My husband and I lived in this apartment complex from Summer 2016 to Fall 2017. At first, we were very pleased.Then little things began to bother us. There are washing machines and dryers on each floor, but using them was fairly expensive. The clothes often failed to dry properly. The washers were so inefficient that our white sheets turned yellow. The outdoor patio spaces look wonderful, but when we tried to use the gas grill in the middle of summer, we had to try several different ones before we found one that worked. Our neighbors regularly yelled at each other in the hallway late at night, and management apparently never took stronger action then sending a series of employees to talk to them. All these things were minor, but they became more problematic when management told us that our rent would be raised by around 7.2% for the next year’s contract. After signing the new contract, we began to consider moving, and clarified with management the fee to break the contract (1 month’s rent). We continued our search, found a house, and began the process to break our contract. Throughout this time, my husband was in occasional contact with an employee. We then discovered that management had doubled the fee two days before we officially broke the contract. Although it was legal, they never informed us in any apparent way. We met with the complex manager, who was condescending and acted like they had done us a favor by having such relatively cheap fees. Apparently it never occurred to her that we’re not charity recipients; we patronized their business because of the cheap fees, which had just doubled.Thankfully, we were in a financial position to purchase the house, despite the fee increase; someone else might not have been so fortunate. Although I realize that management did nothing illegal, I believe that they were unprofessional and unwise. I cannot recommend Park View as a place to live; convenient location, nice views, but simply not worth the money or hassle.
This business has the worst customer service skills I have ever experienced, and I work in the automotive industry and have worked in the restaurant industry. From the Top, to the regional, all the way down to the complex managers they hire to run their buildings, I have experienced nothing but neglect, disrespect, and blatant disregard since I have started with trying to get an issue resolved. My apartment was damaged due to the facility's lack of attention to detail ( water damage, dust and dirt from brick pointing, dirt and grime tracked in from the kitchen makeover) then i was charged after I moved out for carpet replacement. After I refused to pay, it was turned into collections and has impacted mine and my roommates credit history severely. I have been able to remove this invalid debt from my credit history but my roommates have not been quite as fortunate and there has been no effort on Sierra Managements part to assist with the issues on the credit bureaus, even with paying this in full. I have been passed from person to person, I have been treated like a low class citizen, I have been laughed at, and i have not been called back after 6 messages and a verbal promise to get back to me from one of their executive positions. My time renting at Nob Hill Apartments, and my experiences with Sierra Management have been disgraceful. They don't even deserve the one star I was required to give for a review.
At first I was excited about this apartment because it was the best I could find near my job that allowed pets, but now all I have to say is run while you still can. This place is not as advertised. The washer and dryer units are almost always broken and you have to call the company (not our maintenance) to get them fixed which can take up to a week. They will also show you a beautiful model of their apartments, but this is just a illusion. The paint job does not match and is patched up, the mock granite counter tops look anything but, I can see where they patched up a wall they knocked out in my bedroom, the carpets have bong stains from previous occupants, and the bathroom basin is so cheap that when my cat knocked my candle over it punched a huge hole through it. There is also a major bug infestation because of our lovely residents from Nepal leaving trash and food in the hallway and their children constantly breaking the windows and doors to the buildings. I have tried to be patient and I usually like learning from people of other cultures, but these people from Nepal that make up well over half our population here are simply appalling, sexist, loud, and messy. Don't even try to put in a noise complaint when they are celebrating from 5pm to 4am because management will do nothing. Another part of our population are drug dealers so I hope you enjoy fumes and sketchy people. Also while they advertise they no longer take section 8 I have to call that to question. There are cops and ambulances in my neighborhood several times a week. It is advertised as a nice wholesome community and looks nice from the outside, but don't be fooled. These are overpriced projects with a crappy attempt at a new paint job. My lease is up in August and I am relieved.
