Resident Testimonials


“The Kessler is a resident's dream.....every last detail has been planned and executed with excellence. The staff on every level has been hired and trained with hospitality in mind. They clearly love what they do and love doing it at The Kessler.

From the time we first took a tour of The Kessler until today, they have graciously walked us through every step of the process. On move-in day, the apartment was ready for us, including an amazing welcome gift. Any request, email or even just an idea is always answered and attended to in a timely manner. As residents, we feel cared for and valued every day and especially through our resident events such as Thirsty Third Thursday, Yappy Hour and our most recent pumpkin carving and chili cook off!

When we have a few minutes with nothing to do, you can find us at the lobby desk chatting with the friendliest leasing agents and management in town! We LOVE The Kessler!!”

“I want the staff to know how much I LOVE being here! And not just love it, I'm THANKFUL!! I appreciate everything about my living experience at The Kessler. The on-site team has created such a warm and welcoming community. I love my unit, the amenities, the staff (ALL staff) and all of the people whom I come into contact with here as residents.

My goal was to live at The Kessler for one year and figure out where to purchase my home but after being here since the beginning of July, I can't imagine why I wouldn't live here. All of the people who've visited me here locally and from out of town can't imagine why I would leave The Kessler, EVER! Thank you for making my transition from Portland, my "other" home, so amazing, safe and welcoming! This is my forever home! You guys rock!!”

“The Kessler has far exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled with our new home here. Our personal living space is outstanding; layout, cabinets, flooring, crown molding, appliances and more are top notch quality and thoughtfully designed. We are so proud to show our new apartment to friends and family and all are completely impressed as we continue to be with the beautiful and generous spaces throughout the property as well as the professional, personable staff.”

“Our experience to date has been positive. It's like living in a first rate resort and the park setting is an added bonus. The neighbors and staff have been exceptionally nice and very welcoming. We had a lot of misgivings, as moving from a 4 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment was quite a change, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that the apartment has plenty of space for our needs. The apartment is very comfortable and an enjoyable place to live. We feel that we made a good decision in moving to The Kessler.”

“My mother and I have been residents at The Kessler since July 2018. Our time here has truly been nothing short of incredible. The staff is friendly, helpful, and accessible. They consistently go above and beyond and also seem to work very well together as an upbeat, positive team that serves as an anchor to the community. We have been thrilled with the event planning and community engagement that the staff here has put so much work into. There are frequent community events (happy hours, chili contest, book clubs) and offerings (such as Saturday morning donuts, possibly the best automated coffee machine on the planet, a Halloween trick or treat center, etc.) that make living at The Kessler a true joy. We have had a wonderful time building community with our neighbors and with the staff.

Aside from the strong sense of community and connectivity among residents and staff of the building, the amenities are absolutely incredible. I have been a renter in the Kansas City area since 2012 and have a solid grasp on the other buildings and communities out there. Living on Meadowbrook Park is unbeatable. The gorgeous lake attracts unique bird species and we have also spotted foxes around the community. The many large, aging trees in the park are beautiful and give the community a feeling as if it is not a new development. Taking a couple of laps around the lake with my pets has become a daily delight: I have also very seriously acknowledged that life is best lived on a yard equivalent to a city park, rather than a tiny, fenced-in plot of grass. Thank you to whoever had the foresight to merge the two.

My personal favorite amenities are the gym and the pool. As a frequent exerciser, I have found the gym space ample, clean, well lit and well laid out. The new machines are the best quality; we even have a Peleton bike! The additional yoga room is a delightful place to stretch and warm up. The pool and courtyard are also next level: the waterfall keeps the space feeling zen even when many residents are out and about. Whoever does the landscaping here also did an incredible job on the courtyard in particular. There are also many lovely sitting areas and couches that make it easy for many groups the share the space at once, plenty of interesting trees and plants, and a beautiful trellised eating area. These are my favorite things about living at The Kessler, but I could go on. The finishes in our apartment are amazing as well, as are the high ceilings and large windows providing tons of natural light.

I fully support the building and staff members winning any and all the awards out there! I say that knowing that The Kessler is a special place that one does not find every day, or even in every city. As residents, we have been thrilled to join the community.”
