Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group brought together over a thousand real estate professionals through events and discussions during its weeklong speaker series, CS Talks. Featured speakers included Thomas Juul-Hansen, Jeffrey Beers and Vicente Wolf. The events and lectures took place at 12 of Corcoran Sunshine’s new residential developments.

“The goal of CS Talks was to offer the brokerage community a totally new level of insight into development,” explains Kelly Kennedy Mack, president of Corcoran Sunshine. “CS Talks offered extraordinary access to each property, but also aimed to entertain and educate.”

The first of this type of series for real estate, the event featured architects, developers, designers and other industry professionals.

Designer Jeffrey Beers and Scavolini creative director Daniele Busca discussed the art of hospitality at one of the properties, One West End. In terms of kitchen design, Beers says, “Being a host is showing love for your guests. The kitchen has to be genuine, true and thoughtful.”

At another talk down along the High Line, architect Thomas Juul-Hansen noted, “Everything should be built with integrity, because buildings aren’t just made for people, they are made for the city.”

Vicente Wolf revealed his new Penthouse Collection at Manhattan House and explained how “simplicity can be elaborate.”

At The Chatsworth, designers Alyssa Kapito and Vivian Muller of Kapito Muller Interiors spoke about the recent conversion of a model residence in the building. “The idea for The Chatsworth was to create a comfortable living space for a young Upper West Side family, and a younger audience see furniture as more transitional. Past generations thought, you’ll have this forever.”

After the success of CS Talks, the marketing group is planning its next series.
