Reviews for The Forest Apartments

Posted On: 3/8/2022

Home in The Forest

We are long term residents in The Forest. This is our 17th year here! The management of the property has improved considerably since Lena Silva became manager. The maintenance staff has consistently been good over the years. We enjoy making The Forest our home.

A Nice Place to Live

The Forest is a nice property. It's in a great location (accessible to stores/shops/metro/bus/highways) and is small and quaint. I enjoy the greenery and access to Rock Creek Park and areas of hiking. The buildings are noticeably older/worn. The crew puts in efforts to care for the grounds and keeps the community very nice. The mailboxes need to be updated for sure. The apartments are spacious and cozy. Some are quite outdated but it seems as though they are slowly renovating them as they go. The full size washer/dryers are great. The noise level isn't too bad but at times you can hear your neighbors and their pets. Can also hear the announcer for evening games at the school which isn't great I like that you need a fob to access each buildings. Lots of residents have pets and some very large ones. Not everyone cleans up after their pets. Also, the garbage cans can fill up quickly and often overflow. The staff in the office is top notch. They are polite and helpful and I do believe they truly care for the residents (so refreshing). It seems as though they are short staffed as the office is at times closed or closing early and sometimes it can be hard to get someone on the phone. The parking overall is fine for residents but visitor parking is tough. There are few spaces and you need a pass to have visitors after 7pm. However, you can only get the pass during the office hours which are standard working hours. Office closures also impact the ability to get a pass. That makes it very tough if you are not home to pick up the pass or if you are having an unplanned visitor or one on Sundays (office closed). I really hope that they can figure out a way to make this more efficient for residents. Overall I enjoy living at The Forest Apartments! Pros: Great staff. Great maintenance crew. One reserved parking spot per home. Grounds kept well. Quiet. Great location. Bus accessible. Cons: Visitor parking, hard to get staff on phone at times, old mailboxes, trash area overflow
