Hi, Loading...

Apr 2019: Isvela is awesome!! She cares deeply about her residents' experiences and hosts events to get people in the apartment complex engaged and connected with one another. Though I did experience maintenance troubles at times, every maintenance issue I had was addressed and fixed immediately. She works hard to ensure the property is well kept, well-priced, and a friendly environment. Review from Google
Jan 2019: I'm 2 months into my 8 month lease and I have enjoyed it so far. Isvela is a pleasure to speak and work with. Emergency maintenance staff are wonderful. My heat went out during the snow in December and I called once to have it fixed and also was left with a space heater in case of another issue. Even though it went out again the next day first thing that morning the problem was fully fixed. It's quiet besides the floors bc my upstairs neighbor is so heavy footed. Convenient location and reasonable price with in unit washer/dryer. I would recommend to anyone. Review from Google
Dec 2018: Ridgewood is a good place to live. It's in a convenient location and the manager and maintenance staffs are always attentive. Review from Google
Dec 2018: Ridge wood is an excellent place to live at ! It’s a peaceful place . Maintenance is perfect they come when you need help there is no need to do more then one call . The office manager and assistant are very polite and helpful ! Review from Google
Oct 2018: Nicely renovated, very kind, professional and prompt staff, reasonable rent for amenities and area. Review from Google
Sep 2018: a guy followed my girlfriend from her car to the door and only ran off when I came out. multiple times people were hanging out outside and sitting on my car. large, noisy families packed into 2 bedroom apartments. bus stop is loaded with people in the morning, most of whom will try to panhandle from you if you walk by. staff is poor, in my experience it took days for maintenance and the lady at the office was incredibly condescending on more than one occasion. wound up breaking my lease after someone broke into my car. avoid. Review from Google
Sep 2018: I still enjoy living here...manager, maintenance and other staff make it great but my rent keeps creeping up; $815 this year, although my square footage hasn't changed, so this is most likely my last year living here. Anyone know of affordable places around Pittsboro or Apex? Review from Google
Mar 2018: One of the better managed properties and staff in the area. very helpful staff in a mixed student and long term resident community. Be careful of the rent terms advertised. Rent went up 8% and had to move elsewhere in 2018. It hard to save a dime to pay for school when rates jumped like that. Review from Google

Dec 2017: Roaches, spiders, rent is too high for a small one bedroom. Upstairs neighbors smoke weed and are obnoxiously loud. When you call the office to ask important questions they never know anything. Review from Google
Oct 2017: Reasonable price. Apartment is 1B1B only. It was recently renovated so the space was pretty new (I wish we have a microwave in the kitchen like Kingswood). I haven’t had problems with roaches/bugs at all (we take out trash daily and tidy up our place regularly). The staff is helpful and very welcoming, especially our leasing agent, Tiên Le. She is attentive, quick to solve any of our concerns and would go extra mile to make sure our place is well maintained. Most of our requests were solved quickly. My only complain is that they schedule the mowing lawn service so early in the morning, it’s so loud and annoying. It gives me headache. The location is convenient, with buses to UNC/ Carborro area, grocery and drug stores around the corner. Overall good place to live. Review from Google
Oct 2017: The apartment is good, especially the price and leasing office. The price is about 700$/month, which is cheap for a 1b1b apartment near UNC. Tien is very nice. She gave me some living goods when I first came here and assisted me in many aspects. It's really a good choice if you want a 1b1b apartment. Review from Google
Oct 2017: Im glad i showed up for the breakfast-on-the-go event; it was a good wake up call. They should have more events like this in the future. It's a great way for me to meet my neighbors and associate more with the staffs. The location of the apartment complex is convenient for me, especially the bus line; and it's quiet here. I would recommend Ridgewood Apartments to anybody! Review from Google
Oct 2017: One of the better managed properties and staff in the area. very helpful staff in a mixed student long term resident community. Rarely give out 5 stars but this crew earns it! Review from Google
Aug 2017: I only stayed there for a few months, but it was a good experience. I worked with Tien in the front office, and she was incredibly professional and kind. The apartments are fairly small, but the location is great. The bus stop that heads into downtown Carrboro and Chapel Hill is right across the street. A Food Lion is a few minutes walk. Overall a very convenient spot. Review from Google
Jun 2017: Convenient location, unbeatable price, awesome leasing office staff. The property is well maintained and the renovated units have great appliances. Whenever I've had any maintenance issues (nothing major), they've been prompt to respond. Isvela and Tien are always super friendly and helpful- I look forward to seeing them whenever I get a package in the mail! Some reviews mention crime in the area but, as a single female who lived alone, I never felt unsafe. I always lock my doors but I would do that anywhere. This is a college town and some crime is inevitable. Review from 6/8/17 on Google
