Brendan King (00:00): How about that Monday nightfootball game with the Raiders. And we are here for The Unnamed Show.
Hey, what's going on everybody?It's Brendan King from the Brendan King Group at Simply Vegas. And this isepisode 12 of The Unnamed Show.
Caroline Lauzon (00:34): Woo hoo, yeah.
Brendan King (00:36): What's going on, I'm joinedhere today by Denise Tipton.
Denise Tipton (00:39): Hello Brendan.
Brendan King (00:40): Ooh, what's going on Denise?And Caroline Lauzon.
Caroline Lauzon (00:42): Bonjour.
Brendan King (00:43): What's up? So, we have a ton ofinformation of course as always, typically we always start with the Aviatorstexts, but unfortunately we're out of tickets. We've given away all our ticketsthis year, so instead of texting Aviators, text VIP to 702-553-1955, 702-19, ohmy gosh, 702-553-1955 text VIP. That's going to put you on our text list foreverything from dining, entertainment, market update. It'll put you on all thelists and you can narrow down what you want or don't want. And you'll get atext every time we do something special. It's our own little world, our ownlittle community where you can get all sorts of great information on Vegas.
Brendan King (01:25): And from that, of course, wewere at the Aviators game the other day on Tuesday, we went with our clientsDan and Terry, actually had a really great time. The Aviators did get theirbutts kicked that night, unfortunately.
Caroline Lauzon (01:40): Ouch.
Brendan King (01:41): And we were hoping to see KhrisDavis smash a few balls, but we didn't realize Khris is actually back to theOakland Athletics, so he made it back to the majors.
Denise Tipton (01:50): The big show.
Brendan King (01:51): The big show. I still want tosay big dance.
Denise Tipton (01:53): No, big show, big show.
Brendan King (01:53): Like Jack kept saying on theother episodes. But yeah, he made it back to the majors, which is amazing. Hewent two for three the other night, first game back, no home runs yet. SoKhrush, what do they call him, Khris Khrush? Khris Khrush is not crushing ityet.
Denise Tipton (02:08): He will.
Brendan King (02:09): But he's two for three, whichis awesome. Three and a half games back the Athletics are from actually makingthe playoffs, so hopefully Khris will be a big help with that. Also, holy cow,I don't know if anybody saw the Monday night football game, if you didn'tyou're under a rock, because it was incredible. Insane, dramatic overtime win,the whole stadium was full. Honestly, this was right before they had actuallythought, they thought they won, the whole field filled up with fans and theyhad to kick everybody off. And the game wasn't over yet, unfortunately his kneehit the field, he didn't actually score.
Brendan King (02:47): Ah, I can't even explain it,the game was incredible, especially overtime, it was just a back and forthgame. Raiders, first home game, full stadium. I have to admit I'm not a jealousperson, but I had friends that posted photos from that night, and it was justan incredible game. My kids thought something was wrong with me, because I wasliterally in the living room like, "Oh, no. Oh God. Yeah, yeah,yeah." That was crazy. But if you saw it, you know what I'm talking about?I know Caroline missed the game and I think you did too didn't you?
Denise Tipton (03:21): I did. I was really bummed.
Brendan King (03:22): Aah. I'm going to have tosomehow find a recording and send it to you. It literally was the most amazingfootball game I've seen in a long time. It was actually the first overtime gameon Monday night football since the 70's. And don't forget, next week theRaiders play the Steelers, September 19th at 1:00 PM.
Caroline Lauzon (03:40): I won't miss that one.
Brendan King (03:40): Not at home, unfortunately.
Denise Tipton (03:42): So, who are you taking?
Brendan King (03:44): Who am I taking? Let me think,the Raiders.
Denise Tipton (03:47): The Raiders.
David (03:49): Good answer, good answer.
Brendan King (03:50): Long, hard thought. But yeah,hopefully this week is like last week. If that's the case, this could beanother golden Knights run like their first season. You know, it would be ahuge change from the actual standings or where they're supposed to be. But hey,if they play anything like Monday, I think they could have a great, greatseason. So we'll see.
