In GENERAL DISCUSSION
Estate Agents, Real Estate Agents, Realtors, Property Vendors call them what you will, it means the same, it just depends where you come from. As I'm British, I'll use the term 'Estate Agents' as it's most familiar to me. Most Estate Agents are best known for helping to buy and sell your homes, but nowadays most offer a range of 'related' services including purchase, sales, lease, mortgages etc on all types of properties. There are those too that often double as letting agencies, more of which will be explained later. If you're in business they can find you an office, if you're a landlord they can find you a tenant, if you're a tenant they can find you a landlord, and if you're a builder they can find you a plot of land or an unfinished project. It's my understanding that the Estate Agents of Thailand are similar in practice to those elsewhere in the world. With such a useful one-stop-shop for all your property related business, why is it then that Estate Agents generally have a bad reputation? Well, it's probably related to the nature of the job. To be fair, they're quite often stuck in the middle dealing with the thankless tasks of buying, selling, and negotiating etc. It must be a nightmare at Escorts near me times trying to keep all parties happy. When things don't go according to plan, the buyers, sellers, tenants, and contractors etc have to vent their frustrations out somewhere and the obvious choice is on the guys that are being paid to make the job as quick and as hassle free as possible. It's quite a juggling act! Another one of the problems with this business and its reputation is this: When times are good, the market is "confident", and there are more buyers than sellers, and more tenants than landlords, some Estate Agents may treat you badly. By that I mean things like not returning your calls or sending you the promised information and other such upsetting and thoughtless inactions. However, when the market slows down, the good ones' will stand out in a crowd and be a model of cooperation at your disposal......................Sir! Sometimes it's extremely difficult to keep serene in Thailand as the pace of business here is generally a lot less hurried than that in western countries. Intolerance, impatience and quick tempered threats will only hinder, never help, your situation whatever it happens to be. It's always a good idea to not take deadlines and over optimistic assurances too literally and to go with the flow as much as possible. This doesn't mean sit back and allow for any Agent to disrespect your particular job, it simply means adjust to the ways of operating, allow for hurdles and hiccups along the way, and the whole process will seem a lot smoother. As with any humans, treat them positively, with respect, and they're likely to respond more favorably to your case. Research has shown that buying and selling property, or moving home are perhaps among the most stressful things people are likely to encounter in their life time. It's not surprising then that a major concern with many folk is how to select an agent that's considered reputable? The bottom line is that most are but just as in any other business a very small minority is not. This isn't a problem pertaining only to Thailand either. The best way to find a good one (if you're locally based) is listen to personal recommendations from friends, work colleagues and neighbours. Word of mouth recommendations are by far the most trustworthy in the long run, but be slightly wary of people recommending family members or close friends who happen to be in the business. A lot of high-end rentals are arranged through Estate Agents too, some mid priced but very little if none at all, in the low end vacancies. One assumes this is purely down to little or no profit on the latter. This then beggars the question: Do real-estate agents have their clients' best interests at heart? The answer to this has to be yes, if you fit comfortably into their definition of a 'client'. I personally used the services of an Estate Agent when I first moved here. I was looking to rent an apartment in the 50,000 THB/Mo. price range. I was ushered into the back of a nice motor, accompanied by an attractive young escort, and driven around Bangkok's central area for a few hours as she presented me with one potential home after another. Nothing was too much trouble and I found the service invaluable and very time saving. This also gave me a good insight on what was available for that kind of money on which a whole new chapter could be written. However, stick your head in the door and tell them you're looking for a pad around the 5,000 Baht a month range and see how you get on! Although they won't tell you to sod off, I don't think the service above will apply either. This is one of the reasons the Mr. Roomfinder project was started as we felt there needed to be a free central place available for seeking out 'all' property types at 'all' budget levels.

