submitted by Samantha K. - |Recommended: YesGood community and apartment but thin walls — Compared to its price, it's a very nice community with great amenities. However, the heating system isn't that great in the winter and the walls are extremely thin you can hear your neighbor's conversation . Otherwise, there is plenty of parking space and storage in the apartment. Finally, their renovated kitchen is great Love cooking and baking here.

submitted by John B. - |Recommended: Yes10 out of 10 experience at Alister. My unit was newly renovated and the grounds were extremely well kept. I lived at Alister for roughly 2 years and don't have one complaint. From the few times I needed the maintenance staff they were always there in less than 24 hrs usually same day . The property manager Mark Meyer is an absolute customer service professional, always quick to respond and willing to work with you to solve any issues. HIGHLY recommend Alister.

submitted by Michael P. - |Recommended: YesBest Staff in the business — I would like to give a special shout out and thank you to Mark. He has been absolutely tremendous the whole time I have lived at Alister. He is responsive, friendly, professional, and all around just awesome. I am transitioning from one apartment to another within Alister and he has answered all my questions and tolerated me calling him non stop. Thank you for all your hard work and assistance.

submitted by Julian I. - |Recommended: YesGood management, well-kept but some concerns — The property is managed well, both from a management standpoint and in terms of keeping the property and units maintained. As with any other property, minor maintenance issues have come up, all of which have been resolved quickly. Some of the construction materials are suspect, including a faulty door latch that trapped me outside my unit temporarily, and the floors and walls are thin, which leads me to hear many of my neighbors' conversations and even their snoring at night.
response from property -Julian, Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We greatly value your feedback about the apartment homes and will let our renovations team know of your findings and issues in the apartment home. Please don't hesitate to reach out to the office by calling 973-538-5263 if you should need anything! Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager
submitted by Paul L. - |Recommended: YesGreat place with easy commute right into the heart of Morristown — This is our first apartment outside of a school one. We have gotten many compliments from family and friends about the living space and grounds in general. Not too much to complain about maintenance staff is great and very helpful so are the grounds managers. Overall very please with our experience here so far.
response from property -Paul, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words about the community. I will let the maintenance team know of your kind words as they are the ones out there daily making sure everything looks great and fixing any issues.

submitted by Julia M. - |Recommended: YesAbsolutely love living here — Just moved in last week. So far the move has been so smooth. The staff is so great and helpful.

submitted by Danielle W. - |Recommended: YesBeautiful, friendly neighborhood that truly feels like a community — So far I have absolutely loved living here I work from home full time so I often leave my windows and front door open to get fresh air and hearing the children playing, dogs barking, and neighbors chatting on walks, really makes this neighborhood feel welcoming and like a close-knit community. The dog owners are all friendly to one another and wave and say hi, even if they don't know each other, and I often see groups of people sitting around the fire pits. I've lived in luxury buildings in NYC and no one ever used their amenities, so it's very refreshing to see them being used here. A few downsides - Parking is very limited, even if you have a parking pass. - I moved into a newly renovated unit and it appeared that the renovators did a rushed job window screens that had been walked on, counter top was not cut properly so fridge did not sit far enough back into the wall, cabinets are misaligned, caulk around the bathroom is old and needs to be redone - Washing machine is VERY small - don't expect to be able to wash a comforter or duvet in it - There was an incident where I submitted an urgent maintenance request and they never showed up or responded, but there was another time when they responded right away so this first incident could have been a one-off incident - Call center staff are not very knowledgeable on policies or procedures which made move-in difficult as I couldn't get my questions answered quickly Overall the apartment is great and I am definitely starting to feel at home here
response from property -Danielle, Thank you for taking the time to write a review! I definitely can understand some of the frustrations you have experienced and please know that they do not fall on deaf ears. Parking is something I am always working on and thinking of ways we can help our residents find spaces or even open up new spaces. We do offer garages and have some available and it may help you in the long run if you aren't fond of street parking. It appears we missed the mark on your apartment home and I do take that responsibility and we will get better! I do apologize the apartment home was not up to your standards at move-in. Please know you can always reach out to us by calling 973-538-5263 if you should need anything! Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager
submitted by Sara A. - |Recommended: YesI think is great, nice place to live. — I would say I love living here mainly because of the community area, small apartment buildings surrounded by a very nice landscape.

submitted by Guruprasad N. - |Recommended: YesGreat community in Morris area — Alister is a great community to live at, for families with kids, you have play area, tennis court as well. Very near to Morristown downtown, 5 mins drive. Though the community is near to downtown, it is peaceful, quiet at nights, well maintained. Buildings are well built, you don’t hear noise from your neighbours. Parking space is little congested but you have street parking available. Overall, a good community to live at.
response from property -Guruprasad, Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are really lucky to have that nice little park next to our community and just an overall great location from the center of town! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you should need anything by calling 973-538-5263. Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager
submitted by Kasey S. - |Recommended: YesIt's not as soundproof as you think — Alister Morristown is a really nice community and great place to live. There are just some drawbacks here and there that you wouldn't think about until you actually move in. Privacy is a big factor for me because, I don't like to bother my neighbors. I'd imagine that my neighbors would feel the same as well. But, if you live with someone else and need to talk to them from a different room, I'm pretty sure your neighbors can hear you at least I can. That's not even considering if you have a fight, or just want to play music for a few people. This place isn't as soundproof as they claim it to be. I honestly, feel kind of bad whenever I put on the TV or have people over. I'm thinking about installing a noise cancelling machine and encouraging my neighbors invest in one too. Still a great place to live though.
response from property -Kasey, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I can definitely understand your concern regarding noise and we understand everybody has different levels of sensitivity to noises. It is great that you are very conscious of the noises you may make! You are the ideal resident! I will speak with the team if they claimed we have a soundproof community but to be honest, no building is soundproof and nobody would advertise as such. While our community was built decades ago, we are renovating all apartments and bringing them up to the latest building codes. Please let me know if you would like to discuss further on the phone. I can be reached by calling 973-538-5263. Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager

Please don't hesitate to reach out to us by calling 973-538-5263 if you should need anything! Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager
submitted by Barbara F. - |Recommended: YesHomey — It's a great apartment complex Dog friendly, which is a plus Awesome trail behind the complex that is easily accessible. Perfect one bedroom apartment for a couple with a dog. The amenities are great, including the grills and outdoor gathering area. My husband and I originally picked this place because of the acceptance of pets but now that we've been living here for about 2 months, I'm so glad we did. Minutes walk to the downtown area. Just all around a great place to live.
response from property -Barbara, Thank you for sure warm and glowing review! Wow, we couldn't have said it better ourselves! I am delighted to hear you and your husband are enjoying your time with us! The location really is great and nothing like working off some calories after a delicious meal in the middle of town! Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you should need anything! Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager
submitted by Kurt D. - |Recommended: YesBeautiful — its location is central to all the local businesses.
response from property -Kurt, Thank you for giving us such a great review! I would say we are in the middle of it all! Close to The Green, close the middle of town! Couldn't pick a better location and we agree! Please don't hesitate to reach out to the office by calling 973-538-5263 if you should need anything! Thank you, Tony A -Community Manager
