This has been the most unpleasant place I have ever lived in. The apartment complex follow very poor maintenance standards. Also, expect fire alarms to go off at least once a week for absolutely no reason, and nothing will be done about it. Usually the alarm will be on for about an hour, turn off then turn on again several times. Last time this happened was 3am on a Monday night. The office also closes early so no one is there to help you during the night. So you are just stuck there waiting hoping the alarm will stop and you will be able to get some sleep. I look forward to moving out of here.
I have nothing but good things to say about the Red Road Commons Apartments. I have lived here since early August and thoroughly enjoy the community. It is in the perfect location and has great amenities. The pool area is extremely relaxing and luxurious and spending a saturday there or heading there on a sunny afternoon after class is amazing. The outdoor grill is very nice and I have enjoyed many meals due to the convince of the outdoor grilling area. The gym has great machines and is centrally located near the pool and grilling center. Everything is very accessible and goes above and beyond my expectations. My apartment has a very pretty balcony with a view of campus we also see the best sunsets. It is a three bedroom two bath but is extremely spacious. The kitchen has great brand new appliances in addition, we have a very nice washer and dryer. All of the amenities within the apartment and within the complex are great I have not come across one issue while living here. However, if you live here and come across an issue I highly recommend seeing the staff in the leasing office everyone is extremely accommodating and eager to help make your life as easy as possible. The community manager Mr. Fisher is amazing and I recommend you see him if you have any issues at all he will go above and beyond to make sure whatever the problem is is resolved immediately. In general Red Road is just a great place to live I can not speak highly enough of my living situation right now.
This is not the first apartment I have moved my child into in Miami. I have much experience dealing with landlords and living conditions. Of all the apartments, house rentals, landlords and management companies I have dealt with, Red Road, led by Gabriel Fischer was by far the best. We came to Red Road in January coming from a complex with a truly difficult staff. We were welcomed, well informed, given a fair rate and assisted at every turn for a pleasant move-in for my daughter and her roommate. We find the on-line portal very convenient. When a work order is placed, Tyrone has taken care of it efficiently. Brandy is a pleasant surprise. With one phone call and 5 minutes she took care of a problem my daughter was faced with. The place is clean,very conveniently located for the U and is kind to the lifestyle of the college student. Gabriel is there for you night and day. When a phone call or email is sent to him he responds immediately and resolves the situation promptly. Thank you Gabriel and Red Road Commons.
The location is good for its proximity to UM and Sunset Place. Brandy in the front office was very nice and helpful, and all of the maintenance staff is helpful and friendly, especially for the horrible work that they have to do fixing the many things UM kids break/mess up. Too bad it's full of messy loud college students.
Our relationship with Red Road began months before arrival time. Gabriel Fisher and his staff (Cecilia,Vanessa and Brandy) were there to address all issues and answer all questions that come with being a first time renter. The moment we arrived at Red Road we were greeted warmly by Gabriel and his staff. Gabriel walked with me and my daughter to the residence to see if a prior issue had been addressed. It had not, but Gabriel took care of it and had the subcontractor there with the hour! Gabriel has gone above and beyond in his role as Leasing Manager Of Red Road. He has physically assisted in unloading the car and delivering to the apartment, helping a stressed mom move furniture and tackle a task in room set up, delivering touch-up paint to the room and asking if there is anything more that he can do!!! He truly made move-in more efficient and enjoyable. The maintenance staff (we have been assisted mainly by Jesús) has also been extremely conscientious and responsive. I feel so very comfortable leaving my daughter with the friendly, approachable employees at Red Road whom I know will be attentive after my departure. -Patty Paster
