Fantastic place to live I'd recommend to anyone submitted by Angela V. - |Recommended: YesStaff are responsive and helpful and maintenance is done more quickly than I have ever experienced. Most of the neighbors are friendly and obliging and once you shut your door you truly don't hear anything. Overlook is conveniently located to two bus routes and it is easy to get to ballard, freemont, and belltown I love living here

Good value for price and location submitted by Kailey G. - |Recommended: YesProperty is kept nice looking and is pet friendly with a couple locations spread out over the grounds that have poop bags and trashcans. Parking can be kind of spotty depending on the day and the time, its nice to have a designated parking spot but the price for the spot is a little expensive. The complex itself is pretty well maintained but definitely older and has its issues. The units are big which is nice but definitely outdated. Noise between units is pretty minimal but noise in the complex can get a little loud if you have your windows open and we've had some issues with smelling cigarette smoke when people are smoking on their balconies and it comes in through open windows and doors.

Well maintained apartments, with great staff, views and pet communitysubmitted by Travis B. - |Recommended: YesI like living here. It's an older but well-maintained complex, and that is part of its era appeal apartment layouts are similar, but each has something different. I love the views, and it also has a great community of pet owners and their animals.
Great property and locationsubmitted by Connie M. - |Recommended: YesProperty is maintained impeccably. Front desk staff are always available and follow through with requests. Excellent property and community, though one request regarding guidelines honoring the quiet times 10pm -8am, thinking it may be a good idea for staff to send out email reminders on a monthly basis. Building is solid, so seems that tenants may think they cannot be heard while working on home projects late in to the eve. and a.m. and don't realize they can indeed be heard by those trying to sleep during those hours. Otherwise awesome neighbors and great location too.
We love living here submitted by Mandalin T. - |Recommended: YesI would let them know this is a wonderful apartment complex with friendly staff, well designed layouts but parking is terrible. Unless you can afford a parking spot garage its a fight for parking situation on the street.
Excellentsubmitted by Adiya B. - |Recommended: NoJust Awesome place to live
Loving the Overlook Magnolia Apartmentssubmitted by Kathryn O. - |Recommended: YesI moved in 3 months ago and I'm Loving it I moved from my last apartment because of issues with thin walls, parking, lack of upkeep with the grounds and apartments etc, so my expectations were just a new place that is better than the last. I've found that my expectations have been blown away. The staff is Great The walls actually block noise. I hardly hear any neighbors. The neighbors are friendly and very dog friendly and the apartments, grounds and office are all kept up very nicely. I could not be happier and plan to stay for a long time.
Slightly Above Averagesubmitted by Joshua W. - |Recommended: YesOverall, Weidner does a great job of upkeep. A lightbulb went out in the hallway, and it was fixed the next day. The facilities are all pretty nice, including the gym area. My only complaint is that the grounds keep getting messed up by dogs, but this isn't necessarily Weidner's fault. When the bark was first laid though, the groundskeepers didn't even bother to sweep the excess bark off the sidewalk back into the grounds. That was pretty unprofessional. Again, not necessarily Weidner's fault, but one recommendation is Weidner sets higher expectations for the groundskeepers. I would recommend Weidner
All the thingssubmitted by Nicholas H. - |Recommended: YesNice big apartment However...could use some upgrades. First off J building door on 26th needs a new lock. How has this not happened..its trial and error to get in. My kitchen is weak. When I wipe off a cupboard my rag is white cause it's cheap paint on everything that chips off and my oven hood sounds like a helicopter. Knobs on bathroom sink dont even match. Floors good except a couple spots where I'm sure the truss is loose. All in all I love living here, but you asked...
LOVEsubmitted by Jzona A. - |Recommended: YesThe Overlook team is AMAZING and very professional but make us feel welcomed and like family. The grounds are very well kept. Street parking is eh, but nit a big deal. 10 10 would recommend.

A wonderful community in the citysubmitted by Terri I. - |Recommended: YesThe community here at Overlook is so nice. The staff is super friendly and cheerful. It's a rarity to feel this comfortable in an apartment community, especially in the heart of the city.
