Meet The 2M Team: Leasing Consultant Sarah Glass

Each time we gain a new team member here at 2M, we ask them to share a little bit about themselves.  This week, we’re welcoming our newest Leasing Consultant, Sarah Glass!  Sarah tells us what she loves about 2M and NoMa, what she enjoys doing in her spare time and more.

 

How did you end up in DC?

For the past year, I have been living in Arlington and worked for a company in Northern Virginia. I always found myself going to DC to visit friends and enjoying festivities in the area. When I began working at 2M I couldn’t see myself living anywhere else! DC has so much to offer and I’m so excited to get to know my new city. 2M has allowed me to explore a whole new area of DC!

 

What made you want to come work at 2M?

After exploring different opportunities in DC, I decided on 2M based on its vibrant community. I wanted to find an area in DC that I would be excited to promote and take pride in leasing. I have definitely found that here at 2M.

 

When you’re not working at 2M, where can we find you?

Usually with my friends at a local dive bar or attempting (poorly) some yoga skill at Yoga NoMa down the block.

 

If you were a House of Cards/Scandal character, who would you be?

I think I may be the only person in the world to not be watching House of Cards, but Scandal is a totally different story. I think I identify most with Olivia Pope. When I’m busy at work I very much take on a “get it done” mentality.

 

What are you Netflix-binging on right now?

I am a HUGE Parks & Recreation fan, so naturally I have been repeating all of my favorite episodes.

 

If you were to work from home, which 2M space would you choose?

Hands down I would work on the rooftop if it were a nice day outside. 2M’s location in DC is perfect if you want to catch some great views of the city. In one quick look, you can see the monument, the capitol, and the cathedral! Crazy right?

 

When you want to unwind at the end of the day, where do you go?

Typically you will find me cuddled up on my couch with a glass of wine and my dog, Beau.

 

How would you work on your wellness/fitness at 2M?

Thankfully, 2M has such a large gym that is super conveniently located. We also have yoga and Zumba classes weekly. I think those two things combined will help me get back into the swing of working out again!

 

Describe your perfect day at 2M:

Honestly, any day that I can tour my community to hopeful prospects and receive positive feedback from residents is a great day to me.

 

3 words to describe 2M:

Luxurious

Convenient

Fun

 

What’s your favorite restaurant in the neighborhood and what do you order?

I love a ramen restaurant very close by called Bantam King. You have to get the Miso Ramen, it’s to die for if you’re a noodle lover! The best part about NoMa is that there are so many great places to explore as well as some amazing restaurants in the surrounding areas.

 

If 2M were a drink/cocktail, what would it be?

A crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc because 2M is both refreshing and luxurious.

 

What’s a local organization doing good in our DC community that residents and readers should know about?

Recently, the beer garden in our neighborhood, Wunder Garten, has been hosting a lot of events promoting local charities that provide so many great services to our community. One of which was a Barks & Brews Pawty event featuring the Humane Rescue Alliance.

 

Where is your favorite spot to grab lunch in the neighborhood?

I absolutely love the food trucks that line up every day around the corner from 2M. So many great choices and so much fun!

 

Where do you head for happy hour?

There are some great local spots on H St. I am still exploring the area but I’ll definitely be taking the new trolley over to H St. Corridor to do some exploring!
