I'd first like to say Samantha Spector is completely amazing! Not only helped me look for a apartment but when nothing was coming up in my price range found me roommate's to move in with. As well was their when I had tenant questions. So if your ever looking for a place give her a call she'll do…

DO NOT LIVE HERE! Terrible management. The worst I have ever encountered. They are totally inflexible and unhelpful and downright liars. I purchased a reserved parking spot. When my car was in the shop, I had to borrow another car and parked it in my spot. They had it towed because it did n…

There is absolutely no security at these apartments, and management is terrible. These apartments could potentially be great, if only the security doors worked! Tenants were promised that security cameras would be installed outside (that was promised over a year ago), and still...no cameras. H…

I've lived here for a year and am about to leave. Lots of great things about this place, so I'll be perfectly honest. Here's what I have to say.First, the good: -About half of the office staff are super friendly and helpful. -Considering the location and size of the complex (it's pretty large!), it's very quiet and feels safe (note that I'm a young single girl, living alone). -I've never had a problem with rowdy or obnoxious neighbors. -I like my apartment itself - it's old, but has a good layout. Great square footage for the price.-Assigned, covered parking with towing enforced.Now, there are a couple deal-breakers going on...-Maintenance. They're good about fixing small things. But all the apartments FLOOD HORRIBLY EVERY TIME IT RAINS! And every time I call to report it and submit a maintenance request; nothing is done. ONCE they replaced a portion of my carpet pad. But there is permanent damage, including rotted baseboards.-Yes, there are tons of roaches (and spiders!!), especially in the summer. The pest control makes no difference (I found bugs days after they made us move all our furniture to spray). The buildings are old. Bugs get in.-The OTHER half of the office staff are rude, unprofessional, and disorganized. They lose/forget important things, and aren't very good with package slips. I notified the office staff weeks in advance of my move-out date. I was assured it would not be a problem (extending my lease a couple weeks). Not long after, I received a call telling me that I needed to move out because another tenant was due to move in. When I tried to reason with them, explaining my prior conversation, the office staff HUNG UP ON ME. I had to call back twice and visit in person to straighten things out. I've enjoyed most of my time living here. Never felt uncomfortable. If it weren't for such deal-breakers, I would totally stay. If you can put up with them, it's worth your money. Can't beat the location! Just remember, the rent is cheap for a reason.
Talking about The Enclave at Copper Field Apartments, I would say three points: Great Customer Service, flexible Rental Policies, and Care for Residents.1- Vanessa Flores, Director of First Impression is the real Brand Ambassador for this apartment complex. Nearly one year ago, when I looked for an apartment that suited my family’s budget, I found the Enclave at Copperfield which was near my previous apartment, just 3 minutes away by car. When I first met Vanessa in her office, she offered me with her genuine and natural smile.Knowing my need to look for a 2-bedroom and 1-bathroom apt, she actively introduced me everything related to this type: from the surface, apt comforts, form of monthly payment to other fees, parking and other public benefits. She was very proactive, kind of “thought reader”. I just sat there speechless and listened with satisfaction. The conversation took place in a natural manner making me feel comfortable and happy.2- Flexible rental policy is another great point that I found at The Enclave at Copperfield. While other apartment complexes around rigidly ask customers to show a copy of apartment insurance policy and electricity lease, these are not initial requirements here3- The Management Team really cares for residents. Parking overloaded is always a lasting problem for nearly all apartment properties. To deal with this “lasting” problem, the Management coordinated with Capitol Wrecker, a towing company, to control the number of cars parking daily. All residents’ cars should be registered, otherwise, they will be towed away at the owner’s expense. Thanks to this action, all “unregistered cars” suddenly disappeared from the parking area, returning empty parking rooms for entitled residents.I feel happy to sign another one-year contract with the Enclave at Copperfield. This is a great place to live, although it is just temporary. I strongly recommend the Enclave at Copperfield to those who may be interested in.
I have lived at Chateaux since 2007. I love it here! Why? Because your not just another tenant or an apartment number. They know you by your first name. They care about their residents as if they were family. As a tenant/ office team we've helped other tenants having difficulty in one way or another whether it be a ride to the grocery store or Lakewood to checking on a neighbor, friend, fellow dog walker you haven't seen in a few days. The familiarity is what attracts me and keeps me here as a tenant. My prices go up like everyone else's and I vow to do whatever it takes to be able to continue in my beautiful cozy apartment. I have lived in four units and it's my experience no two units are exactly alike! Unique! I have never been robbed and my vehicle has never been broken into but it doesn't surprise me that it has happened. It's happens everywhere folks. There are some lazy pet owners that do not pick up after their dogs BUT there are dog bag stands all over the property. I have no problem picking up another dogs doo doo as well as my own dogs doo doo but hey that's me! Laundry rooms are everywhere. Maintenance comes in a timely manner. Often you'll find me in the clubhouse eating popcorn provided by Chateaux, surfing the internet on one of 6 computers. Gloria, Wayne, Eric, David and the blonde lady are wonderful. I love them and call them my friends
I do remember what they were like before the renovation and still I will stand behind recommending them to anyone else. I have had 3 friends move in the apartments who have either married or moved away for work and we still talk about the days we all lived there. I constantly have comments from visitors on how quiet and peaceful the apartments are. And I agree I live near the castle and I am not sure if I even have neighbors since I dont hear them. With that said, it has very friendly neighbors and it never fails that I am being waved hello or someone is saying good morning/afternoon as I pass them by when I am walking around. (I dont know them but its always nice to see a smiling face) I am not sure how many kids live in the complex but I have not seen many, but I can count them with one hand. DOGS! very cute ones too! they have dog friendly areas all around the complex. I know what the apartments looked like before and after and I can say they are a HUGE improvement, aesthetically speaking. Its unfortunate that some have not had my experience with these apartments, all I can say is that I have lived in other apartments and NONE have been perfect, but if you are looking for longevity and place to call home. (like I have) Chateux has it!
