Why our world needs wood (BPT) – More than 30 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly established World Habitat Day, an important step in acknowledging that everyone deserves a safe place to live. However, housing availability in many cities is at a crisis level, where families have to choose between daily essentials and keeping roofs over their heads. Half of U.S. renters are living paycheck to paycheck because they’re spending more than 30 percent of their incomes on housing, according to the 2017 America’s Rental Housing Report — and that’s not just an issue felt in the U.S. but also […]

by Maxwell Alexander, CEO & Founder, Landida™ Smart Landscapes A luscious green lawn used to be a source of pride and a symbol of achieving the American Dream, well, at least for Babyboomers. They loved sugary drinks with artificial colors and flavors and dumped millions of tons of pesticides in their front yard to keep the grass greener on their side of the road, and neighbors jealous across the street. Good news for the Planet: the new generation of homeowners is in town! Millennials are way more eco-conscious, know that climate change is an actual thing, they prefer being healthy and cannot stand […]

Selling Real Estate in Style by Dino Alexander Want to sell your home quickly and for top dollar?  Staging with Style can help.  Staging is presenting your home in its best and most appealing light to the majority of home-buyers.

by Dino Alexander (CEO, Duncan Avenue Group) Building site for Villa 9W was carefully carved into the East side of a hill with glass atrium and direction of the roof almost precisely facing South and the direction of the Hudson River. Looking at Bagua (or Pa Kua) – Feng Shui energy map, we see that Villa 9W is oriented towards Fame and Reputation Life Area (or a better translation “The Light Within You”) and the Feng Shui Element Fire. Furthermore, 2-story-high iron fireplace takes a center stage in the atrium that amplifies connection to the energy of Fire. Interestingly, this […]
