Real Estate Agent Helps Businessman with Wine Business

Real Estate Agent Helps Businessman with Wine Business

A friend of mine, a real estate agent, was fortunate enough to encounter a businessman who wanted to put up a wine cellar and shop in order to make his business run better.

Aside from the experience of helping someone achieve the business location of their dreams, what made the experience more special was the fact that he was able to learn about the art and business of wine and wine making.

He shared to me the knowledge that he learned. One of this was the basic principle that one of wines biggest enemy is water. If water is mixed with wine, the taste of the wine will be affected, making it lose its beauty and exquisiteness in taste.

Of course, he also shared that this is not an absolute case, because there are wines that are placed in ice before it is served while there are wines that needed to be kept in room temperature and free from all types of moist and dew. However, when the wine is not yet set to be opened, the wine should still be kept in a room that is not to humid nor too cold, to prevent the bottles from sweating or from accumulating dew. Even if it is the type of wine that needs to be placed on ice before serving, proper temperature for it should still be achieved, because once you put it on top of ice, you should serve it all up soon after. You can never go back to storing it again after exposing it to too much moisture, because the taste of wine will never be the same again. People who do not fascinate themselves in the craft of wine making and wine tasting may not be able to taste the difference. But for those who are passionate about wines, a single change in water content of the wine can already trigger a change of taste and they will be able to distinguish it.

To keep your wines free from water contamination, you must store it in a place with good roofing condition, so that rain would not drip through and contaminate the wines.

The room should also have the right temperature. You can also store it in wine cellars that will be far from any type of water formation.

Lastly, you should ensure that you have a good water line or pipe system that is safe from any possible water damage. Water damage that would soon turn into mold infection and would require mold inspection and mold testing.

Such care and consideration is needed if one wants to succeed in wine making, and especially for those who wish to turn it into a business. And as much as my friend is thankful for landing a client who was passionate about this business, I am also thankful that I am friends with a realtor who has so much inspiring stories to share.

Putting an End to Frauds through Media

Putting an End to Frauds through Media

Below is a story of a member of this organization and how she used the media to be a powerful tool against frauds:

I just ended a crazy month of legal fiasco with the help of media men and the power of media. I was able to achieve justice because the media was able to share to the locality the story and other victims surfaced and helped with the case. It was an unforgettable experience. Now, I’m in the process of cleaning up the mess that was done and it’s a good thing that I have a certified plumbing company to clean up after the company I publicly sued for malpractice.

What happened was that the company I hired to construct the new building for my business gave me a quotation that was way over my budget. However, they were able to smooth-talked me into agreeing, saying that they are the best in the business and they use quality products for their work.

Hence the construction proceeded as planned. When the work was done, I gave them their payment and I thought I would never have to deal with them again. Unfortunately, only 2 months from being constructed, the building was already suffering from a lot of problems. Areas easily crumble down and the walls seemed hollow. Until one day an area collapsed. Also, the bathroom, which was the biggest damaged area, had damaged pipes and was leaking all day, adding to the businesses bill expenses. Because of all the tragedy, molds were infesting from the inside of the walls because they were left hollow and susceptible to moist. And as we all know, moist areas is where molds grow very quickly.

Hence, the building slowly degraded and became too weak to hold up on the weight. Just like that, a very big amount of money was wasted. I had the place investigated by a more reputable team of commercial plumbing contractors. Since they are experts when it comes to problems caused about by molds, they were trusted in their assessment. And, according to their investigation, the molds were able to penetrate the building easily not just because the walls were hollow, but because the materials used were substandard materials. This news really made me mad because it was in our contract that the company I hired would use only the best in quality materials.

Feeling cheated, While I went to find a plumber, I also went and sued the company. I made the incident public so that people or establishments that plan to do future transactions with the company will be warned. Using the media to my advantage became a very good technique because other victims that just kept their mouth shuts because their cases were only minor cases of substandard quality of materials for repairs in their homes. However, when they saw me in the news, they decided to help put the company’s fraudulence to a halt because they are obviously scamming their clients into paying more than the value of their work.

I know I would not have made it through my search for justice if I had not had the media by my side. They are the reason that the evidence overflowed and witnesses came up to stand for my cause. Truly, the power of media is very strong and it is a very good channel to use for the pursuit of justice.
