Concierge Auctions Announces That Bidding Is Closed And A Sale Is Pending For The 187+ Acre El Rancho del Rio In Orange County, California

Following a live auction with 10 qualified bidders, the property went under contract in cooperation with Hilton & Hyland, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, and the McMonigle Team of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the pending sale of El Rancho del Rio, a unique ranch compound offering premier privacy, yet conveniently located minutes from the heart of Orange County. The 187+ acre equestrian compound went under contract last night following a live auction in cooperation with Wayne Pridgen of Hilton & Hyland, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate. The buyer is represented by John McMonigle of the McMonigle Team at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services.

"Concierge Auctions has been professional and wonderful to work with," stated the seller, Oscar Schwartz. "They lived up to everything we anticipated. The whole team couldn't have been more informative, gracious, helpful and accommodating throughout this experience."

Encompassing the largest available residential acreage in all of Orange County, El Rancho del Rio is situated in total privacy on a lush valley floor flanked by hills and views to the ocean. In the heart is a mission-style tower, three separate guest casitas and a four-bedroom, four full and two half-bathroom main house. Outside, the property has its own vineyard, helipad and equestrian amenities - five paddocks, two barns with 24 total stalls, corrals, open pastures and miles upon miles of trails. 

Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 17,000 website visits from 45 US states (led by California, New York, Texas and Florida) and 93 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Australia and Germany) and generated 42 property showings. Ten bidders were qualified to compete in the auction.

"In my 26 years in real estate, as both an investor and broker, I have never experienced such a well-rounded execution as was put forth by the Concierge team," stated Pridgen. "To have this much excitement and competition around a property at once is a seller's and broker's dream. Everyone at Concierge is first-class, and I appreciate their partnership to make this auction a success."

"I was very excited and pleased to be a part of this auction. El Rancho del Rio is a prized piece of real estate - one of the last frontiers along the California Riviera," stated McMonigle. "The whole experience was professional, informative, smooth and exciting. The people at Concierge were terrific to deal with, and I'm excited to do more auctions with them in the future."

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
