Update 12/10/13: This clown below me is stating the obvious when construction is taking place. It's probably the last property manager posting below as they the management team were not invited back after interviewing for their positions they had, so pretty much they were fired. I've lived here for a 1.5 years and all I can say it's much better now than before. This liar below my review probably has issues due to not paying on time or something else, he or she is complaining about how much the rent is? They are giving move in discounts as well as assuring (my) rent wouldn't go up more than it did last renewal which was low. They don't want everyone just moving out if they jack the price up. Common sense would tell you that. Obviously he or she doesn't have it. The trash compactor in ALMOST all apartment complexs have issues. They even bought a new one here that locks and compacts the trash when it locks. So im not sure what the reviewer is talking about. All complex's are going to have people that find complaining to post, like above. All i'm saying is, I might renew and this is a real review NOT from the office. I will say since I recently posted, the only thing I find annoying is the new maintenance supervisor is not as good as the last one and they are slower to fix things. What the reviewer also stated, about the roads needing to be repaved is completely twisting the truth. It DID make sense that they repaved the complex in Dec. instead of month ago because of the trucks. That's a logical answer. So I disagree completely. The management team is actually good and very professional. Complete 180 from the last terrible management team. BTW, you can now pay your rent online without a fee unlike before. ----------------------------------------------------------- I'm giving this a 4 out of 5, it's under construction and they are making major improvements everywhere. I'm very impressed. Not sure why some renters are complaining to management about noise, you obviously are going to have noise for awhile, when you are redoing the entire complex!!!!! Have a open mind please!. It needs to be done. One of the reasons people were not renewing their leases was because the past owners barely kept it going and just repaired things. Did not care what the place looked like. I liked the price and the size of the townhouse was my reason. I disliked Sharon and Amy the managers. Absoutely terrible overall no need to get into details as they were FIRED. The new management team is 100X's better. I used to not like walking in the complex office, now I look forward to saying hello. The customer service alone has improved 100X's as well. That alone has me now thinking of renewing. The past management team would not take care of a major issue with my carpet (massive carpet cleaner used) from the last tenants. I brought it up to the new management team and I receive a call letting me know they are replacing free of charge and right away. It's also much nicer. They are just nice and keep their promises so far. The owners who I obviously haven't met are doing the right thing and redoing the entire complex from painting to new roofs, new siding, new pools, new playground (MUCH NEEDED) new fencing and more. I had complaints before but not now at all. Great job so far!
This is a beautiful place to live. All staff is easy to work with and I appreciate them all. I hardly remember names unless people do something to make it memorable to me and that can be something good or bad. In this case it is incredibly good...and all that I share is done with a smile on my face. With that said, I remember Jennifer who is the manager because she was extremely kind and professional when I was in need of help. I can't forget Nikki because of her professionalism and willingness to help. I made a point to find out Edgar's name because of all of his hard work. Whenever I have had something wrong during the past 2 years I have lived here he has been excellent. He has a good attitude and fixes whatever I need done. Matt goes above and beyond when providing service and he really impresses me. I love Matt's personality, he is that someone that anyone would love to have on their team. He is thoughtful, hardworking, kind and extremely professional. I haven't needed any major repairs because this is a great place but when I needed to have shelves reinforced, closet doors realigned (because I was too rough), filters changed, additional smoke detectors, extermination, an electrical glitch, my bathtub re-done, stopping of a leak...all normal things that happen in day to day life. They have been there. Nikki drew up the works orders quickly, efficiently and everything ran like clockwork each and every time. So in addition to living in a nice place you have the assurance of knowing that your needs will be met in a timely manner. The work will be completed by dependable, hardworking maintenance men with great attitudes. Attitude matters the most because good customer service is hard to find and if you are like me always appreciated!!! Thank you Bella Terrazza! I will spread my review around because I am happy. Otherwise I would not take the time so believe me, I am pleased and highly satisfied.
100 times better than Chase oaks, where to begin? Well the new company that owns this property and other's buy struggling properties. I have been here when it was Chase oaks and it was horrible inside and out as well as the management. Maintenance has always been pretty good. 1. Getting rid of Shannon the manager made things better right off the bat. 2. New Manager Dustin is the complete opposite of her. Very understanding, keeps his word. Honest and just is a good person. Seems like the rest of the office staff follows his lead. 3. Maintenance manager has changed a bit but I noticed the service is more organized under Dustin's leadership. 4. It's just CLEANER NOW! especially the dumpster. 5. The biggest one, IT'S A NEW COMPLEX. They re-did everything besides the playground. Everything is new. It took a little over a year but wow! It's so much nicer and I didn't mind paying a little more when my rent renewed. I won't be staying after my new 7 month lease is over but I would of moved out two years ago if this change(s) didn't happen. 6. Increasing the rate AND A OVER NIGHT ARMED GUARD. Helped get rid of the rift raft. I don't see shady people when i'm walking my dog at night like I did in the past. Yes I would only suggest since i've been living here is assigned parking, but there are always available spots. It's never jammed packed...so you have to walk a little bit. BIG DEAL!
