One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

As I was brainstorming ideas for blogs to write, I realized that what I do and the people I meet are pretty fascinating. I decided the best way to capitalize on my everyday interactions is to share them with you. Let me start by telling you about the man behind a perfectly curated salvage company… Read More

Love for Little Bohemia

It’s been a minute since I’ve filled you up with some Little Bohemia love, so I thought it might be a good time to give everyone an update… Since we began this project, some incredible things have happened. As with any major renovation project, there has been some good, some bad and some very ugly…. Read More

The Cherry On Top

Earning an award is always on my “to do” list. I love the thrill of going the extra mile to achieve more and being recognized for my efforts is the cherry on top! That’s why I was so excited when the time came for PJ Morgan Real Estate to celebrate several of our colleagues at… Read More

I’d Rather Write About His Dog

I have known artist Watie White for what seems like a lifetime now. I had the pleasure of leasing him his first studio in Little Bohemia approximately 10 years ago. If you haven’t heard of Watie White, do yourself a favor and Google him now. I will not even attempt to describe his work or style;… Read More

Actually, I Can

I’ve been asked to write about this topic before but have always shied away from it for various reasons. First, I didn’t know if I had enough experience and second, I don’t truly identify with the topic. Let me explain… My first instinct isn’t to describe myself as a “woman” in commercial real estate. I… Read More

Studio C

Once an Italian grocery store, the quaint structure at 805 Hickory Street has more history and nostalgia within its unique walls than most realize. Located in the heart of Little Italy, the building was built in 1905 by the Caniglia family (Mr. C) as a grocery store. Over the years, it was also home to… Read More

Passion Project

Spanning two years, Ryan Ellis and I have had an ongoing conversation about public art. We’ve both long admired neighborhoods throughout the world that incorporate it in creative ways. Public art creates a sense of place… an enhanced connection to its surroundings, and we have wanted that for Omaha, but really didn’t know where we… Read More

Little Bohemia’s First Soldier

I’ve written about 13th Street in a previous blog, but to refresh your memory and give you a little more detail… About a year and a half ago, PJ Morgan Real Estate was lucky to acquire three buildings just south of 13th & William Streets. When we bought them, we really hadn’t a clue what… Read More

Who Knew It Was So Cool?

Many of you have noticed the redevelopment project currently underway on 10th and Mason Streets (across from KETV Burlington Station). It’s a little structure called the Rail and Commerce Building. Lucky for you (and us!), I am able to share an inside view of its redevelopment. But first, a little history behind this trapezoid-shaped building and… Read More

Say “Yes” to YES

Every year, P.J. Morgan Real Estate holds a chili cook-off. I entered the contest this year for the sole purpose of beating Derick Lewin, another commercial agent in our office. And I did, of course… Please forgive my smugness – Derick and I both work in sales and are wickedly competitive. 🙂 Trophy in hand,… Read More

Why South Downtown Is Worth Your Downtime

Image by Kent Sievers via OWH When our marketing intern, Maggie Koenig, recently asked me “What’s in South Downtown?” I was totally appalled. Then I remembered… I may have said the same thing about Bennington to REALTOR Crystal Archer… who lives in Bennington. So, to convert Maggie into another die hard lover of South Downtown,… Read More

Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign

In my last blog post, I discussed my love of South Downtown and Little Bohemia. I left out 10th Street and Little Italy – on purpose. They stand so proudly on their own. I began working on 10th Street a little over a year ago, when Ryan Ellis and Susan Clark so kindly asked me… Read More

The Believers

A fascination with historic buildings, underground places, interesting architecture and unique characters has led to our series, The Unexpected. Check out Sales & Leasing Agent Colleen Mason’s take on the many facets of Omaha. Most Omahans refer to it as 13th Street, the street so many see blur by at 45 mph, to and from downtown… Read More
