It seems a bit strange to be talking about flowers on a day where it's been raining cats and dogs, in a month where we‚Äôve barely seen the sun. I‚Äôm going to do it anyway. Flowers are fun!
Here is the deal folks. You‚Äôve got one of the most amazing florists for hire sitting right under your noses. Classically trained, highly experienced, naturally gifted - Michele Lowings. Michele is to flowers what Buddha is to peace. Ok, maybe that‚Äôs a little over the top but that girl‚Äôs got talent!
Michele has been a local coast-sider for many years and currently lives in El Granada with her husband and two kids. She cut her teeth in the floral business (back in a different millennia) in Central California where she earned a degree in horticulture from Cal Poly (one of the most prestigious AG schools out there).
Before going on her own, Michele ran the gamut of local flower businesses. She spent years as a buyer for Nurserymen‚Äôs Exchange (now Rocket Farms) in Half Moon Bay. Later, she ran the flower department at New Leaf. But, Michele was meant for greater things and ultimately she jumped ship, stopped working for the man, and started FloraAndFaunaByMichelle - flower master for hire.
Consider Michele your own personal florist. She has done it all from over 100 mega-weddings, to private parties for the stars, to countless individual bouquets, to holiday wreaths and table arrangements made from native coastal flora! She is a true craftswoman and can manifest your vision and address your occasion with a variety of well-thought arrangements.
And then there‚Äôs VALENTINES DAY!‚Ä¶‚Ä¶ That‚Äôs right, Valentine‚Äôs day is next week!! If you contact Michelle in now she can probably create something special for your honey and make you look like a hero. or heroine ;)
One last thing. Michelle is a pillar of our community and spends a significant amount of effort helping local organizations both with her time, and her flowers (which she recently donated to El Granada Elementary‚Äôs Father-Daughter Dance). Thank you Michele!
So‚Ä¶...support your community‚Ä¶..support your happiness‚Ä¶support celebration of color, of life and beauty‚Ä¶.but most of all BE A HERO (sorry, GoPro)- call Michele and order some flowers!
Element, Community Minded Real Estate is the brain child of two childhood friends who came together to create a different type of real estate company. At Element we stand for two things; our clients and the communities they live in.
Yes, we are experts in home buying and selling, property management, relocation, foreclosures and short sales, as well as real estate investing. Our 600+ transactions and better part of a century of local experience well position us to exceed all expectations.
But real estate without an organized approach to bettering the community is a hollow enterprise. At Element we believe helping community members buy or sell homes should be one part of larger strategy to create a richer, more supportive community. And this is exactly what we do! From community outreach programs, to active involvement and financial support to local organizat ions, to producing relevant content for both local residents and tourists, we are committed to making our community better place.

"The guys at Element Real Estate were awesome. They helped me find our families first home in a painless manner. They were attentive, patient, and walked us through every step of the way. They also helped us get connected into our new community by helping us understand the local school system, and the various community services we have at our disposal. We love Matt and Danny"
