Meet Marcia Clarke, 2017 President, Brooklyn Board of Realtors

Marcia Clarke, 2017 President of the Brooklyn Board of Realtors addresses the audience after taking the Oath of Office


On January 10, 2017, another Presidential installation was held, one which those in New York City’s’ Real Estate industry feel carries more importance than the inauguration in Washington, D.C. For on that day, Marcia Clarke, Realtor, Owner and Principal Broker of M C Realty Consulting & Management, Inc., became the new President of the Brooklyn Board of Realtors.

Her installation ceremony was held at the Hudson River Yacht Club in Brooklyn’s Bergen Beach.

Richard Schulhoff,  the Executive Officer of both The Brooklyn Board of Realtors (TBBOR) and the Brooklyn Multiple Listing Service (BNYMLS) served as emcee, and Dawn Carpenter, respected Staten Island colleague and Marcia’s friend of many years in the real estate business, and the President-Elect for the New York State Association of Realtors, introduced Marcia.

2017 New York State Insurance Continuing Education

2017 New York State Insurance Continuing Education

And now, a message from your sponsor, Eustace L. Greaves, Jr., New State Licensed Continuing Education Exam Monitor on, “Your 2017 New York State Continuing Education Requirements for your New York State Life, Health, and Property Casualty Licenses.”

Your Birth Year Matters

If you are a New York State-licensed insurance agent or broker, and you were born in an odd year, say like, 2017,  (you know, your birth year ends with a one of the following: 1,3,5,7 or 9), you must complete at least 15 continuing education credit hours to keep your license or licenses active.

Take My Advice

Take my advice and don’t wait until the week before your birthday to get your CE done. Trust me, somebody always dies, gets ill, needs a ride to the airport, has a house fire, or elopes with the village idiot.  Look, for all we know, Godzilla is real, and is about to do battle with Mothra this year. In various New York State locales.

And there’s no strain like the strain of trying to complete those hours through self-study, only to find out your must engage the services of a state-licensed proctor like myself.

And that is for a fee.
For each exam.
Pass or fail.
You really don’t want to fail.
Word to the wise, begin preparation to meet your CE requirements as soon as possible. It is so much easier to set aside study time each day, instead of trying to hide from the world for a week to get the knowledge in your brain.
So, should you choose to get your hours in through self-study, you will need a proctor.  Call me, Eustace L. Greaves, Jr., LUTCF for an available testing time. My contact number is 718-783-7209, and my email is
Looking forward to hearing from you.
At least a month before we have to sing, “Happy Birthday.”

Eustace L. Greaves, Jr., LUTCF is an independent insurance agent and broker based in Brooklyn, NY. Call him today at 718-783-2722 to make an appointment for your personal insurance review of your home, auto, flood, renters, coop, condo, life and disability insurance policies.

Family Quarter Conversations

I can only imagine the scene in the Family Quarters of the White House last night. Barak has dried Michelle’s tears, (or, more likely,  she’s dried his), and they are hugging each other.

There’s a soft knock at the door, and their two beautiful daughters come into their bedroom, sitting on the edge of the bed.

“Daddy, does America really hate you so much?”

” Seems so sweetie.”

“Why Daddy?”

“I guess racial hatred makes America just not really ready for prime time yet kiddo.”

Their conversation is interrupted by another knock at the door.

“That had better not be Joe,” President Obama joked.

The door opened and Grandma walked in. Wearily, she walked over to the sitting chair, and sat down .

She looked over to her family, taking in the sight.


“Yes Mom?”

“How they like you now?”


“And Barak?”

“Joe is outside. He needs a hug too.”

Eustace L. Greaves, Jr. is, most importantly, a Father. A Father who is praying for an America which has lost it’s way.
