We created ALX Community to be the central hub and gathering place for people making things happen in Alexandria. Since opening our doors, our members have done incredible things. Here, we highlight a few of the stories of success from our members and how ALX has helped them on their journey.
The Benefits of Coworking
for a Communications Agency
Read President of Communications Group's Story
Jane Barwis, Founder & President of BRG Communications, a woman-owned full service communications agency, was excited to discover at ALX Community an office space that could meet all of her team’s needs and alleviate some of those extra worries that often accompany traditional office leases. Jane and her team can now focus on their work with some of the top corporations, nonprofits, industry associations and medical societies in the country.
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.
This allows the BRG Communications team to experience the best of both worlds with the collaborative nature of the coworking offices and the convenience of a modern, professional meeting area only steps away.

When it came to finding a place for her office, it was important for Toni to find an environment that reflected these same qualities. She knew the moment she walked through the front doors of ALX Community that she had found the right place. She noticed a sense of hustle and activity as members worked on their laptops or met with clients over a cup of coffee. ALX Community provides opportunities for education, development and networking through a variety of lunch time and evening programs while also being a fun place to interact with a group of energetic and hardworking individuals. The programs range from a TALX speaker series and happy hours to wellness workshops and opportunities to volunteer and give back to the greater Alexandria community. It is through the connections she has developed at ALX Community that Toni was able to double her business in one year. ALX Community has become so much more than an office space for Toni. It has become a valuable part of her personal and professional success.

Filming Videos for Your Business
Read Youtube Expert & Video Strategist's Story
With 4+ years of video marketing experience and investing thousands of dollars in my continued education Victoria Levitan has garnered over 250,000 views on her own videos.
It all started with her love for beauty products in 2015. She started her blog Viciloves because she was too scared to go on camera. A year of blogging went by and she mustered up enough confidence to post her first video: “My skincare routine”.
She immediately got a far greater response on her videos than she had in the 1 year of blogging. Not only did she get better engagement, as soon as she saw the $ signs go up, she knew she was on to something.
Living in the Washington D.C. area, she kept filming her own Youtube videos – and occasionally thought of local businesses who’d benefit from being on Youtube.
Now Victoria works out of ALX Community and helps other businesses find success on Youtube!
