Resident Reviews

Too expensive but over all great place to live.submitted by Kaleb P. - |Recommended: YesIf you are patient you can find a much better place for the money. Great location though. They go up too high per year on rent. It is higher than my yearly raise. I am going to have to move this year because of it. Too expensive for it being a building from the 70's. No lights anywhere. Light switches are attached to wall power outlets at odd places. For instance when I go inside my entrance, there is a light switch. It attaches to one outlet. That outlet is right next to the door, so you couldn't put a light there. It attaches to no other outlets. Current management is quick to respond to fixes, everyone that works here is nice. Current management as of April 2018 is great. Previous management company was horrible. I currently have a slight problem with people flicking cigarette butts near my door and smoking beside my door on the stairwell, but that is because people are idiots and not the fault of the complex. Over all, for the area, this place is great, if you need to move in now, move here. If you can wait, find a better place that is cheaper or same price. A note about the Noise rating. The way it reads is, Rate higher stars if you can hear your neighbors I put it at 1 because my neighbor is silent. In this case, a 1 is a good rating to me. They need to change the wording of the Noise rating.
response from property -Thank you for taking the time to rate and leave us an honest review. I have the same lamp switches in my home here, so I can agree the living room outlet is at the front door, but I have an addition light switch on the other side of the room that also works that same lamp. If would like I can see about getting maintenance over to see if they would be able to change that outlet to another that would work with your switch that would may prefer more? Please let me know in the office and we can see what we can do. Know we do hate to see our neighbors leave due to rate increases and we have been keeping our neighbors in mind with renewals, which is why we use Rent Optimizing System, it actually suggest the renewal rates for us, and it has been very kind to our current neighbors since we starting using it. This takes it away from the human ability of going in a making 30 - 40% increases just because of new ownership or management. We have already had so many upgrades to the common area including the breezeways, the pool (all new pool furniture coming this month), the new and improved fitness center, and more to come, all for our neighbors to have a better quality of living at 700 Riverchase, while not having to increase their rents those 30 - 40% increases. I hope when your renewal comes up and you see the offers you have to choose from, you are happy with them and we earn our right to keep you as one of our neighbors. Also, I will see what we can do about the wording for the noise question, so thank you for bringing it to our attention and also clarifying your actual 1 star rating. Stay tuned and you may be very happy with your renewal this year. 700 Riverchase Thank You!
Love living here submitted by Bobbie O. - |Recommended: YesThis is the third complex I've lived in since I've been in Birmingham and it is by far the best one. I absolutely love living here and I'm so sad to be moving for work. I know it'll be difficult to find a place that measures up. It's the little things here. For example, Mario with maintenance, always remembers I work night shift so when he has to come in for repairs, he's very mindful of that. When the trees bloom in the spring, the grounds are so beautiful. Many many more great features. Truly a great place to live. Would recommend to family and friends.
response from property -Thank you so much for the rating and review. We are going to miss you calling 700 Riverchase home! Mario is a maintenance supervisor who truly respects the neighbors here, and I will make sure he sees your comments about him. You are absolutely correction about the trees blooming as they are now, it is beautiful. If you are ever back this way, we would love to have you come back as one of our neighbors!! Again, thank you for the Rating and Review and you will be missed!!

Worst place I've ever livedsubmitted by Ralph C. - |Recommended: NoI'm glad my lease is up and I'm moving I would not recommend this place to anyone and I won't after being through many management companies and different owners and being showed an apartment that was top of the line prior to moving in and then seeing what I got was the worst thing ever my apartment I got was a dump at a very expensive price maintenance the worst things that were wrong with the apartment are still wrong and never fixed but you still keep raising the rent sorry to say I'm glad to be moving out. If you really want to attract tennents instead of making the outside look pretty try making the inside look state of the art
response from property -Thank you for the review. Your apartment turned out very nice as one of our newest renovated apartment homes here! You were right, making the insides state of the art was just what the community needed. Along with the new fitness center, pool, gas grills, pool furniture, and now a new Pickle Ball Court and Giant Chess Set. Thank you for all your suggestions in your review, they really did make a difference.
For the price, decentsubmitted by Sarah C. - |Recommended: NoMaintenance requests take entirely too long to complete. Also, I am not convinced that my requests were actually taken care of. I requested pest control and I am still having a problem with bugs. Also, the breezeways are starting to look like a haunted house, there are so many spiders and bugs roaming around. I know I live in a Terrace level, and a certain amount of bugs is to be expected, but I didn't realize I would need to maintain that area as well. The garbage compactor frequently looks like a dump. More consistent regulation of trash dumping would be nice. It just looks bad. The staff have always been super helpful, I am just not sure I will be renewing in the spring when my lease comes up.
response from property -Thank you for the rating and comments. I will look into the maintenance request you are referring to that have been taking too long to be repaired and see what can be done about that. Now, our pest control does come every Friday, so if you would like I will put you done for tomorrow for the inside your apartment. As far as the breezeway go, this is the season for spiders, and as quick as we spray them down, they come right back up. Spiders are one bug you have to kill on contact in order to keep it from coming back, and with all the wooded landscaping we have in our neighborhood, that would be very hard to do on a daily basis. Now, I have had our landscapers spray around your building with weed killer and pest control has sprayed around your building last week as well. I will keep an eye on the compactor area, as I do see it daily coming to and from work daily. There are times when furniture does get sat behind the compactor area during heavy move out times, and when those time do happen, we schedule for large item pick ups. We would love to see you observe the changes before your renewal time, and we want the chance to earn your renewal when the time comes up this spring. If you need anything in the meantime, please just let us know if the office, and we will be more that happy to assist in any way possible. Thank you again, Bobby Starnes, CAM Business Manager 700 Riverchase

Review 7-29submitted by Peter L. - |Recommended: YesLove living hear. Bobby and maintenance are great.
response from property -Thank you for the rating and review Peter. I have only been here a short time, but I am looking forward to being here for a very long time. 700 Riverchase has some of the most wonderful neighbors. I can say out of all the communities I have been a part of in the past, 700 Riverchase really takes being a Neighborhood and being Neighbors to a new level in Multifamily Housing. Im not just saying that because of the review and rating you have left, but because it was a pleasure meeting you yesterday and you letting me know what issue you were having with the online services we provided and helped me get it resolved. So, thank you again, and I look forward to being here for you and all the neighbors here and for them being here to let me know when there is something wrong that I may need assistance on as well. That's what makes a true neighborhood. Bobby Starnes, CAM Business Manager 700 Riverchase
