In recent months, you may have received an e-mail asking for you to complete the SatisFacts national resident satisfaction e-mail survey. As a result of the feedback collected from current on-post residents, Corvias Military Living once again received the highest score in resident satisfaction for properties with at least 10,000 homes. SatisFacts also awarded Corvias with the 2013 SatisFacts Superior Resident Satisfaction Company Award. The SatisFacts survey is for all types of residential management companies. Corvias Military Living has earned a superior rating from SatisFacts the past seven years and has also achieved the highest score for companies with at least 10,000 homes six times.
Military families move throughout the year, but summer is typically known as peak PCS season. We’re here to help you!
1) Please provide written notice and a copy of your PCS orders to your Community Office at least 30 days prior to your desired move-out date.
2) If you are preparing to move, you may request a pre-inspection of your home at any time. During this pre-inspection, we will walk through your home, and let you know if there are any potential charges that you may receive upon move-out. Addressing these issues prior to move-out will help you avoid paying these charges.
3) Please leave your home in a surface clean condition upon move-out. This policy is designed to ease the moving process for our military families. If you regularly clean your home, a simple wipe down and sweep/vacuum prior to move-out would meet the surface-clean policy.
4) Be sure to check out the Corvias Military Living website prior to your PCS – we manage housing at seven Army bases and six Air Force installations. If you are Fort Rucker-bound, be sure to check out this column on the Army Wife Network website for more information. Headed to Fort Polk? Click here for more information about all of the fun things you can do around the area. No matter where you go, if you are PCSing, be sure to read about your next duty station. The more you know, the more you’ll enjoy your next home!
Do you have more than one vehicle? Would you like some extra space close to your home? You’re in luck! Randolph Pointe is currently running a special offer for the community’s garages. If you sign a one-year lease on a Randolph Pointe garage, you will get two months FREE, for a savings of $150! Each garage is only $75 per month.
If you have any questions about these offers, please contact the Community Office for more details.
Save space in the recycling cart and crush your aluminum cans. If you leave your cans uncrushed, be sure to rinse them out to avoid emitting odors and attracting bugs.
Want to know what is happening in your community? Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on resident events and community activities.

- Has your car information changed? We need to know about it! Please be sure to keep our Community Office updated with your car details.
- Please do not leave a vehicle in our parking lot if it is not being driven for an extended period of time.
- As a reminder, each bedroom in the community can use up to one parking space in our parking lot. If you require an additional parking space, please park in our overflow parking near buildings 2841 and 2861, or near the Clubhouse and mailboxes. You may also check with the Community Office on our special garage offer!
- Discarding cigarette butts into our landscaping can cause brush fires. Thank you in advance for properly discarding your cigarettes.
- Due to fire codes and fire safety, personal grills are not permitted on patios or balconies. Grilling is also not permitted on grassy areas or anywhere surrounding Randolph Pointe buildings. Grills are located throughout the Randolph Pointe community. Please use these when you feel like cooking outside.
Heat pumps are widely used across the South and other temperate climates. During the summer, a heat pump absorbs heat from inside and releases it outside, cooling the interior in the process. Heat pumps in Fort Bragg homes are designed to keep the interior temperature 15 to 20 degrees below the outside temperature. Turning the thermostat lower will not lower the interior temperature below this 20 degree threshold.
This is completely normal and doesn’t mean that your cooling system isn’t working properly. In periods of extreme heat, you may need to take active steps to help your home maintain a comfortable temperature. Setting the fan switch on your thermostat to “auto”, and changing your air filter(s) every 30 days will help your home remain a comfortable temperature regardless of the season.
