I've lived here for about a year now and I plan on staying. Location is great. Staff is great! I live in a one bedroom and the space is good. Thank goodness for the elevators, I am lazy and hate stairs. I recommend Netherwood Village.
I used to like living here when they were under different management, but the new management (Monarch Properties) are absolutely terrible. We renewed our lease this summer through May, and receive a notice that our lease was going to expire in October. When we went to investigate, we found that the updated lease had never been filed. My husband had them file the new lease, but when I went to sign it, they had lost our file. No one in the office seems to know what is going on (for example when my reserved space was taken and I wanted the number for the tow truck), no one could give me the number for security. They seem pleased to spend time and money to update the pool area or to paint the laundry rooms, but there has only been one working washing machine for nearly a month (out of six machines). They claim to have security but I have never seen any patrols and when I have needed to call security for a noise complaint, the security company told me that their contract had been terminated for over two months even though that was the number listed by the property to call. As far as the apartments themselves go, my only complaint is the clientele. As it is right next to UNM, there are a large number of college students who have little regard for quiet hours. It seems to have gotten worse in the last year or so. If you like to live in a nonstop frat party with your neighbor playing call of duty until 3 am and your management being completely useless, it's the place for you!
Worst management ever, they refuse to fix anything, things get stolen all the time, and it is VERY rare that all of the utilities that you pay for work. Way too expensive and not worth the head ache. DO NOT LIVE HERE.
Cars stolen weekly... horrible management They told me my car was the first one they heard of and thats bullshit.. it happens all the time...
I've lived here for about a year. No major problems. The few maintenance requests I've put in have been dealt with quickly. The apartment was clean enough when we moved in, and the complex is pleasant. Also, the price and proximity to unm are both pretty terrific, and we're really close to a nice trail so I can go biking every day.
