Why Should We Improve Our Dining Rooms?

Many people have dining rooms in their house even if it's part of their kitchen. It is one of the most important rooms to be featured in the sale of a home due to how often homeowners socially interact in the space that can be found at the heart of any family's get-together. Dining rooms are not just for eating with the family however, as they are often also used for hosting food parties, having game nights, or interacting with our friends and family. This particular room is special because we can bond over the simplest things with our friends and family while we enjoy our meals. After all, food makes us very happy, and we want to express that happiness in the dining room also!

Who Am I?

Hi everyone, my name is Joyee Tan, and I am an intern working at Tom Crimmins Realty. I have been living in Staten Island across from Midland Beach my whole life. Currently, I am a student at Brooklyn Technical High School, becoming a senior in the fall. My career goal is to be a photographer because I really enjoy taking photos of nature, city, people, etc. 

Experience At Tom Crimmins Realty 

In the beginning of year 2018, I was planning on looking for some work experience because I've never gotten a job before. In the months of February-March, I have signed up for a program called Summer Youth Employment Program. This program has a lottery based system, which you must be chosen by random pick; I was lucky and got chosen.

Next, I…

My name is Gianna, and during the summer I was a blog writer for Tom Crimmins Realty. Starting my internship in early July, I pretty much knew what to expect beforehand. There were two main components to the task, including photography and writing. I would have to say my favorite aspect of interning here was being able to work independently, yet still being a part of a team. Having the opportunity to intern here has helped me to grow as a writer. Throughout my time here, I wrote blogs about topics I wasn't familiar with in an attempt to expand my horizons, which led to me learning a bunch of interesting information.


While writing simple blogs and collaborating on marketing videos, the interns used Slack, a cloud-based collaborating…

Meeting Manav

I started working at Tom Crimmins Realty as an intern in the beginning of July and I have loved it every day since then! When I first starting working here I honestly didn't know what to expect and if anything I was a little nervous about working at the fastest growing real estate company on the North Shore. But I have never worked in such an amazing environment where I have been treated like part of the "team" even if I was just an intern writing blogs. The fact that Suzanne & Tom Crimmins and his family are actively involved in the business made the office also quite welcoming, as I pretty much knew they genuinely cared about their business.

My favorite part of the business would most definitely be the people I work…

Who Am I?

Hey, everyone! My name is Susan Lin and I am one of the blog writers here at Tom Crimmins Realty. I am currently a student of Brooklyn High School of the Arts and will be graduating from the school next year. I still have no clue what college and major I want to do but I hope to do either art, designing, technology and accounting. I hope you are pleased with what you read about Staten Island because some of it is actually written by me! I really hope you visit the island too. I just moved into Staten Island this summer and I love it so far. The island is very peaceful and the people here are very nice. 

My Experience?

I was introduced to Tom Crimmins Realty through Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). When I was first asked to work…

Meet Our Interns: Ksenija Farafonova

When I began working at Tom Crimmins Realty I knew very little about marketing and the real estate business. However, at Tom Crimmins Realty I quickly learned about the business, as well as the importance of teamwork and an efficient, cohesive working environment. The working staff was always very friendly and willing to help each other, or if one of the interns needed help. In addition, Tom and Suzanne Crimmins were always actively involved in the business and were often present at the office. This created a very welcoming environment, and allowed the interns to meet the professionals who inspired them. Through this experience I made many talented friends who share my passions and goals.

Hiya everyone! I'm Daniel C., one of the blog writers putting out some of the things you've (hopefully) had the pleasure to read over the last month or so. 

Who am I?

I'm a recent Stuyvesant graduate going into NYU. I've lived on Staten Island, near the Verrazano Bridge my entire life, and still will for the next four years.  

My current career aspirations are to go to medical school in hopes of becoming a doctor (what kind, I'm not sure yet). My hobbies, however, tend to be more focused around technology, graphic design, and writing. 

What was my experience at Tom Crimmins Realty?

When I came to Tom Crimmins Realty from the SYEP program, I didn't expect much at all, and honestly expected a boring job that didn't offer much - something very…

Why are Beach Cleanups Important? 

Have you ever wondered what happens to the trash that is left on the beach? Sometimes it stays there for a while, but most of the time it is harming animals living in the oceans and beaches. When the trash that we leave behind on the beach gets into our oceans, animals can easily mistake the vast amount of trash as their certain food source. An example of this action is with sea turtles because when a sea turtle sees a plastic bag floating around in the ocean, they might mistake it for a jellyfish and then swallowing it as a whole. This can be extremely harmful to the sea turtles because eating that plastic bag is bad for their health. The plastic bag can prevent the sea turtles from eating anymore, thus, cause it to…

What is the ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet (or keto for short) is primarily based on a low carbohydrate (or carb), mid protein, and high fats intake. This may be a surprise since most people think "eating fats make you fat," which is utterly false. The fact is that eating fat isn't fattening. Our bodies need fats for energy, cell growth, hormone regulation, and absorbing nutrients. Your body definitely needs fats. 

The combination of low carbs, mid proteins, and high fats puts the body in a state of ketosis. When the body reaches a state of ketosis, the liver produces ketones which become the main source of energy for the body. When someone eats something high in carbs such as a big bowl of pasta, the body makes glucose and insulin.
