Black History Month began in 1926 as a weeklong observance of the important people and events in African-American history. Created by Carter G. Woodson, it was celebrated during the second week of February, coinciding with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

Black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University first proposed Black History Month in February 1969. The first celebration of the month took place at Kent State one year later, in February 1970.

Six years later, Black History Month was being celebrated all across the country in educational institutions, centers of Black culture and community centers, when President Gerald Ford recognized Black History Month, during the celebration of the United States

When children are small, Christmas tends to be more magical for them than it is once they're grown. Keep that holiday magic going with your little ones on Christmas Eve, by tracking Santa’s flight around the world. And if you time it right, you can even use it as a way to get the kiddos to bed promptly!

The Official NORAD Santa Tracker is an annual Christmas-themed entertainment program, which has existed since 1955, with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Every year on Christmas Eve, NORAD tracks Santa Claus as he leaves the North Pole on Christmas Eve and delivers gifts in every time zone, to children around the world. You can use it to listen to Christmas carols, check your local weather or check the weather at the North Pole.

Once again, The Real Estate Group, its associates and their families participated in the 2017 Grand Illumination Parade in Downtown Norfolk this last Saturday. As anyone that’s lived in Norfolk during this time of year, the Grand Illumination Parade and the lighting of the buildings mark the start of the local holiday season.

This year, TREG again had the honor of walking the Blue Angels balloon in the 33rd annual parade, and the crowd response was fantastic. The love for the military community was alive and well with all the bundled up families cheering, clapping, and waving from the sidewalks as the giant blue jet was expertly guided by our very own agents, staff members and their family members.

For more than 30 years, families have gathered

Dr. Vinod Agarwal spoke to the TREG agents at the annual special business meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017, at Springhill Suites in Norfolk, where he discussed the Hampton Roads economy and a summary of the existing homes market since 2011.

Agarwal is the Director of the Economic Forecasting Project and Professor of Economics at the Strome College of Business at Old Dominion University (ODU) in Norfolk, VA.

According to Agarwal, home inventories have decreased substantially, and the number of homes sold has steadily increased. Mortgage rates continue to be at historic lows, but the median price has increased only slightly. The number of days on the market has also decreased from 102 days in 2011, to 75 days in 2016.

Friday, Sept. 15 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. This annual event, honoring our missing service members and their families, shouldn't be a day for only for our military communities, but it should also be recognized by our civilian communities as well. It highlights the government’s commitment to account for those missing service members.
