It’s been quite a year here at Nook, and all thanks to you. We ended 2016 with the excellent news that renowned illustrator Michael Nÿkamp designed icons made just for the elegance and style that you love out of Nook and our experts in real estate. Since then, our team has grown with only the best, and we began publishing stories to be sure you don’t overlook any of the people, places or properties that make life worth it.
After six months of bringing you Tastemaker Tuesday, Nook Neighborhoods and Fast Facts Friday, we looked back at the blogs you enjoyed reading the most.
It was our biggest news of 2017, and we’re so glad you were as excited about the new real estate app upgrade as we were. With multiple layers of algorithms to ensure that your style, needs and personality are literally at your fingertips, once you go Search With Style©, you’ll never go back.
It’s no surprise why our readers flocked to this luxury corner unit at West Ocean Towers. Downtown Long Beach is the new place to be, and loyal Nook readers have known it for a while. Not only is it just an hour’s commute from Los Angeles, but spectacular views of The Queen Mary mean that you’ll offer to host those dinners for the special clients as well.
Our third most read blog was also very recent. We’re glad you loved this blog about Long Beach Opera, as it epitomizes some of the beauty and community of Long Beach. They use the arts to highlight areas of their favorite city, which we already know has much more than meets the eye. The Long Beach Opera emphasizes its city and The City of Long Beach supports them; it’s a perfect combination of art and civics and community.
I don’t know if you could tell how much we love local businesses, local breweries and especially Eagle Rock Brewery. Our story last August starts down an alley in Glassell Park with a bright orange door, where a substitute teacher, rocket scientist and theme park designer walk into a bar and play trivia over homebrew. From there, the family grew and gained much community goodwill as they expanded into their actual hometown of Eagle Rock with a high class restaurant.
This story is where we learned there are over 1200 haunts in the United States, all just aching to scare the Halloween out of you. We traced the need to be scared back to coming of age rituals through why Victorians make great haunted houses and now onto Instagram. Which one’s your favorite?
We invite you to follow along as we take you through many of our favorite Nook Neighborhoods, meeting our favorite Tastemakers and having fun with fast facts! That is why we take time the time, and that connection with you made 2017 more meaningful to us. Thank you for reading and we’ll see you in 2018!
