O NOT MOVE HERE!!! IF YOU WANT TO LIVE AMONGST RACIST PEOPLE AND YOUR BODY BEING POISONED BY MOLD THEN STAY HERE! The apartments are infested with mold, when we lived here we constantly asked for them to get the mold situation taken care of. I was in and out of the hospital due to mold exposure. Instead of figuring it out why the mold kept coming back, after coming over and doing a poor piss job of just wiping it up, they blamed us for the mold, and made me get rid of all my plants. If i hadn't got rid of my plants, we were going to be kicked out! When we told them about it they did not react swiftly. Oh also if you're BLACK, POC, DO NOT MOVE HERE! Neighbors constantly harassed us, damaged our property and stole our belongings. We have them on video! Told the apartment, they did nothing!! This apartment complex is toxic and racist!!!! ALSO THE APARTMENTS ARW INFESTED WITH 3 OF THE DEADLIEST MOLDS! oh and by the way , we vacated over a month ago, still no security deposit! when we asked for it, they said they deleted our file!!!… See More>

    The apartments are ok, definitely good value for the price. But the laundry rooms are disgusting. I don't think anyone has cleaned or even sweeped it up this year yet and it's almost August. The floor is nasty, the washers are super dirty and for some reason people leave their trash in the laundry room and there is no one to clean it up. I don't really get this part.

      I'm really happy to be leaving Evanbrook. I've lived here for two years and have only stayed this long due to the property being within walking distance from my office. The property manager Felicia is just terrible. She speaks to you as if you're stupid. I really don't know how else to put it. She is patronizing, doesn't want to speak to you if you come in to ask questions, and rushes you out the door, even when you're attempting to sit down and have a conversation regarding important questions you have. I would make an appointment to come in to talk but they don't do that. You just have to roll the dice and walk into the office and hope she's in a good enough mood to let you stay a few minutes to discuss your concerns. You are not a person if you live here. You're essentially a customer and with Carla Properties, the customer is seen as a complainer and an inconvenience. Rent has gone up at least $100.00 every year. Washing machines and dryers are always broke and eat your money. The amenities would be nice if there wasn't always an issue with the fitness equipment… See More>

        Erika is a wonderful manager - the other lady is pitiful and no help at all. Have not had to use maintenance so I don't know about them yet. Wish Erika was here all the time. She is so nice!!! Units are big and lots of storage

          1/20/15 I do not recommend this apartment The former onsite managers here were quite supportive. On the positive side the maintenance team who have always been helpful and problems have been dealt with in a friendly and efficient manner. Until this recent change in management my experience had been reasonably good. Problems were settled in a effective manner. Mutual concerns were discussed amicably. The most recent change in management is for the worse. It is regrettable that things have gone downhill so quickly. I believe that there is a lack of true concern for tenants issues. I believe management to be both biased and uncooperative. When I have approached the onsite manager with an issue I have been treated like an adversary rather than someone to be supported and acknowledged . In my opinion, management is more concerned with her own problems then any issue you may have. The autocratic atmosphere is pervasive . We have had several issues that could have been dealt with in a adult, reasonable and responsible manner but instead were met with a negative attitude by the manager and so far the the corporate body she fervently serves ...I… See More>

            I have lived in Evanbrook apartments for over 5 years. The grounds are well groomed, maintenance is quick to respond and the management is very nice. The only complaint I have is the caliber of the new residents that are renting here. Police have been to the complex more and more lately and complaints over the last year in regards to one particular unit has yield no positive results.

                    Very Happy

                    I have been living in these apartments for nearly 11 years. I have zero complaints. The rent is reasonable. The apartments are nice. The best part about living here are the people. The management is unbelievable. The maintenance crew always willing to fix even the smallest of problems in a timely manner. The residents are very nice and most importantly quiet. I have never had a noise complaint. Evanbrook comes highly recommended!!!!!

                      Poor Corporate Management

                      I've been a resident for several years now and while I once enjoyed this apartment community, recent events have left me wondering if I'll be renewing my upcoming lease. The owner of Evanbrook is Carla Properties, LLC ("CP") (carlaprop.com/). It is my opinion that those who work in their corporate offices need additional business education. Treating those who have created wealth for you and your owners with respect and understanding should be of primary concern to you. After all, we are YOUR customers and we should be treated accordingly. This, however, does NOT appear to be of any interest to you. Recently, it was made clear that what CP IS interested in is short-term profitability and in service of this exercises an archaic 1950's-style business philosophy. It is an utter disappointment as there is a lot to like about the property. But if I cannot trust that I have committed myself to a business arrangement that will be maintained in good faith, then the experience of living here is diminished, if not destroyed. I will say that the office management is great, the maintenance is expedient and competently performed, the grounds and apartments are quiet, seem safe and are not unattractive. … See More>

                        I LOVE IT HERE!!

                        I moved here July 2010 from S.E. Portland. I'd been casually searching for some time. Evanbrook offered a 13 month lease w/ one month free rent..gym, pool, sauna, tennis court, covered parking, game room..etc. I was told it was "a very quiet building." I met Cheri & Kelly who were and are AWESOME!! The maintenance team of Cal & Carlos are professional, courteous, and friendly. My apt. overlooks a creek..heaven. I have nothing but good things to say..and by the way..it is a VERY quiet place to live!!

                          Quiet for nightshifters!

