“We let all brokers know that best and final bids were due on Monday evening by 8 p.m. — in total there were seven offers. I got a phone call at 7 p.m. on a Monday evening from Glenn Norrgard at Sotheby’s International asking the status of the apartment. He called me back with a verbal offer of the full asking price — all cash — to be considered with the other bids. After voicing my concerns to Glenn, he sent me a bank statement well in excess of the purchase price. I was still a bit skeptical, but nonetheless I relayed this to my seller and he decided to give this last party a chance to participate. We pushed the deadline back to noon and Glenn came to view the apartment at 10 a.m. the following morning. After viewing it, he came in at $2.65 million, all cash, with a closing at the seller’s convenience. We accepted the offer.” Stephen Ferrara, Town

“When you walk in, it just feels like the outdoor/indoor lifestyle you don’t really get in New York. That’s what sold the apartment. The buyers walked in and they fell in love with the outdoor space — the greenhouse and the two additional patios. The property is unique. The space is just big and it feels almost like an apartment in a tropical climate.” Alejandro Beitler, Citi Habitats

“This buyer had an arduous time purchasing his first apartment. First, he got a board rejection while working with a broker prior to me. When we got the contracts signed for this property, we were informed of a ‘new’ charge for closings after Jan. 14, of three months maintenance. This charge wasn’t disclosed in the minutes, but we were able to hurry the board package process and submission, and scheduled a closing for Jan. 14. After all that, we were then informed the actual effective date of this new charge was Jan. 1, and that despite this misinformation, the buyer would still have to pay it. I offered to cover one-third of it to help get the deal done and allow this buyer to finally breathe easy.” Holly Sose, City Connections Realty
