re: New Orleans or Atlanta - DandyPimp
Live in New Orleans. Have family and do some business in Atlanta. Atlanta had an incredible 25 year plus economic run. I would say that it has seemed to plateau if not decline a bit in the last 5 years while New Orleans is on the upswing. One issue not discussed on here is the fierce competition...

re: Winning a car-tax question - DandyPimp
I read the fine print on car raffle the other day (New Orleans Zoo-to-Do) for a Lexus IS-300. It said you had to present a certified check within 5 days for the full amount of the tax, title and license which they estimated at 25% of the value of the vehicle. I guess that means you can't wait to s...

re: Best type of sales to get into? - DandyPimp
I would add commercial real estate. I know brokers in BR and NO making a million + a year. Their earnings pale in comparison to what top brokers are making in major markets like Houston, NYC, SFO ect. Truly a case of the 80-20 rule as the top brokers are making the vast majority of the money w...

re: Please help settle an argument about Tom Benson - DandyPimp
There were other issues related to New Orleans that were pissing Benson off at the time. Keep in mind that Benson has a chip on his shoulder based on the fact that he was a poor kid from the 7th ward. He was never accepted into NOLA blue blood society. There were many conference calls and now...

re: Silicon Bayou rising: New Orleans' drive to be the next great tech city - DandyPimp
[quote]I actually see a big piece of NOLA not becoming a major player is the lack of real estate to sprawl to. The geography does not make for comfortable commutes from places that communities can sprawl to. There is a lot of lower income land, but there is no way that activists would let their "cho...

Yep. Pretty much every commercial area that is close to residential (b1a zoning) is now conditional use for alcohol. Makes no real difference if you are a bar or a restaurant seeking a license. Conditional use requires city planning commission approval then full council approval. Takes a minimum of...
