Review ofTruewood by Merrill, Riverchase
4.2

Since covid maintenance is not working at all. I would just advise to be aware. There are a lot of promises made but there is not as much follow through. This is mainly with maintenance and the urgency to respond to the request. My mom is with nice people but all they talk about is all of the issues but she is happy and that's what matters.
