北卡创业园 

本报记者白松北卡图文报道】你听说过北卡创业园吗? 这是一个什么样的园子呢? 近日,记者采访了创业园的创办人陈海娜(Hannah Chan)和创业园里的创业家们。
  北卡创业园位位于凯瑞 (Cary)的Kildaire Farm商业中心,从凯瑞市中心顺着Kildaire Farm路往南走,不到一英里,5分钟就到了,马路东边,远远望去,“北卡创业园 901 Cary Professional Park”几个深底白字的牌匾很醒目挂在庭院围墙的圆拱形门上,白色的围墙上边的边框和北卡创业园的牌匾底色一样,都是深灰色,拱形园门两边是两个银灰色的高过腰身的金属花瓶,围墙边地上铺了一层红色的覆盖物(Mulch),协调中透着一丝清爽的中国风,停车场围绕院墙四周,进入园门,里面还真是一个很标致的四合院,两边的厢房是一层高的房屋,后面的主楼是个小二层,小庭院收拾的整洁舒适,白色的墙壁,公司标牌和屋顶、轮廓都是深灰色,配上绿色的树木,地上的覆盖物是红色,白、黑、绿、红,非常和谐静宁,别具一格,与创业园的的创办人和各创业主们交谈,立刻打破了这种宁静,而感到了这里创业者们的热血和对未来的追求和打拼。
  “扶持他们,就像将来别人扶持我女儿一样”
  回忆自己一路走来的历程,“北卡创业园”的创办人陈海娜说:“想当初自己来北卡,举目无亲,这里没有半个朋友,完全靠自己的摸索,朋友的累积,终于有了目前的成绩,一路走来非常艰难,也是很感恩,想想我们一代移民的下一代都是要在美国做大事的,将来他们也是非常需要别人的说明和扶持的,我现在有能力了,搞一个这样的创业园,给他们这些年轻人一些扶持和帮助,就像我的女儿将来会得到别人类似的帮助和扶持一样。”
  海娜说,平常接触到很多优秀的年青人,有创业的也有找工作的,她觉得自己什么都没有也可以创出一番天地来,给这些优秀的年青人一些帮助,他们的企业发展了,就会创造更多的就业机会。
  2015年初见到这个小庭院,正中海娜的“创业园”的下怀, 她觉得这个小庭院很有氛围,很适合培养未来企业家,年青的华人企业家聚在一起,抱团取暖,互相鼓励,位置也很好,Kildaire Farm商业区有不少的小企业,离发展中的凯瑞市中心咫尺之遥。四合院总的建筑面积是一万平尺,有大小规格不同的房间可供创业家们选用,价格非常有竞争力,两边的厢房和后面的主楼里都有一些公共的空间,供大家聚会或者开会使用。
  目前有30家公司进驻,约三分之一是华人企业,当初买下这个院子的时候已经有租户,只能逐渐有客户合约到期后再进驻更多的华人企业。
  眼下进驻的华人企业有:穆援越律师事务所、鼎嘉保险公司、RDU贷款、Clarity房屋检查、LL中美国际互联咨询服务公司、Datalenty(集IT、金融、和个人发展咨询)Aohey手机软件开发、龙腾投资有限公司,这里离海娜自己的房地产办公室只有2-3分钟的开车距离,而且在服务方面基本上形成一条龙服务,给来北卡置产投资创业的人来说可以一家搞定。
  海娜说,现在还有少量办公室,欢迎新的创业者入住。海娜还可以为新入驻的公司提供一些办公配套家具,她希望以这样的方式能帮到这些有志向的年青创业者们,同时保持创业园应有水平的范儿。海娜还想和住户们商量,为非营利机构提供活动的场所。
  创业园的业主如是说
  2015年5月,创业园过户不久,陈海娜迎来了创业园的第一位房客,Edward Mu穆援越律师事务所,很快鼎嘉保险 Grace Shen和RDU Mortgage Lisa Wu也进驻了创业园,这样华人的服务业逐渐形成了一个互助合作链,除了给客户一些便利外,也会产生一些互赢的效益。
  入住的LL中美国际互联咨询服务公司刘璐介绍说,自己是从海娜的客户开始逐渐成为海娜的好朋友,她非常赞赏海娜的这种领导风范,有钱有能力的人不少,但是能拿出钱和时间来做这样的事的人只有海娜,海娜的这种做法可以解决“华人不抱团”的问题,并且她做这个事也很合适,她人脉广,又愿意付出。
  早一批入住的鼎嘉保险的沈脂红(Grace Shen)说,这样可以把资源整合起来,为华人服务提高效率,一家搞定,还有我们和海娜的经营理念很默契,彼此互赢。
  Aohey LLC 手机软件开发公司的年青老板石仁达已经开办公司一年多,本来住在一个高大上的办公楼里,也已经和海娜签订了入住合约,主要是看上了这里的创业氛围,也便于发展华人客户,再加上租金要便宜很多。
  Datalenty公司的总裁张涛(Tony Zhang),这里的创业氛围让他找到了自己创业方向的定位,为广大中小企业提供长远的金融理财服务,并且经营自己的本行公司的IT管理和个人发展的咨询,还有心愿意投资扶持有前景的年青人。
  海娜2005年来北卡,2006年开启了三角区房地产经纪人的职业生涯,2009年成立了北卡州三角区房地产投资顾问公司Cary-Raleigh Realty Inc,从当初北卡中国中心的助理每小时10$开始干起,到目前成为三角区房地产赫赫有名的专业房地产买卖、出租和管理服务公司,2011、2013、2014、2015、2016年被三角区商业杂志评选为前25名北卡三角区优秀房地产经纪人,2016年获得三角区商业杂志颁发的“房屋成交过户最多经纪人奖”,这是从三角区将近9000名持有执照的房地产经纪人中选拔出来的。
  一路走来,陈海娜不急不躁,真诚中透着敏感的商业智能,服务中结交一些合作朋友,一个成功的企业家往往是真诚踏实服务每一天,关键时善于把握住机会,做对几件大事,陈海娜就是这样一个企业家,创业园里创业主眼里的“女强人”、组织企业抱团的拓荒者和领导者。

