Episode 8: The Three Sixty Perspective

For this episode, we had the pleasure of connecting with the founders of Buffalo’s Three Sixty Views, Tony Thomas and Jordan Scinta. Established in 2017, Three Sixty Views set out to deliver high quality digital content for real estate using the latest technologies available. We have worked with Tony and Jordan from the beginning and have always been amazed by the photography and videography they capture of our properties and available spaces. Their grit and go-getter attitudes have propelled their business into the success that it is today, and we loved getting to discuss the history of Three Sixty Views, the future of visual marketing for real estate, and how technology is changing the industry for the better. We hope you love listening to this one was much as we loved recording it.

Episode 7: The Purpose of Public Art

Episode 7 is all about Public Art, a topic that was inspired by an ongoing project at Buffalo’s Lafayette Court Building. Currently, Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation is in the process of completing a significant renovation to modernize the lobby, tenant spaces, and building exterior. Through our renovation process, we were able to partner with a local artist, Danielle Saeva, to create six unique window murals (with an obvious Buffalo flavor) that we think the public will love! Danielle joined us for this episode to discuss the impact of public art and why it has become such a staple within our city.

Why Use A Third Party HOA Manager?

Homeowners associations (HOA) are an excellent tool used by a group of organized homeowners, typically in a large planned housing development, to help organize, inform, and enforce standards related to the presentation and upkeep of property within a development. Typically governed by a collection of volunteer residents from the neighborhood, the workload associated with various roles in the HOA can become overwhelming. Managing budgets, vendors and scheduling related to lawncare, snow removal, deck and roof repairs in combination with regular meetings, collection of dues and a myriad of additional tasks and you can quickly see why.

As we enter the peak of the busiest rental and moving period, the array of available apartment options can be overwhelming. Whether you’re an experienced renter, or this is your first time renting, finding the perfect apartment that fits both your lifestyle and budget can be a difficult task. There are an endless amount of questions to consider, such as do you prefer downtown or the suburbs? A cozy duplex or an apartment community? What are your “must have” factors? Parking? Maybe an abundance of natural light? 


Although these questions are all based on personal preference and we can’t answer them for you, we can guide you through some of the top considerations that should make it onto your checklist. 


Post-COVID-19: The Future of Office and Work

While we are still a long way from completely overcoming COVID-19, the release of effective vaccines has delivered a dose of optimism to many organizations and employees who are trying to plan for a world post-pandemic. Navigating the COVID-19 aftermath will not only be one of the biggest personal challenges many will have to face in their lifetime, but also one of the biggest business challenges in our history. 
 


The National Importance of Public Transportation to Commercial Real Estate

It seems intuitive that commercial real estate properties proximate to public transportation would be more sought after, and would, therefore, have higher property values and draw higher rental rates. While intuition is important in commercial real estate, facts must always support our thinking. So, let’s take a look at some of the data that confirms a longstanding rule of real estate development: location matters. This axiom is particularly true when it comes to locations and public transportation.


Looking Ahead

There is no blueprint to follow when it comes to handling the changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, there is only reliance on our previous experience, real time updates from our global network and confidence that we can be industry leaders in this time of crisis.


Managing Buildings and Building Relationships

When a commercial building is empty, it still needs to be thoughtfully managed and monitored. In recent weeks, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, many buildings that housed “non-essential” businesses have been temporarily vacated.


Expecting the Unexpected

At Ciminelli, our real estate professionals have come to expect the unexpected. This is increasingly true in real estate development.
