Overlook Apartments is a great example of how a management company fosters a culture of community. I came across this inviting property upon one of my visits to the great city of Tulsa. It was a hot June day and when I entered the grand clubhouse, I was greeted with a smile and asked if I would like a nice cold bottle of water. It is this kindness that sets Overlook Apartments apart from the rest. The management team focuses on treating people with respect, kindness and sincerity. The pride of Oklahoma is exhibited by the staff and residents of this special apartment community. Assistant Manager Tiffany Martin loves working for Cottonwood Residential, as her true passion in life is helping people find their future homes. Overlook boasts a desirable location that affords great privacy and also easy access to all major highways and shopping centers.

“When I experienced a personal tragedy in my life, I was overwhelmed by all the love and support that the residents showed me during this very difficult time,” says Martin. “Several months later residents are still being very supportive. This has shown me what awesome people we have living at The Overlook Apartments.” Speaking of great residents, when Connie Hardy, a resident since August 2011, was asked what prompted her decision to move to Overlook, she tells us that originally it was because of the location of the apartment community and also the amenities such as the great fitness center and free Wi-Fi. But, Hardy adds, the sense of community she has experienced at Overlook is the reason she decided to make it her permanent home. “The office staff was so friendly and helpful—and they have made me feel like family. The maintenance and office staff are always willing to help out with anything I need,” she adds with a smile. Overlook also offers residents special amenities such as free carpet cleaning to let them know they take pride in helping them maintain the quality of their homes.

Overlook Apartments is the perfect location for a family needing a new home. Family-friendly amenities such as a playground, volleyball court, complimentary video library and resort style pool are sure to keep everyone happy. The spacious floor plans include full-size washer and dryers in each home, screened patios, spacious closets and cozy wood-burning fireplaces. As a member of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce, this community is a shining beacon of Oklahoman hospitality.
