Kismet Encounters!

So, off we went.  On April 24, 2010 we had our launch as The Harbor Lights Theater Company ( with a benefit honoring the famed Stephen Schwartz starring Malcolm Gets.  This year we enter our 5th season and since our inception have produced 14 plays and musicals and had over 70 Broadway professionals, including TONY, Grammy, Oscar, Emmy, Drama Desk, and Obie Award winning and nominated artists on our stages. 

Fast forward again to last summer.  I had been working at a real estate company that wasn't a fit for me.  I knew about Bohemia and decided to meet with the brokers who founded it to see if maybe it was the right fit for me.  After I sat down with Jon and Sarah who own Bohemia, I felt like I fell in love with real estate all over again.  I had never in over 10 years in the business met people who worked like Jon and Sarah.  They had built an amazing company and I wanted to be part of it.  At the end of 2013, Jon and Sarah asked me to run and develop the sales division of the company.  I was so honored and excited by the opportunity and knew right away I would say yes. It is so exciting in Upper Manhattan and we love being a firm that services every need our clients have in true Bohemia style.  Since starting my new position I have spent more time with Jon and Sarah and everyday I am thankful for my career at Bohemia. It is Kismet for me to be working at a company that is finally a match for both my theater and real estate careers.  Oh, and one more thing.  Jon has a behavioral psychology background which is a foundation for how we work at Bohemia and I am also getting a degree concentrated in organizational psychology. Go figure!
