BrendanKing(03:17):Offering 1985 prices.
JackPalermo(03:19):Yes. Very good. Especially inthis inflation.
JackPalermo(03:22):So that's very good stuff. Soyeah. So you have to bring your ID and you can get a single ride ticket for adollar. So you're not driving or doing anything that you shouldn't be doing.
BrendanKing(03:34):Yeah. And hopefully, in three orfour years, we're doing the boring company underground transportation.
Underground,yes. The Tesla style.
BrendanKing(03:41):For now, it's the monorail. Buthopefully in the future we get the Elon Musk version of getting around LasVegas. That would be nice.
JackPalermo(03:47):That would be fun.
BrendanKing(03:48):So, yeah. And then, in addition,it's going to be cold. This is like New York temperatures, honestly, for LasVegas for New Year's. So yeah. Dress warm. It is going to be chilly. I love howit says, Las Vegas county officials warn to dress warm, know prohibited items.

BrendanKing(04:12):Check out the link. Just knowwhat you can and can't have on the strip. Nothing's worse than gettingsomewhere after pushing through 5000, 10,000 people only to find out you haveto go back to your car and-

JackPalermo(05:11):The Go-Go's, they canceled theirNew Year's Eve shows on the strip due to the Omicron virus that is out rightnow. So no Go-Go's shows. So hopefully they will be coming back at some pointin 2022.
BrendanKing(05:23):Yeah. But you know who is stillrocking?
BrendanKing(05:28):David Lee Roth. So David LeeRoth rocks Las Vegas. I love these package names, the Jump Package. Jump! ThePanama Package, and Hot For Teacher Package. So.

JackPalermo(06:03):Yes, you were.
BrendanKing(06:06):I love the fact that you slappedmy head on a monkey's head.
JackPalermo(06:09):That was Maxine. Thanks Maxine.
BrendanKing (06:11):Thanks Maxine. Yes, I was therefor a bit. You know who else was there? It was my brother in the exact samerole.
BrendanKing(06:17):In the exact same role.
JackPalermo(06:18):Oh, the same role?
BrendanKing(06:18):Yeah, yeah. Same exact role. Hewore the same jackets I did when I was there, which is kind of cool.
JackPalermo(06:23):That's pretty cool.
BrendanKing(06:23):There it is again.
Crew(06:24):We'll put Chris's picture onthere next week.
BrendanKing(06:26):Yeah. I love that she squeezedmy head between the ears too.
JackPalermo(06:30):She's good. She's good.
BrendanKing(06:32):I love your surprises.
JackPalermo(06:33):Next. Katie Perry just startedher residency at Resorts World as of last night. So tickets range anywherebetween $110 and $700.
Crew (06:45):They're still available too.
JackPalermo(06:46):And there's time.
BrendanKing(06:46):And the sun just blasted throughthe window.
JackPalermo(06:48):Blasted through the window.
BrendanKing(06:49):Now we have these wonderful sunblasted faces.
JackPalermo(06:53):That's what happens this time ofyear.
BrendanKing(06:53):But yeah, Katy Perry, honestly,she just keeps transforming herself. Actually, she's not even transformingherself. She keeps going with the same outlandish style that keeps reinventing,and she's back on stage again.
BrendanKing(07:07):Every time you think she'sstarting to disappear, she's back again.
JackPalermo(07:10):She's back again.
BrendanKing(07:10):And I have to admit, she'spretty good.
JackPalermo(07:13):I've never seen her live.
BrendanKing(07:14):I saw her live at an event in LAand I was actually surprised how good she sounded.
JackPalermo(07:20):I will take your work for it.
BrendanKing(07:20):She actually, her voice wasreally great. So go check out Katy Perry.
JackPalermo(07:24):Tickets 110 to $700. A lot cheaperthan Adele.
BrendanKing(07:27):Yeah. Oh my God. Yeah. So youknow what? This is a super comprehensive guide to New Year's Eve Weekend in LasVegas. Have you checked this article out?
JackPalermo(07:38):I have. There's tons of stuff todo.
BrendanKing(07:41):You got fireworks on the strip.Fremont Street experience.
JackPalermo(07:44):As always, yeah.
BrendanKing(07:45):Concert down there.
JackPalermo(07:45):Yeah. AREA15 is doing somethinghuge. Brooklyn Bowl always has shows.
BrendanKing(07:50):Our buddy Chris always-
BrendanKing(07:51):Always killing it witheverything at Brooklyn Bowl.
JackPalermo(07:54):And of course, the clubs. Yourfavorite.
BrendanKing(07:57):I'm not a club guy. Neither ofus are. But yeah, check out the link because it's pretty comprehensive. There'sso much to do. And it's a really great breakdown of what is available for youas far as New Year's Eve is concerned. Because honestly, you can't make lastminute decisions.
