It is all systems go for Re/Max as it readies itself to re enter the New York real estate market. It is in the final stages, having appointed Terri Bohannon who it tasked with assembling a marketing team. Like all franchises Re/ Max intends to make contact with local entrepreneurs who will operate using its business name. Of all the states in US New York has proved to be a challenging market. Re/Max has prospered in the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New England commanding a sizable market.

The city of New York has a very aggressive market and requires relentless advertisement. Re/Max founder Dave Linger stated normal advertisements and branding methods may not work in New York. It requires a specialized team that has worked in that kind of environment before. Some firms that have used this strategy and succeeded are; Keller Williams New York, Rutenberg Realty, Bond New York and Town. These firms have realized that conducting their kind of business in New York they have to compromise on profit and offer better working conditions.

These firms appreciate the fact that in order to get good results their contractors must be motivated. For instance Rutenberg Realty goes the extra mile of providing office equipment and stationery. They are interested in self conscience people who will make money for the franchise. Running a real estate franchise needs objectivity and recognizing the needs of your contractors and their customers.

A New Website And Products For The U.S. Money Reserve

Published / by Alice

The U.S. Money Reserve has now been around for more than a decade. One of the reasons that they have been so long lasting is because of the guarantees that they provide to their customers. This guarantee has 5 parts, including a safeguard promise, quality assurance, personalized service, complete transparency and the Seal of Trust from the U.S. Money Reserve. These 5 points are meant to bring peace of mind to customers and potential purchasers. One of the aspects that the reserve is proudest of is their efficiency. Most times, the reserve is able to ship the inventory that was ordered with 24 hours. This means that it will take about 5 days for orders to be received and the delivery process is very safe, as it is fully insured, guaranteed and tracked.

The U.S. Money Reserve is so confident in its inventory and the quality of its product that it offers a buy back guarantee. As long as the coin is in the same condition it was delivered in and is still in its container, the reserve will buy back any coins that customers are not happy with within 30 days, at the original cost. There are also buy back options after the 30 days has expired that offer a pretty good deal. Customers can either expect to get the market value of the coin on the price of the coin with a 20 percent fee deducted. However, this does not apply to bullion purchases.

The U.S. Money Reserve was recently in the news. CBS19 covered the reserve because of the new website they have launched. The article noted that the website now has e-commerce capabilities so that customers can buy online with ease. Ryan Buchanan is the Vice President of Brand and Creative. He oversaw the redesign of the website. His main goals with the website were to make it easier for individuals to purchase bullion online and to educate the public about coins and bullion. The article then quoted Buchanan when he talked about how the new website would allow the reserve to better interact with its clients and provide a safe and secure method of purchasing precious metals.

The website provides customers with options of looking at metals and learning more or actually purchasing the precious metals. One page on the site has updates about the precious metals market. There is also an application like goodsearch on the website that is a knowledge center. Customers can use this software to learn more about the metals they are interested in or possibly already own.

Is Sanders The Only Choice?

Published / by Alice

In his recent interview on Fox News, Thor Halvorssen, the president of the Human Rights Foundation, discussed his conflict with the current election in regards to appointing a socialist President.

Halvorssen has extensive knowledge on individuals abusing power in the name of good,evil, or greed, with most of his studies focused on corrupt dictatorships through out the world. His discussion begins by clarifying that in the hands of an authoritative government, such as the U.S, socialism can be no different from Communism or Marxism, as the temptation to abuse power is all to real. Halvorssen does however clarify that Bernie Sanders is still his choice for President come election time, even mentioning that he has contributed to his campaign.

The interview seems rather directed by the hostess’ questions, as she attempts to elicit a direct negative quote about Socialism from Mr.Thor Halvorssen. However, he remains focused on his key point of potential for abuse, rather than an actual problem with the style of government. His extensive knowledge of dictatorships is clearly at work here, as he follows up most questions with an answer referring to Hillary’s “contributions” from many of the most infamous human rights abuse countries around the world.

On the other end of the spectrum we’re presented with Donald Trump, who has many policies on the table that are greatly disliked by many in America. Discussing him is in fact so toxic to the interview and obvious, that the hostess herself holds up a hand saying no further mention is needed besides, “Republican Front runner”.

