Suspended by CoStar

 

Yup, you read that right. Perlmutter Properties was suspended from having a CoStar account a couple of weeks ago, because I started QuantumListing.com. Even though they are two separate companies, there is something in the fine print of the CoStar agreement (and that agreement is written in the tiniest font imaginable, pretty much guaranteeing that no one ever reads it), that gives them the right to suspend a user who they perceive to be a competitor. 

So, if you are reading this, and have not joined QuantumListing.com yet, please do so, and add your listings if you have them!

#LetsGetSmart2018 Summary

 

For the last two years at ICSC RECon, Perlmutter Properties along with QuantumListing, Donovan Real Estate, Benbrooke, Gladstone Development, the Broker List and others, have hosted a speaker series on Wednesday.

If you’ve ever attended RECon, you know that most people use it as a travel day. In order to make the day productive and interesting for those remaining, we started the #LetsGetSmart speaker series. It is a great opportunity to hear about industry trends and network in a relaxed and intimate environment. This year, Howard Kline of CRE Radio & TV generously offered to video the talks, and even interviewed some of the speakers, which added a great new dimension to the event.

I encourage you to spend some time reading through the excellent summaries written by Ben Perlmutter, which you can find by clicking on the links in the QuantumListing blog post, #LetsGetSmart Keeps Getting Smarter. If you find any of them particularly interesting, watch the videos of the talks that are embedded in the respective summary articles.

A Testimonial

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

Giving Tuesday

Volunteer New York

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.
