|Last night, we stopped by Club 101 for NY Residential magazine's Top Women in Real Estate, its fourth annual awards recognizing residential and commercial crème de la crème. Publisher Lori Sokol(far right) with the honorees: (standing) HLW's Susan Boyle, JFK&M Consulting's Cindy Feinberg, Gotham Developers' Melissa Pianko, The Cheshire Group's Susan Hewitt, Sorgente Group's Veronica Mainetti, The Argo Corp.'s Lynn Whiting, Borah Goldstein's Harriet Polinsky,Hudson Land Co.'s Wendy Craft, Africa Israel USA's Lori Ordover; (seated) MLBKaye International Realty's Marilyn Kaye, and Prudential Douglas Elliman's Faith Hope Consolo. Also honored: Trump's Ivanka Trump, Manhattan Mortgage Co.'s Melissa Cohn, Brown Harris Steven's Paula Del Nunzio, andGuzov Ofsink's Allison Scollar.|
|Wait, who's the lucky man in the first photo? It's MLBKaye's Lewis Kaye, honored as the “Male Pioneer of the Year,” unbeknownst to him—he thought he was just there to celebrate wife Marilyn's achievement (“totally flabbergasted” was his reaction). Lewis sees women for their talent and intelligence, not their gender, Marilyn says, as one of the first in real estate to hire women and promote them to executive positions. Lori holds the event to recognize significant accomplishments in a male-dominated field. She says everyone benefits by partnering with a strong woman.|
|Keynoting was MotherstoMothers founder Pamela Parlapiano, a photographer who's traveled the world taking photos of disadvantaged people. She learned about the power of a home and sustainable communities while in India, and is now working to bring childcare and education facilities to places where mothers have zero options besides working, she says. Her next goal is building a 100-child day-care in Ethiopia, and Lori surprised her with a check from last night's proceeds, as well as a painting auction, to help her realize her dream.
