I rented from Brandywine for two years. In the two years I lived there, the security gate was closed approximately twice. My favorite would be when they would activate the incoming gate, so that cars going in should use their access cards, but they would leave the exit gate wide open. Of course, criminals are going to obey the enter/exit signs! The maintenance was terrible. I would call numerous times to get something fixed, and I would always get the run-around. Usually, they would tell me when they were coming, and I would make arrangements to leave my dog at my parents' house. Inevitably, they wouldn't come that day but would show up on some unannounced day and then leave me a nasty (and usually illegible) note about my dog (he's a cocker spaniel afraid of his own shadow). I was in a 2 br/2 ba apartment, and I had one toilet that never flushed well the whole time I lived there, and it was never fixed. The walls of my apartment were paper thin. I knew more about the intimate life of my neighbor than I ever wanted to know. The one good thing about them was that they really didn't go up significantly in their rent from one year to the next, and the grounds were kept pretty clean. The pools were nice and generally well kept, although you could never be sure that someone would open them when the signs said they would.
