Concierge Auctions Generates Impressive Sale Today Of Private, 112-Acre Ranch Estate In Los Angeles' Upscale Brentwood Neighborhood

In partnership with Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, leading luxury property auction firm identifies 761 buyer prospects and 12 bidders in only four weeks

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Building upon its successful track record in the sale of premier and unique ranch estates, Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce that a secluded, 112-acre property nestled in the Mandeville Canyon known as the Robert Taylor Ranch, located on Los Angeles' west side within the affluent Brentwood community just 10 miles from Rodeo Drive, sold today at a live auction. The western-inspired ranch home, which once belonged to the famed actor of the same name, served as the backdrop for the auction, which garnered 12 bidders who vied for the 34-room, 11,700-square-foot-plus estate. The sale was conducted in cooperation with Marcie Hartley and Aaron Kirman of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate. The buyer was from Chicago and was represented by Danelle Lavin, also of Hilton & Hyland.

Concierge Auctions' four-week global marketing campaign generated 7,134 website visitors from all US states (led by California, New York, Florida and Texas) and 97 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Australia and Singapore). 761 buyer prospects inquired with interest, and 12 bidders participated in the sale.

"The Concierge team exceeded our expectations. Their ability to infiltrate the market in such a short amount of time was highly impressive. This auction truly was a team effort, resulting in success for everyone involved," Hartley stated. "I would definitely recommend Concierge to other listing agents. They're professional and focused, their process is effective, and their team clearly understands the luxury market."

"We're very pleased with the sale of the Robert Taylor Ranch," Kirman stated. "Concierge did an amazing job identifying real buyers, resulting in success on auction day. We look forward to working with them again."

Robert Taylor Ranch is a secluded compound with 112 acres of rolling pastures and woodlands. The current structures were built in 1950 for American petroleum businessman Waite Phillips and designed by iconic architect Robert Byrd. The property includes a master suite, five additional bedrooms and five bathrooms. There is also a guest wing, staff wing with three separate apartments, pool and cabana. Additional amenities on the property include a 10-car garage, office complex, guest studio, multiple horse stables, riding arenas, north-south tennis court, spacious pastures and private riding trails that lead to Will Rogers State Historic Park. The Osterman Weekend, the 1983 Sam Peckinpah movie starring Dennis Hopper and Craig T. Nelson, among others, was filmed on the ranch.

"We knew from the onset that the Robert Taylor Ranch was ideal for auction, with its prestigious history, prime location and various ownership possibilities. Bidders jumped at the chance to own more than 100 acres in such close proximity to downtown Los Angeles for their bid price," stated Laura Brady, President of Concierge Auctions. "Our team is skilled at driving the highest market value for premier properties — it's what we do. Moreover, we were able to produce this transaction in only four weeks, after the property had previously been on the market for over four years. We're very proud of the outcome and appreciative to our partners at Hilton & Hyland."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
