Palm Beach Estate Strikes the Market with Engel

August 25, 2020

Engel & Völkers today announced Carol Sollak, License Partner and Private Office Advisor of Engel & Völkers Palm Beach has obtained the listing of 916 S Ocean Blvd in Palm Beach. Listed at $59,000,000, the one-of-a-kind waterfront estate is the latest project developed by Stock Custom homes.

“I’m so excited to finally bring this project to the market,” said Sollak. “This is an amazing opportunity to develop one of the most exclusive properties on Palm Beach Island.”

Curated by architects Roger Janssen and Patrick Mayfield of Dailey Janssen Architects, the 12,427 sq. ft. residence offers eight bedrooms, ten bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. The ground level features sprawling ocean views from both the living room and library, while the second level presents a sitting room and spectacular waterfront views from the veranda. The lower level of the estate has a bar, lounge, wine cellar, theater, exercise room, powder bath, laundry facilities and additional storage. The upper level includes a guest apartment.

“We called in the industry’s absolute best to create a powerhouse team. Stock Homes, Marc Michaels, and my team have put 110-percent of our energy into creating this masterpiece that will be beyond anyone’s expectations. The home is stunning down to every last detail, in a location no one can beat. I will personally be reaching out to all the top agents in the area, as well as Engel & Völkers global network; but I have a feeling, the way that this project is being put together, it will sell itself.”

The 36,529 sq. ft. lot, with 130 ft. of water frontage, makes way for an extravagant outdoor living space including front and rear loggias, center courtyard, expansive pool deck and pool. Direct beach access is provided via an underground tunnel leading to an ocean cabana with a kitchenette, full bathroom, family room and its own private pool.

“Stock Custom Homes is proud to partner with Carol Sollak of Engel & Völkers,” said Matt Sellick. “Our relationship over the past several years has proven very valuable as we continue to grow in the marketplace. Carols’s knowledge of the local market and international exposure with Engel & Völkers is a winning team in our efforts to showcase our Custom Estate Home at 916 South Ocean to the most discerning buyers.”

Having nearly two decades of experience, Sollak is one of the top realtors in Palm Beach County, Florida and the industry nationwide. Selling luxury estates in the Palm Beach Polo & Country Club, the Equestrian Club, Grand Prix Village, and elsewhere throughout Wellington are among her specialties. Sollak ranks among the highest producing agents in the country and currently has an inventory of $159,960,000.

Award-winning architect Roger Patton Janssen, from Dailey Janssen Architects, designed the stunning estate home; luxury interior design firm, Marc-Michaels Interior Design Inc. was responsible for the decor, and Keith Williams of Nievera Williams Design, a leading landscape architecture company, oversaw the design of the luscious grounds.

Palm Beach, known for its extravagant estates and sandy beaches, is located in east-central Palm Beach County and is separated from the mainland by the Lake Worth Lagoon. Palm Beach home values have gone up over one-percent over the last year. This property is the only available oceanfront, new construction estate on Palm Beach with a direct access, underground tunnel to the home’s private beachside cabana. In the last 12 months, 9 homes on Palm Beach Island have sold for over $40 million, the highest sale going for $105 million in November of 2019.

Vac2Go Announces a Brand-new Place and New Truck Brands in 2020

August 25, 2020

Louisville-based vacuum truck rental company, Vac2Go, is broadening their service, reach, and capabilities with a new location in Crown Point, IN. This will be the seventh location established since their founding in 2011, coming alongside the introduction of two new truck brands: Kaiser and Schellvac.

The recent expansion of Vac2Go’s footprint comes just as the national economy endures a downturn. However, they continue to assist their customers with flexibility and integrity. “We are changing the way we provide value in this unpredictable time,” says Todd Tallon, President and CEO of Vac2Go. “Our team acknowledges that customers are operating differently, so we are striving to provide meaningful partnerships by increasing over the road services, onsite training, and preventative maintenance services.”

Tallon adds that “the recent announcement of our Crown Point, IN location helps us reach some of our strategic goals, which include new market penetration, product expansion, diversification, and the opportunity for acquisitions down the road.”

This seventh location is part of Vac2Go’s ongoing vision to grow consistently and reach their customers wherever they are. As is the case with Crown Point, the company is excited to have experienced team members already in place to strategically meet the vacuum truck needs in the northern region, particularly near Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, and the Chicago, Illinois area.