BrendanKing(08:12):When it comes to Vegas or NewYork on New Year's Eve. So definitely check it out.
JackPalermo(08:17):Be safe, everybody.
BrendanKing(08:19):Yeah. Yes, for sure. So I knowyou wanted to talk about this one.
JackPalermo(08:24):Harry Reid. He just got honoredwith the-
JackPalermo(08:30):They just named the airportafter Harry Reid. So now, as of yesterday, they have the Marquees, all Marqueesdown the strip are in commemoration and memorization of Harry Reid.
BrendanKing(08:41):Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And I thinkthey're going for a few days from what David had mentioned.
JackPalermo(08:45):Yeah, through the weekend.
BrendanKing(08:45):I'm pretty sure they're going tobe going for quite a while. So iconic, nevertheless.
BrendanKing(08:52):The Flamingo is officially theoldest hotel, right, on the strip?
BrendanKing(08:58):Wow. Yeah. That's insane. Whichwas kind of crazy.
JackPalermo(09:01):Look at this, this picture.
BrendanKing(09:01):Oh my gosh. One of the first.Yeah, it is. Well, basically, one of, if not the first hotel on the strip,which is wild. The strip looked a lot different back then.
BrendanKing(09:15):A lot of dirt. Yeah.
JackPalermo(09:15):Look at old school.
BrendanKing(09:16):Oh my God.
BrendanKing(09:19):And now. Now, very nice.
JackPalermo(09:21):Still they're they're keeping onrenovating. It looks really nice. So on don't forget. So on December 26th,1946, Benjamin Bugsy Siegel bought that place for $6 million.
BrendanKing(09:33):The legend, Bugsy Siegel.
JackPalermo(09:35):You can learn all about him atthe Mob Museum downtown.
BrendanKing(09:38):I have not been to yet.
JackPalermo(09:39):I have not been there.
BrendanKing(09:40):David hasn't been to yet.
Crew(09:42):It's like a field trip.
BrendanKing(09:44):How can we ... It's like growingup in New York and not going to the Empire State Building, which I am guiltyof. I've never been to the Empire State Building.
JackPalermo(09:50):I've never been to the SearsTower in Chicago either.
BrendanKing(09:52): And I've walked past it.
JackPalermo(09:53):And I was born and raised there.
JackPalermo(09:54):Yes, same here. Yes. Never been.
BrendanKing(09:57):Yeah. So the legend, BugsySiegel was the original builder and owner, right?
JackPalermo(10:01):Yes. You are correct.
BrendanKing(10:03):Yeah. For $6 million. Thesethings are trading for billions of dollars.
JackPalermo(10:07):Billions of dollars.
BrendanKing(10:08):Which is crazy.
JackPalermo(10:09):He only got to enjoy it for ayear before he died.
JackPalermo(10:12):He got killed in-
BrendanKing(10:12):He got killed in his suitethere.
BrendanKing(10:15):Oh, I've seen the movie.
BrendanKing(10:17):I've seen the movie. Is thatwhat the movie's about?
JackPalermo (10:20):Warren Beatty.
BrendanKing (10:20):Warren, yeah.
JackPalermo (10:20):Warren Beatty. Yeah. Bugsy, it'sa good movie.
BrendanKing (10:26):I want you to go back to thismovie.
JackPalermo (10:26):It's good.
BrendanKing (10:26):Yeah. So who is the currentowner?
JackPalermo (10:29):That is, that's a good question.In the notes there, I think.
BrendanKing (10:32):No it's not. Yeah, but eitherway 75 years, oldest hotel on the strip. Bugsy Siegel, legend, was the originalowner, but 75 years. That's incredible. It's awesome. You know why it is theoldest? It's because most of the other ones were torn down. Most of them wereimploded. So it'll be interesting as the strip ages up, if they're going tokeep it around or if it's going to see the end, like a lot of these have.
JackPalermo (10:57):Hopefully, it sticks around.It's a cool spot.
BrendanKing (10:58):Yeah, I hope so too.
JackPalermo (10:59):Don't forget. They also have asteakhouse that just opened last year called Bugsy's.
BrendanKing (11:03):Oh cool.
BrendanKing (11:05):The throwback to the guy's moviethat I need to watch again. So.
JackPalermo (11:09):Put it on the list.
BrendanKing (11:10):In the other news, GameWorks isclosing its complex at Town Square, which I have to admit, it's the redheadedstepchild to Dave & Buster's. No offense, GameWorks.
JackPalermo (11:21):Better than Showbiz and Chuck E.Cheese's, though.
BrendanKing (11:23):Ah, come on. Chuck E. Cheese'sis the best. You can't say that.
