Throwback Thursday: A Chocoholic's Dream Selection!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

When we were visiting the Food Halls of Galeries Lafayette in mid-May of this year, we were delighted to see the magnificent chocolate selection.  La Maison du Chocolat had a chocolate maker demonstrating the making of chocolate truffles and giving out samples.

There were so many chocolate brands to explore, we did not know where to begin or what to try.  We chose a variety of chocolate bars that wer 85% of higher, and then we loaded our basket. 

 

We tried a new bar daily, some we liked and some we did not.  There were so many more try, and that is another reason to go back to Paris!

 

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.”
Charles M. Schulz

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.

Now that is just not right. It is about 11:20 and I was starting to think about what to do for lunch. Now I need chocolate.

Sheila Anderson You are right, I do not need a reason to go back to Paris...it is part of my DNA, and would love to take a gander at areas we did not focus on this time.  A

It's been awhile since I have had really good chocolate.  However, there really isn't such a thing as really bad chocolate!
