“We put the property on the market on a Friday. By Tuesday, we had five offers — two of them were all-cash. It sold to the first couple who viewed it. They were downsizing — selling a big farm in Pennsylvania and moving here to be closer to their children and grandchildren, who live a few blocks away. They were only looking at properties that had gardens, so that attracted them to this apartment.” Nicole Galluccio, Prudential Douglas Elliman

“It was an all-cash investor deal, sight unseen. The buyer lives in Israel; he travels back and forth because his company [has offices] here. He flew in for a weekend and I showed him apartments, but he didn’t find anything he liked. Then I went and did virtual tours on my iPhone. I would shoot videos on my phone and put them up on my YouTube channel and I would say to him, ‘Take a look at these apartments.’ He was looking for something near Central Park and he knew the building, but the first time he saw this apartment in person was a week after the closing. Maybe in the future he might come live here, but for now he’s looking to rent it out. It’s being renovated, so we don’t know what price we’re going to put on it yet.” Virginia Incalcaterra, The Real Estate Group New York

“The seller lived in it with his wife, who passed away about a year and a half ago. It was too big for him, but he did not want to leave the building. I’ve lived in the building since 1967 — I sat on the board for 19 years and I was there when it was a rental, when I paid $212 a month for a one-bedroom. I know everybody in the building. I found him a one-bedroom where we were able to get a contract signed with a contingency: Until he found a buyer who passed the board for his two-bedroom, he would pay the seller an additional $1,500 per month beyond the deposit to hold the apartment. If he didn’t find a buyer after six months, he would get his deposit back, save for the $9,000. When we found a buyer and the deal went through, Halstead chipped in by taking $3,000 off from the commission.” Sue Marcus, Halstead Property
