Under their leadership, the Level III – QCs are taught by, and experience, our two Masters.  Dan and Ryan have a combined nineteen years expertise in training clients, teaching at the SuperSlow Zone® Institute, certifying Level I Candidates and now imparting their wisdom and knowledge to the Level III – QCs.

Personal Branding Agency, Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency, To Executive Produce Film, “Jacob’s Turn”

Posted by mattcollins on Aug 30th, 2010

Nick Nanton, Esq. and JW Dicks, Esq., personal branding experts and Co-Founders of Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency, will act as executive producers of upcoming inspiring documentary, “Jacob’s Turn.”

Orlando, Fla. – August 30, 2010 – Co-founders of the Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency and best-selling authors, Nick Nanton, Esq., Celebrity Agent and JW Dicks, Esq., America’s Foremost Expert on Personal Branding for Business Development, are announcing the development of a new heartwarming documentary, “Jacob’s Turn.”  JW Dicks and Nick Nanton will act as executive producers of the film.

The documentary short film, Jacob’s Turn, is a mother’s story of Jacob Titus, her four-year-old boy from the small rural community of Floyds Knobs, Indiana – just outside of Louisville.  Jacob loves to play T-ball, like thousands of kids across the country. Jacob also happens to have Down Syndrome.  The film shows how Jacob’s “turn” at bat and on the field was a thrill for him, but more importantly, an event that transformed the hearts of everyone in his town.

Jacob’s mother wrote an article about his experience – and the way the town came to embrace his triumph.  This article would soon stop the busy, constantly on-the-go Nick Nanton in his tracks, touch his heart and those of numerous high profile business people, and inspire him to executive produce the extraordinary documentary short film based on Patricia’s story.

Nanton is currently working with his extended network of marketing experts to create awareness of “Jacob’s Turn,” through a method of marketing that is usually applied to commercial ventures, but for the first time will be used to launch a charitable campaign – one which he will help benefit children not only with Down Syndrome but a wide variety of special needs. The goal of everyone with an emotional and financial investment in the film is to raise people’s awareness and generate charitable donations that will help these kids receive the assistance they need to lead the best lives they can.

At its heart, however, “Jacob’s Turn” is designed to inspire – to let special needs children and their parents know that the unique challenges they face need not limit the potential to achieve dreams, even small ones that start out on a baseball field in a place like Floyds Knobs.

The seven minute film is now in the hands of top video product and marketing experts, including Mike Koenigs of “Traffic Geyser” and “MainStreet Marketing” fame, and “Big Jason” Henderson, one of the top product launch specialists in the country. The campaign to share “Jacob’s Turn” with the world will begin with an email campaign to literally millions of people, and a push through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media portals of teaser clips – which will ultimately lead to the unveiling of the whole seven-minute film.

Others contributing to the project are Nanton’s partners, JW Dicks & Lindsay Dicks, along with Mike Koenigs, Preston Ely, Baeth Davis, Mark Richter, Bill Gough, Richard Seppala, Dr. Scott Schumann, Darrin Mish and Jared Bonshire.

“Our hope is to help as many kids with special needs as possible,” Nanton says. “I’m optimistic because it was pure serendipity which led me to Jacob’s world in the first place and I feel that we’re all walking through a series of amazing doors that continue to open. Whether this film reaches the millions of people we hope it will reach and raises awareness and money on the scope we intend remains to be seen. It could be a huge success, or simply be known as a great story that touches the hearts of viewers, making them reflect for a moment. For now, we’re simply thrilled that the story turned out so well. It’s exciting to be able to make a difference and to share Jacob’s wonderful story.”

Trash Out Company REO RESQ Founder, Frank Patrick, On Foreclosure Trash Outs and When Lawns Turn To Jungles

Posted by mattcollins on Aug 30th, 2010

Frank Patrick, founder of foreclosure clean out and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, explains how the lack of property preservation leaves foreclosure lawns a growing menace.

Scottsdale, Ariz. – August 30, 2010 – In a recent article by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top property preservation and trash out experts, Frank writes that with the start of summer, foreclosure lawns are turning to jungles, causing these properties to become an eyesore in many American neighborhoods.

