The Las Vegas Brand Name is Hotter Than Ever!!

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

The fourth annual list of brand winners and losers from marketing firms Landor Associates and Penn Schoen & Berland has been released and Las Vegas is right at the top! The survey asks 2,017 consumers to rank 92 brands that are most familiar to them and MS Las Vegas Real Estate couldn’t be more ecstatic about the results! “Las Vegas has taken the cake as THE destination for people of all ages and parts of the country to vacation and beaten out such stiff competition as New York City and Miami,” the report said. Holy desert destination Batman! It’s very simple, the foundation that supports the market for Las Vegas homes is the performance of the Las Vegas economy. Believe me, we’re humming right along and we haven’t heard any loud popping noise (the so-called housing bubble). What were the exact ranking results for the 2006 survey? Google was number one, followed by Las Vegas, iPod, YouTube and eBay. That’s right, Las Vegas finished one spot ahead of iPod! The Michelle Sterling Team at Prudential Americana is also thrilled about the number one ranking of Google as a brand! How come? Our website occupies a truly dominant position on the Google search engine for hundreds of search phrases that represent the Las Vegas residential real estate market. Lucky for us? Well, not really. Take one look at our world-class website and you’ll understand why we’re at the top of our game…and the top of Google!

A Real Life CSI Story in Las Vegas!

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

Die-hard fans probably know that Anthony Zuiker is the creator of the “CSI” television crime drama. But here’s something you may not have known, Zuiker is a 1991 graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and is an alumnus of Chaparral High School in Las Vegas! How cool is that? Luckily for us, Mr. Zuiker is serious about giving back to his home community. In fact, he’s making an impressive jump-start contribution to a brand new piece of very special Henderson real estate. Anthony Zuiker recently committed one million dollars to help build a new $37 million crime lab in Henderson, Nevada! It’s a sure bet that when the facility is finished, film crews from the CSI series will be doing some “on location” filming!
