As the Region Re-Opens, District of Columbia and EYA Finalize Public Private Partnership in Fort Totten Neighborhood
When Milli Arawaka was promoted to EYA CFO a year ago, no one expected that in a year, she would need to transition her team to work 100 percent remotely in response to a global pandemic. Not only would the transition require efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of her team, but as EYA joined together to create a COVID-19 Response Team, Milli was quick to participate.
Like most people who are balancing work and family, EYA President McLean Quinn’s COVID-19 experience can be split into two buckets: personal and professional. He said, “The balancing act of childcare and professional obligations has been a significant challenge.” With two young kids at home and a company to lead, McLean said, “My wife and I have struggled to fit 16 hours of work and 14 hours of childcare into our days.” To make things easier, McLean and his wife have decided to split their days in half. “The solution has worked well, though juggling afternoon calls with naptime, snack time, and playtime has led to some amusing moments.”
We’re excited to introduce EYA’s newest neighborhood coming soon to Reston, Virginia: The Townhomes at Reston Station, will open for sales in Spring 2020. Just steps to the Metro's new Wiehle-Reston East Station, dining and retail, and many outdoor amenities, these new modern townhomes offer the only opportunity for private, in-home elevators in Reston and are ideally situated at the crossroads of where you want to be and where you need to go.
During these unprecedented times, we want to make sure we are available to support our homeowners, new home buyers, and community in every way we can. Our sales offices are now open virtually and our sales managers are still available to help you explore your new home opportunities and guide you through the home buying journey. Whether you’re more comfortable with video chats, phone calls, texts, or emails, we’re just a call, tap, or click away.
At EYA, our priority is the health, well-being, and safety of our team, homeowners, neighbors, and community. This situation is creating a lot of change for everyone, and we are working to address these changes and to update our response as new information becomes available.
