First, I wrote such review not because I had bad experience. People say only people with bad or extremely good experinece would write a review. So I want to put it upfront that I am not in either category. I only want to tell people Walnut Heights is not a good place to live: the manager on site is seldom on site. She acted not wanting to talk to people if you have already signed the lease with her. Everybody goes to office seems to be her stress or burden. So don't expect to get hold of her when you want to speak to her. She is always hiding at office with door shut and a label saying not available. Or she is not there, period.
Don't sign a year lease unless you have no choice. Chances are, you will move out once you settle in this area and when you do so, they will charge you 2-month rent, about $3,000, and another $1,000, and retain your deposit of $400. They may think of other fees to penalize you for leaving earlier than a year. Horrifying experience that many people are going through right now at Walnut Heights but just get stuck with them.
And in summer, it is ****: 112 degrees inside your apartment. Don't ever listen to the management saff at the office when they say there is air-conditioner. Yes the air-conditioner works (eating up your electric bill) but just won't be able to cool down the apartment. 112 degree is what I measured in September 2007!
So, run away as fast as you can!!!!
This review is correct in its entirety.
