I was not local to Corpus Christi and didn't even know how to begin to look for an apartment and to top it off I had to make finding an apartment even more difficult by owning 2 dogs and a ferret and being a full time student. I called Mary from AA Apartment Finders/Elegant Homes and she found not one, but 3 apartments that would accomodate my needs, all within my price range. I set up an appointment to view the apartments and drove 4 and a half hours to Corpus Christi to meet Mary. We totally misjudged how long it would take to get there and ended up being extremely early, but Mary accomodated us and agreed to meet with us at an earlier time and until that time other staff from AA Apartment Finders were extremely friendly and helpful, gave us a map of the city and easy directions to get to the TAMUCC Campus (the whole reason for our move). She also chatted with us and made us feel at ease. When Mary arrived, she told us that she would take us to the place that she thought that we would like the best, they were at lunch when we arrived so she took us to one of the other properties so we'd have a comparision to make between the 2, but it didn't matter, she was right, the property she thought we'd like the best, is the one we ended up getting. Not only did she drive us to show us the apartments, she also stayed with us while we filled out all the paperwork, and made sure that we asked the right questions. She also answered any questions we had about the city as well as telling us of some of the places we might want to check out for fun. She was very friendly, informative, and professional. If I ever have to move within the city of Corpus Christi, she would definately be the first person I call!

When I moved in to this apartment 2.5 years ago, I thought it was great. Now after having lived here and having my rent increase to over $1000 in the last 2 years, my opinion has changed. I have never once been late with my rent, nor do I ever have any complaints submitted about me, and yet the office staff treat me like I'm a piece of garbage. They come up with any reason to fine you without any warning, and if you call them to ask questions about it, you are treated like the scum of the earth. They have done nothing in the last 2.5 years to improve my unit, despite paying more per month. They improved the pool recently, which is nice, but completely eliminated the back pool (incidentally, the one closest to my apartment and the reason I chose this unit) and filled it in. This, I do not believe, is justification for the dramatic increase in rent. I frequently hear my neighbors' music and footsteps, but I don't mind, that's kind of to be expected in an apartment. The one good thing this place has going for it is the maintenance staff is very prompt if there is a problem. (Although when my toilet stopped working and they told me a plumber was coming the next day, I never saw a plumber and had to find, and pay for, one myself.) In conclusion, this place is nice to live in temporarily. It seems great when you first move in, and the office staff seem nice, but that all ends after you have been a good resident for an extended period of time. I guess they don't want people living here more than a few months.
I moved into these apartments on February 27th. The staff is friendly and I had no problems in the beginning. But of course with all things you pay for as soon as the check clears and the rose colored glasses come off you begin to take notice of things. The rent is not bad for the style and size of the apartment. The grounds are well maintained. The apartments are roomy and the fitness room is better than most others. The walls are not as thick as I wish they were, and I can hear my nieghbors T.V. in my dining room and I can hear my nieghbors bedroom in my own on Fridays and Saturdays. I have really goofy nieghbors across the way. The kitchen is some what outdated and I have a sugar ant problem. But it helps keep me on my toes when it comes to cleanliness. The closets are hugeand carpets are nice and soft. The walls are painted beautifully it give the place a little extra class. Me and my fiance really like this place as our "first place" together.
