Same great content, but new and easier to use. Thanks!

One fact I always tell my clients about Vegas is how much construction and development is happening in our fast growing city. There is currently $30 Billion (that’s with a B) of construction happening on Las Vegas Blvd. It is absolutely astounding to me how has been built even since 2002 when I moved here. Well, one of my clients recently told me about a great website called Vegas Today And Tomorrow. I checked it out this morning and I was really impressed with all of the information on this site. There was one video on the site that is a perfect illustration of how much construction is happening in Las Vegas. Mark Adams is the Owner/Operator for the website. Many Kudos for Mark for providing such a great, informative site. Check out one of his videos:

A couple of construction projects worth noting:

  • Fontainebleau Resort and Casino. This is a beautiful project on N. Las Vegas Blvd. There is a great video on the project. Fontainebleau Resort Las Vegas
  • Echelon Resort. I’m really excited to see how this project shapes our skyline. I’ve been focusing so much on City Center that I haven’t given as much attention here. There are some big Hotel names coming to this project, like Delano, and Mondrian, just to name a couple. Echelon Resort Las Vegas
  • Encore Las Vegas is the second tower of Wynn. The $1.9 Billion tower will add 2,045 all suite rooms to the Wynn. Encore Las Vegas
  • City Center Las Vegas. This $9 Billion project has captured the imagination of some of the world’s top Architects. Bringing art, entertainment, residences, and resorts to our fabulous city. City Center Las Vegas

Penthouse Unit in Panorama TowersI have recently been in contact with a seller of a penthouse unit in Panorama Towers in Las Vegas. This unit has been completely remodeled by designer Mark Tracy, who was recently awarded the “Best Designer” by Las Vegas Home and Design. If you’d like to see his online portfolio visit his website at Chemical Spaces. It has absolutely breathtaking Las Vegas Strip Views from the 33rd floor.

  • Beautiful floors
  • Granite counter tops
  • Recessed lighting
  • Balcony with 180 degree strip views

I recently visited the unit and recorded my experience. Here’s the penthouse video:

East Tower in Turnberry

I recently had the pleasure of previewing a few units in Turnberry Towers. I had many preconceived notions of the property because I’ve seen many units at Turnberry Place and Signature MGM Grand which Turnberry developed with MGM. I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed by the design of these two towers. They are sleek, modern, and very urban with all the amenities you would expect from Turnberry. Turnberry Towers has two buildings, a east and a west tower with 316 units in each. There are four different floor plans ranging from 814sq ft to 1658 sq ft. There are one bedroom, two bedrooms, two bedrooms plus a den, and a three bedroom floor plans. Some amenities include:

  • Electronic Concierge systems in every unit
  • Spectacular view of the Las Vegas Strip
  • Contemporary design
  • Italian marble baths with Jacuzzi whirlpool Tubs
  • Granite-topped counters with European Kitchen Cabinetry
  • Fully fitness facility
  • 24 hour building and community security personnel and systems
  • 24 hour valet
  • 24 hour doorman

I put together a short video tour of Turnberry Towers. The pictures are from a two bedroom plus a den, two bathroom model unit. It’s 1657 sq ft with gorgeous views of the valley and downtown.

There are currently 85 properties on the market in the two towers. Click here to view the current resales available in Turnberry Towers. If you’d like more information on any of these units, please contact Felipe Crook Toll Free at 1-866-589-1646 or email me directly at felipe@felipecrook.com

I have recently been in contact with a gentleman who has a current contract for sale on a Palms Place unit in Las Vegas. He’s interested in assigning his unit to another buyer. Currently there are 6 one-bedroom units on the market. The cheapest one bedroom unit available today is west facing for $850,000. We are looking at all offers and we can beat ANYTHING on the market at the moment.
Yesterday I was able to walk the unit to take pictures and see what kind of view it has. This unit is on the 10th floor, corner unit, west facing, with a great side balcony that give you strip views of everything south of City Center. I was a little surprised to see how good the views were. I took a video of my tour of the units. Check it out:

I also took some still photos of the property.

