RentLingo Editor's Review
We sent a former property manager to investigate

The exterior of this building is in fairly bad shape. The paint is peeling off the walls, the concrete walkways are cracked, and the wood posts in the parking lot are rotting. The interiors of the units are in better shape, however. The appliances are tired and need to be replaced, but everything seems clean and freshly painted. A pleasant surprise is the brand new laundry center, with front loading card machines. Pros include: The apartments are fairly large, which is definitely a plus. The new laundry facility is also a plus, especially since most units do not have washers and dryers. On the down side, this community is falling apart on the outside. Perhaps the largest area of concern, though, is the location. It's in an unsafe neighborhood, and even though it's still in the city, it kind of feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. There's no shopping nearby, and it would be a challenge for commuters, as it's nowhere near a freeway. Tips: Some units have washers and dryers. They also offer single story casitas.

About The Location
We sent a former property manager to investigate

This is a low income, high crime area. Fortunately, the building is next door to two schools, so criminal background checks are done on people who live there, which makes the complex a little safer. It is also set back from the street, so it seems fairly quiet.

“Oppressor ”

They have basically no parking for guess. The office is working with R & M Towing 602.415.1565 the parking that's covered it can have hundreds of empty spaces all night. Bcauz some tenants don't have cars and even the tenants who don't have cars tell their guess to park in their spot. Their guess car still would get towed how would R & M towing know who car that it is @ 1am? The office is working with them...

But if you park on the covered parking their towing you regardless if you cant park or not. I am reporting them to the housing authorities, bbb as well as the Attorney General Office.

My grandmother had to park two blocks away from the apartment and walk back to the apartment at 9:00 pm and someone snatched her purse. This put seniors and women in a very bad place.

One of the office staff family works at R&M towing so they get kick backs from every car that gets towed. I wouldn't live there its set up for you to fail and I am exposing them. And soon the Attorney General Office will b knocking on both of their business doors.
