How can I convince the local robins to nest in my trees?

I've just moved in to a lovely apartment with trees around the windows (I'm on the second floor). The area of the Northwest I live in has several robins around town, and as robins are my favourite bird, I'd like to entice them to my trees in particular to home. Reading online has mentioned that having available water would help, but I can't find any direct suggestions for types of bird seed or nesting materials that might be attractive to robins in particular.
A potential roadblock is that I can hear several jays in neighbouring trees, and I feel as though jays would be pretty territorial creatures.