In the article titled “Foreclosure Trash Outs: When Lawns Turn To Jungles,” Frank describes how overgrown lawns on REO properties in Florida, Missouri and Illinois, among others, are generating numerous complaints from neighborhood residents.  These areas are experiencing the same problem that other cities all across America are dealing with – finding the responsible party for foreclosed homes that are in limbo.

“Many lenders are delaying foreclosures to allow the borrower time to apply for a loan modification or attempt a short sale.  Many times the borrower simply gives up during the process and abandons the home.  It is during this period of time in which the home is not yet foreclosed on and the borrower is not caring for it that the lawns get out of control. Many in the industry speculate that some lenders are procrastinating when it comes to foreclosing on these properties even after they know that the borrower has given up and has no intention of continuing to maintain the property.   Since the owner has abandoned the property and the lender has not taken it back, the grass and weeds grow out of control.  But blaming the banks is far from the whole answer – the unprecedented flood of foreclosures has left them overwhelmed,” wrote Frank Patrick.

“Once a property preservation company has been hired to perform a foreclosure trash out, they usually have the added responsibility of regularly mowing the lawn and maintaining the home to the local housing codes. This enables the home to keep up appearances and prevents the appearance of a whole neighborhood falling into disrepair,” Frank continued.

Frank’s nationwide franchise, REORESQ™, is helping entrepreneurs all across the country start up and successfully operate property preservation franchises.  Frank believes that 2010 will provide incredible opportunities for field service companies, property preservation contractors, and trash out businesses.

In addition to being the founder of the property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, Frank Patrick is also the founder of American Society of REO Specialists™ (ASREOS). Patrick was recently featured in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today for his expertise and success in the REO Sales and REO agent training industry.

About Frank Patrick:

Frank Patrick began his real estate career in 2000 after a 12-year stint in corporate America as a sales manager.  As a new real estate agent Frank knew that he wanted to find a niche within the real estate industry.  After months of research Frank decided to specialize in REO, an acronym for bank owned foreclosed homes.  Frank quickly became one of the top REO agents in the nation averaging over 100 transactions per year for the last 9 years.  In 2007 Frank’s production soared to over 214 sales.

In 2004 Frank and his brother Scott Patrick started a property preservation company to offer maintenance and repair services to banks with foreclosed homes.  Frank’s solid understanding of the REO industry and Scott’s 20+ years in the construction business was a recipe for success.  This year their property preservation business is on track to gross over one million dollars in revenue.  Today Frank manages his REO Real Estate Brokerage, REO Renegades an REO agent training business, his trade association The American Society of REO Specialists and is developing a national Franchise Property Preservation company, REO ResQ.

Luxury Homes Solutions and Marketing Stresses Importance of Positive Thinking

Posted by mattcollins on Aug 27th, 2010

Luxury Homes Solutions and Marketing, a luxury home marketing company, writes about the importance of staying positive, whether you are looking to buy or sell luxury real estate.

Calgary, Canada – August 27, 2010Luxury Homes Solutions and Marketing, a luxury home marketing company, recently published an article on their website, http://www.LuxuryHomesSuccess.com, about the importance of staying positive. The article, titled “Luxury Real Estate – The Importance of Staying Positive” highlights some of the positive aspects of buying and selling luxury homes.  Below is an excerpt from the blog:

It is easy sometimes for homeowners to get overwhelmed by negative news and downward trends in the real estate market, including luxury real estate.  In light of the recent news about home values across America hitting new lows, it is important to try your best to stay positive.

Owning a home is still one of the most sound and time-tested investments one can make.  The luxury real estate market always goes through cycles – values go up, values go down.  At each of these points, it is important to note that at any given time, either the buyer or the seller is at an advantage.

Just like any business, marketing is the key to creating value for your luxury home.  Finding a luxury real estate marketing company to help you find the right buyers is extremely important.  There are many real estate marketing solutions that can help match the right property with the right buyer.  If your property is exactly what a specific buyer is looking for, then it is more likely that you can sell your home for a more acceptable amount.

Luxury Homes Solutions and Marketing specializes in luxury homes marketing and solutions internationally. They help clients with their proprietary cutting edge marketing strategies and their effectiveness at moving luxury homes in a very timely manner.

