Local Real Estate Team Donates $1K to homeless shelter The team featured on HGTV raised funds via social media in 22 minutes WOODBRIDGE, VA, July 12, 2017 – AJ Team of Keller Williams Realty, recently featured on an episode of HGTV’s popular show House Hunters, today announced viewers helped raise $1K for ACTS Homeless Shelter in Dumfries, VA. Because one of the team’s Core Values is to “Be A Blessing”, they donated $1 for every social media post viewers tagged to the team’s Facebook or Instagram pages during the 22-minute live show. At 1 p.m. July 20, the AJ Team will present the check to shelter representatives at our office located at 4310 Prince William Parkway, Suite 200, Woodbridge, VA 22192 “There are so many ways we can use the money … Our big project right now is with our Hunger Prevention Center that we’re trying to get off the ground, which is an additional support for our food pantry. For the homeless shelter specifically, our focus is on sustainable housing programs to help people find permanent housing they can afford. The funds can be used to help pay for deposits and first month’s rent,” said Ethan Vick, ACTS Administrative Coordinator. Vick indicated that ACTS has sheltered 18 families - 31 adults and 43 children - this year in their Beverly Warren Shelter and have helped 37 families into permanent housing, including 35 adults and 54 children. The journey which led the AJ Team to HGTV began when CEO Allen Johnson met Makya and Delmar through a network of friends. The couple had almost given up on finding their dream home after a year-long search because they were frustrated with their previous realtor and the home-search process. Johnson convinced them to give his team a chance, and fellow AJ Team Realtor Sam Eligwe spearheaded the efforts to find the perfect home for their growing family. Due to AJ team’s proactive approach, Makya and Delmar found their forever home and were under contract in just 12 hours! “The last time I worked with a realtor to purchase a home, I had a horrible experience. I carried this level of disdain for realtors into my initial meeting … Fortunately, Sam not only understood my concerns, but wasn't offended by my skepticism and took it as a challenge. He fought for the things my family wanted and exceeded our expectations – he even closed the deal within 12 hours of our initial offer! … [The] team worked magically to creatively make sure we got the most out of our deal as possible. I'd recommend [the] AJ Team to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. They take GREAT pride in what they do…,” Makya said after the show was filmed. According to MLS 2017 figures, the AJ Team is the #1 team in the Woodbridge market.

GET READY WOODBRIDGE, VA, BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE! CIRQUE ITALIA, THE FIRST TRAVELING WATER CIRCUS IS COMING TO TOWN WITH A SPECTACULAR SHOW THAT YOU CAN’T MISS! Cirque Italia has grown to the point where the next logical step can only be to expand operations and double our presence at the national level. In response to our wonderful fans all over the U.S., and with over 90% of shows being sold out, NOW is the perfect time for a substantial investment. Beginning in 2017, Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, introduces a second unit, the Gold Unit: a luxurious experience where technology and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show. This new performance will feature an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Cirque Italia is ready to provide a breathtaking experience. This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent - the result is simply out of this world! The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not going to be any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of our strongest assets. Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy smart and well-thought out comedy, Alex the clown thrills while taking an acrobatic journey on the trampoline. Our Argentinian twin jugglers (with a Guinness World Record in their pockets) can handle all kinds of objects in the air, even fire! There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist as she bends in ways you never would have imagined. She makes it seem so natural, you might end up trying it in yoga class. Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups. This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows. The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country. Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true.
