    Great place

    5/5 Anonymous on Apr 12, 2019

    I put a request in for a fruit bowl on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning there was a huge fruit bowl filled with all kinds of organic fruit. The management (Marisa and McKenzie) genuinely care and always are on their A game. They even remembered my name even though I didn't sign it on the request- to me that means a lot. Us tenants are lucky to have them are so is Walnut Capital.

    I'm going on my 3rd year in a row living at WoH and there's truly nowhere else I'd rather be. It can be scary and intimidating when you start the apartment hunting process, but Walnut Capital takes those pains away! I've been so happy from day one with the level of professionalism and genuine care they have for their residents. The building is safe, clean, beautifully decorated, filled with friendly staff, loaded with awesome amenities, located steps away from all the great restaurants and grocery stores -- and they also plan monthly events for the residents. I'm grateful to call this place my home!