JackPalermo (11:26):The anatomical.
BrendanKing (11:29):Showbiz was very Midwestern. Wedidn't have that in New Jersey.
Crew(11:32):We had it in Ohio for sure.
BrendanKing(11:33):Did you have that in Illinois?
JackPalermo(11:34):We had Showbiz and then Chuck E.Cheese's came after.
BrendanKing(11:37):Yeah. I missed out that one. Butyeah, GameWorks has permanently closed. I'm sure it has a lot to do with thepandemic, of course. But in other real estate news, this is.
JackPalermo(11:48):Or real estate news.
BrendanKing(11:49):Yeah. Or in real estate news, ingeneral, because that wasn't real estate news.
JackPalermo(11:52):Let's talk about the prices.Prices, Jesus.
BrendanKing (11:56):What? Blazing speed.
JackPalermo(11:57):We are ahead of blazing speed.We are in ludicrous speed.
BrendanKing(12:02):Spaceballs and Elon Musk'sTesla. Ludicrous mode.
JackPalermo(12:06):Yes. Ludicrous mode.
BrendanKing(12:06):We're officially the fastestgrowing city. One of the fastest growing cities in the US currently at, Ibelieve, 25% increase in value comparatively to the rest of the country. Ithink it's six or 7% lower. So we're blazing. Sorry.
JackPalermo(12:23):We're ludicrously increasing.
BrendanKing(12:26):Yeah. That's just incredible. Idon't know. We'll see what this year brings. I think it's going to be on theupside. Obviously, we don't have a crystal ball. We can't foresee what willhappen with interest rates or anything like that. But I do foresee at least aupside swing with inventory being as low as it is.
JackPalermo (12:45):Mm-hmm (affirmative).
BrendanKing (12:46):But I just can't imagine 26%.But we may have to replay this clip in a year and see.
JackPalermo (12:52):Where we're at. It could be 50.
BrendanKing (12:53):Yeah, yeah. No.
JackPalermo (12:55):No, we don't know that.
BrendanKing(12:56):But of course, if you want toknow what the market update is every single week, every Monday we do the MarketUpdate. You can text Market to: 702-553-1955. If you'd like the Weekly MarketUpdate, text directly to your phone every single week.
JackPalermo (13:12):Don't forget: 702-553-1955.
BrendanKing(13:15):That is correct. If you want tohear about these 25, 26% increases every single week, we'll send it to you.
JackPalermo(13:20):We'll let you know.
BrendanKing(13:22):Yeah. This one is crazy.
JackPalermo(13:24):Another Las Vegas apartmentcomplex sells for $73 million.
BrendanKing(13:29):Yeah, that's incredible.
JackPalermo(13:30):And this is the second one thathas sold from the same company, which is SB Real Estate. And from California,they just recently purchased one for $67 million.
BrendanKing(13:40):Jesus. Yeah. Those areastounding numbers that I don't think five or six years ago we've ever seen.
BrendanKing(13:46):And now we've got a lot ofdevelopers from LA that are tired of being squeezed to 1%, 2% cap rates who arenow buying buildings here because these see an upside potential. I think thiscontinued exodus from California is, we're going to see it for, I think, a longperiod of time.
BrendanKing(14:05):Oh, you know what we should haveposted? Next week, we'll have to.
BrendanKing(14:09):They showed the increase ininbound and outbound residents from every single state.
BrendanKing(14:16):In the country. And Nevada wasone of the top five or six. And then they showed the outbound numbers fromCalifornia, New York.
JackPalermo(14:23):California. Yeah. Washington.
BrendanKing(14:25):And things like that. And oh myGod. It's like a, it's a huge difference. Massive difference. But we're spreadout between Idaho and Nevada and Texas.
BrendanKing(14:34):And Arizona. But yeah,definitely. That's a massive, massive, massive sale. 73 million, was it?
BrendanKing(14:42):Crazy. That's crazy. Insane. Sowe figured we'd do a little style upgrade advice article that we found. Thoughtit had some great minimal, I should say, inexpensive home upgrades. They usethe word cheap, but I always hate that word.
BrendanKing(15:02):Inexpensive home upgrades.Because you know what? They look nice. So to me that doesn't mean cheap. Thatmeans inexpensive. So one of those is minimalist glass plant holders.
JackPalermo(15:13):Fish bowls on a wall.
BrendanKing(15:14):It's kind of fish bowls on awall.
JackPalermo(15:15):My daughter like this one.
BrendanKing(15:16):This is a huge trend.
BrendanKing(15:17):Another one was air plants for awhile where you pinned an airplant and all you had to do was just soak it in atowel once every month. So now we've gone to fish bowls instead.
JackPalermo(15:29):All right. Don't forget aboutyour trendy pendant light.
