Car rental fraud victim exposes crucial photographic proof to show humanity the shocking subsequent vehicle damage used as part of highly-refined theft scam

The most important advice I can offer to any car rental customer is to take substantial photographs of the vehicle condition at the origination and the conclusion of the rental”

— David Howe, National Car Rental 'ding and dent' scam victim

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the photographic proof of rental condition during the moment-in-time when the vehicle was returned to the crime scene at SW Florida Fort Myers International airport National Car Rental check-in location, as well as the subsequent photographic evidence revealing the shocking vehicle damage that occurred in the care of tortfeasor Enterprise Holdings.

The subsequent damage was conspicuously made in a close and convenient proximity to the ‘wear and tear’ that was part of an overall complex 'ding and dent' scam intended to financially implicate the crime victim through the origination of a one-way rental secured with a business credit card. This damage was a ploy designed to create an illusion of a legitimate claim to support a substantial money demand that included aggressive tactics to gain access to the victim's credit card and insurance company for undisputed and prompt cash settlement.

The damage was later photographed and then inserted onto a PDF by the Enterprise ‘Damage Recovery Unit’ with repeated financial demands directed at victim David Howe for payment of $502.80, an amount which Florida law may declare as felony grand theft under current statute. And in the most brazen effort to hasten the fraudulent payment repeatedly demanded by tortfeasor, the crime victim was threatened to have his credit severely impacted by a third-party collection agency if the illicit money was not paid to 'satisfy the claim'.

Although egregious beyond imagination is the photographic evidence revealing the subsequent damage, it’s only a mere piece in a larger corporate cover-up, including an incredible under-oath written statement directing law enforcement investigators to the WRONG VEHICLE.

In addition to a comprehensive hour-long presentation provided to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Consumer Protection Director Victoria Butler and senior investigators in Tampa, Florida, the complex systematic scheme and criminal evidence was shared with a field representative for United States Senator Marco Rubio and later communicated through an in-depth presentation to Mr. Rubio's legislative staff in Washington D.C. (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170318005007/en).

• See the photo taken at crime scene revealing nearly invisible, yet normal, ‘wear and tear’. The photo was sent real-time via the Verizon VTEXT server to the manager on duty after Howe became suspicious of the ‘ding and dent’ scam. The single photo established an uncontroverted record of the vehicle condition at rental check-in and protected the victim beyond reproach:


• See the subsequent photo that was emailed to crime victim Howe in a PDF from the Enterprise ‘Damage Recovery Unit’ with a financial demand of $502.80. The photograph reveals actual damage that could not have been the responsibility of the crime victim. It was the basis of a law enforcement investigation and meetings with lawmakers:


“The most important advice I can offer to any car rental customer is to take substantial photographs of the vehicle condition at the origination and the conclusion of the rental,” said David Howe, National Car Rental crime victim and survivor. “There may be many instances when agents will advise that ‘anything smaller than a golf ball is okay’. It’s critical that consumers blatantly ignore any instruction to dismiss minor 'wear and tear' and to instead take photos of every square inch of the assigned vehicle, inside and outside and even checking under-carriage to help mitigate easy-to-commit fraud by predatory rental agencies.

“And that recommendation cannot be made more strongly for each and every rental because there’s a pathetic lack of uniform and predictable standards for the car rental industry that places consumers at incredible risk of financial exposure with virtually no due process rights — even in cases of clear and convincing fraud,” Howe added.

“Of course, I hope to change that with my own criminal victimization,” Howe concluded. “In fact, my past efforts – as well as planned future efforts — with Congress and state lawmakers has proved to be profoundly therapeutic following what is undeniably the most abusive and anger-provoking life event I have ever experienced.”

Intermountain Healthcare Donates 6,000 Books to Utah Children

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Healthcare is donating 6,000 books to at-risk children. The donation supports organizations in Utah dedicated to childhood literacy and development, including the Salt Lake County Health Department and the Reach Out and Read program.

“Community organizations will receive books, as will our pediatric clinics and newborn intensive care units, so we can encourage reading to children right from the beginning,” said Mikelle Moore, Intermountain senior vice president of Community Health.

Intermountain’s Community Giving program provided funding for nearly four thousand books, while Intermountain leaders from across the system contributed an additional 2,100 books. Donations included familiar titles such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Goodnight Moon, and Where the Wild Things Are. Nearly 30 percent of all donated titles were printed in languages other than English.

