    Management really makes sure the building, units, and those who are leasing needs are met. The property inside and out is clean and well managed. management communicates in a good time frame. Great properties if you're a muliti-family or single. The apartment is spacious, there's a balcony, enough parking space, and great upkeep inside and out.
