Last year, we were named the “Number One ‘Boutique’ Firm in New York!”
What’s interesting, is that we’ve consistently had around the same number of agents, so I’m a little perplexed by this current categorization. Either everyone else is shrinking, or our reach is growing. One statistic that has consistently reflected our brand, culture, and business model, is that we have the most productive agents amongst all firms. From the smallest ones, to the 8,000 pound gorillas.We are still David amongst Goliaths!
Our business model is to remain boutique in size and essence. Because by being boutique, we can continue to be:
Congratulations, and thank you, to my agents and staff who remain dedicated to achieving the same goal of delivering the highest level of innovative service to our clients. We pride ourselves on being the ambassadors of the evolution of real estate.

Who are our the world’s most sought-after starchitects? The documentary film, The Competition, follows quite a few: Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid, Dominique Perrault and Norman Foster, as they all work to create a winning design for the National Museum for Art of Andorra.
Although many of us are familiar with each of the selected architects’ designs, aesthetics and structures, we are rarely given the chance to see the preparation that actually goes into designing a structure that will be innovative, and above all, selected to be constructed. The film’s trailer currently listed on Vimeo, explains that viewers are able to see the “intensely fascinating account of how some of the best architects in the world, design giants like Jean Nouvel or Frank Gehry, toil, struggle and strategize to beat the competition.”
In New York City, we are lucky to be in the presence of works by many of these architects, but we’re looking forward to seeing how these titans of industry brainstorm, collaborate and win projects world-wide. The Competition is slated to be released in late 2013.
