I came from a community that was always changing management, and when I went to the front office they didn't even know if I was an applicant or a current resident. Then I nearly got whiplash when I came here. Daniel Fairbanks was our leasing consultant and his customer service and knowledge of the community was a complete 180 from where I came from. He's always smiling and makes certain you are 100% satisfied. If you have any questions or concerns, you know you can count him to make sure your home is beyond your expectations. I like that I can walk into the front office and he not only knows that I'm a resident but knows my name. If any of my friends are looking for a place to move, I'm definitely passing along Daniel's contact information.

This has been a wonderful apartment. The walls are thick, and I did not hear my neighbors at all, not even the ones above me. All the appliances are good quality: oven, stove, refrigerator, and microwave, and I especially love the washer/dryer in my unit, which has been very convenient. The grounds are well-maintained with pretty colorful flowers and kept very clean. The underground parking is very safe, and the elevators are large and convenient. Most of all, I love the convenience of paying my rent online and automatically. I travel often, so this is important. If I have problems, I open a trouble ticket online with the system, and there is a service level agreement to resolve all my issues within 24 hours. Archstone/Equity has provided excellent service!