If you are considering this Villages of Briar Forest as your next apartment complex you may want to check out their policies on parking before you sign a lease. All visitors who do not have a permit permanently affixed to their car must park outside of the gates provided that they are lucky enough to get one of the few parking spots, approximately twenty parking spots for the over two hundred units in the complex, that are outside of the gate. Which means all of your guests will have to enter a code and walk through a large, dimly complex to reach your apartment. If they have to carry anything with them at all you will likely be meeting each your guests at the front gate and transporting them back to your apartment. Even if you have a frequent guest that you have a permit for they may have trouble parking anywhere near your apartment as the spaces within the gates are very limited as well, especially if you live towards the back of the complex. Should your guest decide to drive into the complex and park without a permit be forewarned that they are quite likely to be towed to the tune of $225 for a single day in the towing storage lot. If you do not plan on having anyone come to visit you this may be the apartment complex for you.
I am a single father with a 5 year old daughter and we have recently moved into 3737 hillcroft apts. I am pretty picky when it comes the safety and and well being of my child's surroundings and place we will call home. After researching and viewing many apts in the area and other apt complexes around I chose 3737 hillcroft apts. the office staff is very friendly and welcoming. Gabby Cardenas was an angel in the whole process of me determining where I was going to decide to make a home for me and my daughter. She went above and beyond the expectations I had received from other leasing offices and apt complexes in helping me get what I WANTED instead of what I had to settle for. (Unlike many other complexes I had previously viewed. She delivered on every promise that was made and some. She is a part of the NEW management company, Presidiumre, that has taken over on the complex and are doing great things already with the property. Can't wait to see what the future holds for me and my daughter as residents of this property. Highly recommend you give her a call and see what I am raving about. Make sure you ask for Gabby and I am sure you will be happy with the results!!
My wife and I moved into this property back in 2012 for our first apartment together. It was operated under different management at that time and although they were all friendly, the Berkshire Communities (current staff) is very professional and definitely easy to trust them as your landlord. In three years we never had a service request go longer than 48 hrs to repair (emergencies were handled immediately as well). The neighbors are all nice and ideal for any individuals whether your single, married, have a family, etc. Their pet policy is aligned with other properties and they provide many dog waste baskets around the grassy areas on property. The only negative comments we could make is the main gate malfunctions occasionally so be cautious of it's actions, as well as their could be more lighting throughout the visitors / 4th floor of the garage and exterior parking spaces inside the community. The property was very safe and the area is perfect if you're looking to live inside the 610 loop / Galleria / Bellaire area. Overall, my wife and I would recommend this property to anyone and we really enjoyed our stay at the Estates at Bellaire from July 2012 - Nov 2015.
In all the years I have lived here, I have never had my car or apartment broken into. I realize I am responsible for my own safety. I do feel safe living here. But I also realize that I live in the 4th largest city in the U.S. and crime is everywhere. You just do what you can to not become a victim. I urge everyone that reads this to go to the Houston Police Departments website and pull up crime stats.for different zip codes and include 77056. You will discover that every part of Houston has crime. I have friends that live in the Woodlands, The Heights, Sugarland, Katy, Meyerland, and here, and they tell me the same thing, CRIME IS EVERYWHERE! Again, you do what you can to protect yourself because no one can promise you that they are there to protect you. When people here have had their cars broken into in the past, it has been reported that they had left expensive items in their vehicles. I really think it is unfair for people to make my home sound like the ghetto when it is not. Chateaux Dijon is a wonderful place to live. Its sad that some people have personal issues that make the whole world look sour in their eyes. Thanks for your time!
I moved into Chateaux Dijon apartments back in 2011 when I relocated back to Texas. I lived there with my young son for 2.5 years. I loved it. I felt safe and it was within 2 miles of my job and my son's school. The staff was always nice and helpful, probably because I was always kind and respectful to them. The few and minor maintenance issues I had in those few years were resolved within a day or two. I had an opportunity to move into a house with a yard, in the same neighborhood, so I gave notice and moved out.Fast forward one year later, my landlord decided to increase my rent dramatically in keeping with the current market value of the neighborhood. It was an amount I could no longer afford, so I decided not to renew my lease. When deciding where to move to, and without a second thought, I applied back at Chateaux. The staff was so happy to have us back, and gladly showed me several units available. I opted for a larger town home this time around and I'm happy to report that I'll be moving back in early February. Although I'll miss having a yard, I know I'm moving back to a place that felt like home, with nice people around me.
I just recently moved to the community and so far things are not so bad. At first I was a little unsettle because the apartment I moved in was not what I expected in view of the model I had seen. However, after talking to Maria and completing my walk through sheet, maintenance came out remove the cabinet put more flooring, painted the wall, moved a couple of other things around and made some minor repairs I like the apartment much better. Plus I have a view of the pool. The home is smaller so I had to downsize but I probably needed that anyway. Maria was very helpful and very nice through the process. So far its been quite. My complaints are that I have to buy ice or ice trays because I don't have a frig that makes ice which I think is outdated. My upstairs neighbor really walks hard (LOL) I am downstairs. The entry gate is always open which means anyone at anytime can enter. And at sometime in future management should consider putting washer/dryers in the units. Otherwise I don't have anything negative to say about Fairfield Trails, I have only been here for a couple of weeks. Thanks
