The apartment management is poor. They don't respect your privacy and enter your apartment often. The apartments are nice for the price but the inside is very cheap. What do you expect from an old apartment complex. I received a noise complaint about my dog barking, the management chose to call the cops on me instead of simply addressing me on the issue. Thanks to them I now have to deal with that. They also tend to lose your paperwork and blame you. My advice would be to look elsewhere. There are much nicer and cheaper apartments in the area.
Taken over by some unfeeling corporate giant driven by bureaucracy and formality. I regret my decision to live here and am counting down the days till I can leave. Although I'll probably get screwed over with extra fees upon moveout. Rent from a human being, not this corporate monster.
This is by far, the most poorly run apartment complex I've ever lived in. For one, the current leasing agent, Chase (who parenthetically was fired from another local apartment complex due to poor management), does all he can to avoid working. He has little to no control over his maintenance staff. By "staff," there is one guy for the entire complex and he is sexist and old. Even if you can get past that, good luck with getting stuff fixed: a) The pipes banged at 5:30 am every morning from the shower from the upstairs apartment, waking us up every morning. We had to go to the extent of contacting the corporate office to getting something done. b) The heat does not work in the front of the apartment. This includes your living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The heat only works in the bedroom. c) The washing machine that comes with the apartment doesn't work on Heavy Soil, like literally won't turn on. Also, if you use low water or high water, the washing machine will not drain properly, leaving your clothes soaked and having to essentially ring out your clothes before you throw them in the dryer. So if you like living in poor-run apartments, then the Greens At Alvamar is for you.
The Greens is a gorgeous property - everything is very well kept and the layout is great! I have also had an awesome expereince with the management, Chase in particular. Chase is always helpful and willing to do whatever he can to make sure that the residents are taken care of - I would definitely recommend The Greens to any of my friends!
I'll preface this by saying that we had few problems during the two years we lived at the Greens. However, upon move-out I feel that we were taken advantage of by the management. We kept our apartment in good working order and thoroughly cleaned everything upon move-out. We thought everything was fine until we received a bill for 500 dollars beyond our 250 dollar deposit. I called to find out what some of the charges were, one charge was $110 to repaint the ceiling in the apartment. It was 20-40 to wipe off our counters and wipe down our cabinets both of which we had done after removing our cabinet liners upon move-out. We disputed these charges and managed to get the ceiling charge removed but ended up having to pay $320 plus our security deposit in damages. Worst of all, while we were still disputing the charges, the leasing company sent our information to a collection agency and now both of our credit scores have dropped 80 points. If you do decide to live here, make sure to take video or pictures upon move-out.
