Power broker Dennis Mangone likens the profession of selling apartments for celebrities to partying with them back in the days of Studio 54 (interestingly, Mangone helped hotelier Studio 54 co-founder Ian Schrager sell an $11 million four-bedroom duplex penthouse at 285 Lafayette Street last year, and they live in the same building), Interview Magazine reported.

The Prudential Douglas Elliman broker, who The Real Deal ranked as the top Soho luxury resale broker last year, said he’s seeing a boom in half-floor trophy apartments, those valued at $40 million and up.

Mangone said he’s not intimidated by celebrity clients, which have included Ricky Martin, Beyoncé and fashion photographer Mario Testino.

After 10 years in the business, he told Interview magazine, “I can deal with eccentric and unique people and not be flustered. It’s social science, understanding how people want to live.” [Interview]
