Barbara Corcoran, of real estate and “Shark Tank” fame, still likes to spruce up around the Corcoran Group offices and keep things looking cheery — even though she sold the company in 2001.
In an interview with LinkedIn executive editor Daniel Roth, Corcoran explained that she was annoyed at seeing some sad-looking flowers around Corcoran’s headquarters, according to the New York Post.
“I walked past our Madison and 89th [Street] office only two days ago . . . I was annoyed that there were no fresh mums in those planters I had picked out,” she said. “And so what did I do? I had them delivered anonymously the next day.”
She admitted the move was a “little nutsy.” But “you’re always their mother,” figured Corcoran, who founded her firm in the 1970s and later sold it to NRT Inc.[NYP] – Christopher Cameron
