Mackey Real Estate moves, expands

After 25 years on Main Street, Mackey Real Estate has moved to a new location and started a new business in Nevada City.

The real estate agency moved earlier this month from its location next to the Chamber of Commerce on Main Street to 343 Railroad Ave. In addition, Jim and Scott Mackey have opened Nevada City Mail at the same location.

Jim Mackey said the new business has 25 parking spaces, while his previous office had very little parking for customers.

The Mackeys are taking advantage of its new home to start a mail business, which is something “Scott has wanted to do for at four or five years, ” Jim said.

The mail business will be open Monday through Saturday and offers mailboxes, shipping options and a fax, shipping and notary services.
