These apartments were built two years ago and I moved in then. They are spacious and well built. They have very nice durable carpet that looks like Berber.All the major rooms have ceiling fans. I had a garden tub and my bathrooms were both luxurious and spacious. I loved the hardwood floor in the kitchen too. The drawers in the kitchen have good quality hardware too. If you ever have a maintenance problem, they will be right up to fix it. I don't like that they just come in whenever they want to if you have a problem, instead of scheduling an appointment to come fix it. The fixtures are good quality too. I loved the privacy too. Most of my neighbors were quiet and I never heard them. They are secure and I always felt safe living there. The electric and water bills were amazingly low. I never saw any bugs except a few spiders outside. There was free trash pick up, but they now charge about 9 dollars per month for that. It's still a great deal! They provide you with your own little trash can and it gets picked up 5 nights a week. You can hang pictures without fear of losing your deposit, and you will not be charged for carpet cleaning if you leave the apartment in good shape. Management is honest and will deal with you fairly. Just don't have to break your lease because you WILL pay a bajillion bucks to get out of it. You will see that when you sign the lease, so it won't be a surprise. My apartment was everything I thought it would be, except - whenever anyone had a loud party in my building, which was at least every two weeks, management would do nothing. There is a two door entry for each apartment, so I could not go knock on their door and expect to be heard over the music. Management said to call the police, like I want to do that to a neighbor. The last time I called management, I found a bag of beer cans, trash, and cigarette butts outside my door the next morning. Nice. There is a noise from 540 but that is to be expected so close to the highway. Sometimes there was so much pollution that I couldn't open my windows when it was cool. The stairwells are not swept regularly. Don't pay extra for the washer and dryer. Buy your own. The washer is too small and won't get your clothes clean. The dryer is cheap and only runs on one temperature. There have been some car break-ins, but management always reports that sort of thing to the residents immediately. I liked that, and how they always put up freeze warning signs in winter. Basically, this is a well run apartment complex, with a few of the usual problems one encounters living in an apartment. Overall, this is a very nice place to live. The location is great. I was nervous about it being so close to Capital Blvd., but that area is turning into a very nice one.

This is going to be a long review. I feel that I should be thorough and give a accurate accounting of how Blue Sky Services did our addition. Living through 4+ months of construction we have to We called them in April to receive an estimate for a couple of new rooms off the back of our home. An estimator called us right away and we scheduled to meeting him about 10 days later. Honestly we would have like to have them come sooner but according to him the schedules did not permit. When he finally came out the meeting was different than the other meetings we had from others. He spent WAY too much time "selling" their services. We were 100% on board with their process and were fairly confident in them based on seeing them around for years. Basically for us it boiled down to price and a gut feeling. Blue Skies passed our gut test. Here is something to consider. We had to pay a decent sum upfront to receive a detailed estimate. This was a bit of a sticking point for us. Their reasoning made sense. Needing to have plans to do our addition. As a consumer we had to ask ourselves if it made sense to spend money when there is a good possibility that the price would make our project cost prohibitive. We had gathered ballparks that seemed extremely low and some that were in the stratosphere.The sporadic ballparks spurred our commitment for a design build estimate. The designers did a fantastic job. No complaints. The lead designer followed through on all facets. Met us at odd hours. Really she is great to work with. We also met one of the owners during the process and he really helped wit the nuts and bolts and actually came up with some nice ideas. All in all they have the design part down pat. NOW the construction. Right from the beginning we felt as though the crews were playing catch up. A week behind then two weeks behind, our confidence waivered seriously. We talked to our p.m. every day and were assured things would pick up. Eventually Jason got the project back on track and "righted the ship". Thank the stars Dimitry and his crew showed up about 2/3 of the way. They were at work early and stayed late just about every day. They were very courteous and CLEAN. The did a great job one the trim and finishing work. A good experience. They exceeded our expectations with some bumps along the way. Our new rooms look great and we are happy. Mary
We are impressed by Blue Sky. Just finished our kitchen in the nick of time for Thanksgiving! My wife found them from our neighbors who had work done by them. So we decided to have them do an estimate for us. The sales associate that came out was Jeremy and he was great. Hew was definitely on the ball. He gave us a ballpark for our kitchen which was higher than the other estimates we got from another kitchen company but waaaaaay lower than a local big box store. Which was surprising by the way. Our experience was much like the previous posts I have read. Even though we heard good things, we were still nervous about our choice: a large investment. we were put at ease by the design staff. Eric 1, Eric 2 and Holly are as good as advertised. Cabinets look great. Tile is great. A great design and quality materials. There is not much to say about the work other than they were respectful and did a great job with details. We did have a minor problem that was eventually solved. I got home from work and realized that the sink that was already installed was not even close to the one that my wife picked out. I brought this to the superintendents attention. Come to find out it was a mistake on the granite fabricator. We did receive a call form the owner to let us know that it would be taken care of - and they did but it took a week to get the sink so that was disappointing mostly because we were sooooo close top being done! Another concern was the process. Having never gone through a renovation, I have nothing to compare it to. Numerous times it seemed like things were left unfinished or done out of order. We brought all of the items to our PM and he was always saying "we are not finished" or we are "waiting for inspections". Turns out he was right they did what they call their punched list to clean up blemishes. In the future we will have a better sense of what to expect. Just be prepared for things to go from rough and ugly to clean and finished pretty much overnight. We were definitely treated well and the follow through was great. We could not be happier with the kitchen. Thanksgiving is going to be much easier this year. Double Oven ^ definitely recommended:)
