Positive Apartment Reviews and RatingsNice location, but promises on move in aren't what the reality turns out to be. ( 04/12/2013 )

When my family and I moved in here last year we were really excited and happy with the new place. Large apartments, beautiful decks, and very accommodating management staff. Now, slowly things are changing. The maintenance man is great and very prompt. I like the fact that management lives onsite. Management responds to issues in a timely manner and are very polite. The problems we notice are things we asked about on move in. There is vehicle vandalism and break ins, a fire from cigarettes on the property, smoking in common areas, loud barking dogs and shouting owners, fights and shouting in the parking lot at night, and obnoxious cars. I understand that all of these things come with living in an apartment setting and there are always going to be bad apples, but they shouldn't adamantly assure people that they don't happen, then. Also, there are really no amenities to speak of. Don't let them fool you with the "playground" it is microscopic. Make sure you see it first. Also, we were shown an apartment that was in significantly better shape than the one we ended up with (wasn't ready to be seen.) Make sure you see the one you get. Also, the apartment was not very clean, We were willing to fore go most of this as unimportant, because we liked the affordable price, but now the rents have gone up a huge chunk. Our rent went up over $100 in a year. I think this is incredibly excessive, especially since we have seen no improvements or upgrades...still waiting for the fitness room. We are disappointed since that was a point we also discussed on move in is the average increases. We are considering moving, although we enjoy the apartment and some of the people. We could move and find a place with a pool, etc. for this price. I think the new management company is getting a little greedy. Just wanted to present an honest representation.

The old reviews for this apartment are no longer a representation of the experience at Swiss Gables Apartments.
New staff was hired in 2010, and the property has really turned around! The manager is a stern but fair woman who finds a good way to balance the interests of the residents with the property owner. She's fair and believes everyone should follow the rules (and let's face it, everyone should!)
The maintenance guy is easily 200% better than previous maintenance staff. Most issues are handled within 1-2 days, and longer time frames are explained for the most part.
The property has undergone a lot of work under the new manager. Balconies have been replaced throughout most of the buildings, and it seemed like there was work being done every day for most of the spring and early summer this year.
This is a quiet community, and while it may lack amenities like a pool or a gym, it's a good place to come home and unwind. I've lived here with my family since mid-2010, and I'm in no hurry to leave.
