Back to School

Gateway ApartmentsWishing a happy start to the school year to all of our young residents of Gateway Apartments. Remember that children will be walking to and from the bus stop. Please be careful when driving through the community and remember to stop at stop signs.

There are still a few more weeks of our pool season so be sure to soak up those remaining summer rays!


Maintenance Satisfaction Surveys

Gateway ApartmentsWe strive to take excellent care of our residents and the community at Gateway Apartments. Our dedicated team has over 50 combined years of experience and a maintenance technician is available 24/7 for emergency calls. In order to provide the very best attention to our residents, we follow up every completed service call with a satisfaction survey. It’s so nice to read the kind words and compliments.

Thank you to the team at Gateway for continuing the good work!


Gateway Apartments Gives Back

Gateway Apartments Pasta DinnerAt Gateway Apartments, we consistently strive to explore new ways of giving back to those in need. Each fall we team up with our sister community, East Mountain Apartments, to host a special dinner with all proceeds going to charity.

This year’s “Pasta with a Purpose” featured a takeout or delivery dinner consisting of penne pasta, meatballs, roll, salad, and cupcake.  Over 200 dinners were prepared and $1200 was raised through the dinner and donations!  This amount will be donated to the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute in honor of Ayden Kohler.

We are genuinely proud of our residents and what they continually accomplish for society!


Fall in Love with Our Maintenance Team!

Gateway Apartments Maintenance TeamIf you ask our residents what they love most about living at Gateway Apartments many will tell you it’s our wonderful maintenance team! Here at Gateway Apartments our main focus is customer service and making sure our residents are taken care of, which includes apartment maintenance. Our maintenance team’s main priority is to solve any obstacle in a thorough and speedy manner.

Whether it is a clogged drain, burned out lightbulb or a jammed patio door, our team members are on the job within the day. Unlike regular maintenance technicians that require you to take off work and let them in your house, with your permission, our team can make a service call while you carry on with your day. Our technicians bring card to leave at your door after each call. This allows our residents to know when a member has stopped in and explains how they have resolved the concern.

There is also no need to worry about after hours calls. With our 24-hour emergency maintenance we always have a team member on call to help with lock-outs and other urgent service requests.

Relax Poolside at Gateway Apartments

Gateway Pool

For many of our residents, summer is their favorite season at Gateway Apartments because they LOVE their swim club.  Not only do they get to relax all season in a clean, quiet and lifeguard-attended pool but we also provide lots of fun in and around the water.

Water aerobics, BBQ & pizza parties and a late night live jazz swim are just a sampling of the community events that make summer special at Gateway!


Praise for Gateway Apartments

I moved to Gateway in May 2013 to join the Wilkes University creative writing community, where we encourage our students to focus on a sense of place when developing their writing.

The Gateway is a prime example about the importance of place because it evokes a sense of community, something that starts the moment you arrive.

There is a tremendous sense of security.

The convenience of being close to everything, yet surrounded by the beauty and serenity of Kirby Park.

Simply said, the Gateway is not just a place to live… it’s a place to call home.

Extraordinary efforts during the recent winter storm

We received a lovely letter from one of our residents about our recent efforts during the winter storm. Here is what was said:

“I am writing to express my appreciation for the extraordinary efforts of the entire maintenance team following the recent winter storm.

Despite the closure of businesses throughout the surrounding area, and Wilkes University declaring a snow emergency, the perimeter roads to the Gateway Apartments were plowed before 8:00 AM. The sidewalks were cleared soon thereafter, despite an incredible amount of snow that created havoc throughout the entire Northeast.

As a resident of the Gateway community, please know I very much appreciate the attention to our safety and comfort, something that is demonstrated each and every day by the entire maintenance team.

We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team of professionals in our community.”
