Hello everybody! I'll be moving to Tyler, TX soon in mid-spring from a small town in Wisconsin, and have been looking for apartments in the area. I've checked out Autumn Glen apartments.

Does anybody have any experiences with that apartment complex/area? What is the crime rate around that area. I'll be happy to hear about any other suggestions of nice apartments in nicer areas of Tyler. Thanks!

Aww...what a blast from the past!!! I lived in Autumn Glen when I was going to graduate school in Tyler from 1992 to 1995. Back then, they were super nice and cute, and in a very safe area - I even made friends with my neighbors and am still in touch with one of them! They're still in a safe, convenient area but I have no idea about the upkeep of the apartments themselves because I haven't been back into them since I left. But the area is still convenient to everything and surrounded by safe housing.

That's pretty cool that you went down there for graduate school! Oddly enough, that's what I'm are going down there for, as the wife is going for graduate school there, (currently in Varisity apartments :S??). So we're both looking to move to a nicer complex. Thanks for the comment, it sounds like a good place to live.

they just had a fire there a week ago, and their management is the same one that manages the complex where im living in--and coincidentally our complex had a fire on the same day. i can only say you would NOT be happy with how they are handling the victims of the fire (speaking from experience).

you might want to make reservations for hunter's glen apartments way ahead--they're always fully booked as they're one of the best complexes in town.

Yep, grew up about 25 miles outside Tyler, went away for college, came back for graduate school, then left again. I really enjoy Tyler and it has grown sooooo much!!!

Thanks for the update on the fire. I didn't know that :S. I took a look at Hunter's Glen, and it seems more reasonable with cheaper prices for larger space. Is there any other places you'd recommend in Tyler?

The Hudson next to Hunters Glen should be a good choice as well. Let me see, The Mansions, garages many floor plans 40 buildings, in the Cascades Development on the West Loop near the Stretford High Rise and All Saints High School.

Heck, what's the name of the nice complex with garages on Kinsey Drive, just off the South Loop? A good one. Help me out "Metro", there are others, The Tyler Apartment Guide would help for at least a drive by.

Oh yeah, a little farther gap are the new Cumberland Gap Apartment right before the new Loop 49 toll road. Oh, the Madison on Old Jacksonville Highway at Grande.

I lived in the Quail Creek apartments a few hundred yards from there about ten years ago. You'll find apartments with a very similar constituency and "niceness" in any college town across the nation. There was the odd vehicle break-in, but that's a fairly nice part of Tyler and I don't think you'll have any complaints about the place that you wouldn't have about upper-middle / lower-upper tier apartments anywhere else.

In other words, those are nice. Not fancy or whosey-whatsey, just nice, normal apartments.

The ones off Kinsey are The Bridges but kinda pricey. Quail Creek are decent and safe. Stay away from Salado, good area but they take anyone. the Woodlands across the street are still nice. Tyler is very nice but just as in any town has it's shady sides.

I stayed at Autum Glen in 98-99 and it was great then! Stay away from Bullard Crossing! DH and I lived there when we first were married in 2001 and they were terrible! We had issues with the upstairs apartments washing machine leaking into our apartment and we could not get them to fix it. Ruined tons of our furniture. That area is really nice though. We also lived in The Arbors on Chimney Rock and they were great. There is another nice complex across the street from The Arbors called Hunters Glen that is very nice.
