Shiny new logo. Same great service.

40+ years ago we assembled a small landscaping crew to serve York-owned properties. As our services grew far beyond our own properties, the good work of our landscape crews was noticed.   Today, as a result of their dedication to excellence and customer service, Bloomsbury is no longer the single-purpose division it used to be. Though it still services York-managed accounts, Bloomsbury now has crews operating all over the Triangle for a large, and expanding, number of clients.

What do these dates and Racecar have in common?

They’re palindromes!

September 10, 2019 saw the beginning of Palindrome Week (plus a few days). For ten days up through 9.19.19 all the dates are the same when read both forwards and backwards.  Well…at least if you use the typical format found in the US: [month]-[date]-[year].  The next time we’ll see this phenomenon is 12.1.21.

As a tribute to Palindrome Week attached are some of our favorite illustrated word palindromes from the September 2018 issue of PineStraw Magazine.


Brokerage Division has a [golf] ball!

Our brokerage and marketing crew enjoyed an afternoon at Drive Shack.  The Tex-Mex lunch buffet hit the spot and even those of us who aren’t golfers had a great time!

Mission Valley Theatre

After 40+ years in operation the locally owned Mission Valley Theatre closed over the weekend. Raleighites loved the theatre’s hometown, vintage feel and great selection of beverages. Rest assured the landlord is trying hard to keep the space as a theater!
