Cecilio Davis did a fantastic job finding my partner and I the perfect apartment. He values and builds client relationships rather than jumping to a sale, and is extremely responsive. He knows that he has excellent apartments to offer and can walk first-time applicants through every step of the process. He really bent over backwards to ensure that we found our dream apartment, and we enjoyed working with him.

I used Metropolis for my rental, and dealt with Tom the President. The entire process was great from start to finish. Tom and his staff are true professionals, very patient and courteous. They were well informed and acquainted with the properties which make this an easy and great experience.

Tom was absolutely amazing to work with. He showed me a couple different apartments all of which were great. He was very patient with me as I made up my mind and was more than happy showing me a couple places multiple times. Everything was extremely easy and smooth. Would highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I had specific needs when looking for an apartment. We met Cecilio Davis to view a few apartments. After meeting, he was able to get a great understanding of our needs and wants. He was able to find us the perfect apartment! The lease signing process with Tom was very easy and painless. We would definitely recommend working with Metropolis again!

I am in a great new apartment through Metropolis Real Estate and I had no issues. Everything was very clear from the beginning and James showed me two places even though I fell in love with the first one, my apt now. James was great to work with and so helpful with everything, my many questions, checking up on us, and I can't say enough nice things. I would definitely recommend James.
