Sandra Robertson has her roots in Glenville – literally! The retired police officer is a resident and community gardener in the neighborhood, and in October won the NeighborWorks America Dorothy Richardson award for her garden, Ashbury Sprouts. The beautiful patch of green space has over twenty dedicated volunteers and is a neighborhood gem. Sandra enjoys bringing fresh food to her neighbors, many of whom don’t have easy access to healthy foods. She also coordinates activities for kids, and seniors alike, to help them become connected to the land they live and play on. Sandra loves her neighborhood and helping fellow residents, but at the end of the day, she says “it’s fun to play in the dirt….and there is nothing like a fresh tomato that doesn’t taste like cardboard.”


Bianca Butts

Why she loves living in Cleveland with her husband Chris and daughter Ellie: “It’s been a joy to watch Old Brooklyn grow and improve over the last 15 years. It’s awesome to take a walk around the neighborhood, stopping front porch to front porch to visit with neighbors. We also love the diversity of Ellie’s school and the different experiences she has because of it. We are so happy here.”Tia lives in Old Brooklyn and is a Consultant for Inbloom Consulting in Brecksville. Tia and her family moved to Old Brooklyn in 2003. They have grown to love the neighborhood and now plan to be lifelong residents.  She loves being no more than twenty minutes from everything, meeting up with her neighbors and hiking in the nearby Metroparks.

Max Sollisch

By day, Max is a copywriter at Marcus Thomas, and by night he is a songwriter performing as Dolfish. In his free time, Max appreciates the three miles of lakefront found in his neighborhood, taking advantage of Euclid Beach and Wildwood Marina and exploring the new and exciting business and arts scene in his own neighborhood.

Max loves the “togetherness” he has found in Cleveland. “It’s super mixed here and while there are divides, like you see in any neighborhood, there’s also a lot of togetherness. And the people. Ah, the people. Everyone says hi, everyone remembers you, talks to you, cares about you. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.”
