How is Our Service?

We want to hear about your Foxridge & Hethwood Apartment Homes experience!

Complete a survey at our website. Feedback results are very important to us at Foxridge & Hethwood Apartment Homes; in many cases we make changes in response to your input, and we would like the opportunity to ensure we are continually exceeding your expectations.

Condition Reports

We appreciate our residents and want you to be happy in your apartment home. Due to the high volume of services required during this time of the year, you may experience longer response times.

If you have just moved into your new apartment home, the first resident to move in will receive a time sensitive condition report. You will have the opportunity to document items that are not 100% perfect in your apartment home.

If you request service for repair, emergency items will be addressed first, with non-emergency items to be scheduled at a later date. All items will be addressed within 30 days of the original request.

When a member of our service team enters your apartment, they will provide you with a Note indicating they have entered the apartment home and what repairs were performed. Some repairs may result in multiple visits to complete all requests.

It is Foxridge and Hethwood policy to lock the entry door when a staff member leaves an apartment. We appreciate your feedback and your patience and understanding.

Goodwill Donation Pick-Ups

Mark you calendars! Goodwill will be set up on the property on August 3rd to accept donations. The truck will be parked on Tall Oaks Drive in the Blue Ridge Drive/Cardinal Court area from 11am – 4pm.

In the event that you would like to donate large items (sofa, tables, dressers, etc.) and you are unable to deliver it to the drop site, a Goodwill employee will pick up the items at the apartment. Please contact the Goodwill directly at 540-524-0079. They will try their best to accommodate all pick ups.
