Lina Telese Presiding Over the Association of Real Estate Women 35th Anniversary Gala

NEW YORK (May 7, 2013) —

Zetlin & De Chiara partner Lina Telese is presiding over the Association of Real Estate Women (AREW) 35th Anniversary Gala taking place on May 9th at Gotham Hall.

AREW is the first association founded in the U.S. dedicated to the professional growth of women real estate professionals, the largest such organization in New York City and a chapter of CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) Network.

Christine C. Quinn, Speaker of the New York City Council, is the Gala’s keynote speaker. Three distinguished individuals will be honored for their achievements and leadership:

  • Capital Markets - Cia Buckley, Chief Investment Officer/Partner, Dune Real Estate Partners
  • Real Estate - Anthony Malkin, President, Malkin Holdings
  • Education and Technology - Cathy S. Dove, Vice President, Cornell NYC Tech.

“Having had a profound influence in elevating the status of women in the highly competitive, male-dominated field of real estate, AREW has broken ground in so many ways that today, women real estate professionals assume all doors are open to them - and they would be right,” said Lina Telese.
