5 Reasons to Rent a Home with Oxford

Margaret WyzlicAnn Arbor Residential Leasing

Oxford Knows Ann Arbor Student Housing.

Ann Arbor is a terrific place to live, with top-notch arts and culture, the world-class University of Michigan, a vibrant and eclectic shopping scene, and hundreds of parks and open spaces to explore. Here at Oxford Companies, we aim to live up to our community’s high standards for quality – offering clean, well-maintained multifamily buildings and student housing, and outstanding service to our tenants. Here are just a few reasons you should consider an Ann Arbor rental house or apartment with Oxford:

1. We’re serious about safety.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020, we had extraordinary standards for safety for our tenants and staff. Our maintenance staff is undergoes frequent safety training, and they’re certified in First Aid, CPR, and the use of AEDs – plus mold awareness, OSHA/MIOSHA and EPA Approved Asbestos Awareness. We’ve always maintained high expectations for our CREW’s management of safety issues, so when the pandemic began affecting our community, we enacted even more protocols to keep our tenants and staff safe. New practices include a staggered move-in process to encourage physical distancing, screening our staff for symptoms and providing them with proper PPE (and requiring them to use it), and enhanced cleaning techniques.

You may have noticed that our 2020 leasing season has gone 100% virtual as well. Not only is this new process safer, but also more convenient for everyone interested in leasing with Oxford.

2. Great service is part of our culture.

You might have heard that we call our staff “the CREW” – but what you might not know is that CREW is actually an acronym for “constant improvement, respectful and accountable, exceed expectations, and work together”. These values come together for a culture that is founded on great service to our customers, tenants, partners, vendors, and community. To this day, Oxford strives to make Ann Arbor a more enjoyable, vibrant place to live, work, visit, and go to school – and you’ll feel that in your interactions with our staff.

3. We’ve got locations wherever you want to be.

If you want to live in Ann Arbor, then Oxford has a place for you. Prefer the peaceful, tranquil north side of the city near the Huron River? We have houses just steps from parks and trails. More of a downtown dweller? Our University of Michigan campus area housing and Old West Side apartments could be the perfect fit. Prefer the Southside of town? You’ll love our Ann Arbor rental homes with easy access to I-94 and the Briarwood Mall.

4. It’s a 21st century leasing experience at Oxford.

At Oxford, we want to make leasing with us as easy and stress-free as possible, so we offer online payment options, downloadable forms, email and social media communication, and online maintenance requests. And if you think of anything else that we could improve to make your leasing experience more streamlined, let us know! We’re always excited to hear your feedback.
