      Shady, Unethical management practices.

                                Hello, First, I appreciate your coming in and discussing this review in person as well as the opportunity to discuss the issues you have had with your mom. As we discussed in our conversations, the Front Desk team only knocks on doors when they have received noise complaints from other residents. In your case, there were eight noise complaints reported by your neighbors in the first twelve weeks of 2019. In addition to reports of excessive volume, there were also reports of strong smells of marijuana smoke coming from your unit. As you know, the smell of marijuana is strong and does not remain contained to just one unit. As such, when it is smoked in an apartment building it affects many residents. Of course smoking in your apartment, of any kind, is strictly prohibited both by your lease agreement and by the City of Chicago's Clean Air ordinance. The management team appreciates your commitment to moving forward in a way that is in alignment with community living. Provided that there are no more reports of smoking and/or excessive noise in your units, we look forward to you living our the duration of your lease agreement in our community. We also appreciate your offer to remove this review, and the opportunity to respond to it. Sincerely, Jackie Pingel Property Manager
