New Breakfast Dining Concept Coming to Homewood

System - Wednesday, February 10, 2016

We are so proud of this new lease with Holler & Dash. It's been "hush hush" since Greg Hess at The Shopping Center Group introduced us to them in May 2015. We were able to sign a lease with them back in August 2015. It appears they are starting to hit the social media, and have put up temporary signage onsite.

They plan to open their first restaurant right here in Homewood, Alabama!!! They already have multiple other locations scheduled to open later in 2016 across the Southeast.

2801 18th Street South - a historical, beautiful brick corner building - will be the first location for Holler & Dash. Check out their Twitter as they start to present their biscuits & brand to the world.

Chip Presents NAR Excellence Award

System - Sunday, January 10, 2016

Remember when Chip took that trip to France way back in March of 2015?   Well we do, and so does The National Association of REALTORS, as they recognized the Birmingham Commercial REALTORS Council with the Accredited Commercial Excellence Award.  As the NAR Director for the State of Alabama, Chip was proud to present this years award to BCRC President Tim Blair.

The trip to the 2015 MIPIM Real Estate Conference in Cannes, France was part of a mission by the Birmingham Commercial REALTORS Council to bring foreign industry and development dollars to Birmingham, Alabama. The Birmingham Association of REALTORS was one of a select group of U.S Associations that accompanied and represented the United States at the conference with NAR. While there, leadership from Birmingham held meetings and conversations with international developers and investors about Birmingham projects and municipalities. The Association has been invited back to accompany NAR along with more Associations in 2016.

As an ACE award winner, BCRC will be receiving an education grant for $1,000 to continue the Excellence achieved and to help provide commercial education to BCRC membership.

David Donates Over 200 DVD Movies To YMCA Camp Cosby

System - Wednesday, November 4, 2015

If you've ever experienced being a camp counselor during the summer months, then you know how important that time away from the cabin can be.  It can be a time to regenerate your spirits, a time for some to catch up on much needed rest, and for some a time to escape in a good book or short movie. That's were David comes in.

Through the years, before there was streaming services, if you wanted to watch a movie you had three options; the theater, what ever was on television at the time, or DVDs.  Since camp is usually a place where streaming service and cable don't exist and the nearest theater is an hour away, DVDs are obviously the most convenient and David had quite the extensive library after 7 years of managing Blockbuster and Movie Gallery stores.  So before this summer started David donated a TV, DVD player, and 200+ DVD movies to YMCA Camp Cosby.  As you can see from the "Thank You" poster it was definitely well received.

David is currently the Chair of the Board for YMCA Camp Cosby.
