Going, Going, Gone: Established Real Estate Agent Leaves Brokerage World During a Pandemic to Embrace the Advantages of Auctions

CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- In a pandemic-ravaged economy that's left few industries untouched - with many having had to completely rethink and reorient operations within a short window of time - one might question why someone would leave an established career to set off on a new venture. However, that's exactly what Seth A. White chose to do, noted real estate auction firm Tranzon Fox has announced today.

Five years into a career as an agent for two of the leading residential real estate brokerage firms in Hampton Roads, during which time he handled transactions that reached eye-watering highs of nearly $2 million for waterfront homes - something many agents still dream of achieving - he was seeking a chance to better differentiate himself and an opportunity that would allow him to lean into the wind-buffeted economy, rather than push against it.

Although he had previously explored the possibility of immersing himself in the real estate auction business, partly because it would enable him to continue representing residential clients while also stepping into the commercial realm, he ultimately decided it was not the right time.

"I continued to see the value in having the opportunity to serve my clients with an accelerated sale process using focused marketing that would ensure an asset yielded a price in line with its current market value. And sellers love the as-is purchase contracts that typify the auction business," said White, Tranzon Fox's newest auction associate.

So, in the turbulent present, in which some industries have been hammered relentlessly while a few have prospered, and Wall Street is up substantially one day and down the next, leaving values of many assets less clear, Mr. White decided this was the time to embrace auctions. "There's obviously a large advantage in being able to sell a property for the highest possible price in the shortest reasonable period of time through a transparent bidding process. Many private sellers choose it for its efficiency, but, of course, I will also be able to assist in foreclosures, bankruptcies, and other situations of distress and duress, when efficiency and time are not just optional, but mandated," he said. Furthermore, Mr. White knows that, "time is money, and executing for my clients will become ever more important as we navigate through these delicate periods of time."

Ultimately, what convinced White was Tranzon Fox's established ability to sell and close or obtain ratified contracts on a variety of properties during the pandemic era, from the low-end, to a $3 million-plus veterinary hospital / boarding / grooming facility. This includes asset types that have been hammered of late, namely retail and restaurants.

"They're still getting deals done, and I want to be a part of that," White said. "Now is the time."

About Tranzon:

In 2000, a group of real estate auctioneers banded together to create Tranzon, LLC, a nationwide network that revolutionized the way real estate professionals bring buyers and sellers together. Today, the Tranzon team features some of the most experienced real estate, marketing, and auction professionals in the business. Using Tranzon's Market-Making System(tm), a proven methodology for the accelerated sale of property, the company has conducted tens of thousands of successful commercial and residential auctions for clients including financial institutions, trusts, guardians, estates, and private individuals. All Tranzon companies are independently owned and operated.

Aaron Ozee Honors George Floyd and Black Lives Matter with ‘Regulus’ Prequel

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Aaron Ozee, celebrity author of the bestselling children's book, "Regulus" (ISBN: 9781387010790), and praised director of the Regulus movie, has started writing the rumored prequel. Ozee has launched the project ahead of schedule in hopes of supporting the Black Lives Matter community and preserve the memory of George Floyd.

Ozee was heartbroken upon watching the abhorrent footage captured at the scene where George Floyd was murdered, and witnessing the civilian protests sweep nations overnight, he was struck with the passion to act before more innocent lives are ravaged with racism.

"Upon hearing the shocking news about what happened to George Floyd, my heart stopped. How could Derek Chauvin, a police officer tasked with safeguarding the public, enact such violence on this man? Racism is the virus. Not the people it harms. We created this evil and we have the strength to cease the madness. My pledge to ensure the balance of this peaceful crusade will be to donate the proceeds of my untitled Regulus prequel to Black Lives Matter in their entirety. However, an extension of my pledge will be to dedicate my untitled Regulus prequel to George Floyd to grant him the future which the Minneapolis police department took from him," said Ozee this morning.

Ozee has been known for contributing the fruit born from the success of his written creations to societal movements, charitable organizations, and universal catastrophes. When Ozee premiered the Regulus movie on Amazon Prime, months before the promoted release, Ozee agreed to 50% of the proceeds earned from his debut film being donated to families struck with hardship due to COVID-19 for the remainder of 2020. Ozee has made travel arrangements for upcoming protests across Chicagoland to assist in the execution of demonstrations and provide other attendees with comfort in sight of aggressive law enforcement.

