WE MOVED IN TO IMT APARTMENTS IN APRIL OF 2016. WE LOVE IT HERE, EVERYONE ON STAFF IS SO FRIENDLY. THE MAINTANCE CREW ARE VERY SPEEDY TO REPAIR ANY WORK ORDER WE HAVE SUBMITTED. I WOULD AND HAVE REFERED IMT TO FRIENDS. WE FEEL THE PRICE IS VERY FAIR. I CANT STRESS ENOUGH ON HOW GLAD I AM THAT WE MOVED INTO THE COMPLEX. NO PROBLEMS WITH NOISE AND I ENJOY WATCHING PET OWNER WALKING THEIR DOGS AND EVERYONE ALWAYS PICKS UP AFTER THEDOGS. THANK YOU TO ALL THE STAFF AND MAINTANCE CREW FOR MAKING THIS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.

DO NOT RENT HERE! Most of the practices/policies are sketchy, horrible communication and do not take responsibility for anything. I contacted the corporate office 4 times with no response. Renting someplace else would be a good idea.

DO NOT MOVE HERE! I've lived here only a short 6 months. Thank God I didn't sign a longer lease. The front office staff are worthless and rude. The maintenance guys don't speak English, don't understand scheduling, and take FOREVER to come and fix anything. We've requested our oven be fixed several times, and asked that they call us before entering the apartment. They don't show up for weeks and they never call. Oven is still broken. I've called to have them update the gate code with my correct phone number 3 times. It still doesn't work. There are a million kids that live here, they are running around at 11pm at night. They constantly leave their toys/bikes/scooters out in the common areas. People let their dogs defecate all over the place and never pick it up. When we first moved in the apartment was filthy. The carpet was stained. I asked that they come clean it. Never happened. Parking is a nightmare. Can't wait to move out of here!
Tips & Advices
Provide the landscape designer with photos of designs you find attractive and might want to emulate. Gardening and architecture magazines can be useful in this regard. It's also important to let the landscape designer know how the  space should function. For example, a space that is being used as a play area for kids will have different objectives from a space being used to entertain friends. Finally, have a clear idea of how much you are looking to spend, since this will impact the build choices made by the landscape designer.
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
