Interluxe and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Have Partnered to Sell One-Of-A-Kind Estate

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 29, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Offering luxury properties through online auction has proven to be successful for both buyer and seller.  Interluxe continues to represent the highest level of real estate in the country and this property is no exception. Interluxe, in partnership with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, California Properties, is auctioning an estate in Coronado, CA with over 160 ft. of waterfront footage and one of the largest boat slips in the Cays.  Previews begin on Thurs., April 20 and the online auction begins on Mon., April 24 at 9 a.m. EST.

Interluxe, the leading online luxury real estate marketplace, is a resource for agents, buyers and sellers.  As more and more home buyers become aware of the benefits of considering our services, they truly understand the benefit we bring to everyone.  Through an intensive marketing campaign, Interluxe is able to assist the agents by reaching buyers nationally and internationally, that might not have been aware of the property.  In addition, all buyers are offered a completely transparent bidding process, something a typical real estate transaction cannot offer.  The benefit to the seller is having a home show in a very short amount of time to only qualified bidders and a fast and easy closing process.

“Having worked in the luxury real estate auction business for over 18 years, my experience provided the benefit of seeing the market readiness for an online model,” said Stacy Kirk, director of client development for Interluxe.  “Consumers are looking for the best resource to provide them with the exact product they are searching for, all while taking the shortest amount of time.  Interluxe does just that while working with real estate agents to achieve our common goal for the seller, reach as many qualified buyers as possible and provide a streamlined and transparent process to buy the home of your dreams.”

As soon as you enter the property you are greeted by a floating glass main staircase that centers the open floorplan, that includes five en-suite bedrooms, many with gas fireplaces and balconies and an 875 square-foot master bedroom with a separate lounge area separated by an exposed fireplace.  A 4,700-bottle wine cellar, an exercise room with sauna and steam room, and a roof top deck to watch the waterfront sunsets, are just a few of many luxuries included in this private home.  In addition to the 160 feet of water frontage, a wrap-around pool with swim up bar and secluded spa only add to the outdoor experience of the home.

Today, kids from all over the U.S. look forward to showing off their foul-smelling sneakers for a chance to win a trip to New York for the national competition. This event is the ultimate test – the worst of the worst – and each year demonstrates how smelly kid’s sneakers can get while they’re doing what they enjoy.  This year’s contestants had to work hard to win over the judges because our veteran panel knows what it takes to win this competition.  Our professional judges include NASA “Master Sniffer” George Aldrich, Chemical Specialist for NASA space missions, and Rachel Herz, Ph.D., an expert and author on the psychology of smell.

Alaska Airlines’ California growth continues, adding six new nonstop routes from San Diego

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Alaska is the fastest-growing airline in San Diego with 40 daily departures to 28 destinations

Update: Previous version of news release issued contained an incorrect start date for San Diego-Omaha route.

SAN DIEGO, March 15, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Alaska Airlines today announced increased investment in Southern California by adding service to six new destinations from San Diego International Airport. New nonstop service includes daily flights to Albuquerque, New Mexico; Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Omaha, Nebraska; and St. Louis. By late August, Alaska will fly 40 daily departures to 28 destinations from San Diego, including the most nonstop flights to Mexico and Hawaii.

Alaska is quickly establishing itself as the go-to airline for people on the West Coast. Today’s news comes on the heels of Alaska’s announcement last week adding 13 nonstop routes from the Bay Area – the single largest announcement in company history.

“Alaska Airlines has grown more than any other carrier in San Diego over the last five years, with the addition of 18 nonstop destinations and nearly twice as many departing seats,” said John Kirby, vice president of capacity planning at Alaska Airlines. “We want to thank Airport Authority President and CEO Thella Bowens and her terrific team for their partnership. Without Thella’s strong leadership and support over the years, our growth wouldn’t have been possible.”

The new flights build on previously announced routes, which include daily nonstop flights between San Diego and Baltimore starting today, three-times-daily service between San Diego and Sacramento starting tomorrow, and daily service between San Diego and Mexico City. Flight schedules for Mexico City will be announced in the coming months, pending government approval.

From San Diego, guests can make convenient connections to Tokyo and London, served by partner carriers Japan Airlines and British Airways, while enjoying the benefits of Alaska’s award-winning customer service and loyalty program. Keep Reading

All-New Zero-Emissions-Capable London Taxi Tested to Extremes in Arctic Circle

COVENTRY, England, March 6, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — New pictures from London Taxi Company (LTC) demonstrate part of the extreme testing programme the all-new electric black cab is undergoing.

Under way now in the lower reaches of the Arctic Circle, the regime to check the vehicle performance in even the harshest conditions will only get more stringent over the coming weeks, with the taxi set to be cooled down in giant fridges to -49°C.

These checks seek to guarantee that the vehicle will always start, perform and enjoy class-leading electric battery powered range in the harshest of temperatures. The new range extended electric taxi will also undergo similar endurance testing in extreme heat environments before it is deemed ready for sale.

Quality Director Wolfram Liedtke explains: “Our new taxi is being developed with two key engineering principles – quality and endurance, to meet the needs of the demanding taxi duty cycle.  We soon commit the product to series production at our all-new manufacturing facility in Ansty, near Coventry.  It will be, without doubt, the highest quality and resilient product in London Taxi’s 98 year history.”

The testing programme also serves to check the quality of driver and passenger experience in extreme conditions. This means checking that cab heating and ventilation continue to perform to the highest standards – no matter how bitter or oppressive the temperature outside.

Driving experience is also checked – with the impact of grip, drivability and visibility tested to extremes.  LTC engineers can then make adjustments to ensure that passengers and drivers have the best and most comfortable experience, regardless of the conditions outside.

Steve McNamara, General Secretary at the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association, says: “This new clean, modern, 21st century vehicle will ensure that the world’s best cab drivers now have the best tool for the job.”

London Taxi Company CEO, Chris Gubbey, says: “Given these extremes of testing – we are demonstrating that our vehicle will be a taxi for London and the world over, capable and at home in any city.”

LTC is due to open its new facility on the 22nd March 2017 thanks to a £300 million-pound investment from parent company Geely.
