Good Eats… 
Spend an evening outside in a Bohemian tent at Compass Rose, and travel around the world without getting up from your table. Be sure to try the Instagram-worthy Georgian Khachapuri and their Bolivian rose, new for the summer.

Make Your Move… 
On the fence about buying or selling? We are at the peak of the buying season, and 2019 is proving to be a great year to buy and sell!  According to a recent Forbes article the average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage dropped down to 3.82%.  Lower interest rates = greater spending power for buyers 
and increased equity for sellers! 
Don’t play the waiting game, take advantage of the market now. Learn More