From what I had heard I had great expectations but was disappointed. Despite a reservation we had quite a wait. I understand that people do not always vacate a table as quickly as expected but there is no waiting area. All seats at the small bar were occupied and the fact that they were serving food at the bar meant little, if any, turnover of these seats. Standing with a drink for 25 minutes of more was not a good start to the evening. The decor was drab to say the least and the floor, while probably clean, was worn and shabby and much in need of sanding and a coat of sealer to reduce dust if nothing else. Tables were very close together and the paper table cloth did not jibe with the linen napkins. On the positive side the menu was interesting with some interesting items. I ordered the lobster pot pie which was excellent but served barely warm. The waitress offered to have the dish "reheated". I am not sure lobster reheats very well so I settled for what I had. I will not be back and will settle for places like Ruth's Chris, the Wine Cellar or the 3 Forks in future.
In regard to the complaint filed by resident Johneisha. Resident 1st reported her AC problem to our Leasing Office on May 20, 2013 that was resolved same date. Additonal call received 5/23 late PM, due to current weather conditions our staff reponded the next business day resolving the matter. On May 30, resident called again late PM, my staff responded next business day finding the air handler stopped working which was a separate issue from her 1st call. Our staff immediately called our Vendor, part had to be ordered and matter was resolved on June 3, 2013. Due to the location of this apartment the windows could be opened. My staff was very apologetic during this time frame and offered the resident a portable unit, that was declined. Resident was then informed to open all windows and utilize her ceiling fans. Current weather conditions during this time frame were low 80's during the day with a variance of 60's in the evening. The Oaks has and will always handle AC issues and any other concerns in a professional manner and resolve the matter ASAP.
First of all, let me start out by referencing the rating that was posted by haloola99, dated 08/19/2009. That was the old management that existed when Atlantic Crossing first opened to start leasing and I agree a bad experience; however, the new management team that we have now is awesome. They are very pleasant, easy to talk to, and committed to making and having a connected community. They communicate via physical, emails, and newsletters. They often ask what could they do to make your stay pleasant as well as what ideas you may have to contribute. They host events so that the community can meet and know each other like a family. Also, maintenance is very timely and efficient. The apartments are like homes. They are color cordinated with beautiful paints and trims. The bathrooms are roomy and I love the separate dining room/living room look. The landscaping is very nice and well kept also. Thanks for reading DB
My wife and I went there for dinner after going to the movies today. We had a really great time and very delicious food there. The price is relatively inexpensive and the amount of food you get is more than enough. Come hungry and be ready to bring home a doggie bag. The waitress was outstanding and we even had an opportunity to meet and have a sit down conversation with the owner Susan. We were looking for a place to have a family and friends gathering after my daughter's graduation from high school this coming June. We believe we have now found the right place for that event. They have a wonderful banquet room set aside just for those type of events. We are really looking forward to having our family and friends join us at Cattleman's for that joyous event. Cattleman's Catch is one of northside's finest and I reccommend it to everyone...
You will not find a cleaner and quieter place than Art Museum Apts.Management does an awesome job keeping everything well taken care of. The properties down the street however have a bad reputation for their apartments being in poor condition and the police there all the time. I choose Art Museum to get away from that stuff. If you put a workorder in they fix it that day. Also the apartments have new appliances, carpet and new vinyl. I really love mine and the location is great for getting around town. So as I said the best kept secret on the Southside.
I stayed at Courtyards at San Jose while doing my internship at a law firm in downtown Jacksonville. It was comfortable and close. It took me about 14 minutes to get to work and was about 25 minutes with traffic to get to the beach. I felt at home because everyone in the office made me feel that way. I got a two bedroom furnished apartment for less than a friend of mine staying somewhere else and when she visited me she said she would have traded. I would definitely stay there again if I am ever in Jacksonville and would recommend to all friends.
I recently lived there for the past year, I felt very safe there. Any time I called about anything it was fixed, witch wasn't very often. The manager Marilyn was very nice, and went out of her way for me, I would diffenitly move back thier should I go back to Florida. For people whom, don't like anybody liveing over them this is the place. The only thing I miss was it didn't have a pool. People liveing there where very freindly and I found it easy to make friends with the other tenets, Everybody would watch out for each other, Thanks Marilyn