May 2016 Site Selection Magazine

(North Carolina tied with Texas as # 1 Most Competitiveness State)

Ask any CEO or any athlete: The truest test of competitiveness is finding out how you respond to a challenge.

Today, Texas is confronting an energy sector downturn that has meant thousands of job losses, even as projects from so many other sectors keep landing there. In North Carolina, the downturn takes the form of a widely shared frown, as newly passed legislation many view as discriminatory to the LGBT community has caused major company project cancellations, event pullouts and boycotts of the state.

But if any territories are built to withstand such storms, these two are. In the analysis for Site Selection’s annual Prosperity Cup (formerly named the Competitiveness Award), Texas and North Carolina finish in a tie for No. 1, based on an index of 10 criteria that measure corporate project activity and business climate attractiveness.

What do both states’ economic development portfolios have in common? The same things any investment portfolio would: Breadth, depth and economic diversity.

“There’s a strong case here that because of the data saying North Carolina is a great place, its reputation is going to withstand the storm,” says Leonard Ponzi, managing partner of ReputationInc. and former managing partner of the Reputation Institute. (No, no relation to the infamous Charles Ponzi of the eponymous scheme, he says, acknowledging the irony of his chosen métier.) At the same time, it’s up to North Carolina to address the issues. “Stakeholders just want to have a clear position,” he says.

The state’s position of strength is clear enough, most recently bolstered by a AAA bond rating and record venture capital numbers. North Carolina Commerce Secretary John Skvarla responded by email in April to questions from Site Selection:

Site Selection Managing Editor Adam Bruns: Describe the level of concern, project delays and conversation that the social legislation has sparked with existing and prospect companies looking to grow in North Carolina. What are hearing from foreign company leaders in particular, and what are your team’s chief talking points in these conversations?

Secretary of Commerce John E. Skvarla, III: Any time the state is mentioned in national news stories where some issue is under debate, company executives are naturally curious, so the number of conversations we’ve had recently has increased due to the media attention. But maintaining dialogue with company leaders is something we do all of the time, sharing facts and explaining our programs and recent legislation. In this case, we’ve found company leaders really don’t know what’s in the law, only misunderstood bits and pieces they’ve seen in the media. I don’t find much difference between foreign and domestic leaders in this regard.

“It’s our can-do attitude that shines through. That’s an intangible companies notice about our workforce and mention often.”
— North Carolina Secretary of Commerce John E. Skvarla, III
The key and most unrealized fact is that in North Carolina private companies can make any rules and accommodations that they deem appropriate for their organization. There is no over-reach by the state into their human resource functions. We also remind people of the long and successful track records of the companies that call North Carolina home, companies that have built their success in partnership with the warm and welcoming people of our state.

