Geoff Bailey joined SCG Retail as a Brooklyn-focused broker. He was previously at TerraCRG. … Robert Frischman, founder of JDF Realty, has been appointed to the newly created position of executive vice president of retail at EVO Real Estate Group. … Miron Properties has hired Kathleen McEldowney, previously with the Dressler Group, as an agent. … Bond New York has hired Julie Souef, formerly of Citi Habitats, and James Kogut, formerly of DSA Realty, as sales agents.


Manhattan broker and “Selling New York” star Sabrina Kleier-Morgenstern and husband Rob Morgenstern have welcomed their second child.

Baby Cate, or Catie, was born on Oct. 28, weighing in at six pounds, 13 ounces. Kleier-Morgenstern said the couple almost named her Juliette. “We filled it out on the birth certificate and everything, but just couldn’t call her that,” she said.

The couple couldn’t break the family streak of C-names. Their son is Cooper, and Kleier-Morgenstern’s sister, Samantha, has a Chase and a Caroline.

Kleier-Morgenstern said she’s already back to work, though isn’t going to the office regularly. “Most of my clients don’t even know I gave birth, because I’m on emails, the phone, and handling showings when I need to,” she said.

Allen Kasden is retiring from Plaza Construction after 12 years with the company and 43 years in the construction industry. Kasden’s career highlights include overseeing the MTA’s Fulton Street Transit Center, Gateway Center at Bronx Terminal Market, and the Shops at Atlas Park.
