Resident Stories

Our residents say it best when they explain why they choose to live at Applewood Pointe.

Russ & Teri's story

Russ and Teri lived across the street from the Bloomington- Southtown building and watched as it was being built. They would pause while shoveling their the 85+ inches of snow from this tough winter, look over at the building and think how lucky the people were who moved in.

After talking to a couple friends who had moved in, Russ and Teri decided to make the move too. Teri then talked to a neighbor and asked if he had any friends who might be interested in her home. He looked at it one day, brought a friend over two days later for a look then said she'd take it, on the spot. They closed the sale within a month.

They were all moved in by April 1, and have since met a lot of people at the morning coffee. They continue to meet new people in the fitness room, in the mail area and in the library. The icing on the cake to them has been the everyday things that are now easier. For example, with the books available in the community library, Teri no longer needs to head to the public library. And having the recycling bin right in the mail room means the junk mail never makes it to their home.
