My family and I move from California to Arizona in August and we didn't have a chance to come and look at the apartments before moving in. We had to take our relative words that it was a family-dog-friendly place. Our family really like it here and it has great amenities. It is also located near lots of stores and schools which we really appreciate. The staffs are really nice and the maintenance are quick to come and fix things. We had to communicate through emails and they are quick to respond to all of our concerns and questions. Despite our initial worry about our move, the apartment is really nice and comfortable to live in.
After a lot of research on the apartments available in Deer Valley, my spreadsheets pointed me to RidgeGate. Close to work, washer/dryer in each unit, gated community, good reviews, and affordable rent for the quality of the apartment and community. I was moving from out of state to Phoenix for a job and had to do most of the leasing arrangements over email. Throughout the whole process, the staff was very friendly and happy to work with me and moving in was a very smooth process. The community itself is pretty quiet and well maintained. Doggie bags are available for dog owners around the area and I see maintenance actively working around the community. Whenever I have had a problem with repairs, it's very easy to let the staff know about my problem (either in person or through an online submission form) and I don't really have to wait more than a couple days for them to address a non-emergency issue. When I first moved in, I was informed that during the day, a privately contracted company patrols the area as security. Since I work during the day, I've never personally seen them but I was given their contact information in case I needed them for things like being locked-out or to tow someone out of my assigned covered parking space, so I'm going to trust that they patrol around. The community takes pest control very seriously and has pest control come by regularly to spray. Outside the odd fly here and there and a single tiny lizard, I've never seen any worrying pests. Mail is in a mass unit just outside the gate and packages are kept in the front office to be picked up with a package notification in your mailbox. Location-wise, it is nearby to a shopping center with Target and an AMC theatre, although that is the closest thing to a grocery store for about ten minutes. However, (un?)fortunately, there are quite a few fast food/drive thru places in the surrounding area, so easy and lazy access to food isn't a problem. Across the street from the community is a motorcycle mechanic academy, however I haven't found any noise issues. Behind the complex is a high school, and when school is in session, you can hear the evening games and band play while you're outside. I've only been in my apartment, so I am not sure how it is with others. My 1br has hardwood flooring and carpet in the bedroom. I live on the bottom floor and noise-wise, the sound from the apartment above is not very intrusive. I can hear some footsteps, washer/dryer, and the occasional loud television or alarm clock, but it's hardly a problem and pretty normal. I never hear any sound from the other units my apartment shares a wall with. I've only lived here for a few months, but I intend to renew my lease here. The residents I have come across are friendly, and the staff has never been anything less than delightful. I felt like my research paid off well when I settled in RidgeGate and am very pleased to be living here!
very friendly staff, super easy and very nice apartments! we went in today and liked what we saw and got everything done and signed our lease super fast. Ali, which i was informed is new to the apartment staff was SUPER friendly and very fast. she definently cares about her tendants. excited to live here.
RideGate is a wonderful apartment complex to live at, the apartments are clean and well maintained, if something does need fixed the maintenance team is very prompt, friendly and will get the job done. The office staff is always accommodating and friendly and there is a CARES team who puts on multiple free community events every month! We quickly got to know our neighbors and make friends, and although at times it can be loud, it is an apartment complex and that's to be expected. It's placed in a wonderful location close to shopping centers and has very easy and quick access to I-17 and the 101 but is far enough away to not have all the traffic, overall, we loved living here and I'd definitely recommend it in a heartbeat!
I love living here. There is a really nice gym on the premises, a state-of-the-art poolside grilling area, and easy access to the I-17. Community is quiet, in a nice location. Any matters are quickly resolved by staff and maintenance. Very glad I chose Ridge Gate. Sandi D.
