Congrats to our Sales Director of the Year for Ovation, Ginger Apprich with Ovation Heartwood Preserve! During our annual Sales-a-Palooza event, we recognized sales team members who excel and set the bar high.

Our Chief Marketing Officer Thomas Cloutier shared: “Ginger is a two-time winner of Sales Director of the Year. For the second consecutive year she has led the company in sales, deposits, time in the selling zone, and advances. She sets the standard for our organization. Most importantly, Ginger is an amazing person. Being around Ginger makes your day better. She is always positive and takes challenges head on. Congratulations, my friend!”

"Feels like being in a grand hotel."

"Wonderful activities for my mother ..."

“I was so worried mom would hibernate in her apartment, but The Stafford’s Social Wellness Program has created an atmosphere where she feels safe and that someone is looking out for her. Since moving here, she is so busy with all the wonderful activities she barely has time to fit me into her busy schedule. We are so happy she is here. She is, too.” … A happy family member
