This is a very nice complex. As with anything that is nice, its reflected in the price. The adage "You get what you pay for" applies here (and to everything else). Units here are very fair priced. Not only are they modern, they employ granite/stainless/hardwood, and other higher end materials. The decks are covered, the light fixtures are modern, etc. Parking structures are well lit, and security patrols in the evening. The property itself is very clean, very safe. Improvements are seen constantly, from new roofs and parking covers, to a fantastic new pool area. Maintenance staff look clean, look professional, and have modern carts/equipment. I don't feel nervous, when they are in my place. Grounds themselves are neatly kept by landscape companies. These services are what the unit prices include, not just the unit itself. As with an office at any commercial entity, there are going to be peak and slow times. Even during busier parts of the day, I have always had my issues addressed in a timely manner. This is a professional office staff. Sonia is very sharp, accommodates last second or unusual requests with ease, and clearly is an expert. Ashley has always gotten back to me quickly, and has provided the info or services I have needed many times. I have lived in many different complexes, and really cannot find any legitimate issue with Forest Rim. It's very nice. The gorgeous surroundings are a plus, too!
I really enjoyed my two years living at Forest Rim Apartments. Sonia in the front office is amazing, very professional and always finds a way to help me. If I didn't work in beaverton, I would've stayed living in these apartments. Thank you to Sonia for making my two years stress free and satisfied.
Now that the state has upped the smoking fine to $250 hopefully these rental people will finally enforce clean living!!!! Sonia a rental person and others there smoked though so good luck! They smoked in the lobby and contaminated the attached exercise room. I was there 3-years and I ended up living mostly in my garage because to the toxic smoking conditions in my apartment. It was supposed to be completely smoke free by 2016, and that was in writing, but, my apartment got worse with more and more smokers moving in then. I left in January 2016 almost at the end of my lease, Sonia and her management worked on that really hard. You wouldn't believe what these folks pulled on me for their lie! She/they will say and do anything for their gain! And she said she fakes in reviews so you may already be getting her/their wrath!
The five months I spent living at Forest Rim were some of the worst 5 months of my life. I relocated to this complex after having to move out of my home during a nasty divorce. I shared this with Sonia, the office staff who was providing me my tour. I shared with Sonia that safety was paramount to me as I was a single mom with two small children to protect. Sonia assured me that Forest Rim was very safe and nothing bad ever happened there. There were two 3 bedroom apartments available at the time I was looking and Sonia strongly suggested I take the unit on the ground floor. She explained it had a much better location than the upper level unit that was also available at the time. I shared with Sonia that I preferred upper level units as I felt safer. .... and despite this I found it odd how strongly she was trying to encourage me to rent the ground floor unit. When I asked Sonia why she felt this was not a good location (as she shared with me at least 3 times) she said because it was close to the garbage area, which in my opinion was a plus as I hate lugging garbage far distances. I decided to choose the upper level apartment and remember sharing with my friends and family how strange it was that the staff of forest rim was trying to steer me away from that ideally located unit. My friends and I chalked it up to thinking that perhaps she wanted to rent the ground unit first as perhaps that one was harder to rent. A few months after I moved in I was delivered a huge blow from one of my neighbors which made it abundantly clear why Sonia was trying to steer me away from the unit that I chose . Apparently the prior tenant in my unit shot himself in my apartment and as a result the apartment had sat vacant for 6 months before I moved in. It now all made sense. I immediately called the police station to inquire and was told that was in fact true. I struggled with this horrible fact.....while trying to convince myself it was ok to stay there......but I just couldn't. I put in my notice 2 months in advance and left just 5 months after moving in. After I moved out I realized that I should never have been put in that situation. I asked about the apartment from the very beginning. I asked about crime. I asked about safety. Nothing was ever disclosed...and obviously had I known I would never have moved there. Due to the fact that I gave 2 months notice forest rim was able to rent my apartment to another tenant just 10 days after I vacated. Despite this they sent me a bill for $2500 which included a fee of 1.5x one months rent, a $60 carpet cleaning fee, a $375 painting fee and a $160 cleaning fee. I was only there 5 months and left the apartment spotless. All but the carpet cleaning fees were robbery in my opinion. I tried to reason with them. I tried to explain that I just couldn't stay there with my children knowing the apartment's violent history. The apartment manager (Ashley) seemed somewhat empathetic to the situation. Unfortunately she reports to a soulless ego driven propery manager, joshua johnson, who is greedy, on a power trip and has no heart. Joshua didn't care about any of it. He stated that he didn't have to disclose the apartment's history and that he was making zero concessions.This then turned into a legal battle. They hired an attorney to fight my attorney and in the end....the little guy lost....and in this case, the little guy is me. I share this with you to give you a glimpse of who you will be dealing with at that complex.....a group of individuals who are ruled by a man who lacks integrity and is only driven by cash. I can only imagine that Josh's bonuses must be heavily weighted by how many add on fees he can squeeze out of departing Forest Rim victims.
LOVE this place. I have lived here for almost a year and everyone has been very helpful. Maintenance is awesome. My neighbors are great as well and my dog loves the patio. Having a washer and dryer in the unit is lovely.
