RENTING MADE STRESS-FREE
ALYSHA PEARLBERG AND MICHAEL MIGNOSI HELP APARTMENT SEEKERS NAVIGATE NEW YORK'S HIGHLY COMPETITIVE RENTAL MARKET.
On Tuesday evening, June 4, Out Professionals invites singles and couples to learn the ins and outs of New York City's complex rental market from Out Professionals Members Alysha Pearlberg and Michael Mignosi. As agents with Prime NYC, a boutique real estate company, Michael and Alysha specialize in apartment rentals and sales.
Let them take you on a quick tour of New York City neighborhoods, brief you on median prices, sketch local demographics, and report on local LGBT-friendliness.
What about the rental process itself: Is there such a thing as a good time to look? What should you be looking for -- and looking out for? What costs can you expect to incur?
What about the role of the real estate broker: What value should they provide? What do they charge?
How do you go about choosing a broker, or -- as more than one broker has been known to maintain -- does a broker actually choose you?

NETWORK IN MONTCLAIR
OUT PROFESSIONALS CONNECTS YOU WITH OTHER FRIENDLY, SUCCESSFUL LGBT FOLKS IN ESSEX COUNTY.
On Tuesday evening, June 25, Out Professionals invites you to network and socialize at Pig & Prince, in easy-to-reach downtown Montclair. Party elegantly in the handsomely restored Lackawanna Railroad terminal, where a vaulted ceiling soars 50 feet and giant bronze chandeliers help provide soft and soulful lighting.
The New York Times calls it "a sensational space." Sadly, the 25-year-old architect, William Hull Botsford, perished on the Titanic before the celebrated structure was completed in 1913.
