At a Massey Knakal Realty Services-hosted shindig at Aureole restaurant at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, retail pros such as Trevi Retail’s Johnny McCarthy and Thor Equities’ Morris Bailey mingled with Massey Knakal brokers like James Nelson, Stephen Palmese, Ben Fox and Jill Lovatt. Firm heads Paul Massey and Bob Knakal manned the door, greeting guests. Knakal looked particularly summery dressed in a beige linen jacket. Both looked like they’d enjoyed a day in the sun.
Wandering around the conference’s exhibits the following day, The Real Deal ran into Jeff Winick of Winick Realty Group and his daughter Danielle, who is spending the summer interning with real estate giant Vornado Realty Trust, she said. Mitch Rudin of Brookfield Properties was also seen striding through the giant facility. — Katherine Clarke
