Recent MAA reviews
I love my apartment and my complex. The free printing on site is a huge asset as a grad student. The bus picks up just outside and I love the area. There is a pool, gym, and great clubhouse on campus. My apartment is large and perfect for roommates.
Great place at too high a price
My apartment is very nice and I have had no issues over the past year and a half with the facilities, finding parking, contacting the leasing office, and getting maintenance issues resolved. My only complaint is that the rent has increased too much-- the cost was already at the high end, especially since I am responsible for all utilities and various fees and charges are tacked onto the base rent. Overall I have very much enjoyed residing here, which makes me sad that I may have to move out soon as I can't afford nearly 1500 a month for a 700sf 1b/1ba and significantly cheaper options are available around this area.
Close to University of Dallas about 8 minutes by car
Opposite to beautiful Lake Carolyn where you can go for a walk and run
So Close to Emory
The apartment is very convenient to Emory which is the biggest benefit. It has a pool, adequate parking, a gym, and our apartment is spacious.
The biggest downside is the unprofessionalism and unresponsiveness of the management. They take a long time to respond to maintenance requests and come into our apartment without leaving notices. They do not follow the "customer is always right" business approach and having any problem solved often requires significant follow-up on the part of the resident. Also, the gate is frequently broken.
I moved from a different Post property with an exceptional management team, and I was surprised by the contrast.
Fine in every way but the management could be more responsive, and all of the amenities are made as cheaply as possible.
On a bus route to school, lots of classmates nearby, but not great management
Comfortable and with a very easy commute to the Emory campus
We've had a very positive experience with the leasing office/maintenance during the past two years--they've been responsive/helpful/prompt in helping us to deal with issues--but have heard from tenants who have moved here recently that management/maintenance have been less competent
Great all-around complex
The best things about Post Briarcliff include:
- Great apartment gym
- Close proximity to Whole Foods and Mellow Mushroom
- Close proximity to Emory shuttle stop
- Community patios with gas grills
- Clean premises
- Car wash and vacuum station
The not-so-good stuff include:
- The dumpsters may be quite far for some people
- The campus is large and hilly, so traversing it to get to the mailroom, mailboxes, or dumpsters can be quite a chore.
- A bit pricey.
Good for Med Students
Nice apartments in a good location at an affordable price. Their management used to be awesome, but they've been terrible since MAA took over. I originally chose here because a plurality of med students live here during their M1 year.
ANNOYING, INCONVENIENT, UNSAFE PROPERTY
I've lived at Post for almost 4 years and I'm looking forward to leaving soon.
ANNOYING: Throughout our stay the fire alarms have been faulty, going off early in the morning whenever the atmospheric pressure changes. This has been an issue for years and the property management reported that they had the system repaired multiple times; each time the fire alarms go off again a few weeks later.
INCONVENIENT: Our apartment also had incorrectly installed hot and cold water pipes so our washing machine temperature wasn't correct and our toilets were hot. We told the leasing office about out hot/cold water problem during the first month we moved in (2014) but the pipes weren't repaired until June 2017. Post, after months of 'investigation', had the pipes repaired but the contractor they used made a mess and left messy drywall in both of our bathrooms. The hot/cold water attached to our washing machine was not repaired.
UNSAFE: I recently had a bicycle stolen from the property. It was locked with a heavy duty cable to a bike rack inside of the parking garage (on an upper floor behind a locked gate) and the cable was cut and my bike stolen. I filed a police report but the leasing office has been uncooperative in accessing security video of the parking garage. I contacted the courtesy officer for the property and I was told that for the past year the security cameras in the building have been running but recording were not accessible, and after repeated requests over the past year the recording system has not been repaired.
Love it Here
I've lived here for almost 2 years. It's an easy apartment complex with fairly responsive management, situated close to campus, and a fun/social place! Main complaints is the thin walls but that depends on what unit you get.
Good apartment, not bad for the money. Quiet community and not much hassle from management.
Very average apartment, but does the job for grad school. Relatively inexpensive and close to campus.
Good choice overall
Being close to campus and right around the corner from a shuttle stop is a huge benefit of living here. In addition, a lot of other MBAs live here so you can often carpool to events/school. We ended up living here b/c I needed a lot of space for my family and this was the best deal I could get that allowed a large dog (80+ lbs).
Overall I am happy with the decision, but I really wish management was more responsive and accountable. Ex of poor management: I wanted to rent a storage unit, but it took over 2 weeks to get me the keys and they didn't even clean the storage unit before I was finally given the keys.
It feels like a very safe location and I haven't had any safety issues during my time here.
Note: I don't really drink/party very much so I did not partake in the Post pre-games but I believe there was always someone willing to host on the weekends.
Ok, nothing great, nothing terrible
