Penny Crone, the Emmy award winner best-known for her lively New York Yankees reporting, is watching the World Series from her Midtown apartment this year. The former television sports reporter, 62, isn’t spending her retirement from the baseball world idling and nostalgic, though. Instead, she’s selling real estate with Prudential Douglas Elliman — very successfully. She is in the top 5 percent of brokers at the firm, having done more than $15 million worth of deals and winning a Chairman’s Circle Gold Award in 2008. Steven James, president of Elliman in Manhattan, said Crone has learned to tone down her big personality to get the deal done. “I watched her on a complicated deal where her personality just couldn’t be at the forefront, and she did it. She actually pulled it off. She took the back seat, the quiet role, which I’m sure was very unfamiliar terrain for her.”
