Due to limited spaces in some areas, we focus on resident parking as our first priority to ensure everyone that calls our community home is able to park.

                                      Revel is a really great place to live. The building is new, very well managed, and the location is perfect. Any maintenance requests are answer very quickly, the grounds are well maintained, and there is minimal turnover with the management team.

                                        The property manager and maintenance are better than any I've experienced before. They take the time to get to know people and go above and beyond to make living here enjoyable. Everyone on the team is exceptional.

                                          I have had an overall positive experience living at this property. The community is quiet however there are also activities in which to get involved and meet others. There is a good mix of activity and quiet.