The Salt Lake County Health Department received books in support of their home visitation programs. “We provide approximately 4,500 visits per year,” said Kami Peterson, assistant division director of Family Health. “A lot of the families that we visit…in Salt Lake County are low-income families and don’t have access to books. Being able to give them a book and talk about literacy is really important.”

Caroline Moreno, education program manager with Salt Lake County Human Services, was optimistic about the impact the donation will have on the community. “Reading to a kid when they’re just born, when they’re five years old, when they’re 10 years old, is super important for brain development,” she said.

The research agrees with her. A 2016 study found that 3-year-olds whose parents read to them from an early age were significantly less likely to be aggressive or hyperactive. Follow up research determined the positive effects persisted as those children were entering kindergarten. Children whose families continued to read to them were less likely to have behavioral problems or experience trouble with concentration, key indicators of success in school.

Reach Out and Read, a nonprofit organization that incorporates books into pediatric care, will also receive supplies. The organization’s 34 Utah locations, roughly half of which operate out of Intermountain clinics, serve about 41,000 children annually.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Honors Top Partners and Dedicated Supporters

Lifetime Achievement Award Goes to National Board Member

TAMPA, FLA., UNITED STATES, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America honors the top corporate partners and individual leaders who make significant contributions to help the organization serve children by matching them in impactful mentoring relationships with caring adult volunteers. During the 2018 National Conference Awards Gala presented by Comcast NBCUniversal and held on June 28, BBBSA honored Alan J. Bernon, Gary Moore, the Federated Insurance Companies, and the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.

“Each of these award winners has contributed significantly to our Network and our National Office, helping us increase our impact on communities,” said Pam Iorio, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

Charles G. Berwind Lifetime Achievement Award

As a member of the National Board, the Board of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston, and as a longtime supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star, Alan Bernon has been a consistent ambassador and supporter for Big Brothers Big Sisters for decades. He has provided crucial support for the National Office, building it into a thriving organization.

“I have had the honor and pleasure to serve on numerous nonprofit boards over the past three decades, probably two dozen, but none have meant more to me than the privilege of being part of this organization,” Bernon said.

Community Impact Award

Federated Insurance began the Federated Challenge in 2004. Through the annual event, which includes a black tie gala, an auction, and a golf tournament, Federated Insurance raises over $2.5 million per year for the three Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in Minnesota and has raised more than $32 million for Big Brothers Big Sisters in total, now including funds for the National Office.

“We have chosen, as a company, to pay 100 percent of all the expenses of the [Federated Challenge] gala, the golf, the prizes, so that every single dollar raised in the auction and every single dollar given by our corporate sponsors goes to the three Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies,” said Jeff Fetters, Chairman and CEO of Federated Insurance. In June, Fetters joined the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America National Board of Directors.

President’s Award

The highest partner honor of the night went to the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation for its partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Not only did they provide the funding for Big Brothers Big Sisters’ strategic planning process, the product of which was the five-year strategic plan, Bigger Impact 2022, but they also invested $2.725 million in various strategic initiatives from technology to training.

The S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation envisions children and youth developing the knowledge, skills, and character to explore and understand the world around them, growing into caring, informed, and productive adults. “We have a National Character Initiative, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is one of 13 organizations that we have invested in,” said Arron Jiron, the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation Associate Program Director for Education, who accepted the award on behalf of the Foundation.

Common Good Award

Gary Moore of the law firm Moore Strickland, who has worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters for more than a decade and provides invaluable service as national coordinating legal counsel in child protection matters, received the Common Good Award. Moore Strickland has supported Big Brothers Big Sisters of America by providing pro bono legal counsel of the highest quality to our youth protection and leadership teams.

“I come away from this experience with a feeling—of all of the clients I have represented, of all of the great legal experiences I have had, nothing has given me more pride and more feeling of good faith, around the country,” Moore said. “You don’t build walls, you open doors in the minds of children.”

Impact of "IP Literacy" is the Focus of 2018 IP Awareness Summit at Columbia University

The Center for IP Understanding will hold IPAS 2018, a global event devoted to increasing IP understanding for all

IPAS 2018 will explore the role of patents and other IP rights in a in an information-driven world and look at ways to communicate IP’s vital link to innovation, commerce and society”

— Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer, Aon IP Solutions

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU) announced today that it is holding this year’s Intellectual Property Awareness Summit in New York on November 29 at Columbia University in the School of Journalism.

