    Things are much different in the midst of a pandemic but it seems our safety is a priority and even under mask I can still sense smiles. I am happy with the choice I made in making Crystal Plaza my home. The ability to get to the metro station underground, The morning coffee, The dog treats for the furry neighbors, laundry facilities, are just a few of my favorite perks so far. I can't wait for the pool to open and for my schedule to free up to allow me to use some of the other spaces. Huge shout out to Sandra for here help with Leasing virtually while I was out of state. She made this process so easy and we are grateful.
