Handbrewed Soaps

Raising Money to provide soap to the most vulnerable of Oakland through our Keep Oakland Healthy Bar of Soap. When you buy a bar, 4 additional people in our community will too.   The demand for soap in our community continues as there is a shortage. If you feel so inclined to help us get soap into the hands of those that need it the most, feel free to purchase this bar. It will help us buy supplies to make more soap so that people don’t need to worry (as much) about staying healthy. We of course, are donating much of our materials and time to make this happen. Your help would make a larger impact. Our partners include:   The City of Oakland (2,000 bars donated), Mercy Brown Bag (2,000 bars), LavaeMae (200 bars), Serenity House (200 bars). And we continue to donate. See

Simply Vanity



Suzanne Thompson – RealtorSuzanne Thompson Realtor
DRE #02173002

I’m an East Bay native and my family has called Glenview home for the past 9 years. Miles has been part of the Glenview Elementary family since kinder and is now in Mx SJ’s 5th grade class, and Stella is in Mr. Gilley’s Kindergarten class. I forged a non-traditional path to motherhood with the help of my best friend Chris, his husband Ben, and the power of science.

I bring that same passion, tenacity, and heart to my work in Real Estate. I thrive in the role of trusted advisor & advocate and am honored to guide friends and neighbors through one of the biggest decisions of your lives: buying or selling your home. I’d love to be your resource for home maintenance and renovation questions, service provider recommendations, and of course if you or someone you know is thinking of buying or selling your home, I’d love to help.

I pay reparations from every transaction to organizations working to provide housing for all, establish anti-racist housing policies and practices, and empower more people of color to achieve home ownership and build generational wealth.

Also, happy to answer any real estate related or investing strategy questions for you as well. I’ll talk about real estate all day if you let me, or kid stuff too!

Leonore Deaton

My passion for real estate stems from my love of all things home — family, gardening, design, and a place of comfort and rest. Helping people through times of growth and change, and making their transitions as easeful as possible, is the highlight of my work.

My son Amalio is in Mr. Alexander’s 1st grade class, and we are thrilled to be a part of the Glenview community!  I am available as a resource and happy to provide real estate guidance; just let me know what you need!

Goals InSight

My business has been referral based for over 17 years, and it would be an honor to talk with people you know who need leadership and/or team support. If you know of an organizational team that is struggling with their team dynamics or getting results in their work together (especially during times of change like our current situation), I provide no-obligation, complimentary consultations with team leaders to explore their needs and potential solutions that can be offered virtually to support them in becoming high performing. Similarly, if you know a leader who wants support in leading his/her team, or is struggling to meet the day-to-day business operational needs while managing COVID-19 stressors, I provide complimentary, no-obligation consultations to see if leadership / executive coaching could support them. All services are being provided virtually for now (it’s amazing what can be done to engage teams and leaders via Zoom or WebEx when facilitated well!), and once the shelter-in-place is lifted, we can return to in-person sessions. Thank you for thinking of me as you talk with your trusted colleagues and friends.


The Nurtured Seedling

Founded and run by two Glenview mamas, our mission is to give younger kids the opportunity to learn about growing a home garden. Gardening teaches kids responsibility, self-confidence, love of nature, creativity, nutrition, cooperation, and so much more. These small-group classes (taught by the founders) are held in a safe, beautiful outdoor home garden near Dimond Park. After-school and weekend classes available. We also partner with local woman-owned businesses to lead both informational and creative workshops for adults and families to nourish the mind, body, and spirit. Past adult-only workshops have included seasonal wreath classes with a local florist, botanical skincare diy, and more. Family workshops have included Mother’s Day flower crowns, succulent teacups, and holiday cookie decorating.

Check us out and we can’t wait to see you in the garden!
