CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) announced that it was the top-ranked real estate company on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Company roster for the third consecutive year. It is the ninth year that CBRE has been named a Fortune Most Admired Company.

We know marble can get expensive though and it is porous so can be slightly high maintenance, however, there are some fabulous marble-effect designs that you can use instead.

1. Create a focal point with a marble sink

This beautiful marble double Belfast sink is the star of the show in this marble kitchen. Its grey veining adds a decorative aspect and as the worktop has a very subtle pattern together with the splashback, it ensures the sink stands out. The brass rail, tap and copper accessories give the scheme a warm glow against the black units.

2. Add marble to a contemporary kitchen 

This sleek glossy modern kitchen is a great example of how to team classic marble with a contemporary look. The colours in the worktop and splashback are subtle and we love how it carries on through

Greenwich Real Estate Guy’s Blog: Open House List January 31

This post was contributed by a community member. The views expressed here are the author’s own.

I hope this post finds everyone’s year off to a good start and on the way to a fulfilling year. As most readers can tell I try not to get too personal here. However, every now and then, I get impacted by something and feel it is necessary to share. For those of you who did not have the opportunity to listen to the country’s first National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman speak, I felt it was worth sending. The 22 year old amazed me with her poem and oration. I hope you enjoy The Hill We Climb.

The question I get asked most often is how is the market. Here is a little snapshot of the market as of January for all of Greenwich:

  • 62 homes sold in January, an 88{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} increase over January 2020.
  • Average DOM of homes sold in January was 163 days.
  • Total $$ volume in January was $198,350,500 vs. $87,740,088 last January.

Here are some great gardening newsletters for your winter reading list

I get way too many garden-related emails. I must be on almost every single list. Among those are a number of newsletters. During the course of a year, lots of these pop up in my email. I usually read and then delete, but often there is something worth keeping so I just copy and store it in a word processing file.

For example, I started getting a newsletter from High Mowing Organic Seeds a while back. This one caught my eye because I may have spent a summer with a relative of the founder when I was a kid. However, it kept my attention because it depicts a lifestyle many of us support: building a greener, more just and community-supported world, one seed at a time. Everything they write about is organic and they have a great catalog, too.

Then there is the newsletter from an organization called the National Gardening Association (garden.org). This group bills itself as the largest social network for gardeners. They issue a free newsletter, full of useful articles on — duh! — gardening. From orchids to fuchsia care, these are often “print out” keepers or get copied and put into my files.
