One Size Does Not Fit All

Why are there so many flavors of ice cream? Hmmm…

 Another question: Why are there so many available toppings and options of delivery in a cup, or a cone, or through a straw?

 My thought is the many flavors, toppings, and options satisfy the varying desires of unique people. Ice cream makers realized that plain old vanilla did not work for every palette. Chocolate, though dear to our hearts, I hate to burst the velvety brown bubble, but not all tasty treats include you. Peach flavored ice cream fits in a medium cup just as well as pistachio!

 Very much like the varied hankerings people have for desserts and toppings – and the size they order – the people who lease here at Town Place Apartments have varied needs and desires for the place they live. Fortunately for us, we have five floor plans to suit their needs and two styles to boot.

 When people visit us to learn about the property we ask questions – lots of questions. We are trying to learn what the specific requirements are, what things are crucial and those that are not, what floor level is preferred, and many other particulars. Hey, we’re matchmakers – we need to dive deep and ask these things!

 I have found similarities in people’s apartment home needs, such as the reasons a certain floor level is preferred. I also continue to hear new reasons that this location in Middletown is desired. One of the first items to narrow the search is, "How many bedrooms do you need?" At times the answer is very clearly defined as, "One". Excellent! We have two sizes for one bedroom apartments. Other times the answer could be, "Oh, two or three. We would like a guest area for when family visits and perhaps a home office." Fantastic! We have two floor plans for two bedroom apartments and one for three.

 Well, I don’t actually sound that cheesy in my responses, but the level of excitement is there behind the quiet smile. It is satisfying to match people with their needs for apartment living. Because it is very apparent that one size does not fit all, it is nice that we aren’t just plain old vanilla ice cream and Town Place offers apartment sizes that meet the desires of those we encounter.

 Think the manager would notice if I clocked out early? I seem to have a craving for coffee ice cream…

 

Make Yourself at Home

Friday, 02 August 2013 19:07

I have house envy.

 

As I walk Ridgewood Road with the intention of physical exercise, my senses are teased with the sights and sounds of families working in their yards and relaxing on their porches. The places they call home distract me from my temporary disconnect from the world, yet really invite me to a world I would like to join.

 

My nostrils detect a steak or some other delightful meat smoking on the grill, and it begs of my desires to fulfill them. I walk past the homes with food aromas and I think, "I would like to have a house that others walk by and feel like it is a reminder of home." Even the smell of laundry expelled from the vent creates a feeling of home for me. It doesn’t matter that it is not mine; it matters that it makes me feel good.

 

I would love to have a house to call a home. I would love to be the house you walk by and the activities you see, the scent wafting the air, the sounds you hear – create a sense of comfort.

 

At the end of my walk I take the right turn into the first driveway of Town Place, the one near Building 4. I soon recognize that "home" is emanating from the windows and balconies of this apartment complex. I smell food cooking – and at times I fight the urge to tap on the door for samples! I see residents chatting as dogs are walked. I hear laughter and conversations, just like the homes on Ridgewood Road.

 

Town Place, regardless of the multi-family structure, is home. It is home because it is what we make it – and our residents create the environment of home many times over, with the variety of creature comforts that speak home to them.

 

I am somewhat ashamed to admit, but when I first started working at Town Place it merely was an apartment community. In retrospect, I was offering to apartment seekers some walls and a parking space. After moving here recently, I see this multi-family community much differently, and I believe it has helped me to present this place, Town Place, as the home it has potential of becoming – not four walls void of the human element.

 

I still have the goal of purchasing a home, undoubtedly true. I still want to be the house you walk by and feel like you could walk up and make yourself at home. In the meantime, home is what you make of it. In the meantime, Town Place joins the houses of Ridgewood Road as setting the standard to which my future house becomes my home.
