If I could give this place a zero I would. The parking sucks! There are two many apartments to accommodate all the cars. People park in unassigned covered spots and are being towed daily because there are not alot of visitor parking. Constant noise all night long from cars bumping music to tenants fighting in the parking lot. The employees in the office loose checks, keys and any other important items tgey receive. I moved out in Jan 2016 because I could not bare to sign another lease with this complex. I cleaned the hell out of the apartment and of course they had to send me a letter saying I owe them $10.22 for apartment cleaning. REALLY! I went back to the office to give them this $10.22 the guy working to a copy of the check and I thought...thank GOD I am out of here...low and behold a month later I get a PSE energy bill for this apartment saying I still reside there... I called PSE and told them I moved out and they said they would call the apartment to see when I returned the keys. A week later I received another PSE bill with a higher balance oweing. I called PSE and asked them what was going on?...they said they we're still waiting for Argyle to contact them...if they were waiting on them they would be waiting for hell to freeze over. So, I provided PSE all my documents of when I moved out. And finally it was resolved or so I thought... I received a letter from a collection agency saying I owe the $10.22. The same $10.22 I wrote a check for and gave it to the employee, two days after I moved out of this dump. Now I have to resolve this...once this is done I hope nothing else pops up from this unprofessional, shady apartments. If I worked for corporate of this apartment complex, I would walk in to the office and say...In the famous words of Donald Trump "YOUR FIRED"
So far at Woodside we've enjoyed very good customer service from the manager, Tammy and D. Otherwise, the office managers seem to be rude. There are loud, noisy children all day, and in the summer since its light out they are super loud after I ask them to stop screaming at 9 pm. The walls are super thin, this place was built twenty years ago and needs to be renovated, badly. I'm tired of hearing my neighbors do everything including each other at 11 pm to 6 am. There are birds that live in our dryer vents that we don't use and sound like rats in the walls, making clicking sounds and chipmunk sounds too. When the garbage trucks pick up the trash I hear them as if I'm standing right next to the truck, and this happens about twice a day, seriously. The apartment doesn't assign you a parking spot without a $30/mo fee, they leave you to fend for yourself with the uncovered = free policy, and the parking is taken up by 7:30-8 pm daily, even sooner on the weekends. There's this guy who likes to park a trailer in the free spots and park his truck somewhere else, wasting a spot for those who get off work at 6 pm and have no parking. I am overall happy with the layout of the apartment itself, its open and roomy for a one bedroom and is cheap-priced since we bought it on a special. The kitchen and bathroom floors are vinyl but look like wood, there are hookups for washer and dryer, and everything works like it should, but unfortunately I had to clean out the bathroom sink and I found black mold and stuff that looked like a layer of mushroomy-substance lining the pipes. Sometimes I wonder what else hasn't been cleaned in years...You can't replace any appliances, which could be a downside if you have a nice oven or fridge you want to use, but the ones here work sufficiently. The utility billing cycle is two months late and so when you leave they take out the excess billing out of your security deposit, a practice I don't like but hey, it can be good and bad. I would suggest when you look at the apartment, ask that everyone be quiet and listen to see if you can hear the words of the people living around you, if so and you stay home all day with no kids then you could go crazy listening to "That 70's Show" theme songs all day and people screwing each other all night. Also, when they have you check out all the stuff when you sign the lease, make sure to check EVERYTHING, as I noticed some things later that I didn't before. Some people said that the management was rude and even mentioned an asian lady, but there is no asian lady that was a year ago. This is June 2012 that I write this, so if its been a few years, do your own investigating and don't jump to conclusions, they could change some things between now and then. Good luck!
I mean management themselves don't know what the heck their doing...they don't communicate very well cause obviously they start charging people amounts out of nowhere..and when asked to speak to higher up as in the owner of the place they say they don't have the number or there's nothing they can do to help. What does it take for them to do their job right..I mean come on!..On top of that, one person can be helpful one day and then the next time you go up there the other person have a different say in things..AND THE ASIAN LADY THERE HAS NO IDEA WHAT SHE F***N TALKS ABOUT SOMETIMES...SHE OPENS HER MOUTH AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HECK SHE'S SAYING!!...SERIOUSLY! I would not recommend this apartment to anyone!..the problem is not the tenants it's the EFFN management who have issues. You tell them about the tenants and they look at you as if you got stupid written on your forehead, if only they knew their the ones who look stupid with that blank face! *FED-UP*
