Real Estate In-Depth | August 2016

CORTLAND MANOR—Westchester Magazine readers have designated Irene Amato, president of A.S.A.P. Mortgage Corp. in Cortlandt Manor, as Westchester’s “Best Businesswoman” of 2016.

This is a new category in the annual reader-adjudicated contest. More than 12,000 members of the Westchester community placed online votes for this year’s 224 categories, including food & drink, shopping, and professional services. Amato’s company, A.S.A.P. Mortgage Corp., was previously honored as Best of Westchester’s Best Mortgage Broker of 2015. A.S.A.P. also won 914 INC’s Small Business award for General Excellence that same year.

“My company or me, it doesn’t matter – I’m just as thrilled that the company won as I am that I won,” said Amato. “I’m humbled, as this is an incredible accomplishment for all women in business. Years ago this type of recognition was rarely acknowledged. I stand side by side every day with women that are just as deserving of this award as I am. It’s great to see that women are moving up in the business world.”

Amato was honored along with 370 other winners at the Best Of Westchester Party on July 27 at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle, as well as in the special “Best Of” issue of Westchester Magazine.
