Houlihan Lawrence offers “slice of life”

Residential brokerage Houlihan Lawrence, which specializes in sales in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties, has launched a new viral video feature, the firm announced, aimed at providing a “slice of life” from each of the cities it covers. The 28-video, 400-hour series features public officials, residents and historians from different towns, highlighting local hotspots, businesses and attractions. Through “one-on-one candid interviews” Houlihan Lawrence said it hopes the videos will offer insight on living in towns that can often be unfamiliar to outsiders.

Cobble Hill condo hopes kid activities will draw more parents

In an effort to draw in family-oriented buyers, the new Columbia Commons condominium in Cobble Hill is offering supervision for tikes complete with child-friendly diversions like coloring books and chalk. Exclusive brokerage Halstead Property Development Marketing said it launched the project at the 42-unit building in an effort to keep kids entertained while parents browse. “When the children are content, parents are less distracted,” said Halstead’s Kellee Buhler, the lead agent for the development at 110 Warren Street. So far, 20 units have sold at the building, which features a mix of one- and two-bedroom units, ranging in price from $420,000 to $685,000. A single three-bedroom unit with an asking price of $935,000 remains. TRD
