Most Fabulous Barber

Kylee Howell at Friar Tucks

It’s no surprise that Kylee Howell leads Friar Tuck to a Fabby because Kylee is very fabby. The shop gives back to the community through service and fundraising for VOA and other LGBT nonprofits.

Most Fabulous Real Estate Agent

Juan Magana

From a satisfied customer: Juan has been an exceptional agent for us! He took on the task of selling our current home (open houses and all) as well as sold us our new home! He took the time to listen to our wants and needs for the new house and gave us great recommendations on what we should do to our old home to be able to sell it for top dollar! On multiple occasions, he took the extra time to explain things to us and ensure that we were comfortable in making our decisions. I would highly recommend Juan to anyone that is looking to sell or buy a new home!
