An Established Agency Makes a Push for New York

If the name Dave Liniger sounds familiar, it should. Mr. Liniger is the founder of the real estate giant RE/MAX and has his eyes set on the New York City area by buying back the Master Franchise for New York City real estate. As reported in Real Estate Weekly, Liniger plans to ramp-up the local brokerages while expanding across the state, a part of the national plan Mr. Liniger has already set into motion by buying back 16 regional offices from franchise owners already.

To lead the charge, Liniger has placed Terri Bohannon, a veteran of the company, as the head of a special team that will begin a new branding and marketing campaign aimed at growing the operations in New York.

“I think they’ll do extremely well,” stated Mr. Liniger. “Our New Jersey region has been a phenomenal success, we have 20 percent market share in the state. In Pennsylvania, there’s almost the same figure and in New England, too.” Liniger added, “It’s about getting the right management team, selling franchises to the right people with the right drive and ambition and leadership style.”

However, Dave Liniger and RE/MAX might have their hands full using this model. TOWN Residential, the leading luxury real estate firm in New York, provides their customers with excellent customer service by a team of Representatives that are some of the best in the industry, and are lead by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable personnel available.

TOWN Residential has been considered the Best Firm to work for, as well as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in New York City. These accolades serves as the company’s validation that it is not only the best place for clients to search for a new home, but also attracts quality agents to TOWN Residential, helping to ensure that the company’s standards of quality remains intact.

Compliance Officers Jobs get Tougher Right before Presidential Elections

Presidential elections are extremely tough on economy. The reason why they prove to be so difficult for the financial and business sector has to do with the instability that awaits on the horizon. When a new president has the potential to be elected it will naturally impeded the flow of business and finance. The reason being is that most financial and business institutions do not know if a new set of financial policies will be in place. 

Many people are already skeptical about the economy at any given point in time. This sentiment tends to grow worse right before a new president has the chance of taking office. Even if a president is a two term office holder, the market still slows down in anticipation of receiving a new candidate in the position. 

Compliance officers have to be really careful during this time. They know that many companies have a tendency to behave in unethical ways right before an election. CEOs might encourage their workers to do some unethical activities to improve their bottom line. Independent brokers and investment managers might have the desire to shortchange their clients by having them to make bad investments. 

A compliance officer must be proactive months before an election to ensure that brokers are staying on time.

The DeVos Family’s Republican Support

The time for a new president is fast approaching. We are now at the epicenter of the presidential campaigns. Various high profile personalities are aligning themselves behind certain candidates. The DeVos family, a rich and powerful clan in west Michigan, has chosen to back the Republican candidate, Marco Rubio. As spokesman for his family, billionaire businessman Dick DeVos recently explained why the family was now backing Rubio. He said they had been backing Florida Governor Jeb Bush until he dropped out of the race.

DeVos added that they intend to do all they can to give Rubio momentum in his campaign. The aid of the immensely wealthy clan will primarily come in the form of significant financial assistance. Their friendship with Rubio did not just start. Dick has been well acquainted with Rubio since his 2006-8 stint in the Florida House of Representatives. It was during that time that the Devos grew very impressed by the leadership of both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Dick DeVos well understands how hard it is to be a politician.

There is mounting pressure for the Ohio Gov. John Kasich to back out of the race, so Rubio will have more of a chance against his opponents. But Kasich is not backing down. In fact, he will soon be running ads that will attempt to explain why he has more of a chance against Clinton than Rubio. In the recent, certain of the DeVos family have given money to Kasich’s campaign. In fact, Dick’s mother Helen gave Kasich, Bush, and Rubio $2, 700 each. Dick says it has not been until very, very recently that Rubio has become the clear favorite among the entire DeVos clan.

DeVos is the heir to the Amway Corporation (Michigan Live feature) and worked with the company throughout his career before he left to begin the Windquest Group. His resume on New Netherland Institute proves his experience in business and philanthropy.

Dick and Betsy started their own foundation that gives regularly to education, community services and many more causes. Dick is proud to be part of an aviation charter school both because of his dedication to education and because of his passion for flight.

A Campaign to Benefit Homeless Animals Is Spearheaded by a New York Lawyer

When most people see a stray animal on the streets of New York City, they want to do something about it. Not everyone has the circumstances to take in a stray animal. However, they try to help by taking the animal to a place where it can be cared for, like a New York City animal shelter. They make all of the effort that is needed to find a shelter and then take the animal there. However, when they actually arrive, they may find that they are turned away. One of the main reasons why this happens is because animal shelters in New York and in other places simply do not have the funding that is needed to take care of all of the animals that need help. Many individuals are forced to let the animal go back on the streets. This is something that is especially difficult during winter when temperatures drop below zero.

Fortunately, there are a lot of people who are reaching out and are trying to find a solution to the problem. For example, Ross Abelow is spearheading a campaign that will raise money for New York animal shelters. He has created a Go Fund Me account where individuals can donate money to this cause. Once the donations reached $5,000, all of the money will be donated to local animal shelters. This is going to go a long way in addressing many of the problems that animal shelters in New York are facing. First, more space will be acquired where homeless animals can be housed. Second, items like food and blankets can be purchased. Third, animals that are sick will be cared for by experienced veterinarians, and money will be on hand to purchase medicine and medical supplies.

Ross Abelow is interested in the well-being of individuals in New York City. He has been working in the community for more than 25 years defending the rights of a his clients. He is an experienced matrimonial and family lawyer. After practicing law for more than 25 years in different firms in the city, he became a partner at Abelow & Cassandro LLP. As a partner at this firm, it is still his goal to defend clients who are going through different family situations that require legal expertise.
