I want to tell you about recent changes to our Listings Pages. Our listings are being served to the Perlmutter Properties website by QuantumListing.com. Until very recently, we were serving our listings by creating the listing pages directly on perlmutterproperties.com. This was fine, however, it resulted in less frequent updates to our listings because of a more cumbersome and expensive process that involved our getting in touch with our marketing person who then sent the changes to the coder.
Now, we can update our listings on the QuantumListing site, and they are automatically implemented on our site by using the sharing widget from our QuantumListing Profile page. There are also several ways that we can have our listings shown on the Perlmutter Properties website, and it only has our branding when you look at it.
We have a list view in which we’ve created a categorized list with links to each of our listings. When you click on the name of the listing, it brings you to a page specifically for that listing.
By using the listing report sharing widget, you can create pages for your listings by asset class, if the asset is for lease or sale, or by state (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut). It is very flexible, and the possibilities for how you choose to use these features are limitless.
Depending on your technical familiarity, comfort level and type of website you have, you may need to have your web consultant help you implement these different types of solutions. Perlmutter Properties website is built with WordPress, and with my limited ability, I have been able to copy the code from the widgets at QuantumListing.com and deploy it on Perlmutter Properties without outside help.
In addition to its ease of implementation, you’ll find that this is a very economical solution. QuantumListing offers this service as part of its regular Premium Membership, which is just $79.99/year for Individual users, or $899.99/year for Enterprise users.

The following letter was shared with me. It was written by Vincent Brown, who is opening up his first laundromat, to Andrew Bermudez, Co-Founder and CEO of Digsy and Digsy AI.
Dear Mr. Bermudez,
My name Is Vincent Brown. I’m writing you to make you aware of just how fortunate you all are to have David Perlmutter as a Digsy affiliate. Just last year I found myself in a very desperate situation to find a location to build out my very first laundromat. As a first time business owner I decided (wrongly) that it would be in my best interest to find a location for my business on my own. I searched every commercial real estate website I could find with absolute zero luck. After looking for several weeks my wife noticed how frustrated I was growing and decided to contact Digsy for help. Thank God She Did.
Within a matter of minutes my phone rang and a customer service rep told that I would soon be receiving a call from David. When David called he introduced himself very professionally and was extremely patient with me as I explained my situation. Honestly, It was his confidence that we would ultimately find the perfect location that put me at ease. He mentioned that he had a couple of locations in mind and was even willing to meet me in the freezing winter cold to check them out along with me. I was immediately impressed with his level of commitment to helping me and was doubly so when he followed though and met me on time as promised. From that day forward David continued to search for the perfect location.
He contacted renters, building managers, other realtors and even spoke with my contractors to make sure the space was exactly what I was looking for. Eventually as promised David found the perfect location, 906 St. Nicholas Avenue in upper Manhattan. He and my lawyer negotiated my lease terms perfectly. He made sure to address all of my concerns and even some I didn’t even know I had.
He even bothered to take time out of his busy day to talk me down when I was stressed about my business not going as expected. I respect David, mostly because he’s always told me the truth from day one. If he thought I could be making the slightest mistake he would let me know and I would listen to him because I truly believed he’s always had my best interest at heart.
Recently I asked David why it was that he took so much time out to make sure that my situation worked out correctly and his response was simply “ That’s what I do for all of my clients”. I can’t say that I wasn’t slightly disappointed that I wasn’t special, but I can say that I believed him. He’s just that great of a guy.
I first want to thank my wife for having enough sense to pick up the phone and call Digsy but I really want to thank you for having the smarts to employ such a professional. As a side note, my business will be open and running very soon, all is well and I owe a large percentage of the credit to your company and David Perlmutter.
Thank You So Very Much.
I Wish You Much Success In The Future

Thanks to Michael Grossman of MAG Real Estate Advisors for asking Perlmutter Properties to participate in Volunteer New York’s Giving Tuesday program. I’m looking forward to getting my hat this morning (picture coming?). My parents and grandparents set an example for me as a kid about the importance of giving back to your community. As a student in college, my favorite economics courses were the ones on the economics of lesser developed countries. One of the principles I learned then and that motivates me in how I choose to give back is that a society’s greatness is judged on the wellbeing of its least advantaged members.
One of the many great things about my father, Milton Perlmutter, is that he saw how important it was to give people the tools to better their lives. He believed that the highest form of charity was to help people to help themselves. Of all his many business accomplishments, I think that he was most proud of bringing Pathmark supermarkets to underserved communities like Bedford-Stuyvesant. Although I don’t think I’ve had that kind of life-changing impact that bringing quality food to at a competitive price to these food deserts had, I’ve always thought it important to take on listings in under-retailed communities to help bring goods and services to their members.
So, whether it is raising scholarship money to help fulfill the dreams of kids who can’t otherwise afford college, or filling needs in an underserved community, there is always an opportunity to lift up society by helping those who need it most.
Perlmutter Properties will be exhibiting at the ICSC New York National Deal Making on December 7th and 8th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. We’ll be in Booth 368, which we are sharing with Benbrooke, Admiral Real Estate, and QuantumListing.
