This week we have loaded our *sleigh (blog) with our “nice-list” of things to do in Omaha this December. Holiday Harmony When: Nov. 22, Nov. 24-26, and… Read More

The Heart of a Renovation

History of The W. F. Negele House: William F. Negele and his wife commissioned architect W.E. Findlein to design this home for $6,000 in 1905. At the time, William served as the secretary to the Thompson & Belden Co. department store in downtown Omaha at 16th and Howard streets – in Omaha. Thompson & Belden was… Read More

Summa, Summa, Summertime!

Even though the temperatures we’ve endured make it seem like we are in the middle of July, next Thursday is officially the first day of Summer! Grab your sunscreen, sunglasses (preferably a pair from PJ Morgan Real Estate) and this list of top 10 things to do in Omaha with your kids! Henry Doorly Zoo: Unless… Read More

The 411 On An HOA

Homeowner’s Associations… some instantly cringe at the thought of hearing those two words.  With over 69 million Americans living in common interest communities, many homeowners don’t really understand how they work and what they can do to make their community better. What is a Homeowner’s Association: A homeowner’s association (HOA) is an organization in a… Read More

Get Your Grove On!

After several years immersed in the fashion industry, jet-setting around the world and hopping from one hotel to the next, Meghann Schense needed a change. She traded in her stilettos and designer luggage for fruits and veggies. Wait, what??? It sounds a bit crazy, but with her demanding work schedule, Meghann literally lived out of… Read More

Charity And A Side Of Chili

What’s better than charity and a good bowl of chili? Not much! Every November, team members at PJ Morgan Real Estate grab their shiniest ladle, their tastiest chili recipe and get to work… all in the name of charity! The winner of our chili cook-off has, in addition to bragging rights and a shiny trophy,… Read More

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

Look What’s Coming!

If you’ve read my blog posts before, you know they usually come with a long story and lots of text.  This time you’re in for a treat… less rambling and more photos! Because we manage neighboring properties, we were given the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the new Film Streams Dundee Theater and… Read More

The Power Of The Past

Often life moves so quickly that we hardly have time to catch our breath, let alone reflect on our past – the people and experiences who have molded us into the people we are today. I was recently reminded of my grandparents – not that I never think about them, but the last living grandparent… Read More

Be The Ball

Hey, sports fans! The wind and leaves on the course didn’t stop us from having a great time golfing last week. It did, however, make locating the balls we hit quite challenging. Nonetheless, when you combine golf, great people, an adult beverage (or two), raffle prizes and an amazing charity, there isn’t too much to… Read More

My West O

Originally a South O girl, everything I needed was within 20 square blocks. The idea of living in Elkhorn never even crossed my mind. Now… I can’t imagine my life any other way – Elkhorn is where I call HOME! Now that I have been living in Elkhorn for a few years, I realized how… Read More

Challenge: Are You Ready?

For those of you who know me, you know I’m slightly competitive… I love to challenge P.J. to a spontaneous game of ping-pong (and have even beat him a few times, which he denies to this day). Unfortunately, I’ve never had the chance to challenge him to a game of golf… until now. With that… 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

A Walk in the Park

I love this time of year (and not just because it’s spring in real estate). 🙂 Almost every day, we wake up to blue skies and beautiful weather, so I’m always looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors before it gets cold again. I love spending time at the lake or riding my bike, but… 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

Thanks + Giving

In my post-Thanksgiving week coma, I’ve been reminiscing about my wonderfully delicious holiday. I gobbled up a ton of food and helped create a truly stunning table setting (if I do say so myself). On Thanksgiving Day, while the rest of my family was sharing what they are thankful for, I was eyeballing my second… 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

Work It

If you are what you eat, do you become what you’ve learned? I’m no philosopher, but I’ve been wondering about this question. I’ve spent the past 10 years in real estate, happy to call it “work,” as it is much more fulfilling than the word implies. I feel truly lucky to be passionate about my… Read More
