Lee Davies bldgLee Davies Real Estate gets a new home

In March 2007, Lee Davies Real Estate purchased the building at 9200 SW Barnes Road. Conveniently located across the street from the main entrance to St. Vincent Hospital and in the center of our market area, this facility will serve as the flagship for our company.

With the help of LRS Architects, WRG Design and Yorke & Curtis Contractors, ground was broken for an extensive renovation this past January. When complete, our state of the art new home will capture the lure of the Pacific Northwest and will represent our vision to be the best full service Boutique Real Estate firm focusing on the West Hills, Sunset Corridor and West Suburban markets.

Bales employees cook up funds for charities

Every Saturday through Labor Day weekend Bales employees will be serving up barbecue lunches to raise money for local charities. CynDee Ross-Brockett, Bales employee and Starbucks manager, says store employees came up with the idea and that managers are volunteering their time as part of the effort. “It’s something we can do to give back to the community, and we believe that’s important,” Ross-Brockett said.

The menu will vary from week to week, but common items may include hamburgers, hot dogs, meat kabobs or ribs, served with a side of potato salad and a soft drink. Hot dogs will cost $3 a meal for one or $5 for two. Hamburgers will cost $4 for the meal.

They will be barbecuing every Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm, possibly longer if the weather is nice. They’ll also have outside seating on nice days.
