I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My parents moved to Regency Crest. What they like about the place are the spaciousness of the apartment that they chose, the helpfulness of the community, the assistant community manager, and the friendliness of the neighbors. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They have some activities and the folks have been nice to invite them to the activities in case they weren't aware of when the bingo was or the ice cream social was. In addition to the manager, the staff has been great.

Regency Crest was just another standard apartment building. Each one of the apartments is set up differently. They have areas where you can go around and be social. This is like a market-rate apartment building that was built specifically for 62 or 55 plus. In the apartments, you have all you need, like your washer and dryer, dishwasher, and all that kind of stuff. The staff was pretty friendly. This location is on MIHU (Moderate-Income Housing Unit) and I asked the lady about that at the end of the tour because I'm trying to find a place to live where it's never caused me a whole arm and a leg and the rest of my body. So, she kind of didn't want to talk about it. She said, "We would, but if we have an MIHU that comes available, we try to offer that to our existing residents," and I don't think it was fair. This is not the right answer to give to a person coming in and asking about it. I'm on an MIHU now and they didn't say to me that they're looking for people already in the building who wants to move into the MIHU. They said, "Sure! We have some. As soon as one becomes available, we'll let you know." That's how I got in here. I didn't like their response. They have a courtyard and it was OK. They offer an indoor garage. It's kind of expensive, but they offer it, and they have a waiting list for that and that, I can understand, but then they have enough parking out on the perimeter for you.

We toured Regency Crest. They were fabulous. It was perfect for my mom. But the community was just more than she would be able to pay. Everyone was very pleasant. Even one of the residents held a conversation with me about how much she loved that place. She's been there 12 years, and she loves it. The person who gave us the tour was very pleasant. They had some type of continental breakfast that morning and she invited us for that. It was a lovely facility, and the staff was great. They were quite informative and told us everything we needed to know. But it was just too steep as far as doing the monthly rent and other items. The continental breakfast was very nice, very good.

Some of our friends that live here near us are moving over there at Regency Crest in December. I liked it. It was clean and it was a little more modern than what we're in. The only problem that we had was the one-bedroom was on the too small side and we didn't feel like we wanted the two-bedroom because then when you go to a two-bath, it's a lot more footage. If it was just one of us, the one-bedroom would have been fine, but for both of us, the two-bedroom was kind of too much. They said they could give us a garage, but it would be a year and then when we called up and told them that the reason we didn't want to move there was because we wanted a covered parking space, they said, "Oh, we can get you one." So, we kind of wondered what they did there. It looks like an apartment building on the outside, but they have a courtyard on the inside. It's just really pretty. They had a nice swimming pool, and they had a nice exercise room. The rooms were nice.

Looking for a place for my parents I stumbled across this gem! I had been searching for a year visiting many places but Alta at Regency Crest exceeded my expectations. It’s clean, the apartments are modern looking and the grounds well kept. The staff has been awesome! Especially Tai the manager. She has been a pleasure to work with and so personable. I believe my parents will be in good hands when they move here and I am grateful!

My husband and I have been living here at Alta at Regency Crest for about a year and a half. We moved in during the height of the pandemic. I have to say that the management here handled the situation wonderfully. I felt very safe following their guidance. Alexis and Tai are truly professionals. They are always here for us and respond quickly to our needs. They do a great job giving us awesome social events that are not only fun but beautifully presented. I also would like to commend our maintenance crew Don and Damon who are always on the ball, responding quickly to our requests. I feel at home here.

I've been a resident at Alta at Regency Crest for almost 5 years and it is very nice here. The residents are very friendly, as well as the Management Team, Maintenance Staff and Custodian. The Amenities are many. Such as an Indoor Swimming Pool, Yoga Room, Beauty Salon, Exercise Room, and Game Room. There is also an outdoor Courtyard with tables, chairs, umbrellas and a pond with Ducks that waddle around, that are so cute and will surely bring a smile to your face. Also, there is a a large Great Room with a fireplace inside where residents congregate, play cards, various games, enjoy food (compliments of the Management Team) and a large glass Fish Tank to watch and enjoy all the beautiful fish. There is plenty to enjoy here or you can just sit and enjoy being alone on the front porch. Gazebo or some of the other beautiful areas on the premises!

Alta at Regency Crest offers a 60-day period of free service assistance from their maintenance staff for new renters so you can move in comfortably without incurring unexpected costs. That is a nice touch! We have utilized that time and their service to enhance our apartment on many levels and have to say that the maintenance staff has been simply outstanding in every way. Damon and Don have cordially and professionally accomplished all that we've asked with a smile and great skill. It is so refreshing to have cordial, capable staff when you live in a shared environment!

