After the disappointing call  this morning that I had not won the lottery, it was off to the Victory Boulevard Business Improvements Meeting over at Shamrock Paints. What a great group of business owners; Jimmy from Jimmy’s Fine Jewelry, Annie from Risqué, Anthony from Alphonso’s, Pete from Shamrock Paints, Nino from the Barbershop, Loretta from the West Brighton LDC, and so many others. Planning stages for many events for the Westerleigh, Castleton Corners and Staten Island communities to bring awareness to shop locally. Great success we’ve had with the Halloween Stroll, The Christmas Tree lighting, and Spring Stroll coming up with the 4th of July extravaganza. Leaving there to meet an appraiser over on Hylan Boulevard to complete a transaction for mortgage purposes, then off to Westerleigh to show a multiple dwelling. I’ll pop back into the office for a moment to ready for a home inspection by Master Home Inspections as we ready to take that property to contract. Then at 3:30, slipping into my blue suede stiletto shoes and having my hair done at Risque on Victory Boulevard for the all important Staten Island Board of Realtors New Officer Installation this evening, of which I am a past board member for eight years, Frank was the past President in 2007, current board member, and newly elected Vice President of the Staten Island Multiple Listing System. The evening was a great success, and included a quick photo-op at the world famous Coliseum! Fran & Frank @ SIBOR Installation 2016

Congratulations Claire, our newly elected President. Kudos to Staten Island Board of Realtors staff for the great job they did in putting the Installation Dinner together. To the Sponsors of the event, including Freedom Mortgage, Vanguard Funding, Sak and Rampulla, BCB Staten Island Community Bank, Empire State Bank, and US Mortgage. Your support is always appreciated.


Please keep in mind from January 1 – March 30, Kiwanis is collecting gently used and new shoes (for both underprivileged adults and children). If you would like to be a part of this wonderful cause, please deliver them in plastic bags, rubber-banded in pairs, to 1958 Victory Boulevard, our Safari Real Estate Office. And remember, It’s Always a Woman’s Right to Shoes!
