Spring has sprung in Skagit Valley at the 34th Annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The festival is one of Washington’s most celebrated events and was included in National Geographic’s “Best Spring Trips” list.
Skagit Valley is located in Western Washington State, about 75 miles north of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, near Mount Vernon. This April, thousands of visitors will head to the festival to feast their eyes on millions of bulbs in bloom.
Agriculture is Skagit County’s number one industry. “More tulip, iris, and daffodil bulbs are produced here than in any other county in the U.S., and local farmers produce about $261 million worth of 90 different crops, livestock, and dairy products on 93,000 acres of land.”
You can enjoy Mother Nature’s spectacular display the entire month of April by driving, walking, or biking to the tulip fields. Guided tours are also available for a nominal fee. While blooming dates are not specified, the website does offer a bloom calendar, but as with all things in nature…show times are really up to her.
Events surrounding the festival include a wine festival, art festival, a children’s art table and a parade. There are also display gardens at Tulip Town and RoozenGaarde/Washington Bulb Company.
At Tulip Town, you can enjoy trolley rides, face painting and flying kites. Cut or potted tulips, gifts, and tulip-themed art are also available for purchase.
Whether you’re looking for an event the whole family can enjoy, or you’re seeking a great backdrop for a selfie, Skagit Valley Tulip Festival has a little something for everyone.
On February 22, 2017, The Washington Multi Family Housing Association (WMFHA) held their second annual Emerald Awards, honoring top performers in Property Management in Eastern Washington. We are proud to announce that Jessica Fowler received the prestigious and well-deserved “Community Manager of the Year” award in the 150-plus apartment homes category.
Nearly 300 attendees gathered at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, WA to honor their colleagues and peers. The festivities began with a reception, followed by a gourmet lunch and the awards program- all in the spirit of recognizing superior performance.
The role of Community Manager is a challenging and demanding role that requires intuitive multi-tasking, combined with excellent time management and a deep appreciation for our residents. At Weidner, we know our success depends on our best people, delivering their very best to our residents, and we couldn’t be more pleased to congratulate Jessica on her award.
Jessica Fowler started with Weidner Apartment Homes on Sept 2, 2012 in the Anchorage, Alaska region. Jessica began her career in property management as a multi-site Leasing Consultant at College View Apartment Homes (98 units) and Rancho Tudor Apartment Homes (60 units). Jessica loves interacting with residents and helping others and realized early that this was the industry for her. Jessica’s hard work paid off when she seized the opportunity to join the Weidner Apartment Homes Manager in Training program. As part of the Manager in Training program Jessica worked with an experienced multi-site manager & was directly responsible for Deer Park Apartment Homes (120 units) and Quiet Creek Apartment Homes (36 units). Based on her stellar performance in Weidner’s Manager in Training program, Jessica quickly graduated & was promoted to Community Director of Montclair Apartment Homes (48 units) and Driftwood Apartment Homes (40 units). In 2014 Weidner purchased Russian Jack Apartment Homes (136 units) and Jessica was selected to welcome the residents to the Weidner family. After successfully integrating Russian Jack Apartments into the Weidner management philosophy, Jessica relocated to Wenatchee, Washington where she took the reigns of Riverside 9 Apartment Homes. Riverside 9 gave Jessica the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of a new development & lease-up community. As a bonus, Jessica fell in love with the nearby mountains, rolling hills, and picturesque landscapes of Wenatchee and the Eastern Washington region. In her free time, you’ll find Jessica exploring & hiking with her pup Kenai or snowboarding at one of the nearby resorts. Jessica is an asset to the Weidner team and consistently goes above and beyond for her residents & teammates.

Let’s face it, for most adults, the last time we got to coast rent-free, was when we were still living at home with our parents. Our bedrooms became our carved-out corners of the world, where we grew in to ourselves and figured it all out. Of course rent was free! We were kids, after all. That’s just the way it is.
Then came the real world: adulthood, college, a job, family, responsibilities, and as it turns out – a roof and four walls doesn’t come for free. Shocking! Unless of course…

“Dean [Weidner] told me that Colorado Springs has a place in his heart, and once you come here you’ll want to come back,” said Vice President of Public Relations, Greg Cerbana. “We’ve chosen to have our Weidner brand represented here and merged with the Switchbacks, thanks to the dramatic growth of soccer and the Switchbacks being a family organization.”
Partnering now & for the future!
Our partnership with the Switchbacks began in 2016, during their third season as an official USL team. As our presence in Colorado Springs continues to grow with the openings of Elements at Briargate Apartment Homes and La Bella Vita Apartment Homes, it only made sense to strengthen our ties with this new Colorado Springs hallmark.
“We are very pleased and honored the whole Weidner Apartment Homes team, has chosen the Colorado Springs Switchbacks to tell the story of Weidner Apartment Homes,” said Switchbacks President Nick Ragain. He then went on to proclaim, “the Switchbacks Stadium would now be known as Weidner Field for the upcoming season and near future.”
Weidner Field was originally built in 1985 as a joint effort between the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the City of Colorado Springs. The Switchbacks are now in year three of their ten-year lease on the site.
“Our involvement with the Switchbacks has been important on many levels.” said Weidner’s Regional Vice President Robert Carr, a long-time resident of Colorado Springs. “Our sponsorship has provided the opportunity to increase our brand awareness in the Colorado Springs market in a fun and entertaining medium. Our partnership with the Switchbacks has given us a new way to interact with the larger Colorado Springs community in a very positive way.”
The Switchbacks will kick off their 2017 USL campaign at the Tulsa Roughnecks on March 25th before returning to Weidner Field for their home opener on April 1st against Oklahoma City Energy FC.
