I am a brand new renter, and I am still moving in; however, be not dismayed, folks, that Nick is no longer the manager, Adrianna, the new manager, is, in a word, terrific. She did everything possible to make my new place a home I would enjoy. The townstairs carpeting,although thorough cleaned for my move in, looked old and frayed along the edge from the tile to the carpeting. 'Enough said for her; the carpeting has been replaced. The entire townhouse looks freshly painted, and she is very responsive. I will post again after I have moved in, but, so far, my new place seems to be fabulous.
This place is horrible, I moved here in Dec 2010 in a 3br in the back of the complex and I hated it, the place was old and dirty. The stove didn't work and still doesnt. I moved to another unit up in the front of the complex and this one is no better. They obviously had a drug dealing hooker that lived here before me. There are strange men coming to my door asking for the last tenant. There are young men that have started coming to my door looking for drugs. It's Horrible! I'm planning on moving later this month. I never would have thought that this area would have gone down like this. The Greenhaven/South Land Park area has also been a really nice area. But I guess that's what happens when management starts moving scumbags in, just to keep the places full. They also need to start keeping the homes up, they have 1 maintenance man for 100 units, plus not counting the apts that they have across the street. There are water leaks in the townhomes that aren't being taken care of then when the damage has been done, they want to charge the tenant for it. STAY AWAY from this place and especially if you have children.
I lived here when Nick Dunn managed the property. I have to say he always responded to any maintenance problem I had even if it was after hours. One time Nick even waited for me to get home from work after hours and rolled a new refrigerator to my front door since mine went out and he knew my food would spoil if he did not take care of it right then and there. I am sad to hear he is no longer there. I hope they find someone as dedicated to Southwood as Nick was. I am basing my review on only the time I was there. I am not sure how management will be now with Nick gone.
I just moved here in August and I love it here. The staff are warm and friendly. I have no complaints and I would recommend you check this place out if your moving to the area anytime soon!
