I have almost lived here at Parkside Apts for a year. It is a year that has gone by so quickly, that I hardly believe it’s been that long. From the day I moved in, I knew this place was going to be different than other apts I had lived at. The first thing that I thought was a very nice touch was the pizza in the freezer, 2 liter of pop in fridge and the pizza cutter on the counter with a note from Parkside welcoming me to my new place. What a thoughtful touch. My last apt they gave me a chip holder. What a world of difference! Let me back up a bit. I’m in a wheelchair and so the apt I was viewing was a handicapped accessible one.There were a few things that could have been adjusted to make life a little easier. Even by the time I moved in, they had already taken care of these. It was the same with the move in checklist. There wasn’t anything major on there, so I figured if they got around to it in a week or so, that would be fine. That’s what I had come to expect from the different places I had lived. No, they were there the day after I moved in and took care of everything!
Their attention to making sure that everything is fixed in a timely manner and the cleanliness of their building is unbelievable. As I had mentioned, I’m in a wheelchair. Well, each time we’ve had a snowfall, I can’t believe how quick and the number of times they have been out there shoveling and putting ice melt down. Even at 1 in the morning! It sure makes my life easier. The last place I lived, which I’d like to mention was a senior complex, took them at least a couple of days before they would shovel.
I most definitely also need to mention the office staff, maintenience staff, and everyone employed here at Parkside. They are the most FRIENDLIEST, HELPFUL, and CARING staff that you will ever meet. All of them are always willing to go that extra mile to make sure that whatever you are in need of, that it’s taken care of. Much KUDOS to all of you. The last thing I feel needs to be mentioned is the activities that Parkside has put on. For a complex this size to provide food at their bbqs they have done is unbelievable. They also have promoted some very good charitable events including being a drop site for toys for tots and a drive to collect school supplies for underprivileged kids among numerous other things. I could sit here and continue to list more of what has made this such a great place to live, but it would go on forever. I truly hope the staff win a free lunch, for that is the least of what they deserve for all their effort and hard work that they put into every day. I hope that there are more of you that take the time, even if it’s just a few minute blurb, to tell your great experiences also, cause I know that there are more of you out there that feel the way I do. All I know is that I look forward to many more happy years here at Parkside. Thank you for all that you do in allowing me to call this place home.
