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.

“Billions Lost: The American Tech Crisis and The Road Map to Change”, Hilarie T. Gamm

Hilarie T. Gamm pulls the curtain back on the wizards of America’s technology industry to simplify the current American technology landscape for every reader.

“Billion’s Lost: The American Tech Crisis and the Road Map to Change” is an explosive, must-read about the inner workings of the U.S. tech industry. The impact of H-1B Visas, offshore labor, education, and globalism are exposed as Gamm educates the masses on the history of U.S. technology and the crisis that was Y2K.  By simplifying political science, economics, and civics concepts, Gamm connects the dots on the causes and effects of our tech industry downturn, painting an eye-opening portrait of what the future holds if corrective action isn’t taken.

More than a political or social science commentary, “Billion’s Lost” finds its place among the best historical and political non-fiction works for its clear explanation of how offshoring millions of U.S. technology and engineering jobs opened a gateway placing our economy, national security, and educational system at risk.
Although the ramifications are dire, all is not lost. The book concludes with a powerful chapter, “The Road Map to Change,” a list of 20 national, actionable ideas that can turn things around and return growth, prosperity and technological prowess back to the United States of America.
