"I have been a resident at Metowers almost four years. I love my apartment and I feel very comfortable and safe. The most important part of being a resident is the tremendous job that is being handled by the office personnel, the maintenance staff and the service coordinator. They are the best and are here for all the residents no matter what situation arises. My family and friends are also happy for me that I live in an environment where they do not have to worry about me."
