So many things wrong with this apartment. Its ghetto! There's always a roach problem, mold, the wiring is shot, the lights flicker, the kids run wild outside and don't look if a car is coming, if you live upstairs and your moving going back and forth from your car to get things and there are kids on the stairs, they don't move, they just stay there like your not even around. The AC works occasionally, under the kitchen sink was horrible and caving in really bad, and there was even a time where my kitchen sink was leaking horribly!
Edit: The grounds still look pretty terrible but I had to edit this to raise it a couple stars for how nice the new windows and siding look. The new windows are especially wonderful because we haven't had to run the useless air conditioner since the temperatures have gone up. Our power bill has stayed reasonable for the first time since I moved in here. The siding changed the outside from looking moldy to clean and pristine. Good job, Grosvenor Square!
I took some pictures of the grounds to show what looks like mold growing on the ceiling outside some of the apartments and the terrible vehicle destroying pot holes in the parking lot. I don't totally dislike living here but this place could do better to make the building look less crappy. The rent is low but you get what you pay for, I guess.
I haven't had any issues with the office manager but the maintenance guy is completely useless. The grounds are okay. The roads stink. The dumpsters everywhere are unsightly but I guess it's something you just have to live with. Some of the tenant's offspring are animal abusers who need to spend a few nights in jail. A dumpster (wtf??) was "tagged" a year ago. Though I'm glad to see the underprivileged taking charge of something, I wish they'd aim higher than a trash can and do what the rest of us have to do - get jobs. Then, they can spend every last penny on dumpsters if they so choose. Otherwise, it just looked really stupid in the middle of Kernersville. Not to long ago, a car was broken into and some license plates were stolen in the middle of the night. Sadly, this is a dumping ground for cats. Unfortunately, it's also a dumping ground for pedophiies. Even more unfortunately, it's also a dumping ground for people who could give two flying you-know-what's for the safety of their children. I wouldn't suggest anyone move here unless you can't do any better. The crime rate is low, at least.
DO NOT MOVE HERE!!! The manager (Pam) is extremely rude and condescending, and occasionally even confrontational. You will even receive warning letters as though they were worded by your mother (if your mom hated you). Basically, the management is disrespectful and extremely unprofessional. In fact, the way things are run here, I am actually afraid posting this will lead to management harassing or treating me even more poorly, or to come seeking retribution. The maintenance is shoddy and slow, the parking lot will murder any vehicle due to disrepair of pavement, and all the photos you see of the complex are very carefully taken to avoid showing peeling paint and rusty stairs. The playground is a joke and the tennis court is not functional (no net and only 1 pole). Also, there was a recent news report involving a tenant suspecting black mold. I think apartments should be managed efficiently and courteously and with professionalism. This place is NOT. **I am definitely NOT the only tenant to have these concerns, just through conversations with neighbors i know it is a pattern here**
Take heed. I moved out of this complex about 2 years ago. When I lived there, the manager (Pam) was rude and always very curt. Maintenence would fix one thing only to cause another issue. When I first moved in, I had an infestation of roaches. The pest control guy didn't seem to be doing much of anything, so I bought my own treatments and took care of them. Pam didn't seem to think it was "important" and often took her time in returning my calls. There were 2 out of the 4 windows in the apartment that were painted shut that I was unable to open the duration of my tenancy. The carpets were shoddy to begin with, closet doors always fell off the track, and the shower head was so low I had to duck to wet my hair, and I'm only 5'7". The playground had one working swing and a large metal orange giraffe for the kids to climb up and fall off. Most of the Latino families in the complex allow their children to play all over the lot so be careful when driving through. Also be careful not to hit any of the man eating potholes in the complex.
The interior is slightly outdated, and although they claim all apartments have an ice machine, mine did not.
If you're just looking for the bare basics, this is probably your place. If you are looking for a complex where management knows it's because of people like YOU that they have a business at all, look elsewhere. Also, if you already have your own mother/grandmother and don't feel like being talked down to by the person you pay rent to, look elsewhere.
DO NOT MOVE HERE! The manager is a royal you-know-what, she talks to you like a child, YELLS at you, and sends out letters to the residents that are very unprofessional and rude. Unprofessional and rude sums this lady up in a nutshell. Also the apartments are very run down - not worth the cost of rent at all. The parking lot is full of huge craters. The maintenance is horrible. And there's a lot of shady people living here. If I could give this place negative stars, I would.
Do not move here. The property manager is rude. She picks favorites. This place is full of pedofiles. DO NOT MOVE HERE! You are not allowed to have company apparently and are not allowed to sit on your porch, apparently. This is definitely the "hood" of Kernersville.
