Social Innovation Disrupting the Real Estate Industry with Georges Benoliel

Georges Benoliel has been working in Wall Street for the last 14 years trading derivatives with hedge funds. He has been an active real estate investor for over a decade. Georges graduated from HEC Business School in Paris and holds a master in Finance from ESADE Barcelona. www.nestapple.com

NestApple was born on the principle that technology greatly diminished the role of full-service real estate brokerage firms by making it easy to search for homes.

Its founders have been outraged by the high fees that traditional firms still charge.  NestApple is an efficient platform which helps clients from placing the bid to dealing with the paperwork. We represent buyers (and tenants) and charge 1% instead of the regular 3% while providing the same level of service. During our own search for real estate, we stumbled upon the concept of "commission rebates", which is legal in 40 of the 50 States, and in fact has been publicly encouraged by New York's A.G.

We also believe in corporate responsibility of entrepreneurs and that businesses should play a role in social innovation and engage the local community, therefore we make a donation to a local charity every time a deal closes.

Melanie Bajrovic, The Wealthy Barmaid: From Minimum Wage to Millionaire

Melanie Bajrovic continues to build upon the investment knowledge that her family began to nurture from the age of twelve. Her journey to financial independence continued through college, post-graduate job searching, and the start-up phases of her own businesses — all the while, supporting her endeavors by working as a barmaid. 

As she established herself as a successful entrepreneur, Melanie affirmed many lessons learned from her grandparents, an eternal source of inspiration on her road to becoming The Wealthy Barmaid. 

In this new millennia, there are no excuses for our modern ignorance, and when it comes to The Wealthy Barmaid, there are none.

The only true obstacle, between your present circumstance and your future financial independence, is you.  www.melaniebajrovic.com
