estate market for more than 20 years. We operate between our offices in New York City and the rest of the

One&Only Realty offers clients a comprehensive and exclusive concierge service as well as legal support.
Our clients include the most discerning high net worth individuals, as well as prestigious corporations and private

So why invest in real estate? Premium real estate has traditionally been an attractive investment opportunity, as it has
tended to weather financial downturns and other issues that have affected other industries and investments, whilst
also yielding healthy returns on capital investment.
The One&Only Realty expert analytics team takes the view that this traditional model is likely to continue, with anticipated
15-20% of returns for our exclusive offers in particular.
So why invest in the US? From a macroeconomic and geopolitical standpoint, the US is a safe place to invest with a
developed rule of law and property rights, a relatively stable and secure world leading economy, and few material
external influences on economic or political policy. This is not to mention the fact that the US the highest spending

opportunities that every new day holds – an
awakening, an opening up of one’s senses and
a burst of sunshine. In its tentative, inchoate,
anticipatory state, dawn is the world coming
to light from the ethereal dark of the night.
The early-day chill of dawn provides an erotic
tingle on the skin, awakening the senses and
passions as the day begins.
Like Eleanor Thornton, thought by many to
be the inspiration behind the Spirit of Ecstasy,
the Rolls-Royce Dawn will itself prove to be

Many people travel the world to go skiing without
ever knowing that it is not skiing they are after.
Skiing is a great excuse to go somewhere, but
maybe it gets a little too much attention?
To travel is to notice the world as it turns. Let
skiing be your guide, but not your master.
Loosen your grip, put down that itinerary,
ignore Google, take a moment to look around,
and don’t rush, because the surest way to
catch a train is to miss the one before it.
on the Alaskan Frontier
By Chris Booth
Photos Reuben Krabbe
“Me and a couple of buddies, we had
a syndicate for years. Then in 2008 we
won $34.1 million dollars.” I’m sitting at
the Bitter Creek café in Stewart, a small
Canadian town on the Alaskan Frontier.
Sitting across from me is Mike, a semibald,
heavy-set guy from Kelowna.
Wearing an old BC Hydro jacket, he
kind of looks like a logger. Mike finishes
his beer, looks at it, then looks at me and
says, “When I found out I tried calling
my parents to tell them, but I couldn’t
get through. So I put on a Chuck Berry
record and danced around my house in
my underwear.” He orders another pint
of Honey Brown, “I didn’t blow it all
though like most people. I still have my
share, I still work, I still have the same
house and everything, but now I can
afford to go heli skiing every year.”
Mike is not the kind of guy I expected to meet
at a heli ski operation. But then again, none
of this is what I expected. When I was given
the chance to go on a Heli Safari with Last Frontier
Heli, located up in the far reaches of Northern
BC, Canada, I had figured it would be the classic
Canadian heli/lodge experience, the experience
the Canadian reputation is built on. But from the
moment I arrived in Stewart – the first stop on our
Safari – I had to rethink all of it.
Stewart is a town built to support a mining industry
that no longer exists. Situated at the end of the
Portland Canal, Stewart sits about a half-mile
from the border. A clear-cut through the forest
separates it from neighbouring Hyder, Alaska,
The wheels of industry turned here for almost 100
years. There was a time when the town swelled to
many tens of thousands and business was good,
a time when men from all over Canada flocked
to work the silver mines, drink whisky and make
more of themselves. But the landscape was harsh
and unyielding. Giant glacial plateaus plunged
into icy ocean fjords. Avalanches engulfed teams
of men working the valleys below. Man, they must
have tried. They carved tunnels through rock, they
shored up massive slipping hillsides, they cut trails
through deep pine and hemlock forests, and they
laid tracks along the shorefront to set up a goods
line down south. But this was rough country,
nobody got rich, and when the mines closed
down and moved to more profitable locations the
workers left with them.
Today the town is all but dead. But the spirit of
frontier life remains in the buildings that continue
to line Main Street. Some are artfully restored in
Pastel timber, like the Ripley Creek Inn and the
Bitter Creek Café, with their cosy kitsch interiors
and bric-a-brac from the silver rush, others less so.
Down the road an original ‘57 Chevrolet Bel Air in
jet blue sits in an old warehouse. It looks like it’s
been driven once and then just left to sit.
But where most would see only history, two
salty old Swiss skiers and an Englishman saw
something else. Like the miners of the early 20 th
century, George Rossett, Franz Fux and Mike
Watling saw opportunity where others saw nothing
but wilderness. For the miners it was the rich silver
veins in the upper Salmon River Basin, for Rossett,
Fux and Watling, it was the 9,500km 2 of available
tenure, packed with expansive glaciers, steep fallline
forests and epically skiable peaks, making it
the biggest single heli ski operation on Earth. In
the middle of this skiing Nirvana, Last Frontier
Heli was born.
My arrival coincided with an Arctic outflow
causing sub-arctic temperatures starting at minus
25 degrees. Tundra-like conditions made the first
two days unbearable. It was cold, it was dry, and it
was hard. But then it snowed. After being sucked
into the slipstream of the outflow, this low pressure
dropped 50cms of the driest snow imaginable
in a single night, lighter than Utah, lighter than
Hokkaido, lighter than anything. I’ve never seen
anything like it. I figured being a heli operation
we couldn’t fly during a storm system, and that we
would have to wait for the next blue bird to go up,
but that very next morning we were out there in the
field. What we saw was a landscape transformed;
from an empty frostbitten Yukon to a deep winter
We couldn’t believe it. None of us, not even
Watling himself had ever skied snow like that.
It was all there in front of you, but there just
wasn’t any resistance, there was no feedback, you
couldn’t feel a single flake. It was so deep and yet
so fast that even making simple turns through it
was strange; less like skiing and more like moving
through a medium, like being a ghost.
“Having good tree line skiing is so important for
a heli operation,” said Watling as we waited to
drop the next run, “Otherwise you just don’t get
to ski days like this.” I wasn’t at all accustomed
to flying around in a helicopter in the middle of a

