Tom Schick & Linda Ginex | Keeping In Touch

We wanted to keep in touch with you over the years and present to you, the amazing real estate company that we work with, The Boutique Real Estate Group.

After ten years in real estate, we noticed a fatal flaw. The industry is consistently 5-10 years behind in everything they do. Instead of coming up with new ideas, most real estate agents react to old ones or just “keep up”.

We love real estate. That’s why we’re fixing it. No other real estate brokerage in California offers everything we are capable of offering to you. We believe sellers should expect more out of their agent. After all, your agent is marketing one of your family’s most valuable investments. Why not do everything to defend the highest possible sales price?

A bit about us:

A few recent examples of our work include:

4582 Oceanridge, 502 Nineteenth, and 6826 Hidden Oaks.

Please connect with us at www.TheBoutiqueRE.com

Curious about the value of your home? Visit www.GetMyHomeWorth.com to find out today.

Now, we would love to hear from you so give us a call or email and let’s chat.

Written by: Pamela and Ric Dizon

See Pamela and Ric from The Boutique Real Estate Group for great luxury gifts to give to the Long Beach residents on your list.

unnamed

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and that means that holiday gift giving is about to begin. For Long Beach residents who need some especially nice gifts, we’ve assembled our favorite luxury gifts this season.

1. A fine watch. A classic watch from Rolex, Bulova, Omega or other fine watchmakers makes a great gift, as it can be used for years. Fine watches are also often heirlooms that are cherished for generations. Try one of Long Beach’s local jewelers, such as McCarty’s, for great selection and knowledgable staff.

2. Local craft beer or wine. Long Beach residents are fortunate to have several great wine and beer shops close by. Friendly staff who love sharing tips on the best wines and beers will be happy to help you find the perfect bottle.Try Public Beer and Wine Shop for advice.

3. Speaking of beverages for adults, why not find a bottle of aged Scotch? Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is one of Scotland’s oldest brands, carefully hand-crafted since the 1840s.

4. Of course, Long Beach is best known for its gorgeous beaches. Try Diane’s Beachwear for luxurious beach towels, great hats and sunglasses, and other fine accessories.

5. Create a luxury picnic set with a sturdy picnic basket, fun dishes, a pretty table cloth, and bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. Round out the gift with tasty crackers and some nice cheeses or a gift certificate to Olives Gourmet Grocer in Belmont Heights.

6. Some people really don’t want extra things in their home but would love a membership for a museum or other institution. The Long Beach Museum of Art has an extensive permanent collection and many fascinating special exhibitions throughout the year. Click here for information on memberships.

7. The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach is one of Long Beach’s beautiful outdoor spaces. A membership to the garden is a wonderful gift. The recipient can take an hour or two and relax in the tranquility created by the Zen principles followed in the landscape design. Visit the Japanese Garden’s website here.

8. For theatre lovers on your list, purchase a subscription for the 2015 season of the International City Theatre. Subscribers can attend 5 shows and receive discounts at fine local restaurants. Visit ictlongbeach.org for more information.

9. The Queen Mary is one of Long Beach’s most famous landmarks. The gift of a night in one of the original state rooms makes a great gift. There are several overnight packages, which include special tours of the ship. Visit queenmary.com to choose the right vacation.

10. The Long Beach Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 80th anniversary with a Classical Series performing classic literature with world-class musicians and soloists. A gift of tickets to a classical or a pops concert makes a wonderful gift. Visit lbso.org to see the season schedule.

The Boutique Real Estate Group, Inc. to Acquire Fitzpatrick + Prince, Inc.

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

The Boutique Real Estate Group, Inc. and Fitzpatrick + Prince, Inc. Combine Local Expertise to Deliver the Best of Real Estate Marketing to Southern California Home Sellers and Buyers

Corona del Mar, California – October 22, 2014 – The Boutique Real Estate Group, Inc. (www.TheBoutiqueRE.com) announced today it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Fitzpatrick + Prince, Inc. (www.FitzPrince.com), the Orange County real estate agency known for its unorthodox real estate marketing strategies. Fitzpatrick + Prince provides real estate brokering and marketing services for Southern California luxury homes. The agreement combines the strengths of The Boutique Real Estate Group and Fitzpatrick + Prince by leveraging The Boutique’s powerful in-house technology, national & international recognition, strong sales history, design sensibility, and marketing strategy and Fitzpatrick + Prince’s creativity in interactive media and lead generation.

