    5/5 Laura G. on Jun 29, 2023

    I've lived here for a wonderful 11years and plan on staying along time more. The staff manager Shannon does an exceptional job in all aspects. Stall member always smiling and very friendly and helpful. She does an excellent job of making you feel so comfortable when you enter the office and very accommodating with needs and questions. The maintenance team always complete any repairs and leave everything clean and tidy. The location and grounds make you feel like resort living.

    We’ve lived at The Vista and sitill love it. What we currently love about our apartment is the view of the tiny yellow flowers outside our window. We feel like we live on the prairie! Last but most importantly the staff in the office and maintenance has always been amazing! ??
