Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home.

Featured Property of the Week: 620 Oneida Street NE

Built in 1951, this 4 BR/2.5 BA semi-detached brick row home has been renovated by the current owners for the past 2 years. The improvements include all redone bathrooms, new exterior and interior doors, new windows, a completely replaced basement, new systems and a bevy of other new features. The home has remote-controlled in-floor mood lights, a Ring doorbell, Nest thermostats and other smart home features that puts this home firmly in the 21st century, despite the home’s classic charm.

In the back is a beautifully landscaped garden and yard with plenty of room for a dog, a grill and for relaxation. While the home retains the traditional feel of the original rowhome, it’s firmly cemented in today’s generation with all of the upgrades that make this home truly shine!

Dear PoPville readers,

This is a photo from this year’s Well-Paid Maids company picnic.

It was held in June and it was an awesome day. We rented a pavilion in Rock Creek Park near Peirce Mill, got catered food from Federalist Pig, played Kan-Jam and cornhole, and got to know each other a whole lot better. Maybe you’ll recognize Johanna or Nishad in that picture, who have both been profiled on PoPville in the past and are still with us.

For many of our employees, the picnic was far from the only paid day off they had this summer. Over the last few months, we’ve had staff use some of their 22 PTO days to travel to a variety of destinations including Las Vegas, New York City, Minneapolis and Charlotte.

We encourage our employees to take all of their vacation each year, and with Labor Day around the corner we still have a few more staff vacations coming up to round out the season. Other folks are waiting until the winter holidays and some are saving up for international trips next year — our PTO rolls over so that nobody loses out on valuable time to rest and relax.
