He was great and very relatable, he explained things very clearly for me and my boyfriend, it’s our first time living on our own and Zach made it 10x more easier and more understanding when it comes to moving out. Also everything is up to date and very much worth the price, and from i what I looked at everything seemed very clean and organized. But Zach was great hopefully we will be a resident there soon!!!Response from the ownerHi Danaja, Thanks for the great review! It's feedback like yours that reminds us why we do what we do.

Erika JohnsonErika Johnson ★★★★★ 1. I had to move here very quickly to leave a situation with my ex husband. I was out of state when having to communicate information and leasing the apartment so it would be ready when I returned. Everything was incredibly simple, Tatiana in the office was awesome at responding to my many emails with kindness and all the details I needed to feel comfortable signing from miles away.2. The first few days I experience a bad leak from my washer flooding my closest late at night. The emergency line was very responsive. Nick couldnt make it out but immediately sent a plumber to assess the situation and snake it to see if this resolved the issue. But when it kept happening it was like I had the entire maintenance team on my side, bringing tools that next week and looking at all the piping. They were in and out and gave me a detailed reason for why it was happening and when theyd get back to fix it for good. A BIG thank you to Mikey!! Who came back with everything I needed to repair the pipes that next day. He was very kind. He made me feel comfortable and he took his time repairing everything. The problem hasnt occured since, quality work. He also cleaned up after himself which I really appreciate because the original plumber that was sent out to snake it initially left a huge nasty mess.3. I initially came to the community with nothing but an air mattress some clothes and my dog. When I started to retrieve my furniture and boxes of household decor and goods, Mikey was again very helpful and accomodating to me and the people helping me move. He saw us on a few occasions hauling boxes and large items and offered to help move it and he helped me mount a few this that I didnt have the tools or the know-how to accomplish. On my walks with my dog I have seen him extend this kindness to others as well. This is a guy who will go out of his way for people in this community when he sees a need.Thank you to Mikey, and the aqua staff as a whole for giving me a safe place to land and making the transition just sooo much easier than I thought it would be!!!Response from the ownerGreetings Erika, Thanks for the kind words! It's great to know that we were able to provide you with the highest levels of service. We truly value your recommendation, and are confident we can continue to provide excellent service in the future. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
