Chinese buyers are taking over the world. Just check out the billionaire demographic. Asia is off the charts! Meanwhile, rich folk in Europe are dwindling (probably fleeing, especially in France where they have 75% tax on affluent people)
Here's a tongue in cheek article I penned for Asian Real Estate Magazine that's worth reading if you are gonna take on Asian clients! Enjoy!

I was offered a few golf lesson but I declined (I look horrible in plaid!)

When I met Tamara Suminski last year in New Orleans during the National Association of Realtors Conference (aka Nardigras), she was such a ball of sunshine....like me! Tamara is the current Chair for California Association of Realtors' Young Professionals Network.
Well, as luck would have it, we are going to share the stage come April 20, 2011. We've been invited to speak about "Mastering Technology in Real Estate." Check out the flyer for deets.
PS: I love how there are 4 languages on the flyer! I speak Chinese & English. I hope Tamara speaks the other 2!
Yet ANOTHER publication interviews Hermanity this year....and it's not even April yet! This time A.R.E. Magazine picks my brain about my favorite real estate sites, servicing the Asian-American Market & Tiger Moms.
Here's a great excerpt:
A.R.E. Mag: "There is a new generation that has witnessed the foreclosure epidemic & may no longer view home ownership as the American Dream. What is your advice to them about home ownership? "
Hermanity: "What? You want to live in your parents' basement forever? That's cute after college in your 20's but not so cute in your 30's. If the foreclosure crisis has taught us anything, it's that diving blindly into home ownership is bad...."
Read the rest of my helpful hilarious interview, schlock full of my witty advice here!
Apparently, I am headlining this event for Asian Real Estate Association of America. I dunno why, because my fellow panelists are equally if not more qualified to discuss "Successful Social Networking" than me. Maybe I am the prettiest? Or the most modest?
I'm excited to be on stage with fellow UC Berkeley Alum Senh Duong, who pioneered the famous film review site Rottentomatoes.com. I want to get his take on my favorite films Fame and Elvira Mistress of the Dark
Below is Dao Tran's interview with me before I hit the stage!
Re-living an old habitatforhermanity.com episode for my adoring audience in Las Vegas. The thrill of a live audience is amazing! Thank you for all the Hermanity fans who came out to see me. Much needed validation of my material and humor.
I was Guest Speaker for "Technology Driven Top Producers" for real estate event put on by www.areaa.org/EDGE & sponsored by Wells Fargo. Totally sold out event! Standing room only! There was even a couple who flew out from Arizona to see me! Here are some pix from the event on my facebook fan page (almost 6000 fans thus far!).
