Here is the Low-Down on "Legacy" Arboretum! My family was trapped here for three horrible years! The place stinks and reeks of black mold, which you will become sick with vomiting and diarrhea! It collects on the window seals and anywhere there is moisture. The place is crawling with bugs (ear wigs, spiders, unnamed bugs) inside of the dwelling areas NOT OUTSIDE! Neighbors can be very rude, leaving notes on your property. There is a SUBSTANTIAL amount of noise if you live on the bottom floor from neighbors. The property is highly over priced and the selling point is the area! Not even a good area any longer, there were numerous amounts of break-in with cars, vandalism repeatedly while we live in this so-called "safe" community. They will nickle and dime you on your move out, which will equate to a vehicle down payment. We have since left the drudgery of Legacy and moved on to a cheaper, better apartment in a different state! Very huge disappointment over-all! I would not rent here, nor would I make any sort of recommendation to others who are considering a lease here! My right hand to God! This was by far the worst place that my family had ever resided! Please keep looking and do yourself a grand favor!

Our family has been at Legacy at Aboretum for more than 3 years. Some of the reviews are a bit confusing. I have never had any severe issue here at Legacy. The residents are nice, most keep to themselves. The grounds are very well kept. Safety is never an issue and the staff is excellent, always willing to go the extra mile. If you are a family in transition to buying a home or a single professional, check out Legacy at Arboretum. The high school is superb, but our youngest attends private school because of over crowding at the area, public Elementary school. Truly, it is really close to everything in the South area of Charlotte, we barely visit other areas of the city because of convenience. Great place to stay!

I lived in Legacy Arboretum(previously Echo Forest) for 4.5 years and had a wonderful time. Place was a safe neighborhood with friendly neighbors and professional leasing office personnel. Any maintenance work complaints are taken care immediately and I would refer this place to any of my friends without question.

Very nice apartments, awesome staff, especially Nancy. Very helpful and fast maintenance staff. Nice neighborhood in a quiet, not crowded area. Big, neat apartments. Large closets, a lot of windows. Quiet neighbors, never had a problem with them.

Heed this warning !! The staff here smile to your face but the truth is they are evil people! (Except Kathryn) The place is a mess with aggravation at every turn. The maintenance here is terrible. Your always in disrepair. The noise from one unit to the next is terrible. They allow people to run businesses out of their homes and when there up till 2:30 am banging getting their products together you and your children will have to deal with it. When I moved in here there was a drug addict living upstairs with his felon brother and illegal live in common law wife. I had to have a background check and a credit check. How did these people even get in here? He would literally jump up and down on our heads for 4 months before they finally told them to leave. If he had not been abusive to the staff on the phone making threats they would have done nothing while collecting our rent and his. They take their marching orders from corporate and that's where the attitude starts at GOLDBERG PROPERTIES! The SLUM LORDS OF THE SOUTH. You want to really hear how bad it is here just send me an email with your telephone number and I will call you.. jscavetto@yahoo dot com. It wont let me post it correctly. lol If I am lying why would I give you my name and email address. I wouldn't so take heed and run far far away.

( Read part 1 first.) There is the poor windows in these units. Unless you can afford 250.00 a month for heating your unit during the colder months and about 200.00 a month for air conditioning during the hotter months don't live here. Poor insulation in the walls. Poor quality appliances and fixtures. A brief story about how they deal with problems. We had a pipe break in the ceiling of our unit. We lost near 15,000.00 dollars of personal property. They had just finished working on the plumbing upstairs a week before. I told the maintenance supervisor that they never recharged the water system up stairs that I could hear loud banging when the water was shot off. They did nothing about it. So the pipe bursts from the pressure and I have the loss. The office never called to see what was going on at all. We moved out that night to a hotel. Two days later I walk into the management office to all those lovely ladies and not one expressed their sympathies for our loss. No one asked where are you staying or what can we do for you. Three days later the insurance company said it was no ones fault so your on your own and that is how Corporate played it as well. We moved back n a week later too a disaster. They contaminated every room despite promising to seal off the air system and doors. They did not. They had debris in our refrigerator and freezer !! HOW can anyone care any less. With over 200.00 worth of meats in goods in our refrigerator they unplugged it. Filled the pantry with dust all over our foods as well. The cabinets with our drawers were filled with debris as well. It took another week of cleaning just to get the place clean enough to eat out of our own kitchen. The corporate moron for this company yelled at me that I was wasting the time of his staff with my problems. You want to hear the real story. Send me an email with your telephone number and I will call you back. Send an email to jscavetto@carolina.rr.com. If it wasn't true would I give you my personal name and email address? STAY AWAY FROM THIS PROPERTY!!!!!

