BARTER is the today’s new currency! Kevin Brown, owner and Barter Guru, is our guide on the trend.

Today’s business environment is based on relationships, The Hudson Barter Exchange is the match maker.

Representing The Hudson Barter Exchange, Kevin Brown expresses a way to keep your employees busy, your image exposed to over 500 other businesses, and your resolve positive.

Did you know that barter business increases your cash clients?

Q & A:

  1. Will the barter exchange refer me for cash business?: Keeping your calendar full and workers working is important during slow time which they do.  But at busy times, they understand and encourage cash sales by still referring your business.
  2. What type of support do you provide?  Not only do they have online shopping for those of us that don’t want to talk to people, but they have several account managers you can speak with regarding your need at all times.  Your inquiry is received and always addressed with, sometimes, multiple solutions.


After ‘living free’ in New Hampshire as a youth, Kevin entered the TV advertising industry after college.  Once landing the $60 million TV Network, Fox, as an employer, he worked long nights and crazy days until deciding that his entrepreneurial urges needed to be met.  He saw the potential for a Barter Exchange in Westchester County so created one with his wife and partner, Karen Brown.  Last year, HBX members traded in excess of $3 million in goods and services.  

Check out how your business can benefit from the exchange.




You’re paying for the Real Estate Agent in your leasing talks, take advantage of it. Paul Moulins, our expert in Commercial Real Estate, alerts us to this reality


Representing RAKOW Group, he expresses the need to protect yourself when you’re seeking leasing for your business.

Paul Moulins devotes his days not only pairing up business owners with inspiring commercial spaces, but educating them on the unknown in securing it.  Real estate is probably the biggest asset your business will have on its balance sheet, rushing into the commitment should not be how you acquire it.

Paul mentioned how the Real Estate broker fees are already factored into the landlord’s square footage price.  So there is no reason why you don’t hire this representation, you’re paying for it anyway.


  1. How far out should you start working on new commercial space?: It takes from 12 to 18 months on average to work out all details with agents and lawyers to ensure you are getting the best for you, your business and your business’ budget.
  2. ‘Personal Guarantee’, ‘Good Guy’ clause, and other terminology that is important to discuss and understand with a real estate broker.  This will ensure, again, that you are setting up your asset correctly.


Paul flew commercial airliners for 12 years prior to committing many hours of training and experience in Commercial Real Estate.


Find your business a home to continue succeeding, more importantly make the right decisions in how the asset is benefiting you.
