Happy summer!! Here is the link to Sotheby’s Auctions (upcoming and past) for a quick browse.

DC is almost open for business, with many stores and restaurants opening this week. We are starting to see -- in person at a distance-- some wonderful neighbors we love, and we sincerely hope that the healthy trend here continues. Slow and steady wins this race.

Our calendar partners are featuring listings in their locations; have a look at their links, and in addition, we are featuring two lovely penthouse listings here in DC in the Meridian Hill neighborhood:

1454 Belmont St NW #15

***

1454 Belmont St NW #16

For a superb yin yoga workout that leaves you feeling like you just had a massage + brain transplant, try the offerings with Yael Flusberg, yogi extraordinaire.

Our new organic garden is thriving, so soon we will have veggies to share, as well as extra persimmons in the fall; if anyone has interest, let us know.

Much love to all,

Sheryl and Harry

PS: Clara and Mari, YOU GO GIRLS ON THOSE MCATS!!! XOXO
