About Mark Szafranski
Short term rentals are not new to me. I have over two hundred Five Star reviews on another rental platform. Self employed for nearly 30 years, musician, businessman, a pioneer of downtown RVA. Started a music business here back in 1991 and have called this my home ever since. Downtown RVA has come a long way and I'm glad to have done my part to get it to where it is today. I was here when it was almost ghost town. My radio and television commercials always said to come visit us "in the new downtown". I knew it might take a while but someday that would be true and now it is! I hope
Mark Szafranski purchased this Condo in 1993
Why Mark Szafranski chose Monroe Ward
Why this property? It's total karma in a way. This place used to be a Stieff piano retailer in 1909. I'm a piano player and started a music store (having no idea that pianos where sold here years ago before I bought the place). All the steel in the buildings originally came from Carnegie, place my parents grew up and fell in love in (many of my uncles worked in the Carnegie steel mills and may have helped create this steel too). It's just a lot of unique coincidences that I found out about over time. So, why not this building and business, I think it was meant to be. I was just fearless and young enough (26) to say why not?
What makes this Condo unique
This city central location is just great. There are so many unique places to eat and shop right out your door. These are all stand alone businesses. There are no Starbucks, Gap or Guitar Center but we do have Lift, Ledbury and Metro Sound. That is what makes us different and totally worth the effort to come visit. Downtown has finally made it back and I'm still standing after nearly 30 years of being in business. You will not be on your own, my staff and I are here working in the music shop almost daily and can assist as much or as little as you like.
