''2012-03-13 12:34:35'' [[nbsp]] DO NOT LIVE HERE. This is seriously the worst place I have ever lived. The management, Riverstone Residential, doesn't care at all about their tenants; they only care about money. They lie to you and treat you like you're an idiot if your appliances don't work (and it's like pulling teeth to get them fixed). One of the previous commenters is right: the "new" carpet is more a burden than a blessing. It never stops shedding and has almost broken my vacuum several times, despite the fact that I've lived here for over 8 months now. The fibers get all over everything and it's never-ending. They just put in an exercise room but refuse to open it during non-business hours, which makes no sense considering nearly everyone in the complex either works or goes to school during that time.

Additionally, like a previous commenter said, they DELETE NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON DAVISWIKI. They know how terrible it is to rent from them and they don't want you to know until you're locked into a lease.

    * Takenadvantage---can you tell me which comments have been removed please? I will make sure they are restored if this is indeed the case. Our crack Wiki editor staff don't allow innappropriate deletion of comments. --["Users/PeterBoulay"]

''2012-03-14 00:31:55'' [[nbsp]] Peter, it seems that shortly after my post, management "un-deleted" the previously deleted posts and they are now back up on the page. Thank you for your concern. I'll be sure to let you know if it happens again. --["Users/Takenadvantageoftenant"]
 * Nothing had actually been deleted, there were just two different pages: "The Edge" and "The Edge Davis (F.K.A. Alder Ridge)". Peter pointed this out and I combined the two pages into this one. --["Users/TomGarberson"]
  * Takenadvantage--please...take a breath. Management has not made any changed to this page--zero. You might want to review the info tab at the top that shows all the changes before throwing accusations around. Tom and I discussed it and Tom did the work. He is not affiliated with the complex at all. --["Users/PeterBoulay"]

''2012-03-15 11:03:53'' [[nbsp]] I'm breathing, thanks. And it's not the deleting comments that's the big deal here, it's the way that management treat their tenants.

In that vein, I would like to point out that after doing some digging on "DJMissChiff," (see comments below) who claims to be a tenant at The Edge/Alder Ridge and talks about how great it is to live there, I discovered that this user is actually THE PROPERTY MANAGER OF THE EDGE, Jeanette Hulse.

 It's funny that you're accusing her of deceit (and it does indeed sound like management is being deceitful) when you're editing under 3 different accounts. Are you aware that your IP address is saved for every edit you make? [http://daviswiki.org/Users/PrettyPlease?action=userinfo PrettyPlease], [http://daviswiki.org/Users/Takenadvantageoftenant?action=userinfo TakenAdvantageOfTenant], and [http://daviswiki.org/Users/Ceebs?action=userinfo Ceebs] all historically have the same IP address. The latest edit by Taken appears to have been made through a proxy in Florida, which makes it all the more amusing. --["Users/TomGarberson"]

''2012-03-15 12:42:59'' [[nbsp]] Tom, Did you stop to consider that, given the fact that this apartment complex offers units that contain more than one bedroom, that more than one tenant can be attached to the same IP address? No, but good job on your investigation. Additionally, I just traveled to Florida to see my family for spring break, which would give an explanation to your "amusing" revelation. Talk about throwing out accusations - I suggest avoiding thinking so narrowly. There is more than one person complaining about management and this complex.

------

There is nothing "funny" about the property management being deceitful. We are honest tenants who have had a horrible experiences and are giving full disclosure to those considering living here. I, for one, would appreciate it if you didn't throw out false accusations against myself and other people when you don't have all the facts. --["Users/Takenadvantageoftenant"]
 *Still looks and feels like sockpuppeting to me. Possibly one of those Wave icons at this point. --["Users/MikeyCrews"]

''2012-03-15 14:39:19'' [[nbsp]] I don't understand this site. It was my understanding that Daviswiki's purpose is to foster discussion about all things Davis - good and bad. I find it disturbing that when tenants post negative comments about an apartment complex, they are accused of sockpuppeting and a ban proposal is put forth. If I didn't know better, I would think that TomGarberson is in cahoots with The Edge. We have explained how we are two people, and if you need further proof, please check the IP addresses from the most recent comments from both PrettyPlease and myself.

