    From the July issue: In Bedford-Stuyvesant on a Monday morning, broker Aaron Jungreis is taking stock of a 20-unit apartment building, part of a 12-building, $40 million Brooklyn portfolio he had just been hired to sell.

    “It’s a little dirtier than I expected,” said Jungreis, founder of Rosewood Realty Group, noting trash outside the building, which he will mention to the seller. “Did you see that cigarette butt?” To prepare a building for sale, he said: “You want it to be crisp, to look nice.”  [more]

  • The July issue is live!

    July 02, 2013 11:00AM


    Of the many adjectives that could be used to describe Donald Trump, larger-than-life is perhaps the most appropriate. The Donald has always been the master of talking the talk, but when it comes to hard assets, what is he really worth? To answer that question, reporter Katherine Clarke ventured into the labyrinthine world of the Trump Organization, in a cover story, “The $8 billion dollar man?” for the July issue, now available online.

  • Investment sales brokers sound off on 2012

    December 30, 2011 02:19PM

    Compiled by Adam Pincus
    Brokers broadly expect next year to be an improvement over 2011 in New York City’s investment sales market, although concerns about the global economy and financial services layoffs create uncertainty, and that puts a drag on activity. This year, total investment sales are expected to end up at about $25 billion, far ahead of the $14.5 billion in 2010. The Real Deal talked to a series of brokers about what they expect for the new year….

  • Arab buyers after Park51

    alternate text

    It happens all the time. A buyer eyeballing a significant piece of real estate loses heart because of some nagging doubt about the property or a dip in the stock market. But what happens when a deal is sabotaged for a reason having nothing to do with the price or the property? That was the case when a Saudi investor recently about-faced on a major apartment in a top Manhattan building. The reason, according to a prominent real estate lawyer, was the anti-Islamic response to Park51, the proposed downtown Islamic culture center. Some suggest the vitriol surrounding Park51 could cool Middle Eastern buyers on New York — although that assessment is by no means universal.

  • 752 West End Avenue (source: PropertyShark)

    David Bistricer’s Clipper Equity and the family-owned Rieder Holdings closed on the purchase of the 197-unit Upper West Side apartment building at 752 West End Avenue from Westbrook Partners for $72.36 million. 
    The purchase of the former hotel built in 1931, known as the Paris, which closed today, is one of the most expensive apartment sales so far this year. The Real Deal reported in July that the building was in contract.
    Bistricer, a managing partner with Brooklyn-based Clipper Equity, confirmed the purchase and said the new owners would make improvements in the structure and did not plan on a condominium conversion.
    “We are long-term owners. Right now we will keep it as a rental. That is the plan,” he said. “We think it is a great location, a beautiful building. It was well-maintained by Westbrook and we are going to take it to the next level.”
    The sale has not yet appeared in city property records.
    Private equity firm Westbrook apparently took a $13 million loss on the approximately 161,000-square-foot building located at 97th Street, which it bought in August 2007 for $85.8 million, city property records show. Westbrook declined to comment. 
    Aaron Jungreis, president of investment sales firm Rosewood Realty Group, was the broker on the purchase and Adam Spies and Douglas Harmon, senior managing directors at Eastdil Secured, were advisors to Westbrook. 
    The only larger sales in Manhattan this year were the portfolio of three former Macklowe Properties apartment buildings for $475 million to Sam Zell’s Equity Residential; a $125 million purchase by New York University of a dorm; and the $125 million foreclosure auction of Riverton Houses. 
    Bistricer was a bidder on the purchase of the 5,881-unit apartment project Starrett City in Brooklyn, but the $1.3 billion sale was blocked in 2007 by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development. Bistricer also bid on the Riverton Houses at the foreclosure auction of the property in March, but was outbid by the lender, CWCapital Asset Management.
    The Rieder family began in New Jersey and owns and manages about 1,000 apartment units in the area, Samuel Rieder, a principal with the company, said.


  • Q & A with Aaron Jungreis of Rosewood

    The president of the investment sales brokerage talks about breaking up portfolios, broker commissions and the most important influence on the sales market

    Aaron Jungreis

    Aaron Jungreis is president of investment sales brokerage Rosewood Realty Group, which in 2009 ranked 13th in the city with $62 million in sales, CoStar Group figures show.

  • Stuy Town ruling impacts dealmaking

    Aaron Jungreis, president of the Rosewood Realty Group, and Stuyvesant Town

    Yesterday’s court ruling handing down a victory to tenants at the mostly rent-regulated apartment complex Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village has an immediate effect on the sale of a number of properties in New York City, industry insiders said. In one instance, an apartment sale could now be canceled; in a second a seller may have to cut a Brooklyn property’s valuation; and in a third, an owner sought to rush a sale to unload his Midtown apartment building. In all of the cases, the dealmakers said, the sellers or buyers were reacting to the court ruling yesterday by the state’s highest court, the New York Court of Appeals, that upheld a lower court decision against Tishman Speyer Properties and BlackRock Realty, owners of the 110-building complex on Manhattan’s East Side. The court said the landlords improperly raised rents and deregulated thousands of apartment units while benefiting from special tax incentives in the so-called J-51 program…. [more]
