Mavericks. Moguls. Visionaries. “The Closing” features 100 candid interviews with the giants of the real estate industry, who share the lessons they learned and the challenges they overcame on their way to the top.

The collection is drawn from nearly a decade of The Real Deal’s back-page interview, The Closing, one of the most popular features with readers since the magazine’s inception.

In no-holds-barred conversations, we learn about the tough times and the triumphs of luminaries like Charles Kushner, who spent his time in prison mentoring younger inmates; and Stephen Ross, who spent as much time as a school boy in the principal’s office as he does now in boardrooms.

The book is a must-read for anyone fascinated by these very human stories of the grit and determination it took to conquer the world of New York City real estate. It is available for purchase here, or can be downloaded through The Real Deal‘s app on iTunes and Google Play.
