On the Move: Relocation spotlight shines on Heritage Texas Properties
On the move: Vertical living offers appeal for some relocation buyersAs recovery efforts begin in Houston following Hurricane Harvey, many displaced residents are being forced to make critical decisions about their future housing plans. Will they be able to repair and return to their homes, or will they have to seek alternative options? Even those who didn't flood, are acutely aware of the potential risk in certain areas, and might rethink their current location.
On the move: Real estate, relocation communities active in Harvey effortsThe words "Houston Strong" have been widely displayed across various social media pages following the massive flooding brought on by Hurricane Harvey. But, they are more than just words. They represent the unwavering spirit of the people of Houston, who worked together during an unprecedented, harrowing time for the city.
When it comes to assisting people with their move to Houston, Kirsten Abney, senior vice president of Heritage Texas Properties, said preparation and having the proper resources can go a long way. This is true whether someone is moving due to an employment-based relocation, or whether they are moving on their own. And, as with any life-altering event, relocation can be overwhelming and stressful. There are so many things to be done, that it might be difficult to know what to do first.
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".