At this point it is entirely misleading to flag our accounts as possible sock puppeting. We have adequately shown that we are not the same person and, unless you simply ignore reality, I fail to understand why there is still a question as to this issue. --["Users/Takenadvantageoftenant"]
   * I have not seen an official proposal to ban you yet (I can make one if you really want to see it)....please point out the proposal. Secondly---as to #2---Umm no you haven't. --["Users/PeterBoulay"]
   * Ban proposal? What? I pointed out that you three shared an IP address. You responded and said you weren't sock puppets, that you were all different people. You still skirted around the fact that you're (presumably) roommates. Then the other two accounts turned out to actually be sock puppets for your (presumably) roommate. Did you think that two other people were using the two other account names? Even if it was three roommates, that's something you might want to point out in leaving comments under three different usernames based on a single set of incidents. Look, I don't really care about any of this; I just want readers to be aware of what's going on on this page, which is all kinds of daytime television-level crazy. I added a note on the deceptive comments by management and I added the note on the comments left by you and your roommate(s), because the lack of disclosure seems an awful lot like that [http://daviswiki.org/The_Edge_Apartments?action=diff&version2=16&version1=15 deceit] one of you mentioned. I have no problem with you deleting this whole discussion if you want to go back and edit your comments to make sure readers are aware of the actual situation. --["Users/TomGarberson"]

*Tom, I think what you're missing here is that PP and I don't want to disclose every detail about who we are because of the risk of identification by management and resulting retaliation, which, if not likely (based on our interactions with them), is at least a very legitimate concern. We are not engaging in any type of deceit; PP explained what happened with her accounts. The situation has been presented without deceit and I do not feel it necessary to provide more details about my identification for the reason I just stated.
*Sorry, my mistake. I misread recent changes. As to #2, yes, we have. Please check IPs for all comments made today by PrettyPlease and myself. I had a flight out to Florida yesterday and PrettyPlease is still in California. I don't know what more proof you need. This is getting ridiculous.
  * Deleting our Multiple IP and other macros sure isn't an upright, honest thing to do. Please just stop. --["Users/PeterBoulay"]
  * It is when we fixed the misunderstanding. We are not the same person. Leaving that on is misleading to someone reading it, especially considering that things have been corrected. We are trying to move on here. You are overreacting. Please refer to my friend's comment above. --["Users/PrettyPlease"]

The Edge is an apartment complex in South Davis. Formerly called Alder Ridge Apartments, the complex came under new management on July 1, 2011, and was renamed to "The Edge Davis" in January 2012. Since management has taken over, rent prices per unit have increased $200. This means if you rented in the summer of 2011, each unit would cost you $200 less each month. Management is breaking all leases prior to remodeling and requiring any tenant who lived in a pre-renovated unit to move and pay the new, increased prices.

The community is on the Unitrans P/Q bus line, and is located near shopping, dining, veterinary services, and day care.

The Edge offers one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Each home is fully outfitted with wood burning fireplaces, central heat and air, washer and dryer, vaulted ceilings in upstairs units, and some floor plans offer walk-in closets.

The apartments and the clubhouse were remodeled by the new management and are apparently pretty up-to-date.

Now leasing:

2011-07-07 13:27:36   For the past two years, I lived in a one-bedroom apartment at Alder Ridge. The units are clean. There's a washer-dryer hook-up in the apartment. The pool is kept in good condition. Nevertheless, I had several problems with management during my tenancy. While they were resurfacing sections of the parking lot, they called me at work to threaten to tow my car even though (as they admitted on the phone) I was parked in the correct designated parking area. They had made a mistake and needed to work on the ground underneath my vehicle even though according to the map they provided me and the cones/signage they set out that day, I parked out of the way of their workers. They told me that even though they had made the mistake, they would have to tow my car if I wasn't able to move it within the half hour. They also left me without hot water twice. The second time was for five days, while I had a guest staying with me in my apartment. They thought that allowing me to shower in the model apartment at the other end of the parking lot was comparable to having hot water in my own apartment. The $1000 rent just wasn't worth it for the hassle of putting up with incompetence. —ChristineCoit


2011-07-07 14:22:22   Apparently, ConAm is no longer managing the apartments here at Alder Ridge, and a new company, Riverstone Residential Group, that manages Pinecrest, Renaissance Park, and Silverstone, took over on July 1st. ConAm took down their website (although google has it cached) and Riverstone has yet to update its own website to reflect the addition. Perhaps issues with management are now resolved? Or looking at the wiki pages for Riverstone's current offerings in Davis can help in deciding whether to rent here. —Ceebs


