What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Montrose

I am close to white oaks shopping area. All kinds of stores and restaurants are close by. I like going there because of the wide variety of things to do and eat.

I love the security system. Favorite business is my friend's business which haven't started yet. I like staying home to hang out with friends/family.

There are great neighbors. I have awesome neighbors and great homes. The are a good assortment of restaurants. The yards are very well kept.

My favorite place to go that is near my neighborhood is a strip mall called white oak. It is very open and safe, and also have a lot of activities.

I like the access to many grocery stores and pharmacies near where I live. It is very convenient to have stores around you that you can drive to in less than 10 minutes.
