Is an incredibly powerful motivator.
And I thank everyone who has given it to me.
A short story:
Almost six years ago, I sat on a rooftop garden on Fifth Avenue, and shared a drink with Nick Bienstock and Chris Schlank from Savanna Partners. They had recently gone into contract for 141 Fifth Avenue and were proceeding with the conversion of this magnificent building. CORE was a young company. A new company, with no history or track record. And as we sat there, I asked them to entrust us with the marketing and sales of their project. They obliged, and last week, after a journey together, we closed on the final unit. I thank Nick and Chris (and the rest of their team) for their trust in our ability and I hope to return the favor one day. I trusted in their abilities as developers, and they delivered. This building will be a special home to a number of people who will hopefully realize their dreams.
When someone believes in you
It empowers you.
It feeds the human spirit.
And when it is mutual -
It is the foundation that can support the remarkable.
And that is priceless.
