Re/Max Will Soon Expand Further into NYC

Re/Max is one of the largest real estate leasing and brokerage firms in the country. While the company has a footprint that includes thousands or office, agents, and brokers located across the world, the company has strategically avoided some markets in the country. One of the markets that the company has not invested much time or effort in is the New York City real estate market.

While the New York City real estate market is very dynamic and has always been strong, it is also very competitive and can be tough to operate in. While Re/Max has avoided the market in the past, they appear ready to expand further into the city. Re/Max has recently stated that they intend on opening several new offices across the city and are likely to hire hundreds of new and experienced agents and brokers to get the business up and running effectively.

Once Re/Max does decide to further enter the New York real estate market, they will find that there are plenty of new competitors out there that are not in other markets across the country. One of the toughest competitors that they will face is the boutique real estate firm, Town Residential. Town Residential was formed less than ten years ago, but is already considered one of the top firms in the city.

Town Residential provides a number of different services to its clients. The primary services provided include sales, leasing, and brokerage services for a range of clients including individual buyers up to owners of large condo developments. The company is also well regarded for its insight into the New York real estate market as they regularly put out a newsletter detailing current news in the city. Many real estate professionals read this newsletter on a regular basis and use it when making decisions about important business decisions.

Highland Capital Sets Its Sights on Argentina Bonds

As Argentina prepares to raise approximately $12 billion with the issuance of bonds, investors are planning to buy in. One of the most prominent of these, Highland Capital, has indicated its plans to buy large amounts of this debt. This information comes via a Bloomberg press release in which Highland’s president, James Dondero, whose company is already a holder of some of Argentina’s previous bonds with a 2033 due date, revealed plans to further invest in the country as it reenters the bond markets.

James is optimistic about where the new issue bonds are likely to trade as Argentina seeks to pay out settlements with its holdout creditors. It’s expected that purchasers of the country’s debt will hold their positions and continue to invest as it moves out of default. Argentina’s bonds will be issued in the middle of April 2016 and will yield between 7.5 and 8 percent. Bonds will be sold at maturities of 5, 10, and 30 years.

The financial outlook for Argentina has been more positive since newly elected president, Mauricio Macri, has begun work to ingratiate his country to international markets. The nation is emerging from the effects of its debt default in 2001 that left it effectively barred from international markets. President Macri’s policies seek to undue the that of the previous president who reneged on the nation’s obligations to pay creditors in 2014.

Highland Capital is set to reap significant returns as the political groundwork has been laid for the country to pay its restructured debt. James Dondero’s asset management firm has already seen tremendous gains from the 2033 bonds it bought in 2014. Jim says his company has plans for additional investment in Argentina beyond bonds and may open an Argentina fund.

James Dondero, who goes by Jim, is the co-founder and president of Highland Capital Management. He has accrued over 30 years of investment experience dealing in both credit and equity. The Dallas-based company has been at the forefront of the creation of the Collateralized Loan Obligation market and the establishment of credit market tools for investors.

In addition to heading Highland Capital Management, Jim is Chairman of Cornerstone Healthcare, CCS Medical, and Nexbank. He sits on the board of both American Banknote and MGM studios. Mr. Dondero is also a philanthropist who has backed efforts in education, foreign affairs, and veteran’s affairs.

Five Popular Myths About The Koch Brothers

Here are 5 myths that have been advanced since the Koch brothers joined politics.

The first myth is that the Koch brothers have emerged to fight the Obama administration. Since the early 1970s the Koch brothers have been involved with American politics. The brothers were not convinced by proposals advanced by the then presidential hopeful George Bush in 2003 and decided to do something about it. That is when they started fundraisers that have come to be known as Americans for Prosperity (AFP) IN 2004.

The second myth is that their network is a toy experiment. Their organization has grown over the years and has attracted over 500 donors since its inception. The Koch network meets twice a year and donates money in excess of 300 million dollars annually. This is a direct pointer that the network is just a group of wealthy like-minded conservative citizens to better American politics. The brothers do not have the ability to sway other multi-millionaires and billionaires.

The third myth sates that the brothers represent other companies that are featured in their network. This is not true since the brothers have opposed some reforms advanced by republicans. Charles Koch has been at logger heads with some industrialists who had previously supported them during the Obama care deliberations.

The fourth myth that the Koch brothers network is a secret and mysterious organizations set to finance democrats is unfounded. The organization is set up in such a manner that donations flow from members and the network is transparently run by the brothers and their allies.

The fifth myth is that the network is another political party in US. There are two parties in America: the Democrats and Republicans. The Koch network cannot be compared to either of these parties nor can it act as a political party. It exists due to the existence of these parties hence it cannot be termed as a third political party.

