What a fast quarter! I feel time flies even quicker these days. From a new POTUS, to Snapchat going public, what a time to be alive. New York City has especially seen some pretty remarkable events. From the opening of the Second Avenue Subway, to the record breaking number of protestors marching down Fifth Avenue, to Winter Storm Stella, it was all very interesting.
For us at Okada & Company, we too had a pretty remarkable quarter.
Here are the top 5 pretty awesome things that happened to us in the first quarter:
5. Supporting friend Paul Massey on his Mayoral Run
Paul Massey Is Running For Mayor!! We had a chance to meet up with a friend of our firm Paul Massey in a private fund raiser at the New York Athletic Club on January 9th. He's a good guy with lots of ideas. Good Luck Paul!
4. Hello ClickPay Good Bye Roku | 45 West 34th Street
It's the circle of real estate life. Entertainment and hardware provider Roku has left the building. They were a great tenant at 45 West 34th Street, but as our occupancy is over 95% we couldn't give them the extra space they needed. However, we're super excited to have signed up internet company ClickPay as one of our newest tenants. ClickPay a subsidiary of NovelPay is a service provider to landlords and makes paying rent and HOA fees a cinch. Credit is due to Dana Moskowitz & Richard Price at EVO Real Estate Group for handling the leasing there. Congrats all around.
3. 50th Transaction With Falcon Properties
In March of 2017, Okada & Company completed its 50th lease transaction with Falcon Properties. The business relationship started in 2006, a time when Falcon Properties did not work with other real estate firms. After some convincing they opened doors to our book of clients and the rest is history. Congratulations & Thank You to everyone at Falcon Properties!
2. Third Time Selling 256 west 15th Street
Selling a property in Chelsea is always great. But selling it three times in a 3.5 year time span? Now that's rare! I wrote about it briefly here however, the key thing to note is that every time it sold, it was profitable.
1. OUR NEW WEBSITE!
Our last website was created in October of 2009. It's truly remarkable how much has changed in New York, in the United States, and in Technology. Our newest update tells a better story of our history, our accomplishments, and our value propositions.