Ozee claims the untitled Regulus prequel will be on track for release later this year or early 2021 and negotiations with Bizarros Studio for making the untitled Regulus prequel into a television show are underway. Actors, musicians, influencers, athletes, political leaders, motivational speakers, and comedians with high regard in the industry such as Paula Deen, Akon, Drake Bell, and Tony Hawk have appreciated the infamous rat king.

Interfaith Chaplains Training for the Work of Racial Justice

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Responding to the recent murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Reverend Ineda Adesanya, CEO, announced that the Chaplaincy Institute ("ChI") is committing to training student chaplains and equipping current chaplains with new tools for spiritual care of those harmed by injustice.

Interfaith chaplains are spiritual caregivers to people of all faiths and backgrounds, and to those of no particular faith. The Chaplaincy Institute trains interfaith chaplains for service in healthcare, prisons, street ministry and stealth chaplaincy in various settings.

Rev. Adesanya said, "We must come together in sacred connection, united against hate, to demand justice now. We must, each and all, lend our voices to demand safety for our communities and our world.... The Chaplaincy Institute recognizes the call in this difficult moment and will answer it."

ChI's training in prophetic voice and social transformation equips students to understand oppression and facilitate social transformation from a foundation of spiritual principles across all faith traditions. In the Interfaith Chaplaincy Program students receive extensive preparation for spiritual leadership and compassionate care across diverse religious, spiritual and social contexts.

The Chaplaincy Institute has expanded to allow training from anywhere in the world. Students who are African American or who hold marginalized identities are eligible for scholarships. Whether online or in-person, ChI's programs are creating an expanding network of interfaith chaplains working toward our vision: A just world that honors the sacred connection of all.

First Touchless Pizza Serving Plate for Restaurants – A Solution to New Food Handling Safety Expectations

HUDSON, Ohio -- Nuova Vita Corporation is excited to announce the launch of the first No HandL Portion PadL with the Touchless Pizza Border. This next generation pizza serving plate is designed for today's sanitization standards and makes other serving plates obsolete.

The patented No HandL Portion PadL(tm) enables restaurant patrons to avoid shared surface areas when self-serving pizza slices. This decreases the risk for spread of viral pathogens associated with the novel coronavirus and bacteria that causes food borne illness.

Each custom-made No HandL Portion PadL with the Touchless Pizza Border is ideal for sharing pizza at the table. Three unique features give patrons peace of mind and convenience. Finger wells enable individuals to grasp and move the serving plate without shared surface contact, recessed grooves ensure fully cut slices to allow patrons to easily remove a slice of pizza from the plate and centering circles consistently ensure equally cut slices so every slice is as desirable as the next.

"The government provides restauranteurs with food preparation and serving guidelines and regulations, but it's ultimately consumer confidence that determines sales," said Greg Getzinger, founder and CEO of Nuova Vita Corporation.

He added, "The No HandL Portion PadL with the Touchless Pizza Border will help restauranteurs give people safe, familiar and convenient group pizza dining experiences, where they can feel a part of community again."

More information - and online ordering - now available at https://www.portionpadl.com/.

George Koser Joins Realty ONE Group Restore Leadership Team

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. -- Realty ONE Group Restore is proud to announce the recent hiring of George Koser to the leadership team. George will be working out of the Blue Bell and Conshohocken offices as the company's first Non-Selling Sales Manager. In his role, he will play an integral role in supporting the company's real estate agents to work smarter, not harder, and grow their businesses.

With more than 35+ years of experience in real estate and close to $3 billion in managed closed sales business, George has the experience and fervor to become a trusted team leader and help agents with viable marketing, training, and support that will make a true impact. Working with some of the most well-known real estate companies in the industry, George's previous roles and experience will help him be successful at Realty ONE Group Restore.

When asked why he chose to join Realty ONE Group Restore, George explained that the appeal was in the opportunity to work with a motivated, supportive company versus the type of culture that exists within the large corporate conglomerates.

"Ultimately, agents have the opportunity to make more money at ROG. The company focuses on offering autonomy, but also real-life, helpful guidance and support that others claim to offer, but don't actually offer. I've been there. I have firsthand experience and know what the agents need. I am here to give that support and guidance."

George said he was excited to help lead the charge and work with a company that has a focus on technology, something that agents need more and more, especially in the current state of the environment.

"ROG has the technology and the support agents need - and they encourage everyone to take advantage of it. Agents are given tools that will help them run their business at a high level, even in the midst of a pandemic. That's the kind of support you want from a company. You want to feel like someone has your back, not just eyes on your pocket."

