Consider utilizing publicity in addition to advertising. Raise your profile in the community and become active in social groups, chambers of commerce, etc. Seek out opportunities to raise your corporate profile, such as charitable endeavors and newsworthy articles,” he said.Anjee Solanki of Colliers International said the current landscape is a great time for clients to seek guidance and learn from others.“Clients, agents, and companies are sharing insights and creative solutions and this collaboration are more transparent now than in the past. It’s critical to be there for one’s clients and not selling,” Solanki said.Pamela Bardhi of the Mosche Group said one way to improve sales is to identify and focus on an underserved market.“If you are focusing on a specific market that is saturated, you can expand to a new territory that is less saturated. You will be surprised at how well strategies work when you pivot and expand,” she said.A recent report by the National Association of Realtors found that nearly 47% of home buyers felt that recruiting the help of a real estate professional was even more vital and desired than before the pandemic arose, citing peace of mind as the main benefit of such aid.Also, 54% of buyers and 62% of sellers agreed that specifically because of the uncertainty swirling around them thanks to COVID-19’s impacts, the extra guidance from an expert was among the top of their must-have list now.Six out of 10 buyers and sellers surveyed counted real estate professionals—specifically buying and selling of property—to be an essential service. As to which part of this service was most valued and appreciated, a little more than half of those surveyed (51%) revealed that they found online listings most helpful for providing information versus if they would try to discover it of their own accord. Along this same vein, 56% of respondents felt that above and beyond the help of online listings, an actual real estate agent would be beneficial in saving them even more time.Five Star is also the parent company of FORCE, Five Star’s REO member organization comprised of pre-screened, certified, and experienced REO agents. 2020-07-06 Mike Albanese The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

How Your Brain Conducts Itself at Attention

first_imgThe conductor taps the stand.  All the musicians, who had been warming up or conversing with neighbors, suddenly hush and rivet their attention on the conductor.  The downbeat comes, and a marvel of coordination comes to life, each skilled player contributing to a unified yet diverse exhibition of harmonious sound.    Something like that occurs in your brain every time you are jolted from distraction to attention by a stimulus.  “Paying attention sets off symphony of cell synchronization,” writes EurekAlert based on work from Northwestern University.  A research team monitored EEG brain scans from subjects.  Here’s how Ken Paller, a co-author of the study, described what happened when the subjects were asked to focus their attention on objects displayed on a computer screen.  “When you need to dig deep to summon that extra ounce of attention,” he said, “it’s as if you engage a symphony of brain activity that can come to your rescue as millions of neurons together make the music that represents a vivid conscious experience.”  That was the grand finale of this short but lively scientific performance.Symphony: that’s intelligent design language.  Some ID thinkers have compared creation to a living symphony instead of a mechanical clock.  We hope you were paying attention.  If you were, you just got a free concert without the need for headphones.  You may now applaud the Composer (12/11/2006).(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Pawan Suyal to miss upcoming Ranji season

first_imgPraised by none other than Rahul Dravid on his Ranji Trophy debut against Karnataka in 2009, Pawan Suyal made a dream entry into domestic cricket.A rank outsider till the previous season, Suyal picked 13 wickets in his debut season, and signed up for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League in 2010.But things haven’t gone according to plan since.At 21, when he was expected to be ready to make the jump to the next level, a freak knee injury on the eve of Delhi’s Ranji match against Railways in 2010 sees him fighting to regain fitness and get back to running, let alone bowling.Not only has he failed to play a single IPL or Champions League match, he is also certain to miss the upcoming Ranji season as it will take him another three to four months to regain full fitness and get back to his bowling run-up.Suyal said that the timing of the injury couldn’t have been worse. “Injuries might be part and parcel of every sportsperson’s career, but my injury couldn’t have come at a worse time. Not only did I fail to play a role in the Duleep Trophy match last year, I also had to miss the whole fourth season of the IPL,” Suyal told Mail Today from Mumbai where he is undergoing rehabilitation.”The team management at Mumbai Indians felt that it was apt that I get my knee scanned and after the reports came, surgery seemed the most suitable solution. It is irritating when a freak accident can play havoc with your career,” he said.advertisementSuyal had got hit on the knee by the ball resulting in a bad fracture. He believes that taking the injury lightly cost him dear.”While I skipped the match against Railways, I was back in the squad for the match against Mumbai – a grave mistake. I didn’t take the injury too seriously. It was only during the Duleep Trophy match that I realised that I was making an error by taking the injury lightly,” he said.”I went to the Mumbai Indians camp and the management was looking forward to fielding me. But it was frustrating to get up every day hoping that I would get to take the field and then realise that I wasn’t close to being 100 per cent fit.”It was after consulting the team doctors there that I decided to have surgery. And now here I am undergoing rehabilitation and itching to regain full fitness as soon as possible. No cricketer likes to warm the bench due to injury and I am no different,” Suyal said.The left-arm paceman is distraught that he is all set to miss the upcoming domestic season as well.”Recovering fully is very important and that is a lesson I have learnt very early in my career. While the eagerness to get back on to the playing field saw me ignore the knee injury and suffer as a result, I don’t want a repeat of that incident.”So I would much rather recuperate fully and then get back on to the playing field than waste another season with a recurring knee injury. I hope to be fully fit by the end of January – which means I will definitely miss this Ranji season,” Suyal said.last_img read more
