I lived here for 3 years, and the only issue I had with with the dryers not drying properly. That comes with older machines I guess.

Nice to have a manager on property that would respond to emergencies right away. Hot water tank blew at around midnight and he came within a few minutes of the call to check it out. The tank was replaced the next afternoon.

I never had a problem with the manager, but then again I wasn't breaking the rules either.

Good, quiet apartments. Lived there for a couple years. Had a couple plumbing issues but they were fixed immediately.

Nice grassy field but neighborhood people walk dogs there, not all pick up after them.

I read the other reviews and saw one weirdo accuse manager of oggling their daughter. That guy who wears the blue shirt? Complete prude. He was all business. Barely looked at me OR my two daughters.

All in all, 4/5 would go back.

I am a construction worker who works out of town quite a bit and spend weeks or even months at a time on a job. It is quiet and the tenants here are quite respectful of one another. I have had a few issues with my kitchen sink and bathroom sink leaking but it was remedied somewhat quickly with the building manager, I have brought up my unhappiness with the laundry facilities cost because I always have to pay for the dryer 2-3 times, guess I can't blame him for machines from the 80's.

Overall the grounds could use a little work, the backside is used as a dog park which sucks because my niece and nephew were playing out back and brought a few unpleasentree's into my place. Plus side they were happy to be having fun in such a big field, the building manager has kids and they enjoyed playing with them.

Stayed at Briarwood for over 4 years. Somewhat secluded, the buildings are very quiet. Looks nice, big grassy field and lots of trees if you like walks as I do.

Management seemed very strict with disturbances (there was only one, evicted immediately) but polite and professional in my experiences.

Would live there again but prices there went way up in the last few years.

I lived here for awhile and I don't know why other than I couldn't afford to move. I deeply regret ever moving to Briarwood apartments in the first place and would never recommend it to anyone.

First of all, my apartment had black mold in the bathroom, under the kitchen sink, and all around every window. When I told the manager about it, he said it was my problem to clean it but it was there before I moved in, and I could tell from the alcohol on his breath and the smell of marijuana on his clothes, that he obviously didn't care, and was a total jerk about shifting blame to me.

Second of all the outside looks like crap. The management almost never mows the lawn, the garbage bins always have lids open, crows everywhere, garbage surrounding it, and to top it all off, goes day and days without shovelling sidewalks and/or putting salt on it. My friends have fallen and hurt themselves and should have sued but they didn't want the hassle for sprained wrists.

The laundry machines are old, the common areas are decently clean, the building is in a nice enough area, but the management seems to care more about money than the people giving it to them for rent. I'm utterly disgusted by the way the manager looks at my 13 year old daughter and I could swear he made lewd remarks to his friends one day about her spandex which she wears for dance class.

The doors are almost always left open due to improper locks and maintenance. Not only do I not feel safe from criminals and strangers, but the manager seems hell bent on staring at my wife and 13 year old daughter and the owner doesn't want to fix anything wrong with my apartment OR the building. I would NOT recommend this unsafe, mold-infested building with a <removed> manager who refuses to even shovel sidewalks in the winter! I love the area and the building could be so much better if there were different management who cared!

PS. I know for a FACT that there have been bedbugs in there many times and all the manager does is cover EVERYTHING in a white powder. If THAT worked then the professionals would use it!!!
