    Off-market deals, known as “whisper listings,” have always been a fixture of the high-end market. But now whisper listings are becoming increasingly commonplace at all price points.

    In the past, properties with price tags in the tens of millions would be quietly shopped around, fomenting a mixture of excitement, urgency and exclusivity. Now brokers are using the approach to sell properties that cost below $1 million. [more]

    Residential real estate brokerage CORE unveiled its second Manhattan retail office today and had a party last night to celebrate. The rather tasteful, subdued gathering took place in a sleek basement lounge at the Rouge Tomate, an upscale Upper East Side restaurant known for its nutritional offerings, and was hosted by the firm in partnership with the New York Observer, which just launched a new lifestyle supplement to its weekly newspaper….

  • A day in the life of: Shaun Osher

    January 15, 2013 10:00AM

    Shaun Osher

    From the January issue:  6:30 a.m. I usually wake up at 6:30. Half the week I stay in Port Washington, on Long Island. That’s where my two beautiful daughters live. The days when I don’t have my girls, I’m on West 9th Street, where I share a townhouse with my girlfriend, Brittley Jarrell, who is the chief operating officer of Core. I’ve always been very active — I work out about four or five times a week. It’s usually a bike ride, between 20 to 75 miles [before work], and it’s usually loops in Central Park. Today, I ran seven miles along the Hudson. I also try to meet with my trainer once a week, to do push-ups, pull-ups, the rowing machine and rope-climbing, like back in my army days in South Africa. I was in the army for two years. There was six months of basic training, which was brutal. I was living in the bush, crazy stuff. [more]

    It’s been more than seven months since reports of the $88 million sale of Sanford Weill’s 15 Central Park West penthouse emerged, yet, in light of the recent $90 million-plus contract on a One57 penthouse and Steve Wynn’s $70 million purchase at the Ritz-Carlton, it continues to reverberate through the city’s real estate market. Brokers told the New York Times that they expect a slew of high-priced homes, including a handful asking more than $90 million, to hit the market in the near future. [more]

    Real estate power players turned out last night for the launch of Chelsea’s newest condo development.

    Indeed, the opening of sales at Walker Tower — the long-awaited residential conversion by JDS Development of an Art Deco building designed in 1929 by Ralph Walker — drew much attention from the residential real estate community. Town Residential’s Wendy Maitland and Reid Price, NestSeekers’ Ryan Serhant, Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Oren Alexander, Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes, and the Corcoran Group’s Robby Browne stopped by to take a peek at the building’s model unit on the tenth floor. The tower, at 212 West 18th Street, will not be completed until next year…. [more]

    From the June issue: Manhattan’s residential brokerage heavyweights are seeing the benefits of a recovering market, it seems.

    Almost across the board, Manhattan’s largest residential firms have retained agents or added to their ranks since last year, according to The Real Deal’s annual ranking of Manhattan’s largest firms. And while the overall number of listings has dipped by 1.5 percent, the dollar value of those listings has shot up nearly 12 percent, to almost $13.4 billion. [more]

    Shaun Osher’s Core has acquired residential real estate brokerage R.P. Miller & Associates, a firm founded by industry stalwart Reba Miller in 1998, Core told The Real Deal today. Miller will take the role of managing director of sales at Core, the company said, overseeing the firm’s agents and resale business.

    Osher confirmed that Miller would be bringing a few “select” members of her team at R.P. Miller & Associates to Core; “less than 10,” he said, declining to reveal their names. Susan Rubell, an agent at Miller’s namesake company based at 115 East 57th Street, said she and Lee Frankel would be joining Core, effective next week, but said she could not speak for anyone else. It was not immediately clear how many brokers R.P. Miller & Associates has in total, but the state Department of State’s website shows four licensed brokers in total.

  • Residential sales and rental brokerage Core launched an online listing and client management platform in collaboration with listings website Streeteasy.com today, dubbed Core Control, the brokerage announced (see video above for commentary about Core Control from the two companies’ heads).

    For an undisclosed monthly fee to Streeteasy.com, the system is available free and exclusively to Core’s agents and clients to help them more easily navigate citywide listings from all firms.

    Core described the platform as a comprehensive database of citywide listings from all brokerages represented on Streeteasy.com, with a few additional features added on, including the ability for Core agents to add private and public notes to a listing, link press coverage to properties and view broker-only information on listings, such as commissions and listing expiration dates. … [more]

    September marks The Real Deal’s 100th magazine issue (to be posted online tomorrow). In it, we will be bringing you some of the stories that made the biggest impact on us and on the market. In the meantime, here is what some industry execs have to say about The Real Deal’s magazine milestone as well as about what The Real Deal has meant to them in the publication’s eight-year existence. For example, Donald Trump, chairman and president of the Trump Organization, said: “The Real Deal has become more comprehensive in its coverage of the real estate industry in New York City and it has also become a valuable source of information. The Real Deal has done a terrific job.” Compiled by Lauren Elkies

    The cond-op at 305 West 16th Street in Chelsea, known for the 5,385-pound daisy sculpture atop its seven stories, is more than 50 percent in contract and closed its first unit today, Centaur Properties CEO
    Harlan Berger said.

    Since sales launched June 1, 29 units in the 53-unit building at Eighth Avenue have entered
    into contract, including two yesterday, Berger said, and eight units should close this week. He expects to close 51
    percent of the units by the end of September to secure Fannie Mae financing, which
    he called “critical” to the sales effort for the second half of the building’s units. … [more]
