Intro to College Moving: 101 »
We've put together a small list to get you started on your journey -- and the first step starts with a single box.
My experience at Lake Jasmine has been a positive one for the most part. Pros: It's quiet despite its busy location. The neighbors keep to themselves. The clubhouse, pool, and view of the lake are very appealing. Also, Lake Jasmine staff is starting to host events for the community. The first event is a movie night on the lawn in lieu of Halloween. I am excited to see the turn out. The apartment (1-1) that I live in is a decent size. Security is on site at night with proper safety equipment. The front gates work properly. The gate is only open during the school hours for the children who take the bus. Maintenance staff is very nice and get the job completed within 24-48 hours. Laundry facility is decent. I never had an issue with management. They ALL work super hard to make sure everyone walks away happy! I LOVE THEM! ^_^ Cons: There are stray cats that roam around and sometimes at night you will hear them fighting. In order to get a laundry card u must pay $5 but that's only for the card. There is no money added to it. Then you must add $5 to the card to use it. The machine only takes $5 bills. Packages are not accepted by the office. The leasing office doesn't answer the phone often but if you go to the office, they will be more than willing to help. Sometimes the office will close early or something will happen where the whole complex is impacted (i.e. water shortage) and there is no way of letting everyone know. I wish the staff would gather residents email address (or robo call everyone) to notify us of quick updates and changes in the complex. I just think that there should be a better way of communicating with residents. Honestly, regardless of where u go, there will be an issue. There will be something that makes you feel upset. However, in comparison to other places I have heard about, I feel pretty happy with my stay at Lake Jasmine Apartments. There have been a lot of positive changes to this community and I feel like it will only get better with time.
I am so glad that I found this company! I recently moved to Orlando and viewed over a dozen rental homes managed by at least 4-5 different companies. I was extremely underwhelmed by most of the properties and many of the companies were rude and unprofessional...except this one! I worked with a realtor and she is absolutely wonderful. She is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, and she went above and beyond by letting me view a property after hours because it was the only time my husband could see it with me. She also suggested places where I could find appliances and was in constant contact via email when I was out of state finishing the move. Since signing on to the lease, they have impressed me even more with how quick, efficient and helpful everything has been. We absolutely love the house that we are renting and are so happy to have had such an easy time with the move, largely due to the Property Management Specialists.
I lived here for a year and recently moved out to be closer to work. In the year that I lived here, I had absolutely zero issues. Management is always quick to reply when you need them, and always eager to answer any questions you may have. I've read some comments about mold, but this isn't something I ever had to deal with in the unit I rented. Mind you, I moved in knowing that people were complaining about it, but I typically keep a clean place and the A/C is always on. It's a quiet little community with some really cool people and the price, in my opinion, is pretty reasonable considering where you are. There was a concern with people not cleaning up after their pets but this was taken care of in a pretty clever way. All in all, I would recommend this place for small families, couples, and roommates looking to live near the Baldwin Park area.
