Launches high tech Residential Real Estate Division and a New Look For 2015

Staten Island, New York: Casandra Properties – Staten Island’s leading commercial real estate brokerage firm – is proud to announce its certification as a New York City Woman Owned Business. The certification comes as the company launches its high tech residential real estate division and new brand for 2015.

Said Casandra Zappala, Broker/Owner of Casandra Properties, “I began Casandra Properties in the late 1970’s when women selling commercial real estate was an exception instead of the norm. It wasn’t easy for me to break into the field at that time. I had to be persistent and to prove that I could do the job well. Thirty years later, Casandra Properties is the leading Commercial Real Estate Brokerage firm on Staten Island. By acquiring this certification I hope that it will be an example to young women entering the commercial real estate industry that there is a place for them in this field.

Casandra Properties is the leasing agent for some of Staten Island’s most high profile projects. In anticipation of what they believe will be an influx of people seeking to live on Staten Island, they have launched a “high-tech” real estate division.

Said James Prendamano, Managing Director for Casandra Properties, “Since 1979, Casandra Properties has proudly served clients seeking to buy, sell or lease real estate on Staten Island. We currently manage approximately $1 billion in real estate assets including Navy Pier, Empire Outlets and Downtown Plaza to name a few. These projects have gained international notoriety and are attracting people to live on Staten Island. By expanding our residential real estate division to incorporate the same cutting edge technology we use in marketing our commercial properties, we believe we our clients will be able to buy, sell or lease residential property more quickly.”

That cutting edge technology which includes property videos, blogs and a social media marketing campaign for each property can be found on Casandra Properties’ new website

Along with the upgraded residential real estate division comes a new look for 2015.

Said John Pitera, Managing Director of Casandra Properties, “There are so many great things happening on Staten Island which Casandra Properties is a part of, that we decided it was time to rebrand ourselves with bold new colors designed to capture attention. Staten Island has a bright, new future and we are proud to be able to play a role in it.”
