Hi Everyone! Hope this post finds you well! We are getting close to the big day of our grand opening on the Suffragist House, and we are so excited to show you a few new photos of the progress:

It's gorgeous, and if those walls could talk!
History Lesson in Cliff Notes: We were kindly corrected on our use of "Suffragette" last time we wrote about this. The Suffragettes were our British counterparts, and Suffragists were the American faction. The Suffragettes were more aggressive, and would use violence to get their point across. They were anti-men, and generally much more radical. The Suffragists wanted to distance themselves from their militant British sisters. Instead, they allowed men to join, used pageant plays, peaceful protests and even cookbooks (our own Cora Scott Pond, who lived in this home, and leader in the movement, contributed her Irish Stew).
Below is simple graph of the differences between the two groups:
So, if you didn’t know, now you do!
Save the Date! April 3rd from 12-4. The address forthcoming. The home is in Garvanza, our historic pocket of Highland Park.
In other news...We are sad to say the temporary homeless shelter set up by Rebecca Prine of Recycled Resources at the Episcopal Church on Monte Vista, in Highland Park is coming to an end. It was set up as a shelter from the El Niño, for the homeless in the area. We had the pleasure of feeding the group every Thursday evening. What began as an act of "filling a need," became an act of love. Our hearts were touched by the stories of their lives. Check out the Facebook page Terry created: Cookin' for the Homeless
Many people in the community joined in to contribute their time, and their love.
Last Saturday, we were treated to a Gratitude Breakfast by the community. They pooled food stamps, and cooked up a feast for all the volunteers. Here are a few images from our last visit, or visit out our Instagram page to see more.
We are so honored to have gotten the opportunity to be a part of this incredible experience. Our lives are changed because of it. We will continue to look for needs in our community to serve, in any way possible.
Real Estate News
After a bit of a sluggish period in our northeast neighborhoods, things are picking up once again. Inventory is still quite low, and due to low interest rates there are buyers-a-plenty. Below is graph of the last few years in Highland Park, CA. It stands as well for Atwater Village, Glassell Park, Montecito Heights and Eagle Rock.
We are looking specifically at the last 6 months. The highest point you see (in 3 years!) are pending sales in Sept. 2015, the lowest point (in all 3 years again) is January of this year. In between those two points it was very quiet. You will see in the next coming months the line going right back up. It's predicted to be another great year for sales. We are told "Winter is coming..." by some economic oracles. I don't think it's going to be spring and summer of this year, but we'll keep our eyes on it, and report back.
Speaking of market back on the rise, we have several really wonderful listings coming up this next month!
