  • Daphne Guinness and the interior of the Stanhope spread

    Beer heiress and fashion muse Daphne Guinness has finally found a buyer for her four-bedroom apartment at the former Stanhope hotel, just two months after she settled a lawsuit with her neighbors at the building, The Real Deal has learned.

  • The Kleier klan dropped in on “Live with Regis and Kelly” this morning to teach departing host Regis Philbin the tricks of the real estate trade. Where to start? Your typical New York City apartment, of course: Michele Kleier’s $27.5 million listing on the 16th floor of the former Stanhope hotel. Watch the clip above as the matriarch of the self-described “First Family of Real Estate” shows him the ropes of New York City showings. Among her tips: don’t say “entryway,” say “gallery;” “den” is a dirty word — it’s a library here; and we never, ever say “his and hers” anymore (this is New York, after all). Regis flubbed the “his and hers” bit on his first-ever showing, but Kleier said she thinks he’s “trainable” — good news in case he ever needs any cash post-retirement.

Four or five listings in another new development are also coming her way soon, she said, declining to identify the property. “I would love to represent a whole building,” Kleier said. “Truthfully, we have never been set up for it.” [NYT][more]

    There’s drama brewing on the 16th floor of Extell Development’s 995 Fifth Avenue, the former Stanhope Hotel and one of the buildings featured in the new HGTV series “Selling NY,” which kicks off March 18.
