SCAD deFINE ART 2018

Judge Realty in Savannah, Georgia

Judge Realty agents tee’d up this week for the SCAD Museum of Art public performance by artist Pia Camil. This installation, specially commissioned by the SCAD Museum of Art, is the latest and the largest iteration of Camil’s ongoing interest in t-shirts as repositories of cultural information. The artwork is one colossal fabric mass comprised of more than 1,000 repurposed t-shirts stitched together yet maintaining each tee’s neck opening.Judge Realty in Savannah, Georgia.

The Judge team joined Camil in Forsyth Park as she leads a public, participatory performance to kick off SCAD deFINE ART 2018. Onlookers and volunteers collectively wore the garment generating a moment of togetherness.  Accompanied by the SCAD drumline, the walk provided a unique opportunity to be a part of an artistic performance celebrating diversity.Judge Realty in Savannah, Georgia

This vintage 1920’s eight-unit complex, once known as the Williams Apartments and later the Tomo-Chi-Chi Apartments, has been given a complete face lift. Broker Lori Judge matched investors with this property and the results are noteworthy. The new owners have transformed this vintage building into a renter’s dream, resulting in a significant contribution to the ongoing revitalization of this trendy Starland District neighborhood.

Lori Judge states, “Last year, Judge Realty formed our New Development Division to provide consulting, navigating, and assistance to real estate investors and developers. Our services range from property acquisition to rental management. We are pleased to have assisted in this sale and to now provide the management and leasing. Who could have guessed this neglected building could be transformed into the gem it is now? Not only does this renovation provide exceptional housing, it also generates several external community benefits. A rehabilitation of an existing property is a catalyst; helping to attract other investors and improving neighborhood conditions. It indicates an economic viability helping to spur other residential and commercial activity, increasing population, and improving neighborhood safety.”Stunning Apartment Renovation Available to Lease with Judge Realty

Community Spotlight: Out of the Judge Realty Office and into the Emmaus House Kitchen

Judge Realty team at Emmaus in Savannah, Georgia

Judge Realty agents spent a busy morning last Friday volunteering at the Emmaus House; the team provided meal prep and service to Savannah’s homeless and in need population. An outreach program of United Ministries of Savannah, the Emmaus house located at 18 Abercorn St. mission is, “focused on confronting food insecurity in downtown Savannah.” Founded in 1982 by several area congregations, last year this program served an astounding 4,000 hot meals each month and also provided laundry and shower facilities to Savannah’s neediest residents.Judge Realty at Emmau in Savannah Ga

The volunteer morning began at 7:30 am as agents donned aprons and began a non-stop culinary dance choreographed by Emmaus House Executive Chef Freda Payne. Chef Payne has been associated with the Emmaus House for nearly 20 years. She is a skilled coordinator who seamlessly led the agents from slicing and dicing to after-meal cleanup and showed the team what it takes to feed 200 plus patrons every day.Lori Judge at Emmaus with Judge Realty

Many thanks to Executive Director Ariana Berksteiner for allowing Judge Realty the privilege of experiencing this 20-year-old program and educating the team on community volunteering.
