“Best Rental Experience Ever”
A true gem. Our experience with the staff that manages the property has been phenomenal. Beata was very helpful in getting us the apartment... She guided us through [the process] and was kind enough to meet us with keys to move in on a weekend. Marco was exceptional and very professional whenever we had a service call. He kept the grounds tidy and well manicured. I must say, I have yet to see him grumpy, always wears a smile. He was always there to ensure the roads were clear as soon as it snowed. AMAZING!
