I have lived here for nearly a year and absolutely love the place. Some of these reviews are interesting; I have never had my car broken into or have heard gun shots, the only things I hear are the light rail passing by and the weekend… See More

The managers aren't there to make the tenants happy, they're there to make money. The neighborhood is scummy and on numerous occasions there have been gunshots and police all over the place. I couldn't recommend this place any less.
Sonoran Ridge Manager06/20/2013

Dear Frustrated Tenant, I was sorry to read that you feel Sonoran Ridge does not care about the needs of our residents and wanted to reach out to you regarding your experience. It is our goal to provide a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable apartment home living experience for all our residents and I can honestly say it is my number one priority. I would invite you to meet with me in person or call me, so that we are able to discuss what we can do to improve upon your experience at Sonoran Ridge. Feedback (even though it may not always be complimentary) is always appreciated from current and past residents. I assure you that we always strive to provide superior quality customer service to everyone. To address the concern with gunshots and the police in the area, I have not received any reports about gunshots in the area. If you are hearing this type of activity, please report them to the office as well as the Tempe Police Department. Sonoran Ridge participates in the Tempe Crime Free Housing Program and as such has strict policies about criminal activity in our community. You will often see police vehicles drive through our community because of this program. Crime can happen anywhere at anytime in any neighborhood so we work closely with the police department as well as our residents in being proactive in our approach to this type of activity. Please do not hesitate to contact me at your earliest convenience. Kristina Community Manager Sonoran Ridge Apartments

I really liked living Sonoran Ridge. Relatively quiet, the pool and closets are a little small. Staff and maintenance are super friendly, always go out their way to help. You don't feel like your just another check every month, the staff knows your name.
Sonoran Ridge Manager07/17/2012

Dear med2012, Thank you for your review of our community! Our team goal is to provide excellent service -both in the office and through our maintenance team- at all times. We are grateful to have such terrific residents and love to hear that people are happy when calling Sonoran Ridge home. In the future, if you have ideas or suggestions on how we may better serve our residents please don't hesitate to contact me. My door is always open!

This is hands down the worst living situation I've had in my four years in Tempe. I'd say the only good thing about it is it's location (heart of tempe and close to light rail) which is actually a double edged sword because of the bums… See More
