My apartment may be small, but I have good neighbors and only having to pay electric is really nice. Not that long after I moved in, I lost my job and was on unemployment and had trouble paying my rent on time. The office worked with me for several months making arrangements to pay late so I could get caught up. I felt really bad about my situation, but the office was as supportive and kind as they could be. Parking isn't too bad. I just go with the free parking and sometimes I have to park a couple blocks down when I get home really late, but I still usually get a spot in the lot next to my building. The elevators have been so much better since they updated them. I used to have to take the stairs frequently, but a couple years ago they redid them and it's such an improvement. I like the area, too. There's the park across the street and there are several restaurants nearby and a corner convenience mart a couple blocks down. It's pretty easy to get around.Overall, I'd say this place as been a great place to live
Great food wonderful service we love it Breakfast all day we love it Lots of choices We love the chicken fried steak and a T-bone steak was great my kid had a Mickey Mouse pancake was perfect thank you
I have lived at Carrington Place for almost 5 years. I love it. It feels like a home with my own front door (no stairwells) and an attached garage. I never hear my neighbors and I know most people that live around me. They plan resident events like breakfast, bingo and bunco. The pool is gorgeous and they have done a lot of upgrades. It is a great value for the money.
The most disgusting place I have ever rented. The property is dirty with dog poops everywhere. The move-out experience is worst. Expect to pay hundreds even if you keep the house in original condition. Stay away from this place.
Great service and food. Great variety of sandwiches and bowl dinners.
I would not recommend Eddie Davis to anyone, there are several other companies out there that will get you on the MLS and actually help the real estate transaction. Eddie is awful about providing information and unless you've sold real estate on your own before you're not going to have a good experience because you wont know what questions you need to ask or what you'll be expected to do. Every time I asked Eddie to make a change or initially list something he would make a material mistake (put the wrong listing price, leave out portions of the description, etc..).
I don't even know where to start with how bad this apartment complex is ran. No idea who actually owns the place to complain about office staff or problems not being solved. The newest office lady Norrisha is just a walking attitude problem (mainly just towards other women) who claims no responsibility for the mistakes she makes. Coming into apartments with no notice and not even knocking before entering. Their pest control consist of them coming in to basically just be noisy because they don't spray or anything. They redid the parking lot but I'm not sure if I would prefer the potholes over the fact that you could possibly hit another car driving down the parking lot because there isn't enough room between the back and front parking to get through. They redid the siding over the summer (which is already falling apart) of all the buildings and phone service is beyond horrible. To make a call you either have to stand by the back window or go outside no other way around it. And forget about getting incoming calls. It's pretty much a legit crackhead breeding ground. Faulty outlets and light fixtures not being fixed. They state in the lease there is neighborhood patrol or crime watch which is a joke because pretty much every older model car over here has been broken into along with some apartments. Any apartment that has to emphasize the buddy system is probably a horrible place to live. I full heartedly regret moving here.
There is a reason why the best reviews about Yarco properties come from their own employees and the worst come from their residents. This alone should be revealing as to how they do business. They are a family run operation and know nothing about professionalism , decency , compassion or intregity. They only care about your money and will say anything to keep getting it from you. They act like the mafia when you try to get them to fix things and definitely when you try to leave the property. I lived on a Yarco property for years and in those years I had been flooded 3x and after each time I had no new carpet only replaced padding under it. I had no new paint on my walls , the countertop damage from a previous tenant was spray painted over but never repaired , I was disrespected by the manager and her staff , I was burglarized , my car was vandalized , cockroaches invaded my apartment from my neighbors place and I had to self exterminate cause the complex manager refused to send an exterminator over. 2 months later during my inspection she tells me my apartment smells bad and I say it is the bug bombs since you will not send an exterminator. Her exact words were 'I will send the exterminator when I feel like it'. I asked if she thinks that is how a professional is supposed to act and she tells me 'you know what? don't get beat up'. Like really? I contacted corporate to tell them that this is how the property manager of Bridgeport Apartments in Kansas City treats residents and yeah she is still working there. That should say more than enough about how Yarco really feels about their property tenants.Whoever works for Yarco and is replying to these reviews can save the energy and not waste my time with the same crappy response you are giving to everyone else. No I am not going to send you an email that we both know will not get a response. I have called and emailed Yarco multiple times since living on your property and only one call from Yarco was made to me. Why was it made? It was made because someone at Yarco heard from the property manager and she lied about everything. The Yarco representative only called to insult me and deny my claims. Then had the nerve to say 'I don't need to talk to the manager of your complex cause I know her very well and she would never do that'. I said I had proof of everything I was reporting to Yarco and these slum lords did not even want to see it. I swear that if I could have afforded to break the lease and if I had anywhere else to go after my first year I would have been off of their property. I pray for the day that unprofessional people like these and their properties are out of business. I do not recommend any respectable person to rent from these people. I promise that if I could afford an attorney I would be fighting you all in court for all you have done to me and my children.
Paying for the location, but it was worth it.Apartments are decent-the carpet is cheap-elevators are very small-staff is nice-maintenance is quick -no central air-had a little roach problem but maintenance fixed this quickly as well as our AC unit going out -AC unit does not keep apartment really cool during the summers-pipes in shower/tub start to smell sometimes-lots of character, closet space and cabinet space-packages are always kept in a secure area-noise wasn't an issue other than renovating the apartment above us as I work nights this became a problem but only lasted a few weeks -washers area in basement and is not the cleanest space-residents left doors to building open a lot so there was some theft from the basement storage units but felt safe a majority of the time-Lived on the first floor, if windows were open ward parkway was always noisy, but this was expected-neighbors were mostly young and kept to self, a few creepy older men lived here and made me a bit uncomfortable-PARKING IS SO EXPENSIVE, DO NOT PAY FOR IT never had an issue finding spots in the 2 hour limit area, they never ticket for being there unless you don't move your car for 2 or 3 days. Parking garages SUCK you don't get reserved parking and end up parking on the 3rd or 4th floor, and it is very sketchy at night!!! If you are going to pay for parking just buy the spaces through the apartment, they are a little more expensive, but at least you will always have a spot-Old white man does walk around apartment at night... Apparently he is "keeping us safe?" I guess it was "Security?"-All of the restaurants and bars are right out the door so no need to have a DD-security walks around the plaza all night so I generally felt safe walking to the apartment at night-Apartments are what you would expect, they are cute and I would do it again, worth the experience! DON'T REGRET ANYTHING, moving out for a bigger space, but it was well worth the experience.
This is not Jamaican or Caribbean food. Not fresh and beef patties are frozen/store bought. Poorly cooked rice and peas. Flavors were not right. Maybe this passes for good Jamaican food in Kansas City, but where I'm from this place would be out of business. Very disappointing.
