Morgan Grove apartments have the worst management team ever...they say they are kid friendly but they are not, they harass the kids and will harass you about stupid little things. All of the staff is just nasty and rude people. The plumbing SUCKS, the walls are too thin , u can hear everything from your neighbors apartment. Don't be fooled by the pool and play area, they really don't like kids and will make your kid feel unwanted. They SUCK!!!

From the start this company uses false, and misleading, advertising. I gave them one star just to get the ""needle"" out of the mud. When I first applied they boasted an On-Site Manger & Maintenance person. They don't have one. I've lived at Washington Square Apartments in Cudahy for 2+ years, one of their properties. The building is clean, I will give them that much. But that is solely due to the efforts of one man, Jim, their live-in cleanup guy. From that point on it goes rapidly downhill. When Federal & State inspections are on the agenda ..... they hustle to correct things that are obviously in violation and need repair. Otherwise? When we get the time, and oh yes, if it's in their ""Mystery Budget""!\nThey have several violations of State & Local Codes, which they conveniently choose to ignore unless ""leaned on"" by those authorities. They have stated to their tenants that the city agencies have no authority on their properties. But, when they call ""911"" they expect them to arrive. I guess if the building caught fire they would have to break out the garden hoses!\nI have been the proverbial ""Thorn in their side"". Hence, when I was late paying my rent (my fault) I was served with Eviction papers. When it went to court the outcome was simple. The judge found that Metropolitan had presented facts that were not believable to him and sided with me. CASE DISMISSED!\nNow on to the day-to-day operations of this facility. Repairs? If our cheaper hired employee can't do it I guess we'll have to hire a real contractor, and ""Oh God!"" the cost. How will we survive without making lots of money? Leaky toilet? Let's try and fix it TWO OR THREE TIMES.\nAmenities? If you call Bingo and card games that I guess they have them. Oh yes, and then there are the ""Planned"", or is it ""Plotted"" social events. About 3 or four a year with the same repetitive food fare. Just what I'd want for Mom & Dad to survive through.\nThey forget one thing. These are senior citizens, or persons with disabilities, sometime hardly mobile. They are someones parents and grandparents ..... loved ones. Do we cast them adrift in their old age to a place like this? I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.\nYou ask why I am still here? The rent is Government assisted. It's all I can comfortably afford until I find another place and leave behind improvements for my neighbors and friends. Ever wonder why these people seem ""Old & Chrochity""? Places like this make them that way.\nOne last piece of advice. If you, or someone you know, wants to consider renting from Metropolitan Associates consider this. Sometimes you just can't make a ""Silk Purse out of a Sow's Ear""!

Pros: Good Location

Cons: Deceiving company, SLOW to correct conditions

.

I made the mistake of signing a 1 year lease (July 2006-July 2007) with Metropolitan Associates at the Southgate location. It was my first apartment and I chose it because it sounded good-2 bedrooms, 1 bath, free heat, and it was considered a bi-level apartment for $675/month (has recently increased to $700). The KIT, BA, and living room were very small; bedrooms were average. I was unhappy with the fact that the 1 BR apts have a much larger BR, BA, and living room and were about $150 less per month when compared to the 2 BR apts. So, it may be a better deal for the money for someone looking for a 1 BR, but I wouldn't recommend the 2 BRs. There were several minor flaws that I noticed: it smelled bad, there were a lot of little chips in the wood paneling and counter tops, and the carpets were discolored in some spots throughout. I didn't like the fact that the entire building had to share 1 washer/dryer. It was inconvenient, expensive, and the dryer didn't dry well (I paid twice to dry 1 load before I started doing laundry elsewhere) . As far as the outside there were holes in the lot, neighbors partying outside quite frequently, there were huge racoons all over, and there was nowhere for guest parking without buying a permit, but those are ""just common things with apartment living which Metropolitan Associates has no control over,"" I was told. Then winter came around....free heat?......no, it seemed to be set at a constant rate which wasn't adjustable no matter where I'd set my thermostat it was always cold! No changes were made and no explaination. Also, maintainance staff did a crumby job shoveling/salting; on top of that some had horrendous attitudes. When my lease was finally complete, a large amount of money was docked off my security deposit for small holes from nails in the wall from my wall hangings! I also considered Loomis Hills down the street also associated with Metropolitan-same story.\r\n

Pros: Nice management

Cons: Poor heating, maintainance, parking, shared w/d, overall uncleanliness

I currently rent from Oklahoma Gardens. It's supposed to be one of the more upscale complexs of theirs. It's not. Very overpriced. The free heat included isn't really free. It sets at a certain rate to where you can't move it. Right now it's 6 degrees outside and only 68 in here. Very old cabinets, toilets, countertops. Doesn't even come with dishwasher. Was very dirty when I moved in. Lazy maintanence people and leasing people. Took 4 months to get a storm window put in. Would never rent from them again.\r\nThey also take about a day to come by and salt the sidewalks. My son fell a dozen times already.
