Local Reviews

The nearby elementary school creates a center piece for families to grow up in. Most homes have seen generations luve in them and not knowing your neighbors is very rare

Families tend to stay for a long time. There are schools of all grades nearby and businesses. The neighborhoods are also closed off which makes me feel a lot safer.

Cheap tuition.I like bars. I go to bars with my friends on weekends. Sometimes you bring your family

My neighborhood is nestled conveniently next to a shopping center. And from my apartment view, I have amazing vegetation and hills. The maintenance crew, also comes quick to fix whatever problem there is at hand.

In my neighborhood I am near two freeways which makes it easier to get where I'm going. I also live close to other family members.

It's a quiet neighborhood. It feels like a small town. I feel safe going for runs through the streets. There is a park nearby with tennis courts.
