jason: What is a lease abstract and how can it help your business? - 06/22/10 08:05 AM
Most corporate real estate leases consist of several dozen pages and in some cases upwards of a hundred pages or more.  A lease abstract is a 1 or 2 page snap-shot of your lease in an easy to read format.  The process involves reading through your entire lease and abstracting pertinent information.  Some examples of extracted information include the following:
  •  Date Lease Signed
  •  Date Lease Expires
  •  Length of Term
  •  Current Rate Being Paid PSF
  •  Escalation Clause
  •  Termination Options
  •  Security Deposit
  •  Penalty Fees If Any
  •  Renewal Options
  •  Contraction & Expansion Options

jason: Enhance Your Luck - 12/02/08 04:47 AM
By Jon Gordon

"Do you feel lucky?" It's not just one of my favorite Clint Eastwood quotes, it's also an important question each one of us should ask ourselves. Turns out luck, like much in life, has a lot to do with our beliefs and the energy and attitude we project. The luckier we feel and believe we are, the luckier we are.
A great article in Men's Health Magazine by Matthew Teague, which features the latest research from British psychologist Richard Wiseman, author of the Luck Factor, explains that there is a lot more to luck than coincidence or … (7 comments)

jason: What do you think? - Is now the time? - 06/22/08 07:59 AM
It's a simple question.
Is now the time to invest in Real Estate?
Top athletes know when its time to renegotiate their contracts.  Stock brokers know the best time to buy quality stocks.  Oil companies know the best time to tighten the surplus and raise prices.  Gold refineries know the best time to buy used gold.  and the best poker player knows when to push all in... Think about it.  Now is the time to invest in Real Estate.  Is it really going to get worse or are there bountiful opportunities right in front of your very eyes?

jason: Thoughts Over Won Ton Soup - 06/13/08 09:46 AM
Well, it's the end of the second week in my new office and this afternoon I'm doing a bit of reflecting.  It's been a whirlwind, getting back into the groove, the many things I've accomplished in such a short period of time, juggling pretty much everything.  But I'm not complaining and I'm loving every minute of it!
Lets see?  Here's a pretty good list of what I've done:
On the first hour of the first day I attended a 1-hour Continued Education Training course on LEED Accreditation and Green Buildings.  Then I worked on setting up my office, including getting on … (4 comments)

jason: "GREEN" Buildings and Sustainability - What Is It All About and What Does It Mean To Me? - 06/11/08 04:41 AM

Architects draw plans and contractors build buildings, but neither really controls what goes on there. The power of the bank account puts the owner in control of every project. With constantly increasing energy costs along with many other factors more owners are investigating green buildings for themselves.  Green is everywhere today, and is becoming an integral aspect of business strategy, from corporate philosophy to marketing tactics.
A recent national survey of the commercial real estate sector revealed that nearly two-thirds of respondents allocated funds to green initiatives, while the majority said their sustainability investment would increase in 2008. So let's … (0 comments)

jason: Seven Ways to Overcome Negative Sales Stereotypes - 06/10/08 06:50 AM
By Al Uszynski

The public's impression of sales professionals is enlightening, and disheartening. During my time as a professional salesperson, I've heard some interesting opinions from a variety of people.
One I'll never forget happened during a visit to Cornell University where I was conducting job interviews for sales positions. I remember the candidate who told me, "To be good in sales you have to be good at bull-s----ting your customers." I was surprised to hear such a dumb statement from a job seeker, never mind an Ivy Leaguer.
