It’s the second week of December, and I am back off to New York again, representing LMRE but also now the UKPA!! The London real estate scene has mostly switched off as silly season has begun, and everyone is just talking non-stop about the bloody election. So, I am ecstatic to be getting back to the Big Apple, and with the bonus that I have a whole row to myself on the plane to kick back, have a glass of red wine and catch up on some work.
This time I will be catching up with some friends I met at PropTech MIPIM, like Jonathan Mills from Osborne Clarke, Amira and Safi from the Metaprop team, but also new friends like Andrea Jang from JLL Spark, who was introduced via Leila Collins through the Pomegranate community.
Then Thursday is the big day, with an early start with a zoom with Omri from Get Jones, then a meeting with Eyal Reggev, at Stonehenge Management. Then hopping on a call with Natalia Karayan at Propy to chat through Propy’s journey and hear her experience. Next, I will be running off to meet with Matthew Boras at RXR Realty, then shooting off to meet Cindy Mclaughlin, CEO at Envelope City and a call with Jack from Latch. All these businesses I have been reading about and I can’t wait to learn more.
The big finale will be sponsoring Pomegranate’s Christmas Soiree. Pomegranate is a group of women from NYC, San Fran and LDN, started originally by the wonderful Leila. It is a community of women in real estate, investment and technology all coming together to share ideas and experiences, and I thought what better way to get to know everyone that an intimate Christmas party at a great Italian in East Village.
I am thrilled to be involved in the Pomegranate group, and it makes trips like this that much more enjoyable when your associates/clients become friends, plus a glass of wine always helps 😊. It’s also been a pleasure to be able to invite new friends I have met over the last few months being out in New York, Chloe at Equiem, Rachel at Join Digital and Allie at VTS.
Looking forward to catching up and celebrating 2019’s achievements, and anticipating what 2020 may bring!
Will update you with the events of the week and looking forward to meeting everyone!
