Every time we've needed something fixed i.e. stove light, weather strip, etc., we were assisted in a timely manner. Staff is super nice to our family each time we see them. It's beautiful here, and I'm choosy when it comes to aesthetics. I only wish the carpet was nicer. I don't have a dog (yet!), but this community is very dog friendly. I wish there was a children's park onsite for my almost two-year old but the brier creek community center/elementary school is just down the road. We use the gym frequently. I wish the treadmills were updated; I don't feel like the belts run smoothly for easy running, but that's such a small thing! The Crossings is quiet, beautiful and overall I'm happy to live here!
I have been a long time resident at The Crossings and I have to say this has been the best community I have lived at! I have a one bedroom on the third floor with vaulted ceilings. I was attracted to this community due to the location (convenient to work) and the great staff. I read the other review and just do not believe what they are saying is true. Everytime I have put a work order in they are there the same day to repair and the staff has always been pleasant. They went to the extreme to help track a package that was delivered to another community by mistake for me. It was a wedding present for my sister! All in all I love my place!
I moved to the Raleigh area from VA for work back in 2013, and have been a happy resident since then. I can say that moving from home to a totally different place was beyond stressfull, I was leaving my comfort zone and knew nothing about the area when I stopped in to take a tour at The Crossings. So it really took me by surprise when the leasing agent was able to do more than just tell me about the apartment but also explain the area I was moving to. I was just as impressed with the look of the apartment and the cleanliness of the community as I was the featured amenities they have, which are all free. Since The Crossings was so accommodating it really took the pressure off of a hard and fast move, I not only had my amazing apartment with cable included I also didn’t have to worry about the tedious moving essentials. Things like finding a gym, here they have an amazing workout facility including boot camp classes, or worry about getting internet services right away, the Cyber Café has Apple computers and free printing with complimentary Wi-Fi.
I set out to find a great apartment, the courteous and knowledgeable office staff is just an awesome plus! I am content here and will be a resident for a while!
I have NEVER come across a more rude and unethical landlord. This landlord has a history of lying and NOT getting work orders completed on time. One lame excuse is that they were short staffed My last work order regarding lack of hot water in the shower of the master bathroom hasn't been completed in over 6 weeks as the spare parts needed to be ordered and their way of responding to my patience is slapping me with more penalties. After terminating my lease, during the walk through the assistant property manager had hidden a tape recorder in her pocket and tried to trap me by black mailing to use those tapes in court in order to get me to pay for work order requests that were submitted during my stay for a year For instance when the flooring tiles in the kitchen were cracked and cement was peeling off causing a tripping hazard and the landlord refused to take care of it. Another resident had rented a garage below my bedroom to use it as a business to offer weight lifting training to the public and each morning I was distrubed from 6:00am onwards until 8:30pm. I had total strangers park their cars in front of my bedroom window with the boom box blaring loud music and his clients laughing and banging the heavy weights on the concrete floor.The landlord hasn't stopped this from happening and pretends to be unaware of what's going on even though the personal trainer and the landlord have known each other for many years. After repeatedly complaining with the management about the neighbors above us banging and moving heavy furniture or boxes throughout the night and the cops being on site several times, this landlord chooses to ignore the issue. In fact one evening when I was coming back home, the other female resident physically attacked me in the parking lot and I had to call the Raleigh Police department for help. I do regret signing the lease and will definitely do a background check on my next landlord before signing the lease.
Ive lived here since 2012 and have enjoyed it. The gym includes plenty of exercise equipment, weights, indoor basketball and raquetball courts... even a tanning bed if you are so inclined. I would say it appeals to any age group... and lifestyle. It has a neighborhood feel and is tucked in on the north side of hwy 70 behind starbucks. Right across the street from all the amenities of brier creek. Umstead park is also right down the street. I have had very few problems with maintenance and when I did it was attended to right away. Parking is a non issue. .. wash your own car, check out the pool, rent a garage, sign up for personal training... there is alot of stuff/life to get into. Sincerely, mr gainey
