‘Guest Blog’ with Scott Yahraus: Stimulus Package for your Complex
June 16, 2009
From the article –
In this month’s issue of Multi-Housing News, Christy Freeland, CEO of Riverstone Residential said, “We know that people like to be social, so we’re offering things like movie and game nights, or bringing in guest speakers on topics like physical fitness. We’re not having to spend a lot of money on those things, but it’s the idea of providing a sense of community that will keep residents around longer.” (MHN, June 2009, pg. 13)
I could not agree more with Freeland. Your residents are your customers, so it is wise that you treat them well. To me, this means going above and beyond giving them a clean and safe place to live. Goodwill goes a tremendously long way.
ABOVE AND BEYOND A CLEAN SAFE PLACE TO LIVE??? Not Jefferson Lakes Apartments in Baton Rouge, LA managed by Riverstone Residential. The mold infestation there is unbelievable. In fact, I have heard it described as one of the worst ever seen after testing results. Yes, I’m sure some cheap entertainment is just what their “customers” need. katy
