    I have just signed a lease for The Merc and have not moved in yet. I am looking forward to moving very soon.

    lived here for two years. location is ok; there is some rift raff around the area. not always safe to talk around at night. you really do get what you pay for if you can get some of the lower priced units; otherwise, it seems too expensive for what it is.

    I had a highly informative meeting/tour yesterday with Linh. She was welcoming and incredibly thorough in answering all my questions. In addition, she provided me with an indepth understanding of how to navigate the parking garage and showed me how to make a connection with all the essential perks and necessities that the place entails. She was constantly warm and patient and personalized her approach. She is a welcome addition to your organization and in this decision, she indeed played a role. I'm so happy I chose 28 Austin for my future residence.

    Extremely satisfied with the entire staff. Always received an immediate response to any issue or request. Weberson has to be the very best maintenance man there is and the office staff is great too .