Jun 2017: I have absolutely loved living at Ridgewood! From the moment I walked into my new apartment, I felt at home. Isvela and Tien are the best management team I have ever met! The two of them truly care about you. I've had one VERY minor maintenance issue (my utility closet door came off the track and the track was bent & had to be fixed). The maintenance worker was very sweet and even was friendly to my cat. As for some of the concerns others post about, I have witnessed 3 bugs in the 7 months that I have lived at Ridgewood. Some buildings seem to have different issues. Review from 6/3/17 on Google
May 2017: One word: ROACHES. We had to put any and all food in the fridge. Even the flour would have roaches in it. In the morning when I would wake up and turn on the lights, swarms of roaches would scurry away. Pest control didn't help at all. I talked with neighbors and they were having the same experience. Please beware that these people are advertising themselves as LUXURY apartments on craigslist right now. WHAT???? Nastiest apartment I've ever lived in. Review from 5/25/17 on Google
Apr 2017: The complex management staff are awesome. Isvela and Tien are super friendly and helpful, and really work hard to make the place feel like a community. The location is great, all of my neighbors have been friendly and kind, and I've always felt safe here. Review from 4/26/17 on Google
Jan 2017: Property Management Staff are the best of all those at all apartments at which I've stayed. This is because XXXX and XXXX are quickly responsive to every apartment issue I've had. Twice, they helped me to change units between lease renewals. At no time have I ever been charged for phoney charges. Plus, plus, they arranged for us residents a very nice Holiday dinner of ribs, salmon, mashed potatoes, broccoli, and cake. Review from 1/2/17 on Apartment Ratings
Aug 2016: This apartment complex is inexpensive and fairly basic. However, what makes Ridgewood a good place to live is the property manager, XXXX. She's absolutely the best. She is very responsive and takes care of any issues you may have immediately. We ended up moving to another bigger place and we definitely already miss how attentive XXXX was. Again, it's a pretty average apartment complex in terms of the actual apartment itself, but it is inexpensive and XXXX will make sure to take care of you. Review from 8/22/16 on Apartment Ratings
Jul 2016: I have regreted renting this pool since I've moved in. The office manager makes sure to show a very nice, clean model apartment without showing you the actual apartment you'll be living in. When I opened my door for the first time, the walls and carpets were not clean, there was a bug bomb in the middle of the floor and roaches still running around. My washer/dryer was not new (as advertised) and were not even working when I moved in. It took almost a month to fix. My first week, I had a leak in the bathroom. The maintenance guy denied that there was a leak and didn't come back to fix it until the entire bathroom was flooded with dirty water. Review from 7/11/16 on Apartment Ratings
May 2016: I have lived at Ridgewood for two years and the property manager is one of the best. If I have an issue with my apartment she takes care of the problem immediately. She is always friendly and kind. Very quiet and peaceful here at Ridgewood. Review from 5/13/16 on Apartment Ratings
May 2016: This is a long review, but please read it because it has a lot of very good information. The complex of Ridgewood apartments is one of the most awful I have ever been to. The main thing to keep in mind about all these complexes is that each customer to them is only an ATM, from which they only want to get as much money as possible. However, in the case of Ridgewood this is so true, that it gets almost disgusting. They charge well over $700 a month for an apartment that is worth much less than that. The reasons are several. First of all most of the buildings in the complex are infested with swarms of roaches. Review from 5/12/16 on Apartment Ratings
Mar 2016: To all my fellow renters, I have to say Ridgewood apartment is a cool place to rent however, you may see a few cackroches, but can remove if apartment keep clean and treat. Rent is affordable, area is safe consider I leave alone. Convenient location grocery store and gas station are close by. Work orders are usually done fast and properly when requested. people who works at the office XXXX and XXXX are welcoming, loving and concerns about my welfare and I appreciate that a lot. Another thing I like I don't hear noise when I am inside the apartment. Overall, I would recommend Ridgewood apartment to anyone who needs a place to stay. Review from 3/14/16 on Apartment Ratings
Sep 2015: I moved in during summer 2015, and so far I am very happy at Ridgewood apartments. ____ is the on-site property manager, and she is very sweet, very helpful and very competent. Any issues that we had during our move-in were dealt with promptly and politely by her and the maintenance staff. When deciding where to live, I read reviews such as the ones on this website, and found them helpful. After reading some of the other comments, I was a bit nervous of bugs and cockroaches in Ridgewood, but I haven't found it to be a problem. I have seen a very small number of bugs, and since moving in, the facility carried out a treatment of all of the apartment units. Review from 9/2/15 on Apartment Ratings