I ABSOLUTELY HATED LIVING HERE! I stayed here for a year while I finished my education at the mortuary school down the street. Heres my list of whys:1. parking is a horror, for the amount that I paid to live here I should not be getting so upset every. single. day. just to find a parking space. Half of the lot is given to "leased" parking which isn't available to those that live here and is never ever near full. Forget about the parking garage, the card reader is like 100 years old and practically broke each time I used it because it wouldn't read my card and I had to jam the thing into the reader!!2. the apartment itself is a frustration. The cabinets stick and I practically lost a nail or ended up with a splinter every time I opened one. They are always working on the damn building!! I don't think there is ever a time where I don't hear a jack hammer or drill first thing in the morning. That is where all of this rent money is going! Half of the repairs that are done are useless and unnecessary. When I first moved in I had tons and tons of boxes that I needed to get rid of and I called the office to ask for help, like it said in my lease. Well, surprise surprise they wanted to charge me!! God forbid I was a little old lady who couldn't do that on my own! Needless to say, I brought the boxes down by myself..... All this place wants is money for everything! Don't even dare leaving your stovetop dirty when you move out, that'll be a 50 dollar charge...3. Moving out is the biggest pain in the world! They program the elevator so it only goes to the floor where your stuff is and then to where you are moving in. Well, you're lucky if some ------ that lives here doesn't take the elevator because then it gets stuck on their floor and you have to go retrieve it. Also, you're lucky if the maintenance crew doesn't steal the elevator away from you and let anyone use it. When I moved from the my apartment up to my boyfriends a few floors up, the maintenance guy (who was very very rude to me) kept pestering us every 30 mins about when we would be done and then he just shut the thing off on us! So, we just held the elevator up and it would beep over and over until we finally took it where we needed to. In conclusion, I would not recommend this place. Find something cheaper and less frustrating in the area.
My three roommates and I moved into an old and outdated basement apartment at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year. We were told that all the walls had just been repainted and new carpet installed so we took precautions to keep the apartment in excellent condition. We went the whole year without damaging anything in the apartment or staining the carpet. We cleaned the apartment regularly while we lived there and spent two days cleaning vigorously before we moved out. About a month after moving out, we were notified that in addition to not receiving our security deposit, we were being charged an additional $650 for cleaning fees. Total this was equivalent to around $3000! They charged us to clean and repaint all the walls as well as to re-clean nearly every aspect of the apartment. We were four responsible and tidy college students who spent an entire year taking very good care of an apartment that was not in a good condition to begin with and this company took advantage of us. Unless you can afford to take them to court when they try to scam you after you move out, I would highly recommend staying away from this company.
Small problems get fixed, while severe problems will be acknowledged but not addressed properly. There have been issues with our roof for about 3 years. The apartment across the hall had the ceiling in the bedroom collapse and leaked into the tenants apartment below. The apartment sat vacant for 2 years until a gentlemen moved in. He ended up getting out of his lease within a few month because of the same occurrence. Now the roof issue has progressed to my side of the building. About 2 months ago, we had a severe storm and I came home to every room in my apartment leaking as well as in the common hall area. There was a downpour of water out of both light fixtures and smoke detector. Even though the carpeting was quickly cleaned there still a distinct smell and mildew growth on the carpet. The light fixtures are still to be fixed. I work late hours, so there's times I'm walking into complete darkness. They are aware of the problem, yet there is no hurry to fix it unless I call down and make a ruckus. It took about two weeks for my ceiling to dry with probably 15 buckets scattered around my apartment. Which by the way, my kitten kept knocking over so I was left with gross, dirty water soaking into my carpet. I kept getting the run around about how the main issue, the roof, was going to be resolved. I emailed the downtown office of my concerns and received a reply that my email would be "put in my file." Nothing else. I came home a few nights later and there was another puddle in my living room. I decided to make a call to the borough building inspector, in the next few days there were workers on my roof and I thought the issue was resolved. I was also given $100 off my rent. Unfortunately, it rained last night (7/26/14) and now my ceiling is leaking, not only in the same spots but also in new areas. There is now another severe storm approaching and I don't want to leave my apartment because I know the worst is yet to come. There are so many issues I can complain about but I understand apartment living and am writing this review in hopes that my problem will finally be resolved. I'm sure I can get out of my lease but moving in not an option for me a this time. I wish the company, Prudential Realty, cared about their tenants and would reinvest into their property. How do you expect tenants to stay if the living conditions are unsafe?
I work there and it's a nice facility but the people and attitudes are awful. They're rude to each other patients family and other visitors. I have never been around such miserable people nor have I ever heard professionals speak to their clientele the way they do. It's text book verbal abuse.
Don't move here. I lived in the apartments then moved to the townhouse on the property and was there almost ten years. Noisy neighbors were never taken care of, repairs were never completed or never responded to. The SWAT teams suddenly showing up on multiple occasions to random areas of the complex was frightening. We had a yellow jacket problem in our basement and the landlord never called us back about it and we had to take care of it ourselves. The plaster was peeling in the basement and we reported it the day we moved in and it was never fixed. We had a hole in our bathroom for over a year until we moved out - this was due to the maintenance never completing a plumbing job they had started. We left the place perfectly clean and never got our deposit back or a reply as to why they had kept our deposit. I'm so glad to be out of there and do not recommend it to anyone.
SEEMS LIKE A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE IN
Very bad, completely don't recommend it, old building full of mices and they take more than 50% of the deposit for fake reasons
