Until recently, most of Tania Ventura’s internet shopping experience was based around books ordered over Amazon. But she’s now well past browsing for her favourite authors. Tania used her laptop to buy a house in a province she’s never been to. From Toronto, Ont., she researched Cochrane, Alta., and purchased, at the pre-construction phase, a home through Excel Homes. It’s in Heartland, a master-planned community by Apex Land.
When Johnna Marie Labud and Aileen Arieta thought about what they wanted out of their first home purchase, a townhome in Copperfield won their hearts. The married couple, originally from the Philippines, will soon be leaving a single-family home they’ve been renting on 17th Avenue S.W. for Chalet No6, by Hopewell Residential. At the recent Calgary Region SAM (Sales and Marketing) Awards, Hopewell was crowned Multi-Family Builder of the Year.
A look at the main level of the Hudson 2 by Brookfield Residential in Symons Gate. Supplied / Calgary Herald When a home is as well-received as a recent split-level model by Brookfield Residential, it can set the foundation for future designs to enjoy similar success. Since the Hudson was brought to market, it’s been one of the seasoned builder’s top-selling single-family floor plans.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
