New to 63rd Street – Brookside Real Estate Company wants to welcome Brow Bar KC!

The perfect addition to Brookside, Brow Bar KC. co-owner, Tammy Sciara, has a mission to “make every beauty treatment, even a brow wax, feel like a spa experience.” We recently spoke with Tammy to learn more about her business and why she chose to open in our favorite neighborhood – Brookside!

Tell us a little bit about your background: Are you from Kansas City? What made you decide to open your own shop?

I moved to Kansas City from Columbia, MO in 2005 and worked in the corporate world for a number of years. I got married and after I had my second son, I decided that I wanted to stay at home with my kids. I was loving being at home but because my hair and eyebrows are so blonde, I felt like I couldn’t even go pick up my kids from school or answer the front door without filling in my brows. I knew I wanted to get microblading done and I was having a hard time finding a spa in Kansas City that could microblade. I eventually found a place to get them done and felt like my entire

appointment just lacked customer experience. That’s when I decided to call my good friend (and now co-owner) Nicole Baldwin about opening our own spa.

What sets Brow Bar KC apart from other beauty spas in Kansas City?

When I had originally gotten my microblading done for the first time, the client experience itself was lacking. I laid on a cold bed in a cold room and overall, I didn’t feel as though my comfort level as a

client was taken into consideration. Here at Brow Bar KC, we will never try to move you in for your appointment and move you out – we are here to give you the best experience possible! We want you to feel like you can stay a while and relax. Especially after this past year, we want you to be able to take a moment for yourself. If you come early for your appointment or want to stay late, we have a relaxation room that is available to you for as long as you’d like. We want you to leave feeling relaxed and beautiful!

What can your clients expect when they book an appointment at Brow Bar KC ?

Quality always comes first here. We take education and training very seriously. Nicole holds a license in semi-permanent makeup and is a Kansas City Art Institute grad and our cosmetic injector is a CRNA-DNP.  We just really want to give the best to our clients. Along with spa services, we also carry several unique skincare and beauty lines. Clean beauty products like Lover Cosmetics and LeahLani skincare – both of which are small batch and hard to find brands.

Why did you decide to open your shop in Brookside?

We originally opened in a smaller space on the Country Club Plaza, but we were ready to expand  and moving to a store front in Brookside allows us to offer more services and an even better client experience. Brookside is also my home. My family and I shop, eat, and live in Brookside. I love the community aspect of this neighborhood, it’s perfect for us as a local business.  We are excited to bring this needed service to the area.

3 Reasons To List Your Home In 2021

It’s safe to say that 2020 was filled with uncertainty and general unrest. With the global pandemic in full swing and so much left to the unknown – you may have held off on selling your house. At the beginning of the pandemic, the housing market initially dropped, but made quite a comeback in the later half of 2020. More than ever before, buyers are ready to move! Experts believe that 2021 will be a great year to sell! Keep reading to learn more about the 3 major reasons you should list your home in 2021.

Low Interest Rates: FHFA announced conforming loan limits for 2021! Increased loan limits means more power for buyers. Even though interest rates will gradually rise throughout 2021, they are expected to sit fairly low compared to averages throughout recent history. Click here to read more about loan limits in every county in the U.S.

You Need to Move: Maybe 2020 has caused a financial change or you’re needing space for a home office.  No matter the reason that you need to move, the lack of inventory will help your home sell quickly. Todd Teta, chief product officer at ATTOM Data Solutions says, “There is incredibly low inventory, with less than 500,000 homes for sale, mortgage rates are at 50-year lows, and there’s no sign yet of distressed sellers from the recession coming out. These supply and demand factors will push prices even higher in the first half of the year.”

You Own a Starter Home: Homes at entry level prices that are appealing to first time-home buyers are expected to be in high demand throughout 2021. Danielle Hale, chief economist for explains, “While younger Millennial and Gen-Z buyers are expected to play a growing role in the housing market, fast-rising prices will create a bigger barrier to entry for the many first-time buyers in these generations who don’t have existing home equity to tap for down payment savings.”
