Awesome place to live

We loved living at River Oaks. It was a large apartment with plenty of storage space. The green space around the apartment was definitely our favorite part of living there as we have 1 dog. The staff and neighbors were always friendly. We would have loved to re-sign or lease if we were staying in the area.

Handy Helpers

Just wanted to write a thank you note to all the staff here at River Oaks. The entire staff is very good here, but the maintenance group is excellent. Of the many work orders I have submitted, I have never had a complaint. The last work order was for our water heater which quit-the staff was very efficient and had it up and running within hours even after they had to get parts-then came back very quickly and made an adjustment at my request. The outdoor crew does a great job throughout the winter as well. Thank you all for making our stay very pleasant....

Maintenance Work Order - Todd

Recently, our garbage disposal wasn't working so I put in a work request and also requested that I be called before they arrived so I could go home to remove my barking dog from the apartment. Not only did I receive that phone call from Todd before he arrived but he was kind, flexible with my arrival, went the extra mile with our work order explaining what he did and how to help prevent it, he even met the FedEx delivery driver for an important package that was being delivered to our place while I would out walking our dog. I have complete confidence in the team at River Oaks and if work orders are sent in the future, I hope that Todd will be the one to respond. Thank you so much!

Just wanted to thank Todd Bishop for the fast and efficient repair of hot water heater! I placed the request in the morning and everything was working great when I arrived home from work. Best (and hottest) shower I've had in months. Thank you!!!

Great Apartments

We have been living here for now 5 months and this was the best decision. The staff has been amazing, i feel that me and family are safe in this community. I love the amenities they have. Only thing is that i wish they had a playground for kids =) The apartments are located in a really nice area. Overall very happy to be living here and to call this home.

Maintenance

I have lived in River Oaks for 2 years and enjoy it a lot. Maintenance does an amazing job of keeping the place up. You never have to worry about snow not being cleaned on the streets and sidewalks.

Enjoyable place to be!

I really enjoyed my time spent in my apartment. The maintenance guys are the best. Super friendly, fast, and funny. The office staff are great and helpful as well! I really don’t have a bad things to say. It’s an apartment complex so expect a little noise, a little outdated appliances, and don’t put holes in the walls. Follow the rules and you will have no problems! The dog park was a great perk, pool was always clean, people were friendly, I felt safe. Move in and move out when smooth! I will miss this community!

Home away from home

The best. Hands down. Staff is friendly, accommodating, and they will do whatever they can to help. Maintenance -- amazing. (I called one night at 1am -- they showed up immediately). The units are beautiful, functional, comfortable. This has been my "home away from home" for almost a year. I travel alot and work alot. And although I have the opportunity to move downtown GR, I decided to stay. I just love it here. You will too :)

I want to thank the maintenance staff and Todd for helping me with my latest maintenance request. Sine I've moved in I have not had to wait more than 24 hours on my maint. request. That is amazing! Thank you Todd for cleaning out the lint for my dryer. I am eager to see if this will solve our problem!! Thanks again for all that you guys do!

Amazing place to live

Moving in here was the next best thing to owning a home. I love my new place and truly recommend to anyone short or long term to check this place out, so many options to choose from. Love the staff, maintenance and groundskeepers. Above all wish I could live here longer but I am buying my first home soon.

Welcome Home

We moved to River Oaks, from the Detroit area, about 2 1/2 years ago. We LOVE the floor-plans, spacious apartments and the included amenities, like the in-unit washer & dryer! Our patio, covered by the balcony above, can be used even when it's raining. Our small dog is very comfortable here, too! We hope that, with the pyramid building becoming occupied, that more business will open closer to the complex (coffee shops, cleaners, etc.), but we also love the "country" feel of the area. If you make River Oaks your home, we hope that you'll love it as much as we do!

Maintenance Request

We just want to say,"Thank You" for the quick response to our maintenance request. We put in a request for our front door to be painted and even though it was low priority they fulfilled our request within 5 days! It looks great and we are very happy with the results. Thanks so much!

A great place to live

The staff at River Oaks are so nice and helpful. The maintenance crew is amazing. Whenever I have had a maintenance request, it is handled immediately and on my schedule. The grounds are kept immaculate. The complex is pet friendly. I feel safe here. All of the residents are nice and the pool social area is great.

Great place; my one issue...

It's a great place to live; the location, staff and amenities are great as well. My experience so far is that there is very little noise, if any, in the building that may cause concern. I really like it here. My one issue, however, is with the change of payment options. E-checks are no longer accepted and I'm forced to give my bank account information or use a credit/debit card (w/fees) for rent payment. As far as I'm concerned this opens me up to significant security issues; I will NOT share my bank information. So, I'm stuck with using a credit card w/fees. Not happy about this.

Great Place to Live.

The place is beautiful, maintenance comes quick with any requests, grounds are clean, safe environment and the location is perfect. The only negative is the lack of parking available. I sometimes have to park 3 or 4 buildings away from my entrance due to the limited amount of space. You're really only guaranteed a close parking spot if you come home before 7pm. If you don't mind the occasional long walk, I'd recommend living here.
