Bring Dad over for our Storewide Sale this weekend

Dear Forklift Fans,

The Green Job Fair is TODAY in Hyattsville!

Today, Saturday June 20th, 
from 2-5pm, Prince George's County will host its first annual Green Job Fair. As part of our mission to build the local green economy, Community Forklift is partnering with Prince George's Department of the EnvironmentPrince Georges Green, and Jobs Have Priority to highlight local sustainable career and training options.

Meet up with friends at 
Forklift First Fridays
Stop by Community Forklift on the first Friday of each month this summer for entertainment, food, beer & wine!  Our next party will be July 3rd, from 6-8pm.  


Each month, we'll have live music from local bands (much thanks to the Riverdale Park Arts Council!), and the Town Center Market will provide microbrew and wine.  Great food trucks will provide delicious dinner options, and local artists from the Hyattsville Community Arts Alliance will be displaying their creative works!

Please contact our outreach team for more information.

(Please note:  seating for this next workshop is full, so it's standing-room only, but more workshops will be announced on our website soon!)

FREE Workshop: 
Top Home Improvements for Adding the Most Value to your Home 
Saturday, June 27, 2pm-3pm

Learn about the top home improvement projects that will add the most value to your home. Topics will include both updates to your home's interior as well as the exterior curb appeal. You'll also get helpful home maintenance tips that will help you maintain your home's features and systems. Learn from local contractors and one of the area's top producing real estate agents.


Robyn Porter recently purchased a farm as a second home. The farm pre-dates 1846 and the farmhouse was once a log-cabin. She has been restoring the home, giving it contemporary comforts yet keeping historic details. Her home renovations combined with her extensive real estate experience give her a keen perspective on home improvements and maintenance.


As a licensed REALTOR with more than 11 years experience, Robyn helps people make sense of the home buying and selling process. The Internet and social networks offer people vast resources of advice and information on homes for sale, pricing, neighborhoods, and more. But how to use that information to buy or sell a home is often confusing. Robyn helps people interpret the timelines, checklists, and charts to determine how it applies to a specific home buyer or seller. This helps her clients make informed decisions when faced with many real estate choices. Robyn is a consistent Top Producer with W.C. & A.N. Miller's Bethesda, Maryland All-Points office. She is ranked #4 company-wide in total number of settled transactions in 2014.