storm system, but at Last Frontier you average four
out of five days on the hill. That’s an unbelievable
strike-rate for a heli ski operation.
With each lap it seemed we would ski into snow
that was even drier and even deeper than the
last. At one point we skied the left side of a long
bending bowl. I watched as the others dropped
into the bowl and disappeared somewhere into the
tree line, long-veiled ghosts leaving monochrome
vapor trails lingering in the frigid white air before
me. I filled my lungs with cold air, and dropped.
The next part was something I’d never experienced
before. All you could really do was just point
your skis fall line and let the snow – now up
to your chest just below armpit level – engulf
you completely. It was like being at the eye of
your own personal snowstorm, catching only
momentary glimpses of the run before the next
turn washed over you. And with snow so light it
got in everywhere; in the seams of your hood, in
between your goggle lenses, through the powder
skirt in your jacket and up your back and up and
inside your beanie – while you were wearing it. It
was just unbelievable.
“You think you have something to write about
yet?” said Watling as he handed me a sandwich
and a cup of coffee back at the helicopter. I sort
of nodded and smiled. I wasn’t settled and didn’t
really have anything to say. I had only just stopped
and I hadn’t caught my breath. Part of me was still
up in that bowl somewhere. I took the sandwich
into my hands and saw that it was squishy and real.
I spilled some coffee onto my gloves, pulling me
back into the present. “You ready for Bell 2 now?
It’s completely different all over again, you’ll see,”
Watling said as he piled the backpacks into the ski
box. “The weather’s really coming in so it’s time to
move.” And so it went, feeling like I had only just
returned to Earth, now it was time to leave it again.
We’re flying at treetop elevation and the windows
are thick with condensation. It’s minus 22 degrees
outside and dumping. Visibility is low. Through
the front window I watch as the Alaska Highway
files out ahead, trucks carrying natural gas and
logs pass underneath. It’s our map from Ripley
Creek to Bell 2 Lodge. “We go by the IFR
principle here,” yelled Mike over the drum of the
heli, “I Follow Roads.” Roads (and rivers) are the
lifelines when the weather gets bad in the area;
they are what the pilots use to stay oriented when
the clouds really come in.
We soon land at Bell 2 Lodge, located 360km
north-west of Smithers and deep into the Canadian
Wilderness. Originally a service station for
travellers of the Stewart-Cassiar Highway on their
way to Alaska and the Yukon, Bell 2 Lodge is now
the beating heart of Last Frontier’s Drop City – a
smattering of log chalets surrounding the main
lodge. While I spent the day skiing, the crew at
Last Frontier were busy transporting my luggage
from Stewart to Bell 2, and it was already packed
away in my cabin by the time we landed.
Bell 2 is remote but with satellite communication
and state-of-the-art environmental facilities, it offers
the comforts of a first-class hotel with a rustic touch
of the Canadian wild. The dining room, lounge and
bar act as the focal point for skiing stories to be
shared, while the hot tub, massage rooms and yoga
studio offer all those other modern comforts one
would expect from a fancy hotel.
But it’s no hotel. It’s much more personal than that.
Because Last Frontier is foremost about skiing, the
lodge looks like it’s been tinkered on over time.
There is no overall design scheme, it’s not like a
designer rolled out a floor plan and went, “Let’s
build a customer experience.” Each room in the
lodge is different. When you walk in through the
entrance the first thing you see is a sign that reads,
What would Johnny Cash do? I’m not sure what it
means, but I like it. Bell 2 has something distinctly
personal about it, perhaps a materialisation of who
Watling is as a person. “This has been my life, this
place,” he said. “I’ve put everything into it.”
The next day there isn’t a cloud in the sky. The
early sun shines bright, blocked only by crisp
white peaks casting soft morning shadows
across the valleys. As the helicopter lifts off from
our first drop it whirs cold snow into a cloud above
us, glittering in the morning sun. We are feeling
humble after yesterday, and today the mood is pure
gratitude. This is a harsh and unrelenting part of
the world, but today the mountains are kind. We
ski bluebird pow till dusk, stopping only to collect
a chunk of glacier ice for the bar – it’s Watling’s
thing. “It’s dense so it lasts incredibly long in the
glass,” he says with a grin as he shoves it into the
rear hatch. I guess he who owns the place can do
what he wants. But before we head back, Watling
has one last run he wants to show us.
“This isn’t a place we usually take guests,” he says,
“but it’s the coolest area I’ve seen around this whole
place.” We land atop a long, steep ridge where the
alpine meets the treeline. The early evening light
catches it beautifully, casting everything in a pinkish
alpenglow. “I’d usually let the guide and guests
drop first, but it’s my birthday today,” says Watling

