It was during the BuiltWorlds panel at the MIPIM PropTech Summit this year that I heard something that made me question the nature of how we create our built environment. It came from Doug Chambers, founder of FieldLens, a construction collaboration tool. They made headlines earlier this year by getting acquired to one of the world’s fastest growing startups, WeWork.
The internet has enabled the next generation of penny pinchers to share their strategies on saving money. Websites like nerdwallet.com and nextadvisor.com share which credit cards have the best rates and return the most points. There is even a bona fide celebrity in this world of purchase and savings optimization. “The Points Guy” was an analyst at Morgan Stanley until he turned his side job obsessively collecting airline miles into a full-time gig.
Anyone that has done a deal in commercial real estate knows that one of the major pinch points in any transaction is the appraisal. Most financiers require it to limit their liability exposure and due to the cost of a commercial appraisal many would-be borrowers wait until they have lending terms in front of them before ordering it. The problem is, commercial appraisals range from one hundred to two hundred and fifty pages and can take over a month for an appraiser to deliver.
@Bradley_Greiwe If ethical behavior becomes a marketable diversifier in the investment community then this is likely the first of many firms to take this approach. Glad to see people are voting with their dollars, both in their purchases and in their portfolio.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
