    250 High

    Columbus, OH 43215

    I just love where I am! The staff is terrific, the common areas are always kept clean and the residents are very respectful. I be the workout area and the outside patio. It is wonderful to entertain upstairs!

  • I've always had a great experience with RedPeak staff, so it's not surprising that the level of professionalism, cleanliness and responsiveness is top-notch at 7/S, but the location and building itself cannot be beat. I have a walk-out apartment which is incredibly convenient with a dog, and I have never had any safety or noise concerns. The proximity of Trader Joe's for shopping and all the great restaurants and bars can't be beat, and the residents at 7/S are super friendly and welcoming.

  • Nice and Modern Building. Professionally Trained Staff. Reasonable Price. Great Location (close to all kinds of stores, 2 major highways, next to Bart Station,...). We also received one month free when we signed 13 months contract. Can't be better than this.

  • It's a great place to live, the staff is amazing and very responsive. The rooftop is amazing and it's great to go up and work in the garden or BBQ on nice days. Plenty of community spaces to sit and talk. Love the gym!

  • I move to Florida from Connecticut in search of new possibilities for my family. I found my self homless with my family and our things in storage, everything went downhill from my previous arrangements and where we were going to stay. A kind woman named Elsa Dejesus gave me all the information I needed for a deposit and stated that once I got my deposit she would make sure I would get my place with the next available opening. The office manager, Elsa, was very eager to help in every way. Now that I have lived in Florida for 3 years she did more than her share in helping me maintain and get into my current Residence at Brandywine on 40th Street. I appreciate all the efforts that Brandywine makes for their tenants and all that they have done for my family. If you need things to work for you in time, why wait choose Brandywine!

  • Very pleasant community to live in. The Management is the best around! The Briarwood community is very conveniently located to my work, shopping, restaurants and to 95. I enjoy seeing other families. The place is very safe and a joy to live in.

  • So far so good! Apt was in excellent condition and everyone has been very helpful! Looking forward to living here and exploring more of all the building has to offer during warmer months. We are very happy with our decision.

    Claremont on the Square

    Exton, PA 19341

    After living in The Gardens in Eagleview for 21 years, my wife and I moved in May to Claremont on the Square, as we approach retirement. We loved everything about Eagleview for two decades-but now we like it even more. Living on the square finds us in the middle of all that goes on as to shopping, restaurants, concerts, etc. We hear no noise from neighboring apartments and love the social events that the management team sponsors for its residents. The building and grounds are kept amazingly well. We should have moved sooner!!!!

  • Our experience has been very good. Sarah and the entire staff are always helpful and friendly. We love being so close to everything in Old Town Alexandria. The apartments are very nice and the entire property is well maintained. We enjoy living at the Clayborne.

  • The staff was very helpful and nice. Answered all my questions while never getting impatient as I kept returning to the office with more questions. The apartment was move-in ready and clean. Everything working as it should. The other residences I have met thus far are all friendly and welcoming. I think its going to be a great place.

  • I enjoy living here. The staff is very helpful, responsive, and friendly. I get same day responses to any questions or concerns. I always feel safe, welcomed, and at home. The building is secure and the mail is delivered through a secured system. The people are nice. I thoroughly enjoy living here.

  • I love Eagles West! The staff and community is all very welcoming and I love the fact that they put on themed days with food available for us residents! Eagles West is also awesome due to the fact that it's so close to campus, just a 7 min bike ride and I'm at the front of campus in class!

  • The Elkins Park Terrace Community is great! The building is very clean and very quiet. The workout room is awesome and the laundry facilities are cheap and efficient maintenance is always around to lend a helping hand and if you need something fixed in your apartment your request is taken care of within 48 hours. I really like living in Elkins Park Terrace

  • I was please when I came to see the apartment after my husband passed away. Your staff may me feel right at home and I have enjoy living here from the first day I move in. I enjoy the wine party, bingo, TiChi, Zumba chair exercise, summer time the pool. I have to say a good time was had by all.

  • Great Place. Hdidjsjdidjj Ksjdijsjdjdjdjidiejenxijndidjjejejdujdjdjisjendjdjdiejnendjdjdjiejendjdjdjnejdjdjejdjjdjdjejdndnnendnjdjdjeijendjdjdjjejejejejejejejejejejdjdjjejdndndnndndjejejendndnjenejejejejejwidjdnixnendnd

  • I was looking for a place to call home where I could just move in. I wanted to have a full washer and dryer, got it in my unit. I wanted wood floors with my allergies, got them. When I was first told of the sq footage I was already telling myself no. But when the front door opened I was amazed. It sure looked bigger than I expected. My bedroom is large enough to have full dresser, queen bed, nights stands, my almost wall to wall desk, walk in closet. The bathroom is quite a nice size I don't feel closed in at all big soaking tub. Patio with electric outlet. The grounds by me have a large firepit that is electric start and plenty of seating for your guests and others. The pool is salt heard of that but it's enjoyable. Another seating area near the pool with a fireplace on remote control. 2 gas grills. I just can't say enough. Customer service from the office staff is impeccable. I'm waiting for the car wash to go in. Anyone would enjoy living here. My fob keyless entry makes me feel safe. The valet trash pickup at my front door. Really? Very lovely here.

  • My Experience has been convenient,safe and for the most part travel ready. Location is everything as a community resident.However the street parking is the only Issue at this present moment. Also Glenwood and Ravine avenue has a hill so if a day is looking to move here just purchase good all year tires with a warranty for the "snow".
