This is SHOCKING but my Partner and I do love it here. The Office Staff are very friendly and they DO CARE. From what we have seen, the Maintenance Team DOES work HARD on keep up appearances i.e.(Grounds, Landscaping, and repairs). Village Green is a NEW MANAGEMENT Company that are working very hard to REPAIR damages done by Residents. So it is NOT their fault. How you live reflects on the Neighborhood. I believe the ones who are complaining are the ones who are CONSTANTLY RUINING the Halls, floors, and Elevators. Its VERY SIMPLE, PEOPLE NEED TO START CLEANING UP after themselves. It is by far NOT the Management's fault. We are very happy to live here, and are very excited to see the NEW CHANGES to the Complex. Lets just HOPE that when the NEW CHANGES occur that Residents will RESPECT their SURROUNDINGS and HELP to KEEP OUR NEIGHBORHOOD CLEAN. It is a GROUP EFFORT.
FRAUD!!! We toured a 2 bedroom apartment at their complex, and immediately noticed how moldy the entire grounds smelled. Paint was peeling off of everything, and their ''construction'' and ''remodeling'' was half-complete at best, without any signs they had worked on it in months. We were in a bind, so we decided to put the $150 down to hold the apartment for 24 hours in case none of the other places worked out that we were going to tour, with the guarantee we will be getting it back... that was a lie. 24 hours after we cancelled our hold and confirmed our card would not be charged... Village Park of Bloomington Rent Collection shows up on our statement for $150.00. Not only is this place in poor repair and downright disgusting, but the office staff are clear-cut frauds, and will charge your account extra against your contract. Avoid them like the plague.
I'm typically not one to leave reviews no matter how good or bad the experience was, but I feel obligated to warn others of this place. Just read through the reviews, from everything I have read, there is no exaggeration. Management is horrendous, the building is in poor repair, it's dirty, I've personally witnessed vomit on the counter in the mail room left for days, even after being reported to management. Don't waste your time scheduling a showing, they'll tell you how millions of dollars are going into renovations, and only show the clubhouse and demo apartments which is probably the only nice place in the complex. Thankfully I only took over a sublease and only had 3 months here, but the worst 3 month experience I have ever had.
I thought about living here because some friends were going to be moving in and thought it was a nice place. As soon as they moved they said dont bother even coming to look, and after recently watching their cat while they were out of town I understand why. Walking in the place smells horrible, like a mix of mold vomit and urine. Halls are poorly lit, likely to cover the many stains on oddly dark carpeting or perhaps not to attract any more bugs than were already there. I have heard countless stories about how terrible this place is, and I felt moved enough by my visit here to write a review to warn others of this place. I would rather live in my car for a year than lease an apartment here. Seriously this is the worst place ive ever been to and they really need to condemn the building..
I would give negative stars if I could. This is a terrible place to live in, do not live there. We were told that rent is included most of the utilities but electricity and heat, nope, that was a lie, we ended up paying for everything! Their billing is very unclear, and if you ask about the utility bills, different people will give you a different amount, and there is no way that you can find out for sure if you are being billed correctly. We moved out 4 months ago, and still could not get our security deposit back, and heard nothing from them. They will try everything they can to suck money out of you. Do not live there!!!!!!!!!!
