Providing our residents with a home that is enjoyable and valuable is a priority for BRE Properties, Inc. and Cortesia at Rancho Santa Margarita. We certainly regret that this has not been your experience. We regret that the available parking spaces are limited. Not knowing whether or not there will be a convenient space for you or your guests to park their car can be a frustrating experience. Parking strategies at our communities change frequently as a result of the current conditions and challenges. Additionally, we certainly apologize for any negative experiences you had when working with the onsite associates. We strive to provide our residents with excellent customer service and regret that this was not your experience. We work hard to continue to improve our commitment to excellent customer service and therefore greatly appreciate your feedback.
