    I have lived here for 6 years. I really appreciate how responsive WC Smith has been with maintenance requests. This is a dignified place to live for a very good price in an amazing location. I feel safe here. Thanks for giving me such a great home.

    I should be surprised that about a dozen of DC’s top landlord companies are suspected of colluding with a software company in order to inorganically force their residents into an 8% rent increase despite it supposedly being a rent controlled region. But I have developed a tougher, calloused-over heart in recent years and for that, I have DC to thank.

    Great staff in the rental office and my only negative concerns are with maintenance for not always completing a request in a timely manner, sometimes they don't even show up and you have to put in a second work ticket. We also had pretty noisy neighbors unfortunately.
