I was at the tournament and had an absolute blast. The Quick Feet Coach was popular among all age groups.  I really enjoyed getting the chance to see the kids improve, even during the 3 days that we were at StarFire.

Grooving to Some Thin Lizzy Jailbreak as I'm studying for a Finance test. I've never actually listened to this album all the way through, but it rocks. The guy on lead vocals is like a better Hendrix. Really cool stuff.

So, I've decided that I really dig the Foo Fighters. One of the reasons I think I like them so much is that Dave Grohl has a healthy appreciation for the best rock and roll band of all, Led Zeppelin. Just look up Whole Lotta Love at Knebworth or the version off of The Song remains the same and you'll see what I'm talking about. They actually have a two disc dvd set that covers 4 different performances and they all rock!

Really digging this new Van Halen album. I'm not a purist by any means so it makes it easier to enjoy it for what it is, a solid Rock album. I think there are merits to both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, and Wolfgang Van Halen. The bottom line is these guys were a blast when I saw them going on four years ago and it sounds like they had fun making the record which makes it fun to listen to.

It's always cold outside, what do you think this is, Miami Beach?

Update: The complex manager gave me a call after coming across my review, and after reviewing her records corroborated my account of the incident with my toilet and the work order. I appreciate her effort in trying to maintain good will, and wish the management and residents at College Park the best. This does not affect the substance of my review, or overall experience. College Park was my first apartment on my own. From that perspective it was a good fit. The barriers to entry were low, and having a second bedroom for an office, covered parking, and water/sewer/garbage all included in the cost of rent. Despite having excellent credit (high 700's), all of the other complexes I spoke with wanted a double deposit. This was not an issue at College Park. The problem was that the management was inconsistent, inattentive, and unorganized. When I moved in, the original property management firm, Tecton, was being replaced by the current one, Olympic property management. I had previously visited other Olympic properties, and they seemed to be clean, and reasonably well maintained. During my tenure at the complex, the company sent 4 different property managers and went through at least twice as many different maintenance personnel. From the beginning maintenance was a problem. The walls had obviously been dented and chipped, and had obviously not seen paint in many years. The drawers were either missing their tracks, or they were in such poor condition that they made a horrible noise and started falling off the track as they were opened. The drywall around the tub was in poor shape and in dire need of resurfacing. None of these issues were taken care of, even though I broached them multiple times. For a first apartment, these may have been minor inconveniences, but when my toilet backed up beyond what I was able to plunge, it took over 36 hours for management to send a plumber after they told me they would handle it by the end of the first day. Landlord/Tenant laws aside, there was one bathroom in the apartment, and this lack of urgency is unacceptable. Shortly after this incident, I was informed that the rent would be increasing to $890, (this amount could change with the newly itemized Water/Sewer/Garbage fee), if I opted to renew my lease. While this is in line with market value for similar properties in the area, the physical condition of my unit, and lack of any sort of response from the management ultimately led me to look elsewhere. I would stay away for another couple years and see if Olympic is still managing this property. If they are, then it will probably turn out fine. I would not rent here unless there was no other viable option.

I am not one to post online reviews. I only do it when I have been blown away by great service, or appalled by exceedingly poor service. My experience with Wilderness West apartments can be firmly placed in the second category. I wanted to live at Wilderness West, and even put down a deposit, had my application approved, and locked in what I thought was a great rental rate. Then, the property manager, Erica, elected to let the current tenant stay in the apartment less than two weeks before they were scheduled to vacate the premises. While she did ultimately refund my deposit, it felt like pulling teeth to get anything done, and I received no concessions for the inconvenience caused, (time off of work for moving, the expense of the application fee, etc). I have also reached out to the property management firm that runs this complex, (Westspear), and have received no response. While Erica, and the leasing agent, Lydia, appeared courteous at first, their conduct was utterly unprofessional. I would never do business with them, or any property owned by Westspear, and I trust you will reach the same conclusion. Update: After sending multiple emails over a period of weeks, all the way up the company directory. I finally received a response from a Mr. Aylsworth, Director of Property Management. He was rude in his response, and defended the "Professionalism" of his staff. I was also forwarded copies of my application without any attempt to verify that I was in fact who I claimed to be. The fact that my personal information can be furnished without verifying my identity is unsettling. Mr. Aylsworth also quoted the text of the application, which was not helpful. I have an understanding of the English language, and would not have pursued this issue if I did not believe that my pre-leasing agreement had been breached unreasonably. This is an organization staffed by people that understand nothing about basic customer service.

I met with the leasing agent, Rose, after a sister property breached our prelease agreement. I came back within twenty-four hours of our initial interaction, and everything that she had told me, (apartment availability, promotional discounts on first month's rent), proved to be utterly false. After speaking with a member of the management staff, the only explanation I received was that Rose was new and in need of "training". Personally, I think that is a token explanation. The complex is nice, and I even know someone who is living there happily. But, I would not want to live there because the on-site management and property firm itself have demonstrated nothing but unprofessional behavior in my interactions with them. Steer clear if you can.
