Rated 5 out of 5?by Joshua91 So happy
I moved here from out of state and feel super lucky that I found this place. To begin with, Tracy helped me do the leasing over the phone/mail and made it easy every step of the way. After being here a year, I still dont have any complaints.
The apartment it self is very nice (I'm in the 2bedroom with study). I had one issue with the toilet and they came a replaced it the next day! Other than that, I've had no maintenance issues. The grounds themselves are in great shape and are always maintained. The pool is very nice as well.
To top it off, the staff and the neighbors have been nothing but nice and friendly.
If there is an opening, I highly recommend you get a place here.
P.S. Tracy is the best office manager I've had yet!

I have been living at Northville Forest Apartments for 2 1/2 years since I moved here from out of state. Original plan was to stay only for one year, but I love the apartment and felt I could not find a better community or value. Management (both Tracy, leasing manager and Mike, property manager) have been great! They are responsive to my needs and have been very cooperative. I really count on them to continue to make my living experience here top-notch. The quality of the apartment and location is excellent. I am located in the back so traffic and noise are minimal. The grounds are well kept. I am within 25 minutes of downtown Detroit and Ann Arbor. Close to Hinds Drive is a BIG plus if you are a cyclist. Another important factor is the type of renters living here. No big loud parties or wild out of control people that I have encountered. Just nice folks.

Rated 4 out of 5?by MrPinkies Biggest bang for your buck!
This place is AWESOME.. We got one of their town homes.. they tiled the entry way, kitchen, and bathrooms.. HUGE basement... You can hear some noise from neighbors, but, really, not a big deal.. the maintenance is very very fast to come out and fix things.. we moved here in the winter and this place with all the big trees.. it is very beautiful in the winter time.. plus, in the summer, the trees block the sun from coming in our windows and heating the place up! I'm going to be living here for as long as I can.. Two things worth mentioning, the buildings were built in the 70s.. I don't care about that, I grew up in a home that was built in the 1800s.. and the fridge/stove are up to date, but, on the middle to low end of models.. again.. nothing I care about.. This place is close to 275, 14, 96, and 696.. can't really beat living anywhere else! Plymouth Canton schools are AWESOME too!!!

Rated 1 out of 5?by Ibelieveinthetruth Move here only if you have to...
This is a good neighborhood, but this complex was built originally as section 8 housing, which means a lot of the regulations were skipped over. A lot. The walls are very thin, to the point where - you better like your neighbors because you are going to hear them, every day (and yes, there is always that at apartments but this is like a hearing them word for word situation). While I was there they had good maintenance and staff, but when I left there was a turnover and they hired a manager who seemed to have very little experience with real people (I think she was customer service person previously, but only over the phone). It's cheap rent for the area, but be wary of the fact that it is cheap for a reason.

Rated 5 out of 5?by PaperMoon This is where I wish to live for the rest of my life.
I've rented for a great part of my life, and have never enjoyed any complex more than Northville Forest Apartments. The sense of community here is unlike any other place. The office staff is great, maintenance is top notch, and it's own by a private family, rather than a huge corporation. It may lack some amenities offered by other places, the personal attention more than makes up for the inconvenience of doing dishes by hand and buying your own microwave. The windows are really bad, so the heating bills are high, but that is offset by the reasonable rental cost. I'm happy here, and I love my neighbors!