Bruns: When you speak to corporate leaders of companies that have recently announced projects, which factor do they most often cite as critical to their investment decision?

Skvarla: The key factor often comes down to North Carolina’s talented and skilled workers. Interestingly enough, in many ways it’s not just their specific skills, or the fact North Carolina workers have the nation’s best customized training programs to keep them sharp — it’s our can-do attitude that shines through. That’s an intangible companies notice about our workforce and mention often.”

Bruns: What do you view as the most innovative aspects of NC’s economic development portfolio today?

Skvarla: We have several innovative things underway that will make a real impact. To speed major site development for large industrial projects, we have reserved up to $35 million over the next three years to meet public infrastructure needs at qualifying locations, thanks to a collaboration between the GoldenLEAF Foundation and the Rural Infrastructure Authority, which is supported by my team at North Carolina Commerce.

Another initiative is our Innovation to Jobs program, which includes a Venture Multiplier fund of $40 million to support technology transfers. Finally, we’re fundamentally rethinking how we utilize the state’s assets to generate income, particularly our underutilized real estate assets. We call this Project Phoenix, and it will create thousands of construction, engineering, architecture, logistics and finance jobs over the coming years.

Reported by WorldJournal.com (Chinese Newspaper)

2016 Triangle Business Journal Residential Real Estate Award -- Highest # of transactions in 2015

陳海娜 獲房屋成交次數最多經紀獎

以促進北卡三角地區企業發展為宗旨的「三角商業雜誌」(Triangle Business Journal),每年從該地區將近9000名持有執照的房地產經紀人中,選出成交次數最多的房地產經紀人,於普雷斯頓鄉村俱樂部頒獎表揚。今年該項榮譽由來自香港的陳海娜(Hannah Chan)獲得,是該獎有史以來第一位亞裔女性得主。

陳海娜於11年前和丈夫陳志光,因為「想為孩子找個適合成長的環境」,從加州灣區遷居至北卡三角地區。她說,他們考慮的理由有三,一是房價便宜,在灣區只能買到古舊小屋的價錢,在該地卻能購得嶄新豪宅;二是三角科學園區的居民多是高級知識分子,是培育孩子的好地方;三是環境優美、氣候溫和,犯罪率又低,是「中產階級的天堂」。

決定定居而著手購屋的過程,激發了陳海娜對房地產的求知欲,開始研究進修,拿到一般和進階的證照,也從附屬他人公司到自己創業,如今旗下擁有七名英、華、粵、福州、印度語的經紀人。

陳海娜去年的成交次數是126件,平均一個月賣出十棟房子。她說,會有這麼高的成交量主要是靠口碑,顧客滿意了,自然把親友、同事介紹過來。

大學時主修會計、曾在知名的德勤(Deloitte)會計事務所工作的陳海娜說,她喜歡幫人賺錢,看到別人的投資有回報,自己就好開心。她認為自己不僅買賣房子,也是客戶的把關人,誠實分析房子的優缺點,為顧客的利益著想,也是商譽建立的根基。

陳海娜說,因著感恩的心,她去年在凱瑞鎮買了一座類似北京四合院的建築物,取名「北卡創業園」,廉價租給華裔專業人士,希望能幫助有志創業的華人在美闖出一片天地。現在園內已有法律、保險、商務諮詢、房屋檢查、貸款等華人所開設的服務業務。

Translation of the Chinese press article assisted by Google Translate:

“One of the main goals for the Triangle Business Journal (TBJ) is to promote the development of enterprises in the Triangle area of North Carolina.  To that goal, every year TBJ select the top producers among the 9000 licensed real estate professionals and teams in the Triangle area and recognize those individuals and teams at the award ceremony held at the Prestonwood Country Club in Cary. This year, Hannah Chan (Cary-Raleigh Realty, Inc.) originally from Hong Kong received the 2016 Triangle Business Journal Residential Real Estate Award (Individual) – Ranked by Transactions (# 1 in the number of transactions in 2015), the first Asian (Chinese) woman receiving such an honor.

Hannah and her husband moved from the Bay Area, CA to the Cary Raleigh area in North Carolina 11 years ago because “they wanted to find a nurturing and healthy environment to raise their daughter”. She says, “There are three reasons for selecting Cary Raleigh area as their home: first, affordable home prices – one can purchase a “mansion” in the Cary Raleigh area at a similar price for “an old cottage” in the Bay Area; second, the residents in the Research Triangle Park area are mostly professionals – family and education are their virtues; third, beautiful environment with plenty of trees and flowers, mild climate and low crime rate – “a paradise for the middle class”.

