Employee Spotlight: Robby Seabolt

Robby Seabolt

Position: Maintenance Supervisor

Born and Raised: Macon, Georgia

Favorite Lunch Spot: The Bear’s Den

Robby joined the Lofts in March of 2015. Since then he has become part of the backbone of the operation. As Maintenance Supervisor, Robby is always on the go and ready to tackle any project. Whether it’s a repair, replacement or responding to a resident emergency, he doesn’t hesitate.  The Lofts would not be the same without his positive attitude, exceptional work ethic and infectious laugh.

Robby married his beautiful wife, Heather, in 2013 and they share 2 daughters and a dog named Baylee. He loves being at the ocean, going to country music concerts, watching NASCAR, camping, remodeling his house and spending time with his family. According to his wife, he is as kind and easy going at home as he is at work each day. Heather says she is lucky to have him. We here at the Lofts feel the same way!

MEET REED JONES:

INTERN @ LOFTS AT MERCER LANDING

Born & Raised: Metter, Georgia! Everything's better in Metter!

Favorite Food: Dovetail - hands down! It's truly one of Macon's best kept secrets. If you're looking for me on a Saturday morning, I'll be at Dovetail waiting on my Fried Chicken Benedict!

Favorite Thing About Mercer: Is "everything!" an acceptable answer? From the Admin Building Tower to Plunkett Basement, I love every single thing. Where else can you get a beautiful campus, a top notch education, and be able to know just about everyone on campus. I hate that I only have two years left!

Favorite Thing about The Lofts: Location! Whether you live at Village, Tattnall or Landing you are never more than ten minutes away from the other side of campus. Living at the Lofts at Mercer is convenient and you really get the whole package when you choose the Lofts as your home!

LOFTS AT COLLEGE HILL PROPERTY MANAGER

 

Born: Clayton County

Currently Living: Henry County

Favorite place to go for lunch:

“The Rookery…yummy!!”

What do you love about The Lofts at College Hill?

“I absolutely love everything about the Lofts. I feel that College Hill has so many unique things to offer both Mercer Students as well as young professionals. The amenities we offer are untouchable.  The gym and yoga room alone are awesome! You add that with the coffee bar, billiards room, patio with fire pit and the amazing rooftop terrace and prospects are ready to lease before even viewing the loft itself.  Sierra Development spared no expense with the amount of upgrades that were put into each Loft. And the simplicity of having one bill, the all-inclusive lifestyle is perfect for busy students and young professionals.”

What do you do when you’re away from College Hill?

“My greatest passion in life is raising my three wild and crazy boys!!  They keep me on my toes and young!! If I had to say where my happy place is … it would be at whatever baseball park they are playing at!!  Next to my boys, the thing I am proudest of is my non-profit, Caring for a Cause. I started it back in 2010, we help local families and mostly those with sick children.  We do fundraisers to help with expenses and to raise awareness for the different diseases. Not only does it feel AMAZING to help others but it allows my boys to see why we are here; to help and love people.”
