Summer Social – Meet Your Neighbors

Summer’s in full swing and we’re always asked about the best way to meet the neighbors. Well, we’re taking the guessing work out of it for you. Here are our 5 ‘Must Do’s’ when it comes to being the social neighbor.

1) Introduce Yourself When You’re Settled In: It can be a little awkward smiling across the way when you’re the new guy in town, but taking some initiative will take the guessing work out of the silent exchanges.

2) Be Prepared: Since you’re new to the neighborhood, people are bound to ask you the ‘W’s’. Where’d you move from? Who’s living with you? Being prepared to answer accordingly will help ease the nerves of the first conversation.

3) Be the Host: Now that you’re moved in and organized, invite people to stop by one night for a hot dog (or beer). A cookout now may just win you neighbor of the year and some long-lasting friends.

4) Be Courteous: Don’t be the neighbor that throws a giant, loud party the first week you move or cranks up the lawn mower at 6AM on a Saturday. That will begin to shape the rest of your relationship while living there. A simple way to think about it is, don’t do what you feel would potentially bother you!

5) Ask for Advice: Your neighbors have lived there longer, so a good way to break the ice is to ask for advice. What’s a good lawn care service? Around what time does trash pick up come? Do you recommend a good plowing company? It shows you’re planning on being a good home owner, and gives you an excuse to chat!

Here is a link to our recent newsletter where we talk about meeting the neighbors. Check it out! 

Old Days to New Ways: Featuring Kelly M.

Hello Homes is #blessed to have seriously amazing clients.  On top of just being great people, some of them are also super handy! In this series, we are showcasing a client that saw the potential in their space and took advantage of it.  Let’s begin…

Kelly M. knew that downtown was where she HAD to be.  Thus, our search began.  After looking at a few different buildings, she narrowed her search on the infamous Union Square.  Character, size, location, and price all aligned with her vision.  When we listed the unit that is now hers, she knew she had to act fast. After only a handful of days on the market, Kelly submitted an offer and a month later, she was the proud new owner.

HH: What was the one thing that drew you to this condo?

K.M: There were way more than just one! This history of the building was what first drew me in. Then, once I saw the actual unit, it was the openness of the whole place- the high ceilings and the 15 foot windows blew me away. And the spiral staircase of course! 

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 4.14.58 PM

HH: What was one thing you couldn’t wait to change?

K.M: The countertops! And the carpeting in the loft upstairs. 

Condo After

HH: What piece of your remodel do your guests love the most?

K.M: Definitely the mural. I’m not sure if it’s considered a “remodel” but it’s certainly the piece in the unit with the most character.

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 4.14.47 PM

HH: What projects were DIY and what did you hire a contractor for?

K.M: I ripped up the carpet in the loft and laid hardwood, painted a few walls, and tiled the kitchen backsplash myself. The only thing I hired out was the countertops and the mural.

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 4.15.25 PM

HH: Where do you enjoy spending most of your time in your new remodel?

K.M: In the living room/kitchen area. It’s so open and my view of the Westside is the best.
