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.

Tips When Downsizing into a Smaller Home as an Empty Nesters

Have you recently sold your large home to move into a smaller apartment rental? Many empty nesters find that property maintenance is too difficult for them as they leave independently once again. This may prompt some of them to downsize and choose to live in apartments for rent in Fort Myers, FL. Although downsizing their home is likely a great move to improve the quality of their lives, it may be a difficult and time-consuming process. These are a few tips that you should follow when you have chosen to move and downsize your home.

Take Your Time to Organize Before the Move

When you are preparing to move, you should organize everything into boxes or bins. Start with stuff that you will be taking to your apartment. These should only be items that you will need or that you want to keep. Also, make a basket that is designated for items that you can try to sell secondhand. The next bin should contain items that are good for donating. Finally, you will also want a bin designated for garbage for dirty items that cannot be repurposed.

Host a Yard Sale

Before you move, you should host a yard sale to sell any furniture, large items, or items you no longer need. Advertise for your yard sale so that you can draw a large crowd that is interested in secondhand items. This will help you make some money and get rid of stuff that you no longer have room for or no longer need once you move.

Donate What You Can

Once you have realized all the items that you no longer need or want, you can donate them. Take them to a local shelter to help individuals in need or take them to a thrift shop so they can make money for charities. When you donate items, you no longer need, someone else will be able to benefit from them. It is truly a great way to help others and prevent additional waste.

Pack Only What You Need

When you downsize, you will want to take only the essentials. After you have taken the time to organize everything in your current home, you will be able to see what you truly need to survive. These will be household basics, like kitchenware and clothing. You will also want to make sure to bring any sentimental items that add personal touches to your new place as well.

When you follow these tips, you will be able to prepare for your move into a smaller home, which can provide you with much more time to enjoy your life.
