Why Realtors Are Therapists Too The New York Observer Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon provide insight on the impact emotions play among buyers and sellers when dealing with real estate. “Feelings can get in the way for buyers and even cloud their decisions,” says Mickey. “As a realtor, you sometimes need to be the therapist or sounding board for what is happening elsewhere in a client’s life.”

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!

Two of CORE’s top-producing brokers Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon share a joyous backstage moment with their friend Barry Manilow after the opening night performance of his triumphant musical, HARMONY, at the Ahmanson in Los Angeles last week. Manilow, who famously sang “I Write the Songs,” composed the score for the show, with book and lyrics by his longtime collaborator, Bruce Sussman. HARMONY chronicles the lives of the first sensational boy band: six talented young men who came together in 1920s Germany and took the world by storm with their signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and uproarious stage antics. The Comedian Harmonists sold millions of records, starred in a dozen films and packed the houses of the most prestigious concert halls around the globe until the world they knew forever changed. Tom and Mickey have raved about this moving story, so if you’re in L.A., don’t miss the opportunity to see this show!