This has some great investment potential. For more information, please contact Felipe Crook toll free at 866-589-1646 or email me at felipe@felipecrook.com

THIS BLOG HAS MOVED TO:

HTTP://www.LasVegasLuxuryPropertiesLink.com

I am writing this blog post as a huge response to the scandal Vlad Zablotsky is going through with Eperks. I was quite surprised to hear how Eperks has handled the situation. Here’s the story as I’ve read it from RSS Pieces:

1. ePerks solicited editorial advertising (blog posts recommending their service) on real estate blogs

2. Vlad wrote such a post and was complimentary

3. Commenters on the post came in and talked about how bad the ePerks service was and how they felt they were swindled

4. Vlad writes a response piece to acknowledge reader comments: Is ePerks a gem or a Scam?

5. Comment frenzy ensues on this post. At some point the comments turn into a battle between a number of anonymous commenters plus one person who claims to be an employee of Eperks. The suspicious part is that all these commenters seem to come from the same block of IP addresses (76.206.0.161 – do a trace route on this ip) that when traced lead you back to the San Jose area (where ePerks lives). This IP block has been verified as coming from ePerks in many posts where people published images of emails with header details from ePerks and this is this same IP was used in stealth marketing tactics where employees of ePerks would comment on various forums positively about the company with multiple identities.

Ok, so this is what I would say about this ridiculous business behavior.  We ALL know that in business the ones that survive provide a great service that people need.  Businesses that cannot adapt to the market will be left behind, and when people who don’t have a good experience complain, that is a good indication you should change what your business is doing.  Blogs are a way to discuss businesses, services, and experiences-ALL kinds of experiences.   A company can’t solicit a blogger’s advertising and punish him for comments he received from consumers.  That is free speech.   It’s important that business owners listen to consumers and provide what they need.  I am constantly listening to what my clients need and that has enabled me to survive in this tough market we’re in right now.  Blogging is a VERY powerful tool for marketing, and it’s a bad idea to threaten bloggers because of our strength in numbers.

Trump Condo Hotel in Las VegasI’ve been in contact with a current buyer for a couple of units in Trump’s Condo/Hotel here in fabulous Las Vegas. We’ve been talking about his units, which are on the 29th floor with fantastic south strip facing views. He has a 1 bedroom, and a studio next to each other. He’d like to assign the contract to a new buyer at his original 2005 price!! This is a great opportunity for someone looking to purchase in Trump Condo/Hotel. These units are some of the most desirable positions in the building with beautiful views of the strip.

I’ve been showing a lot of high rises lately, and Trump is in a unique location on Las Vegas Blvd. It’s right in the middle of everything: The Wynn, Fashion Show Mall, The Palazzo, Venetian, and the new $6 Billion dollar project called ECHELON and a Turnberry Developed fontaine-bleu-las-vegas. The development on Las Vegas Blvd is moving to the north instead of moving South because of FAA height restrictions on buildings close to Macarran International Airport. Those restrictions have forced developers to seek out strip frontage property on north Las Vegas Blvd. It’s quite exciting to see all of the cranes in the sky when you’re looking at the strip.

But back to these units available for assignment in Trump:

Assignable Condo in Trump Towers Las VegasThe ONE Bedroom is currently available for assignment at $855,000. This buyer is losing money at this price. Just to give you an idea of what’s currently available for one bedrooms, click HERE. You will see that there is only one unit available under this price on the 16th floor.

The Studio is currently available for assignment at $615,000. Same situation on this property. This is the cheapest unit in the building by $60,000!! Yes, folks this is a GREAT DEAL! To see the other Studios currently on the market, click HERE.

Please contact me directly to get more details on these units. My toll Free number is 866-589-1646 or you can email me at Felipe@felipecrook.com.

Alright everyone, this is my first attempt at a video blog. I’m sure as I learn the tricks of the trade of cinematography it’ll be a little more fancy, but my goal was to put a video on the web about who I am so here it is! I will be adding video blogs to my site at least twice a month from previewing properties and luxury homes on the market. These videos are a great way to see what I’m seeing and provide more information to my clients. Keep coming back to see more!!
