Climb Real Estate, a boutique San Francisco brokerage focused on city-dwelling Millennials, has been acquired by NRT LLC, the nation’s largest residential brokerage, the companies announced Wednesday.NRT is the parent of Coldwell Banker, Sotheby’s International Realty and ZipRealty and a subsidiary of Realogy, a publicly traded real estate conglomerate.NRT has pursued the same approach with other regional firms it acquired including the Corcoran Group in New York City and Laura McCarthy Real Estate in St. Louis, said Bruce Zipf, NRT’s president and chief executive.Climb tries hard to appeal to Millennials by focusing on mobile technology and social media.“I believe what this represents is a more traditional type platform coming together with a more innovative, unique-type platform” and providing the financial capital to expand Climb in the Bay Area, Zipf said.Greg Macres, NRT’s executive vice president for the western region, said, We want our agents to be more mobile (and) stretch the boundaries of technology.

- Price to take a hike: Seniors race to buy National Parks passes
By Steve Rubenstein - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
Seniors, who don’t run as fast as they used to, are running to snap up a great deal before the federal government jacks up the price of it by 700 percent.Last month, the agency said its new budget rules required the price to be $80, or the same level as that of an annual parks pass for adults.The hike is part of the National Park Service Centennial Act, which seeks to address infrastructure needs through raised fees.Congress approved the act in December under the Obama administration.Ever since the announcement, there’s been a run on the handful of park service outlets in the Bay Area that offer the pass — the visitor centers in the Presidio, at Fort Point, the Hyde Street Pier, the Marin Headlands and Point Reyes National Seashore.Crowley said the Lands End center stocked up on the passes so it wouldn’t run out before the price hike next month, as no park ranger wants to face a snarling senior in the wild.Seniors with the passes can avoid the $30-per-carload entry fee at parks like Yosemite, Sequoia-Kings Canyon, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone, and the $10-per-person entry fee at Muir Woods National Monument.