Through George's 35+ years of experience, he has worked at major real estate companies including Century 21 Alliance, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach Realtors, and most recently, Weichert Realtors as a sales manager. From being a broker and owner to vice president and sales manager, George's experience is unmatched and his credibility is as solid as they come.

Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano and Alameda Launches the Elder Justice Lunch and Learn Series

PLEASANT HILL, Calif. -- Since the coronavirus pandemic began, it has changed the world, our community, and the elder care industry as we know it. Given the immense impact on seniors and older disabled adults, it is more important than ever to support our elder community care systems that protect the quality of life and advance the aging journey in this new era of care. Taking the lead in addressing these issues is Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano and Alameda with the launch of their 12-month Elder Justice Lunch and Learn Series.

"This is the fifth year that we are hosting our annual elder justice event, but it's not our traditional in-person forum," says Nicole Howell, executive director of Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano and Alameda. "We rapidly pivoted and transitioned to a yearlong monthly webinar series that brings our industry together with leaders at the forefront of addressing the evolution of elder abuse and COVID-19."

According to the Administration for Community Living (ACL), it is "estimated that 5 million older adults are abused, neglected, or exploited" every year. In addition, these aging adults lose more than $2.6 billion due to elder financial abuse, which is critical to their lifestyle and basic needs. The ACL also reports that only one in five elder abuse crimes are discovered.

"Our world is like a snow globe, right? We've gotten super shaken up, and now a critical issue is even more magnified," Howell continues. "Elder abuse doesn't discriminate. It happens to anyone and everyone. With seniors in isolation, we're doing everything in our power to ensure their overall safety, health, and wellness, but it's not enough. We need big systemic changes, and that's our goal with bringing everyone together for this event."

This program is set to launch on Thursday, June 18, 2020, with the first webinar taking place from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM. This series of monthly webinars will continue to take place on the third Thursday of every month until May 20, 2021.

The first event on June 18 features elder abuse investigation and prosecution expert Paul Greenwood with a keynote on the "Collaboration and the Future of Elder Justice." As a newly retired district attorney who headed up the Elder Abuse Prosecution Unit at the San Diego DA's Office for over twenty years, Paul is known worldwide for his consultancy on elder abuse cases as well as law enforcement and agency training.

Other topics in this series include:
* Preventing Eviction in the Age of COVID-19
* National Trends in Adult Protective Services Amid COVID-19
* Professional Strategies - Taking Care of Ourselves So We Can Take Care of Others
* Actionable Engagement Tactics to Prevent Isolation + Advances in Technology
* Rights Afforded to Victims and Their Families
* The Art and Science of Working with "Non-Verbal" Clients
* Expanding Reach and Impact with Community-Based Organizations, First Responders, Local Government, and More
* Scam Prevention and Recovery

Registration for this first session is available through Eventbrite - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lunch-and-learn-collaboration-and-the-future-of-elder-justice-tickets-106010594542

Poetry Reawakens Soul, Something Desperately Needed in Our Uncertain Times

LAKESIDE, Mont. -- Eight One 818 Publishing announces a new book release, "Reimagining In 2020: Poems: First Reflections" (ISBN: 978-1733941235) by Laura Keller-Wolff. Response to a world pandemic comes in many forms. Sheltering in place, one poet finds deeper vision facing the urgencies of radical change.

"Reimagining In 2020" is author Laura Keller-Wolff's second book in a series on the theme of reimagining, here she challenges readers to reach for the poetics of heart and soul in times of extreme instability. These times push us to the edge of every sense perception, where steps toward a new world are inches away. Yet, we need to create a bridge from volatility to the new sources of depth, symbolism and non-literal footholds to carry our world beyond. That bridge is poetry: A sister to art, a brother to peaceful co-existence. We find a deeper, broader lens through poetry, the opportunity to reimagine with 2020 vision.

"The place for the poetic arts is now-more than ever before," Keller-Wolff says. "Poetry provides a timeless connection to our humanness, as reflected in lines from The Doorman - a poem honoring one of New York City's first COVID-19 victims: "Some people ripen this way, / so full of the earth and the life / that make all of us real, / with work that does like the seed, / carrying the sweetness of character - / hands waiting even before you arrive."

Poetry meets landscape where Keller-Wolff makes her home, in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. She is the founder and director of Spiralation, Inc., managing The Mural-Poetry Project-which united youth and elders, generating 14 murals featuring local history, art and poetry, and the Dream-Well Project-generating poetry and art from dream analysis.
