Philip Kraus To Participate As Expert Panelist at CNYC’s Annual Housing Conference

The Housing Conference, CYNC’s largest annual event, provides an educational forum for the organization’s membership of 2300 cooperative and condominium shareholders and boards of directors.

Philip Kraus will participate in the educational seminar – “Myth or Truth?” – sponsored by Lawrence Properties. This seminar is designed to dispel common myths about a multitude of issues surrounding the challenges of property management and building maintenance.

Mr. Joseph Bulfamante, Director of Management of Lawrence Properties will moderate a small panel of experts: Anton Cirulli, Director of Operators – Lawrence Properties; Howard Steinhardt, Architect; Philip Kraus, President – Fred Smith Plumbing & Heating; and Richard Klein – Richard Klein Law Office. Each participating expert will be provided with a list of statements and asked to explain whether the statements are myths or truths.

Fons article – A Tree With Many Branches –, published in the Cooperator. Fred Smith invites you to attend the “Myth or Truth?” seminar.


When you call Fred Smith Plumbing you get an expert on the phone who can solve your problem fast. Most days, that expert will probaby be owner Philip Kraus.
