For those of you who were not aware, I had been unemployed since the middle of January. I have just started working for a new management company, Colonial Properties Trust. To the left, you will see a picture of my new office. The community I am currently managing is called Colonial Grand at Silverado Reserve. For a girl who has always managed communities that are at least 15 years old, it is a whole new world.The community is georgeous!!! It is still being finished. Below is a picture of a fountain that is located by the pool in the middle of a courtyard. There is also an outdoor kitchen with a grill, fireplace, granite built in buffet and seating for about 30 people. The pool has a “zero level” entry, which means you can wade directly in the shallow end without going down steps or stairs.The community also has a full fitness center with circuit training, weights, a stretching/yoga room and personal entertainment units on the cardio machines. We also have an internet cafe and an outside porch, called a lanai. The lanai is screen in and has a fireplace that is two sided and shares with the clubhouse on the other side. I could go on and on…I will just let you enjoy the pictures!
