Rated 5 out of 5?by Frei23 Loved all staff but one.
My boyfriend and me recently visited Como Park Apartments for a tour. The grounds were beautiful & the apartments seem very spacious. Excited to fill out our applications we headed back. upon our arrival the girl who showed us around had questions for her assistant manager that she wasn't quit sure of while on our tour (she seemed new) but she was very nice! Her manager was very short with her and even more short with us. We ended up taking our applications with us and will be returning because we liked the apartment and location but definitely not because of the staff! We did like the girl who gave us our tour though :-)

Rated 1 out of 5?by Renter01 Poor Customer Service
I'm moving to MN from out of state and after being in contact with the office staff at Como Park, sending my friend who lives there to visit the place for me, and finally visiting myself when I was in town I made the decision to rent there. I was excited because both myself and my friend were told that I would be able to take a short term lease while I transitioned to MN and got familiar with the area. I was extremely disappointed to find out when I went back to apply that I would no longer be able to do a short term lease due to some "winter move-out" clause basically stating that because no one wants to move in the winter, I wouldn't be able to move out because then they would lose money. This clause had not been mentioned to myself, my friend, or explained on the website. They will now be losing money on a vacant apartment because I will not be renting due to the poor communication between office staff members, lack of knowledge about their own property policies, and terrible customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5?by Mindfreak When I was looking for an apartment ...
When I was looking for an apartment, I was in the process of selling the home I had lived in for almost ten years. I hadn't rented in a long time and the market had changed a lot. I was hopeful that reviews posted by others might provide some guidance, but it seemed like the very few reviews I came across would posted by apparently disgruntled former tenants. Consequently, I decided that - if I liked whatever apartment I found - I would post a positive review to help the next person who found themselves in the same position that I had been in.
I moved into Como Park Apartments ten weeks ago. The main reason I chose it was its location, its clean appearance, and its friendly staff. I have not regretted my decision one bit. There were a couple of small maintenance issues that I noted after moving in (e.g. the bathroom sink was clogged) and it was taken care of virtually immediately and with a smile.
It is a little on the expensive side (although comparable to the other buildings I looked at - I think it's just a function of the market). The dryers in the laundry room aren't the greatest and I sure miss having a garage door opener (you have to get in and out of your car to open and shut your garage - if you have one, they cost extra). Other than that, I have no complaints.
I hope this helps whoever is reading this.

Rated 5 out of 5?by Anonymous current resident Friendly staff and a great place to live.
From the time I walked in the door, I was impressed. The office staff was very friendly and informative. That's what initally sold me, that and the cleanliness of the grounds. The buildings are not new, but they and the apartments have been updated. I LOVE all the additional amenities that are included in the lease and although I haven't been able to attend many of the monthly social events, it's a nice offering. Never before have I been given the opportunity to win money off my rent by playing BINGO :)! Maintenance issues are taken care of quickly and even the maintenace guys are friendly! Note that there is a railroad track that run pretty frequently, but I guess I just got used to them as they don't bother me. All in all, this is a great place to live and offers more for the dollar than other places I checked out before choosing this place.
