Since the property was sold to an absentee owner somewhere in California, that tenants do not know, either by name, location or anything else, and therefore no way to let the owner know what is going on or to go over management's head, tenants are at the mercy of the management. Current manager used to be asst mgr. Property was nice when I moved in but now everything is downhill and sliding fast! I can't wait till I get the money to get outta here! They won't fix outside lights on the street where the office is; office area is well-lit, but once you pass office, it is pitch black dark at night. For people that take the bus, this is dangerous-I actually had a guy jump out from between buildings and follow me, yelling at me to stop and "Come here!" When I asked for the 4th time in 5 months to fix the lights out front and told what happened, the mgr said I could always call the onsite courtesy officer! He only works after 8 pm, I have no idea who he is because I have NEVER seen any courtesy officer in the 3+ years I have been here! What am I supposed to do-tell a man to stop chasing me so I can call the courtesy officer or police?! Neighbors had bedbugs and I am terrified I will get them before I can get out of this place! Seems like they rent to anybody and everybody now. People who don't even live here-who another apt caught on camera breaking into their washers and dryers, damaged the washers & dryers and they won't even fix them! We have no way to wash our clothes here! Yet they still advertise laundry rooms in ads! That is listed as an amenity and yet we cannot take advantage of it - you think they are lowering rent because of all these things? NO! They steadily raise rents! I was so happy when I first moved here; now I am just disappointed and anxious to get out!
I have lived in Walnut Glen for about 7 years now and I can tell you its terrible here,I have lived in 3 different apts here now a townhome,from ceilings that leak water in your living rooms to other peoples water comming down on you,to the bedbug out break here to falling down gates in the back yards thats been waiting over a year to be replaced one night I woke up about 4 in the morning and their was a guy standing my living room there are drugies here and lots of stealing and on weekends the party people get out here and keep u up all hours of the night,so today i get up no water and mind you dish washer is still waitiing to be fixed and gate for over a year my ceiling is now starting to crack and cave because of where water was comming through my grass here has not been mowed the entire summer even though i have conplained many times about it just like the gate and other issues yeah when you move in you think its cool then comes the boom of the place falling apart looking for new places as we speak cant wait to get the hell out of here!And just so you know the rent goes up every time you redo your lease!
better than I expected – Not too shabby! I've been living at Walnut Glen Apartments for about a month now and haven't had any big issues. Considering the price and my budget, this is an exceptional place to live. Management definitely holds an effort to keep up with the large apartment campus.
As for the apartments, the walls could be more soundproof. Again, I've heard worse and have no other complaints about my living quarters. I'm pleased with my rent, the people who live around me, and the property/on-campus security. In conclusion, Walnut Glen is definitely a place I'd recommend looking into if you're looking for a low-cost, pet-friendly community with minimal sketchy people.
Pretty Nice – I moved in about three months ago, and so far it's been pretty nice. There are things that could be better, but for the price you can't really beat it. Every apartment has some kind of balcony or patio, play areas for the kids, the apartment staff worked with me A LOT to get the place, and the grounds are kept pretty nice. They didn't open one pool this year though (they have two) and don't have a lot of lights at night, and some of the units seem a little "out dated" but definatly give them a tour! They alow up to two pets too, as long as you pick up after your dog!
Worst 1st apartment expierence – I just moved into Walnut Glen Apartments less then a month ago. This is my first apartment, and I'm expecting a child so for the price & the location, I thought I was getting a good deal. Boy, was I wrong.. I came outside of my apartment this morning to find my car broken into and things stolen. Whoever is responsible stole over 150 worth of Christmas presents, as well as my purse. How awful.. I went immediately to the office to "speak" about this situation. I went into the office, and the first question I was asked was "Is somebody in your life, that would do this?" I completely flipped out.. That question didn't make the situation any better. After this, the "main" lady in the office asked me why I never filed a police report, wtf.. This situation just happened. She offered no compensation, no security around the building. All I kept hearing was I wish there was something we could. Low & behold.. I wish I could pay my rent on January 1st. HORRIBLE EXPIERENCE
