Boca Raton Florida Mortgage | King’s Gourmet Market Moving

Boca Raton Florida has loved King’s Gourmet Market for its great seafood, fresh produce and delicious bakery items.  The only downside to the market has been its location on Military Road with little or no parking for its throngs of loyal customers. 

 

 

 

The Palm Beach Post has reported that King’s Gourmet Market will soon be moving to the Boca Grove shopping center on Powerline Road, South of Glades in the space formerly occupied by Ross Dress for Less. 

 This location will serve King’s Gourmet Market’s customers well for several reasons:

  • Parking will be easier with lots more spaces.
  • Being further West in Boca Raton Florida will make the drive easier from many communities
  • Getting into the center will be easier with more than one entrance off of Powerline Rd.
  • There will be more than just King’s Gourmet Market there – it is more of a destination center with Sushi, Salons and other retail.
  • The store will be much more spacious which will allow King’s Gourmet Market to have more display shelves and increase their selection.

Another reason that this is a good move for all parties is the distance it will put between King’s Gourmet Market and Whole Foods

While King’s Gourmet Market is not a direct competitor in the Health Food Industry, the two stores do have a lot of overlap in the fresh produce, meats and seafood areas.  People won’t have to choose Whole Foods anymore because they don’t know how to find it from Glades Rd or I-95.

All in all, this is a great move of a Boca Raton Florida landmark establishment.

Good Luck King’s Gourmet Market!

Boca Raton Florida Mortgage | Bloggerazzi & Sellsius SoBe – the new regime in Journalism

MSN Money, Marketwatch, Motley Fool, The Wall Street Journal, The National Enquirer… what do all these names have in common?

They’re good for my SEO rankings?? yes, but that’s not where I’m going… or is it?

During my interviews on the Blog Tour RV with the Sellsius Guys, the topic of conversation took a right turn when best selling author Gerald L Posner and his author/columnist wife Trisha Posner joined in on the fun.

In the middle of a very fruitful conversation for me – when I got a chance to listen to Rudy and Joe while running the cameras on Peter Santiago – our interview changed.

We had been discussing the merits of Blogging and other forms of creating an online presence and how our readers are affecting us. This about-face took us to how we are affecting the world of journalism.

We surmised that perhaps Bloggers are the revolutionaries in the world of Journalism.

Journalists have had such a long run reporting on what they SEE in the world around us. They have schools for people just to learn this craft. These enterprising souls are leaving top universities with laptop and camera in tow to find a job where they can tell the public about the news.

The problem with this model is that most of these people do not have any experience in the industries on which they report!

Bloggers are reporting on what we LIVE!

The hardest part of getting a first job is the lack of experience in that industry. To get hired as a Chef, it is required that you:

  • know how to cook
  • know your way around a professional kitchen
  • generally have the experience to complement the team that is already in place

…without some previous experience, you’re going to have to start at an Applebee’s if you ever want to work your way up to working directly for Tyler Florence, their new celebrity chef spokesperson! and then you’re still going to need some hard core training and/or formal training before Tyler will like your scrambled eggs (his favorite test for new hires).

Why is it that these trades are different than OUR trades?

Here’s a little bit of MY experience that supports my writings:

  • I grew up in my father’s office… he owns a Land Surveying business. He has been a homebuilder. His friends and colleagues are developers, agents, mortgage brokers, contractors, etc…
  • I learned to spot houses and walk off measurements with his licensed surveyor’s training at age 7.
  • I worked in his office answering phones and putting together research at age 12.
  • I ran deeds with him at the courthouse at age 13.
  • At age 15 I spent a summer as a super in one of his homebuilding ventures.
  • At age 16, I had a car so I could run out on my own and do things.
  • After my MBA, I got my Real Estate License. I sold and leased commercial real estate and then ventured into residential.
  • I moved to South Florida where I used my knack for numbers and MBA to move into the Mortgage Industry and haven’t looked back.

Most Journalists can NEVER say this about their lives regarding what they write.

Sure … Carrie Bradshaw’s column on Sex and the City was about her life dating… but that’s lifestyle. What about the Journalists writing about Real Estate or Mortgages?

Is the Blogosphere the new Uber-Media?

When Rudy_Sellsius is running around South Beach with a DVCam is he the epitome of the new Bloggerazzi???

Will the counter-culture of Bloggers eventually overtake the mainstream journalists and periodicals when it comes to reporting from the trenches of an industry?

All indications from the panel of experts on the BlogTour RV was that Authors in general are fine. Book Authors will always be there… but Journalists – Newpaper and Magazine journalists – are vulnerable to this technological coup d’etat.

Where does the best Celebrity Gossip come from? TMZ? Entertainment Tonight?…

No! the world turns to Perez Hilton now!

Even Headline News now has I-Report which has already turned into its own show News to Me!

The tip of the iceberg has been spotted.

The question now becomes if the Titanics of the news media are on the lookout or not.

After a preliminary search of local newspapers, there are one or two journalists blogging – but there are no links to outside bloggers. No bloggers have been brought out of the market to help provide live content. No freelancing by Agents and Brokers regarding the Insider perspective!

Sure – we get one or two liners in an article. We meet a journalist at a little league game and give a soundbite…

a soundbite…

Bloggers are headed for more than a soundbite…

I now have three blogs – ActiveRain, TheMortgageGoToGuy, and the newest is BocaRatonHomeLoan… and a couple more on the way!

I wonder if the local press will pick up on ME and want an insider on their team??

Boca Raton Florida | Dining Magazine Debut

Boca Raton Florida has many great restaurants but just now got a boost from a new Magazine by the publishers of Boca Raton MagazineFlorida Table Magazine is dubbed as the magazine featuring  “South Florida‘s Best Dining and Nightlife”. 

The debut issue of this quarterly just came out and it shows a lot of promise for people visiting the area or residents who just want to read about great new places to go.

 One of my favorite stories in this issue is a quick bit on how to eat Stone Crab claws.  They are delicious and unfortunately very seasonal.  Currently in season, these delicacies are a must have for anyone who has never enjoyed them.
