Anyone had any experience buying and selling with Redfin?

We’ve been talking to Redfin agents about buying and selling through them. We met one agent for a tour and she seemed very knowledgeable and responsive! However, we haven’t gotten very far into the process yet.

Has anyone would had any experience with their buying and selling services? Would love to know the good and the bad.

Artistic talent needed

I am doing a book for my nieces and nephews about their grandmother who passed away before they were born and would love to have some illustrations done to go along with the book. Does anyone have any interest or know of someone? I am open on the price range. Would love to have this done by September if possible. Hired a writer a few years ago so the story parts are done.

Charging Electric Cars for Street Parkers

Hi,

We live in Brookland and only have access to street parking in front of our house. I’d like to buy a little electric car like a Nissan Leaf, but I’m not sure how I’d charge it. Is anyone aware of a city program to make car charging easier? Does anyone have an electric car and charge it somewhere other than through their garage?

Thanks!

Brandon

Found/Spotted – Cat Gray and White

Found this adorable cat on my way home but couldn’t get a good still image of him, so I took a video. I saw him on Park Road Northwest between 14th and 16th at 7pm on Thursday January 31. He looks really healthy, good size, probably a young adult male, with gray and white markings. He was incredibly friendly and wanted to be pet, makes me think he has a home or at least lived inside at some point. He could be a stray, but I didn’t see a clipped ear or indication that he didn’t have a home.

I can’t upload the video because its too large, and tried doing a screen grab from it but the cat moves too fast to get a clear snapshot. Here’s the link to the dropbox file (I know, mysterious link not enticing, sorry)

In Time for Valentine's Day – searching for Damiana Liqueur

I read this article about Damiana Liqueur as an aphrodisiac: http://thewhatlist.com/the-aphrodisiac-damiana/

Thought it might make a fun valentine’s day gift for friends (and SO). Anyone know where I might find it in DC or the surrounding area? Having a hard time finding a retailer online that will ship.

Vandalism @ Sasha Bruce House

Hi all,

I live on Maryland Avenue NE and yesterday noticed someone had vandalized the Sasha Bruce House, most likely on Saturday night. On the second story someone had spray painted a bunch of swastikas. The Sasha Bruce House is a group home providing help and guidance to homeless teenagers. If you’re interested, the Washington Post did a great piece on it a few months ago. The vandalism is horrible, and has left me with a feeling of uneasiness- being in a liberally dominant environment like DC has made me feel safer and away from hatred associated with Donald Trump, but this isn’t the case anymore.

Here’s my question, and it feels a little silly- what can I do? I’m donating money to the charity on their site but am wondering if anyone knows how vandalism gets dealt with in DC. Is the home in charge of paying for it to be removed? Does it make sense to call and ask?

Found near Logan Circle on Rhode Island Ave: Silver bracelet with silver medallion charm denoting 25 years as an auxiliary lifetime member (organization not mentioned). Pls contact popville if this is yours and I’ll get it to you. There are two sets of initials on the charm–please include the initials to claim.
