submitted by Luke S. - |Recommended: YesWe made a great choice picking Madison at Ballston Station — Diamond in the rough, when you look at the general location to downtown Ballston and other necessities i.e. grocery story, pharmacy etc. Checked all the boxes for us and very accommodating, great location, size, amenities for a great price

submitted by Michael R. - |Recommended: YesGreat Property Questionable parking garage — The property is a very nice property but if you have a standard size car or standard size SUV, you may want to consider renting somewhere else. The parking spaces in the garage are narrow.

submitted by Caitlin M. - |Recommended: NoN a — You can hear absolutely everything and everyone in this apartment building. The amount of people running through the hallways at all hours of the night is absurd. Overall, the move in process was not great. There's frequently trash in the hallways and a mess. There was a puddle in my hallway for over a week that just had a caution sign next to it but wasn't cleaned up.

We apologize that you have had such a negative experience while living at our community.

submitted by Jamison W. - |Recommended: YesA Nice Place to Live — The Madison is a nice place to live. After living here since Summer of 2017, I can absolutely recommend these apartments. The amenities are nice and occasionally updated. The concierge staff are friendly and remember me by name. The maintenance staff are professional and efficient. The leasing staff are responsive and caring.
response from property -Thanks so much Jamison! I love hearing this and are so happy that we have taken such great care of you over the last two years. We truly value you as a resident and appreciate that you have continued to call the Madison home. If there is anything else we can do to make Madison a better community, please let us know!
submitted by CONSTANCE V. - |Recommended: YesOverall great place to live — Overall, we really enjoyed living here for three years. We did not like that the smoking policy changed in the middle of our lease, especially when one of the first things we asked is if we are allowed to smoke in the building. We were not pleased that this policy changed especially while dogs and pets can roam freely. After renewing your lease the building will clean your carpets or paint your apartment for free - nice perk to keep things fresh and new. This building is about 30 seconds from the 4B bus stop that takes you to the Courthouse and Rosslyn metros so that was super convenient. Ballston Quarter also recently opened up and it is only a 10-minute walk from the building. However, this is not conveniently close to the Ballston metro as advertised -- it is quite a hike.
response from property -Wow, 3 years, thank you so much for choosing to call Madison your home. We are sorry to hear that you have been inconvenienced by the new non smoking policy that was put into affect last year. We love how close Ballston Quarter is as well and how easy it is to get to from our building. We are always hear to talk through any of your concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything specific we can address for you. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience. Sincerely, Taryn S.
submitted by Consuello G. - |Recommended: YesRecommended. — Great location in a lovely neighborhood with a short walk to downtown Ballston - food, shopping entertainment access to public transportation. The building is well kept with newer amenities and multiple secure access points good neighbors with plenty of parking in the garage. Staff management courteous accommodating when I toured the location, responsive caring during my lease term - supportive above beyond the requirement during my transition out. If I weren’t leaving the area, I would renew my lease.
response from property -Thank you Consuello for the awesome feedback! We are happy to hear that you had such a great experience while living here at our community! We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and we will make sure to pass along your comments to the team. They will be happy to know they are doing such a great job!

submitted by Ryan M. - |Recommended: YesGreat location, awesome amenities — The pool and grilling area make for a great summer hang out spot. The apartments are beautiful and modern. The only downside is the gym is a little sparse, no bench press squat racks or even smith machine, but for an apartment building gym it's not too bad. Overall though, I am very happy with my new apartment and apartment complex

submitted by Turki H. - |Recommended: YesUnhappy with rent rate — This is gonna be my 3rd year as resident customer. It is really a good place to live in. It is clean and stat are helpful and professional. I really disappointed with the continue rising of the rent rate especially this year.

submitted by Kyle H. - |Recommended: NoWIll not renew lease due to upstairs neighbors making too much noise and management's inability to address the issue. — Management does not effectively address noise complaints.

Please feel free to reach out to him directly at 703-527-4040. Sincerely, Taryn S.
submitted by Patrick A. - |Recommended: YesLove The Madison, but not upstairs neighbors — I love everything about living at the Madison except for when I head upstairs neighbors. Space between floors ask as a sounding board and amplifies footsteps. Other than that the grounds, the staff, planned activities and proximity to the local attractions make this a wonderful place to live. I certainly recommend it.
response from property -Hi Patrick, I am so happy to hear that you are loving your home at the Madison! Our team is happy to address any noise concerns you may be experiencing and will be reaching out shortly to discuss. We work really hard on maintaining an amazing community and are so happy to hear those efforts haven't been missed by you. Thank you again for the great review and we look forward to speaking with you soon. Sincerely, Taryn S.
submitted by Hannah - |Recommended: YesLove our little place — The Madison is such an amazing place to live Everyone is so friendly and warm I have only had a couple issues with one of the people at the front desk but other than that, we love our little apartment The only other thing is I have been trying to get the measurement of the bedroom window so I can purchase blackout curtains and nobody has gotten back to me.
response from property -Hi Hannah, Thank you for the positive review and for sharing your experience us. We are happy to hear that you love living here! Our team strives to provide the highest level of customer service and we are disappointed to hear that your experience with the front desk has been less than ideal.
