While we all love luxury real estate and New York’s high-end stores and restaurants and many of us are fortunate to experience this luxury level of living, each day as we wake, go to work, have fun, watch a show, there are 8 million other people in this great city of ours who are “Keeping it Real”. Like all of us, they go about their days doing their job and making a difference.
Every week I have the fortune of going in and out of luxury homes and buildings. In between I may be in my Uber or a Taxi or if traffic is a bear, the subway. When I pause to look up from my phone, there are people everywhere – from all nations and cultures around me.
It is the people of New York which makes New York so amazing and gives it its unique energy and style. People come here many times for a new life. With hope from all walks of life and all nations they come here – we come here to make a difference. It’s what inspires me each day – if I can make a positive difference in my clients’ lives and help them realize their real estate dreams, then I can feel I was able to give them the gift of moving into the next chapter of their lives smoothly, and with confidence.
New York inspires me every day to be better, to grow and to give back. So here’s my debut of New York Fridays – A tribute to this great city, its people and places. It may be a moment to share a photo, a video, a story of someone I’ve met that week. Or perhaps you may want to share your photo or story? This 2 minute video clip made me smile with joy – for it reminded me of how I fell in love with New York in 1985, on a visit from college to the city for an interview. As I walked out of Grand Central the buzz of the city and its people caught me by surprise. I never looked back. I hope this video will make you smile and fill your Friday with joy. It has mine.
