What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Allen

I like that a few places that I normally go are so close such as the nail salon, a seven eleven, and my audiologist.

Great school and excellent police department. Favorite resturant is Two Rows and Walmart is very close. Nice parks and restaurants to take family and friends too.

I love that I can walk to the grocery store. I wish there was a coffee shop. I enjoy family walks and bike rides on the nearby trail

My neighborhood is very kid & pet friendly. I always see families walking their pets or just walking together as a family.

It is near some restaurants and convienance stores. Close to a laundromat to do laundry. Friendly people in the area.

Friends and family plus's the neighbor plus's every one is so respectful and Christian people treat you like family
