Interview with an Auctioneer March 5, 2007

Posted by AlynnROCK Group in Auction News, Real Estate News.

crowd3.jpgLast week The Foreclosure Report reported on a Houston Chronicle article entitled “Interview with an Auctioneer”. An interesting article that quotes a fellow real estate auctioneer. Among some of my favorite quotes:

“Properties that make sense in the traditional market of real estate make better sense at an auction. I’ve been trying to tell people that for years, but I don’t think I’ve made many converts among the real estate brokers.”

“In a real estate auction, you don’t use that bid calling like those cow sellers. Everybody can understand where the bid is, what we’re asking for, because the majority of people never have been to an auction. Am I going to scratch my nose and end up with a property? No, it’s not going to happen.”

superfranks2.jpgYes, this is a Real Estate Auction blog, but one thing that Auctioneers love love love is to spend time with family and EAT! We love to have a good time and family always always comes first. So, when friends of ours opened the new “Super Franks Fun Adventure“, we had to go check it out! WOW!

What a fantastic concept – as soon as anyone walks in the door of this 34,000 square foot FUN center there is a feeling of anticipation and excitement! They have wonderful food (love that homemade pizza & the salads!…I heard a rumor that their menu will soon be expanding and I can’t wait to try out the BBQ chicken pizza when it does!), a Starbuck’s cafe (with plenty of benches and tables for moms to sit and sip their lattes while watching the kids do their tumbling or dodgeball tournaments in the gym), glow-in-the-dark mini golf (definitely wear white so you can glow too!), themed party rooms (I’m a big fan of the princess castle room where little girls can invite all of their friends for a tea party and dress like princesses with all of the dress-up clothes….but there are sports rooms as well so the guys don’t feel forgotten!) and a great arcade room (with all non-violent games so parents can bring even their youngest without having to worry about guarding their little eyes from too much blood or super-skimpy cartoon girls).
And, to add to the genius behind the design, they have several rooms available for corporate use. As soon as we checked those rooms out, we knew we needed to start hosting our monthly “Ca$hFlow 101 Club” at Super Franks as we are quickly outgrowing our conference room….and Super Franks is just right up the street from our office!

We’re not the only ones to discover Super Franks Fun Adventure! Their Grand Opening was just on January 27, and already the local 94566 bloggers have taken notice and they have had feature articles written about them at Inside Bay Area and the Contra Costa Times newspaper.

Get a sneak peek of all the fun by checking out the photos on their website, or better yet, just take the whole family and have a great time! They absolutely live up to their slogan “A Family Entertainment Center Created ‘By Parents For Parents'”
