There is a reason why the best reviews about Yarco properties come from their own employees and the worst come from their residents. This alone should be revealing as to how they do business. They are a family run operation and know nothing about professionalism , decency , compassion or intregity. They only care about your money and will say anything to keep getting it from you. They act like the mafia when you try to get them to fix things and definitely when you try to leave the property. I lived on a Yarco property for years and in those years I had been flooded 3x and after each time I had no new carpet only replaced padding under it. I had no new paint on my walls , the countertop damage from a previous tenant was spray painted over but never repaired , I was disrespected by the manager and her staff , I was burglarized , my car was vandalized , cockroaches invaded my apartment from my neighbors place and I had to self exterminate cause the complex manager refused to send an exterminator over. 2 months later during my inspection she tells me my apartment smells bad and I say it is the bug bombs since you will not send an exterminator. Her exact words were 'I will send the exterminator when I feel like it'. I asked if she thinks that is how a professional is supposed to act and she tells me 'you know what? don't get beat up'. Like really? I contacted corporate to tell them that this is how the property manager of Bridgeport Apartments in Kansas City treats residents and yeah she is still working there. That should say more than enough about how Yarco really feels about their property tenants.Whoever works for Yarco and is replying to these reviews can save the energy and not waste my time with the same crappy response you are giving to everyone else. No I am not going to send you an email that we both know will not get a response. I have called and emailed Yarco multiple times since living on your property and only one call from Yarco was made to me. Why was it made? It was made because someone at Yarco heard from the property manager and she lied about everything. The Yarco representative only called to insult me and deny my claims. Then had the nerve to say 'I don't need to talk to the manager of your complex cause I know her very well and she would never do that'. I said I had proof of everything I was reporting to Yarco and these slum lords did not even want to see it. I swear that if I could have afforded to break the lease and if I had anywhere else to go after my first year I would have been off of their property. I pray for the day that unprofessional people like these and their properties are out of business. I do not recommend any respectable person to rent from these people. I promise that if I could afford an attorney I would be fighting you all in court for all you have done to me and my children.
Paying for the location, but it was worth it.Apartments are decent-the carpet is cheap-elevators are very small-staff is nice-maintenance is quick -no central air-had a little roach problem but maintenance fixed this quickly as well as our AC unit going out -AC unit does not keep apartment really cool during the summers-pipes in shower/tub start to smell sometimes-lots of character, closet space and cabinet space-packages are always kept in a secure area-noise wasn't an issue other than renovating the apartment above us as I work nights this became a problem but only lasted a few weeks -washers area in basement and is not the cleanest space-residents left doors to building open a lot so there was some theft from the basement storage units but felt safe a majority of the time-Lived on the first floor, if windows were open ward parkway was always noisy, but this was expected-neighbors were mostly young and kept to self, a few creepy older men lived here and made me a bit uncomfortable-PARKING IS SO EXPENSIVE, DO NOT PAY FOR IT never had an issue finding spots in the 2 hour limit area, they never ticket for being there unless you don't move your car for 2 or 3 days. Parking garages SUCK you don't get reserved parking and end up parking on the 3rd or 4th floor, and it is very sketchy at night!!! If you are going to pay for parking just buy the spaces through the apartment, they are a little more expensive, but at least you will always have a spot-Old white man does walk around apartment at night... Apparently he is "keeping us safe?" I guess it was "Security?"-All of the restaurants and bars are right out the door so no need to have a DD-security walks around the plaza all night so I generally felt safe walking to the apartment at night-Apartments are what you would expect, they are cute and I would do it again, worth the experience! DON'T REGRET ANYTHING, moving out for a bigger space, but it was well worth the experience.
The maintenance staff are like 3 stooges, but dumber. They fix nothing properly. I once called in a work order for my garbage disposal smelling like sewage and no water draining. The doofus maintenance guy shows up 4 months later and says "maybe it's your fuse box", leaves, and never comes back. What a moron! An inspection is when the staff comes once a year to look at everything the maintenance guys have not fixed since you signed the lease.The assistant manager Carmika chews and smacks bubble gum all ghetto in your ear when you call the office before hanging up on you. The manager Kathy is like a female Vladimir Putin. She yells at tenants, threatens eviction, claims no one but her knows what they are talking about, she threatens people with violence, writes nasty letters, and gives no courtesy calls on personal or professional matters. If you are lucky you might find an office letter from on the lawn because they do not contact you for anything but money.MOVE THERE IF YOU DARE!!