Caroline Lauzon (04:10): What a nice start of theseason.
Brendan King (04:11): Oh my God. It was incredible.
Caroline Lauzon (04:12): Very exciting.
Brendan King (04:13): It was crazy. Like literally mykids were like, "Dad, what's wrong with you?" And I was like, yaah.
Denise Tipton (04:18): I'm having a stroke.
Brendan King (04:20): But, moving on from there,Caroline, you've got something special going on in the past week.
Caroline Lauzon (04:27): Yes, we had quite a week at3915 Belhaven Street. It was quite busy, the amount of traffic we got on thislisting was insane.
Brendan King (04:38): How many showings did you have?
Caroline Lauzon (04:39): Oh, I stopped counting, but wehad two open houses with probably over 30 people just from the open house. Butthen we also had I think like 25 scheduled showings as well. We had over ten-
Brendan King (04:52): And I think a hundred differentcalls.
Caroline Lauzon (04:53): Yes, and still getting textsand calls, even though we've just finally accepted an offer, an incredible,beautiful offer on this house. But yeah, we had over 10 offers that were very,very competitive. And then one of them stood out and the lucky buyer's agentwas actually on our team, Ms. Denise.
Brendan King (05:15): Literally, we had nine offers,we were already happy with the offers we had.
Caroline Lauzon (05:18): Very.
Brendan King (05:18): And then Denise's client camein.
Denise Tipton (05:21): Our lovely client.
Brendan King (05:22): From Hong Kong.
Denise Tipton (05:23): Yes.
Brendan King (05:23): And he was like, "I'll dothis."

Brendan King (06:31): I wonder where that name isfrom?
Denise Tipton (06:33): I don't know, but Auric soundslike audio, right? So there's music, anyways. So there's going to be 324 unitsdown there.
Caroline Lauzon (06:41): It's beautiful.
Brendan King (06:41): So cool.
Denise Tipton (06:41): They're already 30% leased outand prices start at $1,499, so $1,500.
Caroline Lauzon (06:47): That's pretty reasonable.
Denise Tipton (06:48): Yeah it's gorgeous, right?
Brendan King (06:50): Such a like New York kind ofart deco blend, right?
Denise Tipton (06:53): Kind of modern industrial, ifyou will.
Caroline Lauzon (06:55): You can walk to places fromthere.
Denise Tipton (06:56): Oh yeah, it's going to be rightacross from Symphony Park.
Caroline Lauzon (06:57): Like the location's justperfect.
Denise Tipton (06:59): And right across the streetfrom World Market Center. So folks, if you don't know about that, that is asuper awesome, huge, gigantic building and if you drive on the 95-
Brendan King (07:06): I have to admit I've never beenthere.
Denise Tipton (07:08): Right, exactly, and you'relike, "What is that giant thing?"
Caroline Lauzon (07:10): It's massive.
Denise Tipton (07:10): It is a furniture showcase fordesigners, so obviously you need a lot of rooms, so that's why it's so big. AndI believe it's open to the public on some days. So if you love furniture, ifyou're looking for ideas and inspiration, definitely go check it out, it's likestunning. You might want to leave your checkbook at home though, becausecompulsive.
Brendan King (07:27): Yeah. And each differentdesigners, different...
Denise Tipton (07:30): Looks, styles.
Brendan King (07:31): ... different couch company,furniture companies, all rent space.
Denise Tipton (07:35): Lighting.
Brendan King (07:35): It's kind of like a...
Denise Tipton (07:36): It's like an immovable...
Caroline Lauzon (07:37): It's like a furniture show, butpermanent.
Denise Tipton (07:43): Design showroom.
Caroline Lauzon (07:43): But permanent, exactly.
Denise Tipton (07:45): Yeah, exactly, exactly.
