It seems that he’s not a lone wolf after all. A real-life inspiration for a minor character in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” has enlisted the help of brokers — and employing a hefty, nearly $19 million price chop — to sell his tricked-out Tribeca pad.

Alan Wilzig, a semi-professional racecar driver and entrepreneur, first listed his 6,500-square foot condominium at 7 Hubert Street for $43.5 million in October 2014, The Real Deal reported. Wilzig, who is depicted in the 2013 movie as introducing Leonardo DiCaprio’s character to his future wife, was selling the three-level pad — complete, at the time, with a neon-lit fish tank couch — sans broker.

The three-bedroom, 4.5 bathrooms maisonette is now asking $24.9 million or $3,828 per square foot, Curbed reported. Wilzig also hired Nest Seekers’ Ryan Serhant and Katherine Salyi for the listing, according to Curbed.

The pad also boasts a private garage, and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space. Also, the master bedroom can also serve as a safe room complete with Kevlar, steel-enforced drywall and a nearly 1,500 pound door with six deadbolts, according to the listing.

Wilzig, who formerly ran his father’s New Jersey-based bank that was bought out in 2004, bought the maisonette at the 33-unit, 16-story building, called the Hubert, for $4.5 million in 2005. [Curbed]Dusica Sue Malesevic
