This place really, really sucks. Very broken down, the only thing they fix things with is caulk. Nasty carpets. Water falls from ceilings. Water heaters keep going out. Very loud and rude neighbors. Apt. management doesn't care is you are disturbed by loud continuous, obnoxious yelling. The maintenence doesn't fix anything correctly. They could care less. As long as they are getting their money. It is NOT worth moving into, because once you move in, they are done with you.

The absolute worst place I have ever lived! They require you to remove all of you belongings from the cabinets in the bathroom and kitchen as well as any pet(s) you may have so the can come in and spray to control their roach problem! You have no say in the matter and it is not in the lease agreement either they added this on in very fine print in another sheet that you do not get a copy of unless you go after siging and request a copy. To get mine I had to point out their leagal obligation to give me my required copy which is pointed out in the lease and says you will be given a copy of the agreement and any additions to the lease agreement. Their management service (which is called D&S property management) sucks as well the lady in the leasing office is supposed to be friendly and helpful and frankly she is the exact opposite. She's extremely hateful and rude she doesn't live on site so when you go to complain to her she doesn't care and trying to get her to have maintence done is like trying to get blood from a turnip. The pool is closed for "maintence" more often then it's open, you have to pay to use the laundry room yet it costs more to do your laundry per load here then at ANY local laundry service. There's only 2 dryers which barely work, 4 washers of which only half of them work half of the time also if it takes ur money OR if some asshole opens up the machine and stops it there are no refunds. Instead of repairing items the paint over them stoves,light sockets,and wall sockets to name a few and on top of that they do a piss poor job of it too. Ever lived in a apartment with a painted bathtub? Move to Reeds Landing

Do NOT live here under any circumstances. Worst place in the world. The roaches are overtaking the property. The property management company snoops through tenants belongings. It takes four people to spray for roaches monthly. One person sprays while the others rifle through tenants stuff. They do NOT clean after previous tenant moves they just move in the next person. The locks are not even changed after move outs. All repairs consist of caulk. Appliances are over 20+ years old and most do not work. Instead of cleaning they paint over bathtubs. The flat roof leaks. The electrical outlets either don't work or are loose and won't hold the plugin. The vents are filthy and air quality is disgusting with pet dandruff, dust, mold, etc. The property management are nice to get you to move in but rude after the lease gets signed. Parking is limited and most cars belong to students from the local high school. The entire complex needs to be completely gutted and renovated or torn down. The property management uses tenants financials to qualify for grant money under the Affordable Housing Program but none of the money is put back into the property up keep. Avoid this place at any and all cost.
Run Away

This property has been through so many managers I've lost count. It was originally under D&S Property Management but one manager stole the rent checks. Now D&S has divided off into NOVA but it is the same exact people. Tenants were evicted or asked to move because they couldn't prove they had paid their rent. Everything is painted over including the bathtubs using a caustic paint substance. Most units are without heat this winter and maintenance has told people to just use their ovens to heat their units. Talk about unsafe and fire hazard. Not sure why it takes four people to spray for roaches every other month. After every storm you see a sea of TVs and electronics near the dumpster because of electrical issues. This property is far worse than the section 8 apartments less then a block away. Run away, far, far away from this property and their unethical property management company.

Everything was fine for the first 30 days I moved in, after that it's been one nightmare after another. 2+ years, 6 floods in my apartment, carpeting that is so worn out they can't stretch it any more and the nails are sticking thru at the thresh holds. Water leaking from the apartment above making stains on my walls. My ceilings are bowing in, like they are ready to cave in at any time. Where the wall attaches to the ceilings it is separating and cracked open.

8 managers since I have been here and we went about a month without any manager. DS properties got rid of it to Nova. They are no better, I heard they are the same company just a different division. The first maintenance man we had, if you can call him that, was a lush, he was always drunk. Never fixed a thing. Subsequent maintenance personnel were just as efficient.

The current manager is a nice person and all, but not management material. Got the job I am sure because her mother used to be a manager here at one time. Telling her anything is like running up on a deer at night in the road, just a deer in the headlights stare, and a nod, and a promise she will get to it, and nothing ever happens.

The apartment grounds are nothing more than a dog waste collection facility, no one is forced to clean up their dog's waste. She keeps letting people in with like 2 huge German shepherds, in these small apartments, then the tenants walk over to YOUR bldg, and their dog mess under YOUR bedroom windows.

You have problems with neighbors harassing you, forget about it, management doesn't give a damn and will do nothing to help you. They know it's hard to find section 8 homes, and that is how they get you stuck here. The pool here has been nothing but a mosquito breeding grounds filled with green sludge and frogs that got trapped in the water trapped in the pool from rain, some got stuck in the filter and had to be cut out to be removed. The frogs that survived a resident collected and released at a nearby creek.

Now they can't be doing much in the way about background checks on people. There are fights here, police here a lot, people going to jail, drugs being sold, people partying all the time. It is now the Edmond Ghetto.

Like the other posts above, I suggest, do not rent here, just keep on driving by. As soon as I can find a way out, I am outta here. It's pretty sad to think I am willing to give up my section 8 I waited for, for over 3 years, just to get out of here.
