A chat with Aileen Pasquel, Realtor

Posted on: August 4, 2017

Where are you working today / where are your appointments?

I have been working in various neighborhoods throughout the city, from Market East, Graduate Hospital, Art Museum Area, South Philly, and North East. Society Hill will be coming soon. I focus on the areas that will match my buyers needs. Certain neighborhoods have specific amenities to satisfy needs. Also, certain architecture only exist in certain areas. Then consider close to transportation and always price. With investors, there are other parts of the city to work within, depending on their end use.

A chat with Marissa Brooks, Realtor

Where are you working today / where are your appointments?

All over! I spent the morning in West Philly, quick stop in Mt Airy, the afternoon in Port Richmond, and happy home to my fam in South Kensington.

What is your favorite on-the-go lunch choice?

Reading terminal all the way. So many great stalls to choose from! Some days a piece of cheese from Downtown Cheese and a baguette from Metropolitan OR Four Seasons Juice Bar (next to Market Blooms) and a pretzel from Miller’s twist.

Do you have a favorite new local restaurant or business that you are really excited about?

PlayArts at Front and Thompson opened in September and it is a wonderful business! It is a beautifully rehabbed old municipal pool building turned into a spectacular play space complete with sensory, art, music, and dance classes. From infants on up, it is a great addition to the neighborhood.

What is your favorite part of being a realtor?

Helping people take the next step in their lives. In my experience, physically moving is usually a manifestation of change in life, and it isn’t always young people starting fresh or growing into a “dream home”(though that is really fun!). Sometimes it’s because of death, divorce, retirement, or downsizing. A house can come to symbolize so many very personal things for people; a loved one that resided in it, a relationship that may not have worked out, a space that whole generations of a family have been raised in… It isn’t always an easy thing to do, but it is extremely rewarding. The purchase or sale of real estate is a very empowering experience.
