    It has been a great experience so far living at Lyric. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful and the apartment is in a prime location, minutes away from all the downtown Walnut Creek amenities.

    4/5 Barbara S. on Dec 23, 2019

    I’ve only been here a short while but the management team has been great. The location is great and most of the neighbors I’ve met have been great as well. The only drawback is cost. Otherwise I would certainly recommend the property.

    We just moved in last week, the apartment is great and modern! We are loving the lock system and the pool. The apartment is cute and all clean! Everything is great!

    5/5 Antony M. on Jun 11, 2019

    The move in process was very smooth for us. The residents here are very nice and it’s very quiet. The entire apartment complex is well kept and clean. The building seems safe and secure. We love the area, so many places to eat and at a walking distance to Target ( my favorite place) and other stores. Parking is assigned but there’s plenty of parking outside for your visitors. Tyler, the leasing agent, is great she helped us picked the perfect floor plan for our needs. Loving the pool and common area. We’re Looking forward to Summer 2019!!!!
