Pros: Open concept, large ceilings, fire place, garage, carpeted, large bathroom, maintenance is on site. Cons: Parking is a nightmare! They don’t enforce the two car rule. If you have a sedan longer than a Chevy impala it won’t fit whatsoever. Don’t even think about SUVs. Office management is difficult to work with.The day we moved in our fridge wasn’t cooling down. Turns out it pretty much died and needed a new mechanism, at first. So they had to get permission from the owner of the place (never did) and their policy is wait three days before they go in themselves. Mechanism doesn’t work, and we need a new fridge. Takes 2 more days. In those first 6 days of moving in, we spent a good $30 on ice to save our food, and lost about $100 worth of food. No check or even apology to make up for something they didn’t check or even turn on beforehand. Silverfish and house centipedes galore—they only spray for spiders and ants. When we complained they said it was merely a “nuisance.” When you’re killing about 6 of them in your bedroom a day, there’s probably 100x more hiding somewhere else. We paid for at least $100 in bug guard and spraying ourselves. Office isn’t willing to work with you—we wanted to get a dog about two months before our lease was up. They still wanted the full deposit ($500+monthly). Asked if they can work with us since we were moving out anyways. Nada. Claimed it needs to be the same for everybody. FYI making someone pay the $500 when they move in versus another person $500 for 2 months left is not equal.They will make you pay for the majority of the maintenance required, or it isn’t fixed until a week later. We had a toilet running—got it fixed and then we went out of town for 2 weeks. Wasn’t actually fixed and had to pay $250 in water because they didn’t fix it the first time.Don’t expect to get your full deposit back--they will clean the carpets and take it out of your deposit, regardless if they’re clean or dirty--took out over $100.

The Ellison is infested with bed bugs! If this website allowed for pictures, I would upload them. The current property manager has 3 awards for the last 3 years for record breaking saving the company money at the expense of the residents. The "free" laundry comes with strings attached. The Ellison has had the same dryers for over 12 years. They no longer provide the temperature necessary to kill bed bugs. The bugs are hoping out of the luke warm dryers. People here are suffering. Management had an exterminator come to have "seminar" about bed bugs. He mentioned Rent - A - Center has bed bugs and hotels, the buses, and even in your car. He stated that this building is 99.9% bed bug free but later stated that the property manager is really good about calling them when they have an infestation. He also stated that he had to do more research about bed bugs after being in the business an "alleged" 21 years. I'm telling you right now, if you want to wash everything you own and live a nightmare. Move to the Ellison. I dare you. You will be more than sorry. Hear this warning!
i lived in bridgeport apartments in kcmo for years and my girlfriend lived there longer then me. i heard of bad experiences with yarco properties but its another thing to survive them. they do not care about the residents. they are only nice when they try to get u to sign the lease and after that its a nightmare. the lease says they can have entry to your apt whenever they want during office hours which leaves your place insecure while u work. its no problem for them to have entry but they barely fill work requests and its no coincidence u get your place broke into like the person knows exactly how to get in. it takes weeks or months to get bridgeport maintenance to even come by. there is no security force like they said it is on the website when i moved in. if it was then so many ppl wouldnt say they got there place broke into. maintenance is one old lazy guy who can only do so much by himself. and one other guy who is either on his phone using google to ask how to fix stuff or he is on the walkie talkie asking for help from the old lazy guy on the easiest things. they dont want u to fix things or get others to do it but they never really fix anything and complain the whole time they are in your place about not wanting to work. they get mad about having to come back to fix things they broke or made worse trying to fix. since maintenance fixes nothing the office manager uses that as a excuse not to give u your deposit back when u want to move out. the office never gives ppl the 300.00 credit for referring ppl. they pocket this money and find every excuse not to pay it to u and yarco ignores every problem u bring to them. these ppl are slumlord hustlers and con artists and only care about money. yarco will not help u if u contact them. they will only tell u they heard nothing from the office and tell u the manager says she had no idea about whatever u complain about. the manager kathy lies to u then lies to yarco about the lies she told to u then she lies to herself about the lies she told to both sides. its just one big circle of lies and games and they do it like pros. they get away with running the property illegally the way they do by bullying ppl till u move out and they just keep doing it to new tenants. they mastered the art of manipulating the system to stay in business. they all work together like one big happy money grubbing family. they will do and say anything to get your money keep your money kick u out on the street and ruin your credit then sucker new ppl in to do the same thing to them. its not worth it to live there and watch those leeches suck u and your neighbors dry and never fix things so they can charge u for it if u want to leave. its bad business all the way around. do not report complaints to yarco bc they will do nothing but act like it is all new to them every time u tell them. report yarco and there properties to the city u live in or report them to hud if u want something done about it.
