With an overflow of New York City investment sales brokers, it’s tough to know who to trust selling your multimillion-dollar building. A friend’s recommendation or an impressive swath of listings can give you an idea of which brokers and salespeople might be good, but it’s hard to be certain of their actual experience without an expensive subscription to another service. The Real Deal’s massive New York City real estate database, TRData, has over 7,000 completed transactions and their details in its commercial sales Deal Sheet accessible entirely for free.

To view the most recent commercial sales deals, simply visit the Deal Sheet and choose “Commercial sales” in the “Filter by Type” section. This allows you to see each recently added commercial sales deal, over 50 of which were added in July 2017.

If you’d like to manipulate your results, our Advanced Search’s Deal Sheet tab has even more options to find specific commercial sales transactions.

For example, if you wanted to see a list of commercial sales transactions valued at $20 million or more that were completed in 2017, you’d choose “Publication Date” from the “Filter by Date” drop down and choose the date range “01/01/2017” to “08/09/2017.” This results in 183 completed transactions. Using the arrows next to each field in the header, you can sort these results to see the most expensive ($2.2 billion sale of 245 Park Avenue) or even the largest by square footage (nearly 2.8 million square feet at 103 Eighth Avenue).

Using our ranking function, located on the top right of the Advanced Search results page, you can quickly tally up the price and square footage of buyers, sellers, brokerages and their agents.

If you wanted to see which brokers represented the sellers of these 2017 transactions over $20 million, you’d choose “Seller Rep Agent” in the Ranking drop down and click the Rank button. A new window will pop-up containing a list of the brokers who represented the sellers in these transactions and their totals for the year so far. According to the deals submitted to us so far this year, Darcy Stacom and Bill Shanahan have represented the most $20 million-plus transactions in 2017.
