Brokers Save Prime NYC Apartments for Themselves
One perk to being a realtor is knowing what inventory is out there before anyone else, which means automatic first dibs.
Million Dollar Listing star and Nest Seekers International broker Ryan Serhant did just that when he nabbed a brand-new, full-floor, 2k SF apartment with two terraces at 22 Renwick St for $3.7M. He knew the apartment was a rare find for under $4M, so he pounced on the opportunity.
Co-star and Douglas Elliman broker Fredrik Eklund recently grabbed a pad at One Madison in the Flatiron District that overlooks the $20M penthouse he sold to JLo. And they're not the only ones.
Fellow Douglas Elliman broker Tal Alexander bought a prime luxury condo at the New Museum Building at 158 Mercer St. Top-ranked broker and Compass president Leonard Steinberg nabbed a $4.5M two-bedroom at 158 Charles St, noting the building is full of current and potential clients. And Corogan's Robby Brown picked out a pad at 25 Central Park West right above Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. [NYP]
