Living in a town with public art gives a community personality, culture, and “pop!” Art pieces around a city just make it feel more alive and look more eclectic.

We’ll ask Wendy Hickey how she merged her career in outdoor advertising — yes, billboards — with her love of art, to create the public sensation called “ArtPOP.”
If you want a total stranger to fall in love with your home so much that they want to buy it, or you want to enjoy the home you’re in but adapt it to lifestyle changes, tastes, or need… what improvements would you make and how do you decide?

Dr. Michael Sass helps first time homeowners do the math to develop economic self-sufficiency and peace of mind via the non-profit Catalyst Academy.
Seventeen years, millions of dollars, and untold lives touched. That’s quite a track record for any charitable event.

Lisa Dale and Brittany Wilson from the 24 Foundation join us on this edition of Charlotte Real Estate Talk with Pridemore Properties.
