This landlord is the worst individual I have ever leased from in my life. He's crooked, completely unprofessional, sexist, extremely vulgar and highly dishonest. I should have known the day I signed my lease when he reached over and kissed me on the lips not to mention the crude remarks he made during the walk through that I won't even go into. Without permission or prior notice began with Walking into my apartment for the first 2 weeks every chance he got without knocking making comments such as oh I was hoping you'd be naked . Of course I find out he had arrested for this in the past for entering a man's apartment the first day you moved in and was caught watching him using the bathroom. Totally disgusting individual I wish there were laws to bar individuals such as this man from renting to the public. My Apartment was left in Immaculate condition, lease was fulfilled, notice was given but he was out of town due to his mother's death for two months following the day of my move out and even though he never return by $1000.00 deposit I never pursued it because it was honestly worth not having to ever be around this individual I have any dealings with him to let it go. However three and a half years later he has the audacity to file a collection against me for $1,500 which I'm having to file a lawsuit in small claims court to rectify. Although I live literally less than a half a block from that property he never supplied me with anything relating to my deposit or any charges he could dream up after my move out. His greed and lack of morals and any form of decency never ending. Good luck hopefully this is helpful in protecting others from having to go through what so many others have gone through leasing from this individual.
All in all, Camden has been my favorite place to live. I've lived in Las Vegas, Dallas, Austin, Oklahoma City, and Chicago. I lived here for three years before attending Law School in Oklahoma City, and upon graduating CFM was the obvious choice when I moved back to Dallas. Sure there are little problems here and there, but every place has problems. Keep in mind this is a large community with 1000+ units, managing that type of volume can be difficult but CFM does extremely well given the circumstances.I've spoken with friends who chose other places after law school and they cannot believe the amenities and value here. I do not plan on moving anytime soon. I will be staying here until I purchase my first home (but in reality, this place will always be my home!) Also, I think I speak for all of us when I say good riddance to TWC!Have a great day everyone.
Maybe its not the best place to live, but its a starting point for anyone starting new. I've lived here for several months and love it. I know my neighbors and feel comfortable living here. I read lots of negative things about Montecito Creek. My friend lives here longer than I have, and she likes it as much as I do. The apartment I got has vinyl flooring and I love it. The location is good for me since its off the freeway. I did have a few roaches here and there but they are gone, pest control treated my apartment and after 2nd treatment I've had no problems. It is an older complex, I understand, but everything is good now. I have reffered a friend here and get rent discount for reffering friends and family.
Overall, this is a very nice apartment complex; 5 floors, great layouts, but you do pay for location and style. For about 750 sq feet, my rent was over $1000/month...because the apartment is in uptown Dallas. As far as atmosphere, you get a lot of overgrown frat boys and sorority girls. I was there for 2 years and my rent went up about $300 from the first to the second year. I believe it was to increase at least $200 more if I had stayed for a third year. If you are set on living in Uptown and being a 30K Millionaire, go for it. It is a nice place to live, secure-you fob in an out of the building and the garage, and the apartments themselves are nice.
