a zoo, and a lawless place. That is 100 % due the current manager Winnie. She is not fit for the manager position. She lacks the tactfulness, the skills, and the knowledge required for the job. I do NOT recommend anyone who is seeking peace and quiet to consider Andrews Place. It is possible the situation can turn around if a well seasoned manager.
Poor maintenance, Poor management, The office people are rude and they don't congeal to requests. Tenant grounds filthy, trash in stairwells. There is a no loitering policy in stairwells and in parking lot. CONSTANT groups of loud people in both and when the issue is brought to the front office. Their response is to call 911. So they don't hand complaints in house even though its in your housing contract. YOU CAN HEAR everything your neighbors do. Traffic and parking horrible, I don't let my children play outside due to quality of people and not following posted speed limits. Trash service is terrible; The community trash compactor is always over flowing. People place trash on the grounds at front of entrance right where school buses pick up the children. I do not recommend this place. For 750/1000 a month you could def find a more family oriented place to live. And if you have an issue after hours GOOD LUCK. I HAVE NEVER been able to get a hold of anyone, it is just a recording. Hopefully its not over the holidays either like it was for me. Also if you love sleepless nights you'll love it here. I know a little about fire inspection and fire systems. They hardly get service and they always are going off. Just contact PCFD station 2 about their LOGs for this place. btw THE COMMUNITY POOL is ALWAYS dirty.