as he pushes off, quickly disappearing over the
rollover. I crank my boots then take a brief moment
to look around. What a place.
I make a few turns into the rollover but can’t see much
below, it seems to keep rolling. So I go a little further
and track right around an island of trees. And then it
reveals itself – the full enjoy, a 2000ft apron of pow
that ran steep down off the ridge all the way to the
heli below, bathed in the last light of the day. I ski
a few turns into it then stop, I think to myself, turns
are nice and everything but I’m just going to let go
here. This is the moment you spend all year working
for, the moment you picture in your head at 3pm on
a Wednesday when you’re wondering why you are
in an office surrounded by grey plastic electronics
responding to emails. This is the reason you get up
every day and wade through the abrasiveness of life
and all its vicissitudes; the monotony, the subservience,
the inescapability of gravity and the whole stupid,
ridiculous everything. This is the moment you keep
in your head to help you through that. Now that I
was finally there I threw myself into that moment
completely. I put everything on autopilot. I could
feel my skis turning and moving, but relinquished
all control over them. I stopped bothering with pole
plants and let my arms go wherever. Snow was flying
up everywhere around me, terrain was coming at me
quickly, trees were flying by, but in the middle of it
was calm. I started to breath. I became entranced in
my own motion, allowing every movement to occur
naturally, to respond to what the mountain gave me,
but without a single thought as to its existence. And in
that moment, that little moment just there, I began to
I was on a one-man party-wave of emotion,
ghosting through magical frozen ether on my
orange hover planks. With arms stretched out, I
pointed straight down the mountain and, lifting
my head to the sky, I thanked the Universe. I had
entered a transformational vortex into a visceral
infinity. I had become Pow Jesus.
Later in the Base 2 Lodge bar the mood is lifted. The
guests are at the tail-end of their week and making
the most of it; too early to think of the real world that
awaits them, and still tucked far enough away from
the world to pretend that it doesn’t exist, they toast to
a week without compromise. I’m still in my ski boots.
My feet are wet but I don’t care. I toast the week with
them. Watling comes over and pours me another glass
of Forty Mile. “You think you have something to
write about yet?” he says again. Watling and I cheers
glasses. There’s an Aussie chick behind the bar. She’s
from Myrtleford and plays mandolin. When she later
pulls it out and starts playing everyone stops what
they’re doing and watches. She’s impressive. One of
the guides picks up a guitar and plays along. Watling
pours me another glass of Forty Mile. I notice that the
glacier ice in my glass hasn’t melted. “So what’s the
deal with this place?” I ask. “Why would you come
here to heli ski instead of other places?” He takes a
sip and gestures closer to me, “Stuff the heli skiing,”
he says, “You know what it’s about? It’s about F-U-N.
That’s what we do.”
I finish my drink and gesture my thanks to Watling
across the bar. He’s over pouring someone else a
drink and entertaining some guests and doesn’t see
me. I let it go. On the way out I pass the Johnny
Cash sign at the entrance. I stop there for a moment.
“What Would Johnny Cash do?” it reads. Now I
think I understand.
THE SKIING OUT OF STEWART IS BIG GLACIERS AND MASSIVE BOUNDLESS TERRAIN WHILE BELL 2 IS AN EXPANSE OF
RIDGELINES THAT ARE ALL IN PLAY. SUZ GRAHAM ENJOYING ONE OF THOSE RIDGELINES IN BELL 2.

