Resident Satisfaction Survey

By now you should have received an e-mail asking you to fill out a resident satisfaction survey.

If you have completed the survey, know that we really value your input.

If you deleted the e-mail, it’s time to start digging through your deleted folder because there are big prizes at stake!

When you complete the survey, you are automatically in the running for several prize drawings.

We will be drawing weekly winners, who will win $25 Phoenix Bookstore vouchers, and one overall winner, who will win a Kindle Fire HDX.

In addition to those drawings, whichever building has the highest return percentage will win an evening of free games and refreshments in the Phoenix Club. The winning building would have access to the pool tables, table tennis, Wii, Xbox1, and air hockey.
