The apartments are great and the maintenance is really fast. The manager is always helping us. However we felt lack of support during Covid times for those who experienced financial problems

It was such a pleasure living here for the first year. I feel new management is sincerely trying to keep it a nice place to live especially with the recent upgrades. My concern now is the structure of my building, the upkeep of the grounds, and the l...

Overall great place to live. It is expensive but on par with everyone the area. Bozzuto has definitely made some good improvements since they’ve taken over.

This is a nice place to live in. The maintenance team is great, we submit a ticket in the morning and they are here in a few hours. The only downside is there is a lot of mold in the apartment, and its hard to get rid of.

Great experience so far. Great location. Well maintained community. Very new. Upgraded kitchen. I definitely recommend Halstead fair oaks to people.

Living here has been a great experience. The community is clean and friendly and I love how everything is very close and central. Definitely recommend for people to live here.

I feel like communication isn’t always the best from management we have had several occasions where they have scheduled loud work I.e. carpet replacement in the unit above us at 8 am or tree trimming at 8 am

I have been a Wheelhouse resident for three years, and Stacy and Crystal and their colleagues have been fantastic to work with! The property has always been quiet and clean and managed with professionalism.

It’s been a great experience so far! The apartments are updated and nice. I’ve loved communicating with Angel, she’s the sweetest. Thanks for bringing food trucks in every week.

I love living here! Apartments are beautiful, maintenance is prompt and they have frequent community events like free breakfast, food trucks and raffles.

Andrew D.

Very nice place to be. I very much like the first come first serve parking. Food trucks are a nice touch. I’m interested to see what more the management will provide with covid restrictions being lifted.

We really love out new home and the neighborhood. We think that the living room is not properly arranged, because we are very limited about TV installation. And we hoped the principal room could be a little bigger to have a desk inside.

Lanaea A.

I have had a great time here. The only down side is the stealing of tires in the parking lots and I have to keep resigning new leases which is making me suspicious. I am on my 3rd lease in 3 months and am being asked to sign a new one again.

Erika R.

2021-06-17  

So far it’s been great! I wish we had a schedule with the timing to expect the trash pickups, I work a bit later than others and think I miss it often. Otherwise we love the community, amenities, food trucks, and how quiet it is here

I enjoyed everything about living here except for how expensive it is for the quality. I also have a dog and feel like the dog park is very small and not the best option.

Karina G.

The bathrooms suck especially flushing the toilet. Someone hit my car and didn’t pay for it so now I have to pay to fix it. Do not make your residents pay for the trash service what if I wanted to save money and throw out my trash myself.
