Just want to say many thanks to all who responded with contacts!

Gotham Magic works again!


Many thanks to William Skody for meeting with me last year and recommending a few grassroots  NYC based nonprofit organizations.  One of the organizations William recommended, Culture For One, was recently approved to receive a grant from a philanthropy group I'm involved with.  We would never have known about this wonderful organization had it not been for William.

 

William is an excellent resource for anyone involved in the not-for-profit sector.  He is extremely knowledgeable and generous with his time!

 

Cheers,

Patty Bayer Troup

 


 

 

Why I love Gotham...

 

Last night at 10:30 I sent a request to fredslist regarding my need to speak with someone about a technical question I had about a NYC certificate of occupancy and a condo conversion.

 

8:50 am today Tom Gallin from Gotham Construction group sends me the name of an expeditor, Kevin McCreesh.   Spoke to Kevin, retained him for his consultation.  All before 10 am!

Kris Behrman was very helpful when I needed an Excel trainer for a group of people who were being laid off.


With his patience and “get it done” attitude, he was able to convey the essential elements of Excel to some rather challenging participants.

 

I strongly recommend Kris for your projects.

Best wishes,

Mindy Stern

 

 


 

A special Thank You to Jack Halpern for all he did in my Mom's final days.  If anyone has a parent or relative who is up there in age and you need any help at all he's the one.  Compassionate and caring that's Jack

 

Thank you Jack for just being there and knowing you can be called on helped.

Bill Skody has been helping my non-profit with its taxes since we incorporated, putting up with my ignorance and my tardiness, and has been as patient and professional as anyone can be. I am so extremely grateful for his assistance and guidance. Gotham really has some superstars and Bill is one of them!

 

THANKS A MILLION BILL!!

No one likes to come home with on a Sunday night from after a great birthday/Valentine weekend --to find out a pipe burst under your kitchen sink and flooded/destroyed your already finished basement.

 

I knew I couldn't do this alone. I texted Jason, knowing he might already be on vacation. Guess what--he was on vacation and handled everything, always on top of what was needed in regards to filing an insurance claim. While I was losing my mind, he also became my therapist.

 

Everything from top to bottom has been clear,concise and completed.

 

Should this happen to you, please don't hesitate to call Jason! His number is (646-425-3711). I also referred a dear friend and they are also very happy!

 

Thank you Fred, for introducing and recommending Jason to me .and Jason, I can't thank you enough!

A few months ago, I had an issue with my very old Panasonic phone system. Kris Behrman answered the call and solved my problem in MOMENTS!

 

For the past few weeks I have been having issues with Verizon and I emailed Kris.. He asked me the right questions and now i have some more questions for Verizon.   We are not done! But, if for any reason you have an issue with  electronic automated systems and controls, please run and give him a call. He is well versed in system design, installations, troubleshooting, and upgrades of many types of systems new and in my case old. I know I am not finished working with Kris.

 

If it is electronic, Kris can help.

Thank you Kris!!

A shout out for Hans Hansen!

When my foster daughter was told that she would not be receiving her student loan that I had co-signed for and Sallie Mae had accepted because her school “didn’t think she needed the money” (they didn’t even accept the amount that was her tuition!!) we were in a terrible place.  In her graduation semester, she was completely flipping out with no resources to deal with this and fearing her whole college so far would be for naught.

 

I immediately thought Gotham.  I called Hans and he called me right back.  Calmed us down.  Gave us sage advice.  And when I spoke to the finance office - funny - they realized they had “miscalculated” and she would be getting the money.

 

Praise the Lord and thank you Hans!!

Thanks to Leonard Khandros for helping! Leonard gave very simple, quick advice to help my son with his Landlord issue!

Here’s a thundering shout out for Corey Bearak, a true friend and embodiment of the Gotham Credo “it’s better to give than to receive and what goes around comes around.”

 

At dinner the other night I asked him for very specific introductions and since then he hasn’t stopped delivering. This is a man who knows the whole world, is eager to share and never stops giving.

 

He’s a gem; if you know him you will no doubt agree, and if you don’t you ought to get to know him! Thank you, Corey.

Last week, I needed to connect a client to an employment lawyer in Denmark.  Thank you to all who responded.

Anthony Verna, a member of our Dinner group, was able to make a personal introduction to a firm in Denmark that was exactly on target.  Because of Anthony, I was a hero to my client.

This network is awesome!

A few weeks ago, I reached out to Gotham for help.  I was hoping to be the most amazing Aunt and help my niece, Cate,  and her fiancé, Dustin, who were going to be visiting DC today  and wanted to visit the White House.

 

Bill Blanco responded with help and through his diligence and his wonderful son Billy, they arranged a private tour of the Capital (including behind the scenes where regular tours do not go!).

 

And of course Cate and Dustin absolutely loved the private tour and spending time with Billy who went above and beyond for them.

 

Bill and his son are true givers – they worked tirelessly to help create a special day for Cate and Dustin who just called me full of excitement to share how amazing it was and what an incredibly great guy Bill’s son, Billy is.

 

So  a success all around: my niece had a great time and I made a new friend in Gotham: Bill Blanco.

 

If you have not met Bill yet, do yourself a favor and make time to get to know him – he’s someone who embodies our philosophy of “it’s better to give than receive” so let’s help do good for Bill and think of him when we can use his services so he will see that “what goes around comes around.”

 

Bill can be reached at:

Work Phone: 646 898 3580

Thank you Bill and thank you Billy!

He responded last night after 11pm(!!) and promised to look into it.

Dan looked at the CARR support system and gave us the correct info/useful info by 8:22 am!!!

THANK YOU DAN!!!

For those of you who don’t know William Skody, of Skody Scot & Co., in addition to sponsoring multiple Gotham events, his firm provides accounting and tax services to non-profits.  I referred a non-profit client to him over the weekend and he was back to them this morning (before I woke up), confirming that he could handle their needs.  William is one of several great Gotham resources for non-profits.

I want to thank Crysti Farra for being so good at what she does. Not only are my clients, and family, who I have referred to her extremely happy with the quality of her legal work but she has generously spent time with me whenever I call her with a complicated question that required expertise.

She truly embodies the Gotham spirit in both her expertise at her practice and her willingness to give of her time. If you know anyone who needs an experienced, knowledgeable social security disability attorney send them to Crysti. You won't be sorry.
