See what other people are saying about our The Crest at Brier Creek apartments! At The Crest at Brier Creek Luxury Living, we value all our residents voices, and can’t wait for you to see our luxury Raleigh apartments for yourself. These The Crest at Brier Creek reviews will show you why our Raleigh, NC apartments are a cut above the rest.


With topics in order of importance to me, here's my review after living here for 2 years in a first-floor unit (two adults, no kids). I'm not getting paid for this review, and I don't work for The Crest. - GREAT LOCATION! You're living at Brier Creek, so you're within a few miles of major retail, restaurants, grocery stores an a nice movie theater (which is being renovated as of July 2016 to include new cushier seating). The Crest is kind of separated from the rest of the apartments in the area, just slightly off the beaten path. Even though Walmart is nearby, I've never seen a Walmart cart at our apartment complex (someone out there will appreciate this fact). As of this year, you can still enjoy an unobstructed view of the July 4th Brier Creek fireworks from the south side of the apartment complex. - MODERN STYLING. Dark floors (1st floor only?), open layout, island, dark cabinets, large master bath, high ceilings. After living in a place for two years, you start noticing the little flaws, but it's liveable. The dishwasher is really loud, but the washer and dryer work perfectly. The paint and carpet is cheap, but plenty of natural light (depending on the unit you choose). - PARKING is plentiful, but it depends on what building you select. We requested a corner unit well-beyond the clubhouse/mailboxes, facing the cemetery, but not right next to Hwy 70/Glenwood (road noise). Even at night, no issues finding parking in this area. - WHAT ABOUT THAT CEMETERY? We really liked it. It was quiet, green, and well-maintained. You have a semi-private half-mile trail to take your morning runs or walk your dog. It's better than looking out your window at the back of another building. - SOLID CUSTOMER SERVICE. Every time I needed help, I got it within one business day. Maintenance requests are turned around quickly. - NOISE? Yes, you will hear your upstairs neighbors. This is typical if you're on a lower-level floor, so you just deal with it. We just think of them as our "upstairs family." - VALET TRASH. I'm officially spoiled now. You put it outside your door at night, they take it, and you retrieve your empty container in the morning. I just wish we didn't have to pay extra for this service, but apparently this is becoming more common at apartments. - GATE/SECURITY. True, it is often broken, probably by residents rushing the gate. However, if a "bad" person wants to follow you through a gate, it's going to happen -- broken or not. We don't sweat it. I have never felt unsafe here. It's well-lit. Exercise common caution and awareness. - HVAC. Others complained about broken AC units. In two years, our AC and heat has always worked really well. - PACKAGES. Sometimes USPS/FedEx will deliver right to your door. I've never had any issues with package delivery/retrieval from the office. - POOL. Always crowded in the summer, so we barely used it. I don't get the sense that Crest staff is monitoring residents' activities at the pool. It gets loud sometimes, even though our music devices are supposed to be strictly personal (low volume or earbuds). - KIDS. Interestingly, although they have a dog park, there is no playground onsite. There are several nice parks, trails and community centers within a short drive of The Crest. - PET FRIENDLY. We don't have a dog, but there are many dog owners in this complex. For the most part, the residents curb their dogs. Management puts out notices asking people to report others who don't curb their dogs. I would not run barefoot through the grass. - GYM. It's a free, apartment complex gym. It's basic. There are other gyms in the area if you want to pay for a better fitness experience. - AIRPORT. Pro: perfect for frequent flyers. Con: can be noisy. After a while, for us the sound just melted into the background noise. - FOOD TRUCKS. I hope they keep this going - weekly (or almost weekly) there's a different food truck onsite on a weekday night. Nice! - ICE NEAR GATES IN WINTER. I can't believe someone actually complained about this in another review. It's weather, yall. C'mon!


not bad!



I just moved in and I love it! the apartment I have is so modern and sophisticated. All of my neighbors seem like decent people of all backgrounds. Every room is spacious in my 1ba/1br apartment. One of my favorite things about the apartment is the 9-foot ceilings, which make the place feel and seem even bigger. The location is amazing. It's kind of feel like I live in a mountain lodge/resort, secluded on the hill. It is located near a cemetery, but the cemetery is so neat clean and organized that it's hard to tell it's a memorial garden. It simply looks like and open park on the hillside with neatly arranged flowers lining the fields. It's actually quite serene looking.


Beautiful and safe complex! Great location! Love the fact that everything is new. The staff is super friendly and host Pinterest Parties. The valet trash is so nice and has spoiled me. Highly recommended!!
