I just wanted to take a minute of your time to let you know what a great job your staff here at Park Lake does. I have lived here for 13 years and I have seen many changes along the way. The best change was when you (Carmel Partners) bought the property. The staff: Kelly, Lisa, Amy and Jose are all so helpful and friendly. They truly make it a pleasure to live here. Thanks to all of them, I call this place *Home!*
