Warren discovers Mark in a real estate transaction

In late August, after having exchanged emails with me, Warren Safter ran a Google search on Mark Zimkin and found a new bit of information buried in the records of Las Vegas real estate transactions. RS Capital, a limited liability corporation with a Mark Zimkin listed as a member and registered agent, purchased the property in December 2010. When Warren sent me the link for that, I was able to also find a Clark County property parcel record showing it was a unit in the Village Green Condos in East Las Vegas. It was current as of May 2013 and still showed Mark Zimkin as one of two owners.

Rosh Hashanah was coming up in a few days, so Warren decided to use the occasion to send Mark a greeting to the Village Green address. He told me he had done so, but it was not top of my mind a week or two later. One thing I was distracted by was the excitement of a baseball pennant race. My Pittsburgh Pirates were finally going to the post-season for the first time in 20 years. My sports-mad nephew Zach even convinced me to go with him for the two playoff games in Pittsburgh.

It was there, in the hotel the night after the team won the first game, that I got Warren's email that Mark had replied to his New Year's card and that the two had spoken at length. Warren had told Mark about me and my research, and he said that Mark looked forward to speaking with me. The Pirates lost the second game and eventually lost the series to St. Louis. I waited to get home to place my call to Mark. More on that in the next post.
