Celebrating Success at Redmond Street Rentals!

Featured Community Members: Ven and Eliska Garcia

Jackson is home to a remarkable number of passionate people who work hard to ensure that our #community and local economy continue to thrive. Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing the stories of dedicated community members who will be moving into #RedmondStreetRentals this summer!

Ven, produce manager at Lucky's Market and Eliska Garcia, ESL Instructor and CWC and CEO of Benelingua will soon be a living at #RedmondStreetRentals! They graciously took the time to answer a few questions:

Q) How has accessibility to affordable housing affected your quality of life in Jackson?

A) Greatly. Jackson Hole's housing situation has been getting progressively worse during the last few years, and it's been the number one reason why we have seriously considered moving out of this area on a couple of occasions.

Q) What do you think is the solution to the greater housing crisis?

A) We feel that having more affordable rentals is the key, and employers should be providing housing stipends or employee housing. We'd also like to see some tiny home developments in the county, there seem to be many people interested in that idea but no where to put them.

Q) How do we as a community grow grassroots support for housing in Jackson?  

A) There is a lot of effort to make the local housing situation better. By speaking up and letting others know of your housing struggles, you make the community realize that housing issues affect people from all walks of life. 

Q) What's your favorite joke?

A) We lost our sense of humor during our search for housing. Just kidding! What do you call a cow in a an earthquake? A milkshake!

Thanks for sharing Ven and Eliska. Congrats on your growing family too.
