Laura Bretan – How her life changed forever

June 2, 2016 Leave a comment

Laura Bretan is a 13 year old girl who made an spectacular appearance in America’s Got Talent.  She is indeed specially talented, but how “her life changed forever” is presented in a very special way.

The video and Laura’s experience has nothing to do with Puerto Rico or even with Real Estate Law.  On the other hand, it has everything to do with achieving goals and living life for what one loves and desires the most.  I particularly enjoyed this part and decided to share this with you.

I hope you enjoy it!

Puerto Rico 2016 – A current state of affairs

May 26, 2016 Leave a comment

Yesterday, I was listening to a radio show on my way home and the subject was the financial issues being faced by the Government of Puerto Rico.  Of course, any subject enjoys a gama of points of view and plenty of people willing to share their opinion with the rest of us.  I am doing it right now.

Yet, one fellow came up and stated the following:  “The Government has shot itself in the foot.  Lack of delivery of services, making things to complicated for the rest of us, irresponsible financial practices, corruption and a series of decisions from administration to administration that has taken them to their current condition.  Yet I, as a  business person, I am doing well.  Business owners are doing well.”

A few hours before listening to this fellow on the radio, I was being interviewed on TV Channel 4.  The reporter asked me about the economy and I had given the reporter a similar response.

I was very happy to see that I am not the only one with the point of view I share on this post.  I am a firm believer that one creates his or her future.  Real estate business is no exception.

I am blessed to have earned the trust of a group of brokers who are hard, ethical professionals always working hard to succeed.  These professionals work with me and my team every week to make real estate transactions a reality, and we do not have time for nor allow any negativity to sorround us at anytime.  Negativity is not allowed in our environments.  We are all being successful, but it is noteworthy that we work hard for that success.

Tough times do exist, but if one works hard, has a good work ethics, has the knowledge on what to do and goes out and actually does it, one will be most likely to succeed.

It is undeniable that Puerto Rico’s Government is going through some difficult times as a result of a series of practices and bad decisions politicians have taken throughout the years.

Notwithstanding this, Puerto Rico’s businesses are stepping up to the plate by improving their services, caring more for their clients, offering better products and better services, and seeking the prosperity available to anyone who works hard to earn it.

Puerto Rico is very well alive, and business people all over the island love being here and work very hard to make Puerto Rico a true island of enchantment.

Welcome home!

Very truly yours,

Here is a link to an article published today in my Puerto Rico Legal Blog page about property taxes in Puerto Rico.

The information is time sensitive and should be immediately reviewed by any property owner in Puerto Rico, including Vieques.

Here is a link to the CRIM Internet page.  On the superior right hand area of the page, you will find a button to click for ENGLISH translation of the page.

If you want to check on the status of your property tax account, call CRIM with your property tax ID number–in Spanish “número de catastro.”  They have bilingual staff at hand.