CLEAN AND ATTRACTIVE FRIENDLY AND SAFE The residents have become like family. The office staff (Tye and Alexa) aim to please. The maintenance team is on top of things and willing to make us comfortable. My husband and I are very happy we chose The Alta for our home. Our apartment is spacious and beautiful. I use the pool for my arthritis issues. Line dance class is fantastic and fun. The location is great. Shopping is easy access and we are close to our church and children.

Just wanted a leave a review for Alta @ Regency Crest in Ellicott City, Maryland. When my wife and I were looking for an apartment to rent for 3 months or so in the Baltimore area, we came across some very positive reviews for Alta @ Regency Crest. Since Alta was in close proximity, it was one of the places at the top of our list to consider. My wife and I flew up from Florida, rented a car to look at several locations. In speaking with the office manager Alexis both on the phone and in person, her professionalism and courtesy extended to us made us feel right at home. In showing us the amenities, we were impressed with the cleanliness, maintenance and layout of the apartment complex. If in the market for apartment living, I highly recommend Alta @ Regency Crest. Sincerely, Donald L.

I went to Alta at Regency Crest with a friend. It has a pool, so you don't have to go outside. I have arthritis, and so I go to the Y. But at Alta, I wouldn't have to leave there. The pool is available 24/7, so in the wintertime, I would not have to worry about going outside of the facility. They have a meeting room where you can invite guests in. Those were things I liked about it. They have a courtyard where you could entertain people, and you could go to the courtyard and see other residents. It was a very nice place. The staff was very nice, very pleasant and helpful. They gave us a chance to speak to current residents. I don't know whether they provide meals or not because I went in with a friend and she was looking for a senior citizen apartment. But we did do a thorough tour.

I went to Alta at Regency Crest. She just let us look through a book with pictures and floorplans, and she walked us around to the general areas. The prices are a bit more reasonable, but I wasn't impressed with the office. It wasn't very inviting, kind of drab, the lady that showed us around was OK. They could have used paint in the gazebo area. It needed some TLC, the grounds. It had a full-scale hair salon/barber, it had a full-scale theater, it had an exercise area. The gazebo area was just beautiful because it had the ducks, it does have a heated indoor pool, but it needed an update.

We chose Alta at Regency Crest for my sister because of the amenities and the security of it. We had a wonderful tour. It is costly, but the staff members are absolutely wonderful. They were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, and when they met other residents, they knew their names and they knew their situations. The apartment that we're trying to secure is right next to an elevator, so there are elevators to get you to your floor. There is a courtyard in the middle, which is perfectly secure, and they have a great room that people can use, too.

Alta at Regency Crest was very nice. The person who gave us the tour was very pleasant and nice. What I didn’t like about it is they charge for everything. Also, we would have liked bigger bedrooms. They had an exercise place, a pool, a community place where they get together, and it seemed very nice.

The landscaping crew was doing maintenance of the grounds when I visited Alta at Regency Crest. The parking was accessible and convenient. The facility was more modern than the other place I visited. The apartments were very nice, and the staff was professional and friendly. One of the residents came up and introduced himself. There were other residents -- mostly females -- who were engaged in a Bingo session at the time. The staff member who showed me around gave me the impression that she was really trying to get me to commit to getting a place there. They showed me studios, two-bedrooms, and one that had an extension for a balcony. The walk-in closets were very nice and spacious, and there were modern amenities in the kitchen.

I visited Alta, and it was very good. The staff was very personable, they took me around, and showed me the grounds and everything. It was very nice, but it was too expensive for me, and the price goes up every year. The apartments were a very nice size, they seemed bright, and homey. The people I met were very friendly, they had a choir there, and a pool.

Alta looked very promising with a very pretty floor plan and a good price. It’s just that they don’t cover any of the utilities. It’s a place primarily for seniors. All of the people in Alta were very friendly while we were there for several hours. It was clean, and they had a very nice one-bedroom with a den. They have everything I needed.

Alta at Regency Crest seemed to be nice. It’s in exactly the right spot. However, my wife has difficulty walking, and the hallways are long, so that might be a problem for her. The other thing that we are not happy with is you only get a 1-year lease therefore they can raise the rates as much as 3% a year, and if you live for 10 years, about 30%. Everything looked good. The people were nice. Location was good. The building was kept well. There was a room full of people, and they seemed to be having a good time.

I thought Alta at Regency Crest was lovely and all of the amenities were nice. The problem was its way above my price range for a two-bedroom, and they don’t have any one-bedrooms. The rate increases annually, which was the other thing I was concerned about. People can get together and make their own clubs. They have a lot of space, an indoor pool, pool table, and exercises.

Alta at Regency Crest was a new facility and it was very nice and clean. The courtyard was also very nice and everything was very neat. They had a community bus that could take you where you wanted. However, the problem for me was that I didn't like pets and I could smell it when I got into the elevator although it wasn't that strong.
