Resident Reviews

submitted by Sean K. - |Recommended: NoYou're better off embracing the elements — Look elsewhere. Buy a house. Rent a townhome. It's cheaper and better quality. I'd rather shit in my hands and clap before I ever rent from this place again.
response from property -Thank you for your review Sean. I'm sorry your experience at the Element has not been satisfactory. As we strive to improve I would like to discuss any issues or concerns you may have.

response from property -Thank you so much for your five star review. We want all of our residents to have a great experience at The Element and we are happy to hear you are enjoying our services and community.
submitted by Madeleine M. - |Recommended: NoHorrible Experience — I don't even know where to begin. From the moment I moved in, there were issues. On day one I got to my apartment and the shower head was missing and the doorknob was on the wrong side of the door. I had to call maintenance to fix this. Additionally, the floors are incredibly uneven and not leveled. Already major red flags. While the building is supposed to be smoke-free, I would often smell smoke in the building and this would permeate my apartment. Sometimes it was cigarette smoke, other times it was marijuana. Fast forward to four months later and I ended up having issues with the parking lot. Not only are there potholes everywhere, but the staff failed to salt the parking lot and the sidewalks. My car ended up getting stuck on the ice and I nearly slipped on the sidewalk I'm sure many other residents also encountered this hazard . I ended up sending an email and was informed that they had already salted the road there was absolutely no way this was true . But what do you know...after I complained I discovered a few hours later that the sidewalk and parking lot had been miraculously salted. Additionally, the staff decided to add a new service called Trash Butler, which is essentially a valet service for your trash. They did not notify residents of this until the day before it was implemented AND they charge extra. I am perfectly capable of carrying my own trash outside. Another change they made was adding more secure locks okay, I'll give them a few points for this attempt . However, they expected me to come and pick up the keys during a holiday weekend, otherwise, I would have to wait until the following week. Well, that was a ridiculous request since I needed a way to get into my apartment but the main office was closed. I asked them to place the new key in my mailbox and they refused. Thankfully, my roommate was able to pick up the key.

submitted by Emil M. - |Recommended: YesReally good place to live starting to clean up — Nice community everyone is pleasant
response from property -Thank you for your review Emil. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to give you five star experience at The Element.
submitted by Beatriz O. - |Recommended: YesIt' clean and efficient though the parking lots have a few potholes — I like living here because maintenance is quick to respond, the apartments are clean, and the rent is reasonable. There is always a spot to park and the owners are always trying to throw cute little community events that I think is really nice, though better timing would work more for me. There are a couple pot holes in the parking lot on the Linnemann street entrance that have been there for a year now.
response from property -Thank you for your five star review Beatriz, we are happy you enjoy living here. I also wanted to let you know we will be fixing the parking lots in the middle of July, we were just waiting for our permit.
submitted by Alyson A. - |Recommended: YesThin Walls but Great Staff — Overall great. Some noisy neighbors recently moved in but the office has been very swift in dealing with them. In the garden level, very easy to hear footsteps and other noise from above as walls ceilings are very thin. The back entrances could be better maintained. Lots of weeds and glass in road, people leaving junk on the outside of the doors like old chairs, mostly near the Linneman Rd entrance. Massive potholes located on the Linneman Rd entrance that really need fixing.
response from property -Thank you for your review Alyson. We want you to have a wonderful stay at the Element and we are always trying to improve so your feedback is appreciated. We are ready to repair the parking lot but we are waiting for the permit to be issued from Mount Prospect. As for the grounds I will make sure the maintenance team is taking care of things like furniture and garbage more consistently. If there is anything else we can do to give you a five star experience please let us know.
