Passport Oakland: What's happening in the East Bay Real Estate Market?

The first of the five Passport Oakland events is next Thursday at The Ellington. I'm most excited to hear from Sarah Filley from Popuphood (which I mentioned a few weeks ago). Manifesto Bikes, one of the popup businesses in Old Oakland, has done so well that they are planning to stay there long-term, so its a pretty exciting indicator of how well downtown, and Oakland more broadly, are doing. This should be a cool way to learn about the Oakland real estate market and economy in general, and get to check out another new residential development.


State of the Market
Experts distill local market trends and forecasts & offer valuable insights on key factors affecting Oakland's real estate markets  
Join us on Thursday April 5th from 5:30-7:30pm for an engaging panel discussion followed by cocktails and light hors d'oeuvres in The Ellington's model homes and then head to 288 third from 7:30-8:30pm for an after-hours Miette mixer to network over sweets and coffee.
