This community is perfect .its so quiet and the whole community is great I can say how calm and relaxing living here is. The only issue I have are massive Squirrels which I can deal with...but great Location and the staff is Friendly And very Professional...five Stars I will def give...
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!
I have lived in Jacksonville now for 4 months and I can say that I love the area and location of The Fountains at Deerwood. My apartment over looks the lake and I love the new flooring in this apartment. Not knowing Jacksonville you'll love this property and area.
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!
my husband and i were new to jacksonville and we came across chase oaks. the office was nice and up to date so we ASSumed thats how the apt. homes would be. we asked to see one and they were all rented out. needless to say we moved in i was very disappointed in them. as weeks went by and still do go by i have issues after issues..roaches,ants,plumbing issues,cable issues,my pwer bill is alot because of these apts being built in 1978!!! i would not recommend these to anyone! once my lease is up i am out!
