    Susan Daimler, the general manager of StreetEasy and Zillow NYC, hardly cuts an intimidating figure. Except, perhaps, to a room full of real estate agents, who publicly tout the listing sites for improving access to data but quietly wonder if that access will sideline brokers.

    Add in a paid advertising program, and you’ve got a recipe for the kind of public spat that ensued this morning at Compass’ “Future of Real Estate” panel discussion at the Asia Society. Along with Daimler, developer Bill Rudin took part, as did Jeffrey Fine, a top real estate executive at Goldman Sachs. [more]

    In 1691, British philosopher John Locke proposed that “the price of any commodity rises or falls by the proportion of the number of buyers and sellers.” His statement became the first commandment in the bible of modern business: Supply and demand drives everything. But at least in New York’s ultra-luxury condo market, Locke’s words are tough to come to terms with.  [more]

    Like Prince Edward in Mark Twain’s 1881 novel The Prince and the Pauper, today’s buyers of Manhattan’s top real estate can become jaded when everything on the market carries the luxury tag – and the word itself starts to lose its meaning.

  • Is Urban Compass really the future?

    Brown Harris Stevens’ Twitter handle reads, simply, “@Established1873.” The brokerage trades upon its distinguished lineage and generally manages to keep its white-gloved hands out of industry drama. But when real estate startup Urban Compass poached elite broker Kyle Blackmon last week, BHS president Hall Willkie decided it was time for those gloves to come off.

    “Kyle has made the decision that the equity proposition offered to him trumps a singular focus on brokerage,” Willkie said in a statement to The Real Deal. He questioned the wisdom of that decision in an internal BHS memo that stated: “The value of Kyle’s or anyone’s equity will be dependent on the success of Urban Compass’ founders implementing their vision of selling their company for substantially more than many industry experts believe is possible.”

    Willkie’s statement echoed what many in the industry have whispered – or shouted under the cloak of anonymity – for months. Urban Compass, these sources say, is merely an idea – albeit a well-choreographed, Ivy League and McKinsey-branded one. But even with a $360 million valuation, they ask, is it really the future?

    Earlier this week, Zeckendorf Development announced that it would seek $130 million for the penthouse triplex at its 520 Park development, the priciest current listing for a condominium unit in New York City. The ask surpassed the $118 million listing for the Ritz Carlton Hotel’s penthouse and surely made more than a few jaws drop. [more]