2011-10-04 18:06:57   1) Rent turned in 1 day late= $50; 2) they give you a "courtesy call" to let you know that your rent is late, not the day BEFORE it's late, on the 4th of the month and make no exceptions because it's National policy —AnthonyVasquez


2011-11-11 13:27:39   Hello there, my name is Monica and I am the property manager of Alder Ridge. I can help clear this up. Rent is due on the 1st of the month, however, you are given 2 extra days to pay. So if rent is paid on the 4th, it has been more than 1 day since rent was due. We give a courtesy call to people on the 4th because we assume they might have forgotten. We are only trying to help everyone. Unfortunately, we do not have the authorization to waive late fees if a resident was late more than one time in a 12 month period however, we have just set up a new utility company that will mail our residents their rent bill every month by the 1st to remind everyone rent is due. Hopefully this will help. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to stop by the office and ask us, we are more than happy to help. Thank you. —MonicaAlderRidge


2011-12-08 12:21:55   I have never left a negative comment for previous housing in Davis. I am the first to admit that any apartment will have some issue, at some time. However, I have never felt such a push back on having anything addressed by management as I have since moving in here. Living here, I am often reminded that the sole purpose of my rental is to make the landlord money. The bottom line is always more important than whether I have working appliances, whether I have mold, whether I am paying an astronomical amount for energy costs because the windows are ancient and single-pained, or whether I can use the "amenities."

Management treats me like I am stupid. Don't waste your time on this place. Even if they have "remodeled" aspects of your unit, you will run into problems because of the many years of choosing the cheapest products to fix big problems. I wish I never chose to live here, and will certainly not be renewing my lease. —PrettyPlease


2012-01-22 02:01:18   I have lived in conam management corp owed apartments for 2 years now #1 thing the staff is very unproffesional rude don't want tenants to excersize their tenant right we have been tortured assaulted and our apartment vandalized by neighbors threatened by tenants . harassed by tenants and the security guards which are armed we have also been physically attacked by tenants and their kids . we have 3 letters posted to my front door so all the tenants can see and gloat about us recieving 3 eviction letters asking us to stop all video recording and picture taking off the events that took place on the property and many other issues they the male tenants have flashed us and even had their male children flash us to we are christians and it made us sick and violated our religious conviction by exposing their bodies to us . also we have had racist slurs and they wrote hate on our front window with egg whites yet all these tenant are still living here . even though we pay our rent on time and have reported all changes of income and helped keep the property clean conam management corp would rather evict us instead of them . Please watch my youtube channel apachewoman22 for the visual of some of the events that have occured here in stockton ca . of course the managers and conam management will have some come backs of it's our fault we brought this on ourselves but that is ridiculous conam management corp want everything that's happened here to be water under the bridge . conam management has sued tenants and given the tenant bad credit ratings so they would be denied housing which the tenant was negatively affected by conam management corp . also conam management has had problems with bed bugs roaches rats etc here and at other apartment buildings but they always want to blame the tenant or tenants which people tell you to move but what if your not able to move and where can you move after they leave you with a bad recommendation and credit rating. —apachewoman22


2012-02-06 00:42:20   So does anyone know the dimensions for the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom Riley layout? The actual bedroom dimension not the whole apartment. Thanks, looking into renting from this for the 2012-2013 school year —DannyW


2012-02-22 09:07:04   MANAGEMENT IS REMOVING NEGATIVE REVIEWS FOR THIS COMPLEX FROM THIS PAGE UNDER THE COMMENTS. My last comment discussed how I constantly feel like I am in the way of the bottom line, when management uses old, shitty used parts to replace my broken ones, fails to respond to e-mails, and treats me like I am a stupid child when I have legitimate problems with my apartment. Monica and Nicole (NikkiEdge) are really rude whenever you need them to help with anything, but SICKLY sweet whenever they see you or a prospective guest is around. DON'T rent here. The rent has jumped $150 per unit since September just so you can have carpet that is CHEAP and NEVER stops shedding into your vacuum, new counters, and "new" appliances. You will never use the pool, the hot tub is too cold and has no jets, the gym is only open during office hours, and every time you have a problem with the old apartments that have a fresh coat of paint, management will make it difficult to get things taken care of. You will regret it. —PrettyPlease