Confusion about the purpose and use of inventions, authored works and designs, and their rights, has led to widespread IP theft on the part of both individuals and businesses. Uncertainty inhibits innovation and competition, increases frustration and discourages investment. IPAS 2018 will examine ways to improve audiences’ basic IP awareness and appreciation.

The second annual Intellectual Property Awareness Summit – IP Literacy in a Digital World – will examine the impact of information and speed on how intellectual property is seen and often taken for granted, and ways to address it through education and the media.

IPAS 2017 (Enhancing Value Through Understanding), held at Illinois Institute of Technology/ Chicago-Kent College of Law, drew participants and panelists from the U.S., Europe and Asia, and provided opportunities to network and share ideas. Discussions included best ways to address the widespread confusion over IP rights, and the growing acceptance of IP theft.

Participants included Hon. Randall Rader, former Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (ret.); Q. Todd Dickinson, ex-United Stated Under Secretary of Commerce, USPTO Director, Scott Frank, CEO of the IP Businesses at AT&T, Stephen Haber Director of Stamford’s IP² think tank and David Teece, UC Berkeley economist and IP advocate.

IPAS 2018 attendees will include IP holders, executives, educators, creators, service providers and IP organizations. Space is limited. To request an invitation, write explore@understandingip.org. Participants can expect interaction, networking and exploring the role of such groups as government, the media, and educators in making IP rights more intelligible, and the impact of failing to.

“Knowing what IP rights achieve is not just for lawyers,” said Bruce Berman, Chairman and founder of CIPU, an independent non-profit hosting IPAS 2018. “Patents and other IP are too important to ignore and not that difficult for most people to understand. IP is more easily accessible and easily infringed than ever, and many believe it is simply there for the taking.”

IP rights are central to more than 200 years of U.S. history. However, they have grown weaker and less certain over the past decade. Other nations are keenly aware. China, for example, has dramatically improved the reliability of its patent system and increased its investment in technology, which is threatening to dethrone the U.S. as the “go-to” nation for innovation and new ideas. A range of people and institutions that rely on IP need to know what is at stake and how to fix it.

“IPAS 2018 will explore the role of patents and other IP rights in a in an information-driven world,” said Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer at Aon IP Solutions and a CIPU board member. “Everyone should be able to recognize and respect IP rights. This event will examine how to improve basic IP awareness and appreciation. IPAS speakers and panelists will look at ways to communicate IP’s vital link to innovation, commerce and society.”

About the Center for IP Understanding

The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of IP rights and their impact on people’s lives. CIPU provides information, conducts research and facilitates activities that seek to make IP more intelligible, enhance value and deter theft. The Center also tracks attitudes toward IP rights, including patents, copyrights, and trademarks, and through outreach, provides an education framework for understanding how IP promotes competition and creates jobs.

Trish Martin of Neuroplasticity & Education United to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

JENISON, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Our democracy depends on literacy. We need a literate society to be able to make informed decisions. But according to recent national statistics, the current reading proficiency score for fourth graders is 32 percent.

Trish Martin is the founder of Neuroplasticity & Education United, where she works with school districts across the country, training teachers how to teach reading by unlocking the power of neuroplasticity.

“We try to make reading as addictive as a video game,” says Martin. “When kids come to us entering kindergarten, they come wanting to learn.”

After 25 years as a speech pathologist, Martin has spent the last 14 years teaching and promoting the fundamental building blocks of literacy through a revolutionary, scientifically and evidence-based instructional series. She developed the “Neuroplasticity: Rewiring the Brain” series and has authored multiple instructional curriculum books, student workbooks along with extensive support materials and instructional videos. She is now expanding to provide parents the support materials they need to help their child get to the next level.

The English language has 44 sounds and approximately 256 ways to spell them. English has four layers: Anglo-Saxon, Latin, Greek and French. Once we get to fourth grade, the words the child is being asked to read will be 60 percent Latin or Greek in origin.

“The educational system at the university level rarely teaches the subtler aspects of how the language goes together, or how to actually teach a child to read,” says Martin. “We have not provided the necessary instruction to the child for them to be able to read to their potential.”

“If I were to send my granddaughter to a piano teacher, the first thing the piano teacher would do is teach the keys of the piano. So if I'm going to be an elementary teacher, I should probably know how many sounds there are in the English language that I need to teach and understand that words are built by linking syllables together.”

