Looking over the reviews left for the Timbers it seems a while back it wasn't as good. But the Timbers have VERY nice and VERY helpful staff management. Their maintenance has been amazing and very helpful! The grounds are mostly clean (other than residents not picking up after themselves). With my being in an apartment bottom floor for the first time, the noise level up above me bothers me. But it only happens every now and then. So its not that bad. Other than that I really like where I am at. They have a pool, fitness center, laundry center, good community grounds, tennis court, playgrounds and grilling stations. I definitely recommend this complex due to the location good in between Durham and Raleigh and not downtown but only 15-20minutes from downtown Raleigh.
After graduating from college and having previously lived in Southeast Raleigh for my undergraduate experience I was seeking something different for my transition into adult life. First time apartment hunting is daunting, and after a long day in the heat, my father who accompanied me from out of town, suggested we stop by The Timber's as he had looked them up online. As soon as I drove up the hill, and toured the apartment complex I was sold. The leasing office was helpful, answered my fathers questions and were willing to show us how they stacked up to the area competition. I have had a great leasing experience with the Timbers. The staff are consistently professional, courteous, and knowledgeable about the community and surrounding area. Although my college years were lived in a dorm room, being from a military family I have inhabited my fair share of properties, and The Timbers is well maintained. In a year of living in my apartment I have only had to request maintenance twice for minor issues and my requests were responded to within 24 hours. The neighborhood contains a mix of different ethnic groups , and people from various socioeconomic backgrounds, but there is an easy cohesion. The neighborhood is mostly quiet at night with the exception of a few dog walkers!, and parking is easily accessible within 2-3 feet of your apartment no matter the time of day or night. In fact, when it was time to review my lease renewal options my Father & Mother both wanted me to stay, but due to extenuating circumstances, it was not feasible for me to do so at this present time. People often ask about the price of utilities. My average water bill was $14.00 - $20.00, my average light bill during summer months with moderate use of air-conditioning was $25.00 to $40.00, during the winter with moderate use of heating I paid no higher than $80.00. If you are new to the Raleigh area, or just want to experience North Raleigh, I suggest you give The Timbers a fair chance!
I used to live at the timbers and the apartments were not kept well by their office. Since then I have had people accidentally mail me things there but no one was ever in the office to answer my calls.
