Michael Holland, Estates POA secretary and director; Ryan Donnelly, president, The Donnelly Group; William Slattery, POA president and director; Craig Tigh, president, TT Enterprises; Matthew Abrusci, POA treasurer and director; John DeMaro, trustee.
POA was fortunate to have two impressive featured speakers, Ryan
Donnelly, president of The Donnelly Group, a leading Garden City realty
firm, and Craig Tigh, president of TT Enterprises, a leading independent
car wholesaler, at its Jan. 15 meeting at Stratford School.
Ryan Donnelly gave an extensive overview of the current Garden
City real estate market. He pointed out that Garden City home sales
remain strong especially in the Estates section which has proven itself
to be among the most desirable sections of town. Home prices in the
Estates are actually showing signs of increasing.
Mr. Donnelly said that
home sellers must be realistic when setting their prices and if they do
that, they can expect to even find multiple interested buyers for their
properties. Donnelly is very optimistic about the home sales market in
Garden City this year.
Craig Tigh provided the audience with an overview of
the current national car sales market all the way down to the local
level. Tigh, a lifelong resident of Garden City, went into the various
options available to car buyers and why an independent car wholesaler
can, at times, be more advantageous in offering a candid assessment of
various car makes.
Tigh put a lot of minds at ease on those worried
about Superstorm Sandy flood damage to used cars. He stated that as
long as the car had comprehensive insurance coverage the insurance
companies will verify any damage and remove those impacted cars from the
marketplace. Tigh is looking forward to another
strong year of car sales this year at his Floral Park-based firm.
