If I could put no stars i would. DO NOT MOVE HERE, I REPEAT DO NOT MOVE IN THIS ROACH INFESTED PLACE. They show you a model that looks nothing like most of the actual apartments that they rent. When you first move they charge you a small deposit that is eye catching but i guess they then make up for that with all the fees that are in addition to your rent monthly (i.e you pay 1200 for rent that is really 1400 when fees are added) and this does not include your electricity, you pay for absolutely everything up to garbage that i can take out myself that only gets picked up sun.-thurs, parking that you have to battle for because there are no assigned spots (this place should be a garage-broken down cars taking up parking space), the leasing office does not return calls because they are never available, pest control forget about it (almost a year and never saw them once), people constantly moving out after they get a dose of this place and couldn't wait for their lease to be up (many empty apartments, hope there are many more until they decide to make this rathole a real home for renters), mole on walls are covered over with paint, stairways reek with pet urine (i'm assuming), its a disgrace that apartments like this is located in such a nice area (fit to be in a place like the dangerous parts of lauderhill). What you are going to pay for rent here can get you a house. CURRENT RESIDENT. CC
RENTAL RAPISTS!! I am not big on leaving reviews but for this place i absolutely have to. I beg everyone not to move in here. everything seems all nice at first but they will take you for every penny, while you are living there and during move out. They will charge you a late fee of $150.00 if you have a balance of $0.01!!! upon move out we did a pre move out inspection and was told everything is fine, nothing but normal wear and tear.That is the point of the pre-move out inspection to prepare us for any charges we will be issued and was told there will be none, maybe for carpet cleaning and that is all. Then they send us a statement 2 weeks later saying we have to pay over $1000 in damages! for a wall that has to be painted! we never even painted the place and kept everything very clean. They promised to pain balcony and never did! there are bugs there and alot of people in the area are very noisy, but that isn't what really bothers me. Its as simple as them raping you for money! I never experienced this in my life and I regret the day we decided to move in. I saw the bad reviews before move in but ignored them thinking it was just people being spiteful. I wish i would of listened!
The new management is awesome and worked hard to correct the mistakes made before them, i noticed that all the bad reviews are at least 2 years old.
Pros: kid friendly, easy going, nice management, prompt maintenance, clean grounds, location , not gated and friendly people. Updated laundry room , card reader on outside of office now ,new parking lot
Cons; small apartment, roaches , quality of people varies leaky faucets and plumbing.
Paint over everything including tub.

The only way to do laundry: Reader Card. The only place to add money, in the OFFICE they they randomloy close Early. Will randomly Close the main office at 4:00 PM (instead of normal 5:00 closing time) just so that Every Employee can be in for a conference call: MEANING: if you have 2 FULL loads of laundry in the wash and only 75 cents left on your laundry card.. THEY WILL MAKE YOU WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT DAY TO PUT MORE MONEY ON YOUR CARD TO BE ABLE TO FINISH YOUR LOADS. Moldy clothes and having to pay for another 2 cycles is BS. And even though you knock and they are all in the office, they will NOT unlock and let you in simply to add more money.. HORRIBLE management and Horrible way of treating your clients.

Lets just start with my shower broke I reported it to the office 4 days later a worker just walked right in to my house with me watching tv. didnt even knock to fix it. Since then my apartment has flooded from the apartment above and for 1 month they still havent come to fix the hole in my roof it caused. My dishwasher doesnt work at all. and now they told me to extend my lease my rent is going up to $919 a month when EVERYONE around me pays in the $800 range and they renew the same time as me.
