Good and well done.submitted by Kevin O. - |Recommended: YesThis apartment complex is not bad. It has amazing staff and a welcoming community. During my stay it was quiet and relaxing. When i was going to move, some things happen in my new apartment and they personally resolved the issues. I do appreciate the people at magnolia.
Serenity in Magnoliasubmitted by Katherine (. - |Recommended: YesI have really enjoyed living here for the past two years. For the most part, it has been quiet and peaceful. The office team is always cheerful and helpful. The maintenance team has responded to most of my requests in a very timely fashion and has always been very professional and courteous. My chief complaint is the fact the laundry vent empties into the garage right in my spot and I was never able to park my car in there. I've had to cover my bikes and other storage boxes too. It is old construction, so I am not sure what can be done about that. In the big scheme of things, it was merely an inconvenience, but not a show stopper. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my decision to live at Overlook at Magnolia rented sight unseen .
The supervisor doesn't care about my complainsubmitted by Zhijiang N. - |Recommended: NoI have moved into this community 3 months ago. I can hear big noise from upstairs due to the old wooden floor. When the upstairs' people were walking, the building will shaking and there were big wooden cracking noise coming from the up floor. The up floor's people will generally wake up at 6 AM and keeping walking around, which will cause big and continuous cracking wooden noise. And this behavior will generally last for 2 hours. How can I sleep under this bad condition I have complained this issue since I moved in. The staff has reported the issue to the supervisor. They said they can moved me the top floor 5th , but I need to pay additional fee almost 250 more per month , which will cost me more than 1800 per month, which is beyond my budget. This is the fault of the community without letting me the cracking noise from upstarts before I moved in. How would I need to pay for it
Great place, not so great neighborssubmitted by Rebecka P. - |Recommended: YesI love the location and all of the staff here. However some of the residents are selfish, loud, and rude. As an example, one lady will take up every single washing machine at once and tell anyone who wants to do theirs that they have to wait until hers are all done, several hours from now before she has even put her clothes in the washer to begin with . If my neighbors had more common courtesy and respect for others, this place would be ideal.

Meh.submitted by Bryan L. - |Recommended: NoIts your standard apartment.
Great location, quiet clean. Responsive management and maintainance, Friendlysubmitted by Mel M. - |Recommended: YesThe Overlook is a complex nested on the east side Magnolia near the top of the ridge. The square footage of our unit is comparable to small one bedroom houses in Ballard with an amazing view north to Ballard all the way to Mt Rainier. Street parking is not easy and a parking stall is a near must. The grounds are well kept and the management listens to presented issues and responds relatively quickly depending what needs to be done. Rent increases of 5 can be expected if you do sign a lease renewal and if you don't, one can expect more. As a long term rental, I would suggest being less aggressive rent increases to promote an established residency which builds community and increases overall safety in terms of familiarity and consistency.
We Love It submitted by Sarah L. - |Recommended: YesWe lived in the Overlook for 5 years and only moved because of a job out of state. The people working in the office and the maintenance staff are all really great people. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors friendly. We will miss living here
Beautiful Apartments Outstanding Customer Service submitted by Stephanie M. - |Recommended: YesMy entire experience with Overlook at Magnolia has been outstanding from the initial showing of the apartment to move in the staff at Overlook is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. My apartment is beautiful, spacious, has gorgeous views, is well kept and I don't hear my neighbors at all. I moved from a 5 bedroom house in the Midwest, I was nervous about moving to an apartment I am very happy with my decision to move to Overlook. I moved to Seattle by myself and I travel a lot for work so having the staff at Overlook to help with deliveries, technicians etc has been incredibly helpful. All of the staff at Overlook is AWESOME , they treat you like family. I would highly recommend Overlook at Magnolia.
Overall Experiencesubmitted by Parveen R. - |Recommended: NoStaff working in the leasing office is very supportive and cooperative. Maintenance is poor. Slow response. Old equipment's in the kitchen. Which make noise. Gym is not maintained. Treadmill button are scratched and disappeared from more than a year but no one thought to fix them. Gym roof is leaking from more than 6 months and a bucket is placed to collect the water. No one thought to fix the roof. Washer and dryers are always dirty with pet hairs. Main entrance lock was not working properly and it took more than a year to get replaced. People keys were blamed which worked fine on door but not on another door.
It'll Do aka good short term spot submitted by Taelin L. - |Recommended: YesPros recently new staff is super accommodating and competent before, I've had nice but incompetent service , there is a gym and sauna, office collect packages for you, every place has a patio, every patio level 2 and up has an amazing view, big living room space, laundry units, dog poo bag dispenser outside, good outside upkeep, compost and recycle available. Cons Removed hot tub and replaced it with a concrete patio, gym is small, bathrooms easily get moldy, you can hear the upstairs people easily walking making love music showers draws opening , elevators are almost too small to move in furniture, kitchens need updates, on the top of a giant hill taking bus -- walking sucks , not enough outside bins for compost and recycling.

Live heresubmitted by Garret S. - |Recommended: YesOverall a good place to live. The office staff is wonderful, The views are lovely, the apartment is nothing spectacular, but it was clean and pretty spacious for the price. You are also in the middle of everything, and can hop to downtown in 10 minutes, Ballard in 5 and you live near Discovery park which is wonderful
