Does Cannabis Belong at Open Houses?

Here’s the hottest new marketing gimmick for trying to grab attention for high-end homes in Los Angeles:

Invite 100 of your “prospects” to enjoy cannabis laced chocolates, candies and other snacks maybe even some “laced” cocktails. Maybe even throw in some CBD cream massages. Then use marijuana and hemp plants as part of the staging.

Buyer Testimonial for 1207 Holliston

Recently I had the pleasure of having Nancy represent me in a real estate transaction. I consider myself knowledgeable in real estate matters having been through many real estate transactions in the past. I found Nancy to be exceptionally astute and her advice to me was invaluable. She is a total pro and knows the macro and micro real estate markets of the San Gabriel Valley market. Every step of the process she provided me with advice that was very helpful and appreciated. She guided me through possible pitfalls that I did not recognize. She was available when needed seven days a week.  I am so grateful that I hired Nancy to help me with my recent purchase. I would recommend Nancy without reservation.
