For our daughter’s sophomore year at URI she was looking to be assertive, move off-campus and take care of things on her own. My husband and I agreed as long as it was within walking distance of the campus. That’s when we found North Village Condominiums. We visited the URI Townhouses website and were extremely impressed with its simplicity and availability of information on “how to” go through the leasing process—Condo Rental 101, 102, 201, 301, Application, Lease –what could be easier! As for the condos, location was key; they were clean; new renovations; located behind two plazas with several eateries, CVS, etc– perfect! An added bonus is that this venture wasn’t just about leasing a place for our kids to stay; it was also a learning experience for them. Once the parents’ paperwork was complete and tenants chosen, Zach Schartner, met with the girls to review/initial the lease which actually served as a lesson on what is involved in the signing of a lease—Condo Rental 301! All of this was definitely a good experience for all of us; and a pleasure doing business with Zach Schartner and Fortin Place, LLC. Also, I did leave a voice message on your cell to “thank you” for the return of the security deposit–very much appreciated.
