Grand Opening for SCS Sturgeon Bay Estates

A grand opening celebration for SCS Sturgeon Bay Estates was held on September 18, 2018. The event was hosted by SC Swiderski’s on site manager Don Braun along with the Sturgeon Bay-Door County Visitors Bureau. Several SC Swiderski staff and their guests attended along with Mayor Thad Birmingham, City Administrator Josh VanLieshout, Community Development Director Marty Olejniczak, city staff, Alderpersons and Door County Economic Development Corporation.

SCS Sturgeon Bay Estates opened its first building in September 1. When completed, it will have 56 apartment homes consisting of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom floor plans. Rent includes a parking garage, heat, water, trash and snow and lawn care. The site has a dedicated on-site manager handling leasing and maintenance.

The company thanked the city of Sturgeon Bay and the community for supporting the development. They shared that the first building is fully occupied by tenants and they are accepting applications on the future buildings that are under construction. More information on the site can be found here

My Summer with S.C. Swiderski


The last three months at S.C. Swiderski have been a lot of fun and a great learning experience. I am a senior majoring in Real Estate Property Management, so I had learned quite a bit about the industry, but I hadn’t had the chance to apply any of my knowledge to real world scenarios until this summer. I spent my first few days getting familiar with the leasing process. It was a lot to take in at first, but over the next few weeks I was able to get out several of our sites and get some hands on experience.

As the Leasing Intern, I received a very well rounded experience that consisted of some onsite work and some office work. Some of things I got to do while onsite were showings, move-ins, move-outs, and a lease signing. Being onsite was my favorite part of the job, and it was great to be able to help tenants with any questions or problems they might have. When I wasn’t onsite I was in the office working on security deposit transmittals, processing applications, making welcome bags, and learning about the company and the industry as a whole.

I learned a lot about the company’s high standards for apartments, and I got the chance to see a few of our buildings in progress. It was so cool to see sites as they were being completed, and it gave me a better understanding of how real estate, architecture, construction, marketing, and leasing all come together to meet the demands and expectations of future tenants.

Overall, my summer internship was an amazing experience. There aren’t many management companies where you can experience everything from the drawing board to moving tenants in to new buildings. I would have to say the best part of the internship was my coworkers. Everyone was more than happy to help me with anything, and there was never a stupid question. The Leasing Department, especially, made my time at S.C. Swiderski a blast. I will miss being part of such a great team, and I wish S.C. Swiderski good luck as they continue to expand across Wisconsin.
