Making a few deals while playing 18 holes on a lush course in the heart of Long Island Wine Country is not a bad way to start the work week.
And that’s how about 100 real estate power players spent their Monday — at The Real Deal’s third annual golf outing at the Baiting Hollow Golf Club in Baiting Hollow, N.Y.
Brokers, lawyers, bankers and developers on both the commercial and residential sides came together for a lot of fun — and a little business.
From the pro shop to the driving range, the consensus was that the market is “very active,” as Michael Signet of Bond New York put it, and “somewhat frantic and very eclectic,” in the words of Eric Anton of Brookfield Financial.
The power players teed off for a game of scramble. After a few raindrops and more than a few missed shots, three teams came out on top.
Bank of America Home Loans — David Axelrod, Gerard Lynch, Matt Keller and Jim McPartland — walked away with the win. Second place went to the Douglas Elliman team of Jon Evans, Tom Drew and Michael Constantine. Coming in third was Rapid Realty’s Gabriel Chapman, Simon Day and Tyler Evenson.
