We're sorry that you had a bad experience at River Forest. We'd love for you to contact us to discuss the specifics of your concerns during your stay with us. We would like to address the false allegations of the management staff of River Forest posting reviews as residents of River Forest. We take our online presence and reputation very seriously and would never do anything to jeopardize our relationships with internet listing sources. As policy enforcers ourselves, we hold rules and regulations at the utmost regard. I would also like to point out that you yourself reviewed anonymously as both negative and positive posters chose to do as they see fit. You are correct in stating our utilities are separately billed as you'll find to be the case with a lot of our competitors in the area.

How exciting that we got to be apart of your home buying journey! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to house your family while your home was being finished. The pool and new grilling area happen to be a few of our favorite amenities too. The fresh mulch at the playground helps to ensure the little ones will be safe as well as keeps our community looking sharp. We hope that you're finding the new place to be everything you hoped for!

We're delighted you're getting settled here at River Forest and hope that you're finding yourself cozy in Chester! Thanks for the feedback on your quick move in. It's nice that you haven't needed maintenance for any service requests, but we're glad to have you covered on our routine preventative maintenance calls. We appreciate your honesty on the trash compactor. We're lucky enough to have the maintenance team we do to keep up with the grounds at our community. It's a tough job and we don't tend to thank them enough, so we'll pass along the job well-done happily. We hope to see you at our dive in movie on Friday, 07/28!
