About AHA

Our Story: 30+ Years of Good Bones, Great Locations & Conscientious Management

At Home Apartments (AHA) has been creating and caring for quality apartment home communities in Minnesota since 1990. Founders Mike Cashill and Alan Spaulding began with two 14-unit turn-of-the-century brownstones on St. Paul’s Grand Avenue. The Twin Cities natives, who combined experience in property management and building maintenance, sought to build a better model for local property management. The vision was to acquire structurally solid apartment properties in good locations, make them better to live in, and manage them with genuine care, consistency, accountability, and attention to detail. After all, it’s more than an apartment. It’s a home.

The approach is powerful in its simplicity. By creating communities residents feel excited and proud to call home, the duo has helped to elevate the experience of Twin Cities apartment living. Today, AHA’s team of 110+ amazing employees daily keep the legacy strong.

HOW AHA CREATES COMMUNITIES

It shouldn’t be revolutionary for property managers to treat residents like people rather than dollar signs. By focusing on how residents want to live, we improve communities through top-notch hospitality and innovation — because everyone deserves a better home for a better life.

LOCAL COMMITMENT

We’re Minnesotans who love — and live in — Minnesota. Our residents are our neighbors, and it matters to us that we’re taking good care of our neighborhoods. That’s why you can trust our commitment to providing a higher level of customer service, and to creating communities that add value to the cities they’re in.

FLEXIBILITY

Life is dynamic, and circumstances and priorities change. We understand that. That’s why we offer month-to-month options after your initial lease term. It’s also why we offer fair lease buyout options, flat-rate laundry at select properties, flexible use of community rooms, and internal transfer options when your living needs change.

CLEAR PRICING

You can’t find the right apartment for your budget without real clarity on pricing. We make it easy to find accurate pricing. Search by rent range if desired, and instantly view pricing for different communities. Once you’ve narrowed your search, our leasing agents will promptly get you exact apartment pricing.

INVESTMENT

We invest in keeping communities thriving. Proactive plans guide respectful renovations to existing properties, and we never cut corners on quality. We also invest in events to help residents feel at home, including social and networking parties, clean-up days, gift card drawings, and other special events.

GENUINE CARE

We strive to be responsive to how residents want to live. Smoke-free living, more work-from-home spaces, plentiful dog stations, flowers in entryways, well-executed turnovers that get you in your new home fast, learning your name (and your pet’s!) — these are all ways we show we truly care.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Our entire team takes ownership and responsibility for following through on our commitments. We work together to ensure fast, seamless turnaround and thoughtful resolution on any emergencies, requests, and questions. New resident move-in surveys ensure that we keep learning and improving.

SUSTAINABILITY

We are committed to building and managing greener apartment communities. That’s why we are leading the way in Minnesota,
investing in solar and changing how we operate to ensure more sustainable use of the earth’s resources.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS

AHA is more than a property manager. We also build new communities in local markets where demand is high and potential is untapped, delivering needed homes that we can carefully manage and maintain for years to come. View a few of AHA’s newest communities below.

GOOD BONES

We take good buildings in sought-after locations and make them great. By combining attentive renovation plans with respect for historical details, we find the cross-section of charm and function with our renovation projects. Check out some of AHA’s recent renovations.

Sustainability in Action: Committed to Investing in a Greener Future

For AHA, creating communities also means investing in sustainability. We all share responsibility for sustaining the earth’s natural resources. That’s why we are proud to be pioneers in our field, using our capabilities as property managers and developers to make greener, smarter choices for our apartment communities.

We were the first property manager in Minnesota to invest in large-scale solar. In 2016, we took the bold step of installing a 148 kW solar garden on the parking ramp roof at CityVue Apartments in Eagan.

This installation, which was the most significant renewable energy investment at any multifamily project in Minnesota, produces 180,000 kW hours annually. And we continue to prove our commitment in countless ways, including:

  • Continuing to invest in solar (we have now installed more than 555 kW of solar on garage and building roofs)
  • Transitioning to smoke-free living
  • Using LED lighting in building common areas
  • Offering bike parking and storage
  • Mounting photo eyes for all exterior and common area lights
  • Using technologically advanced boilers for heating
  • Providing Recycling Centers at all of our buildings
  • Sourcing environmentally friendly, energy-efficient upgrades when replacing building materials (e.g., thermal-paned windows and insulated white membrane roofs for maximum seasonal efficiency)
