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.
reading the below reviews worried me a little about the homes in the community when we were searching for a new place, but we looked anyways. at first when I read these reviews, I was very worried about the sales people (the first review obviously written by centex, and the rest gave poor marks) my experience with Blair has been exactly what I expected from buying a new home. she knew what she was talking about, and when she didn't she found an answer for us. my only complaint is that there were no wooded lots when we bought, and right after we committed to a lot, they opened some up, not a huge deal. Joey (contractor) is knowledgable, and we would recommend the neighborhood to our friends. amenities are great! wish there were more floor plan options around 3000 sq feet though (only 1)
My husband and I have been looking to build a new home in the area and after meeting w/ a lender and an agent at Highland Creek in Raleigh, NC there is no doubt that this will be our next home. The agent on duty took her time to show us the homes in the neighborhood and then met w/ us again to go over upgrades that we would want within the home giving us a ballpark figure of what we would be looking at price-wise. And to make things better all that we want actually ended up being in our price range (note: we are a one income family). I would highly recommend Highland Creek if you're considering building your next home and if you're not then just stop in and meet some wonderful people (sales agents) they have working there.