As summer nights lengthen into autumn, the forests of the Catskill mountains in upstate New York fill with magical, mystical, medicinal mushrooms. "Toadstool" is a quaint name for the many mushrooms that spring forth between rains, while "fungi" is the more technical term. Fungi are plants, but plants without flowers or roots or chlorophyll (which makes plants green). Strange shapes (some quite sexually suggestive), the ability to grow (and glow) in the dark, and psychedelic colors make mushrooms an obvious addition to any witch's stew. But you will want some other reasons to make mushrooms a steady part of your diet. Is outwitting cancer a good enough reason? It's true. All edible fungi - including those ordinary white button mushrooms sold in supermarkets - are capable of preventing and reversing cancerous cellular changes. We aren't exactly sure why. Perhaps it's because fungi search out, concentrate, and share with us the trace minerals we need to build powerful, healthy immune systems. Or perhaps it's because of their wealth of polysaccharides - interesting complex sugars that appear to be all round health-promoters. It could be because mushrooms are excellent sources of protein and B vitamins with few calories and no sodium. Or we could single out the anti-cancer, anti-tumor, and anti-bacterial compounds found in the stalk, caps, gills, and even the underground structures (mycelia) of every edible mushroom. Be sure to cook your mushrooms though; avoid eating them raw. Scientists at the University of Nebraska Medical School found that mice who ate unlimited amounts of raw mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus) developed, over the course of their lifetimes, significantly more malignant tumors than a control group. Everywhere I go in August and September - whether walking barefoot on vibrant green mosses or stepping lightly across the deeply-scented fallen pine and hemlock needles; whether climbing rocky outcrops festooned with ferny whiskers or skirting swamps humming with mosquitoes; whether following the muddy bank of a meandering stream or balancing on old stone walls inhaling the scent of righteous rot Magicmushroom uk - I am on the lookout for my fungi friends. My woods are especially generous to me withchanterelles, beautiful cornucopia-shaped mushrooms with a delectable taste. I find both the delicious little black ones - jokingly known as "trumpet of death" due to their eerie coloration - and the very tasty and much bigger orange ones. Sometimes we return home naked from our mushrooms walks - if we find more 'shrooms than we have bags for, we have to use our shirts and pants as carriers to help haul dinner home. The bright orange tops and sulfur yellow undersides of sulphur shelf mushrooms (Polyporus sulphuroides) are easy to spot in the late summer forest. Growing only on recently-dead oaks, these overlapping shelves make a great-tasting immune-enhancing addition to dinner. I have harvested the "chicken of the woods" in oak forests around the world. In the Czech Republic, I saw a particularly large example as we drove a country lane. Stopping, I found a portion of it had been harvested. I took only a share, being careful to leave lots for other mushroom lovers who might come down the lane after me. You don't have to live in the woods and find your own mushrooms to enjoy their health-giving benefits. You can buy them: fresh or dried for use in cooking and medicine; and tinctured or powdered as well. Look for chanterelles, cepes, enoki, oyster mushrooms, portobellos, maitake, reishii, shiitake, chaga, and many other exotic and medicinal mushrooms in health food stores, supermarkets, specialty stores, and Oriental markets. Maitake(Grifolia frondosa) is more effective than any other fungi ever tested at inhibiting tumor growth. It is very effective when taken orally, whether by lab rats or humans dealing with cancer. The fruiting body of the maitake resembles the tail feathers of a small brown chicken, hence its popular name: "Hen of the Woods". If you buy maitake in pill form, be sure to get the fruiting body, not the mycelium. Reishii (Ganoderma lucidum) is one of the most respected immune tonics in the world. Reishii is adaptogenic, revitalizing, and regenerative, especially to the liver. Even occasional use builds powerful immunity and reduces the risk of cancer. In clinical studies, use of reishii increased T-cell and alpha interferon production, shrank and eliminated tumors, and improved the quality of life for terminal patients. Reishii and shiitake are great partners, the effects of one enhancing the effects of the other. Reishii is best taken as a tincture, 20-40 drops, 3 times daily. Shiitake(Lentinus edodes) is highly medicinal and tastes good enough to eat in quantity. I go to an oriental market and buy the big, big, big bag of dried shiitake mushrooms for a fraction of what I would pay for them in a health food store. To use, I just rehydrate them by pouring boiling water over them or by dropping pieces into soups. Those who make shiitake a regular part of their diets increase their production of cancer-fighting alpha interferon, reduce inflammation throughout their bodies, prolong their lives, and improve their ability to produce and utilize vitamin D. Chaga(Inonotus obliquus) is a rather ugly and intensely hard fungi found on birch trees. Baba Yaga and other Russian herbalists favor it as an immune nourisher, cancer preventive, and an aid to those dealing with melanomas. Mushrooms are not just for food and medicine; they are renowned for their ability to alter our perceptions of reality. Psychoactive psilocybin mushrooms were used by the famous shaman/healer Maria Sabina in Mexico. The red-capped mushroom with white dots usually drawn next to the witch's house is the mind-altering Amanita muscaria, sometimes called manna, and widely used in Siberian shamanic rites. Whether you use fungi to make a mushroom soup or as a remedy for someone dealing with cancer, whether you stir them up in a witch's cauldron of spiraling power or sew them into a spirit bag, mushrooms offer magic and mystery, good health and good cheer.
