In 2015, Corcoran Sunshine, Manhattan’s top new development marketing firm, was awash in new business.

Stamford AdvocateAgent Profile Using His Wall Street Experience

Michael Manzino spent 25 years on Wall Street working for several large firms and in his last few years, running a Wall Street trading desk.
