Pacific Union celebrates 6 months in LA’s coolest neighborhood: Highland Park
Dubbed one of the world’s coolest neighborhoods, Highland Park is attracting more L.A. homebuyers than ever before. The attraction might have something to do with the hub of handsome cocktail bars, foodie-approved cafés, and updated vintage venues like Highland Park Bowl and Lodge Room. The leafy NELA neighborhood has transformed into a walker’s paradise, with our office at the center of the action. 

Since opening in Highland Park in February of this year, Pacific Union real estate professionals have represented a significant number of homes in the area, accounting for $100 million in sales volume. The average sales price in Highland Park has increased just over 18 percent, from $750,933 in June through August 2017 to $886,526 in June through August 2018.

Real estate professionals, esteemed clients, and community members joined together to celebrate the six month anniversary Thursday, Sept. 27, with a fundraiser to benefit Photo Friends LA 501c(3) and the installation of a new mural in the heart of Highland Park. 

Guests enjoyed live music, craft cocktails from The Blind Barber, art gallery and silent auction. Renowned artist Frank Romero, the local painter commissioned to complete the mural, was in attendance. As Romero is not planning on painting many more murals at this point in his career, this is a rare opportunity to display his art in the community that was the birthplace of his work.

Pacific Union has partnered with Council District 1 to fund the project. By having the mural on city property the mural will be protected and preserved for the foreseeable future.

“The reason we are working with the community on this mural project is because there is no one artist that represents Northeast Los Angeles like the legendary Frank Romero,” said Bill Cody, Field Deputy for Council District 1 (Highland Park and Mount Washington).

If you would like to contribute to the mural project, monetary donations are graciously welcomed. Contact Marci Viviano (marciviviano@pacunionla.com).
