One of the best things about somebody selling their house is that you—and me—get to peek inside while it’s on the market. And when that person is Heather Dunhill, Sarasota Magazine’s beauty and fashion editor, the temptation is overwhelming. Heather is famous around town for her personal style. How has this carried over to where she lives? Heather’s home—which she shares with husband Ted Meekma—lives up to expectations. It’s elegant, a little understated, and full of special things.
Here’s something you don’t see very often in our area: a reasonably authentic enormous Tudor just like the kind they have in upper middle class suburbs up north—the Shakers Heights and Grosse Pointes of the U.S. It’s located in Bradenton, on a beautiful two-plus acre lot right on Warner’s West Bayou, an area that could certainly be described as the Grosse Pointe of Bradenton. The home was built in 1981 but seems older, and I mean that in the best sense of the word.
A $5 million dollar home is generally considered the entry level to true luxury housing in Sarasota, and there certainly are a bunch of them to chose from. About 70 are currently on the market, if you include Longboat, Bradenton, etc. Compare this to Palm Beach, where there are 152, or Naples, with a whopping 191. To make ourselves feel better perhaps we should compare with Tampa, with its measly 13. What do you get for that price?
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".
