One of Houston’s most celebrated chefs, Monica Pope of Sparrow Bar + Cookshop, is celebrating a series of intimate Sunday Supper garden parties at a unique John Daugherty, Realtors luxury listing each month.
Most recently, the Sunday Supper was held in a multi-million dollar property in the desirable Royden Oaks neighborhood. These suppers allow guests an up close and personal opportunity to interact, watch her team at work, and soak up a sultry evening with great food and drinks while making new friends.
Never one for tradition, Monica interjects some additional fun into the affairs. Guests pay $75 each for the multicourse dinner and are asked to bring a dinner plate from home. However, the final location for the Sunday Supper isn’t revealed until a few days prior. For an extra $25, guests can go on the Ultimate VIP Home Tour of the home while sipping Champagne. Proceeds benefit Dress for Success Houston.
BMW West, part of the Momentum family, supplies a keepsake bag to tote your china home and presents their coolest new rides, while John Daugherty, Realtors delivers the delicious backdrops with some of their most exclusive, million-dollar listings. The very first Sunday Supper as a joint venture between Pope and JDR took place on the sprawling grounds of 9 Remington Lane in the beautiful neighborhood of Shadyside.
The monthly Suppers will continue through November before taking a hiatus in December and January and picking back up in February. The next event on September 29th (location TBA) at
6 p.m., and the price is $75 per person. For more information and to get your ticket for the next Sunday Supper with the Pope call 713-524-6922 or log onto sparrowhouston.com.

COLD SPRING HARBOR, NY – Patricia J. Petersen and Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty (DGSIR) hosted a private reception and viewing of "La Presqu'ile", a 19-acre waterfront estate in Sands Point, New York. Select agents, managers and executives from Sotheby’s International Realty offices throughout Long Island, Manhattan, the Hamptons, Westchester and Fairfield counties and New Jersey were provided guided tours by golf cart of the property and its 1,600 feet of shoreline overlooking the Long Island Sound, Manhasset Bay and New York City’s amazing skyline.
The La Presqu’ile property is a part of the significant estate left by the inventor and manufacturer Alexander Lewyt and his wife, Elisabeth. The couple also owned a Manhattan townhouse that is currently listed by Sotheby’s International Realty, and Sotheby’s recently held an auction of the couple’s major art collection.
Among the Sotheby’s executives who attended the event was Hugh Hildesley, who has conducted many of Sotheby’s record-breaking and most prestigious sales. DGSIR President and CEO Patricia J. Petersen introduced Mr. Hildesley, who addressed the gathering with a brief talk on the important relationship between art and real estate and more specifically to a recent collaboration between the auction of the Lewyt art collection and the estate’s real estate properties.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – The Atlanta Perimeter office of Harry Norman, REALTORS was a very busy place on Saturday, June 1, as they held their annual paper shredding event for the local community.
The morning started out with a bang. As the agents and staff arrived at 8:30 am, they were greeted by a double line of cars and trucks already to start the shredding. A number of people even came back a second time, unaware of the 5 box/bag limit. The volunteers were able to set up an efficient system to keep things running smoothly –directing traffic, stuffing and distributing Harry Norman totes, all while filling and hauling barrels of paper to the truck to be shredded.
The community shredding event at Harry Norman’s was a great success and wonderful promotional opportunity. The Harry Norman team saw a steady stream of people bringing paper to shred after having seen ads in the local newspaper, online, emails, churches as well as at a police station. The agents and staff thanked everyone for shredding with them, and the attendees were thrilled with the great community service provided by Harry Norman, REALTORS. It was a wonderful experience for everyone!