BrendanKing(15:31):I think that'll always be infashion to a certain extent, either big and bold or tiny and minimalist. Theseare minimalist pendant lights.
BrendanKing (15:43):So a set of faux leather pillowcovers.
BrendanKing(15:47):They're kind of nice.
JackPalermo(15:49):Can't go wrong. Can't go wrong.
BrendanKing(15:51):Your minimalist vase set.
JackPalermo(15:53):Yeah. So matching colorwise andspread them around the house. Very nice.
BrendanKing(15:58):Of course ... So you know what?This was a popular trend in tile, actually, geometric tile. And it's alsoreally expensive. So people are doing entire walls in geometric tile. So theytake it to another level and they've done this geometric wallpaper, which ispretty interesting. Definitely something that I think is on the inexpensiveside to still do a trendy thing.
JackPalermo (16:21):Looks trendy.
JackPalermo(16:22):Looks great. Don't rub your handagainst the wall.
JackPalermo(16:26):Anyway, you got peel and sticktiles. So this is for back splashes and things like that would look kind ofcool.
BrendanKing(16:31):I've actually seen this a fewtimes. It depends on which one, but some of them are really nice, I have toadmit. And definitely is going to save you a pretty huge penny as far ascompared to the cost of actual back splash.
Wegot throw pillows. So throw pillow covers. My wife is a massive fan of this.We've used the same pillows for many years, but I think we've got bags and bagsof throw covers. It is a really good way to take pillows you already have. Somany people throw them out. Take off the cover and put on a new cover. This oneis of a dog; maybe next week, a cat. This isn't one of those, though.
JackPalermo(17:07):Last but not least.
BrendanKing(17:08):And then of course-
JackPalermo(17:10):Stainless steel drawer pulls.
JackPalermo(17:12):Adds a little bit of excitementto your kitchen.
BrendanKing(17:14):I feel like this has been atrend for a year or two. Actually, one of your properties had similar pulls.The one in in the vineyards.
JackPalermo(17:21):In the vineyards yes.
BrendanKing(17:22):Had very similar pulls to this.And that was a $1.4 million home.
JackPalermo(17:26):Yeah. 1.29. Yeah.
BrendanKing(17:28):Yeah. So $1.3 million home withsimilar pulls. I think you can really achieve similar results with inexpensivematerials sometimes.
JackPalermo(17:36): For sure.
BrendanKing(17:36):Yeah. So start getting thosepulls.
JackPalermo(17:39):I'm going to start getting thosepulls.
BrendanKing(17:40):We're going to get the pulls inthe office.
Yeah.Rock them out.
BrendanKing(17:42):Inexpensive. So of course, it'sthe end of the year and we're happy to announce that we ranked in the top 1% ofteams in the country and in Las Vegas, which is awesome. Our goals next yearare pretty hefty. They're actually over double what we're doing this year. Andhonestly, it brings us nothing but joy to help our clients. And we figuredwe're going to do a little bit of a year in review. I almost feel like weshould have some kind of emotional music right now or something.
JackPalermo(18:14):I know, right?
BrendanKing(18:14):"If I could turn backtime." That's not emotion.
JackPalermo(18:19):Oh my God. Yes. Cher.
BrendanKing(18:20):Yeah. That was a random choice.I never was a good DJ. DJ?
BrendanKing(18:28):So we figured we'd review abunch of the homes we sold this year and tell you a little bit about a lot ofthem. So Soft Horizon Way. My good clients, the Shas. I've actually sold fourof their homes. Ryan's house.
BrendanKing(18:42):One of our first.
JackPalermo(18:43):He used to work with us.
BrendanKing(18:43):Actually, the first agent on myteam. He's moved to Chicago, sadly, to Jack's original home base. That wasRyan's home there on Pacific Grove. Kesington, that was an awesome home in thecliffs.
BrendanKing(19:01):Honestly, that family did anamazing job on the property. Redid nearly everything and bought an even equallyamazing home in the cliffs, as well, from Par-D. Bay Hill Drive. Awesomeclients from Canyon Gate.

JackPalermo(23:57):It was 25.
BrendanKing(23:59):Yeah. So thankfully, Jack hadthe wherewithal to understand that the property had more value in it than whatit actually was when the renters moved out.
BrendanKing(24:07):So we had a contractor comethrough and redo the entire property, and honestly, sold it for a lot more thanhe would've sold it for.

BrendanKing(27:16):Yes. When the next two and theyare in. Hopefully they have a chance against the Colts, as their startingquarterback is right now in COVID protocols.
BrendanKing(27:24):So that would be very good forthe Raiders. That would be making an easier game
JackPalermo(27:27):Yeah. Yeah. For sure. Because ifI read correctly, I think the Colts are actually favored in this one.
