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

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

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

Looking back, it’s rather ironic that I ended up with a career in real estate, but that’s another topic for another time. As you probably know, UNO’s campus is… 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
