Looking for housing for my aunts and mother

Excellent building, staff, and especially the front desk lady. The manager Margo, was an excellent lady. Very professional, as well as informative. I took the tour alone with Margo, as I wanted to view the units before I brought my mom and aunts. I am looking for reasonable rents for the three of them to move into the same building. I wish the prices were a tad lower, If the rates per month are a little negotiable I will be moving all three of my relatives there. Thanks Margo, and all the staff that I had the please of meeting while touring the building and suites.

very nice

i loved the atmosphere, and will make the choice after I bring my mom and aunt in to take a look. we just narrowed the search down to two places. so the price of the one bedroom is a little high. but if they compare and give the same footage, and the same price at the other home they may get my business.
thanks
