My experience at bradford arms for 6 years was extremely positive. Virtually every category I experienced I would mark as 5 stars.
Customer service - they have regular office hours 9-5, and an emergency contact 24/7. Any issue I had I always got an immediate response. During my time they replaced my microwave, both fans, and even my bathroom vanity all within weeks of my request, at no charge.
Appliances - had a very nice fridge, microwave, dishwasher. Airconditioning and heating worked very well for me.
Rates - very competitive for the area. I have seen many similar apartments easily 30% higher in NJ.
Neighborhood - friendly people, nice walking routes and hills. Very safe area. I would say the general population was older.
Location - right next to a bus if you go into the city for work (or fun). Close to local shops and grocery stores. My one issue I experienced was ordering food. Deliver drivers (and taxi drivers) always had an extremely difficult time finding the place. I never figured out a perfect system to get them there. It can be a challenge.
Pool - great, well maintained seasonal pool. Not packed, has chairs to lay on, safe with lifeguards.
Privacy and Noise - overall, very private area. Not a lot of traffic around. In regards to noise, it can depend on your neighbor of course. Most of the time it was fine. I had some neighbors that would play music pretty loud. But nothing crazy. Overall a good experience.
Deers - there are A LOT of deers around cedar grove. They are like pets basically. They are not aggressive. But not something I enjoyed for sure.
Parking - I never had an issue finding a parking spot. I also had a personal car port. Not every room does you should ask if you can get one that comes with a port. Sometimes people did park in my car port which was annoying.
Seasonal services - they would always take care of the grounds, such as snow plowing, etc. Very well kept. They also set salt next to each apartment for safety.

Whenever there is a problem in my apartment, it is seen to within 24 hours unless it is an emergency. The two women who work in the office are always helpful and are very friendly. Also, the outside of the apartment complex is kept very nicely.

Very pleased and it would be an excellent rating except for the terrible Washers and Dryers they have here. I travel out of the development to a Laundromat to do laundry

Bradford Arms includes garages and storage "pens" that provide a lot of extra storage space if you need it. The general upkeep of the grounds is always very good. Laundry rooms are tidy, sidewalks always shoveled after a snowfall, parking lots and streets are plowed quickly.

Great place. They were always prompt with repairs. I had a great three years living there.

Lack of organization with parking assignments. Poor laundry facilities. A/C units and kitchens not properly refurbished for new tenants. Well maintained grounds, and excellent service and attention from all maintenance and office staff.

The complex is extremely clean, quite and well maintained. I have lived here for over a year and I truly love it. The maintenance crew is available at all times to fix any issues. The apartments are spacious with excellent heating and a garage is included at no additional charge.
