Q & A With Owners Sold The Gem Real Estate Within A Great Community

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Strategist

This property got sold recently because of the extraordinaire approach that was implemented by the owners. Read the details below…

The personalized realistic strategy and interaction with real people/buyers created an invaluable dimension of selling this real estate that is rare, unique, with quality improvements through out the home, highlighted features that are incomparable to multitudes of real estates in the area and sustained its Ranch-single-level style home within a community among multi-level homes.

Sadly, the traditional, impersonal and mechanical approach of “used houses salesmen” aka real estate agents did not provide quality results within a given time frame.

Realistic Perspectives and Tips:

Home Owners who would like to sell their homes, make sure you are selling quality that is uniquely presented. The worst that will happen is not having a professional that understands the real features of your home that will separate from the rest of many real estates for sale.

Challenge your real estate agent to work hard for their commissions, interview prospective agents whom you think can represent you. Pick someone who has the grasp of what you like and end result ‘price correctly’. That is the bottom line.

Take the opportunity of talking to your prospective buyers. An interaction with them will facilitate better sale of the property. Majority of agents do not like this approach because they did not learn it from their schooling. It is an outside of their comfort zone.



Germany On a Path to Marriage Equality #SameSexMarriage

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

In a recent development, Germany is on its path for Marriage Equality.

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel encouraged the Bundestag Members to weigh-in on “question for conscience”.  Her Parliamentary Leader Volker Kauder asked CDU’s members of the Bundestag to show for the vote. CDU (Christian Democratic Union of Germany) is Angela Merkel’s political party. The Social Democrats, Merkel’s  grand coalition partner are expected to table the voting sooner than September 24, 2017. (credit source:

Speculations indicate that the vote may pass as majority of the Germans do not opposed to SameSex Marriage according to a study that was released  early this year by Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency. Perhaps in the coming days or weeks Germany’s Marriage Equality will become a reality.

More power to the #LGBTQ community of Germany. #lovewins #loveislove #MarriageEquality

This year the US #LoveWins celebrates its second year anniversary of Marriage Equality;

Employers Found College Grads with Inadequate Cultural Competency

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

Recently, the American Association of Colleges and Universities published one of their findings about college graduates. It is interesting to note that with this era of globalization, colleges and universities have not step up in increasing competitive advantage of their products, the college graduates.

collegegrads inadequate culture competency

In the graph that was released, it illustrated that the international skills and knowledge at the bottom of the chart. Below 25 percent of surveyed employers said that college graduates that they hired were below par in meeting their business expectations.

“When it comes to the types of skills and knowledge that employers feel are most important to workplace success, large majorities of employers do NOT feel that recent college graduates are well prepared. This is particularly the case for applying knowledge and skills in real-world settings, critical thinking skills, and written and oral communication skills — areas in which fewer than three in 10 employers think that recent college graduates are well prepared. Yet even in the areas of ethical decision-making and working with others in teams, many employers do not give graduates high marks,” the AACU report says.

Indeed, a fascinating illustrations of how commercialized our educational systems and not meeting the expectations of industries that employ their graduates.

Martin Luther King Jr Day – USA Holiday

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

January 19, 2015 is a US Federal Holiday. It is the day to remember the legacy that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has fought for us, being an American. He was born on January 15, 1928 and was assassinated in April 4th 1968. He stood for justice and equality as a civil rights leader.

Martin Luther King Jr


“I am in Birmingham because injustice is here,’’ he wrote in the letter, dated April 16, 1963. “… We have waited for more than 340 years for our constitutional and God given rights. The nations of Asia and Africa are moving with jetlike speed toward gaining political independence, but we still creep at horse and buggy pace toward gaining a cup of coffee at a lunch counter.’’ – said Martin Luther King III, noted of his father’s Letter from Birmingham Jail.

48M Turkey Consumed in America at Thanksgiving Day

By Paul A. Soley, CRP, GMS, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Curzon Real Estate LLC (New York) & James Moss, FRICS, MCIArb, Managing Director, Curzon Property Consultants (London)

He therefore called it ‘tuka’ which is ‘peacock’ in Tamil, and Indian language.

The Native American name for turkey is ‘firkee’; some say this is how turkeys got their name. Simple facts, however, sometimes produce the best answers-when a turkey is scared, it makes a “turk, turk, turk” noise.

10 Turkey Facts You May Not Know

  1. At one time, the turkey and the bald eagle were each considered as the national symbol of America. Benjamin Franklin was one of those who argues passionately on behalf of the turkey. Franklin felt the turkey, although “vain and silly”, was a better choice than the bald eagle, whom he felt was “a coward”
  2. American per capital consumption of turkeys has soared from 8.3 pounds in 1975 to 18.5 pounds in 1997 and has remained stable at about 16 pounds since 2011.
  3. Turkeys are fed a diet of mainly corn and soybean meal along with a supplement of vitamins and minerals. They grow to full maturity in about 4 to 5 months, depending on the desired market weight.

Canadian Story To Be Shared Internationally

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

This story appeared and published by Vancouver Sun, dated November 12, 2014.

Thank you Vancouver Sun for sharing and it is a story to be told internationally.  Mr. Richard Brunt, thank you for sharing us your realistic view and observations.

“The reaction is right off the Richter scale,” Brunt said Tuesday. “People are phoning and emailing me. I had no idea it would even get published. I had to shut down my Twitter account.”

“When you are done with Obama, can you send him our way?”

Canadian Story - Obama VancouverSun

Brunt said he was inspired to write the letter because of an article in the Detroit paper. “I was a little bit upset with the U.S. midterm elections and I was surfing the Net … and something in the Detroit Free Press caught my eye and annoyed me and so I just replied.”

Indeed, only the few handful will read and understand Mr. Brunt’s message. However, in American way what’s the next politics in play!
