Co-owner and vice president of Reliable Solutions Group
I found a small ad in The Plain Dealer of new homes being built in Middleburg Heights in 2005. We drove into this cute little development. We looked at each other and we immediately knew it just felt like home.
Every time we would see someone that was walking, they would always look at us, smile and wave. That’s just how our neighborhood is. I love that.
One of my favorite trails is the Lake to Lake Trail. It’s just a way to unwind and the dog loves it. You cross the bridge and you can hear these little toads. A lot of people go there and they’ve got their binoculars and they’re doing bird-watching.
Middleburg Heights is pretty resilient. Somehow, someway, the city has been able to flourish during COVID. They haven’t missed a step. It’s just really impressive to see.
Mayor Matt Castelli and Chuck Bichara, the director of economic development, have been really gracious with their time. They’ve actually come into the office to learn more about our business and get to know our story.
I’m looking forward to eating at one of our favorite sushi restaurants — Umi. The owner is really personable. It’s just nice to go somewhere and they know your name. She always knows what I want. I love being a regular there.
