Is Costco actively looking to put a store in the OKC area?

That's what I keep hearing. Trader Joe's is searching as well.

Which hotel do you think will open first? Aloft, Hilton Garden Inn or Ambassador?

The Hilton Garden Inn may open first, Aloft second, Ambassador third. The Ambassador will be the biggest game changer.

What do you think of Kevin Durant owning a house in Deep Deuce?

I think it sparks even more interest in buying homes on The Hill.

Do you know if the historic society is going to try to save the original Film Exchange Buildings?

I fear the film exchange building is doomed. The city wants a clear site.
