On Thursday, May 23rd, CORE Madison Avenue’s second “Walking Tour” gave agents the opportunity to gain a deeper insight of their surrounding neighborhood. Since opening its doors last month, the Madison Avenue agents remain committed to staying current on the intricacies of nearby buildings and their histories. Already well in-tuned with the Upper East Side, this walking tour took agents back to Park Avenue, where, once again, each of them were assigned to a new building to become familiar with the purpose to educate one another along their route.
“As the number one mid-sized firm in Manhattan, we are able to go out on the streets and learn,” said Reba Miller, the Director of Sales of CORE Madison Avenue. “This is what sets CORE apart from larger firms which don’t have the ability to do things like this.”
Participating agents included Lee Frankel, Romina Frecha, Blu Kokin, Keren Ringler, Stephen Gallagher, Jarrod Randolph and Alison Abovsky who explored buildings including 565 Park, 625 Park and 710 Park. One interesting trend that appeared throughout the tour was that famed 20th century architect, J.E.R. Carpenter, designed six out of the ten buildings showcased.
An informational recap at the end of the tour proved that the agents gained a great deal of knowledge from one another. “There’s never a limit to education, and CORE agents need to make sure they understand the history and real estate market in order to stay current, relevant and familiar,” noted Reba.
