Auston Grove Apartments August 2012 Newsletter

Important Announcement

Ricky Reed has been with Auston Grove for 8 years but has decided to move on to new endeavors.

He has made great friends with many residents and has been a valuable asset to Auston Grove for many years. Please join us in wishing him farewell and lots of luck in the future.

Because We Care

We hope that you love living at Auston Grove! We would really like some feedback from you on your happiness and suggestions for improvements at Auston Grove.

We have created a survey to let us know what you think about your community. We want to know what you like, what you don’t like, things we could do better, or ideas of services that you would like us to offer or improve on. Please take a few moments to complete, click here. Your feedback is very, very important to us.


We have recently made some changes with regards to our Short-Term Furnished Rental (STFR) that we want to make you aware of. The great news is that the rate will remain $55/night. There will be an additional form that will need to be completed by your guest staying in our STFR.

This form will confirm the details of the reservation made, as well as require information about the guest. Please see the attached form to review this new form that is required to be completed prior to the keys being released to the guest. As always, please feel free to contact the office with any questions.

Friendly Reminders

  • Please keep your neighbors in mind when coming home during the late evening hours. We ask that you do your best to keep your voices low to avoid disturbing your neighbors.
  • We ask that when signing out DVD’s that they are returned within TWO days so everyone has a chance to check them out!
  • If you ever experience unwanted house guests (bugs!) let us know before each Thursday of the week. Our brave Dodson exterminator comes around each Thursday.
  • For all pet owners please remember we have placed dog pots for your pets’ waste all over the property and we sincerely ask that you use them.
  • Smoke Detectors-When the battery power starts getting low it will begin to chirp. We have batteries in the office but would suggest you purchase some 9-volt batteries to have on hand in the event it begins chirping in the middle of the night or on the weekend. That could save you a lot of aggravation.


The Auston Grove maintenance team is available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. for normal maintenance requests. You can call us at 217-9995 to speak with someone in the office, leave a message or submit your request online - click here.

If you have a maintenance emergency, you can call the above telephone number and listen for the prompt to enter the maintenance emergency voicemail. Please leave your name, address and telephone number so that a member of the maintenance team can call you back.


This will notify a member of our maintenance team at whatever time you leave the message. Please make sure to leave all standard service request messages on the normal voicemail.

Renter's Insurance

You’ve moved in, set up phone service and changed your mailing address. What’s left to do? Get renter’s insurance to protect your precious belongings from unexpected perils like theft, flood or fire! Renter’s insurance also covers your valuables kept in garage and storages. Our property owner’s insurance covers the buildings, not personal valuables inside, but for a low monthly premium you can insure yourself against future problems.

Renter’s insurance can cover hotel stays and eating out should it become necessary to do so due to not having access to your apartment. You can often work with the company that insures your vehicle to get a group deal and you will barely notice the increase. Please contact an insurance representative immediately for peace of mind.


Please join us for a pool party on Wednesday, August 22 from 6-8pm! This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and fill your belly with some yummy food and drinks! You won’t want to miss it, so we hope you can join us!

Internet Safety Seminar

We have been presented with an opportunity to offer an internet safety seminar thanks to the knowledge of Patrick Letts. Patrick Letts has been teaching Computer Applications, Networking, and Programming in high school for Wake County Public Schools since 2003. Before becoming a teacher, he worked for a software company in Durham. As a result of both his experience in the business world and the classroom, he realizes the importance of Internet Safety in the current curriculum. Every year during Open House parents continually ask about this segment of the curriculum and have encouraged him to create an Internet Safety presentation for those beyond the classroom because they believe this valuable information is not only informative but crucial in this 21st century world. Well, he finally has a presentation for the community that focuses on basic internet safety from the perspective of a typical day-to-day Internet user.

Patrick’s presentation lasts about an hour, concluding with a question and answer segment followed by technical support for participants’ computers. While on site, Patrick will offer technical support for residents at a fraction of the prices charged at local retail stores.

Please see the attached document for further information regarding this seminar.

Please call or email the Auston Grove Office and let us know if you would be interested in a seminar like this. If we have enough interest, we will set up this seminar in our clubhouse in the next couple of weeks.

Garages and Storages

Do you have too much stuff that you have accumulated over the years, or just want your car to have a home of it’s own? We have your solution... Our community has garages and storage rooms available throughout the property.

They are available on a month to month basis and we will try to find one as close to your home as possible! Just call us or come by the office if you are interested.
