The President of our firm, Fred Peters, asked this week in his blog “What are YOU thankful for?” I pause, breathe and think I have many things to be thankful for. I’m a homeowner for the first time in my 30 year career in real estate. I have an amazing job and work for an incredible man, partnered with a fabulous management team who want only the best for our agents. Oh and of course the office I go to five days a week in the heart of Tribeca, where I am fortunate to work with a talented group of agents, who not only have the utmost respect for one another, but also for this business we call real estate. I am truly proud of each and every one of them and wish them continued success always. And I have recently been appointed Co-chair of the Real Estate Board of New York’s Downtown Committee.
I take a tremendous amount of pride in knowing I have helped to cultivate and nurture our relationships in the Tribeca community, from producing our Annual Halloween Event for the kids in our neighborhood (see attached photo), to our art venues with local artists from the downtown community in our offices with a rotation every quarter along with the students of PS150 who contribute their artwork for our window displays.
I am reminded of how blessed we are to be working in such a lovely part of New York City, that is also home to many of our agents. I have an incredible family and beautiful friends and as I continue to deepen my yoga and meditation practice I am reminded of the limitless possibilities life and this fabulous city have to offer.
