Work Hard, Play Hard

Congratulations to Myra Silvera, Community Manager at The Pointe at Pickett Farm, for being awarded first place in Figure Novice and fifth place in Figure Open at the 2014 OCB Natural No Gear Classic Pro Qualifier in Greensboro, SC last month. This was Myra's very first fitness competition that she has been tirelessly preparing for day in and day out. We are proud of her hard work and dedication to her fitness passion. Myra will be competing again later this month with the goal of earning her first Pro Card.

Caught In The Act!
"I have been a resident for nearly six years at Somerset pointe apartments and am currently moving out to a new townhouse complex in Gainesville Va. I do however wanted to recognize the work that Arista has done during her time in management while I was at the complex. She was very helpful and would get any work orders completed in a timely manner. I did have a water leak from another apartment and she took the time to make sure my apartment got back up to standards. I appreciated my time at the apartments throughout my stay."
