“I rented from John Rees, Sr. and his son John Aaron Rees, Jr. for 8 years. John Aaron is a sweet, intelligent, caring young man and he never hesitates to let you know that he cares. John Sr. stays busy with his properties so you don’t see him very often. But, John Aaron Rees Jr. makes sure to stop by your shop when he comes to a building you rent and says hi. He always made me feel like he cared for me. In fact, they cared so much about my well-being when my illnesses took their toll they showed great compassion when I could no longer lease from them and showed great understanding.”
