Resident Reviews

Has been a good home for us.submitted by James D. - |Recommended: YesMostly all good but do not like all the dog droppings you see when walking on the sidewalks. Something should be done to keep the grass cleaner.
Nice community, homes need TLCsubmitted by Stephenie G. - |Recommended: YesVery nice place when it comes to community, great staff, and maintenance people. Apartment size and layout are great, but MUCH updating needed interior exterior. Example Cabinet drawer tracks worn out, cabinet surfaces peeling. Carpeting would be better replaced with a sturdy laminate flooring throughout with all this rain
response from property -Hi Stephenie, Thank you for your feedback and giving us the opportunity to improve. I will be sure the office gets a copy of your review. Take care, Wendee - Customer Service

It's OKsubmitted by Mashawnda G. - |Recommended: NoThe location is great and one of the best maintenance and staff professional I have ever dealt with, always professional and quick to respond to my request. I love the size of the unit except for the bathroom being on the small side and no room to place your towels, and bathroom is outdated, having a medicine cabinet and mirror that is old and worn out. The kitchen and dining area is a good size, love having the laundry off the kitchen. The cabinet are outdated and does not close fully, but plenty of cabinet space. The size of the bedroom and closet is great, enjoy having plenty of room to move around. The walkways and common area between apartments, the carpets stays filthy, on a weekly basis I take a broom and sweep my area. The apartment has downgraded since I moved in over a year ago.
I nice place to call home.submitted by Cassandra C. - |Recommended: YesI was worried having living in a new Townhouse previously, and 2 Single Family Residences before that. The apartment is very quite, insulated and comfortable.

It's oksubmitted by Jared S. - |Recommended: YesHaven't had many problems, place is clean and the grounds upkeep is great. But when first moving in, the closet doors didn't move properly. Then when I asked to have them fix, they said they had to switch the original doors but wouldn't switch them nor fix them after they got stuck. Can hear the neighbors easily. And they have only now started fixing the parking issue of junker cars sitting in visitor spots
Great place to live submitted by Tanisha A. - |Recommended: NoEverything is great except for the mold that is hard to rid of windows, doors, blinds etc . The heaters make really loud noises so its such an inconvenience to turn them on

Its oksubmitted by Tyrone F. - |Recommended: Nothe rent prices here are crazxy we dont live in seattle but we are being charged for. i talked to other communties for appartments and they dont go by seattle's pricing. thier is no way im paying for a small 1bd over 1000.00 that is insane. i can get a 2bd at another place with pool and hot tub inside and out side. my husband and i will be moving next year becuase of the rent increase. we used to pay 550 when we first came here 3 years ago. now were paying 880. and i know they will trying to add another 100.00 for a new lease, well im not letting that happen.

We would NOT recommend this Apartment complex to anyonesubmitted by Twila M. - |Recommended: NoNothing...The office and staffing...Just don t care about anything....They are old and need to be tore down and build new ones...They tell you that...You can see the lake from your apt..NOT!!!!! They gave us the one that you could see the woods...Plus...We put down a 100.00 to hold a newer apt...Britt sold it the next day...We had the hold for 3 days...They also tell you....Why yes....You can plant anything you want...Just request it and We will forward that to Landscaping...They tell you EVERYTHING you want to hear to get you in there...Then once you are caught and reeled in...Nothing happens......So our suggestion is to...Run and don t look back!!!!!!!

Good, could be better as far as noise level of neighborssubmitted by Sylvia G. - |Recommended: Yesi love the layout of the apartment and like the dryer and washer in the unit. Parking is not the best and assigned space could be closer to your actual apartment instead of being so far. I like the amendities that is offered. I wish the cabinets and peep hole on the entry door were more lower because i am short.
Good place to call home submitted by Mercedes J. - |Recommended: YesI like living at the ridge its close to alot of the schools,shopping center, stores, but they should have a better play area for the kids to play at so they dont in the parking lot, and new basketball hoops for the older kids. Overall these apartments are a good place to live in.
response from property -Hi Mercedes, this is Wendee from Customer Service. Thanks so much for the feedback, we appreciate hearing from our residents! Thank you again, Wendee
