Businesses in Bay Ridge are like family according to State Sen. Marty Golden who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Re/Max Edge at 9425 Third Avenue on Wednesday, June 27.
“We’re happy Re/Max Edge is opening up its new location in our neighborhood,” Golden said. “We’re all one big family in this community and now we have a new business joining our family.”
Owner Michael Napolitano welcomed an enthusiastic group of colleagues and well-wishers who had crowded around the new real estate office. Guests enjoyed champagne as they cheered Napolitano on to cut the ribbon.
“I want to thank everyone for coming, especially my family, my wife Lauren and my son Sam,” Napolitano said. “And I want to thank the operations team and all our Re/Max agents. This would definitely not be possible without them. We’re super excited to be extending into Bay Ridge.”
Napolitano started his career 16 years ago as a rental agent in Bensonhurst before becoming one of the most influential figures in Brooklyn’s real estate market. Prior to opening in Bay Ridge, Napolitano and his team managed a Re/Max Edge branch in Bath Beach.
Napolitano’s wife Lauren is the assistant principal at the District 20 Pre-K for All Center.
Following the ribbon-cutting, guests were invited to celebrate across the street at the Wicked Monk bar and restaurant.
