Hi everyone,

We’ve been looking at apartments for the past 2 days and we have finally narrowed it down. We need to pick between Quail Valley on Carmel, Colonial Village at South Tryon, and Arbor Steele Creek. Out of these 3, Arbor Steele Creek is the most expensive but also looks newer. All of these apartments are within a reasonable commutable distance to my husband’s job and mine. Is anyone here a current or former resident of these apartments and can vouch for them? So far, the leasing agent at Arbor Steele Creek is the only person that actually lives in the same community and said it was great, but it could’ve just been a sales pitch. We’re both in our late 20’s and looking to live in 1 of these for a few years.

Quail Valley on Carmel is by far the best location however, the units may not be so great in condition. The project was reportedly up for sale a few years back and the apartments were going to be torn down.

I recommend you go visit each complex on Saturday and see what you think. Ask the tenants how they like it.

I lived at Arbor Steele Creek a few years back (2012-2015) prior to moving to Tryon Park at Rivergate. Their apartments are renovated but they are not new. They have done upgrades to compete with the new complexes (i.e. Tryon Park, Haven, Enclave, etc.) and their prices reflect the upgrades.

When I was there, the management and maintenance staff were friendly and attentive. I didn't have any major issues and I was located in the back of the complex, closer to the athletic association field. I had an 'upgraded' 600 sq. ft. 1 BDRM apartment, and it was $675. They have done further renovations and upgrades, added storage units and garages, etc.

Overall, my experience while there, was positive.