After deciding to settle in the Cary Raleigh area, Hannah started the home buying process. Through the process she was inspired to become the expert in real estate sales transactions and property investment by getting specialized designations and certifications through advanced studies such as the Graduate Realtor Institute and Triangle Relator Leadership Academy. She started her own company, and now has a team of seven including English, Chinese (Mandarin), Cantonese, Fuzhou and Hindi speaking real estate brokers.

Hannah Chan had 126 sales transactions in 2015, an average of 10 transactions per month. She says, “this high transaction rate is attributed to social media marketing, words of mouth, high client satisfaction, excellent client testimonials and more importantly referrals by friends and clients.”

Majoring in Accounting in college, she worked as an auditor in Deloitte accounting firm before turning her passion in the real estate business.  She says, “I like to help people make money in real estate sales and property investment, and am most satisfying by seeing  good return on investment in my client’s sales transaction and investment. I am not just someone who just handles the sales process but seeing myself as the gatekeeper for my clients – looking out for their best interests and providing them the honest analysis (advantages and disadvantages) and market insights to the property being considered -- the key foundation of our company brand reputation."

Hannah says, “with grateful and thankful heart in giving back to the Chinese community in the Triangle area, last year, she purchased the 901 Professional Center buildings in Cary with an architecture like an emperor courtyard in Beijing, named as “North Carolina Incubator”, to provide affordable office space to aspiring entrepreneurs, start ups and SMB (Small Medium Business) from the Chinese community in the Triangle area so they have an opportunity to build and nurture their fledging businesses into enterprises. Now there are many new businesses at the “North Carolina Incubator” including legal, insurance, mortgage, business consulting, venture capital, home inspection, mortgage and other services serving the Chinese community at large in the Triangle area.”

Hannah is hoping that this award could encourage other female Chinese/ Asian Americans in the Triangle area to strive for their very best, and their accomplishments can also be recognized by the business community at large in the Triangle area.

North Carolina Welcome Cui (Chinese Ambassador to the U.S.)

(The Chinese Embassy hosted a reception in Charlotte for the Chinese business and community leaders in North Carolina and South Carolina to celebrate the Chinese New Year.  This is the first such event hosted by the Chinese Embassy outside the Washington D.C.  Hannah Chan representing Cary-Raleigh Realty, Inc.  attended this reception and had the opportunity to meet with Ambassador Cui, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and North Carolina Secretary of Commerce John Skvarla.)

(中国驻美国大使崔天凯专程到北卡罗来纳州夏洛特市,举行中国驻美国大使馆2016年春节招待会。Hannah Chan 很荣幸和其他官员于2016年1月27日与中国大使崔天凯,州长帕特·麦克罗伊在北卡庆祝中国春节!!这是第一次中国大使馆在北卡罗来纳州举办庆祝活动.)

Some Remarks On North Carolina from Chinese Ambassador Cui: "He praised North Carolina for its universities, businesses and access to nature..."North Carolina, which has a dynamic Chinese community, is an important trading partner of China,” said Cui. “We look forward to more robust growth in trade, investment, tourism, education as well as people-to-people exchanges between China and North Carolina."

Excerpts from Charlotte Observer article: "For years, Chinese imports produced at lower wages competed with some of North Carolina’s primary industries, especially furniture and textiles. That cost jobs and led to wholesale closures of plants as American manufacturers couldn’t keep up with the lower prices.

But the economy has changed: China is no longer the low-wage “factory of the world” it once was, and as its economy grows more sophisticated and richer, Chinese investors are looking to the U.S. for opportunity. In 2013, Shangui International Holdings bought Smithfield, a meat producer with major hog operations in North Carolina.

Chinese textile company Keer opened a new, $218 million mill last year in Lancaster County, about 6 miles south of Ballantyne. In a reversal of the U.S. textile jobs-to-China trend, the mill will employ about 500 American workers.

In uptown, China Orient Summit Capital is financing a $122 million office tower under construction at 615 S. College St.

China is North Carolina’s third-largest export market, according to the U.S.-China Business Council, behind Canada and Mexico. In 2014, North Carolina’s exports to China totaled $2.7 billion, led by computers and electronics, chemicals and crop production goods."

Why People Relocating to Cary? What about Zip Code 27519?

November 20, 2015

An insightful article from TBJ: "Mapping Wealth in the Triangle"

Here are some excepts from the TBJ article about Cary and Zip Code 27519:

"After honing in on North Carolina as the place to begin rasing their family, Dan Ryder and his wife Eva eventually chose Cary. But coming from New Jersey, Eva had her suspicions.