“What I want to encourage you to do is forget what you know and start thinking about what your audience knows–their knowledge set is very different from yours. You don’t know where to begin because you think everyone knows what you know, it feels like common sense you know it so well, but it’s not,” write Dicks and Nanton.

“The most profound information is the stuff that’s simple, basic and easy to comprehend and most likely, you’ve forgotten about it because you know the basics so well,” continued the authors.

Trash Out Company REO RESQ Founder, Frank Patrick, Discusses The Danger of REO Properties With Neglected Pools

Posted by mattcollins on Aug 27th, 2010

Frank Patrick, founder of foreclosure clean out and property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, writes about how neglected swimming pools from foreclosed properties are posing a threat to neighborhoods.

Scottsdale, Ariz. – August 27, 2010 – In a recent article by Frank Patrick, one of the country’s top property preservation and trash out experts, Frank writes that with foreclosures hitting another record high in May2010, REO (Real Estate Owned) homes are causing a huge demand for property preservation services.  The summer months also help cause a greater need for these services – specifically when it comes to overgrown lawns and neglected swimming pools.

In the article titled “Foreclosure Trash Outs: Problem Pools,” Frank describes how neglected swimming pools on REO properties are creating a neighborhood health and safety hazard that becomes markedly worse in the hot summer months.  “Unfortunately, because there are still so many homes in limbo all across America – the residents have left, but the banks have yet to officially foreclose – tens of thousands of swimming pools aren’t attended to,” remarked Frank.

Frank writes, “The biggest problem, perhaps, is being able to locate these vacant homes to attend to these recurring and dangerous problems. The processing time for foreclosures is becoming increasingly longer, due to the record-setting numbers, and that means more and more homes are “off the radar.”

“The immediate need for property preservation companies to perform foreclosure trash outs and other vital tasks such as pool maintenance is obvious. Demand for these companies is already at an all-time high and a proven lucrative career choice in these tough economic times,” Frank continued.

Frank’s nationwide franchise, REORESQ™, is helping entrepreneurs all across the country start up and successfully operate property preservation franchises.  Frank believes that 2010 will provide incredible opportunities for field service companies, property preservation contractors, and trash out businesses. Frank and his brother, Scott Patrick, have already trained many franchisees in foreclosure trash outs and launched incredibly successful property preservation careers for people who had never done that kind of work before.

In addition to being the founder of the property preservation franchise REO RESQ™, Frank Patrick is also the founder of American Society of REO Specialists™ (ASREOS). Patrick was recently featured in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today for his expertise and success in the REO Sales and REO agent training industry.

Dawn McIntyre, Founder of Boldly Beautiful International, Announces the August New 10 Woman of the Month

Posted by mattcollins on Aug 26th, 2010

The founder of Boldly Beautiful International and author of The New 10 and expert on redefining beauty for women, Dawn McIntyre, writes a new blog, The New 10 Celebrity: Alicia Silverstone, relaying the message of passionate and purpose-filled living.

CALGARY, ALBERTA – August 26, 2010- Dawn McIntyre, founder and CEO of Boldly Beautiful® International, a self esteem, confidence building and spiritual growth company, recently published a blog on her website, www.boldlybeautiful.com about the importance of pursuing a deeply healthy lifestyle. The blog, titled “The New 10 Celebrity: Alicia Silverstone,” explains how women can learn from Alicia’s pursuit for energy boosting daily eating habits.

Dawn writes, “Alicia also poured over scientific research and holistic studies on food’s affects on the body. What she found revolutionized her eating habits so she can enjoy a more energy-filled daily life. Vegetarianism – and subsequently veganism and even a more concentrated macro diet – have changed her forever. Not only does her transformed diet protect animals, but she enjoys more consistent daily energy, leaner weight, refreshed skin, and strengthened hair and nails.”

“The great news? You don’t have to support animal rights or refuse meat and dairy at dinnertime to follow in this New 10 woman’s footsteps… I’m not saying that tofu and soy milk are the answer for every woman. But I encourage you to research your own solutions to daily habits that boost your energy, confidence and health.” argues McIntyre.

Boldly Beautiful® International specializes in helping women and teens build their self confidence and grow spiritually. Through a variety of coaching programs, they help clients with ­­developing personal intuition, learning to see their inner beauty and becoming masters of their life dreams.
