The Ranch at Shadow Lake is an awesome place to live. I moved in about a month ago and have had nothing more than a pleasant experience. Not only is the location close to so many eateries and shopping places, but it is in an area that does not flood during severe rainy weather. I adore the layout of my 1 bedroom apartment. All of my neighbors are pleasant and the neighborhood surrounding the area in super quiet. Ms. Ayana in the leasing office is an angel. She was able to assist me with all my move in needs. She always follows up with any questions that I may have (whether it be by email or text). If anyone is looking for a place to call home, then these apartments should be on your list.


The staff and maintenance team at The Ranch have always gone above and beyond for me, particularly Imari, Enrique, Jose, and Raul. There are others in the office who have done so as well, which helped me feel safe and supported during Covid and the odd winter storm we just experienced. Imari and the ladies were always available to me for my questions and needs before moving in, returning any calls or emails promptly. They were so very friendly, welcoming & helpful when I visited the office. They’ve followed all Covid standards which puts me at ease as well. Any service requests I have are met promptly, including maintenance fixing my heat in the middle of the night in January, installing a new thermostat. Juan and Raul are the BEST! Imari and all the office staff are rockstars. The Ranch provided drinking water for us during the winter storm and always keep us informed via email on any updates, news, or extras in the community. They care—it is felt and greatly appreciated.


It’s a clean, quiet, and friendly neighborhood. The office staff is helpful & kind as well. The maintenance crew is awesome.