“She jokingly asked me, ‘Why Cary? All the same people are going to be there,’” Dan says....

Relocating from Morristown, New Jersey, the Ryders confess they heard a lot about the area from friends who either moved here from the Northeastern U.S. or knew of people who did.

“But if you’re down here, you wanted a different life,” Dan says. “The hospitality here is better.”

The Ryders, both pharmacists, settled in the Cary ZIP code of 27519 with their two infant children. They chose the area for its suburban feel, its proximity to parks, including Thomas E. Brooks Park, and its commitment to keeping common areas neat and tidy. The average home price in the neighborhood they chose hovers just above $400,000....

“And we feel like our tax dollars go further here,” he says.

The area the Ryders are now a part of is the zenith of wealth in the Triangle area. According to data collected by The Business Journals, a parent publication of Triangle Business Journal, the Cary ZIP code of 27519 has the highest affluence score, based on a number of factors, including per capita income, median household income and median home value. Other neighborhoods in the wealthiest ZIP code include Cameron Pond, Highcroft Village and a portion of the Preston area.

In addition, the nationwide study looked at a number of other contributors to affluence...

Intellectual wealth
The area of Cary that ranks the highest not only possesses the highest median household income and the highest percentage of workers earning more than $100,000 per year, it also lays claim to high intellectual wealth. The area scored the highest percentage of adults with bachelor’s degrees, at nearly 74 percent, and one of the highest percentages of adults with advanced degrees, at 32 percent....

Retail influence
Where wealth lives, people spend. So where do people in the Triangle’s most affluent ZIP codes shop? In Cary’s 27519, residents are likely to make a stop at Cary Park Town Center – anchored by Harris Teeter and CVS – or Parkside Town Commons, which is home to the new Field & Stream outdoor recreational store and Golf Galaxy...."

Cary ranked # 6 America's Best Cities to Live by 24/7 Wall St.

November 5, 2015

The top five cities are Meridian, Idaho; Danbury, Connecticut; John's Creek, Georgia; Centennial, Colorado; and Eagan, Minnesota.

"6. Cary, North Carolina

> Population: 155,724
> Median home value: $298,800
> Poverty rate: 7.3%
> Pct. with at least a bachelor’s degree: 61.8%
> Amenities per 100,000 residents: 256.2

Cary is a wealthy suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina’s capital. Although the typical home in Cary costs $298,000 — $83,000 more than in Raleigh and almost twice the price of real estate in North Carolina as a whole — residents can afford it. The typical household in Cary makes $92,000 a year, almost twice the statewide median household income. Moreover, when adjusted for the city’s low cost of living, that figure increases by about $4,000.

Cary has one of the most educated populations nationwide — nearly 62% of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree. The nearby Research Triangle Park (RTP), a corporate research center located between UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University, and NC State, employs much of Cary’s qualified workforce.

讓更多的人了解北卡、到北卡創業

——訪Cary-Raleigh Realty, Inc. 房地產投資公司創辦人Hannah Chan

Hannah Chan是北卡三角區一位事業有成的女企業家,房地產千萬經紀人,她所擁有的Cary Raleigh Realty公司,有六位全職員工;她還購買了一幢商業樓,裝修後準備出租給華人創辦的公司
【大紀元2015年06月26日訊】(大紀元記者謝漫雪北卡報導)在很多美國人的眼裡,北卡是一界鄉下。十年前,當Hannah Chan隨先生Leo從硅谷搬遷到北卡來的時候,搬家公司的人對她說:「哦,北卡,你不需要電視,北卡沒有電視。」一頭霧水的Hannah,在剛搬遷到北卡三角區時,的確有些惶惑和不知所措……

  
然而十年後的今天,Hannah Chan已成為北卡三角區一位事業有成的女企業家,開拓出了自己的一片天地,並深深地愛上了「沒有電視的」北卡。她說:「甚麼也不能讓我離開這裡了。我退休後就住在這兒。」
  
