Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon Hosting the Bailey House Gala Auc

Mickey and I have always been aware of the great work that Bailey House does in New York City to help those affected by HIV/AIDS, and we certainly understand the importance of helping people to find a suitable and comfortable home – especially when that home is the only refuge from a difficult day of dealing with a debilitating illness. But, when we were approached to host the annual gala event this year at Chelsea Piers, we were especially honored. A new annual award was created this year to honor Jason Sheftell, the beloved New York Daily News real estate reporter who passed away suddenly at the age of 46 last summer. Jason was a beloved and supportive friend and someone we respected and admired for his passion for our industry. When we were invited to host the event, we didn’t pause for a moment before accepting. It was immeasurably rewarding for us to take part in this magical evening. We were delighted to finally meet Jason’s darling mother, Karen Sheftell. We now know exactly where Jason got his passion for life, real estate and all things New York City. Getting to know Karen, who is a real estate broker in Stamford, CT., was the icing on the cake of a very special and rewarding evening for us. We were proud to be hosts of this year’s event and look forward to being a part of the Bailey House family for years to come!

Last week, David Sanborn and his wife Sofia were kind enough to co-host a cocktail reception in their home at 135 West 69th Street, along with Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon, to benefit The March of Dimes. Currently on the market for $12 million, the couple’s 19-foot-wide townhouse is situated among the area’s most handsome row of brownstones, with several pristine original details included throughout. During the event, everyone got a kick out of checking out Dave’s recording studio, his collection of Grammys and gold records, and the 100 year old teddy bear the couple found in the walls during the renovation of their 1892 townhouse.  CORE CEO Shaun Osher and fellow broker Emily Beare were also in attendance, along with Million Dollar Listing: New York star Luis Ortiz, among other guests.

Several CORE agents recently attended a performance of The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.  A murder mystery-type play, this entertaining performance stars an elite cast of actors including Eric Purcell, featured in the 2010 film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.  This long-running production, now showing at The Clubhouse until November 9th, is presented by The Amateur Comedy Club, a not-for-profit theater group founded in 1884.

In the spirit of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon were tickled pink to support their friend, Lorna Luft, at Birdland last Monday night. The stage, film, and television actress, best-selling author, recording artist, and Emmy-nominated producer hosted Lorna’s Pink Party, two sold-out benefit events that raised over $120,000 for The Actors Fund’s Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and Tower Cancer Research Foundation’s Dr. Philomena McAndrew Fund. Lorna’s special guest star was her sister, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony-winning legend, Liza Minnelli. It had been 20 years since the two sisters performed together, the last time being their memorable duet for the 1993 Tony Awards.

241 5

For the second time in two weeks, one of CORE’s most desirable new developments was used as the setting for a couture fashion photoshoot. On Thursday at the site of CORE’s new residential development, 241 Fifth, expert photographer Haley Ballard captured an incredible catalog of photos of internationally renowned model Veronica Zoppolo from Uruguay.  Hairstylist Ezel Mustafa and make-up artist Margret Avery did an excellent job in creating a beautiful, modern aesthetic in the model’s style that matched the contemporary and chic backdrop for the couture shoot which included pieces from the fall 2013 Marchesa, Christian Siriano and Dior collections. This brand new, luxurious, 2,706-square foot 15th floor penthouse in the heart of NoMad  proved to be ideal for this luxury fashion shoot.