Brendan King (07:46): Thank you, I couldn't think ofthe word. Yeah, and it literally has everything. It's huge, that building islike...
Caroline Lauzon (07:50): Yeah, it's super massive.
Denise Tipton (07:51):It's six stories.
Brendan King (07:52): Oh my God, see I need to go, Ihave no excuse.
Denise Tipton (07:54): You've got to go, yeah.
Caroline Lauzon (07:55): And it's right next to TheOutlet, the Smith Center, there's so many things right around that area.
Denise Tipton (07:59): Top pricing on that is going tobe $3,100 for a two bedroom, two bath. And again, it's already 30% leased out.It's going to be completed in July of next year. So, if you're looking for luxury,you're looking for apartment living, you're looking for downtown, boom, AuricSymphony Park.
Caroline Lauzon (08:15): And affordable too, it seemslike.
Brendan King (08:16): Yeah. Especially for Downtownand the size of what you get. And then plus, it's like you were saying, you canliterally walk to those things right there, but then if you go under the bridgeyou're in Downtown, like you've got everything and they've done such a greatjob on that. As far as like... Sorry, somebody literally just walked in as I'mspeaking. As far as restaurants and things like that, they've added so manydifferent restaurants in the area Downtown. Actually, another thing that we'verecently added is the VIP text, like I mentioned before. So of course, once again,text VIP to 702-553-1955, don't forget 702-553-1955.
Brendan King (09:03): So, I was actually reading oneof the magazines I love to read, which is Outside Magazine. It's about likeoutdoor sports and camping and all that kind of stuff. And there was a littlesection about cities for the outdoors, and I'm reading it and I'm like,"Holy cow, what's in there, North Las Vegas."
Caroline Lauzon (09:21): Woo hoo.
Brendan King (09:24): Funny story is, I was readingAdventure Magazine 11 years ago and Las Vegas was in there, and that's actuallyone of the things that got me to move here.
Denise Tipton (09:33): Oh, interesting.
Caroline Lauzon (09:35): That's just so awesome.
Brendan King (09:35): Yeah. So yeah, the other day Iwas reading Outside Magazine. So they chose it for many different reasons,affordability, access to the outdoors, sports.
Denise Tipton (09:43): Parks.
Brendan King (09:44): Parks. Outdoor space.
Caroline Lauzon (09:46): There is so much to do outdoorsin the Las Vegas area. It's insane. I feel like people don't realize it.
Brendan King (09:50): Yeah. One of the greatest rockclimbers in the world lives in Summerlin, or in Peccole actually.
Caroline Lauzon (09:56): Yes, my favorite.
Brendan King (09:57): One of your favoriteneighborhoods. And he came here specifically because the access to rockclimbing, people are like, "What, rock climbing?"
Denise Tipton (10:05): Yeah, Red Rock.
Brendan King (10:06): But Red Rock Canyon is actuallyone of the largest sport climbing areas in the entire world. But yeah, I wasvery happy to see our town in that article. And the nice thing is there's tonsof miles of mountain bike trails. We have hiking, we have...
Caroline Lauzon (10:20): Hiking, mountain biking.
Brendan King (10:21): ... Mount Charleston.
Caroline Lauzon (10:22): The lake. You know you cankayak, stand up paddle board, boat, there's so much to do. And yeah, MountCharleston's right there. Yeah, really. There's a lot of outdoor stuff to do,and yeah it gets hot, but it's still beautiful weather year round.
Denise Tipton (10:40): Oh, it's only hot three monthsof the year, it's no big deal.
Brendan King (10:40): Yeah. And you know what, I'mfrom the east coast, I'm from the New York area and there's more parks andtrails here than where I grew up, which is crazy to me.
Denise Tipton (10:45): That is amazing, I didn't knowthat.
