As Summer Flies By

As Summer Flies By

By Kalyn Schutz – Leasing Consultant

Rumor has it that the winter is supposed to be a doozie. Again. Sigh…

Amazing it is that most of us agree that summer truly went by too fast – if in fact it really ever started at all. It seems to me that the only proof that summer has occurred is by the date showing on my calendar. Fortunately for “We the people of The Baker Companies”, we enjoyed a variety of summer activities.

CT OPEN

The Baker Companies participated as a sponsor for the Connecticut Open this year and some lucky Town Walk and Town Place residents won tickets to the event! Impressive to me is that Marcus Baker, President of The Baker Companies, in hearing that the tennis event risked the possibility of moving out of state, sought out the opportunity to help. Team members from Baker Residential, and Town Place & Town Walk, operated the Baker booth at The Open, offering complimentary t-shirts, tote bags, and information about our properties and services.

The Baker Companies hosted a celebratory event for Town Place and Town Walk at New Britain Rock Cats Stadium. Great food, great game, great people – and a cray cray adorbs Rock Cat Mascot that we thoroughly monopolized (here, kitty, kitty, kitty!).

FAREWELL FESTIVITIES

Rumor also has it that Norman Greenberg, Vice President of the Baker Companies, read the Farmer’s Almanac for the coming season and announced his “retirement” to, of all places, sunny Florida! Suspicions have been raised that this is not legit – the man can hardly go on vacation without checking in or being contacted for his expertise. Norman was planning the path to retirement prior to the purchase of Town Walk at Hamden Hills and was lured into managing this fledgling Baker adventure. With the calendar flipping days, then weeks and then years ahead, would he ever be able to retire? (insert evil laughter here). Then the purchase of Town Place Apartments in Middletown, CT, and more calendar flipping, and a total of 32 years of service in real estate to the Baker portfolio. Finally, the random threats about retiring have come true. With a stroke of the brush of an accomplished artist, Norman paints a wonderful sunset that spans the northern East Coast and gently washes in crystal blues and warm breezes of a new Floridian home.  Norman20Greenberg20Retirement
