Welcome to our Newsletter!
We are excited to present our new monthly newsletter, which aims to provide valuable insights into everyday life at ARPM. Each month, you can expect to read about our staff and how we're using our knowledge, skills, and experience to serve you better! Today's market is not the market of years past. ARPM has remained one step ahead of the competition by providing our owners with valuable suggestions to keep their properties rented. We continue to develop new tools that allow us to interact with our tenants in a way that is both safe and convenient, while still providing the same excellent level of customer service that our clients and customers have come to expect.
Penn State Response to COVID-19 Update
We are pleased that Penn State has announced they will be offering more in-person class options for the Summer Session, and plan to be fully back in-person this coming Fall! We continue to monitor the University's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will alert you and our tenants as announcements are made. ARPM is excited for the prospects of a full return of our student tenants for the Fall 2021 semester! It's been lonely around here!
