Community is good for both people and business. Unfortunately, many apartment residents feel completely disconnected from their neighbors.

Apartment Life helps apartment owners care for residents by connecting them in relationships. This, in turn, helps improve the community's financial performance through online reputation, resident satisfaction, and resident retention. Changing business. Changing lives.

Mission statement

We believe every individual is created for community and that we are called to love our neighbor as ourselves. Our goal is to live this out while providing strong business value to apartment owners.

After a career in the computer industry, Stan attended seminary in Fort Worth Texas and developed a passion for serving apartment communities while on staff at a church.
