I have been a resident at Camden Vanderbilt for almost 3 years (March 2012 to present day of February 2015), and I've been beyond satisfied with most aspects of living here including the timeliness and hard work of the maintenance staff, the quality of living, and the staff in the leasing office. Firstly, the grounds are kept very clean, and the maintenance staff is quick to respond to any requests. Secondly, the staff in the leasing office are incredibly nice and friendly people. I have never felt intimidated or shy to approach any one of them to discuss any issue that I may be concerned with. They are eager to assist me. Georgina is the person who has helped me the most - she is super nice. Furthermore, Camden Vanderbilt is simply a great place to live - it's quiet (compared to living in midtown, for example), it's beautiful - with a pool, 2 lakes, and a great pathway for running and walking; and Camden Vanderbilt is in a great location - just 2 miles from the Med Center and so close to many key locations in Houston. I'm the type of person who is a very hard grader. If there was a 10 point scale, I would have graded a 9 out of 10 though. Over the past year, a few of the weights have disappeared from the weight room and have not been replaced. Although I personally have always felt very safe and secure at Camden, there were a couple of car and apartment thefts reported over the past 2 years. Since the time when those thefts occurred, Camden has taken positive steps to prevent this activity. They hired a night-time security guard. Since that time, reports of thefts have been down. I am very happy about this and I now feel even more safe and secure. Great job, Camden!
I have been a Camden Vanderbilt resident for almost two years and I have had a very positive experience so far. The leasing staff is very helpful and professional. They know me by name and treat me with respect, so I don't feel like a stranger whenever I need something. The staff is very receptive to feedback about the community, and a few times I have mentioned the lighting around the premises can be improved. They are taking initiatives toward improving the lighting, by spending a portion of their budget to increase lighting on the grounds as well as the top levels of the parking garages. Regarding the property in general, the grounds are always kept very nice and clean. The valet trash service is a wonderful perk about living here; you don't have to make frequent trips to the dumpsters. Additionally, the maintenance staff are quick and responsive to maintenance requests. My requests are usually answered the next day. The maintenance team is also very friendly and supportive of any issues that need to be corrected in our units. Overall I feel this is a great place to live in terms of cleanliness, professionalism, and resident service. I am a very happy resident of the community.
We have lived in Camden for 4 years its been great specially last 2 years. I personally would like to mention about the new management they are great!specially Keisha she is awesome. Rest we love here and the security is definitely improved. It feels like home for sure. Home away from home. A heartfelt thanks to the maintenance team who are quick and prompt and good at their job! CAMDEN VANDERBILT HAS DEFINITELY GROWN AND PROGRESSED CHEERS!!!!
Only lived here for about 10 months, but everything has been great. A few security issues- not really sure what the guard in the front "guard house" does, break-ins, etc. But I feel like in Houston, this is expected. The Brompton gate is constantly broken, but they really are doing everything to try and fix it in a timely manner. They seem to be very focused on making this complex a great place to live. Have never had any issues with our apartment, except wanting our refrigerator filter changed and it was done within a few days. We really love the area, and would recommend the Camden Vanderbilt!
I moved here after a GREAT experience at another Camden residence. This has proved to be much less awesome. When I moved in the new paint masked a horrible cigarette smell that has made it's way through the paint. I've never had to deal with roaches before I lived here. Now, almost daily I find roaches in my apartment. Nothing is completely broken, but nothing really works either. From the sink garbage disposal that barely grinds along to the trickle of water that comes out of the shower head and the toilet that has to be flushed 5 times to get a deuce down; everything is technically working so when you put in a maintenance request, they just look at you like you're stupid and say it's working fine. I wouldn't adamantly advise against renting here, but I wouldn't highly recommend it either. There are definitely worse places you could end up living, but I feel like for the money one pays here, simple amenities/appliances should actually work.
