THE KITCHEN TABLE • meet Susan O’Brien
At House Real Estate we realize that the success of our city directly relates to the success of our business. For this reason, we love to highlight businesses that make up the best of Sacramento. From the city’s highly curated gift shops to nationally featured restaurants, our locally owned businesses paint the culture of Sacramento.
What’s your home neighborhood?
My family and I live in Curtis Park. I love the old homes, our friendly neighbors, the block parties, the big trees growing in the middle of the street, and the fact that we can walk to get almost everything we need.
What does “neighborhood” mean to you?
“Neighborhood” means being connected to a place and the people there. And I love that today, through social media, I can feel connected to people and businesses that aren’t necessarily physically close but because of shared values and perspectives and aesthetics, feel like a community.
Why did you open your business in East Sac?
My dream was to open a space that would be a neighborhood store, where I would get to know my customers and they would come back, not just to buy a kitchen gadget or grab a jar of local honey, but because they felt welcomed and connected. I wanted a place that would foster a sense of community and inspire people to gather with their loved ones. East Sac is the perfect location for my shop because of the great sense of community already here and the pride the residents take in our city. I feel so fortunate to have found this location right in the heart of it all and am so grateful for the warm welcome I have received. I am so excited about what’s to come!
