    5/5 Happy M. on Mar 11, 2020

    I am divorced and I’m on a fixed income and looking for a place to live, I have been all over Macomb and I have not been impressed or have been taken seriously as I have by Bree Powers at Lakeside Village. I have been approved and I am on the waiting list, after all of Bree’s help I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. She explained everything thoroughly and was very professional as well as compassionate and understanding. I am looking forward into joining the Lakeside community and I am forever grateful to Bree for all her help.
