Dear Verified Resident, We are all very happy to hear that you are pleased with our current staff at The Met. I completely understand if you have already made arrangements to move but I would like to speak with you further to discuss your neighbors. Can you call or email the office today? I would like to get more details about the neighbors so we can address the current issues you are dealing with. I appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. I hope that after we discuss and rectify the issues with your neighbor you might consider signing another lease at The Met. Thanks again for being a great resident at The Met and I look forward to speaking with you soon. 618-549-1332 Abby Price Manager [email protected]
