submitted by Vladimir K. - |Recommended: NoReview — It’s a good place to live in but a lot of things are breaking in the apartment. Like toilets are getting clogged all the time, fridge breaks once a month, the kitchen sinks are getting clogged...

submitted by Jessica G. - |Recommended: YesMy Review — Area is pretty nice. Lots of parking. Overall its a good apartment so far.

submitted by Tran N. - |Recommended: YesClean, nice staff, no issues with parking. — Clean apartments. There are some noise issues with some neighbors who have dogs that bark all night long or very pungent smells from neighbors cooking that fill the entire building. Also there is an issue with trash where the property still needs to figure out. Giving us the option of garbage pick up then removing it entirely without any solution obviously has resulted to seeing garbage thrown in the coves by the door entries is very unsightly. Gym has electrical issues for over 6 months.
response from property -Thank you for your review Tran, we appreciate your feedback. We have been working to improve several of the things you mention and you will see the improvements happening over the next several months. We strive to make sure all of our residents are happy and we hope these changes will give you a five star experience.
submitted by Carla V. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — For 4 years I have resided at The Element with my son. The property is well maintained, near good schools, churches, libraries, restaurants, and close to highway, airport and Rosemont blue line. A hidden gem away from city noise. Amy and Lindsay are extremely professional and understanding. Ty is very friendly, cordial and professional. Tyrone is efficient and professional, quick I would definitely recommend The Element to friends and family.
response from property -Thank you for your five star review Carla. We are so happy to have you as a resident the last four years. Our team strives to provide excellent service to all of our residents and we are so happy you have had such a great experience here at The Element.
submitted by Angela M. - |Recommended: YesI think the staff does a good job with concerns of the residents. — My main concerns are the dumpsters overflowing and the residents not being responsible for proper cleaning. No one wants rodents because of the trash.The second concern is the rudeness of people not picking up their dog poop. Plenty of free doody bags at least clean up behind your pet or enforce no dogs allowed. Lastly are the dim lit entryways. Please replace and fix.
response from property -Thank you for your review Angela. We appreciate your feedback and will look into the issues you've mentioned. Currently we are replacing lights with more energy efficient LEDs so you will notice those soon around the property. We also care about how trash and pet waste are disposed of so we do send bi-weekly reminders to residents with best practices. We hope with the changes you will have a five star experience her at The Element.
submitted by Kaiya M. - |Recommended: YesDecent place to live — Overall, I am happy with the complex and location. However, pest control seems to have low intelligence because common sense needed to kill mice seems to be lacking
response from property -Thank you for your four star review. I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with pests. I would be happy to have them check your apartment again as we want to make sure any issues are taken care of asap. Please let us know what else we can do to give you five star service as that is always our goal.
submitted by Ashley P. - |Recommended: YesExcellent — It's very quiet and people in the buildings are very friendly 😊

submitted by JAROD W. - |Recommended: NoCould improve, could be worse — its not terrible personally i like it if i'm paying 1500 and i know its not worth that much.

The staff that work in the office are so friendly and accommodating They're always answering questions and they take the time to really get to know you, not just as a tenant, but as a person.
