Of my 7 years of living in Longview, I've lived in at least 6 different apartment complexes. Without a doubt Summer Brook is the best! Everything is well kept up and taken care of. The residents are friendly, the maintenance is great and the staff in the office are fantastic. I would definitely recommend to anyone on the fence about living here.- Resident on Google Reviews
Although I've only lived at Summer Brook for 7 months, I can't imagine living at another apartment complex! I feel extremely safe, and the location is PERFECT. I'm just a few minutes away from everything and everyone in Longview!- Resident on Google Reviews
London has been an absolute joy to work with!! She listens to every single need, is so patient, if she doesn’t know the answer she’ll find it and get back with you ASAP. Morgan has helped me before at summer green, and I can’t wait to see how this team continues to transform this amazing living space. I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to live here. My family and I have been through so much, and this place and the amenities, the fair price, are all an answer to prayer.- Facebook Review
