Dr. Mark McKenna Pioneers New Botox Phone App

Dr. Mark McKenna is pioneering a new venture that will do for Botox, what Uber does for transportation. His new venture is called OVME, and it is essentially an app for cosmetic surgery. Through OVME, users will connect with freelance cosmetic practitioners that will perform low risk operations on demand, all from the comfort of their own homes.

Dr. Mark McKenna is a graduate of Tulane Medical School. The son of a doctor McKenna observed his own father’s struggles as changes in reimbursement and billing began to affect his practice. Coming to the conclusion that working as a doctor might not be frugal enough, Dr. Mark McKenna decided to go into real estate. He achieved much success selling real estate in New Orleans until Hurricane Katrina shut him down. Now he is immersing himself in the world of cosmetic treatments. Since his graduation from Tulane in 1999 Dr. Mark McKenna has founded, built, and sold numerous businesses. Now the doctor turned businessman prepares for his biggest venture yet.

Cashing in on the phenomena of the retail medical industry, McKenna plans on taking the $4 million he’s raised on Equity 38 and turn it into a business worth $25 million in five years. OVME’s first two clinics will be built in Atlanta and Nashville. McKenna plans on creating a nationwide network of providers. The providers will be able to log into the app, much like an Uber driver, and set their availability. The app will then link the provider to clients in and around their area. As no other major group is operating this way OVME will be extremely unique. Primarily it will focus on Botox as it is currently brand-popular. As it continues and more clinics are established the list of procedures will expand.

The OVME app will not only benefit those searching for quick cosmetic operations, but it will also create extra revenue for practitioners. In a world where everything is available at your fingertips, the idea of app-requesting medical service is an extreme innovation. One that may very well spell the future of the industry.

Nick Vertucci – A Real Estate Mentor and Trainer

Nick Vertucci is the CEO and founder of NV Companies, Inc. in Orange County, California. Currently, he is a professional real estate investor but his earlier career was in law enforcement as a Huntington Beach police officer and a computer management leader who provided U.S. businesses with computer systems. He has accumulated a vast experience in real estate beginning with his knowledge of buying bank owned properties, then adding to that his ability to help investors develop single family homes.


Nick travels throughout the country as a professional trainer and mentor for real estate investors on all levels. He teaches people real estate tips in buying, renovating, and selling real property. In the early 2000s, Nick’s financial situation came under fire due to the internet bust which negatively affected his computer business. A friend invited him to a 3-day real estate training seminar where he became enthralled with real estate. His financial situation soon improved and now has made him one of the top real estate investment trainers in the country.


The Nick Vertucci real estate academy “Flip with Nick,” teaches people the strategies that helped him improve his finances. His NV Real Estate Academy was incorporated in January 2013. He shares his experience and techniques in three to four-day workshops across the United States. He also makes himself available with one-on-one mentoring programs and online tutorials.

He is considered a professional with integrity, compassion and is committed to training anyone who believes in working tenaciously and putting in the time, you too can be successful in the real estate market.

Nick Vertucci Made a Bad Situation Better

For years, Nick Vertucci struggled to figure out what he was going to do. While he thought that he had the right thing when he was selling computer parts, but that ended up being a terrible business for him. He knew that he would have to do something that was longer-lasting and that he would have to show people that they could also do it no matter what they had a background in. For Nick Vertucci to be able to do this, he had to try and make sure that things would continue to get better and that he could show others what he was doing.


After being introduced to a real estate seminar, Nick Vertucci knew that he would want to do that for a long time. He also knew that there was job security in that field because people would always need property if they wanted to be successful and they would have to have someone who could help them with it. He tried his hardest to make things easier while he was becoming a real estate agent and that is what allowed him to keep making his real estate business better than any other business he could have started.


Nick Vertucci learned a lot about the industry and learned what he needed to do to be successful. He used all of this and truly became a millionaire. He was successful for the first time in a long time and it meant a lot to him because he knew that he could do more with the things that he had in real estate. He also knew that things would always get better as long as he was helping people out with the properties that they had. It was a way for him to make things easier and a way to show people what they could get out of real estate.