Of course, teachers face many challenges. The brain is a use-it-or-lose-it system; whatever neurological pathways are used the most will build the strongest highways. Children today are spending approximately four hours each day in front of a visual screen. This in turn builds powerful visual roads in the brain. Unfortunately children spend significantly less time than children in prior generations processing oral language and developing their auditory system. They are also spending less time stimulating their imagination which also requires language.

“They have weak roads in the brain,” says Martin. “Once you understand where things live in the brain, you can figure out how to design a task to build that road. We have to train teachers how to do that. You can use any content you want. I use literacy.”

Martin says unlocking the reading code is not just about the children that struggle.

“I have spent years fine-tuning these lessons, so any teacher or parent is capable of improving their child's capacity to read,” says Martin. “Every child benefit, and your high-end reader just explodes.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Trish Martin in an interview with Jim Masters on July 19th and July 26th at 11am EDT.

This grant will be significant in helping us achieve success in filling these voids.”
Rizzo-Ranieri and RCS Development Manager Julie Falcucci will join approximately 300 other guests at a reception at TradeCenter 128 in Woburn to celebrate the grant recipients.

This year’s diverse group of grant recipients represents a wide variety of causes, including autism education and programs, homelessness prevention and affordable housing, violence prevention, and food insecurity. Most of the grants will be paid over two to five years.
The $100K for 100 program supports nonprofits that are based in and primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. Through this place-based initiative, Cummings Foundation aims to give back in the area where it owns commercial buildings, all of which are managed, at no cost to the Foundation, by its affiliate Cummings Properties. Founded in 1970 by Bill Cummings of Winchester, the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm leases and manages 11 million square feet of space, the majority of which exclusively benefits the Foundation.

“We are indebted to the nonprofit organizations like Realizing Children’s Strengths that have a meaningful positive impact on the local communities where our colleagues and clients live and work,” said Joel Swets, Cummings Foundation’s Executive Director. “We are delighted to invest in their important programs and services.”

Chaitanya Cherukuri Gives Advice on the Best Practices to Promote a Photography Business

Renowned photographer offers advice on what’s worked for him when promoting his photography business.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Photographers can find a need wherever they can point their camera. Wedding photography is a large market, but professional photography doesn’t even require the person to leave their home. With the right tools and promotion, anything is possible for a photographer. The world is theirs to capture, both on film and through the entrepreneurial endeavor.

Yet, for Chaitanya Cherukuri, one of the largest hurdles to overcome while building his photography business was the promotion. Cherukuri has the passion and the talent, but his promotion skills needed work. However, after years of trial and error, Cherukuri has found a promotion plan that works for him. This plan enables him to enjoy his passion while sharing it with potential customers. Here is Cherukuri’s best advice on practices to promote a photography business.

Give Referral Bonuses

Referral Bonuses don’t (shouldn’t) cost the photographer much, but it will mean a lot to clients. If a business has an enticing referral business, this helps the business get repeat customers and new customers. It’s maximizing the potential for advertising while minimizing the workload.

After all, many of the clients a photographer has will have friends who are also looking for a photographer for the same reasons. Weddings, family photo shoots, birthdays, graduations, prom…regardless of the occasion, clients have friends that are looking for referrals. If a client is happy with the work a photographer provides, they’re likely to give a referral anyway. (Word of mouth is still a powerful promotion tool.) Yet, by offering them a referral bonus, they’ll be even happier to give the photographer’s name and number to a friend.

Create a Unique Website

To have a meaningful business, it’s important that an entrepreneur has a website. Especially for a photographer, who might not have a brick and mortar storefront, a website legitimizes them. This is also a centralized location for all a photographer’s works, ideas, personality, and social network platforms. This is the photographer’s space and should be treated as such, helping to showcase their creativity and talent.

Start (and Maintain) a Blog

A photographer might not think a blog is important, but it’s essential in connecting with an audience. Even if the posts are primarily pictures, that’s okay. Although, Chaitanya Cherukuri encourages photographers to get creative with their blogs. Post blogs with the interest and intrigue of the client in mind. After all, catering to the client is the best way to grow a business.

Throw in Something Special

Again, this shouldn’t cost the photographer a lot of money, but throwing a special thank-you gift into orders is appreciated. This something special can be an extra print, a framed photo, or even a digital version of the album the client bought in physical form. This gift should be simply that, a gift, thanking the client for patronizing the business.

