Wordfull Wednesday: Incredible Edibles and Views in Milan!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

We marveled at the intricately accurate reproduction in chocolate artistry of designer shoes and handbags at the Rinascente Department Store in Milan. On this top floor you can find all types of Italian delicacies including summer truffles, which were in season.

It is well worth the visit to their top floor, as they have a terrace restaurant and a bar with this magnificent view of the Duomo.  It was a delight to sit there sipping our Pellegrino while enjoying this magnificent masterpiece on a beautiful sunny day!

 

Happy Wednesday to all!

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.

Kat Palmiotti there is no doubt that chocolate is an art form.   To make all those shoes and bags requires concentration and a knowledge of architecture to make sure that nothing falls over.  A

Joe Pryor if you are doing a tour (with a tour guide) be sure it includes a visit to La Scala, or better yet get a ticket for a performance.  It is not just an opera house, it is an amazing structure.  I would also recommend the Leornardo da Vinci museum...we can also recommend some great restaurants, if you would like that.  A

Hannah Williams the only sweets we eat are a square or two of 85% dark chocolate.  Otherwise, neither one of us is big on desserts, we prefer the cheese course than the sweet course.  A

Michael Jacobs we bought a couple of 85% chocolate bars, and that was it for our shopping.  We really enjoyed being on the terrace.  Since it was still morning some of the crowd was having breakfast.  A
