One of the most energetic and enterprising of the younger business men of Utica is Harold D. Palmiter, a member of the real estate firm of the Palmiter-King Company. A young man, he has already attained a position that would satisfy the ambitions of a man much older and more experienced than he. Mr. Palmiter came to Utica from Brookfield, New York, where he was born on November 2, 1894. His education was obtained in the Brookfield schools and in the Utica Business Institute. In 1914 he accepted a position as bookkeeper in a local concern and was thus employed until 1920, when he became associated with Stanley W. Jones in the real estate business and later with T. Irving King, with offices in the Winston building. Although it is a comparative newcomer in the real estate field, this firm has made remarkable progress in the last four years and already stands high among the concerns of its kind in the city. It is connected with the Utica Real Estate Board, and the New York State and the National Associations of Real Estate Boards, from which associations it derives all the benefits that accrue to members of such highly organized and efficiently managed commercial bodies. No small share of the credit for the success of the firm is due to Mr. Palmiter, who has demonstrated a real ability for this line of work. Motivated by an admirable ambition to rise from the ranks and join the successful few, this young man has let no opportunity to improve his situation slip by. Always alert to secure new business and to develop the old, he has, by his energy and foresight, built up a large clientele in Utica and vicinity. At the same time he has been a close student of real estate values, making it a point to become familiar with every factor that can possibly affect property holdings in this community, and is thus able to render his patrons an intelligent and efficient service which wins their confidence and esteem. With such a record as this to look back upon, Mr. Palmiter can confidently plan for a future as full of promise as his past has been of achievement.
