Eleesa answered on the 2nd ring. She stated the name of the community and she introduced herself. (When using the iPhone, the call must be merged at the beginning which causes a hesitation in connection).

Eleesa asked me what size apartment I was seeking. I told her a one or two bedroom. She told me they had a two-bedroom coming up for $1,041. She asked me how soon and I told her the 2nd week of September. I told I decided to move to Virginia Beach.

She told me the application fee is $49 per adult and a $100 holding fee applied to first month rent at move in. The security deposit is $500. She then invited me in for a tour and gave me the hours of operation. We decided on Monday, August 19th at 10:30 AM.

As an afterthought, Eleesa asked for my name and phone number. I told her Cori Davis, 815-656-1213. She repeated the time back to me and we said our goodbyes.

Overall, Eleesa was cordial. I felt like she was just doing her job and she didn’t exhibit a lot of enthusiasm. She answered my basic availability questions but did not take the opportunity to ask me more questions about my apartment search.

I arrived slightly early at the leasing office, but was greeted immediately by Eleesa, who welcomed me to Bridle Creek and asked if she could help me. I said I was there for an appointment but was a little early. She correctly identified me and introduced herself, shaking my hand. She gave me a card to fill out with information about myself and the kind of apartment I was seeking. She then invited me to sit at the table while I filled out the guest card. When I was finished, she took the card and my driver's license, then led me on the tour.

Comment (Provide as much detail of the Gathering/Probing as possible. This is a mandatory box.):

On the guest card I had to write all my contact information, as well as information about pets and occupants. She used this information as we were walking to discuss what I was looking for in an apartment. She asked why I was moving, and what I was looking for in my new apartment. I said that I was taking a job with the school district and didn't like my current long commute. She talked about the location of the complex near several schools and a grocery store. I expressed interest and asked if there were any good restaurants nearby, but she said it was all fast-food in this area.

Comment (Provide as much detail on the demonstration as possible. This is a mandatory box.):

We went into the unit and she let me look around and ask questions. She did not offer much information as we walked around, but she answered all the questions that I asked. We did not discuss furniture or the placement of furnishings. When I asked specifically about a laundry room, she told me there was one, but she did not show me. When I asked, she said there was no pool, but otherwise we did not discuss amenities and facilities.

When I began to express concerns about space, especially in the kitchen, she worked to build rapport with me by asking about my use of the kitchen and suggesting how the cabinets could be used to store my cookware. I had mentioned on the card that a kitchen was a specific concern of mine when looking for a home to rent.

As she led me through the apartment we stopped at the bathroom. I mentioned that the bathtub was in very poor shape, she assured me that this was likely not the particular unit that I would be renting, and also that maintenance would be refinishing that bathtub before it was rented out. She made sure to point out the new carpet and vinyl flooring.

  •  Total: 19/24

Comment (Provide as much detail on the closing as possible. This is a mandatory box.):

As we were leaving the unit, Eleesa focused back onto the application process and what the next steps would be. I asked if there was any move-in special. I commented that I had seen deals for several nearby complexes when I was searching online. She said that they sometimes offered deals but had nothing going on right now.

She reiterated the application fees, the holding fee, the security deposit, and explained their renters' insurance plan. When we got to the office, she gave me a packet with the applications and her card in it, and invited me to call anytime if I had any questions about anything involving the application. I felt that while she did show me the apartment, she did not point out many good points that would make me want to rent there.

Comment (Provide as much detail as possible. This is a mandatory box.):

I asked whether there was much crime in the area after looking at the window locks. She told me that they didn't keep statistics on that sort of thing, but that if I wanted to research those, I could contact the local fourth precinct. I asked later about whether there were many families in the complex and if a lot of them had children, and she told me that there were all sorts of people who lived in the complex.

Comment (Provide as much detail as possible. This is a mandatory box.):

The community was clean and generally well-kept, although they were obviously dealing with some goose problems due to the season. Eleesa was careful to tell me where to watch my steps and told me that they did frequently scoop up droppings on the property.

The leasing office was clean and neat, with everything in good condition and nice landscaping outside. The vacant unit was clearly still being turned and had some construction equipment in it, but all the rooms besides the bathroom were in good shape. The bathroom needed serious work, the tub was grimy and mildewed, with a small hole in one wall. Eleesa assured me that this was all going to be repaired before the unit was turned over. There were no obnoxious smells in the vacant unit and the closets and cupboards were clean and empty.

I did not observe any litter outside or inside during my visit. I was not shown any common areas, the tour consisted entirely of the vacant unit.