“We were servicing many customers in those areas out of our Kentucky location. Because it was logistically challenging, we made a promise to our customers to get closer in order to meet their needs for last-minute repairs, rentals, and accessories,” says Tallon. “Once we had the right people [to staff the location], we were ready to deploy trucks and get the shop in operating condition.”

Leading the core team for this new location is Jerry Federico, a Crown Point native and experienced operations manager. Federico’s familiarity with the area and equipment uniquely position him to connect with customer needs while helping other businesses in the community. Chris Dimitroff, Development Manager, has also joined the Vac2Go team and will be assisting clients across the Northern Region. “Chris has in-depth knowledge of our industry, trucks, and accessories, making him a great asset,” states Tallon.

The Crown Point, IN location will debut with an Open House on September 18, 2020 from 11am-2pm EDT. Dimitroff, Federico, and the Vac2Go team will be welcoming community members and interested parties to connect and learn more over a provided lunch. Visitors are encouraged to wear masks while enjoying this event.

In addition to Vac2Go’s geographic growth, they recently broadened their featured truck brands to include Kaiser and Schellvac. This brand partnership was carefully chosen based on the manufacturers’ unique features and reliability. The company’s existing partnerships already include GapVax, PresVac, Guzzler, Keith Huber, Vactor, Super Products, and Ledwell.

“The biggest way it compliments our existing partnerships is the focus on customer service. We are committed to representing brands that stand behind their products, allowing us to mirror that business practice in a rental capacity,” says Tallon. The diversity Kaiser and Schellvac both provide to Vac2Go’s rental fleet increases their ability to cater to consumers’ preferences and give them their ideal operating experience with their jobs. The level of customization the company can provide by adding these two brands to their lineup “keeps [their] promise to provide the best equipment, best trucks, and best service,” adds Tallon.

Vac2Go continues to lead the industry with innovative approaches on renting equipment. Learn more about Vac2Go’s locations, truck specifications, and services at

In-Homecare Nurse Opens TruBlue Franchise Seeing High Need For Home Care

August 25, 2020

Experienced home health care nurse David Leach and his wife, Casie Leach, a property management and operations professional, recently left their day jobs to pursue a new senior-focused path as TruBlue Total House Care franchisees. Their biggest goal? Help seniors age in place.

“As a nurse who worked with in-home care, I am acutely aware of the challenges facing older homeowners who need reliable, quality services in and around their homes. Having the right in-home care provider is important, but if no one is taking care of the home itself, living there still won’t be safe or practical. That’s where TruBlue comes in,” David said.

TruBlue is a full-service home maintenance company that offers services inside and outside the home, including senior home safety services and modifications, handyman repairs, cleaning services, yard work, seasonal services and minor home renovations. For clients looking for total house care solutions – especially seniors and busy families who want the comfort and convenience of owning a home without worrying about the maintenance hassles – TruBlue offers House Care Plus, a monthly or quarterly maintenance program.

“We understand that people need creative solutions based on their individual situations. There are times when you may want a major remodel but what you need is just just a walk in shower or a ramp to come home from rehab. We can work with you to figure out the best plan of action for your home and your needs, especially for older adults looking to age in place,” David added.

David and Casie are the latest in a growing list of franchisees and corporate team members with health care and caregiver backgrounds who are joining TruBlue. In June, TruBlue announced that Jennifer Corder, a nurse and former Director of Client Care for an in-home, senior care franchise, had opened a TruBlue franchise in Charlotte.

“I saw such a big need for these kinds of services when I was working in the in-home care industry, and if something like TruBlue had existed in the community I served, I would have been referring these services all the time. The house itself is such an important part of successfully aging in place safely and comfortably. By working with TruBlue, loved ones can have the peace of mind knowing that the seniors in their lives are living in safe, well-maintained homes,” Corder said.

TruBlue President Sean Fitzgerald also previously worked in in-home care. He cites TruBlue’s ability to serve seniors and families as a big reason he joined the company and one of the major selling points for new franchisees.

“TruBlue is an exciting franchise opportunity because, with my experiences in senior in-home care and my own personal experience, I know that the other half of the aging-in-place equation is the home itself. There are many companies providing in-home care services, but the caregivers can’t take care of the house or make the senior safety modifications if needed. Nobody else does what TruBlue does on a national scale and our industry niche is wide open for decades as millions of people want to age in place for as long as possible.”