做為房地產的千萬經紀人,在三角區7000多名房地產經紀人中,2013年Hannah的過戶成交量排在第18位,2014年排在第17位。她所擁有的Cary Raleigh Realty公司,又名北卡三角房地產投資公司,目前有六位全職員工;近期她在Cary市區還購買了一幢商業樓,裝修後準備出租給華人創辦的公司,「加州的很多商業中心都是中文字,我希望我們這裡也有這樣類似的創業的地方。」 她希望能引領更多的華人到北卡三角區發展、創業. 「很多人還不了解北卡,這個地方有很多的潛力,我從加州搬過來,看到人與人之間的關係很親密、熱情,大家見面不認識都打招呼。這邊還有4萬多中國人,不管你是甚麼背景,這個社區很包容,互相照顧。我希望更多的商家、企業能看到這邊的機會,到這邊發展、創業。這裡只要好好地去做,按照規矩去做,不需要惡性的競爭,就能做好.」

己若不慾 勿施於人

「在加州我沒有做過房地產,那時已經過熱了。房地產經紀人到處都是。清潔工、出租車司機都可能是。我覺的美國夢應該是大房、豪車,在加州一個小黑屋就要買100萬,我自己都不會去住,怎麼叫其他人去買。這純粹就是為了做而去做。」
  
沒有任何房地產經驗的Hannah來到北卡後,看到北卡的環境這麼好,房價比加州便宜了一半,人們的工資又很高,對於從加州來的她,頓時感到手頭寬裕了很多,在其他人還沒想到投資買房以前,她已經捷足先登。「我加州的朋友都在看著我,我從來沒有叫他們過來買,很多時候你不講人家看你做,比你到處去講卻不做更讓人信服。他們看著我在這邊買,投資賺錢,這些在網上都可以查到。他們就覺得你們那個地方很好哦,他們就主動來找我。他們試了一個賺到錢,又買一個又賺到,他們就會很有信心。」
  
做房地產的工作,Hannah有個信條,就是「心安」。「我自己會買、會做的才會叫你去做,我自己不做的,我也不會叫你去做,這樣晚上才能睡的安穩。做人就是要這種平安。我是一個基督徒,我自己是老闆,但我的老闆(上帝)時時都在看著我,不是說關上門後就沒人知道。」
  
做房地產要面對很多的誘惑。Hannah說,有一次她的一個租客為了讓小孩上大學繳州內學費,問Hannah能不能把他的租約寫到兩年前,並承諾給Hannah好處。「我看著他,就沒有想過還有這樣的事情。」雖然可以為對方省很多學費,但Hannah最後還是跟他說:「我真的沒有辦法這樣做。這不是說我不想幫你……」Hannah 說,「這種事情很多,方方面面都可能出現,大家為了幾千塊錢就這樣做……」很多時候Hannah只有說:「謝謝你,這個offer太好了,但是我們沒有辦法接受。」
「對我來說,我們就是用最「笨」的辦法去做我們的工作,但是把它做好。我不看重我能做多少個房,500個、1000個房,但我希望我的客戶在我的幫助下都能賺到錢,我也希望他們覺得好可以幫我推薦,但他們覺得不好我寧可不做。如果他們覺得有其他人能幫到他們,可以去找其他人。每個找到我的人,我覺得自己有一個責任——我要幫到我的客戶。我的客戶相信我,我可以幫他賺錢。我的客戶能賺錢我也很開心。」

關注服務質量

Hannah強調,好的服務質量就要有專業的工作人員來服務顧客。「來找我們公司,這樣的客戶都是對我們有一定期望的。我們很多的客戶是外州來的,對當地不了解,他們需要的服務是很多的。這個服務的質量就一定要提高上去。」
  
Hannah認為,一個正式的辦公室是服務必備的。所以,她在2013年買下了目前在凱瑞市中心的辦公室。「如果是做出租管理的,很多客戶是來辦公室申請、繳費、交納租金等等,他們要求你不可以只有一個「virtual office」。我的大部分房東都是中國客戶,租客都是老美,在外面打電話、簽租約是不可能的。你做甚麼樣的工作就應該提供相應的條件設施,不能因為對自己要求低,也希望客戶的要求低。不做就不做,做就要做到位。我覺得這是中國人一個形象問題。」
  
其次,Hannah 要求自己的團隊為顧客提供專業的服務水準。「我平時非常忙,員工也很忙,有空的時候我們就開會,討論怎樣把事情做得更好,怎麼樣提高工作的流程。我們鑰匙有幾百套,這麼多的文件,看房、找租客、簽約,這麼多的事情就要求一定有一個團隊去完成,這不是一個人能顧的過來的。所以我要求的是全職的工作人員,我們要的是專業的工作人員,我們客戶都是很嚴肅的投資者,他們需要最好的服務,他們需要人幫他們找到更好的投資,所以我們就是房地產的投資顧問,我們建立的是財富。」
  
