Welcome to Ten, CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher’s rapid-fire interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to find out how this week’s subject deals with being in the hot seat.

Sean McGinley is a part of CORE’s Jarrod Guy Randolph team, who has quickly made a name for himself as a determined and intelligent real estate professional. Coming from small town beginnings, Sean’s love of the big city and Manhattan real estate has helped him make the leap from CORE intern to a successful real estate agent in a short amount of time. Here are Sean’s answers to Ten questions:

Sean McGinley TEN1. What did you do before you found this career?
From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be involved in real estate.  I remember being 12 years old, and I was riding bikes with my uncle through the most luxurious neighborhood on Kiawah Island, SC during a family beach trip. My uncle was a real estate broker, so he had a lot of insight on the beautiful homes in the area. On that day I decided that if I didn’t make it to the NBA, I wanted to be involved in high-end real estate!

2. What has been the highlight of your career?
Being brought on by Jarrod Guy Randolph was definitely the highlight of my career. I started at CORE as an intern and after a few months, I was recommended for an interview with Jarrod. I am incredibly fortunate to be a member of his team. Jarrod’s drive is contagious, and his extensive knowledge of the market has rubbed off on me so much that I already feel like a seasoned veteran.

3. What is your greatest daily challenge?
My greatest daily challenge is finding enough time in the day to complete everything. However, the recent addition of veteran agent Chris Dominiak to our team has been incredibly helpful.

4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I have a lot of goals for my next 10 years. I hope to follow in Jarrod’s footsteps and be named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for real estate. I am very interested in new development, particularly boutique conversions like Seven Harrison and 46 Lispenard, so in 10 years I see myself working on my first new development project.

5. Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in the incredible work ethic of this city. It sounds cheesy, but until you live here there is no way to understand the energy that you get from the people and your surroundings. (more…)

Welcome to Ten, CORE founder and CEO Shaun Osher’s rapid-fire interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to find out how this week’s subject deals with being in the hot seat.

One of CORE’s most lovable and knowledgeable brokers, Lee Frankel’s unconventional career path led him to the exciting and ever-evolving field of real estate. A lover of all things New York, Lee’s thoughtful approach to real estate transactions has contributed to his success and growth here at CORE. Here are Lee’s answers to Ten questions:

1. What did you do before you pursued a career in real estate? Lee
I am a glass artist and for 10 years prior to my becoming a broker, I was privileged to have studied and worked at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, as well as in Venice, Italy. Prior to that, I was in the commercial printing and advertising business. We specialized in printing and packaging for the music and publishing industries.

2. What has been the highlight of your career?
Within a five-week time period, I received three phone calls from three different people that I had met years prior but never did business with. They all remembered me, kept my contact information and called me to say that they were having difficult times closing deals on properties they were interested in purchasing and wanted to inquire about us working together. Of course, I was flattered to be remembered in such a positive light and gladly accepted the opportunity. I am happy to say that I closed all three of those deals and the satisfaction of accomplishment is truly among my most gratifying real estate experiences to date.

3. What is your greatest daily challenge?
Making today more productive and successful than yesterday. Being able to say that I contributed to and added value in the world instead of just taking from it. (more…)

After a successful career in politics, Michael Bartlett decided to transition to the world of real estate and hasn’t looked back since.  With an innate ability to read the needs of clients, Michael’s love for all things real estate is shown in each of his transactions.  Here are Michael’s answers to Ten questions:

I worked in politics and lobbying in Washington, D.C. I was a professional staff member for the House of Representatives Committee and later became a lobbyist at a boutique firm, advocating for various companies, industries, non-profit organizations and individuals.

2. What has been the highlight of your career?

There have been several highlights, but I think the most significant highlight of my real estate career was the marketing and sale of the former Embassy of Thailand, which was originally built and occupied by Dwight Davis, the founder of the Davis Cup International Tennis Championship. It took me somewhere in the neighborhood of three months and several appointments to finally obtain the listing.

3. What is your greatest daily challenge?

Managing myself and my time in an effort to balance my personal and professional lives, while also pushing myself to go beyond what I thought was possible. (more…)
