I hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe, all things considered.
Below are some tips and helpful links to make the most of virtual living and support our local businesses.
The Real Estate market is slowing down and agents are being encouraged not to show properties during this isolation period. However, there are still buyers and sellers and open escrows thanks to technologies like Zoom and Blue Jeans that are allowing me to do my job. Virtual walk-throughs are being encouraged and the industry as a whole is working together to come up with creative solutions.
I would love to hear from you to find out what you are doing to keep positive, busy, and connected while remaining safe at home.
Some of my favorite places for curbside takeout…
El Alma’s curbside features family-sized meal options, a limited food menu, margarita set-ups, mango mimosa kits, beer, and wine to-go!
The Peached Tortilla Burnet Rd location is currently offering new curbside meals to-go in addition to their regular a la carte take-out order menu. All proceeds go to payroll.
Brentwood Social House is offering beer and wine (40% off!) along with their delicious food menu for curbside pickup. Call ahead 8am-3pm.
Mi Madre’s is offering to-go deliveries, which include margaritas and toilet paper (only for orders over $50), via phone calls. All proceeds will go towards paying its staff.
