As a newer employee of StuartCo at Carver Lake Townhomes who has experienced some changes in our office staff, I have to give a BIG thank you to an amazing fellow StuartCo team member who has gone above and beyond her job description. She has really shown what a true StuartCo employee should be. I look up to her as a great role model for the company. I thank her for coming to our rescue on more than one occasion in the past few months. Corrin Grimstad has been amazing source of help for us at Carver Lake Townhomes. Her knowledge and complete kindness in helping us in any way possible has made this incredible place to work. She is the ‘go to’ girl!
—Janet Schiltgen, assistant manager, Carver Lake Townhomes
I also nominate Corrine Grimstad for Employee of the Month. Corrine came to RiverPlace Apartments in La Crosse to do some training with me early this month, as I am a brand new Property Manager. She was so sweet and helpful, I can’t even begin to tell you! She answered all my questions with a smile, even though the list was a mile long. She went over all the of the StuartCo programs and even went over with me the entire screening, application and leasing process so that I could write it all down. Corrin is such a gem, she even sent me emails with more tips and procedures when she got home. She is a real asset to StuartCo and a true team player!
—Robin Minegar, property manager, RiverPlace
Your commitment to StuartCo along with your extensive experience that you share with others is second to none.
Many thanks to multiple StuartCo team members for taking the time to share their praise of Corrin. We are so glad you’re a part of the team!

Redevelopment is underway on our new student housing community in Arden Hills, and we debuted the brand and concept first at the University of Minnesota housing fair on February 12th. An additional informational event was held this week at Davanni’s and was heavily attended by Bethel and Northwestern students. Floor plans and amenity spaces received overwhelmingly positive feedback and the location has drawn students eager to live off-campus without losing the socialization aspect of living in a student only building.
Our next on-campus event will be at the Hamline student housing fair on February 28th. For more information on this exciting new StuartCo community, visit www.e-streetflats.com and from there, join our fan club on Facebook.
Reducing energy use in your home saves you money, increases energy security, and reduces the pollution that is emitted from non-renewable sources of energy.
Read below for a list of ideas on how to reduce the use of electricity.
- Turn off the lights the moment you go out of a room.
- In the case of when you’re working in a particular area, like study table, make use of task lighting, like table lamps, instead of lighting the whole room.
- During summers, use thick curtains and window shades to reduce sunlight. This way, the room temperature will be lower than usual.
- Keep your printer switched off, when not in use. At the same, turn off your computer when not in use, even if you will be gone for 15 minutes.
- Turn off TV’s, DVD players and Cable TV converters, when not in use.
- While using the hairdryer, keep the setting slightly lower than the maximum.
- Cook Strategically – It takes a lot of energy to heat up your oven. If you’re cooking something small, use your toaster oven instead.
- Microwaves also use a fraction of the energy as compared to your oven or stove top. Whenever you can, heat things up in the microwave to save energy.
- When you use the dishwasher, never ever run a half load. Want to save even more? Turn off the manual “heat dry” and let your dishes air dry.
- Hand wash large pots, pans, and dishes. These take up a lot of room in the dishwasher, and you’ll use the dishwasher considerably less if you wash and dry these items yourself.
As always, we enjoy hearing your feedback too on how to reduce electricity in your every day life. We look forward to your feedback!
This is easily the best apartment I’ve ever lived in. Things are good and have been kept very nice by the staff.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Here’s a fun fact about this special day today! In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression “to wear your heart on your sleeve.” How fun!

Events pictured include Halloween Costume Party, Heritage Landing Twins Game Outing, Rooftop Deck Social Hour, and Fitness Classes to name a few of the common events.
I would like to nominate Shannan, who has been a great addition to our team this year. Since she started Shannan has really been our eyes and ears for us with the residents, finding out what they would like for events at our community. This year alone she has brought self-defense classes, Zumba classes, a pumpkin carving event, a monthly book club, and most recently Shannan worked with North Loop Wine & Spirits to coordinate a wine tasting, which was a HUGE Success. Those are just a few of the new things we have done in the past few months, in addition to our yoga classes and monthly happy hours. As if that wasn’t enough for her to do, Shannan always is eager and willing to help out whoever on the team needs assistance; she handles call-backs for the maintenance work orders, Yardi updates, market studies, assist with leasing, and most important she offers that first smiling face someone sees when walking into Heritage Landing! Thank you for ALL you do, Shannan!

Living Green stretches to many aspects of our lives, and often times it is surprising how non-green we are living. We hope these not so common questions can help shed light on a few subjects. We’ve shared a couple of questions from this great article. The resources are endless! We’ll share a few from the list now and will plan to share more later!
Do biodegradable trash bags actually make a difference in the landfill?
A 2010 test placed five brands of bioplastic bags in compost piles for 180 days and found that, while one did turn a rotten brown, four did not change at all. Bioplastic composting requires an industrial composter that reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Still, whether or not your town is one of the few that composts them, bioplastics are a greener option than conventional trash bags because they’re made from renewable resources rather than fossil fuels.
Is there a natural way to clean your oven?
Conventional oven cleaner and other degreasers are among the most toxic household products around, according to the Washington Toxics Coalition. A great suggestion is to use a homemade paste: Mix 2 cups baking soda, 1 cup washing soda (found in laundry aisles), 1 teaspoon dish soap, and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. (You can thin it with a bit of water if necessary.) Wearing gloves, scour the oven’s interior with a scrubber, rag, and hot water to remove crust that hasn’t yet stuck solid. Apply thickly to all sides of the oven and leave overnight. In the morning, put gloves on and scrub, wiping with a wet cloth until all traces are gone.
Which bedding is more environmentally friendly: organic cotton or bamboo fiber?
Organic cotton, cultivated without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, is greener. Bamboo, organic or not, is a tough, woody grass that is often processed with harsh and polluting chemicals in order to make silky rayon fabric. The Federal Trade Commission recently ruled that, because rayon made from bamboo bears none of the genetic markers of the original plant, it must be labeled “rayon made from bamboo.” However, it’s worth noting that bamboo is a fast growing and renewable grass that thrives without pesticides, fertilizer, or intensive irrigation. When purchasing bed linens, look for USDA certified organic cotton and bamboo or their international equivalents: International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) or Quality Assurance International (QAI) certified organic.
