BIG SKY, Mont., March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Global real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions hammered the gavel last night on its 11th successful Montana auction: the 259-acre Crosscut Ranch. The firm, which has sold many of the state's most prestigious properties, in locations ranging from Spanish Peaks and the Yellowstone Club to private ranches and estates, also announced its next opportunity: the April 17th auction of 17 Travertine Road in Big Sky. Eric Ladd and Ryan Kulesza of L&K Real Estate represent both properties.
"I have watched Concierge's success throughout Montana and around the world, but I didn't fully understand the power of their process until we worked together on the Crosscut Ranch auction," stated Ladd. "Their reach to serious, high-net-worth buyers is incredible."
Nestled on the southern side of the Bridger Mountain Range, a short distance to downtown Bozeman and the Bozeman airport, Crosscut Ranch is ideal for use as a gentleman's ranch, with development and conservation opportunities and ski-in ability and ski-out potential. The five-week auction marketing campaign generated over 11,700 website visits from 45 US states (led by Texas, California, Montana and Florida) and 81 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, Australia and France). Social media efforts attracted 100,000+ views and 1,700+ engagements. Five qualified bidders competed in the auction.
Ladd added about the upcoming auction of 17 Travertine, "No doubt the Yellowstone Club is one of the most sought-after addresses in the nation. This is an incredible opportunity to purchase a turnkey home where you can enjoy its private amenities year-round."
Poised at the top of Andesite Ridge in the nation's most exclusive ski resort (membership by invitation) overlooking a championship Tom Weiskopf golf course and Pioneer and Eglise Mountains, 17 Travertine Road is big on space and style. The 4,505-square-foot, 5-bed, 4-bath residence is situated on over 3 private acres — mere steps away from the 5,750 skiable acres of Big Sky Resort — and will sell to the highest bidder at or above $2.75 million.
Big Sky is located approximately midway between West Yellowstone and Bozeman in the southwestern part of Montana. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains just west of the famed Gallatin River near the northwest corner of 2.2 million-acre Yellowstone National Park, the Club is a private residential community known for its exclusivity. In addition to world-renowned skiing and an 18-hole golf course, residents and visitors also enjoy mountain biking, fishing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, rock climbing and white water rafting. Warming huts, the extravagant Rainbow and Warren Miller Lodges and the Timberline Cafe, among others, offer guests fine dining, relaxation areas, retail shops and even a day spa. The closest airport is Gallatin Field Airport, located about 50 miles south in Belgrade.
"In the two years we've been selling properties in and around Big Sky, the interest has increased tremendously, and we continue to grow our database of buyers looking for opportunities in the region," stated Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions. "Last night's buyer of Crosscut Ranch has been following our Mountain and Hawaii auctions for over a year. We were excited to help him 'land' this one and to now focus our efforts towards finding the next resident of the Yellowstone Club."
The auction of 17 Travertine Road, located in the Yellowstone Club of Big Sky, Montana, will be held on April 17th. A 3% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is available for preview daily with 48-hour notice. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
