We reviewed your comments today, and we apologize for your negative experience. We take pride in providing excellent customer service to our residents and work hard to ensure that all interactions with our residents are positive. We want to follow up with you in the effort of resolving any pest issues you or other residents may be having. We take these concerns very seriously and regret if you were made to feel otherwise. The DC area has seen an increase of activity with mice. This is due to the various construction projects happening in the city. We are especially vulnerable to this due to our community location. However we want to address this asap. Please contact us immediately so we may schedule an appointment with an exterminator and we can evaluate and treat you and neighbors homes immediately. Management is committed to making your living experience at the community an enjoyable one. Please feel free to contact us at 202-293-2000 or email us directly [email protected] Thank you.
