Resident Reviews

Average Rating (4.4/5)

By Shadai Vaughan, Mar 07, 2023 from Google

Location is nice. Apartments are very very outdated and should be updated given priced apartments are over 1k. Gate is broken and has been for years so there are cars in and out never knowing if they live there, parking first come first serve so because of broken gate at night time there is hardly any parking available. Pool is very small and usually overcrowded. I have seen people walk in from the broken gate and go to the pool. Unfortunately, I had a leaking problem living on the 1st floor, ceiling would leak in different rooms and random times. Most apartments are door to door from neighbor so this makes you hear every time your neighbor opens and closes the door. The one great thing is space, the unit I had was very spacious. Two walk in closets. When it comes to deposit take all the pictures and videos you can. I was given less than half of my deposit back from office error and incorrect deductions. Overall what led me to move was paying a high rent for extremely outdated appliances and not having the security of a working gate.

I lived at Sawmill Creek and my experiences here aren't too badd. The office and maintenance staff will always try to help out as best as they can. I totally understand that there is a shortage of maintenance personnel but with a little patience & understanding Sawmill Creek is a pretty nice to live.

Haven’t moved in yet, but Adrienne is amazing! She went out of her way to show us all the apartments that are available, and the weather was horrible. The apartments we viewed were very clean and up to date. The lawn and plants around the apartment are so up kept I was shocked!

We are currently in the process of moving into Sawmill and so far we've had a wonderful experience. Adrienne has been so helpful and has been such a pleasure to work with especially at this trying time for our family. Thank you to everyone over there that has and will be helping us in the upcoming future.

Alexis is AWESOME! She is the best apartment manager ever, and I have lived here for seven years. I reported a broken stair and it was replaced before I got home from work. Within seven hours it was fixed. I’m constantly amazed at her efficiency and understanding always having time for me even though I know she is busy. I love living here at Sawmill Creek! The manager sets the tone, and it is good here. Her entire staff is way above average! I recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe comfortable place for your family to live.

The apartments are a bit old, but they are well maintained. We arrived to a freshly painted, newly carpeted apartment. They are spacious with lots of storage. The rental costs are very reasonable. The staff are friendly, helpful, responsive, and definitely pet friendly. Other positives are proximity to the airport, Ochsner Medical Center, Airline Highway, and the Earhart Expressway. If I need an apartment again in the area, in the future, I will definitely look to Sawmill Creek.


By Scott Tracy, Jul 13, 2022 from Google

There have been some ups and downs but when you realize what Alexis and the staff have been through it is really amazing that they have not said the heck with it and quit. 70-80% of this huge complex was destroyed after Ida. 2 months after the storm the manager and some of the staff were replaced. Alexis walked into a nightmare. 1st Lake allowed a few people to stay if the apartment was deemed partially livable. The staff hit the ground running. They dealt with unbelievable obstructions and also tried to fix issues of the people living here. I know because I had a few. One was my AC. She had people look at it 5 different times and finally one night I caught what the issue was. Of course with this heat and my medical issues I got a little frustrated. It is fixed now and I just have to remember she did her best trying to get it fixed but, the issue was one of those fixes that nobody could find until it finally goes big. She has also been cleaning the grounds up, repairing outside lighting quickly, and really making this complex a nice place to live again. I had issues with my apartment for over 4 years that I constantly sent in maintenance requests over & over and were never ever addressed. Alexis has been addressing them one by one and I am so happy now. Keep up the great work and if I can be of any help let me know. Scott
