Corcoran Sunshine, the industry leader in the planning, design, marketing, and sale of luxury residential new developments, recently held its annual awards celebration. Conducted virtually for the first time, the event was hosted by Corcoran Sunshine’s president, Kelly Kennedy Mack, and honored the team’s noteworthy achievements throughout 2020.
Included among the evening’s awards and award winners were:
· Sales Team of the Year: presented to the Waterline Square Sales Team, whose members include Joe Alvarez, Norma-Jean Callahan, Jordana Espinosa, Elizabeth Venter, and Sales Director Melissa Win. These team members generated the highest sales volume across the Corcoran Sunshine portfolio.
· Deal of the Year: awarded to Sales Director Richard Hicks, Rae Land, and Lori Valvano – for the $19.5 million sale of the penthouse at 25 Park Row. This transaction was especially interesting because the buyer had already intended to purchase in the building, but upgraded to a penthouse with outdoor space after the onset of the pandemic.
· The Innovation Award (Onsite): presented to the Lantern House Sales Team of Aaron Boudreaux, Tiffany Chen, Dan Cordeiro, Nicole Diaz, Shannon Hansen, Thomas House, Stephanie Mastronardi, Sharon Novotny, and Sales Director Donna Puzio. The team was honored for developing a successful one-on-one preview week in October, as well as a customized personal outreach strategy to engage potential buyers.
The awards marked the culmination of a remarkable year. Six of 2020’s top ten best-selling Manhattan new developments are represented by Corcoran Sunshine; namely Lantern House, The Park Loggia, Waterline Square, Fifteen Hudson Yards, 25 Park Row and 130 William. The firm added a seventh to their portfolio when they were tapped to assist in marketing One Manhattan Square. Corcoran Sunshine also represents 11 Hoyt in Downtown Brooklyn, top-selling building across New York City in 2020 – based on contracts signed.
Additionally, during 2020, the team successfully sold out The Greenpoint, Citizen360, 56 Leonard, and 21 East 12th Street. They achieved a record sale in the Financial District with the sale of the above-noted $19.5 million penthouse at 25 Park Row – and The Asbury Ocean Club penthouse sold for $5.5 million, the highest sales price ever in the historic seaside resort of Asbury Park, NJ.
“Despite the obstacles 2020 presented, we not only survived, we thrived. Corcoran Sunshine developed creative initiatives that kept business moving forward, no matter what,” said Mack. “I am incredibly proud of our achievements, and would like to give my heartfelt thanks to our team for their dedication – both to our firm and to New York City. I look forward to even more success as 2021 progresses.”
