I wasn't a fan of the old apartment complex management, however this new management has really made things better. If I had known they were going to be so good I wouldn't have signed with another complex early on.

The apartment complex has became a lot nicer since we've changed names. The staff looks nicer with the uniforms, the shuttle is so nice and the experience here lately makes me feel like everyone here knows me
