From Luxury Listings NYC: Milstein Properties gave Douglas Elliman’s Luis D. Ortiz another shot at his 30 West 63rd Street listing, which he was fired from in last Wednesday’s episode of “Million Dollar Listing New York.” As seen earlier in the season, Ortiz meets with Milstein’s CAO on camera to tell her he wants to have this listing exclusively, rather than have her in-house brokers market it. Together, they work out a deadline that he must meet to make the sale. The condominium home, which the broker/star originally listed for $7.8 million and ultimately had a hard time unloading on camera, sold early this week, according to StreetEasy. Douglas Elliman’s site shows the spread traded hands for $8.5 million. [more]

    Too bad he didn’t sell the apartment, it was the sales office who brought the client in directly

      Hi, thanks for your comment. Even if the sales office brought in the client, Ortiz still had the listing and the sale. You can see the records on StreetEasy. — Zach Kussin

        You might want to talk to the sales office then, he lost the listing and never took it down.

      Why give LUIS and DE Credit where credit in selling this apartment is not true!
      Is the REAL DEAL the ENQUIRER of Reporting incorrect news?
      DE probably paid for this endorsement.
