Disgusted, Let Down – I just graduated from college and moved to Houston, so naturally I was very excited about moving into this apartment, but from move-in day, The Post ruined everything.
There is lots of construction. Its is messy, in the way, and the workers are very rude. Every time I exited and entered my building, during move in, I was cat-called. I explained how uncomfortable this made me to the office, and they did nothing.
There is dog poop in the hallways. My neighbors do not pick up after their dogs, and neither does the Post maintenance staff, so it smells terrible! I told the office, they asked me what they were supposed to do about it. That is not my problem, my problem is there is dog poop in the hall!
My ceiling leaked during the big storms last month. All they did is paint over the stain on my ceiling apparently, because now my severe asthma is acting up. My doctor said it might be due to mold growing...
To get into the buildings here you use a clicker to open gates. Yesterday the system was down for a long while, so no one could get in. We were all waiting outside in the heat. I felt so bad for the people trying to move in that day!
Finally, my car was towed from the garage this morning (the tipping point).
Do not live here. I have lots of friends living in 3333 on Wesleyan. They love it. I chose to live here because it was convenient to work, but waiting in hours of traffic is significantly better than living in this rude, and literally unhealthy, place.
your car may get towed – THEY HAVE TOWED MY CAR FROM THE PARKING LOT SEVERAL TIMES, FOR NO REASON. DON'T GO THERE.
I EVEN HAVE A PARKING TAG.
WORST PLACE TO LIVE~~~GRADE F- – I hope no one makes the mistake I did of moving here. It has been a BIG mistake. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They get a big fat F from me. Don't move here!!!! RUN
Worst place ive ever lived – This is the WORST place ive ever lived. Cars get broken into, everyone I know that has lived here has been constantly towed, including my boyfriend and I. The call box at the front gate has given me problems more than once, I got locked out at 11 at night, which is scary condisdering there are ALWAYS bums walking in this area. Everything is always breaking, the washer broke, the AC drips in the bathroom, which leaves the floor soaking wet, and into the bathtub which leaves stains. The people in the office/security police are all very rude. This place is way overpriced, there is constantly noise coming from outside, people dont care what time it is on weekdays, leaving the bars they are ALWAYS screaming, drunk, blaring the music in their cars, fighting..etc. There arent enough parking spots, the retail and restuarants take up all of them. They now make you wear a wristband to the pool, if you lose the one wristband they give you, you have to PAY for another one. $25 I believe.. another way for them to rip people off. I cant think of one good thing about living here. My neighbors never end up staying, people move out right away, someone is moving out of this place every single day.
Do not move here! – I have lived in Post for the past year and regret haven giving them a dime. The management is very sleezy and unprofessional and the apartments are outrageously overpriced for the size and quality. I have had nothing but bad experiences with the offices staff the few times I ever needed anything. Whenever I have had maintenance issues, I have had a hard time getting someone to come by. There are frequent apartment and car break-ins in the area as well. My friends live in other apartments in the area that are much nicer for what they pay. I don't normally ever write these reviews but I have been so upset with my experience at Post, that I was motivated to write one. Do not move there!
Overrated and Disappointing – I have lived at the Post Midtown Square for over a year and I am disappointed with the place. I expected a lot more for a $1100 a month studio apartment! The unit itself has a lot of things that bother me. When they slapped a new coat of paint on the walls it splattered fine drips all over the kitchen counter that I am unable to take off. The garbage disposal burned out within a month and had to be replaced. The overall feel of the cabinetry is cheap, as is the el-cheap vinyl tile floor. The AC for the unit drains into the bathtub which leaves horrible rust colored stains that have to be removed every week, embarrassing if you have company. The walls in the bathroom were poorly repaired when numerous towel racks have been ripped off leaving intents and wavy marks. When I first got into the unit ever the leasing rep was surprised at how filthy the carpets were. He promised to "have them steam cleaned twice". Well even after that when I moved in they were still stained and discolored, again embarrassing. When I complained I was told that "they were not bad enough to warrant replacement" and "would probably be replaced after my lease." Wow, thanks for taking care of me!
The overall layout of the structure is horrible. The parking is in a completely different building that is across the street that you have to walk up many flights of stairs to get to your car. The garage itself is extremely narrow and at each corner you risk damage to your vehicle as you have to squeeze by other tenants going the other way .Parking on the street is difficult to find. The elevator in my building is broken AT LEAST once a week for more than a day. It usually takes a day or two to fix it, and if it breaks on a Friday well I guess you have to wait till Monday for that! A minor annoyance for me living on 4th floor, I feel sorry when I see people moving and I know the elevator is broken. Welcome to the crappy Post!
I kick myself every day for not living in another complex in Midtown.
THE part of town to be in – If you are under 25 and single this is THE place to be. It's expensive and each of the apartment complexes in the area have their pros and cons, but this is the best part of Houston to live in for young apartment dwellers. It's within walking distance of the best bars and several restaurants and all of the apartment complexes have great weekend pool scenes.
Residents bask in a unique urban experience at this upscale Midtown community catering to young professionals and recent transplants – In Short
Whether it's the safe and convenient walk home from their favorite watering hole or the nearby pedestrian access to dining and shopping, residents enjoy a location and atmosphere virtually unparalleled in Houston. Community amenities include many socially-minded extras like outdoor fireplaces and a fitness center large enough to induce new friendships. Interior touches like hardwood floors, berber carpet and garden-style bathtubs provide for an equally as enjoyable experience at home.
Desperate for tenants and money – I would just like to say that my experience with Post Properties has gone from highly satisfied to completely disgusted! Every lease renewal, no matter what the length of the lease is, there is a significant rent increase. Also Post has made the rent increases rediculously high if you sign anything less than a 1 year lease contract. Management is blaming all the rent increases on a new "software" that raises rent and management supposibly has no control over. If the software is in control then why do we even need anyone in the leasing office. Sounds like to me this is just thier way of being able to say "yes I know everyones rent is increasing but since it is controlled by the new "software" we unfortunately cant do anything about it - oh my! Aside from rent increases, costs for utilities/sewer/water have also been raised and is calculated by the square feet of your living space. Do you think they could find other ways to get even more money out of tenants? Of course they did! Post also has this briliant idea to make even more money by selling off the parking slots to those who want the better of the parking spaces. I am anticipating that I will recieve a notice saying that all tenants will now have to pay to park very soon. I have been a tenant for several years and this has all occured within the last year. Please do your research before you get under the hand of Post Properties. One last thing...the other positive reviews sound like they were written by post mgmt themselves.
Excellent Management! – I have lived here for over a year and a half! This complex is conviently located and has the best apartment management i have ever dealt with. Anytime i need a repair or have a question the staff quickly and courteously deal with my requests. i have never had to request a repair twice and usually the maintenance staff will show up within the next few days to work on my request.
While some people may complain about the parking, this is an apartment complex in downtown. They provide plenty of parking in the Garage which many residents choose not to park in and risk parking in retail parking (which might tow) or on the street (where you can get a ticket)! They provide residents with a sticker to place on your car to prevent towing if you are properly parked in resident parking. I have never been towed but received tickets when i chose to park on the street sometimes. (meters or 2 hour parking)
Bottom line: this is a great complex with reasonable prices for the location and friendly and efficient management. A great choice for any person who wants the location and benefit of good management!
