I have been here a little over 2 months and must admit, the staff have been so caring and concern about my transition. They have addressed all my issues and placed top priority on them. I would like to mention Nicole (who has been fabulous) took me from point A to living in my comfort home, Ashley the (manager) who has/have been so gracious in my comfort here at Cortland in making things happen. I would be amiss not to mention Tyler and ReAnne who greeting and loving personality makes me and my friends feel like family. Kevin (maintenance) makes all attempts to address my issues to the best of his ability. Sometimes time is not on his side and understandably so. We all have limitation in the work place which place some things out of our control, and Kevin with his soft polite demeanor always make you feel like I/you matter. I really love my new home and family (staff). John

Overall experience has been great. Location is convenient, plenty of parking spaces, gym is nice and clean. The complex has been maintained well so far. Although noise can be heard in the hall, it's quiet inside the unit.

I looked at several other potential apartments across the city but Cortland Decatur East immediately felt like home. Brianna did a fantastic job of showing me the property and amenities and answering my many questions on site and via phone/email in the days after my tour. She has also been extremely helpful in the application process. I love the location, amenities, and my new community. I can't wait to move in!



Cortland East Decatur is a great building in a great location! Walking distance to "everything." Excellent MARTA access and a mile walk to Decatur on a nice quiet residential street. This is our first foray into apartment living, and so far so good!