In summation, Chaitanya Cherukuri knows that it can be difficult. Pursuing the art of a craft like photography, while also figuring out how to promote a photography business. However, by following Cherukuri’s advice, photographers will be able to combine these practices into one. After all, photography is both a business and a calling. So, by showing people the depth of a photographer’s passion is to promote their business and their calling.

Chaitanya Cherukuri Stresses Importance of Globalizing Your Customer Base

Chaitanya Cherukuri 8

Globalization is everywhere and Chaitanya Cherukuri says it’s time to invite it into your customer base.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Entrepreneurs are always looking to expand their customer base. After all, more customer potential equates to more profit. Yet, most entrepreneurs, especially in the United States, focus on a domestic customer base. According to Chaitanya Cherukuri, that’s literally cutting out the rest of the world and it’s hurting your bottom line.

Cherukuri, a serial entrepreneur knows that globalization is easier to attain than ever before. The most successful startups utilize international customer base effectively. This is the case for King (the company who created Candy Crush). This startup was built in Stockholm, Sweden. In 2017, Stockholm averaged an international customer base of forty-six-percent. It’s these statistics that solidify the importance of globalizing a business’ customer base.

Solidifying Business Reputation

Chaitanya Cherukuri knows that the obvious reason for going global is to grow your customer base. Although, by globalizing a business, it’s also solidifying the business’ reputation. The more people who know about a business, the more opportunities it has. A nationally acclaimed company status is great. Yet, being an internationally acclaimed company opens doors that business owners likely have never dreamed of.

Foreign Investments

The globalized opportunities for a business lead directly into a discussion about foreign investments. Foreign investors are more forthcoming with information about their portfolios if a company is internationally known. When those doors start to open, it leads business owners into a whole new world of possibilities.

Chaitanya Cherukuri admits there are a plethora of foreign investors who are always looking for a new prospect. If the business is well-known, it’s possible a foreign investor will approach the owner for a stake in the company. Usually, investors will wait until an entrepreneur comes to them. However, there are times when an investor becomes inspired.

Performance Security

The more locations a business has, especially internationally, the more security the owner possesses. Having different markets helps lessen the pressure of being successful in a specific market. When a national company’s product doesn’t provide the return that was expected, the company is in trouble. However, when an international company’s product doesn’t connect with their domestic audience, they have other options. What might not catch on in an American market could become the next big craze internationally. Although, if a company never expands, they’ll never have that chance.

An Increase in Talent Selection

Finally, Chaitanya Cherukuri wants business owners to know that sales are not the only benefit to globalizing a customer base. Another major advantage is that going global expands the talent search for a company. There are many talented people across the world. Therefore, when a company goes global, their reputation will garner a new selection of talent. This could also lead to many new prospects.

To close, Chaitanya Cherukuri wants business owners of all sizes to explore the possibility of going global. There are so many benefits, even for startups and small businesses, that it’s a waste to forgo the investment. Globalization is happening, regardless of whether entrepreneurs embrace it. Eventually, there won’t be a choice, but now, business owners can learn the techniques of globalizing while it evolves. That, Chaitanya Cherukuri believes, is the best option of all.

Luis Alberto Peluso explains how he brought a taste of Las Vegas to Buenos Aires

As a lottery and casino industry expert, Luis Alberto Peluso is no stranger to the bright lights and high stakes of resort cities such as Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Indeed, it was precisely this sort of atmosphere which Luis Alberto Peluso was tasked with bringing to the Argentine city of Mar del Plata, part of Buenos Aires Province and its second-largest metropolitan area.

Already a major fishing port and popular with tourists, Mar del Plata was, however, yet to see its first officially organized poker tournament. "Mar del Plata is Argentina's most prominent seaside beach resort and the country's seventh largest city," explains Peluso. "I was tasked with delivering a taste of Las Vegas to the resort as it prepared for the much-anticipated arrival of the Latin American Poker Tour."

With Las Vegas the inspiration, Peluso sent his team directly to the Nevada city to prepare for upcoming events. A stark contrast to Mar del Plata's idyllic coastal setting, the industry expert's team, however, returned from the Mojave Desert well prepared for the task ahead.

Welcoming the Latin American Poker Tour, Peluso and his team was to preside over a tournament boasting a top prize of over $380,000.

