    Love living here and a good place close enough to work.

    5/5 Anonymous on Apr 7, 2022

    Home since 2019 and since new owners it has been very comfortable to live in. Maintenance is always on top on things and emergency requests. Neighbors are always friendly and keep to themselves. It’s a great place to live and close to freeway. Very convenient to kids schools. Thanks.
