Boston condo brokers warning: “The day of rage”
Several of New York City’s major brokerages elected to close their offices Friday when a former Hamas leader called for a “day of rage” worldwide to support the organization’s war against Israel.
Douglas Elliman, Corcoran and Coldwell Banker Warburg are shutting their New York City offices. Brown Harris Stevens, Serhant and Compass have made in-office attendance optional, with Compass urging its people to stay home.
We are encouraging all Compass employees and agents to travel as little as possible/work remotely,” Gordon Golub, who heads the brokerage’s tri-state operations, wrote in an email to staff.
But the brokerages elected to err on the side of caution, as did the NYPD, which ordered all of its cops to report for duty Friday, according to the New York Post.
