Small business owners have to juggle a lot of moving pieces; from the larger aspects of running a company like staying on track with a client project or ensuring that your employees are satisfied, to the smaller but essential aspects like keeping the office stocked or paying the utility bill.

ALX Community provides an atmosphere that supports another important priority to Jane which is investing in the success and wellness of her employees. The space is conveniently located near many workout studios, parks and healthy food options. In addition to the private office suite that BRG Communications occupies at ALX Community, they also frequently utilize the state-of-the-art conference center located down the hall. The conference center is the first in Old Town Alexandria and provides meeting space for groups of varying size.

“There are so many things I don’t have to worry about now as a business owner. My entire team’s needs are met without us even thinking about it.”
