“Best place I’ve ever lived” – what our residents think of ‘Superenting’ at The Forge

How’s life at The Forge? A question we often ask our residents as giving them a rental experience like no other in Newcastle means everything.

We think we do an excellent job, and have found out our residents do too! All thanks to the team at HomeViews – the independent review site for residential developments dubbed the TripAdvisor for property – who helped us quiz our lovely residents about what they think about us. We’ll let you in on a sneak peek into the results…

Let’s start with our rating…

Get this…we bagged ourselves an overall average of 4.63 out of 5 stars when residents were asked to rate our design, facilities, value, location and management – one of the highest star ratings HomeViews has ever had for any type of residential development…just saying! “An amazing place to live*” sums up one of our resident’s time at The Forge so far.

On to management…

The development is professionally managed by Allsop and we’ve a dedicated team on hand 24/7, so there’s always someone to welcome you home and make life that bit easier. This hasn’t gone unnoticed, as residents rated us 4.72 out of 5 stars on average in this area, with one resident saying “the most welcoming place I’ve ever lived, with understanding, responsive staff and great, reliable facilities*.” We’re blushing!

Making the development a social place to live where you have the chance to get to know your neighbours and have fun in your home is a big thing for us. We put on events of all kinds from a Love Island final party to Wimbledon screenings (with strawberries and cream and Pimms of course), how’s that for a perk.

Now the facilities…

Residents’ lounge, meeting room, gym, parcel lockers, cycle storage – we could go on! We like to think we’ve thought of everything you could need and it’s pretty stylish too! So to hear “the facilities are outstanding, especially the gym and the common room with the coffee machine and large-screen TV*” made our day.

And that’s not all, “what first appeared as a modern, well-designed building concept has emerged into somewhere I would regard as a beautiful home*” – we’re so pleased!

We can’t wait to see the full reviews and ratings published on HomeViews later this year as part of its national launch.

So what are you waiting for? If you’re looking for a new home in Newcastle why not become a resident here at The Forge? Come and take a look around – you know you want to!
