I lived in Avenel at Montgomery Apartments for over 4 years. The rent was high (I paid around $2,000 per month) but it was the best place to live in the area. This was so, until the new owner and new management came in around 2014. All service went south. The people at the office made you know that they were the owners and you were living in their property, although you are paying one of the highest rent in the area. The problem started in October 2014. “MICE” and lots of it. I lived on the 3rd floor. I made the complaint to the management office and their response was that the "MICE problems are not emergency" and that I will have to wait to their once a week routine exterminator day, which is every Wednesday. My problem started on Thursday, so they wanted me to wait until next Wednesday to have an exterminator in my apartment. I laid out the mice traps. I caught more than 12 mice in less than 10 days. Every time I caught a mouse, I would take it down to the managing office and send photos to the owners. Their answer for the entire week was “Exterminator will be here on Wednesday”. I had many arguments with the owner’s office and was able to terminate my lease early. I cannot recommend this apartment to anyone. Please see photos.
Definitely the newest and most desirable apartment complex in the county - although very steeply priced than other communities. Having stayed in this complex for almost 2 years I can say there are a few complaints - but not many. The pros: - Great fitness center with individual monitors for each treadmill/elliptical machine. - Great business center w/4 computers - Nice splash pool to beat the heat in the summer. - The maintenance staff are always on time - all issues have been resolved in the same day if it was an emergency. Else definitely in 2 days. - New complex so less calls to maintenance staff. - Fairly pleasing Property Management staff.(I haven't had any issues with them so far) - Lots of social events organized by the office staff(although that number has dwindled after hope left) - Convenient location to shopping (Montgomery mall just across the street) The cons: - Garbage disposal not at convenient location - Too many pet owners (if you have pets this is the place to be!!) - Not very friendly occupants - Steep rent (1400 - 1800) - Some security issues (broken into houses and cars -but that's true for any place)
Great people. Beautiful apts and great area. Very professional
