Featured Resident(s): Alan Nguyen & Kirt Thomas


When Mark and I moved to town, we loved the old houses in Downtown Little Rock but we loved the people in them even more. One thing that we can say is that the best part of living Downtown is the people and we would like to feature some of those people in our new “Featured Resident” blog series.

If you joined us at our first annual Downtown Dwellings holiday party, you probably know our first two featured residents, Kirt and Alan. Kirt opened up his beautiful apartment home, offering us a festive signature poinsettia beverage (best cranberry and vodka I’ve ever had.) Alan got himself cornered by Mandie and answered our questions, perhaps so that we would leave him alone……..with his poinsettia beverage and other friends.

Thank you Kirt and Alan for your bravery in being our first featured residents. After reading what they have to say, I’m sure you will agree that they are wonderful people to kick off our new blog feature.
