A New Home For The Children’s Place

By | No Comments

After over 30 years of helping KC area children dealing with trauma, The Children’s Place has moved to a new larger home, and AREA is grateful for the opportunity to help them with this transition. They have moved from the corner of 59th & Brookside Boulevard just over a mile to 65th & Rockhill Road.

AREA’s assistance in the real estate transaction was as rewarding of an experience as we have ever had. Ann Thomas and her team tirelessly work to serve a community in need and for years they worked in an outdated facility that was too small. AREA agents, Adam Abrams & Mike Levitan helped the team to find a new, larger building. The main requirement was the need to be located on the bus line and closer to the kids that they serve. Nothing on the market at the time was going to work and fortunately we found something off market that checked all the boxes.

Not only do they now have enough room to serve the kids, but the staff now have the type of facility that makes their job just a bit easier. They also have a new 5-foot welcome teddy bear named Rudy, after a beloved retired teacher of 42 years, Rudy Liggins.

In addition to our business relationship with this wonderful organization, our company has been fortunate to partner with The Children’s place over the last 2 years on a philanthropic level. It has been such a rewarding experience to see first hand the impact being made by TCP and to play just a small part in helping these children in our community.

Congratulations to The Children’s Place and welcome home!

New Client Takes Current Client’s Space

By | No Comments

It’s not often that the stars align and a new client takes a current client’s space!  We are so excited for these 2 clients of ours, and to be able to be a part of the changes they are making for their businesses.

Golden & Pine, a local interiors boutique now located in Brookside East, is expanding their space and moving into the Prairie Village Shops, next to the newly opened Caffetteria Restaurant. Their new larger shop will offer more furniture, a wedding registry wall, a continued strong plant presence and lots of natural light. Chanee Vijay, a textile design studio out of Manhattan Beach, California is relocating their studio and showroom to Golden & Pine’s former space at 63rd & Holmes. Chanee Vijay hand prints, dyes and sews textiles. Every pillow, wall hanging and bed cover is one of a kind.

Both locations will open later this summer. If you would like to know more about these shops, you can check out their web sites- goldenandpine.com and chaneevijay.com.

AREA’s Tiffany Ruzicka represented both Golden & Pine and Chanee Vijay in their transactions.

We love working with talented clients like these women!
