CLIMBS TO NUMBER ONE NATIONALLY
SatisFacts' Annual Customer Satisfaction Survey Gives H.G. Fenton Company High Praise

SAN DIEGO – H.G.

The high marks we received speak to the caliber of our employees and their daily efforts to provide responsive, personal service."

In addition to H.G. Fenton Company's overall portfolio achievement, its 254-unit luxury Aquatera apartment community earned a third place ranking in the 100-plus-unit category.

Aquatera includes a 10,300-square-foot clubhouse, resort-style pool, and much more. Residents also appreciate the eco-friendly appointments throughout the property's common areas.
