What Crowdtilt Will Do For Local RI Business   A local clothing store that has been a mainstay of Wickford RI main street for decades (7 to be exact!) turned to Crowdtilt (an on line crowd funding source) to raise money to salvage them from bankruptcy.  In less than a month over $150,000 was raised to pay vendors, bring in new fall stock and streamline the store to meet the demands of now.  It was just amazing to me that this all took place in a little RI village in southern Rhode Island real estate...that this amount of money was raised in a short period of time because of how past customers felt about salvaging small business America.   Will it make a difference for the long term?  Well as they say time will tell but it is an example again how Social Media is so important to all busin...

4th of July Fireworks in North Kingstown RI 2014   What can I say did the town get it wrong with having the 4th of July fireworks on July 5th?  Did they miss a digit for this all American holiday in North Kingstown?  Well all in good time will they realize that town dwellers like to celebrate the birthday of the United States on the day it is the birthday!  On July 4th!     But it was a good call awhile ago as Hurricane Arthur plans on messing up most of the 4th's plans here.  So fireworks on Saturday, July 5th will work here.     But know that the fireworks display in North Kingstown is at the Town Beach on Beach Street around 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 5th.  Come early because the Lafayette Band begins their glorious playing at 7 p.m. on the beach.  And you don't want to miss music to y...

Working on a Drone Aerial Photo Shoot in RI Real Estate Busy day as I explore with my personal videographer a photo shoot from the air of my fabulous waterfront property to bring in more home buyers from out of state.  This is an exciting move for me in the RI real estate world of marketing luxury homes for sale.  See the RI coastal real estate aerial video here. My video tours are done well now by the company who does them for me but it was time to kick it up that notch (thank you Emeril Lagasse!) and to bring in more business.  Continuous marketing is what I do for my clients' properties. This one on the North Kingstown waterfront for sure needs no more promotion since I have a number of buyers who are bringing their architects and home builders in to decide how to do what they want t...

Rhode Island Beaches A Recent Trip to North Kingstown Rhode Island Visiting the Rhode Island Shore Ginny Gorman, a North Kingstown Real Estate Agent recently invited me to visit her home in Rhode Island. I met Ginny on ActiveRain and like with many "Rainers" we became friends. I took off a couple of days of selling homes in New York to join Ginny by the Rhode Island shore she calls home. Can you believe this beautiful blue water? The sun was shining that day and the water is always crystal clear and quite cold!  We compared notes on life, wine, real estate, blogging, our new websites and of course we talked about ActiveRain. I was given a tour of the many different Rhode Island beaches. Ginny's blog shares her passion for real estate and the beautiful Rhode Island waterfront.  A short v...

Sears Hometown Makes Entry Into North Kingstown RI   New business entries into the North Kingstown community are welcome and big box stores have to fit into the location.  We have Kohl's, TJ Maxx, Walmart, Home Depot to name a few businesses set off by themselves and they do supply jobs and can be a good employer.  This week Sears Hometown opened up in the shopping plaza next to TJ Maxx on Post Road and the reason I knew it was there was because of the Patch.   If you are like me now, most of my current local and national news comes from online. So  this store is a smaller version of the big box Sears and has tools to vacuum cleaners.  That was the key word 'vacuum cleaner'.  It fit in nicely in the town and became another contributor to the tax base!   See I have a vacuum cleaner as ol...
