L’ABEYE- Lifestyle Fashion Brand

I am loving this new site, launched by our neighbor, Naomie Olindo, who has combined her eye for fashion, personal style and sharp business acumen to bring us something special!

L’ABEYE /luh-bei/, is a lifestyle brand specializing in privately labeled apparel for fresh, motivated women. A unique fashion movement with a twist.

And here is something I love about Naomie’s creative process…. she uses local models, local marketing interns, and more.  And speaking of keeping it local?  Check out her photos taken at our own Pitt Street Pharmacy!  Simply stunning!  And be sure to follow them on Instagram!

iParent Education

Local parent, neighbor, and social media educator, Jennifer Bilbro, started iParent Education to bridge the technology communication gap. She wants to empower parents to keep children safe, connect with them through technology, and guide them to be good digital citizens. Parents don’t have to know (nor do they need to know) everything about technology, but we cannot afford to bury our head in the sand and hope for the best.

Most parents are challenged by technology and the influence it has on our children. The constant connection to friends through social media or even a vlogger that share videos daily, often takes precedence over our influence. Jennifer addresses today’s technology advances and trends in a language parents can understand. She provides tips and tricks on how to communicate with your tech child and understand what they are doing on devices.

Mt. Pleasant Real Estate Market update

The National Associate Of Realtors has released the sales numbers for the first half of 2018, and they paint a picture of a healthy and consistent market when compared to the same time frame in 2017 and 2016.

Here is a quick snapshot to compare sales from Jan 1 to July 31, 2016-2018, for single family homes, located in Mt. Pleasant, South of the Isle of Palms Connector:

Although the number of homes sold is down slightly (from 757 sold in 2016 to 723 in 2018), the average sales price continues to be on the rise (from $602,000 in 2016 to $674,000 in 2018).

In 2018, homes are averaging 51 Days on the Market, which is relatively a short time frame.  But beware… homes that are sitting on the market over the average may need to reassess their strategy, whether it be by making changes to the home’s condition or reviewing price.  This is where a trusted professional can come in handy.

If you are thinking about buying or selling, it always makes sense to connect with a Realtor who specializes in your target market.  I have been selling homes in the area for years, and happy to help you achieve success.  Please feel free to contact me at Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.com for a consultation today.