GRI (The Graduate, REALTOR Institute) 是房地產專職人員獲得的碩士學位認證,是提供高水平專業服務的標誌。「在三角區只有我一個人拿到GRI,我不單是做房地產,就是說我要幫客戶爭取最多的利益,無論是價錢、投資、回報等。」 Hannah說。
  
前幾年經濟大蕭條時,有許多法拍房上市,Hannah還特意去考了CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) 執照。「我們有一個專業的管理團隊,我們每個人都在這個領域提升自己,我們外地的客戶買了投資房,他們需要有人在這邊幫助照看,所以買了房以後事情也很多。我們公司還購買了專業的軟件來方便客戶,各種軟件的維護費每月都上千。我們24小時為客戶服務,租戶在網上就可以預訂看房的時間。」

讓更多人到北卡投資、創業

「我的很多客戶都是加州、新澤西過來的。他們在那裏賺的錢在那邊已經買不到甚麼好房子,在這邊房子便宜,而且還是全新的,租金又可以付房貸。亞裔人數學比較好,一算就知道了。」
  
Hannah是會計專業畢業,出來後曾在大審計公司工作,對數字非常敏感。她說:「北卡這邊是中產階層的天堂,生活的質量非常高,房地產稅比其它地方都低,從加州過來一下就感到工資翻了兩倍。很大的落差。本地人太幸福了!我自己很清楚,十年前加州的油價就比這邊貴,從最貴的城市到這裡,哇,東西真是便宜的不得了。」 「我們和加州的工資差距不是很大,可能10%,但房價差了70%。」
  
現在Hannah的很多客戶搬到加州,回頭告訴她:「Hannah,我要回來投資。」“去了那邊以後更感到要回來,暫時不能回來的,投資也要投回來。」 Hannah說。
  
據Hannah介紹,北卡是中國在美國投資的第四大州,投資項目包括企業、房地產,投資金額僅次於加州、紐約、德州。Hannah公司的網頁caryraleighrealty.com每天都給客戶提供相關的投資信息。她說:「這邊的人工資都很高,很捨得消費、吃,各種設施都很好,所以我們需要把這個地方告訴更多的人,讓他們來這裡創業。我們這裡股票的市贏率,就是P/E ratio,絕對是最低的,還沒有漲。我們現在這邊缺的只是人口,只要這邊的人口一上來,這個房價就會漲。」
  
「買房和股票不一樣,股票今天賺了明天有可能虧,買房就像買磚頭,今天買了明天顧客幫你付房貸,你的租金按照通貨膨脹去漲,所有與房子有關的都可以抵稅。」Hannah認為,「有錢人不但會賺錢,還要會投資,錢不是省出來的。不過要根據個人的收入和負債比例來把握。」她說: 「北卡這塊餅很大,這裡需要更多的人來。我希望有更多的房地產經紀人把更多的人帶到這裡。為甚麼要去加州投資?那邊八、九十萬的房子我們這邊二、三十萬就能買到。」
  
最後,Hannah說:「我的這個公司僱用了很多員工,創造了很多的工作機會,我希望將來可以請更多的人。讓更多的年輕人在這邊有機會發展,我也希望我們華人在這邊有更多的發展,特別是中、小企業的創業,讓當地看到我們華人給這裡帶來的經濟效益。」

访北卡房地产经纪人陈海娜 

Jun 19, 2015 (CHINA STAR WEEKLY)

分享: 陈海娜在她的办公室接受采访。


  【侨报特约记者王云霏/尹彬报道】北卡三角房地产投资(Cary Raleigh Realty)的责任经纪人陈海娜(Hannah Chan)是一位在三角区靠自己的打拼,开创出一片天地的华人,也是一位与众不同的房地产经纪人。本期的人物专访就由她做主角。


发展房地产事业 不做“皮包公司”