A Home Move Like No Other
Are you considering moving house? Home Move Consultants aim to make
your relocation a stress-free experience.
The Home Move Consultants
A recent poll stated that 37% of business professionals would be willing to
relocate anywhere in the world in order to chase their professional dream. Some
may also be considering a lifestyle change, moving from bustling city to pastures
green. Home Move Consultants recognise that whilst location change may be
coveted by many individuals, it is also hugely time consuming and stressful. It
doesn’t have to be. Home Move Consultants offer a high-end management service
that is more than just a relocation service. Offering bespoke packages that are
tailored to each individual, Home Move Consultants can manage as little or as
much of the process as you’d like. Giving you more time to concentrate on your
personal and professional life – the things that matter. The devil is very much in
the detail and Home Move Consultants offer an extensive personalised package.
The company is the brainchild of Deborah Robinson and Charlotte Hepworth, two
experienced business owners with a passion for delivering bespoke luxury service.
Between them they have many years’ experience of building individual client
contracts and project management. Their plethora of connections with high-end
estate agents, interior designers and removalists, provide clients with a secure,
reliable network of professionals that offer complete peace of mind.
The actual act of relocation is separated into three phases - pre-move, moving day
and post-move. Home Move Consultants will assist with the staging of a house
pre-sale. They will also initiate pre-move quotes from removal companies, as well
as acquiring appropriate storage facilities. When the day of the move arrives, a full
house move management, including administration and coordination of
contractors is undertaken. Home Move Consultants take great pride in their
dedicated, service led approach. So much so, that if you and your family wish to
escape the whole moving process and enjoy a weekend away, Home Move
Consultants can guarantee that on your return all furniture will be in place, beds

in your new home. Home Move Consultants want you to relax and actually enjoy

Citizenship by Investment
Say Hello to Freedom
Citizenship is something that cannot be chosen at
birth. However, nowadays investing in an alternative
passport can be a powerful tool. Nationality can oblige
as well as privilege, and taxation can be a serious cut in
earnings. Therefore, acquiring a second passport has
become an indispensable deal for businessmen and
entrepreneurs all around the world. While some
programs offer the possibility of gaining citizenship in
exchange for an approved business or real estate
investment as well as including the whole family
members, some more affordable options are possible by
making a contribution to a government development
fund starting from US$ 100,000.
Depending on requirements, Caribbean and European
passports can give access to more than 120 countries
including the UK, EU's Schengen area, Hong Kong,
and Singapore. Traveling, healthcare, education are
only some tangible attributes, the real value of this
investment is security. Citizenship by investment is a
way of solving problems and gaining profits; a deal
that allows to obtain a second nationality in a matter
of months and improve life for the better. It is a
purchase of splendor available for the lucky few.

carriage ride in the central park or some New York see-sight or Music
Hall events and concerts.
Speaking of the devil, some of us need a break every once in a while.
Especially for those who are looking for an inspirational travel. The
perfect destination to see the legendary Santa Clause town, where
16th and 17th century houses are strung with lights in early December.
Consider lingering through New Year`s Eve for champagne and fireworks
in the Nieuwmarkt or Dam squares.
December is the perfect season for tourists who are visiting Munich for
the first time. Winter in the Bavarian capital means a hundred-foot-tall
Christmas tree in the Marienplatz, about two dozen Christmas markets with
mulled wine and gingerbread, served on a tram that crosses the old city.
Don`t forget to attend the live holiday music on the balcony of the town
hall. Worth seeing!