An email i sent to Yarco..Slum lords if you ask me!!!Message: I have a friend that lives at Thunderbird Apartments in Harrisonville, Mo.. Her AC has been out for weeks now.. The property manager keeps telling her that they are waiting for a call back from a contractor. She once again told her maybe next week. It is hot outside and hotter in her apartment. Before this half her living room was covered in plastic for about a month with delayed construction.. The property started replacing her patio and Pulled off her to complete another building leaving hers torn up. The PM has denied all request for timely repairs or at least a discount yet she continues to have to endure hardships.I am a building engineer in Kansas City myself. I would NEVER expect one of my residents to endure the hardships this young lady has had to. I took her a small portable AC I had at my house for her bedroom but It was old and has stopped working at this point.
the worst! everyone is rude, sarcastic, think they are above you, snippy, have their noses up in the air. they are the worst to deal with! makes you want to smack them!! trust me!! they are impossible to talk to or ask a question! they dont have your best interests in mind, i dont even know why they answer the phone, they dont want to help. they treat you like dirt if you live in one of their properties while they sit in their luxurious offices!!!!!! spoiled, brats , selfish no compassion , they are in humane, do not stay in one of their properties, you will be sick trying to deal with them because they dont want to help period!!!! also Pine lakes apartments is terrible, only looks nice on teh outside that is it!!!! problems problems problems on the inside!!!!
The worst Aprtments of little rock. So stupid people. They wont care for any thing except for money. They wont even talk to people, never lift the call. Always look for money. I lease the aprtments and came out with in a month. Horrible noises int he night around 1:00 am. You will heardly get to sleep. They will give you Plasma TV if you write good review. Management is horrible worst ...Full review of The Landings at Rock CreekI talk to the property manager she is not lifting the call and she is telling you sign the lease it is your responsibility we cannot help. Stupid people. Horrible management
Disgusted with over-priced and moldy slum properties. One property didn't have flooring in the bathroom, just a subfloor. Apparently meeting building codes isn't a top priority for Terry. Terry Flood himself harassed my fiance by text because we decided not to rent an over-priced tiny house. Extremely unprofessional!!!
Parkway Oaks is alright. The community is lovely. We have lived here for over a year now. We have a functional gym, a decent swimming pool, and a dog park(although its only contained by a fence with nothing in it) for our furry friends. The maintenance crew are usually quick to fix issues around the community and in the homes, although some are not as detail oriented as others. When it comes to winter weather you might as well salt your own porch and shovel your own drive as it's usually too late by the time maintenance gets around to doing it. A couple of downfalls to note about the community is we do not have designated office hours and the streets within the community have been ruined by the construction that took place to build the community and there is nothing slated for fixing the roads. This community is ran by another leasing company called Falcon Falls and if there is a need for management we have to go there. If there are community events we are merged in with Falcon Falls so it feels as if we are Falcon Falls instead of Parkway Oaks. Management doesn't have the professionalism of other places and they don't really care how they talk to you. The rules for the community are not really enforced so you will see dog feces from time to time as not everyone cleans up after their pets, although this is probably overlooked as I stated above we do not have designated office staff on location. Overall, the community is nice. It's a quiet community overall and everyone is very friendly.
This place is the worse. Just because apartments are old don't mean they can't be nice. Nothing is updated, appliances are from the 70's and it took over 4 weeks and several phone calls to get my dishwasher replaced when they said it would be a week and repairs that are done are poorly done. Apartment was not ready, still dirty and when maintenance came to fix things, 4 out of 5 times had to call them back to do job correctly. Apartment management was no not any better. My lease was a 6 months, thank god no longer because this has been the worse place I have ever lived.
Modern, helpful, Great maintenance respond quickly and efficient
