First and foremost I’d like to thank every person: client, broker, tenant, landlord, buyer and seller I’ve been introduced to and fortunate to meet and work with. It has been and continues to be a privilege to work in this industry and especially in this beautiful city of ours, New York.My thanks to Beth and Kim for being there since the begining. To Joshua John for being there when I came up with the name Cast Iron Real Estate Co. To Israel Perry for giving me the push to go out on my own and for my “desk”. To Mrs Luciana Barrow (Mrs B.) for teaching me to do all things with integrity and dignity and to always be ethical. To my mom, Alba Franco, for bringing me up right. And to my wife, Carolina, for all your support. – David Barreto, Founder
