Fall In Love with Our Maintenance Team!

Roxalana Hills Maintenance TeamIf you ask our residents what they love most about living at Roxalana Hills Apartments many will tell you it’s our wonderful maintenance team! Here at Roxalana Hills Apartments our main focus is customer service and making sure our residents are taken care of, which includes apartment maintenance. Our maintenance team’s main priority is to solve any obstacle in a thorough and speedy manner.

Whether it is a clogged drain, burned out lightbulb or a jammed patio door, our team members are on the job within the day. Unlike regular maintenance technicians that require you to take off work and let them in your house, with your permission, our team can make a service call while you carry on with your day. Our technicians bring card to leave at your door after each call. This allows our residents to know when a member has stopped in and explains how they have resolved the concern.

There is also no need to worry about after hours calls. With our 24-hour emergency maintenance we always have a team member on call to help with lock-outs and other urgent service requests.

Praise for Roxalana’s maintenance crew

I want to thank your maintenance crew for doing such a great job with the snow we received on February 16. I had to work and came home during the worst part of the day and they had been out in horrible conditions. My car wouldn’t make the whole climb up the hill and one of the guys driving the snow plow got out and threw kitty litter under my tires to help me make it home safely. A second guy joined him and I really want to say thank you to them. They deserve exra pay for the day. I have lived in my apartment for almost 2 years and have a few problems with heat/ac and your guys are always there to fix it in no time at all. People have asked me how I like living there and I always say I love it. If something happens I call and get help in minutes. Thanks to your maintenance again.

Happy Thanksgiving- Office closed for the holiday

It’s one week until Thanksgiving! The staff of Roxalana Hills Apartments wants to wish everyone a fabulous and safe Thanksgiving. We also want to remind everyone that our office will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 27. We will resume normal business hours on Friday, November 28.

Dear Parents of Roxalana Hills Apartments

On Saturday afternoon, I was doing some work on my computer… with my windows open, enjoying the cool and sunny November day.

I heard noises, and voices on the basketball court.  I live in the building below the basketball and tennis courts, and often hear when people are playing.

I noticed there were just a couple kids, throwing the ball around, and calling to passing kids… trying to get a real game going.  Well after a few minutes, they had 8-9 kids playing.

Their playing was going on for at least an hour, and I could hear the ball bouncing and scores being called out the whole time.  I actually found myself startled. I had to sit and write this note, I had to let you know what is happening when you are not watching.

I heard laughing, chatter, cheering… and at one point I heard some language that stunned me.  One of the kids said, “What the heck!”. And the game continued…all of the kids playing together… sharing the ball… cheering for their team, and really playing all together.

There was no bullying.  No adult language.  No anger.  No sitting on the sidelines playing a handheld video game.

It was children, being children.

I have no children of my own, I am 49 and have been scared/sad for our future for a number of years because of what I see in so many children these days.  But here, in Dunbar West Virginia there was a group of kids having fun, working together, being kind to each other, and obviously they learned this at home.

I just wanted you to know that when your backs are turned, and you are hoping your children are safe and being good human beings…from what I can see…you can rest easy.

Thank you for making me feel better about our world’s future.

Dirty Girl Mud Run

On April 6, 2013, our manager Summer lead a team of “Roxie Girls” at the West Virginia leg of the Dirty Girl Mud Run, including Jamie Douglas, Janet Taylor, Nancy Anderson, Tina Young, and Maggie Martinez.

Dirty Girl was founded in 2010 and held events in Wisconsin, New York and Colorado in 2011.The Dirty Girl Mud Run Series is expanding across the nation in 2013! Females ages 14 and up complete a 5K obstacle course consisting of a series of difficult, but manageable, tasks including wall climbs, stomach crawls, cargo net climbs, tire tests and conclude with a mud-filled pit.

Dirty Girl Mud Run is unlike anything you’ve ever done. Dirty Girl is for women of ALL fitness levels and is ALL about having fun! As a Dirty Girl, you’ll step, slither, run, jump and climb slightly out of your comfort zone. You’ll get dirty with family, friends, co-workers and the most supportive group of best friends you’ve never met before. You’ll celebrate your accomplishments afterwards with…a complimentary adult beverage and kick back in a festival-like atmosphere. Dirty Girl provides an environment like no other; it’s not a race…so feel free to take your time and stick with your fellow Dirty Girls. It’s an experience to be shared. It’s just good, un-clean fun, with memories that will last forever.

At Dirty Girl, we respect and admire breast cancer survivors, and at every event we celebrate their triumph. While we are a for-profit event company, the cause of finding a cure, educating women and helping those who are currently dealing with Breast Cancer is what we believe in. After all, the Dirty Girl way is to jump in, get dirty, and fight!

Dirty Girl supports breast cancer charity organizations in each of our event markets with a cash donation that we intend to be used in your community. By participating in a Dirty Girl Mud Run you’ve already have made a difference by financially and physically making a stand against Breast Cancer.
