There are really good community managers and then there are those who purposefully make an extra effort to reach a rarer category, namely all-around excellence. Our current community manager Gillian- she's in that rarer category. Whether a topic is easy or hard she's there to fix it or make it better to the best of her ability. She sees her renters as individuals and communicates caring and reassurance always.

Moving from California site unseen was stressful but the Manager, Sierra was such a great help. I must have called her 10 times with questions and every time she was very helpful and even did a video tour of the location of the Apartment, etc. She is exactly what a good Manager should be! Thank you Sierra! Kelly and Scott

My family and I have been living at Villa Serena for well over 7 years and so far it’s been a pleasant experience. Pros: Let me began by saying the new management team have been very helpful. The property manager on duty, Sierra, has been friendly and generous! We’ve reported some problems that we had at our apartment unit and all of which are being fixed. Also the maintenance worker on site is a knowledgeable worker, I admire his effort! The community is also very quiet during night hours and during day time the residents walking around are friendly! It’s also very convenient we have a laundry room on site. The low prices for washing our clothes is great and I am glad they replaced it with newer machines! Cons: I have a few things I want to bring to attention about the complex and hopefully this will be resolved in the near future. The pool, it is a fun convenient to have but I can tell during the summer days the water doesn’t look the cleanest. There were several occasions when I sent for a swim the waters had a cloudy look and the odor had a strong smell of urine mixed with chlorine. The landscape at the property looks okay. I can tell not a lot attention is noticed when it comes to the native plants, grasses or the gravel. I can tell whoever is maintaining the plants needs some training when it comes to hedging. Also, the gravel needs a little bit of care, a good raking in areas that are bare can easily resolve the issue. Also the grass, I do hope they can replant new sod because it doesn’t look the greatest. I believe the residents dogs have definitely shared a toll of making the grass look the way it is. Although, it is nice that the parking lot is cleaned majority of the time! It would be courteous if the landscapers can at least blow off the dust from our vehicles when they finish leaf blowing. At times I do see feces around the property and residents at the property should be more responsible about their pets. Overall, Villa Serena has been a great place to live! I would definitely recommend to anyone that’s looking for an apartment out in the Eastridge neighborhood. Thank you for taking the time of reading my review and hope you have a good day!

Just moved in and we can't thank Sierra and Tina enough! Sierra went above and beyond to get everything done online for us, and had everything in a folder upon our arrival. The mountain views are beautiful, the property is clean and quiet, and it's very animal friendly. We are grateful for all the work put in to get us an apartment. I'd recommend Villa Serena Apartments!

I had been helped by a really nice member of management named Sierra at my previous apartment complex and was sorry when she left. Then recently when I was changing my apartment complex and looking for a new one due to rising rents, I was astonished when I called Villa Serena for information and heard Sierra"s voice on the other end of the phone! Found her again! Of course she answered all my questions and having dealt with her before I knew her comments and answers could absolutely be depended upon to accurately portray Villa Serena. At the end of our chat I just took the apartment I had called her about, not something I would ever ever do except for the fact that Sierra was on the other end of the phone. Of course this has a happy ending, like my apartment and the complex sitting in the foothills of the Sandias, and in addition to Sierra I also got a great community manager in Tina and a great dependable maintenance supervisor in Diego. Anyone can show you a nice apartment as we all know from experience, but in the end the quality of your experience and new home depends to a great extent on the team in charge, both front office people and maintenance. I'm lucky I found Sierra again and Villa Serena. I got that great team.

I had originally met Sierra when she was at Broadstone Heights Apartments and at that time found her to be easy and comfortable to bring requests and questions and problems to as they arose. I was really sorry when I heard she left, almost like losing a "professional friend" in some ways. When looking for a new place I wanted to find more information on Villa Serena Apartments and was astonished when Sierra answered the phone. I just happened to find her again! That made my decision easy. Since Villa Serena met my requirements, and Sierra was there, I took the apartment sight unseen. With Sierra around one can expect above-and-beyond performance coupled with a warm and caring brand of professionalism. And we all know that with apartment living management and its attitude towards residents makes either a good or bad experience. Oh, and by the way, the apartment was everything I might have hoped for too!

Sierra and Tina have made the move-in process absolutely seamless! They've been extremely helpful and informative. On our move-in-date they had all of our paperwork in a folder and ready for us, including a hard copy of our lease that we were able to sign virtually. I've only been here for a week but I can tell that management holds themselves to a high standard of professionalism.

So very glad that we came to live here.

I had given a pretty harsh review at first about this place. TBH though every time I asked for help with the office they were happy to make sure I didn’t get penalties if I could at all possible avoid! Much appreciated! They are Newish management and still getting all their systems in place to run smoothly. Also informed me that staff was max capacity and work orders will be getting done much more efficiently.! Went from one star to four!

Moving from out of state, sight unseen can be stressful. Tina and Sierra were nothing short of amazing. When we had a few road bumps applying they remained consistent, resourceful, and so kind through the entire process. Apartment was move in ready, and we have had no issues thus far. Thank you ladies and your team for all you do!

We looked at a lot of apartments when coming to Albuquerque and we read a lot of horror stories but Villa Serena wasn't one of them. From the start to the finish Angelica Vigil worked hard to make sure our process was smooth and our Apartment was clean and ready when we got there. We loved that the apartment had places to park right in from of your unit and the rental process was smooth. We got in and began living our normal life quickly. Would recommend. They took care of us well.

Great location, quiet complex, family friendly, very prompt maintenance, and friendly office staff. I feel very well taken care of here at Villa Serena. It’s clear management & owners really care about their tenants. I do wish they would put security cameras around, especially by the mailboxes because I’ve had my mail stolen a couple times already.

I’m a little late on the review and understand there’s new management, I lived here 1.5 years ago. I loved this place. The whole time I lived here, my roommate and I found a total of 1 spider in the apartment. No roaches, no other bugs ever. It’s so clean and was given to us in good shape. Being a smaller complex, I think it was easier for maintenance to manage and it was always beautiful. Barely ever even a leaf on the sidewalk. I felt safe, never heard of any crime on the property and loved living there. I hope with new management they keep up with the amazing complex they have and amazing service they provided to the residents as they did when I was there. Good price for what you get. PNM can be a little expensive, but if you’re careful with the refrigerated air, shouldnt be a problem. I’m looking for a new apartment again from where I am now, and this is #1 on my list.

I lived here for almost 2 years and I would have stayed longer if I could of. I'm a 22 year old single girl so safety is a big thing for me, but I always felt at home and comfortable here. Susan the apartment manager is AMAZING and helpful and stays on top of everything. It is a safe complex, clean and well kept. The maintenance guy is super sweet and friendly and answers requests in a timely fashion. I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe and quiet place to live that's not ridiculously over priced for the area!!! The only thing I can say on the negative side is that the apartments are all-electric so the PNM bills got pretty high during the summer while running the A/C. Other than that I loved this place and would definitely consider returning!!!