2012-02-22 11:09:03   I really like living here. The new pool furniture and outdoor kitchen with gas BBQ'a are awesome! Can't wait for the weather to warm up so that I can take advantage of them. I read a previous post about the managers being rude, but they have recently hired new people in the office...I went in yesterday and they were all really nice and helpful. About the carpet shedding...new carpet will do that for a little while as my aunt had the same thing happen when she got new carpet installed in her house. —DjMisschiff


2012-02-29 20:55:03   DjMisschiff, how long did your aunt's carpet shed? I vacuum several times a week, and the carpet sheds just as much NOW as it did when we moved in last summer. I'm pretty sure that's just a sign that the carpet is CHEAP. CHEAP like everything you don't see immediately but soon discover when you rent here. —PrettyPlease


2012-02-29 22:25:44   I called my Aunt cause I was curious. She had her carpet installed in August and it is still shedding a bit...not like it was though. She said it's something to do with the short fibers and the manufacturers take this shedding into account when they make their carpet and it is not unusual. They told her that she would have to vacuum about 3 times a week, but that eventually it the shedding does stop. I guess I don't understand why you would be upset about new carpet? This would happen anyplace that had new carpet. There are so many other great things about this community, it seems pointless to dwell on a little carpet fuzz. The weather looks like it's going to warm up next week...maybe we can debate about carpet fuzzies in the new cabana :) :) —DjMisschiff


2012-03-13 12:34:35   DO NOT LIVE HERE. This is seriously the worst place I have ever lived. The management, Riverstone Residential, doesn't care at all about their tenants; they only care about money. They lie to you and treat you like you're an idiot if your appliances don't work (and it's like pulling teeth to get them fixed). I live with PrettyPlease and they are right: the "new" carpet is more a burden than a blessing. It never stops shedding and has almost broken my vacuum several times, despite the fact that I've lived here for over 8 months now. The fibers get all over everything and it's never-ending. They just put in an exercise room but refuse to open it during non-business hours, which makes no sense considering nearly everyone in the complex either works or goes to school during that time.

Sure, it's nice that they have new gas grills near the pool. But do you spend the majority of your time there? No, you live in your apartment, and the way apartment issues are handled is the most important thing to me as a tenant. At "The Edge," they are handled abhorrently.

Also, if you are looking for a quiet place, this is not the place for you. They are renovating EVERYTHING, which takes a long time, so there is constant banging/jackhammering/yelling/etc. from 7:30 a.m. until 11:45 p.m. on some days. —Takenadvantageoftenant


2012-03-15 11:03:53  

I would like to point out that after doing some digging on "DJMissChiff," (see comments below) who claims to be a tenant at The Edge/Alder Ridge and talks about how great it is to live there, I discovered that this user is actually THE PROPERTY MANAGER OF THE EDGE, Jeanette Hulse. Screenshots:

Screenshot of her comments on this page, in case they ever get removed: [WWW]http://imgur.com/p76Ds,Ufq38

Screenshot of her profile as "djmisschiff:" [WWW]http://imgur.com/p76Ds,Ufq38#1

I have met with her in person and confirm the image is of her. For confirmation, stop by the leasing office during business hours and see for yourself.

In addition to all of the other reasons why you shouldn't live here, perhaps another to consider is having to deal with a property manager you can't trust. —Takenadvantageoftenant


2012-03-15 11:14:30   Cal. Civ. Code ยง 1710. Deceit defined

DECEIT, WHAT. A deceit, within the meaning of the last section, is either:
1. The suggestion, as a fact, of that which is not true, by one who does not believe it to be true;
2. The assertion, as a fact, of that which is not true, by one who has no reasonable ground for believing it to be true;
3. The suppression of a fact, by one who is bound to disclose it, or who gives information of other facts which are likely to mislead for want of communication of that fact; or,
4. A promise, made without any intention of performing it.

I believe that as the Property Manager, Jeanette Hulse had an ethical duty to disclose that she has a business interest at stake here—clearly she didn't. Do you want to rent from a property where the PM commits deceit and fraud? —PrettyPlease