As Peluso had hoped, the event went without a hitch, widely hailed as a great success, and with the six-figure winnings going to British-based German poker player Dominik Nitsche who flew into Argentina for the occasion.

"There was much fanfare surrounding the PokerStars sponsored event," reveals Peluso. "It was the first time Mar del Plata had seen anything quite like it, despite having hosted many high profile sporting events in the past, and I'm confident that we delivered on bringing a slice of Las Vegas to the Argentine coast."

Explaining the city's aim in more detail, Peluso recalls, "Las Vegas, where my team went to prepare, is a city whose economy is primarily driven by gambling, tourism, and conventions. This was a key goal for Buenos Aires, and in particular Mar del Plata, at the time."

"The resort," he continues, "sought to grow its economy through the entertainment and gaming sectors, which in turn would bolster its already healthy restaurant and retail industries."

Highly knowledgeable and himself a fan of games such as poker, blackjack, and roulette, Peluso goes on to suggest that it's poker which generally provides the biggest draw. "I believe that much of the success of poker comes from its status as a game of skill and ability, rather than just a game of chance."

He continues, "It's a mathematical game, like a variation of chess. That's what I most like and enjoy about it."

As of 2018, estimates suggest that there are upwards of 65 million regular poker players in the United States alone, with more people now enjoying the game than either golf or tennis. "It's growing in popularity elsewhere, too," Peluso remarks, "from South America to Europe and right across Asia."

"Mar del Plata has hosted FIFA World Cup games, the Pan American Games, and the Rugby World Cup Sevens in the not too distant past," adds Peluso, wrapping up, "however this was to be its first officially recognized poker tournament, and I'm incredibly proud to have been involved in making it such a success."

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Real estate is an interesting market. It fluctuates, like any other market. Yet, it has the potential to help people make money. Changing people’s lives is also inherent in the business. Both brokers, buyers, and sellers all have a stake in the real estate market. However, their gains and losses are significantly different.

These are secrets that brokers, buyers, and sellers don’t talk about. These secrets are such, because there’s a certain stigma in this industry, that Fleisher wants to abolish. So, Danielle Paige Fleischer reveals these five real estate broker secrets to get each party to understand one another.

1. Appealing Scents Captivate Buyers

Scents are a direct trigger to memories. Therefore, they can make or break a sale extremely quick. After all, no one wants their new home to smell like dirty laundry, pets, or even plug-in scents. They don’t want to smell a bad scent, obviously, but they also don’t want it to smell like a transaction. When potential buyers enter a home, they want it to smell like home.

Fortunately, there are certain ways sellers can make their house smell universally homey. One of the ways is to bake cookies. This helps welcome guests and gives them a good first impression of the home.

2. Open Houses Don’t Benefit Sellers

When a real estate broker hosts an open house, it seems like it should be extremely beneficial to the seller. Unfortunately, the only promotion an open house provides is to the real estate broker. That’s it.

Danielle Paige Fleischer explains that there is an extremely low probability that a real potential buyer will attend an open house. Instead, the real estate broker gets to show off their skills. The likelihood of returns is much greater for a real estate broker to receive another client from an open house.

3. Commission is Negotiable

Real Estate Brokers want to make as much commission on a home sale as possible. That makes sense, as we all want to make as much money as we can for our hard work. However, this pursuit can often lead to professionals telling clients their commission is non-negotiable.

Danielle Paige Fleischer explains that if a Real Estate Broker tells a client that, they should be leery of them. That’s a bold-faced lie. A commission is always negotiable. If the commission is discussed upfront, before a contract is signed, there’s always room for negotiation.

4. Empty Homes Will Stay Empty

There’s a belief that an empty room will make the house look bigger. According to Danielle Paige Fleischer, this simply isn’t true. In fact, a house without furniture is less likely to sell. This is because it makes it harder for buyers to visualize their available space. When a home has furniture in it, buyers have an easier time imagining their own belongings in the house.

5. Staging is Essential for Success

Finally, Danielle Paige Fleischer explains that staging a house is the best way to promote a successful sale. Showing the people who come into the home the potential it has is paramount. So, clean up the kitchen and pose the house in a family-picture style. That’s a surefire way to attract the interest of buyers.

In summation, Danielle Paige Fleischer is hoping to squash myths with these secrets. Real estate is Fleisher’s passion and she is hopeful for its future. Ultimately, Fleisher wants to help the triad of real estate grow with transparency.
