“We've been renting a house from Graystone Management for almost 4 years now. Everyone at the company is very dedicated to what they do, and they treat you like family. Anytime we've had an issue, they've responded immediately. They come out themselves instead of hiring a contractor, so you know that things will get done right away and will be done right. For example, the handle came off of our faucet, and they replaced the whole thing for us. They also come out twice a year to make sure that the house is prepared for the changing seasons, and they leave little gifts around the holidays. Our neighbor is an older woman who has been with them for a long time, so they've done nice things for her like paint her garage, upgrade her flooring, etc. And in all of our time with them, they've only raised our rent $10 - not $10 per year, $10 total. We have nothing but good things to say about Vicki, John, and everyone at Graystone."