Just because Nick was successful didn’t mean that nobody else should be successful. In fact, he wanted more people to learn about the real estate methods that he came up with and he wanted them to have a chance to be just as successful as what he was. That is where the idea for an academy came into play and he started it out so that people could attend the academy and learn more about the way that they could sell real estate and make money while they were doing it.

The Booming New York Real Estate

As per the StreetEasy, the real estate industry in Manhattan, New York grew by 9.5% year-over-year in its third quarter. This represented the fastest growth in over the past seven years. Presently, one out of every five homes in Manhattan can be regarded as a luxury due to their costly asking prices compared to the averages of sales within the past year. There has been a continuously attractive market for the locals as well as internationals in New York, and more growth is expected in the near future.

On the go

In a statement that was released by data scientist, Alan Lightfeldt, on StreetEasy, it puts it that renting in Manhattan has become more expensive compared to the past, and this is a fact that weighs down heavily on the long-term housing affordability of the city. Due to overcrowding, growing competition and high rents in parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan, most residents of NYC apartments for rent will be needed to shift their attention to East and South Brooklyn as well as 110th Manhattan Street in a bid to relieve their rent burdens.

In the coming month, the StreetEasy has projected that both Brooklyn and Manhattan real estate costs will be on an upward trend. The prices of estate prices in New York fell by 4.5% in 2015’s third quarter. According to Town Residential, this was something that should not cause an alarm.

Keep on shopping

Despite the 4.5% drop in the average sales price from second to third quarter of 2015, the prices are still at a 1.5% increase as compared to 2014. To add on, property stays on the market for less than a week compared to the previous quarter. This represents the inventory shortage of the city and the high demand.

In the 2nd quarter of 2015, the prices saw a modest increase according to a research carried by Town Residential. In pricing terms, the condo market was booming. Median sales had even big increases with minute changes in days on market and cost per square foot.

At the heart of the firm’s culture is a professional team that possess unrivaled experience and knowledge of the industry. The unique culture and a winning formula that has accorded Town Residential most of its accolade is their availability to every town’s representative.

This will ultimately increase the demand for housing and due to the rising economy, the company will reap from the demand for luxury housing. One of the most strategic characteristic of the Boraie Development Company is the fact that is has always been on top of its game when it comes to ceasing opportunities. The company chose just the right spot to put the Aspire 17 Story Building a few yards from the Brunswick Train Station. This means that residents will have access to various cities via train services which is an added advantage for people who work far from New Jersey. The state of the art apartments are the real definition of elegance in every sense of the word.

The Real Estate Industry in New Jersey is Set to Rise from the Ashes

According to an article by, the real estate business has made a comeback since the slumber in 2006 but New Jersey is not yet out of the woods. Despite the rise in the industry, properties in New Jersey remain below the slumber witnessed in 2006. An expert in real estate commented that residents of New Jersey are afraid of listing their properties owing to fears of price undercuts. Experts also rationalize that the slumber of prices in New Jersey’s property market is a result of: the high rate of foreclosed properties that stands at 8.12% and New Jersey’s small population. This can be considered a good opportunity for home lookers and investors in New York since homes in New Jersey are cheaper compared to the market prices in New York.

Some believe that the real estate industry in New Jersey is on the road to recovery. According to Housing Wire, there are 4 main reasons why the housing industry in New Jersey is going to bloom. First of all, the low down payment and interest rates are telling signs of an industry that is on the way to recovery. Secondly, technology has made marketing very easy. Online marketing strategies such as social media advertisements and search engine optimization are some of the ways that can be used to boost sales. Thirdly, the change in demographics is such that owning a house is not limited to families like the trend was in the past. The rate of single people looking to buy homes is steadily rising. Last but not least, it is possible to buy a home through real time brokers. In the past, you had to meet personally with a broker in order to buy property. Nowadays, you can learn all you want about a piece of property through the internet.

However, just like New Jersey, the town had potential and for business men like Omar Boraie, this was an opportunity to invest in world class residential buildings. Employers and employees are now working and living in New Brunswick.
