Our New York office has a team of Make-A-Wish volunteers who have helped pool resources from across our industry through the Metro New York Chapter’s Real Estate Council. Make-A-Wish calls on the Real Estate Council whenever a construction-related wish comes up, which was the case with Romeo. A talented artist who has autoimmune polyglandular syndrome, Romeo wished to make over his bedroom into a cool space where he can do his artwork, play video games and hang out with friends. Led by Structure Tone and Eric DeSimone of Savanna Funds, the Real Estate Council went to work, replacing the carpet with new wood flooring, painting and adding new lighting, new furniture and a brand-new flat screen TV. Structure Tone’s Tom Lynch supervised the project while Karly O’Brien monitored all the costs and material procurement. Tom, Karly, Kaicer Gaona, Jr, Mike Caroselli, Kevin Mulvey and Dan Finnegan all then pitched in to install all the pieces and make the transformation complete.
