A great property with great management. submitted by David H. - |Recommended: YesThe apartments are great, the amenities are very good, it's a gated community, and the management and staff are the best.
Average with a few luxury amenitiessubmitted by Isaac R. - |Recommended: NoIts just like any other complex, but at least the staff does try to be hospitable and pleasant. Maintenance is timely and helpful. There are somethings that could use more attention. For example, the plumbing could be better. Toilets clog up frequently and water pressure could be better. Apartments could be insulated better. Tenants have to perform their own weatherization because of the cracks found around doors due to foundation shifts. Foundation could use work because shift affects, insulation and routine tasks like cooking and opening the refrigerator.
response from property -Thank you for your compliments and comments. I would like to let you know of a few things that we have changed and currently offer. Despite our age, we have been remodeling approximately 50 apartments per year. This upgrade package is available to you if you would like to go through the process. In addition, we have stocked a new weather stripping that has worked wonders for residents that have turned in work orders regarding front door draft. Homes of Prairie Springs does not require you to perform your own weatherizing. Please call in a work order so we know we have permission to enter and we would be happy to install new weather stripping for you. We have also recently had our construction contractors do an inspection of our foundations and we only found one minor problem in building 18. This will be resolved as soon as the weather permits. All the other shifting is normal. I hope this answers some of your conerns and helps for you to think of the opportunities we have for you.
Well maintained with friendly staffsubmitted by Stephen M. - |Recommended: YesApartments are fine, very homey with a park-like feel, but the complex is about 16 years old, so it's dated, mostly regarding kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures and heating and air conditioning units. But, maintenance staff is very responsive to make necessary repairs, which can be expected on occasion. I have lived here a year and a half and my air conditioning broke down last summer, the roof leaked down inside the living room wall in the fall, etc. But when things are working, which is most of the time, it's a nice place to live.

Overall reviewsubmitted by Scott H. - |Recommended: YesAs for parkiing, around my building is very limited for the number of units surrounding us and there are many units own multiple cars and they take parking spaces. We are next to neighbors who have very loud cars. Especially when they start the cars in the middle of the night. Our unit started to show signs of cracked walls, wear and tear fixtures. Overall, we are very happy to be here and like how you take care of us!!! But It would be nice to get some attention to the units for the long time residents as far as the interior conditions. Thank you!
response from property -I apologize for your frustration on the parking concern. The fact that we have private garages for every apartment home does help the situation but not all of them have double car garages for families that have 2 vehicles. I have noticed that some residents use the driveway and the garage for parking which helps as well. In addition, we have a towing company that monitors nightly for inoperable vehicles, expired tags, violators, etc. I do try and make sure that we have done as much as we can to acommodate this situation and feel that we have been fairly successful. Do you have any recommendations on how we can further assist your concern? As far as the cracks are concerned, these are called stress cracks. They occur with the shifting of the ground over the years. The good news is that we do not have any major foundation issues that also cause cracks. These particular stress cracks can be resolved easily. May I have permission to send our paint contractor in to your apartment home to take a look? Please let me know and thank you for the compliments that you included in your rating. We appreciate you. Chelsea Aipperspach Business Manager

Great Place to Livesubmitted by Nadezda B. - |Recommended: YesAll appartments have garages, only two stories, well built so we don't hear our neighbors every move. Very safe, close to Bush and 75. Great office staff and maintenance crew. Well kept grounds. Nice neighbors, dog park, over all just a wonderful place to live.
response from property -Thank you so much for taking the time to rate our community, staff, and services. We take pride in our community and strive to be the best. We have our Thanksgiving dinner coming up on Monday, November 22nd at 5:30. Please join us.

1st monthsubmitted by Ilse W. - |Recommended: YesOverall, I am very pleased with my selection of both this community and the specific unit. The staff has been very friendly, cooperative and helpful. My living space is quiet and in a wonderful location. The unit Denise helped me find is perfect for me, and I love the view (and so does my cat). It's close to the exit, but I can't hear or see any of the traffic entering/exiting, which is great. There are relatively minor issues with the construction of the unit, but I can only assume that is to be expected with apartments. The walls aren't flush, shelves aren't level, the windows are not the best quailty, the carpet padding is pretty sketchy and thin (actually a strip is missing in the 2nd bedroom). The kitchen and bathroom cabinet sides have a thin siding rather than wood, which is odd. But again, these things are not deal breakers, they are just odd. The only complaint I have of the community is that some dog-walking tenants don't pick up after their pets. When I encounter dog waste, I pick it up with the bags you provide (which I think is wonderful) and put it in the waste receptacle - which you also provide. I really can't understand inconsiderate behavior like that. But I am happy you provide the area, and love watching the dogs (and so does my cat!!). Again, I am pleased and happy to be living here, and am excited to settle in and make this my home.
Hopssubmitted by Tommi R. - |Recommended: YesOverall is good. Maintenance is poor:They just try to hide the actual cause/problem.
response from property -Good Afternoon Mr. Rintamaa, I thank you for taking the time to visit our resident portal. I take these ratings very seriously. I am concerned with your level of happiness in our maintenance department. If there are things that have not been repaired correctly, please give me a list or call me as soon as possible. I would like the opportunity to resolve these issues for you. I am happy to see that there are other areas that you have given us a higher score. Hopefully with effective and quality maintenance repairs, we can get a better grade next time around. Sincerely, Chelsea Aipperspach/Business Manager The Homes of Prairie Springs 280 W.