It is Valentine’s Day week. In keeping with romantic tradition, we thought about starting this blog off with a love poem about why Weidner Apartment Homes is a perfect match for those who seek a nurturing and happy relationship with their apartment. More than a mere trophy apartment, this is the ultimate, luxury dwelling that includes shiny bling like a gourmet kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and designer extras including vaulted ceilings with crown molding, a generous amount of living space to spend with friends and family, and sweeping views from your private balcony, which could possibly lead to great moments of inspiration.
The problem is, all of these amenities are difficult to organize in to one rhyming verse that covers everything. After all, Weidner manages and owns 244 properties across 9 states and Canada, representing 46,454 units, under the loving care of 1,400 employees. We did give the poem a try, however:
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Weidner created all this – just for you.
Yeah, we know. It doesn’t really cover it.
So we just decided to say a heartfelt thank you to our beloved residents, for the love you’ve shown us over the 40 years we’ve been providing quality apartment living.
We know the place you call home is extremely personal and important. It’s the place you build memories, plan for your future, and like all of us, experience a bounty of good, and a few challenges along the way. Whether you choose Weidner as your first one bedroom apartment out of college, or you need a two bedroom that’s close to the office, or you’re a newlywed couple and living with your parents is getting awkward – we’re thrilled to welcome you home.
Let’s try that poem again…
Roses are red. Violets are blue. What matters to you, matters to us!
This year, the Weidner Cares team decided to ring in 2017 by volunteering in one of our newest regions – Oklahoma! We had more than 35 team members from both Tulsa and Oklahoma City suit up in orange and volunteer for the day with Youth Services of Tulsa.
Youth Services of Tulsa’s mission is “To value and accept all youth, supporting and challenging them to embrace their potential.” The non-profit organization focuses on advocating for, and meeting the needs of at-risk youth; offer counseling, delinquency prevention, and programs for runaway and homeless youth. YST has been helping area youth and their families since 1969, and to date have assisted more than 300,000 youth in Tulsa and surrounding communities. Their vision, “Empowered Youth Who Grow and Achieve” is a cause Weidner is proud to align with.
Let the Work Begin!
Youth Services of Tulsa was gifted a beautiful facility near downtown Tulsa, equipped with a full shelter, a drop-in center, lounges, conference rooms, kitchens and offices. While this was a most generous gift, maintaining the building had its challenges. This is where the Weidner Cares team came in and helped with everything from painting to landscaping to restore and revive the facilities, allowing the organization to concentrate their efforts on helping Tulsa’s homeless youth.
We made more than 450 meal bags, sorted and donated 3 truckloads of clothing, painted and organized the interior of their shelter building, washed cars and windows, helped with some electrical and carpentry work, and even made some make-ready boxes for clients moving into new apartments.
The Weidner Cares team worked tirelessly to revitalize this facility, and now the staff, and their clients, have a little less to worry about this summer! Thank you so much to our Oklahoma team for making our first Weidner Cares of 2017 a shining success!
“Youth Services of Tulsa greatly appreciates the time and efforts that the employees of Weidner Apartment Homes spent volunteering on our campus. By taking the time to complete much needed projects, you have sent a powerful message to the youth we serve every day that Weidner Cares! Thank you for sharing your time, talents and resources. You have made a positive difference in the lives of Tulsa’s youth.” -David C. Grewe, LCSW Executive Director- Youth Services of Tulsa
You’re very welcome, Mr. Grewe, and Youth Services of Tulsa. Judging from the bright smiles on the faces of our team, the pleasure was all ours! Thank you for the work you do in the community of Tulsa and beyond.
It might be Awards Season in Hollywood, but we’ve got an announcement of our own at Weidner:
Reyna Perez is our Featured Associate Spotlight winner!
Reyna started with Weidner as a Leasing Consultant at Castlepark in February of 2014 and since then, her positive, can-do attitude has made her a superstar in our California region. Her hard work paid off this past February, when she was promoted to Assistant Community Director at a new acquisition: Artisan at Main Street Metro.
“Reyna never looks at any task as being outside her job description and is always the first to volunteer to help out her teammates,” said Cindy Schwartz, Area Director in California. “Reyna’s positive attitude is infectious, making her a great leader. She makes it her goal to have a positive impact on every individual she encounters throughout the day, and residents take notice and appreciate this admirable quality!”
Reyna’s favorite part of her job as an Assistant Community Director is interacting with her residents, and being able to go that extra mile to help out. She attributes her success to thinking and speaking with a positive attitude and persevering through tough times. “I’ve been through a lot with the acquisition,” says Reyna, “and I’ve never said ‘I’m done.’ There’s no stopping me!”
At Castlepark, Reyna maintained a 44% closing ratio, one of the highest recorded at the community, earning the title of “Leasing Superstar” several times while working at the property. Since accepting the role of Assistant Community Director at Artisan, Reyna has helped to increase their occupancy by over 5%.
“Reyna’s consistent, positive attitude sets her apart, as well as her caring and friendly demeanor,” said Mandy Urfer, Community Director at Artisan. “Prospects and residents draw close to Reyna because she truly cares about each and every one of them. She has a big heart and goes above and beyond for everyone.”
Mandy also remembers a time when a resident was upset about their broken washer, and wanted it to be replaced immediately. Maintenance was short staffed that day, so Reyna took off her heels, rolled up her sleeves, and helped maintenance move the washer out of the resident’s apartment and replace it with a new one. “I was in awe of her that day as I learned of what she had done,” said Mandy.
Reyna has five children, ranging in age from 6 to 16. She enjoys cooking and spending quality time with her family. When she’s not busy with her own family, Reyna can usually be found helping out her extended family of friends, coworkers and residents.
Reyna’s infectious, positive attitude is a shining example of what we mean when we say:
“What matters to you, matters to us.”
From the Weidner team – thank you for being you, Reyna! Congratulations!
