I had a wonderful experience living at Dellwood Apartment. The location is located right in the heart of campus and you don't have to walk long distances to class. The landlord lady is very helpful.
The apartment is great, and if you are nice, and pay your rent on time Margie is a great landlady. I don't know who posted fake reviews or was dumb enough to do them all in the same day but Margie is good. She can be a little chatty, but I've lived here for two years and have never had an unfriendly conversation with her. She gets things fixed quickly after you report a problem and she keeps the grounds clean. The apartments are pet friendly and clean, and the big beautiful windows with balconies really make the apartments feel homey.
Once you sign your lease at dellwood you will soon Realize a thin layer of paint is all you really pay for. Within two days your windows will rattle. Your plumbing will leak. Your doors will not close properly your carpet smells of the people before you.
Worst experience of my life. The landlord Margie is the actual devil. She seems very kind and reasonable until you sign your lease and then she will harass you and start arguments and threaten to kick you out when you have paid your rent and done nothing wrong. She would call me non stop telling me she wanted me out because I was only there on the weekends. She threatened to call the cops and take me to court because I wanted assurance that I wouldn't be charged for the two months left on the lease after she forced me out early. She caused me to have anxiety and panic attacks. Do not rent here you will regret it.
If you are considering renting from this apartment.. DON’T! This apartment complex has great rental rates and looks good on paper, but looks can be very deceiving. The apartment’s actual landlord does not deal with the comings and goings of this place, instead everything goes through the “maintenance guy,” Rick. He is completely incompetent with his abilities as the handyman. He works during the school year as a teacher, and if you happen to call him during the day and expect to leave him a voicemail, think again, because he will answer it during his class and make it appear like you’re the idiot for bothering him. Furthermore, once you finally get him into the apartment to fix whatever needs it, he will do a horrible job, usually not fixing the problem at all, or causing a new problem to occur, and will have to come multiple times to finally figure it out. The parking lot for the apartment is insanely tiny and there are two assigned parking spots per apartment, so if you have three roommates or want to have visitors, they’ll have to park in a completely different lot and walk over. Also, if you have an “unidentified” car parked in your reserved spot, Rick will contact you and ask you if you have someone living with you, and will force you to pay for the two person rate if he thinks you have a roommate. Aside from being super tiny, the parking lot is especially worse during the winter. Anytime it snows, Rick hires a guy to come out and clear out the lot. The snow removal guy basically scrapes snow from the middle of the lot and places huge piles in front of cars, so no one can get out.One weekend, my boyfriend and I went to St. Louis and I turned off our A/C and anything else that was running. When we returned, our A/C was on and someone had not shut our freezer door properly, so our food was spoiled. Since then every time we were gone for a long period of time (like Spring Break or Christmas break), we would shut all the doors to the rooms and put a piece of tape towards the bottom, and when we returned at least one of the doors would always be open. I have a feeling that Rick was snooping through our apartment, since he has keys to all the doors at the complex. I hate to think what all he went through.Rick completely ruined my experience living at this complex. He is a complete idiot and should not be paid to be a repairman or a representative of the landlord. When my lease was close to ending, I had an altercation with him where he screamed at me on the phone and threatened me. In order to speak to the landlord (because her contact information is nowhere to be found on the lease or website), I had to call the courthouse to find out her information. I left a message on her phone asking to please call me back. Of course she never returned my call. It just goes to show how the landlord and Rick do not care about the well being of their tenants. If you can help it.. COMPLETELY AVOID THIS PLACE!
