My long overdue and well deserved review :)

I have lived at Vive apt since May 2018 and signed another extended lease because I love the community, location and most of all the Vive team so much. I work walking distance and been to many other properties that my co workers live at and Vive is by far the nicest. I have my closest friends who own a condo at Cristalla in Belltown. It’s a 4 million dollar penthouse and that property lacks in comparison to all the detail, quality and consistency that Vive provides. Especially cleanliness and quality. Larry signed me out of state to my lease and have been so impressed will his commitment to details and hard work. He also provides a very positive work team environment. Sarah (previous agent) Anthony & our building engineer Cami go above and beyond always exceeding expectations. All are excellent at communication and approachable. Vive would not be what it is without them. I love living here.

Love Vive

The best community we have lived in. They have the best staff on site that helps with everything. Sarah, Larry and Cami are all helpful We love our home Our home is located near the carwash and it does not bother us. With the windows closed you can not hear a single thing We love our home, the location is the best and the staff is super understanding and helpful

My favorite place I've ever lived

I absolutely love my apartment The giant island in the kitchen is so nice to have space and spread out, really nice appliances that never break and the bathroom is really spacious. Larry and Sarah are top notch, always super helpful, friendly, and really make you feel like you're at home. They have resident events pretty much weekly, which is SO awesome and really fun. The building is really well kept, we do street parking and rarely have to park more than a block away. I love walking around Ballard because everything is so close and we even do Amazon Fresh. Seriously the best location. Anytime we have had any maintenance requests, Cami is on top of it She's really nice and helpful, and takes care of things right away. We will definitely be staying in our home for a long time.

If u want to live in the heart of Ballard V VE is the place

The location is everything, you really are in the heart of Ballard and everything is walkable. The finishes in the unit are outstanding and the size of unit is well laid out. The downside is the walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbors every move and the people above you. Overall, I love this place and will live here as long as I can.

Ok

Average apartment building, not sure it's significantly better or worse than any other new building.

Getting worse every day

I'd say that it used to be really nice when Pinnacle owned the building. Even when Weidner took over, it was still good for awhile. When Sarah and Larry came into the picture, it started to get worse, and every day it's a little worse. Our hallway constantly smells like rotting trash and it's not fixed unless I call to complain. The walls are thin. There are trash bins in front of the driveway all the time, they used to be brought up every day. I was in a car accident and the person is suing me because of these bins. I had to pay my 1000 deductible. We pay 150 a month for parking and there is someone in our spot about once a week, always someone who works there or a contractor. Our washing machine, lights , hot water heater and shower have broken more than 3 times. The front staff are pretty rude. They constantly park in the handicap spot despite the fact that someone who is handicapped lives here and then has nowhere to park. Our car was broken into and there have been constant break ins since. The security guard is sometimes there and sometimes not. When they are there, they park in the driveway. There is 0 customer service anymore and not even friendly smiles or minimally, polite behavior. I dread seeing the front people. We were out of town and late on our rent and got a vacate notice and a 50 fee. We've lived here for over a year and never been late and didn't get a courtesy phone call or email or knock on our door. With the notice to vacate, we got notice they're entering our apartment. We have 2 dogs, one of them a guard dog. They are constantly entering the apartment, I don't know why and we have to make accommodations all the time, sometimes having to board the dogs for 75 a day. Living here is awful. I cannot wait to move out.

"Hello Katherine,My apologies for any frustration or inconvenience that you have experienced as that is not the intent for our valued residents. I am glad to hear that you have spoken with the on-site team regarding these items and that they have since made changes such as a new scent being added to the trash chutes and a new security system on-site. We do have annual inspections that are required and the site team does provide notice so that any necessary arrangements with pets can be made but if you have questions about any notice that is provided to you - please do not hesitate to connect with the on-site team so that we can work to accommodate you.Kind regards,Weidner Customer Service"

Great location Safe and fun place to live

Close to Ballard Ave and a few blocks to Market Street, Vive is a great location. Staff is friendly and accommodating, they treat their residents well and strive to make it a community. The building is safe key fabs and night security with ample street parking.

Best management I have ever dealt with.

I love living at Vive, management is the best and are very helpful in all my needs as a tenant and more. I would highly recommend Vive apartments to anyone looking for a new place of residence. The cleanliness and amenities of vive is superb. Only cons would be the walls are bit thin from what I am used too, but you can easily adjust.

Clean, very nice staff, great neighborhood

All the tenants are very friendly, esp the dog owners, I have enjoyed living here for only a month, the only complaint is the parking for guests.
