    To All Members,

    We had a fantastic event last night and thank you to all who joined.   A special thank you to Frank Liantonio for arranging use of the C&W event space and coordinating an impressive array of hors d’oeuvres.  I am also very pleased to say that to date we have had strong support and have collected 18 of 45 annual membership dues.  If you have not paid yet, please forward your checks to our Trustee and Secretary Mr. Gary Rufrano at 89 5th St, Garden City.

    I have a few "selfies" I took last night for our new website... shout out to Sal Ciaravino, Trustee and Membership Chair for coordinating this great new feature!!! Sal will be sending a separate email outlining the website's features and how to access information through your personal log-ins.

    Finally, if any of the Members have thoughts on a special Charitable Foundation that GCRE can support at this year's Annual Fundraiser (October 2019), please submit to your thoughts/ideas to Frank Liantonio, Our Trustee and Chairperson of the Charitable Committee or to the Co-Chairs, Ms. Lauren Scarantino or Ms. Amanda Kinney.

    Thank you again and looking forward to seeing everyone again very soon.

    Our next event will be held in Garden City for convenience when the weather breaks.  More details on this upcoming “Special” event to follow…..you will NOT want to miss it.

    As we begin 2019 and prepare for our first Member Event on February 28th, I want to thank everyone for your support, participation and sincere interest in promoting good will and financial assistance to Village residents of Garden City and the important causes GCRE supports.  2019 promises to be a rewarding, and FUN time for our Members and the Board of Trustees looks forward to working with everyone as we prepare for our Annual Fundraising Gala set for October 2019 supporting Mollies Fund of Garden City.

    To continue the expansion of the Foundation and its philanthropic efforts the Board of Trustees have taken steps for 2019 to increase Foundation awareness, provide value to our existing and future members and focus on efficient ways to raise money and support worthy causes effecting residents of Garden City.  .

    • The Board intends to continue coordinating our exclusive networking / social events and have planned three (3) such events for this year………….the first is set for February 28th.  
    • In addition to the three (3) social events planned, GCRE will hold its annual gala fundraising event this October supporting the Mollies Fund of Garden City
    • All Members will be included in our professional membership directory where high level introductions are encouraged amongst our membership
    • The Board is in the process of establishing a scholarship committee to raise funds, establish criteria, and ultimately select candidates for these sponsorships. (anyone interested in Chairing the Committee please let me know)

    Over the past 2 years, the Board of Trustees has funded the costs of operating the Foundation, today we need your help.  We have established an annual membership fee of just $250.00 to help cover administrative costs and hope that you can support this.  


    Finally, the Board has appointed Trustee Sal Ciaravino as the Membership Chairperson.   Membership is open to those persons our Members feel would be a welcome addition to our group, are current residents of Garden City and are active in the commercial real estate business in any facet.   Please pass this information onto your relatives and neighbors directly or simply send the contact information to Sal and he will follow up directly.  Sal can be reached at gcrepf@gmail.com


    We hope you will join us in achieving our goals, successes and mission to help others and on behalf of the Board of Trustees, we thank you for all of your past and future support.

    To All Members,

    A little company promotion for MRA (see link below)

    MRA plans turnaround at Macy's department store

    Good deal sourcing is difficult these days.   It takes lots of energy and creativity to be successful.   This MACYS is connected to a brand new outdoor life style mall developed 5 years ago by Simon Properties, it’s a really beautiful project.  Through contacts and close relationships I was able to secure a major tenant to lease the entire ground floor of what will be a VACANT BOX while in contract which made this deal financeable in an otherwise “tricky” retail environment.  

    The message is; hard work and track record always pays off, but relationships are critical to your business success. Let’s remember to use the relationships we are forming at the GCRE to help raise money for great causes and create new bonds amongst our members that can be helpful to our careers in the future.

    For those of you who may have been out of town for the long weekend and just catching up, GCRE got some nice press in this past Friday’s GC NEWS highlighting our successful Cocktails For a Cause Charity event at the Garden City Hotel on Friday, October 19th to benefit Charlies Champions Foundation. 

    Thank you to everyone for a job well done!
