Breakdown Blues Brandon Perkins The Landings of Brentwood Apartments Brentwood, TN Brandon was on his way home from work when he heard a loud shrieking noise. He noticed a young woman and her children panicking by their car, so he pulled over to see if he could help. The woman saw the Venterra logo on Brandon’s shirt. She introduced herself as Jamie, and as a resident at The Landings. Jamie explained her car was making loud noises and she wasn’t sure what was happening. Brandon examined the car, tried a couple of old mechanic tricks and realized the car needed a few parts. Brandon decided he wanted to do something to WOW Jamie. After some digging, he found the exact part the car needed. He went to a nearby auto store and bought a gift card that would cover the part. When Brandon gave the gift card to Jamie, she was blown away. She was impressed that he had gone above and beyond to help her family.
Honing the Summer Bod! Eizabeth Metts, Stacey Shropshire Riverstone Apartments Fort Worth, Texas A resident who uses the fitness center regularly came by the office to ask if they take suggestions for new gym equipment. Stacey told him that all new equipment had already been purchased in January, but she would be happy to take his request. The resident was interested in a machine with a pull up bar to help him develop 168
upper body strength. The community wasn’t in a position to buy anything too pricey, but gave it some thought. They decided to WOW him. Stacey and Elizabeth found an “at home” pull-up bar online. They decided the pull up bar would be perfect for the resident’s apartment. When he was called into the office and given the pull-up bar, he was completely taken aback. He expressed his gratitude and promised to put the bar to good use.
