            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 Abby.price@paragonapts.com

                    Badest place ever stayed. Full of liars in here. Nothing works. Just chasing after cash leaving their jobs behind. I do not recommend to anyone seriously. no internet. Malfunctioning laundry machines. Weed smells all day long. The office people are just clueless.useless.

                            I rented here believing that 'under new management' meant that the problems previously reported in negative reviews wouldn't be applicable months later after many management changes. I was wrong. Although office workers have changed 4-5 times throughout the time I have lived at the Metropolitan,… See More>
