If some of us had known , as we were all taken by the cute duckies in the river and the bridges, the two swimming pools, the "helpful" men on the carts, the fake sheriff cars which never move from its lot....so many attractive features (except for that **** old carpeting and poor wall construction),one would think that you had found the perfect home for the (cough, cough) price.
I will give you a hint MAKE SURE THAT SECTION 8 is not a neighbor of yours, because, Guess what? The way it works is that everyone is perfectly friendly to you (and if I had a stop watch with a month and date) you'd know exactly when that friendly comraderie will end. Next, do not become too close with the sunshine women here (the ones in their 50's and 60s) because for damned certain and as large as this complex is, everything goes back to the office staff and every bit of privacy that you have ever known is out and about within casual, novelty chatter.
Suddenly, your life is known by the weirdo and by the dangerous section 8 neighbor that you have so much tried to avoid. Your neighbor is typically an 18-30 something old with a hundred rotten to the core children whom the parents will train to steal your bike (YES, A TRUE STORY) or train them to beat the rap because they are a "juvie".
Next, if you want the best drugs, just drive around the pool area and you will find an obvious dealer that the entire Schaumburg Police Department and the residents know by his first name. Never mind that he and his anti-law single mother were evicted for such gangbanging and pursesnatching behavior...never mind that because wahlah, he now lives with another section 8 family that will make M13 appear like the Avon Ladies.
Don't both telling the office or that OLD lady who has lived here for nearly 20 years because what they will tell you is that they have a right to peek into your bedroom and that you have to "catch" them doing this to call the police. Granny B (so soon as you will find out) will help you stash and obscure the smell of your joint because she is everyone's friend BUT yours no matter how quiet you are or clean you may be. In fact, many of the section 8ers hate clean and quiet minding your own business people.
In fact Granny B will tell the Section Eight Gang Busters to ROB and terrorize you and not only that; YOU WILL be confronted by a section 8er to bring it to THEIR attention BEFORE you call the police or there are unwritten rules regarding your personal security here.
Treehouse was so generous enough that they fired ALL of the security patrol that we had here (of course, they are ONLY there until that little clause in your lease says that you can break the lease within 60 days without reprimand). AND in finer print, they will re-write this paragraph and say that you will owe them the remaining amount of your signed agreement even if you do play by the rules. TreeHouse and the residents (oh) the anti-social one: for there are only less than 1/3 of the decent ones hiding in their multilocked home or off to work, hoping that their 4th patio set isn't stolen again...the thing is, primarily, they do not like decent, rent paying people. And their mission statement (again this is not written but verbally passed along by the staff and squatters) "It's not a "REAL" house, its only an apartment, so what do you expect?" Guess what dummies!1 I expect what you told me before I moved in, a place of luxury. Guess what ball breakers over act of God ripped flags from an over night storm: I expect that it is reasonably quiet should dusk approach...what I do not expect is that section "I do not give a **** if it's a silo or Wacker Dr" 8 residents NOT to stand in the hall and scream because the standard rules do not apply to you (which they don't and you are not at liberty to know that unless you research the dirty little truth about section 8). Section 8 or Section 236 residents are not easily evicted. They have the say so to select the best apartment in the complex because they are only paying 75.00 to 300.00 for a 3-4 bedroom with 2 bathrooms, chandeliers, fireplace in some, patio, playroom and much much more! Mean while, the rest of us who have retired from working with a bunch of ball suckers and schizoid DSMII residents OR those who work many, many hours and are told what kind of ****** little apartment you will get, ARE by and large treated like the Village of the Damned.
And you better not call the police because your neighbor will cover for the criminal and may even tell the criminal who will rob you out side your door, where you live. The neighbors more like prisoners and the criminals who are (AND GET THIS BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER EVER KNOW THIS) NEVER checked for a prior back ground. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO; that means if your neighbor is a pedophile and your little girl is out swimming and his hommies are licking their chops at her little friends, this is called lunch time. No one hears you scream and NO one sees anything. Because the urban hood has now become SUBGHETTOBURG.
This is not racist either, this is TRUE. Unreported rapists climb onto the 2nd floor because they know that you chose the second floor to avoid being raped (and this is word of mouth to where you may only find out through a police blotter from your local department). Schaumburg Police will do their best at times, but they are wickedly tired of this over night ghetto siege/coup. They really try and they really follow up as best as they can.
The only group worth rooting for are the SPD because they care yet at the same time, this nightmare never ends for them and they seriously need a raise when they are called here to check out the near murder calls which they recieve. Many are leaving when the lease is over and they do not care if you have paid on time every month or if you are a really neat person who deserves the "advertised stretches" that they fell for. In fact, no one really likes you if you are a decent person.
You are hated for being different. You are an annoyance for looking professional. You are fodder if you have a nice car or nice looking friends (in fact, as last year reported, they will hit your friend with their raggedy stolen car.) Anyone can move into TreeHouse as long as you have a voucher, rich parents or an agreement with an organization or college to pay their rent.
And if you are any of the above, you can **** on the evergreens all year long (actually urinate, I have seen this one). Furthermore, you can have sex (witnessed this UNFORTUANTELY and the sounds are disgusting) right underneath YOUR bedroom window and if you complain, it means that you were jealous because you did not get any (per what the yardstick man and his soon to be fake wife said---yes, he actually said that they were having sex under the bedroom window because they are about to be married). Are you drawing a picture of the moral compass that you will be dealing with here.
This was a mistake and we are ashamed and now we cannot be fooled again because we know the difference. It is WORTH paying the extra 50.00-100.00 to avoid this. You are better off buying a house (yes even as the market stands today) because ALL of the complexes either have grandfathered section 8ers who will never leave but will breed and breed more rotten ******* embryos OR you will be engaged to an ex-car sales man and be psychologically fit to be tied.
Your home is truly the last place where you should feel and be safe after all the BS that you deal with in a supervisor or the god awful traffic , where starbucks and IPODS rule the highway and where a turn signal light does not exist. You deserve to go home and look forward to going home without 12 gang members standing in a side to side line barricading the main entrance.
You have the right after paying so much money, to not fear walking you dog at night while thinking of being mugged by your neighbor who lives in YOUR building. Your home regardless if it is an "HOUSE" or just an apartment...is your home. I remember the past 12 years ago when I felt like that. I never felt scared, but I was reasonably cautious. I never felt intimidated while picking up the mail and there are 4 gang bangers with eyes like a shark just hating you because, for god's sake, you are not them.
And meanwhile, your safe building staff live in Lake Bluff or Barrington and have to deal with your stupid complaints. We are a damned nuisance to them because it is more important to gossip and drink coffee and play cards on the computer than to deal with you life endangering problem. The only time real action is taken is when your car's stick has curled up and fallen on your back seat. Right there you are hated forever. But 50 cents, M13 and crips (YOU are the TOAST of the Town...be certain that you will come over some time and **** on my lawn chair because I am beneath you for paying real money to live here. Gosh..how dare I?
OH BY THE WAY THERE IS A "FAKE TREEHOUSE RATINGS UNDER 3900 BUSH ROAD on this very website. This is to show you how clever they are in not taking responsibility for your safety. Also look under " TreeHouse" 3900 Brush Road because both ratings and complexes are the same. IF THERE IS A 3900 Brush Road listing it is a typo THERE IS NO 3900 BRUSH ROAD BE CAREFUL
