The Robert

Fort Myers, FL

The Robert is Fort Myers’s newest apartment destination that places residents near the heart of The River District and flourishing downtown area. We set out to build a community to be purposeful and engrained with its surroundings. In loving memory of The Rohdie Group’s founder and chief visionary, Robert C. Rohdie, the property is named after him. Robert “Bob”, built over 20,000 apartments in his lifetime and was always the first one to arrive at work, ready to take on the day. His passion and energy inspiring and infectious. Born and bred in New York, he made Florida a second home and spent most of his career developing A+ apartment communities. Always on the forefront of new and innovative design, The Robert will feature brand new one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with amenities such as a resort-style zero-entry pool, high-end fitness center, arcade and game room and outdoor kitchen with grilling stations. It doesn’t just stop there. We believe that “without customers, we are nothing” and residents will be always be our top priority. We know the world has changed and the place that you call home has taken on a new meaning, now; more than ever. We hope you decide to make your home at The Robert.

The community amenities that The Robert offers are among the best in the apartment industry. Forget the stuffy traditional apartment clubroom and say hello to the modern yet welcoming environment where you can socialize, work remotely or just sit back and enjoy the Starbucks© concoction you just made. After a dip in our zero-entry pool, pick a cozy seat in the covered loggia and relax under a multitude of fans. Show off your grilling talents with friends at the outdoor kitchen or challenge your neighbor to a race on our Fast & Furious Super Cars Arcade Game in Bob’s Garage. We will bring the popcorn.

Every day is a staycation at The Robert. Cancel that vacation. And your gym membership. The Robert has everything you could want. All in one place.

The Robert treats furry family members like a VIP with a four-legged amenity package that can’t be beat. From treats in the clubhouse to an expansive bark park, your pets will be the envy of their furry friends!

How to Budget for Your New Apartment

Are you looking to finally spread your wings and move out in your own apartment?  Do you want to be able to afford the apartment of your dreams so you can live independently?  To make your apartment become a reality, you will want to follow a strict budget and financial plan.  Understanding the costs of your apartments for rent in Fort Myers, FL can help to create the financial plan that you need to stick to.  Here are some of the fixed expenses that you need to include in your budget so that you can afford your apartment.


Rent is a fixed expense that you can expect to have each and every month.  For this reason, you need to prioritize this number in your budget to be sure that you can make this payment when it is due.

Electricity and Utilities

Talk with your property manager before signing your lease so that you can understand what to expect when paying your utility bills.  Some apartments will offer to pay certain utilities, like heat or cooling.  These are some of the factors you should consider when settling on the right apartment for your budget.  Also, there are ways you can save money on utilities by saving resources when you can.

Moving Expenses

Moving expenses shouldn't be ignored, as this can cost you anywhere between a few hundred dollars to a few thousand.  Using a professional moving company costs more money, but if you can assemble a team of friends and family, you will be able to save hundreds on these expenses.  Boxes, packing supplies, and other moving expenses need to be added to your budget.

Cable and Internet

Cable and internet packages come in a range of prices so that you can choose what best meets your budget and your needs.  If you work from home, you may need to consider a higher-efficiency and speed in your internet.  However, streaming services also provide a great option to save money on expensive cable packages.

Car Payments and Insurance

Other routine payments, like car insurance, health insurance, and your car payments are also fixed expenses that you need to keep in your budget.  These payments are recurring and should be considered when you are determining the size and type of apartment you can afford.


Many apartment complexes offer parking as part of their package when you rent there, but some may require street parking or other options.  Talk to your property manager to understand the parking expectations and expenses before you make any assumptions.

These are some of the expenses that you need to factor into your budget for your apartment.  When you are looking for quality apartments for rent in Fort Myers, you will want to check out the newest on the scene.  Contact The Robert to schedule your tour today.