The Boutique Real Estate Group

“Fitzpatrick + Prince has been known as a powerful creative force in the Orange County real estate market for the past five years.” said Raj Qsar, The Boutique Real Estate Group’s Founder / CEO. “The Boutique Real Estate Group and Fitzpatrick + Prince share the same vision for raising the bar of luxury real estate marketing in both Orange County, Los Angeles County, and beyond, and the combination of the companies’ local relationships and promotional experience will help deliver an unrivaled level of marketing excellence to Southern California sellers. We look forward to bringing together the two companies to make The Boutique Real Estate Group an unrivaled voice in tech-driven, innovative real estate marketing.”

“By linking the promotional success and lead generation systems at Fitzpatrick + Prince with the tech-forward digital strategy at The Boutique, the outcome is an even stronger, faster-growing force in the real estate market. No other real estate brokerage is putting this much attention on defending premium prices through technology and creative marketing techniques. The future looks bright for The Boutique, and this is just the first step,” said Mark Fitzpatrick, CEO of Fitzpatrick + Prince.

With the recent September 2014 announcement of their expansion to the Los Angeles luxury real estate market with Aaron Woodman as Operations Manager and under the tech and mobile leadership of Jeremy Lehman as CTO, The Boutique Real Estate Group is aggressively positioning themselves as the real estate brokerage of the future. By integrating Fitzpatrick + Prince’s lead generation strategies – which return an average response rate 18 times the national average – The Boutique can now provide a greater number of seller and buyer leads for its agents. “Being wildly experimental with our lead generation is what makes Fitzpatrick + Prince such a unique brokerage. Like The Boutique, our smaller corporation has the ability to fail, try again, improve, then knock it out of the park. I would have never imagined the one marketing idea we first laughed off the table would actually turn into millions in earnings with an exorbitantly high response rate. It was all worth the risk. I’m glad to see a company like The Boutique carry that torch,” says Opie Opfer, Fitzpatrick + Prince’s Director of Marketing.

Fitzpatrick + Prince’s clientele will continue service with their existing agents at The Boutique with the added benefit of the firm’s experienced leadership, extensive national & international network, preferred referring partners, and industry-leading technology. The creative team and executive leadership of Fitzpatrick + Prince will transition to RUHM, Inc. (www.RUHM.com), the destination marketing company, which combines real estate brokerage experience with a global marketing firm to promote luxury homes, hotels, and yachts around the world.

Under the terms of the agreement, The Boutique Real Estate Group, Inc. will pay an undisclosed amount for all outstanding Fitzpatrick + Prince, Inc. shares related to its real estate brokering operations. The acquisition, which is subject to certain conditions, is expected to be completed in November 2014.

About The Boutique Real Estate Group, Inc.

The Boutique Real Estate Group is a boutique real estate brokerage founded in Orange County, CA, that focuses on brilliant design, beautiful marketing & luxury services.  The Boutique has created a culture that spurs collaboration, technology and social media with a unique marketing approach.

What’s RUHM?

Enter RUHM, Inc., the “Destination Marketing Company,” and home base for Fitzpatrick + Prince’s previous creative team. Specializing in packaging, producing, and promoting luxury homes, yachts, and other remarkable destinations, the executives, artists, and marketers who made Fitzpatrick + Prince a success are now taking their skills to every part of the globe with an even higher standard of quality and service. Employing additional copywriters, cinematographers, and marketers from various industries, RUHM has created a powerful creative force in the luxury real estate marketing world. Starting with Maui’s most expensive beachfront estate, our team has proven its ability as an innovative marketer of the world’s finest properties.
