A new RE/MAX SKY real estate boutique, complete with touch screen video displays, is set to hold its grand opening at 1425 H St. NE on Friday. Luxury brokers are drawn to the booming real estate market along H Street, the boutique’s owner and principal broker said.
“H Street is very hot right now,” said Cher Castillo Freeman. “With Whole Foods and other brand names moving in, more and more people will want to live, work and play on H Street.”
Castillo Freeman cited projections that there will be 1,200 new units in the area over the next two years. Her boutique will have RE/MAX’s luxury “Collection” division designation, meaning the office will target properties worth twice the average price in the area. The office will handle sales as well as rentals.
To celebrate the opening, Re/MAX SKY is holding an art soirée from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday. The event will showcase the work of local artists and photographers and will benefit the D.C. Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative. There will be drinks, appetizers and music from a local DJ.
Attendees are asked to RSVP online and make a suggested $10 donation at the door.
