B&H is fairly new to us, but so far that I can see, they are doing an excellent job. WOW…you talk about customer service!!! I cannot believe how quickly these ladies get back to me if I have a question and making sure that I understand what they or I needed or wanted. I am looking forward to our continued partnership as time goes on. Thanks Bluestone & Hockley for doing an amazing job!

Your maintenance department fixed issues in my bathroom left by the last maintenance company. The tech was kind, explained the work he had done, and even asked to cover his shoes before entering. Overall it was a very professional job. Thank you!

Meg, Residential Tenant


Dan was very respectful and explained everything he was going to do before he did it. He also finished faster than he said he would and left the area cleaner than before.

John, Residential Tenant
