The Action: Long-time clients of agent Ira Jelinek were clear in their desire for a spacious condominium near their workplace in York region. So they quickly zeroed in on this two-bedroom penthouse at the Allegra building near Rainbow Creek Park. "In the Vaughan and Woodbridge areas … there aren't many condo developments, so you don't have much choice," Mr. Jelinek said. "[In the case of this unit] the location was right, the price was right and the size is what [the buyers] were looking for."
The Action: Around Long Branch Park, the housing stock is quite varied and few share similarities to this updated semi-detached house on a 26-by-100-foot corner lot. Despite several dozen visitors in mid-November, one was in no rush to register the first offer. "It was a bit of a slow build with booked showings, but the open houses were very busy," said agent Terri Perras.
DAYS ON THE MARKET: FourThe Action: When many families were partaking in Thanksgiving festivities, the sellers of this 1,169-square-foot bungalow were slowly served three bids over the course of a few days. "They don't tend to go that quickly and why it did is a combination of a lot of research about price – because it doesn't matter how good the realtor is, the market value is what the home will sell for – and … the fact the house was beautiful," agent Clare Packer said.
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".
