2014 Annual Lawrenceville Artists’ Studio Tour

10th Annual Lawrenceville Artists’ Studio Tour

The Annual Lawrenceville Artists’ Studio Tour will be celebrating its 10th year this Saturday, November 8th. Spend the day conversing with on site artists about their work and creative process. Over 30 artists will be participating so if you enjoy talking art with the artists, this is the place to be. Plus it’s free! This event is always packed and it’s fun to see the amazing work of the artists but I live there and my daughter’s an artist so I’m a bit biased. Here’s the map & link for more info.

Thanksgiving Season Is Here

With the Thanksgiving season upon us, it’s that time of year where we start thinking about family and what it means to us. This trailer of the Roberts Family captures the love of family beautifully. Created by Cabana Pictures (my uber talented daughter and son-in-law), I wanted to share this again. Happy Thanksgiving!

Downtown, Neighborhoods

New Year and New Introduction to Downtown Pittsburgh

Hello, 2014!

The new year is a time when many of us plan for the future, make resolutions, & create goals. Right before the new year begins, many of us reflect on the past year and it’s safe to say that 2013 has been quite the memorable one for Pittsburgh. The city had a slew of exciting events from the Pittsburgh Pirates making it their first winning year since 1992, to the arrival of the giant 40ft rubber duckie in Pittsburgh.

It was also a year where Pittsburgh made the top 10 in a number a lists, including Livability’s Top 10 best places to retire.  You hear that, Florida?  Farmers Insurance Group also placed us in their 2013  list of the “Most Secure Places To Live In The U.S.” This recent post in the Huffington Post titled What Pittsburgh Can Teach The Rest Of The Country About Living Well certainly gives those of us living in Pittsburgh bragging ammo.

So do you think you want to make Pittsburgh home in 2014? After making that decision, which is absolutely a great one, the next step is choosing a neighborhood in this vibrant city.

That’s where I come in and am definitely ready to help!  There are several choices so let’s start in Downtown Pittsburgh, also known as the Golden Triangle.

Downtown Pittsburgh has undergone a huge renaissance in the past few years with increased housing options (sales & rentals) and new restaurants and shops. You can also walk to all of the major stadiums, Heinz Field, PNC Park & Consol Energy Center, to cheer on your favorite teams or enjoy the latest show. When it comes to housing, condos in downtown Pittsburgh are considered bargains when compared to other cities throughout the country and because downtown faces two rivers, you can find a condo that provides beautiful river views to enjoy when at home. Some of the condominium projects downtown include 151 First Side, Gateway Towers, Piatt Place, The Residences, The Carlyle, 941 Penn and Otto Milk. Downtown residents can also enjoy a number of perks such as discounted parking and new construction tax abatements. The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership website has loads of information and resources on downtown living. If this is the year where you will make Pittsburgh home and you need to discuss your options, just email, call or text me. Happy New Year!Lourdes MatamorosleavesUntitled-2
