In six short months, Marc Lawrence and Ruanna Sakols' REIN NY, LLC has made the New York real estate community turn heads and take notice. REIN recently held its fourth event, a cocktail party at Taj II in Chelsea. The event was attended by 160 senior level real estate professionals who had the opportunity to meet some of the people who are making the biggest real estate deals today. The large turnout further indicates that the area real estate market has picked up more velocity in 2012.
Max Dobens of Prudential Douglas Elliman who was recently promoted to executive vice president and manager of the firm's Waverly Place office, said "Last night's REIN event was a great opportunity to reconnect with those industry people that I haven't seen in a while but also a great time to meet new people in the financial, legal and brokerage segments of the NY real estate industry. I even got a lead at the event, imagine that?"
Johnson Capital managing director Dan Lisser said "The REIN event on Tuesday brought together real estate professionals. I was able to see old contacts and meet a few potential new clients in a fun yet professional setting. REIN works hard at attracting a diverse group of real estate professionals and guides them to help each other, kudos to Marc Lawrence and the other founders of REIN."
The event was sponsored by American Land Title, Emerald Creek Capital, Flushing Savings Bank, Cassin & Cassin LLP and Adina Equities.
