CP for SaleTracey Porpora at the Staten Island Advance chatted with our CEO, James Prendamano about the Millenial generation.

Staten Island rentersJames Prendamano, CEO of Casandra Properties discussed the analysis by the home search platform Localize.city with Tracey Porpora from the Staten Island Advance.  According to the study Staten Island had 2,327 heat-related 311 complaints from renters last year. These complaints are among a total of 221,858 complaints from New Yorkers.

Staten Island RailwayOur CEO, James Prendamano, recently had the opportunity to discuss the reasoning behind the increase in home prices that are within walking distance to the Staten Island Railway (SIR).
