What is not to love about this place? After spending nearly a month searching for housing in Detroit, the staff of Parkstone were the only ones to treat me with professionalism and courtesy. I met with Nicole, the head of Leasing for the properties, (they have more than one) and to be honest, it is one of the reasons I chose to live here. I was warmly welcomed, was well-informed, and I left feeling like I was already part of their community. She spent over an hour with me telling me about their community, the history of the property, introduced me to tenants, and didn't make me feel rushed or pressured. What a difference from rushed meetings at other properties where you barely get a handshake and a smile - if even a return phone call! This place was truly a Godsend! I have been here for close to 3 months now, and love every tiny nook and cranny of this building and neighborhood. My neighbors were all so friendly and welcoming, and CraftWork right in the building is beyond awesome, making it easy to gather for cocktails after work. (Try their fish and chips - you won't regret it!) From Andrew the Superintendent to Keith their Property Manager, and even to Zenko (?), the owner, this place has mass charm and appeal. Not regretting my decision to move here one tiny little bit!!!
I like it here. I rent a townhouse with woodfloors and updated kitchen. I like having a full basement. The office staff is nice. I have only had to call for one maintenance issue and they took care of it pretty fast. Management had a bunch of resident activities a while ago that were really nice, like giving us breakfast when we were on our way to work and movie night for the kids. They also gave the kids school supplies at a big cookout a couple of summers ago. Since I have been here a few years, I know most of my neighbors. There are mostly good people here, some not so great, but I guess anywhere you rent is going to be that way.
I loved this apartment building! I lived there for a year, but had to move due to getting a job in St. Louis. The staff were always kind and fixed things when asked. The building was kept very clean and I never had any problems with insects. The heat for the building (boiler/radiators) is controlled by the management, but I was never cold. Lastly, this neighborhood is really on the up swing. West Village has new shops and I always felt safe here! I would recommend living here!
