Zen In Real Estate

zen-budismo3Zen In Real Estate

In my life’s journey, I have found that it is best to treat people how you want to be treated.  Those who get it, really, really appreciate it.

It is about…
…doing business above board and on your own terms.
…doing what is right and not necessarily what is easy.
…reading people and understanding their perspectives.
…empathy for situations and understanding limitations.
…communication and comfort.
…having connections that have the same level of customer care.
…life and the bigger picture.

I know I’m going philosophical here; but, we are all connected.  We are all intertwined.  We want people who can and will relate to us and our philosophies…  Whether we know it, understand it, or even can put our fingers on it – we want to feel taken care of by those who take responsibility.

King-Lincoln District

One of the up and coming communities in Columbus, Ohio, is the King-Lincoln District.  Rehabbers, investors, and homeowners alike are finding out about the charm and grandeur of this district which is rich in African American History, the jazz scene in the 20th Century, and beautiful architecture.

Thanks to the I71 construction in the 1960’s, the King-Lincoln District was cut off and left to die.  The lack of access to downtown Columbus hurt this community in so many ways.  It drove away businesses and then it drove away the people.  However, in 2014 the city of Columbus finished the Long Street bridge to revitalize this area and bring people back to this once thriving community.


Initiatives such as Homeport and the Long Street Bridge are bringing back people to the urban Columbus area.  The Kings Art Complex, the Lincoln Theater, and the revitalization of the Jazz Scene are bringing people back to King-Lincoln. 

Take a peek at the slideshow of the recent photos I have taken of the area.  You can see the recovery in progress.