I don't even know how the responses below would even possibly happen at Legacy Arboretum. I feel like they aren't even talking about the same place that I am currently sitting and typing this sentence out.

STAFF: Always friendly, remember my name even though I only go in about once a month, and are super ready to fix problems if you have them.

BUILDINGS: There's nothing rundown about any buildings I've ever seen. I had brand new carpeting when I moved in, none of this berber stuff, it is plush and I love vacuuming it! The doors/locks are perfect and the appliances are not old or shoddy. They aren't stainless steel or top of the line but they do the job and look nice.

MAINTENANCE: I've needed them twice and both times they came faster than expected. One was A/C related and one was a running toilet.

*PROS: Friendly staff, quiet community, convenvient area, cheap rent, & they clean the crap out of your place before you move in! (They even have plug in scenters to make it smell nice)

*CONS: not a lot of parking (but not too bad), thin floors/ceilings,
breed restrictions

These people are crazy! I have no idea why they are bashing this property. My fiance and I live there. And let me tell you somethin. This place is great! I've never had such a nice appartment. All brand new appliances and carpeting. The place was spotless when we moved in. And you cant beat the price. We shopped around the area. We looked at the other places that claim to be in its class, THEY DONT COMPARE! My leasing consultant, Nancey, was super friendly. GREAT LOCATION. GREAT PLACE TO LIVE

I will speak to you as honestly as I can. I lived here and I will tell you that everything you have read up to this point is as close to the truth as you can get from a one sided conversation. The staff is inept at best. The units are in such disrepair that they are at the point of no return. Wall repairs are visible everywhere. They use a paint that comes off when you rub up against it. All the ceilings have stucko to hide all the damage. The carpets are filthy and they paint the counters with a coating that scratches off within the first few months of your stay. The cabinets in the kitchens are peeling when you move in because whomever painted them didn't bother to take the grease off them first. The floor in the kitchens are all worn out and the tiled floors have many chips and cracks. I have heard that the fireplace units do not work but mine did not have one so I can't speak first handed. The grounds are kept nice around the courtyard but you will find that the areas around your units are filthy at best. You have drug dealers living around you. The duty officer is useless and is nothing more than a figure head who when called probably won't show or even return your call. It is true that the kids in this community have no respect for the rules and regulations of the lease......forget about simple human decency. Damage to personal property is certain. There have been attacks at this location against women by men. I was there when the police came and took a report from my neighbor across the hall. She was fondled and had she not fought with her aggressor she certainly would have been raped. She moved within weeks and the powers that be would not refund her deposit and from my understanding was being charged for the remainder of her lease which was 3 months. If you can get past all of this let me add the appliances are cheap and break all the time. Toilets need repair often. Air conditioning doesn't work correctly. Not enough tonnage for the space they need to cover. One last thing if you don't mind listening to your neighbor going to the bathroom or to their everyday conversations then by all means come and enjoy. Sorry no good news but if you go elsewhere you will be happier I guarantee it.

If you are considering renting an apartment here, keep looking. The management company is inept and rude. It is their policy to screw their tenants out of money. Don't bother calling their managers, they are just as rude and unethical. This complex has more dogs per square foot than a puppy mill, which is bad whether you like dogs or not. The walls are so thin that you will hear your neighbors fighting and some times it gets physical. This is a great party spot for local un-supervised teenagers, they love to hang out in the parking lots and the surrounding woods until the wee hours of the morning or until they puke all over the streets. The shoddy appliances break frequently and you will have to wait days for them to get temporarily repaired. They will break again. Once you do finally get out of here, prepare to wait months to get your deposit back, they wont give it to you, if they can help it. Please do not rent here.

Pros: uh?

Cons: everything

.

DO NOT RENT HERE! This is a slum. From domestic disputes to vomit in the streets, it does not feel safe here. Management is unreasonable and this company loves to nickel and dime it's tenants. Your appliances will break, be prepared to wait several days for a temporary fix at best. There is so much more out there, do not settle for here.
