Here is our latest photo footage of the Occupy Philly movement. Following their Wednesday eviction from City Hall, Occupy plans on marching from City Hall to Independence Hall at 2 p.m. today. According to this Philly.com article,  the eight week demonstration has cost the city an estimated $1,052,000, most of which was spent on police overtime.

Real Estate Negotiation - What We Can Learn from The "Super" Committee and Occupy Philly
I love to negotiate.  I love to sell real estate.  Day or night.  Weekday or weekend.  It is what I do.  And I am one of the best in Philadelphia.  It is a skill.  Part of that skill is to know when to stop and to know when to recommend a deal to your buyer or seller client and NOT TO OVER-NEGOTIATE.  That is when it becomes an art.  And that is when you become a true deal-maker.  Over-negotiation can be a deal-killer.

Why is Occupy Philly Censoring on Facebook ?
It came to my surprise today that my comments were deleted from Occupy Philly Facebook's page.  And needless to say, I am unable to make any new comments.   I noticed when I went to the page, I had to "relike" the page.  What I find very surprising here is that this was supposed to be a movement that prides itself on the Freedom of Speech and democracy, NOT censorship, exclusion and a form of big brother!  

Yes, I have been both a supporter and a critic of Occupy Philly.  I have written several … (9 comments)

Occupy Philly - An Interview with Occupy Protesters
As our blog readers know, we have been keeping up with the Occupy Philly movement.  We are thrilled that the movement is raising awareness across the country and even nationally in regards to the state of the economy, the lack of jobs, government bailouts and the list goes on and on.   To hear directly from Occupy folks themselves, I interviewed Derek and Natalie at City Hall to get their views and opinions.  It sounds like they are here to stay for as long as it takes!
 

Moving forward, if the Occupy movement goes … (3 comments)

Occupy Philly - Topic of Councilmen Candidates Debate
It was interesting when I was at the WHYY sponsored debate that the very first question was how did each candidate think that Mayor Michael Nutter was handling Occupy Philly? The fact that this movement has grown so fast and created so much awareness and chatter to be the very question of this debate I found to be quite remarkable.   Whether it is what voters are interested in, I am not sure.  But it certainly is relevant for today, right now as this could go on for quite some time...

 Occupy Philly - Ignorant Americans or Americans Against Ignorance and Greed?
I originally had mixed feelings about Occupy Philly and Occupy Wall Street, or to be honest, I was negative about it.  I mean I kept thinking to myself the protesters have it wrong, they should be protesting against Congress and Capitol Hill instead of big banks and corporations!   So as usual, I am bantering on my Facebook and Twitter and have some threads that go 70 plus comments long with some very interesting discussion.   It really gets me thinking - who are these "protesters" and who am I to say … (16 comments)
