Resident Connection During COVID-19

Resident community events and connection has always been an integral aspect of our success at O’Brien Realty Group communities. With COVID-19 upon us over the past year, keeping up with that has proven difficult, but not impossible. We have put forth our best efforts to make all of our residents feel important and to continue to feel a sense of belonging within the community that they live in. 

When the pandemic began, we did everything we could to make our residents feel appreciated and taken care of. Over the course of the 3 months following government shut downs, we provided all of our residents with monthly gift cards to some of their favorite local (Harvey, LA & Algiers, LA) restaurants. We thought if we couldn’t provide interaction and socialization, we can at least provide some comfort in “taking them out to dinner”. 

Just last month, we celebrated Mardi Gras our own way by hosting our annual king cake giveaway. We distributed about 1500 king cakes across our Louisiana properties to all residents, and also brought cakes to a local youth gym. 

Throughout 2020 and 2021, keeping residents engaged through social media contests and promotions has been a priority. Great prizes have been given out for participation including money off rent, electronics, and gift cards. Some of the resident favorites were our Jack O Lantern Halloween contest, 12 days of Christmas, and “What we love about living” at an O’Brien Realty Group apartment community. 

Next week, we are very excited to be hosting one of our first in person events. We will be hosting a ‘Barks & Brews’ at our dogs parks located at Emerald Pointe Apartments in Harvey, LA and the Mayfair Apartment Homes in Algiers, LA. We are inviting residents and members of the local community to enjoy refreshments for themselves and their furry friends, and enjoy a live DJ. Make sure your pup is looking his/her best because we will also have a professional photographer taking shots for our new community pet calendars! It will be outside, and we will require masks and people to be socially distanced.

Night Out Against Crime 2018

Our 10th annual Night Out Against Crime is right around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! Although we have been hosting our own NOAC event for 10 years, this national event has been going strong for 35 years. According to, over 16,000 communities and 38 million neighbors participate in this event across the US.

Night Out Against Crime is the perfect opportunity for neighborhood communities to come together to stand up against crime. It’s also a great way for the community to get to know their city’s first responders to form bonds that foster a sense of safety and mutual respect.

As usual, we will be celebrating NOAC at our Summerfield Apartment Homes community on October 16, from 6 PM to 9PM. Our event is completely free and open to the public. The event will include food, music, and tons of fun for children of all ages. Don’t forget to tag your photos with #DatNightOut2018 for a chance to win prizes. So mark your calendars and stop by! We hope to see you there!

Sun Protection

It’s no secret that summers are brutal here in Louisiana. According to, “one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.” With thousands of cases being reported every year it’s important to protect yourself against sun. Here are some helpful habits to make sure you can continue to have fun in the sun.

Wear Sunscreen

There is a reason why sunscreen will always be at the top of the list when it comes to protecting your skin. Make sure it has SPF 30 and you apply it 30 minutes prior to any outdoor activity and then once again every two hours.

Stay Out The Sun During Peak Hours

Avoid the hours between 10:00 to 4:00, when the sun is at it’s hottest. Try to go to the pool or beach in the early morning or late afternoon hours. The sun won’t be as intense and you will avoid the huge beach crowds

Protective Clothing

Make sure to eliminate sun exposure by covering up. Wear long sleeve shits or pants made out of breathable fabrics such as linen. The breathable fabrics will keep you protected while allowing airflow. Don’t forget to wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your head and eyes as well.

Step Away From Tanning Beds

It might be tempting to get a quick summer tan a the local tanning salon but think again! Tanning beds give off UVA and UVB rays which can also cause long term skin damage.

Sun Protection Isn’t Only For The Beach

Many people use sunscreen only when it comes to taking a trip to the beach or a pool day. But sunscreen should be used every day, even overcast weather. Both UVA and UVB rays can penetration on the cloudiest of days. Also make sure to protect yourself while driving in your car as windows and mirrors reflect light.
