Welcome! We love serving this community.

Greet is the warm “hello” waiting in your mailbox. Nothing brings us more joy than sharing stories from local residents, exclusively for readers (and neighbors) like you.

We are grateful to serve this amazing community.

Every month, we share never-before-published stories about local residents, businesses, and more.

See below for a few of our recent favorites.

Meet Your Publisher

Brett Kitchen

Greet is a monthly magazine reaching all 6000+ homes in the Del Ray community. The publisher, Brett Kitchen, had always enjoyed coming to Del Ray as a consumer and seized upon the opportunity to take it on as a magazine franchise when his friend presented the idea in the spring of 2022. “Del Ray has been the ideal community for a magazine such as Greet. The residents and business owners embraced this from the very beginning, and it has been wonderful to see them enjoying it and contributing to its success,” he exclaims. A Kentucky native who has been living in the DMV since 1991, his career spans a range of organizations including the World Bank, Peterson Institute for International Economics, and Environmental Law Institute. He holds a B.A. in business management and French from Transylvania University (Lexington, KY) and a Master's in International Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management (Phoenix, AZ).
