    Both of my sinks broke multiple times and the 'handy' man was incapable of fixing them and the management has no sympathy for coronavirus challenges.

    I wanted to send a quick note of thanks to DJ For taking care of a few things happening in my apartment in a short amount of time! He is always quick to respond and make sure his projects get carried out all the way through. He is good about keeping me informed about how long something will take, when he will get to it, etc. I truly appreciate his communication and follow-through!

    The Archer apartment that I rented for my college son, and the entire experience from moving in to moving out, was outstanding—100 percent due to Tangela’s oversight, responsiveness, caring and amazing attention to detail. She is such a great resource, and made everything easy. One felt they were in good hands from the start

    Been here for awhile, and really like the neighborhood. It's not the fanciest building, but I'm so excited that our mailing room now has a package locker so our stuff doesn't randomly go missing. So far, new management company has been responsive.
