I would venture to say this place is an outright scam! They charge a VERY high "security fee" that turns into a deposit after a year (likely illegal, a deposit cannot be a fee). If you leave for any reason in that year, they pocket the fee. Then they hold the right to kick you out for any or no reason at any time. So they kicked me out at 9 months or so, and they kept my fee. Would not tell me why (which is also illegal, despite what it says in the lease agreement). On top of that they charged EXORBITANT amounts for cleaning, which they did not use the "security fee" at all, they charged it ON TOP of the fee. I came back during the last bit of my last month to finish cleaning and turn in the key, and they had changed the locks on me, despite the fact I had paid in full for that month (and was still well within the time period for leaving required by law). They illegally refused me entrance to my own apartment. And then charged me for the key and changed lock.The apartment manager was incredibly rude the entire time. She would often call at 2am whenever she heard a noise, thinking it was me. I rarely had people over (maybe 3-4 times my entire time there, and they never stayed very late), yet she would constantly berate me for "hearing people over there". I would be sitting in my apartment in silence reading something online and she would call at 2 in the morning... literally no noise from my apartment.DO NOT STAY HERE!!! IT IS A SCAM!!! Or any properties owned by DEA Investments.
Warning!! Rented for two years, always paying rent on time. When we moved out, our unit was inspected and we were told we'd receive our security deposit back without issue. Still, the owners took out $300 to replace our signage (that they provided and installed!) for the next tenant. Super shady, not in our lease and I assume also illegal. Building is full of mice and leaks from ceiling and walls all fall and winter. We've had items destroyed from several ongoing leaks and never asked for replacement.
I would not recommend this apartment complex to a friend. People who live there are quick to stereo type you. Not very welcoming to new tenants.
The address is wrong its 4300 se 122nd ave portland, or 97236.
I am generally pretty understanding and forgiving, and it doesn't take a lot for me to be kosher with where I live. Heck, I've even been o.k. with working in the projects in NYC. However, I've hit my limit with Weidler Plaza - It has been a horrible experience. I was patient and understanding with the coach roach infestation that was my moving in surprise - even though it took two months for them to make a dent in the population, and they were never able to figure out why there were so many roaches waiting to great me when I moved in. I have been understanding with the many maintenance requests that never get fixed. It was concerning that a homeless guy was living in the storage area/laundry room and that they didn't find time to clean out the large pile of dirty clothing and other items that he left there (3 months later still hanging out). However, I've hit my limit. It's not a safe place to live and when I've brought up serious concerns management pretended to care, then blew me off for over a week, and then "resolved it" by sending me a demeaning letter. I got corned in the secluded entrance to the laundry room, on a Saturday morning, by a group of three people who were trying to break in. Management hasn't even responded to that concern. Also, there has been a big creepy looking guy who keeps looking into my windows in the middle of the night. The apartment manager even told me that if it was her that she'd want to be out in less than two weeks, but the owners just blew me off, wrote a demeaning letter, and basically called me a liar. Please save yourself the frustration and live somewhere else where it's safe. The only positive thing that I can say is that I got some more arm definition from having to kill so many roaches.
I've lived at this property for a little over three years. The location is great, there are basically no pet restrictions, and all of the residents I have met are FABULOUS people. That said, each year I am increasingly disappointed by the staff and overall condition of the property. To start, helpful office/maintenance staff keep getting relocated to other properties leaving behind only those that push the limits of ineptitude. Questions about leasing language, billing methodology, work repairs, and other general concerns are met with utter indifference and blank stares. Leasing agreements have consistently been inaccurate and maintenance, albeit quick to respond, often put a "band-aid" on a problem instead of properly repairing the problem. There are literally no problem-solving skills here with the exception of the assistant manager Kirstin Phillips and the former maintenance manager, Ben (man, do I miss him). As for the units, to my knowledge, the only differences between "old" and upgraded units are a new coat of paint and black appliances. There might be a few more differences but there's no way that they're worth the cost. In the last 6 months, the water has been shut off at least 4 times to address poor property plumbing- during which time staff is scarce. The only means of communication the office is willing to employ are notices left on unit doors (which is an improvement from only posting them on the office door) typically after 6pm so that no one is available the same day to address any questions. Not to mention that the leasing office is a bit misleading about the amenities--the pool opening often gets delayed for unknown reasons and the water continuously looks blue-green; there are few exercise machines available in the fitness "center" and at least one is always broken; the racquetball court is old and dirty; and the community garden they like to tout is at the very back of the property, in a riparian area, with soil so saturated that I barely lost a shoe in the mud!The straw that broke the proverbial camel's back happened recently when, in late Feb. 2014, the property began exterior renovations to repair years of extensive wood rot. Good, right? Not quite. The project has gone horribly off-track and every building has been stripped of exterior wood from patios, chimneys, siding, etc. (I swear the tear down brought about mice because I've never had rodent problems in my life until now. Thank heavens I've only seen them run across the outside deck...so far.) All patios have been completely blocked off to residents for over a month with no end in sight because management is still "working on the timeline of repairs with the construction contractor." What?!? Wouldn't that be something to address BEFORE tear down? What stings the most is that I now live in an over-priced unit at an old property with shabby apartment homes. (When I moved in, the unit had holes and damages from the previous tenant that were never repaired, mismatched painted walls, unpainted wall patches, and other short-comings that had to be addressed). Add that to the fact that I now can't even enjoy the little comforts of my patio just as spring is starting...I'm done- how can I continue to call this place "home?" My suggestion to anyone looking at Breckenridge- carefully evaluate all your other options before seriously considering this place. It may seem like a good idea at first but it will quickly go downhill.
What used to be a nice place to live has now turned into a greedy environment of building owners who don't give a crap about the tenants. There used to be a very nice, fair building manager named Laura who was sweet, fair, and extremely helpful with the tenants...you felt her care for everyone. She was mysteriously replaced by a clueless, uncaring, unforgiving piece of s#*t of a manager who sort of resembles Conan O'Brian. He doesn't care about the residents, especially the older ones or those who have been there longer than 3-5 years, and they do everything in their power to get these people to move out so they can jack up the rent with no excuses or reasons. The building used to be clean, but now looks like crap, especially after the maintenance man decided it was time to jump ship. Carpet is fading, dark, depressing hallways, and corny old paintings of stars who have faded from glory on each floor. Conan O'Brian's assistant, or co-building manager is a high strung, late to work every day, bring her personal problems to work kind of lady...She wont have time for you because she only has time for her stressed out personal life, which is part of her work day in the office. Overall, both building managers are very mean, not very exposed to other cultures, and are two of the shadiest people I've met in the good city of Portland. Would NOT recommend this building to anyone, especially new folks moving to Portland looking for an outstanding experience. There are plenty of great buildings in Portland, so don't be fooled by the fake smiles of these heartless individuals....You have now been warned!!!
Rented with this company twice in the last 4 years and each experience was great. Got my deposit back each time, maintenance requests responded to quickly, friendly & responsive staff, adorable buildings, decent neighbors/tenants. I would rent there again.
