What makes a person really tick? Just ask their real estate broker. People share everything with their brokers — their hopes, dreams, likes, dislikes, wants, desires and, of course, their financials. In fact, you could argue there’s no one more qualified to pair a single person up with the perfect mate than that person’s house hunter. With that in mind, and with Valentine’s Day approaching, CORE Managing Director Vickey Barron is setting out to prove that home truly is where the heart is. The Real Deal reports that Barron has teamed up with professional matchmaker Samantha Daniels for an event called “Love and Real Estate.” The invitation-only event, held at Barron’s listing at 256 West 10th Street, will include a group of her single clients as well as some of Daniels’. It’s not as crazy as it sounds.
Barron told TRD:
“I get to know buyers and sellers from working with them for three to six months,” she said. “So many of them are busy young professionals and [divorcees.] They’re all great and I just thought it would be great to put them all in a room together. I bring people and places together for a living, so what’s the difference between people and places and people and people?“
Who says business and pleasure can’t mix?
