20 Years of Celebrations with Avison Young

You haven’t been to a party until you have been to an Avison Young party! 

#HipNJ‘s Lisa Marie Latino was at Horseshoe Tavern in Morristown to commemorate 20 years of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with the commercial real estate powerhouse. This luck o’ the Irish tradition was started by Ed and Tom Walsh to celebrate their loyal customers, vendors and friends.

Attendees enjoyed a complimentary top-shelf open bar and a delicious buffet spread.  In between snapping pics in front of Horseshoe Tavern’s psychedelic wall and engaging in high-level networking, guests jammed out to the rockin’ sound of HANKANDBEZZY.

“I have had a relationship with Avison Young for 11 years,” explained Kim Sterna, asset manager for DRA Advisors. “They are always so responsive, so happy to help, and eager to help you look better in your position. It’s nice to be here tonight with them in a personal setting.” 

“Avison Young is great to work with them…but it’s just as fun to party with them too!” exclaimed Tyler Brewington of Complete Furniture Solutions.

“I think everybody’s having a great time,” said John Petullo, senior project manager of Avison Young. “There’s a lot of good food, good drinks and good people.”

It was certainly a night to remember. To learn more about Avison Young, click here.