  陈海娜的房产公司是一所别墅样的小房子,位于市中心附近,里面除了办公室和会议室以外,还有几间房间的装修模板,周围是市政府正在规划兴建的商业区。她兴致勃勃地给记者展示了由卡里市(Cary)市长参与的2012年办公室楼初建时的剪彩照片。她说:“从此以后,华人在市中心也有了我们自己的聚集点!”
  坐在办公桌前,陈海娜说:“从事房地产事业,很多人都是挎著一个皮包走天下,但我认为需要有一个自己的办公室,因为你的资料随时都要等待客户审查,而且客户要能够每天都找得到你,这样他们才能够放心。并且,房子跟人的联系很紧密,就是你的家。房子是人生最大的投资,不仅要住得开心,不住的时候出售还可以增值赚钱。”
  陈海娜是会计出身,2006年毕业以后曾经从事会计职业,后来跟随其先生Leo到加州生活。如今,陈海娜一家人在北卡州生活,她有一个10岁的女儿。她表示,北卡很适合中产阶级生活,不仅低税而且环境好。陈海娜自2009年开办公司以来,现在已经建立了由6人组成的专业团队,提供会计、售后、相关法律咨询与联系等多方面服务。她相信口碑的力量,相信自己一步一步走来,人们会看到自己做的事情,不仅是在经营房产,更是诚心在为客户的生活水平和长远打算服务。例如,她看房子很重要的一条,不仅是房子现在的价值,更是若干年后的价值,以及能不能够卖得出、卖得好。

事业与信仰 两者兼顾

  谈起从事房地产经纪这些年印象深刻的故事,陈海娜回忆说,自己曾经遇到过一对从来自德州的夫妇。他们曾和陈海娜通电话讲到自己已经看好一套房子,明天去签,并希望她能帮忙看一下。陈海娜看后发现房子有硬伤:房子后院有一个大坡,对这对年纪已经不轻的夫妇来讲,搞不好走三步就会跌下去,并且,这套房子由于地势问题,再出手就很难了。
  陈海娜决定实话告诉这对夫妇,不建议他们购买此房,对方听后很不高兴。陈海娜说道:“做这样的事情,别人会觉得你很笨,但至少自己可以睡一个安心觉。”身为基督徒的她表示,因自己本身性格刚直,本不适合做房地产生意,但因承蒙神的祝福,客户喜欢自己的坦白,并且非常感谢神多年的恩典。
  陈海娜一家都是基督徒,除了在事业上,陈海娜在对女儿的教育方面也传承了教会的文化。对于她来讲,每个礼拜天早上没有工作的事情,要先参加敬拜聚会,把这些时间给神。“只靠自己很辛苦,需要这样的时间安静,反省。”
  在问到对刚刚有些积蓄的年轻人是否建议投资房产时,陈海娜说,北卡的房子相比全美相对便宜,特别是比加州,便宜一半以上,而且还具有增值的潜力。一座10万左右的房子,在首付后3到4年就能还掉本金的一部分(如2万),之后再卖出,因为房子升值,还能够赚到钱,比起其他投资品种稳当得多。因此,如果租住的房子一年要花1.2万以上房租,那倒不如分期买所房子,自己住同时收租金,最后卖出,长远来看十分划算。也因此,在看房子是否容易卖得出手成为很重要的原则。


扩大华人影响力 你我有责

  陈海娜道出自己的另一桩心愿,就是借著自己事业的影响力能够在社区里塑造华人的形象。她曾经应邀参加一个参议员的筹款活动,并表示,希望下一步不仅仅是支持,而是参与。她希望可以通过自己的事业体现身为华人的价值,在华人受到不公平待遇时,能够通过美国主流社会认可的方式与对方谈判和解决,而不是一味地摆出华人受到不公待遇的姿态,那样反而不被美国人欣赏。一个例子是陈海娜曾经帮助顾客通过反覆用邮件交流的方式来与房主进行沟通,最终使问题得到了圆满解决,双方都很开心。也因为这半个“文化大使”的身份,使得带孩子来北卡三角地区上学的父母们,在学校要求填的Emergency Contact里都放陈海娜的名字,也是对她沟通能力的一种很好的信任。


  “我们应该走入每一位顾客的生活,成为他们生活品质中不可或缺的一部分。”陈海娜总结道。

June 9, 2015  Raleigh #1 Rental Real Estate Investment

Excerpts from the TBJ article:

"Raleigh is currently the best market for rental real estate investment in the Southeastern U.S. and the sixth best market in the country as a whole, according to a recent report from All Property Management."

"Raleigh’s claim to the top ranking is largely due to high 7.63 percent year-over-year appreciation in median rental prices, almost three times the national average rental appreciation of 2.71 percent, according to the report.
An influx of residents has led to Raleigh's moderately low vacancy rate of 4.80 percent. A 5.78 percent appreciation in property values adds to its appeal, the report states.
The city’s job growth rate of 3.49 percent was also one of the best in the country in the first quarter of 2015.
All Property Management predicts that Raleigh's future job growth will be the fifth best in the U.S. in the coming quarter."
