Man Trumps Up Interest In Whitsunday's, by Miller
been a lot of talk about property investment in
the Whitsunday region lately.
you've been sleeping on a sun bed under a palm
tree, you would have heard of Ivana Trump's luxury
resort plans, via Aquiplan, for the Whitsunday's
may wonder if it is coincidence or not, that Ivana
is flashing her pearly whites "down under"
(on the top end), whilst her ex, Donald Trump,
is making history on his award winning Reality
TV project, 'The Apprentice'?
hard to argue with the potential of the Whitsunday's.
a Bulahdelah (regional NSW) based entrepreneur
named Tingle who recognised the potential of the
Whitsunday region last year, just as he was getting
ready to leave Sydney's "rat race".
Tingle's awareness of Airlie came via way of e-mail
lead that was originally heading for his mentor
of sorts, promotional king pin, Max Markson.
caught up with Tingle at his favourite cafe at
Bulahdelah, and here's the skinning on what this
self described caffeine addict said, "I'm
very excited about my deal with Whitsunday property
developers X. They sent me an e-mail last year
about securing some top line entertainers, who
I recently secured with Max's (Markson's) assistance.
The X's needed big names and wow factor, and we
secured them Jon Stevens and Kate Ceberano! When
I realised the X's ruled the roost in Airlie,
and had prime real estate on the market, I thought,
I want a piece of that action".
a few rumours on the street that Markson has just
written Tingle a big, fat cheque, and that Tingle
is campaigning and pitching the likes of Nine's
'Getaway', The Real Estate Institute and even
The Coastal Channel, in the U.S, who by the way,
is another happy client of Tingle's!
ponders the question, is there's anyone whose
anyone that hasn't been touched by the Tingle
is optimistic that the real life battle between
Trump and Branson in the Reality TV space will
result in a real estate buying war on the Whitsunday's.
For the uninitiated, one of Tingle's clients is
a Richard Branson look-a-like, and Tingle's mate,
"Jake" (Media Juice) enjoys the original
Branson's patronage. We know Branson likes the
water...he purchased an island off QLD a few years
back. Perhaps he might like a piece of Airlie
for his upcoming 'Quest For The Best'!
Tingle chap is not shy about letting the world
in on his connections. One of Australia's most
popular media websites belongs to this energetic
promotional entrepreneur www.mediaman.com.au
Do a search in Google for terms like Branson Australia,
Trump Australia, "Whitsunday Trump",
and to no surprise, Tingle's Mediaman
website comes up trumps! He's also taken the liberty
to secure www.bransonshow.tv !
what's all this banter mean?
one, we know that many a media man is fired up
about the opportunities in Northern Queensland,
but what about you?
you want some newsworthy, all be it, entertainment
industry newsworthy property way up north, Whitsunday
the same time, you will be doing your bit to ensure
upstart Tingle, Australia's real life version
of 'The Apprentice', makes his commission, and
survives yet another round of life, in the promotional
fast-lane. This "kid" makes 'The Block'
look bland! Be quick, this opportunity won't last.
