We had the pleasure of living there for 1 year. We had a 2 bedroom 1 bath. The apartment is HUGE! Did not have one issue. 24 hour maintenance that was always able to be there within 5 minutes (only had to call them when I locked myself out). Ample amount of parking, quiet, always plowed and salted well during the winter. Landscape is always well maintained. They do not have a gym, pool or playground but is very close to the ymca, hiking and playgrounds. We have an active 2 year old who loved going for walks around the complex. The only reason we left was because we relocated out of state for work.

From the day I entered Oak Brook Commons at its main entrance 19 years ago, I fell in love with the beauty of its park-like landscaping. It was the fall of the year and the trees were aflame with the colors of autumn enhanced by the beautiful flower beds of seasonal flowers amid well-groomed lawns. What impressed me about the complex was that the nature-like setting was not destroyed by the apartment buildings, but instead built into it. As each season past, the flower beds mirrored the changes of the season dictated by the changes in the trees. The outside was obviously well-planned and executed daily by a very hard-working and efficient staff.
When I entered the apartment, I was thrilled to see that these beautiful surroundings were brought inside through large windows in every room and a sliding glass door in the living room. On a sunny day the apartment was drenched with sunlight and on a gloomy day, filled with coziness. The huge apartment included 7 closets; two being large walk-ins. The dining room/office had the potential of several purposes since it had several outlets for the computer, but also provided a very cozy breakfast nook. The living room was spacious and could be used as a dining room/living room combination. Both bedrooms were sunny, large and featured walk-in closets. The master bedroom had an additional closet. There was a large pantry/coat closet, a laundry room with hook-ups, a linen closet, broom closet, hallway closet and even a closet on the very private balcony where one could wile a way time daydreaming amidst a chorus of chirping birds and nature sounds.
The apartments are continually updated keeping them current and competitive; new tile floors, backsplashes, crown molding, to name a few updates. Maintenance of the apartment is excellent. Appliances are replaced as needed; safety checks done constantly, problems attended quickly. The repair area is always left clean. Painting of the apartment and cleaning the rugs are done on a regular basis.
The greatest asset to Oak Brook is the excellent maintenance and office staff. They are hard-working, dependable, friendly, always greeting you with a smile. They often offer to help when they see you are struggling They make you feel comfortable and welcome. They all create an atmosphere of community and home. The owner, the heart of the complex, is on site making sure that he continues to offer a quality home for all that live there. In my opinion he has.

I wish I could give 10 stars! I have been so happy living at Oakbrook — the staff and maintenance crew go above and beyond to take care of the residents. And these past couple of winter months, I have been so grateful for the hard work of the maintenance crew — even with all the other regular maintenance activities they do all day long, they have been out during the wee hours to clear the snow, so that when I have to get up and leave early for work, the roadways and sidewalks are all clear. The office staff also go out of their way to reach out to the residents and make them feel welcome and keep them informed of anything going on. I was so happy to be able to renew my lease and keep living in this community where the staff really cares and makes me feel I am truly home.

We love it here! After much searching around the area, we felt this was the best place to live and it’s exceeded our expectations. The capital region seems to have a lot of “luxury” apartments are very expensive and seem to put all the rent into frills and amenities you don’t end up using, leaving you with a pretty average, smaller space. Here, the apartments are very large and well cleaned before moving in. The staff is excellent…they are very friendly and quick to respond. For example, one night our water heater went out, and within 20 minutes on a Friday night someone came over and was able to fix it. Little things like this make living at Oakbrook stress free 🙂
