The Edison has good staff on hand to help. The rental office, as well as maintenance guys are great & always happy to help. The grounds are always clean, it always smells good, & it's just a pretty place to live in. The building has key card entry at the doors which helps make me feel safe. I have recommended this building to my friends and recommend it to anyone looking. While the price may be a little high compared to living in the Fan, it is definitely worth it in my eyes.

Authors info: Medical Student. Lived at The Edison Apartments from 2015-2019. I left the facility because I had to relocate to a different state for residency training. Facility: If I didn't have to relocate I would have continued to live at this place. I lived in the tower. My neighbors were other young health care professionals, which made for a great environment. There were plenty of study spaces available. The place was quiet, very clean, very safe (never had an issues with crime) and well maintained. An easy 10-minute walk to the medical center and you get to walk through the capital. I rarely drove because of this. I was able to easily rent out the lounge or movie theater for events. The gym was great as well as the yoga room. All supplies in the gym were well maintained and worked properly. My apartment was very modern and whenever I had issues, the maintenance team was quick to respond and solve my issue. Overall rating: 10/10 Office Manager (Camarin): Camarin was the best office manager someone could ask for. I originally lived in California and I had to apartment shop over the phone. She was patient and honest with how my apartment looked and how the facility ran when she spoke to me over the phone. When I flew into Richmond and saw my apartment (already purchased) everything she said was true. She was the definition of customer services, professionalism, and humanism. She was always welcoming and available. She addressed all of my concerns promptly. Because of her, my move out of the facility was smooth as butter. While Camarin was running the facility, all of my co-residents also noticed and felt we were in good hands. I would hire her to run my company if I could. Overall rating: 10/10 Maintenance Team (Kyle and Vince): Both of these gentlemen were very kind and welcoming. The best crew money Cant buy. Whenever I had a maintenance issue they were quick and professional. Overall ratting: 10/10

The reason I gave them a excellent rating is because of management, maintenance, overall living conditions, and cleanliness of property. The management at Edison apartments does an extraordinary job and they are very professional and efficient. The maintenance is very friendly and professional when I ever have any issues with the apartment. But I seldomly have any issues with the apartment! Its my first time renting an apartment. They have made my stay at the Edison as pleasant and pleasurable experience! The one big plus I have to say about the Edison apartments team is that they throw community gatherings which help the tentants get to know there neighbors which is great to help gain new friendships. I would suggest the Edison apartments to any age group!!

We love the building. It is very unique with some history. I love being able to use the club room for small gatherings that I could never do in the apartment. Most importantly, Mary is really great! She is always helpful with whatever we need.
