It was a very pleasant experience the rental agent was very helpful and it was a very easy process. I work a lot and stay in another state so being able to do most of my application and rental process online really saved me.

            It started off good then went down hill after the 1st year. Paying for the upgrade version but issues with tile falling off the wall and cracked tub has soured me on this complex and I will not be renewing my lease next year.
