  • Nate Thomas replied to the topic 'Apartment Maintenance Vendors' in the forum.
    If you are a member of your local apartment association, I would start there by talking to them. Then if you have a state apartment association go to them.

    Paul, it is interesting that you should bring up ride alongs because I used to do this at different times.

  • Nate Thomas replied to the topic 'Greenlight a Vet' in the forum.
    This is a time to get the management involved and show support. Now where there are legitimate safety concerns of course you want to address them if lighting is going to cause injury of any kind as safety is a factor.

  • Nate Thomas replied to the topic 'Have We Been Invaded by the Body Snatchers?' in the forum.
    Sandy, I am taking a wild swing in the dark here and more than likely dead wrong, but what I would look at is that somewhere in that properties management history, there was a threat made by a tenant and the management acted.

  • Nate Thomas replied to the topic 'Rodent issue' in the forum.
