While the folks behind Streeteasy.com may be most closely associated with real estate listings and data points, they shrugged off the computer geek image last night for a holiday party at the Mondrian Soho hotel’s Mister H bar.
Sofia Song, vice president at Streeteasy, said more than 200 of the invited brokers, advertisers, clients and media guests planned to attend the event, at 9 Crosby Street between Howard and Grand streets, and the press of bodies last night seemed to bear out her tally.
Between the ruby-colored wingbacks, gilt-framed mirrors, Persian rugs and bird cages strung from the ceiling, the space evoked a cross between a boudoir and a colonial drawing room. Or, as Iman Bacodari, vice president and associate broker for the Jacky Teplitzky team at Prudential Douglas Elliman, put it, “Chinatown dumpling shop meets Spanish brothel … with a little English manor sprinkled in.” … [more]

International fashion model Anne Flore Trichilo has sold her 164 Bank Street apartment, according to public records filed with the city today. The Corcoran Group’s Tamir Shemesh, who represented Trichilo in the sale, said the unit closed Nov. 22 for $1.13 million.
Trichilo, who has worked with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and photographers such as Patrick Demarchelier, purchased the unit in 2001, according to public records, which did not reveal the price she paid. The 700-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit has Hudson Street views. The condo building, between Washington and West streets, features 24 loft-like apartments on 13 floors. … [more]
Last week, back when it wasn’t raining non-stop in New York City, the real estate industry convened in 15 Union Square West’s Penthouse 11 for an art, architecture and design showcase, “TENTOONSTELLING,” by the Going Dutch Foundation. The event, hosted by Avenue magazine, developer Brack Capital Real Estate and building marketing team Brown Harris Stevens Select, was put on in conjunction with the 23rd annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair. In addition to the collection of Dutch artwork, design pieces and architecture models on display, the penthouse itself, designed by Vincente Wolf, was officially unveiled. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom spread is on the market for $10.7 million. Check out photos from the event in the slide show above. TRD
Agent Vickey Barron has left Prudential Douglas Elliman, according to Core, the boutique residential brokerage where she’s starting on as a managing director. Barron’s move follows a recent exodus from Elliman, that has included high-profile agents Tamir Shemesh, who left for the Corcoran Group, and Ilan Bracha who launched a new Keller Williams franchise. Shaun Osher, CEO of Core, said he expects Barron to be “an educator and innovator” at Core. TRD … [more]
A 2,295-square-foot retail condo unit and former home of the famed Cedar Tavern has sold for $1.5 million, according to investment sales company Salmon & Marshall, which brokered both sides of the transaction.
The unit, located on the bottom floor of 82 University Place, a seven-unit condominium on the corner of 11th Street, was sold by Michael Diliberto, the building’s developer and former owner of Cedar Tavern, which counted Jackson Pollock and Jack Kerouac among its patrons during its roughly 40-year tenure.
The sale came under major duress from lender Flushing Savings Bank, according to Kevin Salmon, a partner at the firm who helped broker the deal. After almost five months on the market, the unit sold to property owner Ascot Properties for $1 million less than its original asking price, Salmon said…. [more]
The Real Deal has had an action-packed schedule. We hit up the Charity: Water event at 123 East 10th Street, the largest and priciest home available in the East Village, hosted by Rubicon Property. We stopped by Core’s cocktail party on the 17th floor of 812 Fifth Avenue, which was recently redesigned by architect Joseph Dirand. We also dropped by the Griffin Court condominium in Hell’s Kitchen, where Gumley Haft Kleier was hosting a viewing party of this week’s HGTV’s realty reality show “Selling New York.” Meanwhile, back at the office we were letting our fingers do the walking and got some fun nuggets.

Michael Bolla and Dennis Mangone — both larger-than-life types with rosters of high-profile clients to match — have joined the city’s largest residential brokerage, bringing in some celebrity cachet after the recent departure of a certain pair of Israelis.
Those are, of course, former managing directors Ilan Bracha and Tamir Shemesh, who until recently had sat at the helms of Prudential Douglas Elliman’s first- and fifth-ranked teams. Bracha left at the start of the year to launch the first Manhattan franchise of Keller Williams, while Shemesh followed a few weeks later to join the Corcoran Group. Shemesh told The Real Deal at the time that the similarly-timed departures were “purely coincidence.”
So too, it seems, are the new hires, as Elliman has apparently been after both Bolla, who had been running his own boutique brokerage operation for the past two decades, and Mangone, a top broker at Brown Harris Stevens, for years…. [more]
Another top team is leaving Prudential Douglas Elliman, the city’s largest residential brokerage.
Longtime Elliman broker Tamir Shemesh today announced that he is moving to the Corcoran Group — Elliman’s primary competitor — with his team of seven people. The move is the second high-profile departure for Elliman since the New Year. In January, super-broker Ilan Bracha — head of the top-ranked team at Elliman — left to launch the first Manhattan franchise of Keller Williams.
“I was ready for a change,” said Shemesh, who was a managing director at Elliman. “I found an opportunity at Corcoran, so we did it.”… [more]
