Our Condo Does Nice Stuff

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Allegiance, Managing Broker/Branch Vice President

The other night I snapped a photo of this flyer that's hanging in the elevators in the condo where I live, Alexandria Knolls West:

Alexandria Knolls West

A condo that gives to the community.  That's something that can make me proud of where I live.

Does your condo or neighborhood give to the community?  Little things like this really do make a difference.

For more information about Alexandria Knolls West or any of the condominium buildings in Alexandria, give me a call at 703-626-0715 or contact me by e-mail at brian@brianblock.com.

Live somewhere you can be proud.

It is nocie to see signs like this rather than, The boilers will be off, or fees are going up and many of the other signs today we see. Thanks

Thanks for sharing your story. Community involvement goes a long way in helping with projects like this one. I too like to participate in helping with the locals and making the world just a little better.

It seems like everytime we do something nice it comes back to us in some way or another.

That's great. There are a lot of communities giving that most aren't aware of. It is good to let people know...

That is very nice of your condo association. Animal shelters in England even took donations of old easy chairs and sofas for the dogs to sleep on.

Nice touch.  Glad to see your association does something positive.  Mine seems to be focused on sending nasty grams to owners instead of making a better community :-)

Hi Brian...This is especially helpful at a time when charity contributions are down and need is up.  The animal shelters are having a hard time like many other organizations.

Brian - Good for your condo management group.  For all the deadbeats who are walking away from their property and leaving animals behind to starve or (maybe) be rescued, it's great to see folks going in the other direction.