                          I've lived here for the last year and it is set apart from other complexes I've stayed in. The management know you by name, are polite, and maintenance requests are completed the day they are made. Every request has been something minor as there are no major flaws with the units. The area is very quiet which makes it easy for those who work night shifts. Will continue to rent here.

                            I am a quiet young female college student that needed a place for 3 months and this place was great! Kelly and Cheri made my stay at Evanbrook a wonderful experience. The facilities are kept clean and the neighbors are friendly. I use the club-house gym often and feel very safe walking around the neighborhood. My small dog likes it here too. Maintenance has always helped me and I have no complaints. They really take care of their tenants.

                              The fantastic staff keep me here year after year.

                              This apt community is quite appealing. The landscaping is beautiful, with well-preserved older trees and foilage. My unit is on the third floor and backs up to a creek which provides a feeling of tranquility and solitude. Instead of being a drawback, the age of the community not only offers character, but solid construction. I rarely hear my neighbors. One would think that the location on NW Barnes could be a deterrent, but in fact offers easy access to everything a person could possibly need: upscale grocery store (with an excellent wine selection), hair and nail salons, banks, dry cleaners, hardware store, fast food and destination restaurants. Even the library is within an easy walk. With all this within walking, there is very little (if any) traffic noise. The pools are well maintained, with beautiful, well kept seasonal flowers. The property has a very adequate laundry facility with a lovely new sitting area, with a flat screen TV to watch if you wish to stay with your laundry. The fitness center is nearly new and provides most machines a gym would offer. The maintainance guys are the best!! They really… See More>

                                So Far, So Great!

                                The past four-plus years at Evanbrook have been the best experience I've had living in an apartment community! Convenient location to the MAX, grocery stores, restaurants (fast and sit-down), shopping centers, movie theatre, and more. Both management and maintenance are most efficient and friendly. The grounds are really quite beautiful and provide plenty of photo-snapping opportunities (as evidenced from the included personal photos). It is a fairly quiet community, with the exceptions to that truly being rare. I generally do not hear my neighbors and would assume (and hope) they can say the same. As with any review, this has been my experience only, but I would have absolutely no qualms recommending Evanbrook to any of my family or friends.

                                  This is a well-designed complex that couldn't be situated better--close to both shopping and Sunset Transit Center. The grounds are peaceful with lots of trees, even a creek in back, and beautiful views of the West Hills. My experience with management could not be more different from a previous reviewer's. They have been AWESOME--very friendly and accommodating (they even welcomed my two parrots). This is a super place to live

                                    They want to squeeze every single penny from you and they don't do anything within their convenience to help you. If you think you want to live here, think it twice.

                                        I moved here about a year ago and have never been happier! The maint. guys are the best, always smiling and willing to help. (They are fast and effeciant.)I have also never had more of a friendly and considerate apartment Manager(s). They where doing some consturction about it was only to imporve the property and make the latest and greatest available in internet service with one phone call. We or at least i was notified of the times and days they would be setting up my apartment and it looked like a mass form so i would imagine everyone was informed. The water is a little loud but the neighbors are quiet and the buildings are kind of old but well kept so you have to expect some noise. I love the natural souroundings the trees and birds it is nice to have a little country in in of the city ya know. Anyways i love it here and i think you will too!

                                          Good place to live, relatively cheap especially when comparing to anywhere in portland. that said, it is very noisy, water noise is always audible when the person above is home. pray the person above you isnt home alot and the person below you wont hate you for routine activites such as washing dishes or closing cabinets. however there is a personal parking spot, i never see questionable people on the grounds, and nearby rec centers and parks, so i like it here quite a bit... although not quite so much when the person above me is at home. definately not a bad place to live, i dont plan on moving anytime soon.

                                            This property has a lot of construction going on, What bothers me most is they want<br>to get in your apartment with or without your consent, and their work absolutely has nothing to do with normal maintainence. <br>For example, they want Verizon to add Fiber Optics to add value to this property. and your privacy is the last thing they care about. and worst of all, Verizon dig the hole on the ground and eventually drill to the water pipe and resulted water being shut down, you have no way to cook, to use bath room, to take a shower. approach this property under your own direcretion

                                              if you move in here move to the top floor, because you can hear the people above flush the toilets which sounds like a rapid river going after a storm and everytime a shower from upstairs comes on it is so loud forget about quiet time or sleep it's all over. You can hear the shower from your side neighboor and below too. They are quick to fix anything they can that goes wrong in the apartment and the staff is very friendly and helpful. When the neighbors walk no matter how petite they are the entire floor and stairs echo and pound throughout your apartment.

                                                I have lived in these apts for a long time. Over the course of my tenure my experience has been reasonable although I have had encounters with scary tenants, was attacked once in the parking lot, had my car broken into, and had to deal with managers who were less than helpful. I get the feeling sometimes that the building could fall apart before the property manager would allow the maintenance staff to do anything other than slap a coat of paint on it. <br>Nevertheless, for the price, this is a decent place to live although the neighborhood is rapidly declining with several local businesses being held up at gunpoint in the last three months.

                                                  Evanbrook is nearly the perfect apartment community, in my opinion. I don't have a car, and it's only a few-minute walk from a grocery store and restaurants. It's on two buslines that get me anywhere else I might need to go - it's so convenient! The management staff (and the maintenance staff, too) are the friendliest and most accomodating that I have ever encountered. I'm very pleased with the crew here. I had a fairly old dishwasher in my apartment, and one day it died - and within two hours I had a brand new dishwasher. It's that kind of service that makes me love this place. It's just wonderful to live here!