Charles Koch is one of the two billionaire brothers that run the Koch Empire. He is said to be a focused man that believes in the freedom of markets. He has categorically stated over the years that the government should not interfere with businesses. Charles was born in Wichita, Kansas and states that although he came from a wealthy family he worked to attain the position he now holds at Koch Enterprises. Charles Koch is well educated having attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he obtained his degree and later two masters certificates.

Andy Wirth Wins His Fight Against Incorporate Olympic Valley

The Reno-Gazette Journal did an interview with Andy Wirth about the past few years and the outlook for future seasons. The last few years haven’t been kind to the Squaw Valley and Alpine resorts, but Mr. Wirth sees relief on the way. Andy Wirth you may remember is the CEO of Squaw Valley Holdings, and a major supporter to the community and environment of the Squaw Valley area. Despite the recent droughts that ravaged the area, Mr. Wirth said mother nature stepped in with some storms and cold temperatures to restore the area’s vitality.

Also, with the push for incorporation of Squaw Valley withdrawn, Mr. Wirth sees relief coming to the civic concerns and businesses of the area. Squaw Valley Holdings spent a fortune fighting the incorporation that would only have decreased local services, and increased taxes for both residents and area business. Mr. Wirth also believed that incorporation would isolate Squaw Valley from other communities on the North Shore. He saw the incorporation as a disaster both financially and environmentally.

Mr. Wirth a long time champion for the environment, spent his early years as a ranger in Colorado and Rocky Mountain parks. Since his skydiving accident, he has teamed up with the Navy Seals to champion his causes for both wounded warriors and environmental issues. Mr. Wirth shares some of his plans for the future and offers that Squaw Valley Holdings plans on introducing a Gondola to the area that will connect the Squaw Valley Resort with the Alpine Meadows Resort. He also has plans to expand commercial and residential development of the area.

California’s Local Agency Formation Commission sided with Mr. Wirth against the incorporation drive in determining that the incorporation wouldn’t be fiscally feasible. Mr. Wirth believes the community should now focus on transportation and other issues now that the incorporation is set aside. He sees the Olympic Valley stretching out beyond its borders to form a strong cohesive community. Now that the divisiveness is over, he holds out hope for a positive future for the entire community.

Mr. Wirth is a graduate of Edinburgh and Colorado state Universities, and his career in the resort industry stretches over 20 years. He is a well-known philanthropist and entrepreneur, and he has gained world renown for his environmental efforts. He is a major contributor to charities and causes in the Lake Tahoe area, and with his wife Karen currently resides in Truckee, California.

The Rise and Demise Of Kyle Bass

The career of Kyle Bass reached an astonishing level of success after his prediction of the great recession. Other investors did not see the crash coming, but he did. A prediction like this would seem like something that would come from someone with great expertise. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case. If you look at Kyle Bass’ current career, what you will see is the polar opposite of success. His career has failed, and it is continuing to head downhill. In addition to ruining his own career, he has caused serious harm to the lives of other people. He’s engaged in shady business practices for his own profit. These shady business practices have caused extensive harm to other people’s lives.

Kyle Bass has become well known for his financial predictions. He used to be known as someone who had insight into the markets. Now, he is known for his incorrect predictions. He talks about his predictions and ideas quite a lot. Now, he talks about his predictions with even greater frequency than in the past. Kyle Bass frequently is on television programs talking about what he sees as the future of the economy. Then, these predictions are invariably wrong. Not only are they wrong, but they are often completely off base with no grain of truth. The frequent nature of his appearances ensures that his incorrect predictions are heard by many. As he makes himself more publicly visible, his reputation declines. The declining nature of his reputation has meant declining earnings for his appearances on television. Despite the frequent nature of his television appearances, he has made less money in total from them now than before.

Additionally, there is an unusual connection between Kyle Bass and autocratic politicians in Argentina. This connection is quite strange, because Kyle Bass doesn’t seem to have any documented connections with Argentina. His support of autocratic Argentine politicians, such as Cristina Kirchner, is extraordinarily strong. Despite their dismal failures in the political arena of Argentina, Kyle Bass backs up their political career wholeheartedly. There are many people that see this connection as suspicious. They wonder if he may be connected to these politicians, due to some type of sleazy business arrangement.

The worst part of Kyle Bass’ current career is how he takes advantage of major drug companies. He created an organization that challenges patents on drugs. This challenging of the patents causes drug companies to financially suffer. He makes money through his investments off of the financial struggles of the drug companies. The people who need the drugs often end up going for extended periods of time without treatment. In a lot of cases, this leads to them suffering very serious health problems. In some cases, the patients have even died. The full article appears on http://usefulstooges.com/2015/08/24/kyle-bass-the-frantic-investments-of-a-desperate-gambler/
