The ResidentPortal app provides a convenient way to pay rent, submit maintenance orders with photos, and communicate with your apartment community all from your mobile phone.
Residents have the ability to pay rent with a single tap, manage one-time or recurring rent payments and receive rent reminder push notifications with the app (see below for a list of key features).
Much of the ResidentPortal app is configurable by the property in which you live. Property settings include, but are not limited to, payment methods, payment days, full balance payment requirements, or maintenance request availability.

Ratings and Reviews
Use this app If the property management enables it
First, let me say (after reading some other reviews) that this app appears to only be as good as the property management setting it up for their company.
I've have two maintenance requests so far, both done quickly and correctly, but that has little to do with the app and more with the on-staff here.
Anyways, I enjoy this app because:
1- Push Notifications
2- Simple to link a bank and/or credit/debit card
(I recommend taking that extra step to link your bank directly so that you aren't charged a convenience fee that comes with credit/debit charges.)
You can easily "swipe" through all your transactions, which is nice because it lets me keep up with my utility spending, letting me know if my spending is high in electric or water.
Al I'm all, if the property you're living on lets you use this app, I recommend downloading it and trying it at least for one payment cycle.
Good payment portal but clunky maintenance app
Honestly, it’s super easy to use for making payments on my rent. It saves multiple forms of payment and is free if you are using electronic checks by giving them a checking account to draft from each month. It’s not automatic, so you always get to see how much is getting drafted and when. I appreciate that because sometimes my paychecks don’t always land on the first.
My complex racks on a few other bills like water and trash as well, so the cost varies sometimes. I receive a written letter of how much those extra fees are per month, but I can’t see total amount due until the amount is actually due. Since they send me out the letter a week in advance, I wish there was a way to see that in the app as well. I just hate checking my mail or wasting paper when an electronic notification within the app seems like it would be easy.
The maintenance side of the app still feels clunky to me, so it’s a feature I don’t use much. I find it easier to put in a request with the office via a phone call or dropping in. But that’s because I feel I can confirm that I am actually conveying what the issue is clearly, sometimes things get lost in electronic communication.
Overall still feels pretty solid though. I’m glad my complex utilizes this app.
Good, but Maintenance Section Needs Improvement
This is a very good and easy to use app for rent payments and maintenance requests. HOWEVER, the maintenance request section needs improvement. When you select the area in your residence that needs work, the next field that shows the type of work needed should have some kind of filter applied based on the area you just selected. To elucidate, if I select “Kitchen“ so that I can have my garbage disposal fixed, I should not have to sift through options like “car wash“, “front door“, swimming pool“, and so on in the next field. Is there a swimming pool in my kitchen?! Is there a car wash in my kitchen?! I think not. These options should be filtered out so that I can go straight to the ones that are relevant to my kitchen. This seems like a very easy thing for the developers to do, but it has been this way for years.
Other than that, a good app.
