Do not buy here Jessica is the worst person to deal with . Very disrespectful and rude. All she does is fine people and doesn't explain why . She will tell you I'll explain after you pay it and hang up in your face. They fine you for everything even if you try to rent your house on air bnb. Beware of this community. Crime and burglary rate is at a high . ... more

My response to all those who think their feces don't smell. "How did you not notice those trees before you decided to purchase your home next to your neighbor?" Maybe your neighbor doesn't like your garden weeds and bug drawing infestation that is creeping across to his side creating problems. Maybe he doesn't appreciate your unprofessional landscaping ideas but tolerates having to look it. Maybe your house color decor sucks and is not of his taste. I say plan on moving to a neighborhood with Home owners Association restrictions and see if your happier there. All pool owners knows to keep insects, creatures, grass and debris out of pool. You need to screen it or least cover it when not in use. Do you have it fenced in with a safety alarm in case a neighbors kid or animal doesn't fall in and drown?? Your just a miserable person within your own skin that lives only to complain and threaten your neighbors with lawsuits. Shame on all of you who complain about trivial things as this. You do have too much time on your hands to worry about which way the wind blows tree leaves. I don't like alot of things my neighbors do and problems it creates for us but I as an adult deal with it. I might need them one day in an emergency situation. Pick and choose your battles carefully when you complain about your neighbors. Trees are good for the environment it cuts down on air pollution, purify water, cuts down traffic noise, draws and provides home for birds and nature and they give of fresh oxygen and keeps the dirt from washing out when it rains. What the hell do you do for the environment but release gas, complain, produce negative energy and when you die take up ground space. ... more

WOW!! Some of these comments are off the wall. Perhaps some of the comments were made at a time when the complex was going through a transition. Anyone should be wary of agents that perhaps have a personal agenda. Just saying.

My daughter bought one of these units in June 2010. Yes ... it went through some tough times during the economic turndown She has owned it for seven years now and LOVES it. It was one of the renovated units and she has also given it some of her personal touches to spruce it up. Looks great!!!!! The property is clean and tidy and well kept. I can't comment on the HOA or staff other than my daughter has always spoke positive about her interaction with them. The few times I had contact was also positive and very helpful. The amenities and second to none in my opinion.

We are snowbirds and obviously not there all year. But during the winter we've never had any issues and everyone seems very friendly and helpful. Many of the owners are in fact snowbirds that took advance of good prices several years ago.

I've heard people comment on how strict the HOA is ... there's a reason for that. They don't want it to turn into a junkyard and pigsty. Too often some folks just let their properties go and these folks are trying to maintain a higher level of quality now.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
There are about 5,000 agents in Brooklyn. You need to learn that agents are independent contractors and can choose who they want to work with and who they don't want to work with. If you are looking for cheap rentals or cheap homes to buy, nobody will work with you because it's a waste of their time. If you can afford $3,000.+/month for a rental or buying a coop for $500K, then you will get real estate agents to help you. ... more
