MARYAH’s 10th Annual Harvest Howl Recap

MARYAH’s 10th Annual Harvest Howl Recap

Metro Area Real Estate Professionals for Young Adult Housing (MARYAH) and The San Diego LGBT Community Center hosted the 10th Annual Harvest Howl in the Shiley Special Events Suite at the San Diego Central Library this past Thursday night. Once again, MARYAH didn’t disappoint!

MARYAH 10th Annual Harvest HowlFor the past 10 years, MARYAH has put on the Harvest Howl as a benefit for The San Diego LGBT Community Center’s Youth Housing Project. Returning to The Central Library for the second year, The Shiley Room provided a beautiful backdrop with views of Downtown San Diego and the Coronado Bridge.

Olympic Gold Medalist Greg Louganis and Councilmember Todd Gloria delivered fantastic keynote speeches respectively.

Excellent food options were provided by local favorites including Barrio Star, Metro Caravan host Lava Sushi, BFD, Phil’s BBQ and of course, the host of the Downtown San Diego Real Estate Broker Caravan, Meze Greek Fusion. Clarione Gutierrez entertained the audience with his live art as the night progressed. Little did anyone know that we were watching him paint a diver until the very end. Truly spectacular! Fellow American Pacific Mortgage colleague, Sean Aguirre returned to soothe the audience with his singing and DJ Manny Alfelor kept the attendees dancing throughout the night.

Congratulations to MARYAH for keeping the Harvest Howl tradition alive for the past 10 years! One can only imagine how many young lives have been changed as a result of the efforts of MARYAH each year.

Downtown Happenings

I have been out in the field a lot lately meeting with clients and realtors and there is buzz about San Diego right now.  There are a lot of people talking about the Fed’s decision to keep rates where they are and what that means.  Fed officials have decided to lower their forecast for inflation for the next few years.  By doing so mortgage rates dropped due to what the Fed expected from future inflation levels, these levels being key in setting the rates.  Recent inflation readings have supported what the Fed stated which has made investors willing to accept these lower rates. For prospective home buyers this is good news, rates actually ended the week lower.  Buyers that may have been on the fence before should now consider speaking with a mortgage professional to find out what they qualify for and take advantage of today’s low rates.

Another thing that people are talking about right now is the new exhibit Rethink Downtown.  This exhibition, which is being put on by Bosa Development gives the public a look behind Downtown and where it came from.  It will also give people a look at what is to come in Downtown San Diego’s future.  There will be drawings, photos, models, and video’s to give a real feel of the city.  This exhibition opens this coming Saturday September 26th from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Rethink Gallery at 700 First Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.  Head to Rethink Downtown’s website for more information on this great event.
