Friday Photo: A Great View, 113 Steps, And a Feline Companion!

On this recent business trip to Europe, we had a one night stay in Lyon, France, prior to our flight to Milan, Italy.  Pictured above is the view of this lovely city from the rooftop pool of our 11 room hotel, which was once a nunnery, and restored to perfection.  The hotel was located on a hilltop.

In order to visit the old part of the city, we had to walk down the street and down 113 steps to the shops and restaurants.  We did it twice once to explore and the second time to dine.

As we sat down at one of the bar tables to have an aperitif (a cocktail) before dinner, I noticed that I had a sleepy companion next to me.  He purred in approval of our Champagne choice looked over the snacks (nothing to his liking) served with drinks, and went back to sleep.

 

Happy Summer Solstice Friday to all, and we wish you a great weekend!

Ron & Alexandra

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.

Nina Hollander We both love the Amalfi Coast, and one of our favorite stays was at a convent inTaormina, Sicily, San Domenico Palace.  It was on a cliff above the sea, and there were incredible gardents that led down to the beach and the pool.  I love seeing tall carafes of blood orange juice on pink tableclothes in the breakfast room amid dark paneled wood walls polished to perfection and windows on to the sea...A

I'm sure that wonderful cat knew he was welcome at your table. Another one of Quincy's friends?

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD that Quincy has a world wide feline network.  That was a beautiful cat, I so appreciate the European laissez-faire when it comes to pets and creatures.  A

Endre Barath, Jr. life is too short to be slaving away for a nickel or two.  Opportunities abound in the world and in front of our proverbial noses.  And in France,  we attracted cats, whereas in Italy it was dog time.  We love them all, and the people who treasure them.  A

Sheila Anderson Ron's best friend from childhood daughter in law is from Mongolia, and I recall her tales of flying from CA to Mongolia for their wedding.  I am so looking forward to learning about the horses and what makes them special.  What a trip you embarked on!  A

I think it is wonderful that a cat is allowed to enjoy that spot next to you, Alexandra.  Some rule or regulation would likely ruin it here in the States.
