WELCOME TO EAGLE CREEK
APARTMENTS & HOMES
Welcome to Eagle Creek Apartments and Homes, Home Page. Here you will
find information on all of The Eagle Creek Properties, and a whole lot more!
If you are a prospective tenant or a current tenant, this site has all kinds of information
... from information about your Lease, to availability of properties.
For those of you who don't know me, I should introduce myself. My name is
Chuck Earley, and over the last 18 years, with the help from my two sons,
Michael, and Ryan, and my wife Nancy and a God given determination ...
we have managed to build three Apartment buildings and remodel four houses. All of
which now make up "Eagle Creek Apartments and Homes". The apartments
and houses are close to Nebraska Wesleyan University and the U.N.L. East
Campus. therefore, each property was specifically designed and built with
the student in mind.
In 1996, we built a four-plex, called Eagle Creek. We named it after my Great-
Grandfather's ranch near O'Neill, Nebraska. We got great satisfaction from this
achievement, and decided to do another, and then another. In 2000 we
completed Little Eagle Creek, a three-plex, and one year later Little Eagle
Creek II, a four-plex. Some apartments even have: fireplaces, skylights, stair lights,
washers and dryers, a full bathroom for every bedroom, and decks overlooking
University Place Park. (We may have gotten carried away some, but we wanted to out
do those new NWU dorms by a mile!) To obtain the land to build the Little Eagle Creek
Project, we even had to move three houses to different lots in the city. Those houses
were then completely remodeled. One house went to: 547 No. 57th St., (sold in June
2010)) and the other to: 5044 Fremont St.. (sold in Dec 2010) In 2004 we added
another home at 4946 Garland St , which in the summer of 2006, we moved to 5219
Garland , which was completed in June of 2007 . The now empty lot at 4946 Garland
will be the future site of our forth apartment building.
Our goal is to keep all of these properties updated and in like new condition, and offer
them at a fair price. We have never increased any rent, as of 2006. We also strive to
make a special effort to get to know our renters, and to quickly take care of any
problems that they may have with their apartments or houses. What sets us apart from
larger rental companies, is that we are owner-managed and, therefore, take great pride
in the quality of our apartments and homes, as well as our tenants ... who, by the way,
we are determined to keep happy. The location of the apartments and homes to major
colleges in the Lincoln area is also a big plus, as well as our competitive prices and
their being in one of Lincoln's safest neighborhoods.
As you can see, we definitely did not build mega-apartment complexes. But when it
comes to housing for students, we think that smaller apartment buildings are better.
We have found that the smaller apartments seem to attract the brightest students ...
the students that know what they are in college for. They seem to have a different goal
in mind. These are the years that young people choose the path that they will take
throughout most of their life. The path that will "set them up for life", you might say.
Those beaten down paths that do not offer many options along the way, are of course,
the easiest but the least rewarding. Most of our past and current tenants have chosen
more difficult academic majors ... the ones not just anyone can handle. They realize
that a few years of hard work now, for the continual dividends paid out along the way is
really trivial in the overall scheme of things. They also know that regardless of the path
they choose, all are equally taxing over the long haul. So what starts hard, gets easier;
and what starts easy, gets tougher. (Heavy but true).
When you read about the drop out rate for students not living on campus, just
remember people go to college for many different reasons, and we think living on
campus has little to do with this rate. In fact, we have not seen any of our tenants not
complete their education. They just keep focused. We, at Eagle Creek Apartments and
Homes, want to help them achieve their goals, by providing a quite, peaceful and highly
maintained apartment or house very close to school, in which to live and study.
We have had the privilege to have many outstanding individuals stay with us ... all
students. Thanks to all of our present and future friends, and especially to our past
renters, whom we got to know and care about, and now miss.
We wish you all the very best in all you do and I offer some advice:
Be happy and never forget God exists and wants you to keep your eyes on the eternal.
When you have doubts of this, and you will, read again about the predicted public
miracle that took place at Fatima, Portugal on October 13th, 1917 or the miracles of
Only God can suspend the laws of physics.
So there you have it, look around and if you have any questions or comments, we
would like to hear from you. I hope that through this site, current tenants will have an
even easier way to keep in touch with us via e-mail , and find within these web pages
the needed information to care for their apartment or house, all of which will make
property management even more efficient!
Thanks for choosing Eagle Creek Apartments and Homes.
