Jeannette Ho’s eyes sparkled like Christmas ornaments as she made a beeline for the jolly ol’ elf and told him her holiday wish list.
“I told Santa that I wanted him to cure all the sickness in the world,” said the 9-year-old girl, who was among a lively group of munchkins enjoying a merry mingle with Kris Kringle at Brooklyn Real Property’s Boerum Hill office, where the pot-bellied man in the red suit held court, and dispensed cheer and gifts.
Office workers feted their young guests with mac and cheese, hot dogs, pizza, and hot chocolate to jumpstart Yuletide festivities, which continued the next day at Greenhouse Cafe in Bay Ridge, where company founder Jean-Paul Ho led a staff awards ceremony.
The honorees were: Marcus Goncalves and Ruslan Mingazov, “Companywide Salespeople of the Year;” Lewis Washington and Christian Florez, “Rising Stars of 2013” at the Flatlands and Boerum Hill offices, respectively; and Anita Yeung and Raymond Parasmo, “Managers of the Year.”
Ho feted his employees with presents and words of gratitude.
“Everyone at Brooklyn Real Property is a winner without whose hard work, commitment, and leadership our work would not be possible,” he said.
