Nothing Is More Real Than The RealReal Shopping Experience

Since the advent of modern technologies, people can purchase, order, and shop from the convenience of their homes or electronic devices. There are online websites that embody the entire shopping experience. A recent concept to the online shopping industry is that of consignment shops. In recent years the RealReal has taken the world by storm. The founder and Chief Executive Officer of the RealReal, Julie Wainwright, started the concept as an online consignment boutique that sold luxury designer clothes for women. It has since expanded to include accessories, watches, shoes, and men’s designer clothing. The concept of selling consigned, luxury, authenticated designer items grew into a lucrative business. The owner and partners in the RealReal consignment business opened the first brick and mortar boutique, and this idea grew just as rapidly.

The RealReal recently opened a classy boutique in Los Angeles, California. It is located in West Hollywood on Melrose Avenue. It is filled with all designer brands that have been authenticated by their team of experts. The new shop is very high tech, and eye catching. Many people have been awed to know that they were in a consignment boutique. The Los Angeles shop features a men’s store that has a sneaker dome. It also features a watch bar that carries rare, and designer watchers. The RealReal wants their customers to shop in relaxed comfort. Their services include fresh coffe and juices, and snacks. The authentication service can be done by appointment, or by coming to the store.

The new Los Angeles boutique also offers in store, or curbside drop off for consignees. This is the second store for the RealReal. The first has been a success since its opening a short time ago in the SoHo neighborhood of New York. Treasure hunters and luxury shoppers are delighted to find high end brands, in excellent condition, at a consignment boutiwue. The customers get quality, authentic merchandise for a fraction of what it would cost at designer stores. The RealReal will continue to grow, and expand as the desire for designer items grow. Step into a new world of shopping with the RealReal.

How Guilherme Paulus turned CVC around.

Guilherme Paulus remembers where CVC Brasil Operadora e Agência de Viagens S.A. has come from. This is a company that has been in existence since 1972 when he was only 24 years and all those years later not only is it revolutionizing service delivery in Brazil but is also the largest tour operator in Latin American. A company that could hardly get clients in its first nine years is today considered a national source of pride for Brazil and serves more than three million clients annually.

CVC Brasil Operadora e Agência de Viagens S.A. is one of the two companies that have made Guilherme Paulus a billionaire. He has been a consistent investor in the tourism sector, and it has paid off in the long run. His passion in the sector has driven him to inject more and more money into his companies continuously, and despite selling a majority stake at CVC Brasil Operadora e Agência de Viagens S.A to the Carlyle group, Guilherme Paulus still retains a substantial interest in the firm. He sold a 63 percent stake in 2009 for an estimated 420 million dollars something he probably never dreamt would happen. Read more about Guilherme Paulus on Crunchbase.


CVC has grown phenomenally given where it began. In the 70’s and 80’s the existing government regulations as well as the tough operating environment meant that the company was barely surviving. This state of affairs would, however, change when it got its first corporate client by the name Mercedes. The company’s executives had heard about CVC and had requested a quote on how much it would cost them to take the company employees for their annual tour. Guilherme Paulus was able to cut back on all the unnecessary expenses, and by the time he submitted his bid, it was the lowest. This would prove to be a turning point as he was able to kill two birds with one stone. He was able to get his first corporate client with was substantial to the company’s portfolio. He was also able to interact with executives who offered him perspective on how to get corporate clients. This would mark the start of the tremendous success that CVC is today.
