I have lived here coming up on my third year! Briarwick is an amazing apartment complex. They always respond to any concerns within 24 hours, and any work orders are completed quickly and professionally. I love having my own washer and dryer in the building and the upkeep of the grounds is awesome! I have never had an issue with snow being in my way! I would highly recommend Briarwick for your next apartment building!! Only downfall, is rent increases yearly, it's getting a little pricey for the area!
I am a old person. I told the manager about my cheap carpeting is coming up in just 2 years and it's right where I walk all day and every day, he said he would fix it but never did. If I fall I'm going to sue him. There are no lights when it's dark except if and when residents have their outside lights on, that's all. Don't go in the middle of the apartments out on the glass because there aren't any lights at all so someone could be waiting for you!!!! Also you have to go swimming in the dark, so very NOT SAFE!!!!. Watch out for the drunks that drink and smoke AT POOR SIDE!! But that's because they're the managers drinking buddies at the Packer parties that are in the club house. Which by the way isn't in your rent because if you want to use the club you have to RENT it for $100.00 plus a check for $500.00 just in case you break things. And make sure you clean it. There's a daily cleaning crew but they can't do it you have to. The basement where your storage is it's damp and dirty, pipes leaking but still didn't get fixed months later!!! Underground parking but of course you have to pay extra for it!!! The manager is mean will talk you down if you make him mad!!!!! Rain Gutters make a lot of noise right next to the bedroom window also right out your door, so watch out!!! This use to be a nice place to live before the new owners/management!!! You can live here if you don't have any where else to go and if you want to pay more rent every single year after year!!!
We lived at Briarwick for 2 years and only left recently due to job relocation . The staff was always extremely helpful, friendly and handled things quickly. The area is great...we loved the large green space and the pool area. Also enjoyed that they offered events for the apartment community. Definitely would recommend Briarwick.
Overall, this is a nice apartment complex. The location is great; freeway access is pretty easy and there's plenty of shopping and dining within a 5-10 min drive. The grounds are well cared-for, and nicely landscaped. Over the winter, snow was cleared very promptly. I haven't had any safety concerns while living here. The apartment itself is fairly spacious with the exception of the kitchen which is galley-style and also houses the washer/dryer. There is not much kitchen counter space, even less if you choose to own a microwave. The walls and floors are well-insulated against noise from the neighbors; occasionally you can hear cabinets banging shut or the washer/dryer running, but I have never heard voices, music or TV noise coming from neighboring units. The baseboard radiant heat is effective, although a little noisy at times. It was very convenient to have the heat and water included in the rent. The electric bill averaged $40-45 a month through WE-energies. I have not made any maintenance requests during my 10 months here, so I cannot comment on the responsiveness of the maintenance staff. Basic upkeep appears to be taken care of, though: Roofs and gutters have recently been replaced and several driveway repairs were made last fall. My biggest complaint is that odors seep into my apartment from other units, and I frequently get wafts of stale cigarette smoke or cooking odors.
I lived there for 8 years. In that time, management has responded to an emergency plumbing need at midnight, taken care of repairs within 24 hours, works hard to remove snow, and keeps the grounds in beautiful condition. I have never had any problems with any of the neighbors. People keep to themselves or respond in a friendly manner when spoken to. I have never been spoken to rudely by management. My only caveat is that the rent is a little high for the condition of the apartments. However, this current management is replacing roofs, adding gutters, and re-grading areas that flood. I can only assume that they will be updating apartments as renters turn over. I got everything I needed and wanted from this company. I recommend it.
