we have enjoyed our self's here since we have been here going on 3years now we are both on retirement my husband is disabled we have had no problems.
I am a single lady with no small children or pets. I had long awaited to move into this complex. Only to be sorely disappointed within a month with how the people living here had such unfriendly attitudes. I noticed no one interacted with one another, no sense of what neighborly means. Now I understand why.. The sweet ladies across the hall from me, have two barking dogs. Mind you, I realize that, it isn't the dogs' fault. The owners allow them to continue to bark even after being told to be quiet. It was getting to the point that I couldn't even mix the creamer into my coffee with a spoon, the noise would make the dogs bark. AND It's the high shrill yipping kind of bark, if you can imagine it. I finally, after calling the office twice, called the police. It has gotten somewhat better. Then above me I have a family with 3 boys. Mind you, this is a 3 story building and they place a family of five plus, (they often have crews of kin/friends that stay) one the top floor?!?!?! Now that makes SENSE!!!! These people don't know how to walk when indoors, they stomp, yell, slam doors, jump off furniture, and bounce their basketballs on the floor, walls and balcony. The children have no respect of others property and they get to prowling around, because of no place for them to play, into the ground floor tenants flowerbeds etc and make a mess. The lower tenants say something about the kids' behavior to the mother, and she tells her kids to never mind, they're just mean and old. I have called the office and asked them first of all, why they would put a large family on the 3rd floor? Also asked if they would please, please, talk to the family about the ruckus they were/and still are creating. Kathe, the prior office manager, basically said, "too bad this is a a multi dwell and what do you expect for the amount of rent you're paying!!?!?!" REALLY??!?! I said something to the mother of this family, about keeping the stomping down, and she told me to "f*%k off!" Okay, that makes for a hostile living arrangement now. I have to worry every time I go out the door to see if I get jumped like the woman that lives below me did over a misunderstanding. The attacker is the sister of the mother that lives above me. The purpertraitor is now is out of jail, and coming back around here when she's not suppose to be. Tell me, I am living in south Holland, right?? Or South Chicago? I asked the office manager if I could please move into another apt., preferable a top story, when my lease was up. One that would accommodate my needs, and they told me I needed a doctor's note. Seriously? OKayyy, back in high school we go! Yesterday, I returned from a trip and had found food trash on my balcony that had been dropped from above. The Chuck Cheese Crew strikes again.. Tomorrow the office staff is having a "meet and greet" party. I think I will pass. Do not move in here, unless you like ignorance, noise and angry attitudes. All are which sadly contagious if you let them be. I try hard to not let the crap get to me. Its just hard. I was so happy when I moved in here.
This place is ridiculous I would never wish this place upon anybody. I have had nothing but problems since living here, the maintenance man is a complete pervert and I have brought this to managements attention and they have done absolutely nothing. I have been told by more than 3 other people that they have had problems with him as well and to me that is un-called for. I have had a hole in my ceiling for over 2 years and a screen door that doesn't work. I did have a roach problem which is finally under control but it took quite a while. I would gladly move out of here if I wasn't on a rent program. But god knows I am looking!!! I feel more than un-comfortable knowing this guy has a key to my apt. I hope and pray that someone reads this by I highly doubt they will for they don't seem to care what goes on in this apt complex!!!
Where my babe lives for the time being.