Brendan King (10:47): Yeah. Oh God yeah, by far.Another thing I was reading, I was actually randomly I think this has popped upall over the news, and I liked that they call him the Diapers.com guy. But thereason they call them that is because he developed diapers.com and he sold itfor boatloads of money and a couple other businesses. He wants to start autopian megalopolis. And it's called, what was the name of the town?
Denise Tipton (11:13): Tessala, or something likethat. Telosus?
Caroline Lauzon (11:14): Tessalos?
Brendan King (11:16): I forget name of the town, butthe articles really interesting. So this guy wants to spend a couple of billiondollars and create a town in the middle of the desert, and Nevada's one of theareas up for it. He's just feels like there's so much land in the country thatcould be used to form these small utopian cities that are self-sufficient.
Caroline Lauzon (11:35): Self-sufficient yeah, that'spretty cool.
Brendan King (11:36): And create their own energy.And you know, I think it's a little bit of a just idea at the moment, but heyif anything comes of it, it could be very cool.
Caroline Lauzon (11:47): Absolutely.
Brendan King (11:48): Some of these renderings are pretty amazing,even just check it out online, there's a lot of cool information about it.
Caroline Lauzon (11:54): I'm very curious about it,that's very cool.
Brendan King (11:55): Hey, if it actually happens, itcould be a fun place.
Caroline Lauzon (11:58): Absolutely.
Brendan King (11:59): Moving on from that. HeyDenise, did you win this week?
Denise Tipton (12:03): Oh my gosh, I wish I wouldhave. So a very lucky local, they went down to one of our local casinos here onthe east side of town. It's called The Cannery, and they won a million dollarjackpot.
Brendan King (12:13): And did they spend thousands ofdollars.
Denise Tipton (12:15):
No, they didn't. How much do youthink they spent, how much do you think they put in?
Brendan King (12:17): $12?
Denise Tipton (12:18): Caroline, how much did they putin? Give me a guess?
Caroline Lauzon (12:21): $20.
Denise Tipton (12:21): Okay. They put in $3.75.
Caroline Lauzon (12:23): Oh my god.
Brendan King (12:24): So, that's the return of...
Denise Tipton (12:28): It's a heck of a return.
Caroline Lauzon (12:29): Oh my goodness.
Denise Tipton (12:31): I wish it would have been me, Iwish it would have been any one of our coworkers or even... anyways, they livehere, so that's fantastic. So, that is so exciting.
Caroline Lauzon (12:38): Good for them.
Denise Tipton (12:38): So next time you're hitting abuffet or getting a drink someplace downtown.
Brendan King (12:43): Yeah, don't forget about thelocal casinos, Station does an amazing job.
Denise Tipton (12:47): Station does a great job,Cannery does a great job. The Coast casinos, we've got Sun Coast, South Pointand the Orleans. Those are all fantastic places to go, they've got greatrestaurants and you can win big money.
Brendan King (13:00): Obviously. That's the best $3somebody spent.
Caroline Lauzon (13:04): Seriously.
Brendan King (13:05): Better than the $3.50 I spenton my latte today. I got a negative return.
Caroline Lauzon (13:10): Same, same.
Brendan King (13:11): So of course, one of myfavorite things about Ryan Reeves when he was still with us, was when he wouldremind us of the days we can and can't water in Vegas. Because with waterrestrictions comes some rules, as far as what days you're allowed the water.
Denise Tipton (13:26): Yeah, and it also can come withfines.
Brendan King (13:28): Yeah. Oh, big time.
Denise Tipton (13:29):Yeah. I think I might've gottensome of those fines.
Brendan King (13:31): Uh oh. So this is actuallyreally convenient, I didn't know this, I know you said you put in your addresstoday, right?
Denise Tipton (13:37): Yeah. So I literally thought,"Oh shoot. I've got to figure out what it is." Because I know they'vebeen advertising it, that it's fall and you've got to change your watering daysright. It's getting a little bit cooler, you don't want to keep watering toomuch. So I was like, "Oh gosh, let's go to Southern Nevada WaterAuthority." Boom, you put in your address it tells you right away. Wheredo you water? I water Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Brendan King (13:57): Yeah, which is great. And ifanybody's not from Vegas, the reason this matters is because you have to wateron your watering day.
