Want to start out saying I really like these apartments and the customer service is awesome. I worked with Sumer McLaughlin, one of the leasing consultant at the property and she definitely did what she could to sell me this apartment. They offer great amenities outside of the lovely 2bed./2bath. I didn't end up going with the apartment just based on location and where I need to be located in Raleigh but she definitely made it hard to say NO. I really appreciated all the time and help she put in to help make my decision and I know whoever does join this community would love it. :)
I have been living at Camden Crest for going on 3+ years and could not be more satisfied. I have loved both one bedroom apartments I have lived in and would highly recommend Camden to others. The staff is exceptional! Very friendly and outgoing and always willing to answer any questions you may have. The Camden Crest location is great as well. Close to the mall, close to the airport and close to the beltline. I have also noticed that the noise level is relatively low as compared to other apartments I've lived in. I have no problems with hearing the people above or beside me. I have met a lot of my neighbors who are all very friendly. Overall, Camden is a great place to live!
Don't move here unless you are only looking to sign a one year or 15 month lease. When it comes time to renew, they will stick it to you. We have been hit with a $91 increase--Our rent is going from $728/mo to $819/mo (and that is the early bird rate). So not worth it, the apartment gives absolutely no incentive to be paying almost $1000 after they add all the force additives to your rate ($48-cable, $30-valet trash, and for us $100-garage fee). If we're going to pay $998/mo I expect upgraded features like stainless steel appliances, etc. But you get none of that here, so why so much? Even the rep at the office couldn't explain why so much, she quoted something about marketing by corporate. Makes no sense. Another issue I have is parking. There is minimal parking available, and if you do find somewhere to park, you can expect for your car to be tampered with or damaged. At least that was our experience while living here. We kept having our side mirrors moved and closed. Someone even hit our car and didn't leave any info, so we never found out which of our lovely neighbors did it and our insurance ended up covering for the damages. Ugh, this was a big inconvenience and we ended up having to rent a garage just to have a piece of mind. So if you move here, I strongly recommend renting a garage, we luckily got it half off for some promotion, but usually the garage cost $100. Noise is so-so. When we first moved in there was little to no noise, but now there are disturbances that have become more frequent with new tenants that have moved in the building. Lots of slamming of doors and running up and down the wooden stairs (which is right outside of our living room-so it gets annoying) and loud talking in the breezeway. Of course most of these things occur after office hours, so we just deal with it. The office staff is nice and try to handle the complaints, but there is only so much they can do, especially when people are being disruptive after the staff is gone. Another noise problem is the lawn upkeep/care. It seems like there is always noise in the morning or early afternoon noise from them cutting the grass or blowing leaves or debris. It gets annoying at times because it seems like it happens all the time, multiple times a week. Over all I don't recommend this place because its overpriced with no luxuries or incentives to balance the cost. Most properties nearby charging this much offer your upgrades like stainless steel appliances, hard wood flooring, plantation blinds, gated entry, track lighting, etc, but this place just doesn't supply these things, yet they want to charge like they do. I'm sorry a garden tub, tile flooring and back splash in the kitchen just don't do it when everything else in the apartment is so basic/standard. Nice community, but overpriced and we will not be renewing. We actually found a place that is offering all the luxuries we want for a much lesser price and I'm sure you can too :)
I am resident and I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE unprofessional management, bad customer service, they don't care about residents, manager she is so rude. before you move in they promise good costumer service after you sign your lease you done ( F...) DO NOT MOVE IN LOOK OTHER APARTMENT WITH MANAGER WHO CARE ABOUT US AS
Very disappointed, they tell you one thing and then do something else! I broke my lease and was told that if I got the apartment leased that it would not cost me but my deposit, Now they call me after I have removed my add from Craig list , after a lady came to my apartment and said she wanted it ( over 2 weeks ago) that the apartment had been rented on line. Then why did the office not let me know ASAP, how about if I had rented it also? As a professional I would have let them know ASAP. Now the rental agent that told me she had subleases the apartment is telling me it had been rented before she showed it. What but you took the lady back and signed the paperwork. Yes, this is my fault so I will have to pay a breaking lease few of 12??.?? , so since they did not talk to each other I'm having to pay? I moved here from a job, I tried to switch to a different Camden Property, No problem they told me, but that would have cost me over 2500.00 ,so if you are a professional and you maybe relocated with your job. DO NOT MOVE TO A CAMDEN PROPERTY!
