About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own (not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle (he thinks he is a giant).

We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc.

There isn't any city that offers so much!

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and we really enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Allen chose U Street Corridor (Shaw)

This apartment is practically brand new. We gutted it out and redid the whole thing in 2012.

What makes this apartment unique

This unit is a 10-15 minute walk to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice clean place was just right for us. 15 min walk to Washington Convention center and 10 minute walk to grocery store. It was a little noisy at times with neighbors so close and the street noise/sirens were loud if you slept on the pull out bed in the living room. Well stocked kitchen for cooking. Good deal for the price compared to local hotels. Great to have a washing machine and dryer in the apartment.

Very responsive owner

Our family enjoyed our stay here. We had a couple of special requests, which were handled very quickly by the owner. Easy to get to downtown and attractions from here.