Denise Tipton (14:01): Or you get fined.
Brendan King (14:02): So not everybody has the samedays. Denise has different days than me, which has different days thanCaroline. So that is a nice, convenient way. Of course, like I said, all thelinks are in the video or on Instagram, wherever you're watching this. You canfind the link, put your address in, find out what days. Otherwise we'll come toyour front door and hit you with a hockey stick like Ryan Reeves, Denise willpersonally come to your front door and hit you with a hockey stick.
David (14:27): It's the law.
Brendan King (14:27): It is the law, yes it's thelaw. And of course water up to three days a week, and then there's a thingcalled cycle and soak. This is the way they say you're supposed to water yourgrass in three short cycles 60 minutes apart, 5:00 AM, 6:00 AM, 7:00 AM all forfour minutes each. Soak it, let it go down, soak it, let it go down.
Denise Tipton (14:48): If you have grass.
Brendan King (14:49): If you have grass, do you havegrass?
Denise Tipton (14:50): I don't have grass, I've donesome landscaping
Brendan King (14:51): I don't have grass. Do you havegrass?
Caroline Lauzon (14:52): Lots of rocks.
Brendan King (14:53): Well, we're not going to bedoing that, but definitely something to know. And I think the reason'sevaporation, if you water during the day, most of it's going to disappearbefore it even hits the grass. So yeah, it's the law.
Denise Tipton (15:07): Cycle and soak.
Caroline Lauzon (15:07): It's the law.
Brendan King (15:08): Cycle and soak. So Caroline, Iknow this is something that you really love Gilcrease Orchard.
Caroline Lauzon (15:16): Well fall is my favorite ingeneral, so I'm very excited by this. And if you have not checked out thisplace, I highly encourage you to check it out, Gilcrease Orchard, which is inNorth Las Vegas.
Brendan King (15:28):Outside Magazine's choice forbest town.
Caroline Lauzon (15:32): Yes, North Las Vegas. But it'sa local business, again this family Elda and Leonard Gilcrease moved here in1920.
Denise Tipton (15:41): Hi Leonard.
Caroline Lauzon (15:42): And they inherited some moneyand bought 900 acres of land in the Las Vegas valley. And they moved there withtheir two sons, John and William, and it's been family owned since 1920. It'san orchard, so you can pick fruits, veggies, flowers, they make apple cider.
Brendan King (16:01): Is it sunflowers?
Caroline Lauzon (16:04): Sunflowers, yeah. And whatelse? They make apple cider, donuts, so it's just really fun. And their pumpkinpatch starts on the 22nd, so it's fun to go with the family. They don't allowpets at the moment because of COVID restrictions, like they're trying to be alittle bit more distant. So yeah, bring your own bags or bring your ownscissors for the flowers, but check it out with your family. It's awesome, it'sreally, really cool.
Brendan King (16:30):And what days is it open?
Caroline Lauzon (16:31): Oh, sorry. It's open Tuesdays,Thursdays and Saturdays from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM. So, wake up early and wearsome sunscreen.
Brendan King (16:46): Hey David, who was that a photoof? Is that the owner?
David (16:46): I think it's the owner.
Brendan King (16:46): Is it?
Denise Tipton (16:46): I think it's Leonard.
Caroline Lauzon (16:46): Mr. Gilcrease I believe.
Brendan King (16:48): Let's just say it's Mr.Gilcrease.
David (16:48): Let's say it is, let's say itis.
Brendan King (16:52): We're not sure, but this photowas on the site. If it is, thanks Mr. Gilcrease, it's a pretty cool place.
Caroline Lauzon (16:59): Yeah, it's awesome, check itout.
Brendan King (17:01): Of course, with food andtalking about donuts, it's making all of us hungry, really hungry.