Try to book at the opulent Cipriani Hotel that is available during the
holidays. For more intimate experience, consider Ca` Pisani, a boutique
hotel with a vaguely futuristic look.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE
This brand-new Sunseeker luxury 86 yacht could be your ticket to a new way of life. Fancy taking it for a spin?
A taste of the high life
Ever wondered what it would be like to own a luxury motoryacht?
Well, now you can try one on for size, thanks to the Sunseeker Experience
ACCORDING to the uninitiated,
there are only two types of boat
owner—those who pretend they
enjoy getting cold, wet and sea sick, and
those that are too busy tearing up £50
notes to notice. The reality couldn’t be further
from the truth. A modern Sunseeker
motoryacht has more in common with
a top-spec Range Rover or a handcrafted
English shotgun than the crude boats of
yesteryear. Built in the UK by skilled craftsmen
and equipped with everything from
underfloor heating to powerful stabilisers
that keep the boat steady, regardless of sea
conditions, it’s a true home from home.
The comparison to a holiday home
becomes ever more apt, as more and
more Sunseeker customers are forsaking
holiday villas and weekend country
cottages in favour of life afloat, either in
the UK or the Mediterranean. And now,
thanks to Sunseeker London, COUNTRY LIFE
readers have the chance to sample that lifestyle
The Sunseeker Experience isn’t a conventional
boat charter—it’s an opportunity to
put yourself in the shoes of an actual
Sunseeker owner. Whether it’s to impress
business clients as you wine and dine your
way around the Isle of Wight on a beautiful
new Sunseeker 86 yacht, or an unforgettable
means of celebrating a special
birthday or anniversary with friends and
family in the Channel Islands, on board the
latest Sunseeker Manhattan 52, perhaps,
the experience can be tailored to your exact
needs. Sunseeker can even organise helicopter
transfers to and from the yacht,
arrange world-class chefs to cook for you
and put the yacht’s extensive fleet of jet
tenders and watersports toys at your disposal.
You can have it all. You just have to
decide where and when.
The reason this experience gives such
a unique insight into actual ownership is
because it’s the brainchild of Sunseeker
yacht owners Nigel and Gemma Harris.
They had originally planned to by a second
home after years of hard work. The trouble
was that they both had very different ideas
about what to buy and where.
Above: Farewell, Blighty. From the Isle of
Wight and straight on ’til morning. Right:
Nigel Harris bought his first Sunseeker
yacht last year and has never looked
back. Below right: James Brooke of the
Sunseeker Academy, Lymington. Below:
Sunseeker will even organise a worldclass
chef, so you can give your family
and friends the trip of their lives
‘You can have
it all. You just
have to decide
where and when’
‘Gemma wanted a classic thatched cottage
and I wanted a modern glass box,’
explains Nigel. ‘We couldn’t even decide
whether we wanted to be in Cornwall,
Devon or Lymington. But the one thing
we both agreed on is that we wanted to be
near the sea.’
To overcome the impasse, Nigel suggested
they consider buying a boat instead;
that way, they could enjoy an even closer
connection with the sea and explore the
whole of the British coastline rather than
being restricted to one location. After some
research, they ended up at Sunseeker
Poole’s office to investigate the options.
‘The broker, James Lumley, took us
through the range starting with the
Portofino 40, then moved up to the
Manhattan 55 and 66,’ says Nigel. ‘I fell in
love with them all. The only one he wouldn’t
show us was the 76 yacht, which he said
would be too big for the UK. From that
moment on, I was determined to prove him
wrong, even if it took some convincing just
to show me the 76, let alone sell it!’
Far from being daunted by the prospect
of owning such a large motoryacht, Nigel
threw himself into learning everything
he needed to know to run it safely. Regular
sessions with James Brooke at the
Sunseeker Academy in Lymington brought
him up to speed with driving, handling and
maintaining it so that, by the time their new
76 yacht was delivered, in May 2016, he and
Gemma were able to cruise from Weymouth
to London with confidence.
By that stage, Gemma was pregnant with
their first child, but despite some initial
concerns about how they’d cope with a baby
on board, it soon became apparent their
new daughter was just as happy at sea
as on land.
In fact, their decision to buy a boat
rather than a second home proved so successful
that, before the year was out, they’d
already traded up from the 76 to a brand
new 86 yacht, delivered in May this year.
Now, having enjoyed their own conversion
to boating, they are keen to entice others.
Those interested should discard any
preconceptions they may have had about
owning a boat and give Sunseeker London
a call to discuss a perfect day out on the
water. It could be the start of something

Q & A WITH VISION ADVISORY CEO
Why and how did you get into financial industry?
Ever since I graduated from Polytechnic, I aspired to be an
entrepreneur. After assessing my option at age 21, I took my
first step. I decided to take the insurance path back in January
1992 and never looked back. Since then, I am constantly
motivated by my clients’ appreciation for my financial advice
and personalized solutions.
Over the years, the financial industry has evolved along with
more stringent regulations to enhance the professionalism of
the financial planning career; I, too, evolved by continuing my
professional education through the Financial Planning
Association of Singapore (FPAS) in the financial planning
industry to achieve the highest professional qualification,
Certified Financial Planners (CFP) qualification in Y2005.
After years of agency building, I have a group of more than 110
Financial Planners and Agency Leaders under the brand name
of Vision Advisory Group providing financial advice and
holistic range of financial solutions to cater to the needs and
wants of our clients for wealth protection, accumulation,
management and distribution at different stages of life.
