Recently H&R Magazine learned of some New Changes in Fashion Retail. An exciting retail merchandising, business opportunity called MK Collab. MK Collab is changing the ways in which retail shopping is done. I was fascinated when I stumbled upon this unique marketing and business platform. MK was developed by Marisa Kenson a veteran of 25 years in the fashion industry. Marisa, is the founder and creator of this magnificent win-win concept which is growing in leaps and bounds by her very own unique platform. SEE VIDEO for details.
It was Debra Osborne, a business associate of Home & Realty Magazine and associate of MK Collab who inspired me to learn more about MK Collab as well as her friend Maria DiGiovani.
Home & Realty Magazine as everyone knows, is connected to some of the finest names in the Luxury and Lifestyle markets. We go out of our way to astringently filter the best brands available to benefit our readers. We represent brands such as Four Seasons Hotels, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Wells Fargo Bank, Coldwell Banker Luxury Previews, and many more.
I was thoroughly convinced upon seeing some of these high profiled women like Debra Osborne, who’s names were associated with this fine group. I then realized that Marisa Kenson founder of MK Collab had created a BLOCKBUSTER! H&R Magazine wanted to tell everyone, how MK Collab is changing the face of retail fashion shopping!

As you can see my fondness for cars began at a very early age back in time when photographs were only in black and white. I didn’t know it at the time however, my soon to be brother Robert was being created and that day, I was pulling two people in my first car and I didn’t even know it! I was told much later in life that my brother arrived about four weeks after my dad took this photo of the World’s BEST MOM and her later to be car crazy son!
The most exciting thing about living with my parents when I was young was that my dad had also been a car enthusiast. That was real cool when ever I had the itch to upgrade the cars that I was driving, when ever I earned the extra money! I never received any opposition from my dad. My mom tried to slow me down on some of my purchases but, my dad never stood in my way. As a matter of fact it was my dad who found my very first Corvette! It was a 1959 Corvette with two tops. It was a convertible with a removable hard top. Long story short the car was gorgeous and of course I didn’t have enough money to purchase it! But dad came through! I actually think he was living his life through mine by helping me pay the difference. I think as a parent myself, I sometimes reflect on my own two sons by being excited for some of the things they did. For example, when my two sons had received their Eagle Scout Badges when they were Boy Scouts, I was standing there feeling like I was getting the award, and I felt that way twice! Parents do those things. Well hats off to my dad because, I really wanted that Corvette!
As the years passed I spent countless hours doing all kinds of restorations on older Corvettes which I had purchased only to drive, flip and make a profit. My best friend Ray had a garage. While many of our other friends were earning extra money at the Shuttle Meadow Country Club back in Connecticut caddying, Ray and I were rebuilding muscle cars mostly Corvettes however, many Chevelle’s and a few Oldsmobile 442’s and plenty of Mustangs!
The video below are some photos I took at a couple of car shows here in Sunny California. I had them put together for your enjoyment by Home & Realty Magazine’s programmers. I hope you enjoy the show we titled it California Cars!

You don’t take a photograph, you make it.-Ansel Adams
It was a beautiful sunny day today in southern California we were doing a photo shoot for Sherry Campbell real estate agent for Re/Max Terrasol of Huntington Beach at the Alamitos Bay Marina in Long Beach.
Sherry a 15 year veteran in real estate sales recently joined forces with Re/Max Terrasol headed by Huntington’s renowned broker Leo Bettancourt for those of you who haven’t read my recent post last week about this fabulous connection between Sherry Campbell and Re/Max Terrasol. Sherry has only been seated for a couple of weeks in her new agency and already has converted thunder into lightning with her new business move to Re/Max Terrasol, she has 3 homes sold already, 2 in escrow, and another offer pending!
Today’s photo shoot of Sherry will be utilized for a combination of several branding and advertising campaigns. Sherry will be communicating to her future prospects and former clients both in Home & Realty Magazine on line and in custom designed printed formats, created by Home & Realty Magazine’s design studio.
Sherry was excited that we coordinated her photo shoot down at the marina! She is a certified Scuba diver and I’d put heavy money on a bet that she’s part fish! Sherry loves being underwater with her Scuba friends whenever she’s not selling real estate! She’s a very strategic business person with a passion for business and underwater pleasure! We wish Sherry much success with her new friends at Re/Max Terrasol and hope you welcome her when she comes calling for your business!
