Throwback Thursday: The Beauty of Details In Milan's Duomo!!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

One of our favorite duomos ( Italian Cathedral) is in Milan Italy, which is dedicated to St. Mary of the Nativity. This cathedral opened in 1385.   It is 520 feet wide and 302 feet tall.  It took 582 years to build. Pictured above is of one of the columns. 

Although, we have been to Milan and this spot several times, we always visit this area, and enjoy focusing on the attention to details. Each time we have spotted something new. And each time we marvel at the skilled artisans who worked with simple tools at their disposal.

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

It is amazing what beautiful work was done with tools and tech that obviously do not meet today's standards. We built the Empire State Building in less than a year around 1930. Today it takes 5 years to approve the plans.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty well stated, It is close over two years of working on a development plan for my client, and we are still quite a bit away from starting to break ground.

Beth Atalay 600 years later it is still standing.  Your comment reminded of an event in Italy where there were two schools built across the street from each other.  One was new and met all the newest and greatest standard.  The other one was built in Roman times, added to during the Renaissance.  When the earthquake hit, the new one was reduced to rubble, the old one no damage whatsoever...give one something to think about.  A

This morning while swimming laps I was looking at the 1970s building next to the California Fitness where I belong.  The building looks dated to me, even though it's less than 50 years old.  However, I look at the timeless beauty of Milan's Duomo, and I only dream that we would built things like that today.  We slap things up now days, and are just as quick to slap them down.

Good afternoon Ron and Alexandra Seigel,

We have stood in almost that same spot several times and always thought the same thing..always some detail to discover that wasn't seen before. Its hard to imagine 600 years later this magnificent cathedral is still standing in all its splendor and appreciated by so many the world over. The Milan Duomo is simply stunning!