In all, he expresses concern with establishing a Socialist government in a system that is known for abuse already, but concedes that voting for any of the other candidates is detrimental to the health of the country.

Hillary Receives $ 8 million donations from George Soros

Published / by Alice

George Soros is said to have donated a total of $ 6 million to Hilary Clinton’s presidential campaign which is the leading PAC. This marked the return of the biggest billionaire financier givers in America politics. The big check brings a total of $ 8 million the Hungarian-born investor has provided to the Clinton’s group in 2015.
According to the latest report which was filed on Sunday evening with the Federal Election Commission, the super PAC is said to have received $ 6 million while priorities USA Action managed to raise a total of $ 25 million in the second half of 2015. This brings the PAC’s tally to $ 41 million for the single year and still left it with a total of $ 36 million in the bank.
Hollywood mogul Haim Saban whom together with his wife Cheryl Saban donated $ 3 million, Donald Sussman and Herb Sandler donated $1.5 million each was the other major donors during the second half year. The super PAC which works for Americans also gave a total of $1.5 million.
However, Soros donation whichgave $1million to priorities the USA in the first half of the year and a further $ 1 million to Clinton backing stands alone but not because of the amount.
Most people see George Soros as a bellwether among the rich democrats. He is seen as one of the few remaining liberals who have shown interest to drop eight figures in an election cycle. He already donated more than $20 million in 2004 to the groups which tried to oust the then USA president George W. Bush. Soros, however, dialed back to his big money political spending after his failed effort.
Soros donated only $ 1million to priorities USA despite the intense courtship in 2012. The amount was meant to support president Barrack Obama reelection. However, Soros revealed to one of Clintons close ally that he regretted supporting President Obama over her during the 2008 primaries and praised Hillary Clinton for awarding her with an open door to discuss policies according to the emails which had been released last month by the state.
George Soros is the founder and also chairs the Soros Fund Management and Open Society Foundations. George was born in Budapest in 1930. In 1947, he fled to communist- dominated Hungary after surviving the Nazi occupation during the World War II.

George Soros Shares His Insight About The Collapsed Of The European Union.

Published / by Alice

Recently, George Soros was interviewed by Gregor Peter Schmitz of the German magazine, WirtschaftsWoche, about the current situation in Europe and the prediction of the collapse of the European Union. George Soros had a lot to say from his economic and political understanding of Europe and also from his personal experience as he was born in Hungary during the Nazi inversion and studied in England. He has also been involved in philanthropic work both in Europe, especially in Germany during the division between the east and the west. His Open Society Foundation has been on the forefront of fighting against injustices such as democratic and human rights violations in countries such as Hungary and Syria.
George Soros began his discussion by congratulating the current chair of the European Union, Angela Merkel, the German chancellor for fighting hard to hold the union together up to know despite the numerous challenges the union is facing. He said that though he has been a critic of Angela Merkel, her leadership ability and insightfulness can not be compared with that of any other leader. He said Angela Merkel was the first person to predict the European crisis correctly and started preparing the union with policies such as the European asylum seekers policy. This policy has helped cushion out some of the impacts that the many crises the Union is currently facing.

According to George Soros, the Russian inversion to Ukraine and the Syrian crisis are the two major problems that are powerfully threatening the stability of the union. The Russian inversion on Ukraine proved that the European Union has lost control over Russia, a very aggressive instability minded nation lead by the dictatorial Vladimir Putin. It also proved that the European Union had lost the power to protect smaller nations in its union from attack by the larger nations. On the hand, the Syrian crisis was generating millions of refugees in Europe that were flooding in other countries in the union. Though some countries like German were readily taking in refugees, others like Hungary and Poland had launched anti-refugee campaigns that were driven by there, political leaders.

The increased number of Syrian refugees seeking asylum would have already brought Europe down to its knees were it not for good policies from Angela Merkel. The European Union also has another problem of immigrants from other nations worldwide. The increased number of immigrants arriving in Europe every day are a big threat to the economy of Europe. Angela Merkel has proposed a policy that will allow immigrants into Europe at a rate which Europe could absorb them healthily. There is also the issue of the euro crisis and the British membership referendum about its membership to the union. George Soros thinks that Angela Merkel can diligently handle all these problems and put the European Union back on track.
