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.

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

Just moved in. But so far so great. The apartment is very peaceful. The neighbors are very nice. Management was very helpful in regards to my move in. Kirstie helped me thoroughly with my move in process and she was also very patient with me and kind. Besides the old appliances, the apartment is very nice and spacious.

Fantastic customer service. I had to ask the front office for a lot of help with the move in process and they went above and beyond when it came to helping me with anything I needed. The property is extremely well maintained and apartments are spacious for the rental price.
