The video testimonials are currently available on Oakwood Common's new website at

"While we welcome and encourage prospective residents and family members to take personalized tours of our apartments, dining room, bistro café, social areas and other amenities, they develop a great appreciation of what Oakwood Common offers when they talk with residents and staff," said Mary Granata, manager of sales. "Our residents are truly our best ambassadors."

Granata shared that what residents consider as special amenities vary widely depending on personal interests, tastes and active lifestyles. These include the underground parking garage, private balconies and outdoor patios, walk-in showers, a washer and dryer in each apartment, fitness classes, billiard room, wood shop and more.

"It's when you hear them tell their own reasons for selecting Oakwood Common that you appreciate the differences," added Granata. "And they are not a bit shy on camera."

The video testimonials were also created to help Oakwood Common website visitors, including family members and friends who live across the country, receive a glimpse of how residents feel about their community.
