May your table be filled with family and friends, new and old.
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.

Meting: November 6th, 2014
This is the presentation that Jim Nagy did on November 6th, 2014 on 26 creative ways to publish social media updates from the Social Media Examiner. It gave many tips and techniques on what to post, how to post and when to post great stuff on social media. We weren't able to get through all the slides at the meeting, but you can view the entire presentation as it was intended.
We'd like to congratulate our very own Merley Greenidge, owner of Celebrate Sweetly, on walking away with four out of the five design awards at the National Gift Basket Convention earlier this year! What an amazing show of your talents and hard work, well done Merley!

Wishing you a joyous Holiday Season.
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...
