“It is so nice to have the NEW staff in the building. When your landlord shares your space it creates a unique relationship. I like having names and faces together and it’s nice to be able to walk down the hall to ask a question or report a problem. It also creates a community feeling that your in it with us. If there is a building problem your dealing with it each day too so we know our doing all you can to fix it ASAP.” – Heather Brescol – KingCare
