Emeril's New Charlotte Restaurant

by Mayes Harris Team

Chef Emeril Lagasse has opened his new restaurant “e2 Emeril’s Eatery” at Levine Center for the Arts and went to a private tasting last night.  It was unbelievable!  It’s within easy walking distance of Uptown Charlotte’s many art, business and cultural attractions -- the Duke Energy Center, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture, Mint Museum Uptown and Knight Theater all surround the new restaurant.

Here’s some information from his website: “With a thriving dining scene, my alma mater Johnson & Wales, the nearby universities and Charlotte’s great cultural and arts community, I feel right at home here,” said Emeril. “I’m excited to join the beautiful museums and attractions at the Levine Center for the Arts and Duke Energy Center with my new restaurant – e2 Emeril’s Eatery. We’re creating a comfortable, fun, neighborhood eatery that serves great food and drink at an affordable price.”

“E2 features an eclectic menu and cooking methods that highlight Emeril’s passion for elevating American classics. The menu will include some dishes inspired by his travels in the U.S. and abroad, plus a few twists on his New Orleans favorites – with a touch of Southern flavor that is uniquely Charlotte. A large bar will feature moderately priced wines, craft beers, unique spirits and handcrafted cocktails.”

Re/Max CEO, Margaret Kelly, has released a video with her thoughts on where the market is headed this year.  She prides herself on “straight talk,” so she tells it like it is:  we’ll see slow and steady improvement in the market, rising home prices, a slight increase in inventory and a housing market that will normalize.  She says this is the year of low interest rates and attractive prices.  Please check out this short video:

Re/Max Chair, Dave Liniger, Wins Award

by Mayes Harris Team

Dave Liniger, the chairman of the board of Re/Max was just named 2011’s People’s Choice Most Influential Leader in Real Estate by Inman News, one of the real estate industry's most authoritative source of market conditions, business trends, technology, real estate and financial news.  I blogged on Mr. Liniger last week, and if you have not had a chance to view the video I posted sharing his predictions for 2012, please take a look now.

I have been lucky enough to hear Mr. Liniger speak over the past twenty years at various conferences and shows, and I’m so pleased that he has been given this honor.


The readers of Inman News™, the leader in real estate and technology news, have selected RE/MAX founder Dave Liniger as the People's Choice Most Influential Real Estate Leader in 2011.

Liniger's selection, based on a popular vote by readers, was announced today during the Inman News Real Estate Connect® conference in New York City, which runs through Jan. 13 at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square.

Liniger, 66, who co-founded RE/MAX with wife Gail in 1973, serves as chairman of the board for the global franchisor. Liniger oversaw the expansion of RE/MAX global franchise operations to eight additional countries in 2011 – there is now a brand presence in nearly every country in Central America and South America, and the franchisor has almost 90,000 affiliated real estate sales professionals in more than 80 countries.

"Our knowledgeable Inman News readers cast their votes for a true visionary of our industry," says Tim G. Smith, CEO of Inman News. "We are honored to include Dave Liniger among our list of influential past winners."

Liniger was also selected to the annual Inman 100 list of Most Influential Real Estate Leaders for 2011 — that list is separate and distinct from the individual People’s Choice recognition, and is based on a reader nomination process and an in-house review and selection process by Inman News.
