Badger Properties is a small company
filling a specific niche in the Auburn
student apartment rental market - we primarily work with the smartest undergrads
and scholarship winners as well as graduate students and college graduates.
By emphasizing academics first, we are able to attract and
retain the best tenants so you get the quietest neighbors
possible. We only want to deal with folks who are serious about learning,
someone based on their academic progress is a key part of our screening process.
We try to create the "opportunity for community" among our residents.
Our efforts to establish a 'culture' of smart, inquisitive, friendly people is
unique in college student housing, but it works well for us. How do we know the academic
progress of our tenants? We ask. It's the right on the
We do not rent to any freshmen, period. We've had that policy
for several years, and it has made for less stress for our office and fewer
noise complaints from our other tenants. In the 12+ years I have been
renting apartments, experience has taught me that freshmen are just too
unpredictable. We deliberately choose to rule out even the good ones to be
sure we don't get any of the bad ones. If you prove yourself as a
top-notch student, we'll be happy to have you for your sophomore year and
beyond. (Check out our
to see if you qualify.)
We can be picky because our properties have great locations.
Parking sucks at Auburn. If you look at the map, you'll see 6 of our 7
locations are within walking distance of the Auburn University campus and the
town's main shopping & dining area.
Even our office is centrally located, making it easy for me to walk to
work from my apartment at Center Court most days. That's right, I actually live in one of my own
properties, so my tenants are also my neighbors. They have my cell phone
number, and they can call me, text me, or stop by any time there's a problem.
You won't find the owners of any of the Auburn's other bigger apartment leasing
companies living in their own rental properties.
Maybe that's why they don't care who they rent to...?
