How America Leaves Billions Behind in Residential Real Estate and How to Maximize Your Home’s Value (Buying and Selling Homes, Staging a Home to Sell)

By Tracy McLaughlin, Kevin Lake

#1 New Release in Home Design Remodeling & Renovation ─ A Must-Read for Success in the Housing Market

The advice you didn’t know you needed. Because most people only enter the real estate world once a decade or less, few really know how it works. The housing market elicits a lot of emotions, from excitement to anxiety. Oftentimes, this can blind us to the realities of how the market works. Top residential real estate agent Tracy McLaughlin is here to change our understanding of the home sale process. From those buying their first home to sellers with some experience, this book is packed with essential advice.

A roadmap for buyers and sellers. In nearly all real estate sales, buyers and sellers leave behind thousands—or even hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars—on the table. As frightening as this reality is, it continually happens because one simple decision, among the countless made during the entire process, can greatly impact the outcome of the transaction.

Bridging the gap between information and expertise. Because of the way technology has impacted real estate sales, buyers and sellers have greater access to information and even the ability to direct the sales process. While knowing market information is helpful in real estate sales, most people still lack a key aspect: expertise. By presenting an inside view on sales, McLaughlin provides a guide for maximizing the value of the sale and purchase of homes.

In this book by real estate expert Tracy McLaughlin, readers will find…

  • Detailed guidelines for how to save money and make money
  • Advice for finding the right real estate agent
  • The real estate for dummies book every home buyer or seller needs

If you’ve looked for guidance in books such as Dream Home, Nolo’s Essential Guide to Buying Your First Home, and Home Buying Kit For Dummies, then you’ll find more of what you’re looking for in Real Estate Rescue with Tracy McLaughlin.

On Women, Wisdom, and Ways to Love

Before Becca Anderson was a best-selling author, she was a bright-eyed bibliophile trying to define love. In Let Me Count the Ways, the beloved writer returns with specially curated quotes and snippets of poetry, affirmations, and love letters from her favorite women.

Different ways to say I love you. Author Hoda Kotb, I Really Needed This Today, meets Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw in this empowering and inspirational book for women everywhere. In the much-loved style of Rupi Kaur one-liners, Let Me Count the Ways showcases the best quotes from women alongside gorgeous illustrations. From black authors like Nigerian Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to American authors like Joyce Carol Oates, this collection of quotes follows women from France, Cuba, Lebanon, Bulgaria, Japan, and more. Packed full of different ways to say I love you, readers can finally step into the love lives of famous women and discover that their love stories aren’t so different from ours.

Quotes specially curated for her. If there’s one thing that unites all women (and people!), it’s love. Whether painful or passionate, love is a powerful force. But you don’t have to be Wonder Woman to survive heartbreak or embark on a romantic adventure—that’s why you have your tribe of women. By collecting reflections on every kind of love and all the ways to love, Anderson uses inspirational quotes to remind women one thing—we are not alone. In chapters like “What Is Love?,” “Self Love,” and “Love Is Love Is Love,” you’ll find quotes from:

  • Love letters by Empress Josephine, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Abigail Adams
  • Poetry by Miss Lauryn Hill, Lady Nakatomi, and Sandra Cisneros
  • Non-binary women like George Eliot, Sidonie Gabrielle Colette, and Audre Lorde

Your Leadership Moment

By

This book is for:

  1. Social entrepreneurs. Much of the insight in YLM comes from the author’s pioneering work on leadership for social enterprises and impact investors. Through work with organizations such as Acumen, which is the world’s pre-eminent impact investor, YLM has a potential audience of approximately 800,000 change-makers, students of leadership, and highly-influential thought leaders worldwide, all of whom have been directly exposed to me and my work. There is a strong market here.
  2. Current/former clients, students of Adaptive Leadership and purchasers of previous books. ​The leadership model upon which YLM is based has a strong following of approximately 12,000 students from Harvard Kennedy School and another 15,000-20,000 who have taken an in-person course. This is the kind of audience that has already demonstrated its willingness to purchase this kind of book. I reach about 1,000 participants per year in person, each of whom would be required to purchase a copy of the book. I also have deep reach with key influencers in emerging markets in Kenya, Nigeria, India, and elsewhere across East Africa, who are committed to democratizing leadership.
  3. General leadership development readers, practitioners and trainers. The leadership development market in the US alone is approximately $50 billion annually and growing. Figures are hard to come by on how much is spent on books. As a proxy indicator, Harvard Business Review (HBR) and Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) have approximately 2.5 million unique visitors per month. HBR also has 286,000 paying subscribers. Given HBR and SSIR’s demonstrated interest in the leadership model described in YLM, a coordinated effort to engage them in promotion is worth pursuing.
  4. Grantmaking executives and program officers working on democracy building and civic engagement. Philanthropic and grantmaking organizations give approximately $140 billion/year, of which about $26.8 billion go to causes of topical interest to YLM. A number of my clients are drawn from this audience, including the Obama Foundation in Chicago, the Democracy Fund in DC, the Heinz Endowment in Pittsburgh (John Kerry’s wife’s family’s org), USAID, and the Rockefeller Foundation in NYC. All have expressed a strong interest in supporting the message and circulation of this book.
  5. Executives of companies and organization who are trying to democratize “X”. ​It seems these days that everyone is trying to democratize something, e.g. technology, data privacy, blockchain, energy access, health access, etc. I have worked with organizations such as Google, Microsoft and the premier blockchain company on the nexus of YLM and their work. These executives and the thousands of employees I have worked with over the years are a ripe audience for this book. In fact, Google’s former head of HR Laszlo Bock has written his own book ​Work Rules!: Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You  Live...,​ which ​acknowledges the value of the adaptive leadership model to Google’s growth.
  6. People like the author’s own family. ​Last, but not at all least, the hope is that this book and its message will find its way into the hands of people like the author’s father. Blue-collar, “purple” state, Trump-Obama voters, who hold tremendous sway on the direction of American democracy. People such as PTA Presidents, local political hopefuls, and other local civic groups hold the most hope for restoring a vibrant democracy. The down to earth, un-jargony tone of YLM aims to reach this audience as a secondary target.

Words Whispered in Water

#1 New Release in Civil Engineering & Environmental ─ The New Orleans Flood, U.S. Corruption, and Other Types of Disasters

In the aftermath of one of the worst disasters in U.S. history, Words Whispered in Water tells the story of one woman’s fight—against all odds—to expose a mammoth federal agency—and win.

It’s a horror story, a mystery, and David and Goliath story all in one. In 2005, the entire world watched as a major U.S. city was nearly wiped off the map. The levees ruptured and New Orleans drowned. But while newscasters attributed the New Orleans flood to “natural catastrophes” and other types of disasters, citizen investigator Sandy Rosenthal set out to expose the true culprit and compel the media and government to tell the truth. This is her story.

When the protective steel flood-walls broke, the Army Corps of Engineers—with cooperation from big media—turned the blame on natural types of disasters. In the chaotic aftermath, Rosenthal uncovers the U.S. corruption, and big media at root. Follow this New Orleans hero as she exposes the federal agency’s egregious design errors and eventually changes the narrative surrounding the New Orleans flood. In this engaging and revealing tale of man versus nature and man versus man, Words Whispered in Water proves that the power of a single individual is alive and well.

If you enjoyed books like The Johnstown FloodBreach of Faith, or The Great Deluge, then Words Whispered in Water is your next read!
