The real estate market in Columbus is rebounding and we’ve been busier than ever. Here’s a gallery of recent transactions – sold homes that we’ve been honored to either represent the buyer or the seller in recent months.
The 1271 Interchange project is is vital to the City of Worthington, as it will bring much-needed improvements designed to decrease congestion and improve traffic flow and safety of the interchange and surrounding roadways. It will also greatly improve access to the City through its northern gateway for businesses, residents and visitors to our community. It also has the potential to be mighty inconvenient too if you live or work in the area.

It may the most seldom-used room in your home right now, but come holiday Season, your guest bedroom gets a lot of attention. So no matter how long it’s been since you’ve actually opened the door to that neglected room, there’s still plenty of time to make your guest room more inviting.
Follow these tips to help make your guests feel right at home:
1) A Better Bed: When we purchase a new bed for the master bedroom, the old one usually ends up down the hall in the guest room. But there’s a cost effective way to upgrade that old bed without replacing the mattress. A memory foam mattress topper can take your old mattress to a whole new level of comfort, without busting your budget.
2) Fresh Linens: There’s nothing like slipping under crisp, clean sheets after a long day. Make sure your linens and blankets are freshly laundered, and always keep an extra blanket or comforter within reach during the colder winter months.
3) Separate Living Space: Houseguests appreciate a quiet spot to catch up on emails, wind down with a good book, or just relax after a day of non-stop activity. Add a recliner or an arm chair to the guest room to create a cozy private space.
4) Drawer Space: It’s hard to feel “at home” when you’re living out of a suitcase. Clear out a few dresser drawers to give houseguests the option of storing their clothes and belongings.
5) Special Touches: Take a cue from five-star hotels and put out fresh flowers, a soft robe, and maybe even a mint on your guest’s pillow! Little details make a huge impression!
Students Return to a New, Innovative Science Curriculum
Upper Arlington’s Wellington School welcomed 115 new students this school year, boosting the school’s enrollment to one of the largest in school history.
Head of School Robert Brisk says enrollment is 650 students, and has created a need for an additional kindergarten class and waiting lists for several grades.
The school is also implementing a new science curriculum, which will give Upper School students a chance to work in the Wellington Research Institute.
The new curriculum is a change that science teachers hope will better prepare students to pursue research in the scientific fields of their choice.
The four new science courses include: ecology of Ohio, infectious disease microbiology, atmospheric chemistry and marine biology.
Marine Biology may be one of the more popular selections for students because it includes SCUBA training and optional SCUBA certification. Perhaps the real draw of this class for students though, is an optional trip to the Grand Caymans to put those SCUBA skills to use.
