Meeting: September 4th, 2014

I recently returned from a fabulous trip to Charmey, Switerland where I visited my girlfriend and her husband. We like to get together and do wonderful things, including cooking and eating. While there, I shared a recipe with them that was a real hit. They are both gourmet cooks, so I was thrilled to share! It was actually a recipe from the grandmother of a good friend of mine. This recipe is now going around the world! Next stop will be Chili, where my friend’s sister resides. I’ll attach the recipe to below for anyone interested. As part of the trip, we visited a small town nearby in the German speaking part of Switzerland called Fribourg. This village was established in 1193 –can you imagine? We had several jokes going about the possibilities of getting home warranty coverage and a clear chain of title on these homes. Since I am a lender, it becomes a challenge to figure out how these things are accomplished, especially on a property built in 1193! It is amazing to see the layout of the village and how it compares to our current townhouses of today. It was a great trip and one that...
The Conejo Compassion Coalition, formed by our own Synergy Conejo member Bob Bland and his fellow Conejo Valley Homeless Shelter Volunteers back in 2004, is a nonprofit corporation serving poor and needy people at home and throughout the world. They seek and engage local, national and international relief needs that may be overlooked or underserved by government agencies and larger charities.
Recently, the Conejo Compassion Coalition hosted a luncheon on June 13th. 63 guests were treated to a delicious lunch while they learned about the work of the Conejo Compassion Coalition. An informative slide show detailed past and present projects sponsored by the coalition and explained the what, where, when and why of this lifegiving work. Guests left with a greater appreciation of the work of the coalition and the impact of the organization's work around the world. Event planning and catering were provided by our own fellow Synergy Member Merley Greenidge of Celebrate Sweetly.
This is a truly important and impactful group to be apart of, and we are so proud of several of our Synergy Members who are involved in this group....

Meeting: October 2nd, 2014
This is the presentation that Jim Nagy did on October 2nd, 2014 on how to create a great newsletter. We reviewed Debbie Soden's newsletter and made improvements to it to make it shorter, more appealing, and visually pleasing. We made these changes in hopes of increasing engagement.
from David Massie - DJM Commercial Real Estate
In our meeting this week, I brought up the subject of the buying section of commercial real estate being very hot right now with prices peaking. There is very small inventory and many buyers pushing up prices to all time highs.
I thought you might find this blog interesting related to commercial real estate, our economy, and what surprised many in 2014 and projections for 2015. #10 on this blog relates to the current market for commercial real estate wherein it is expected that rental rates are expected to rise. So, my recommendation is that you and your clients lock in a rate as soon as possible for as long as possible in the future while rates are still lower.
