What was your most notable project, deal, transaction or professional achievement in 2017?
Genesis has been very busy on many fronts. We sold a bowling alley, leased up new construction in Farmingdale, sold an abandoned property on Veterans Hwy. to become a fitness center and, leased three properties for Family Dollar, opened a grocery stores in Brentwood and opened two Wendys (Islip and Brentwood). I would say they are all notable, some taking us a long time (years others much less).
What was the best decision you made in 2017 and why?
Take on projects that “make sense.” Years past I would be more willing to take on projects that need assemblies, variances, rezoning, etc. I am much more conservative of the battles I pick.
Who or what contributed to your success in 2017 and why?
My life long client base. I am proof, that loyalty, accountability and productive results is the way to success. I have always made sure to stay true to myself and our clients.
What trends will impact your business in 2018?
The growing need for multifamily on Long Island.
