When the team at Arcadia at Parkway Village (Fairburn, GA) noticed there was trash and litter building up in the wooded area near the fenceline behind one of the buildings, they didn’t hesitate to take action. Property Manager Mattie Pruitt and her staff (Assistant Property Manager Lesha Cook, Maintenance Supervisor Joshua “Ty” Widner, and Maintenance Technician Joshua Furgerson) scheduled an afternoon to tackle the problem together. So, when the scheduled day came, the team changed into their “cleaning” clothes and marched into the woods. In a couple of hours, they had gathered over 20 bags of trash. It was a true example of what can be accomplished when a team comes together for a common goal. “I am so proud to be able to work with such caring individuals as the Arcadia team,” said Regional Vice President Jake Seames. “They are a perfect example of what teamwork is about at Ambling.”
To encourage their residents to pay rent on time and avoid late fees, Park Ridge holds an “Early Bird” contest each month. Each resident who pays their rent on or before the 5th of the month is entered into a drawing to win a gift card to a local restaurant. The residents love it, and the property has seen a definite drop in the number of late payments each month. In addition to the contest, having Park Trace Property Manager Lisa Moorman filling in as the temporary property manager has been key to getting rents in on time as well!
Residents at The Park at Kirkstall Apartments (Houston, TX) were the benefactors of an informative credit counseling in-service put on by Property Manager Jennifer Stapleton and her staff in March. Three financial planners came out to help the residents with money issues such as credit repair, the importance of having good credit, using credit wisely and much more. Jennifer puts on these types of educational talks often, and the residents are very appreciative. What a great way to engage with the residents, help them learn some valuable information, and bring positive public relations to the property.
Heritage Crossing Apartments (Commerce, GA) had a great idea to not only spread cheer within their community and do something nice for their residents, but also provide a chance to bring even more color to their property this spring. Leasing Consultant Maegan Campbell decided to surprise each resident with a package of flower seeds, complete with soil and a small pot, at their door. The hope is that in a couple of weeks time, the flowers have bloomed and can be displayed on the patios and balconies of each apartment. An easy, cheap idea that provided a sense of community to Heritage Crossing, as well as a chance to bring even more beautiful colors this spring!
