Apartment Etiquette: Getting A Good Night’s Sleep

September 25, 2014 8:58 am

Everyone loves a good night’s sleep. As someone living with neighbors there are some very simple things you can do to be a good night time neighbor and make sure everyone gets their time with the Sandman!

  1. Be considerate of your neighbors
  2. Avoid Yelling & Loud Talking
  3. Keep Conversations INSIDE Your Apartment (not outside your neighbors door or neighbors windows, not out in the parking lot, people live next to the parking lot).
  4. If you live upstairs, try to avoid the squeaky area or stomping, please don’t put speakers on the floor . If you are a large person, try to get a downstairs apartment.
  5. We know that you have great taste in Music, but EASY ON THE “BASS” (BASS frequencies pass thru walls more than any other frequencies, Turn Down The Bass Please). Better yet . . .
  6. GET SOME HEADPHONES for your Stereo. Headphones sound better. You can cook while wearing them. You can dance while wearing them. You can do Yoga while wearing them
  7. You can get a “Y” cord or split adapter from Radio Shack so you can plug in 2 sets of Headphones at the same time. They also have long extensions for headphones.
  8. Most TV’s now have sound plugs so you can plug the TV sound into the Stereo and watch TV using your Headphones
  9. Portable CD Players or iPods are real cool… Music can really make your day or night
  10. CAR STEREO?  Please don’t play it in the parking lot!
  11. Kids need a place to have fun. Kids are people too, find more peaceful activities for kids or think about bringing them to a park where they can let off steam.
  12. If you encounter anyone making LOTS OF NOISE, try to be understanding, in a friendly manner, and try to explain calmly that you are trying to sleep. We have all been noisy people in the past, so being friendly is the best way to call attention to the problem.

After The Fire

April 10, 2014 5:09 pm

We were unfortunate enough to have a fire in one of our apartment communities. It is incredibly important that we are all vigilant in protecting ourselves and our neighbors from damage to both our physical health and emotional health when we live in such close proximity.

Please be careful. This is what can happen if you leave your stove unattended for even a short period of time:

For those of you effected by the fire,  here is some important information on how to get help if you need it.

Tomorrow we will be posting a refresher on fire safety for all tenants to review for their own safety and that of their neighbors.

We are here to help all of you effected by the fire. Please let us know if there is more that we could be doing.

Thanks For The Great Reviews!

I’ve lived at Sela for 15 years and I have never had any problems with anything. Maintenance is always on time and very professional. – Molly A.

I have lived at Southwirth for over a year, and we have had nothing but great service and excellent management here. Kate takes great care of us, and John is an awesome and courteous maintenance man.

Twin Cities #3 On HuffPo’s Happiest, Healthiest Metros!

September 5, 2013 4:35 pm

We are pretty proud to live in the Twin Cities, but it is always nice to be acknowledged as  a great place to live! Today, in the Huffington Post, the metro area was number three on the list of its’ “Happiest, Healthiest Cities” – only being topped by San Jose, CA and Salt Lake City, UT.

It seems that our healthy lifestyles are paying dividends in making the Cities a great place to live and be healthy:

It’s not the rustic Nordic diet that catapulted the Twin Cities to heart-healthy superstardom. Credit city planners, local doctors, and area hospitals — and it’s been decades in the making. “It’s part of the fabric of our work here,” says Courtney Jordan Baechler, M.D., a cardiologist at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing. “People have spent decades boosting heart health by making the area more bikeable, for example, and offering cholesterol and blood pressure screenings to everyone.”

Minneapolis Tops NerdWallet’s Best City For Recreation List!

August 14, 2013 5:12 pm

Okay, we love Minneapolis, but it is nice for the city to be acknowleged as the best place for recreation in the US. St. Paul came in third (falling short of Portland, OR). In both summer and winter, both cities provide almost limitless activities for its’ residents.

Congratulations to both cities!

 

From NerdWallet:

Minneapolis offers a bounty of recreational opportunities. You can lace up your ice skates and hit the ice at The Depot, an indoor skating rink inside a restored railroad depot. Avid skateboarders can check out the six skate parks in Minneapolis, while golfers can tee up on one of seven courses. There are even disc golf courses for Frisbee fans! Hiking, biking and skiing trails can be found at Fort Snelling State Park, an historic military site. Whether you’re looking to start a fall sports league or go camping for the weekend, Minneapolis has the perfect accommodations. The University of Minnesota runs youth programs for area children, as well.
