Don't make this mistake when hiring a commercial REALTOR®.

When hiring a REALTOR®, be sure he or she is skilled in the type of property transaction you intend to make. The truth is, different real estate dealings come with different regulations, and if your agent isn't an expert in the type of transaction you're conducting, it could come back to bite you not only during the transaction buy down the road as well. 

Here's a real-world scenario as related to us by Pearl Insurance, our risk management specialists, in which an agent well-versed in residential sales decided to venture into commercial sales and ended up being sued.

THE SITUATION


A real estate agent with a successful background in residential sales received a request from a light manufacturer to help locate a new business space to rent. The agent had been selling residential homes for over 30 years, and he welcomed the opportunity to finally put his commercial real estate knowledge to use.

THE PROBLEM


The agent was considered an expert in residential tr ...

Hey! Where's everybody going? And what's up with Vermont?

We recently received the above graphic showing what states had the largest influx or outflow of residents, according to data released by United Van Lines, a nationwide moving and storage company. 

Who's Leaving?
Looks like most of New England is departing for points elsewhere, except Vermont, which has a brilliant program that pays for skilled workers to move there for jobs. 

Where are they going?
Seems like besides the Carolinas, moving people are taking Horace Greeley's advice and are going west, young man. 
The two major reasons for people picking up stakes and heading elsewhere? To find a new job or relocate to one.

CLEARING THE AIR ABOUT ANCHOR BABIES, CHAIN MIGRATION AND THE 14TH AMENDMENT.

A large percentage of our clients come to Global Property Systems from abroad to find a home in the United States. Many come seeking Green Card status through the EB-5 Visa Program, which offers resident visas to foreigners who are starting, investing in or purchasing U.S. businesses. As a result, we encounter immigration problems pretty frequently. Our go-to attorney for immigration issues is Steve Maggi, lead attorney and CEO of SMA Law. He wrote recently about the Trump administration's attempts to limit immigration from a legal standpoint, which we found explained what the current administration is attempting to do and why they can't, legally, do it.

When The Children Cry - The Affect of Our Immigration Policies on the Forgotten.

As global REALTORS®, we frequently need the services of an immigration attorney to help our clients gain legal entry into the United States. Steve Maggi, president of SMA Law, is our go-to guy for such services. Aside from being a great attorney, Steve is a very caring, compassionate individual, and we have seen many times how his work has saved the day for our foreign clients.

Today, I read a blog Steve wrote that really explained U.S. immigration policies and how they have affected thousands of immigrants, not the least of whom are children. I wanted to share his blog with you. If it moves you the way it did me, feel free to pass it on.
