I had a great experience! I was able to access information about several apartments. Luckily they kept matching me with one place in particular. Once I saw it I fell in love with it. From the layout to the location.

The staff at The Lakes are above and beyond expectations. Nakeshia was awesome and answered all my questions. She even entertained my 2 year old while I was signing our lease. I'm happy to have found a home here at The Lakes.

Not good, I am not a satisfied tenant. I'm really not that hard to please, I don't like to complain but when you've been requesting a simple repair for almost 3 months-dissatisfied is an understatement.
