MARINE PARK

Congratulations to Bergen Basin Realty on the opening of its new offices at 3120 Quentin Rd. The realty giant, headquartered at 5817 Avenue N in Old Mill Basin, was founded more than 40 years ago by Geraldine Piccinni and Frank Manzione and set out to build a reputation of providing quality service to their clients by always doing the right thing. Doreen Alfano, the present owner, joined forces with Gerry some 35 years ago, was taken under her wing, and taught that most valuable lesson: “Always do the right thing,” which is still the company’s motto today.

After Gerry passed away 15 years ago, Doreen managed the firm for the next two years and then with partner Jason Sciulara took the plunge and formally purchased the realty 13 years ago. And she has never looked back.

Doreen met associate broker Lee Wasserman, (the manager at the new location), after a real-estate deal with his parents, and decided to take Lee under her wing as Gerry had done with her before.

Doreen explained that her “belief in always doing the right thing and providing quality service is what has made Bergen Basin Realty the success it is today.”

When asked why the need for a second location, Doreen replied, “With more and more business in the area, Jason and I opened the Marine Park office to better help service our clients and be a bigger presence in the community.”

Standing O wishes Doreen and Jason good luck in the new location.

Bergen Basin Realty [3120 Quentin Rd. and E. 32nd Street in Marine Park, (718) 763–4110].

BAY RIDGE

Go Team Natalie!

Special thanks to Bay Ridge Toyota for presenting a $1,000 donation to Team Natalie Grace. Jillian Giuffre, community outreach director, and Vincent Tepedino, general manager of Bay Ridge Toyota, presented the check to John and Kerry Quaglione and their daughters, Natalie Grace and Olivia Nicole of Team Natalie, in support of the fund-raising walk, “March for Babies,” making them an official route sponsor of the event.

The donation was arranged by Standing O pal and Team Natalie Grace Captain John Quaglione, who serves as the chairperson of the Brooklyn Committee of the March of Dimes.

“On behalf of the March of Dimes, my family is thankful to Bay Ridge Toyota for their generous sponsorship, and for standing up in the fight against premature birth. Thank you to Jillian and the Bay Ridge Toyota’s ‘Building A Better Brooklyn’ outreach program, and to general manager Vincent Tepedino for his additional personal donation of $500. The money raised brings us closer to our $10,000 fund-raising team goal this year, to give every baby a fighting chance,” said John Quaglione.

The kick off event takes place April 29 at Lincoln Center. It’s not too late to join the team—www.marchforbabies.org/Account/Enter/?teamEventId=2765971&source=teamwalkwithme">www.marchforbabies.org/Account/Enter/?teamEventId=2765971&source=teamwalkwithme
